Even I’m starting to get tired of these Republican debates. I can’t stand the politicians and their political speak, and I definitely despise all the back-and-forth on who submitted this Senate bill and what it does and how who voted against said bill. It’s just total nonsense and makes my eyes roll into the back of my head.

That being said, folks who visit this site demand the unfiltered (and, I might add, always correct) political commentary I offer. I haven’t been wrong yet, so here it goes:

Helped: Donald Trump, Chris Christie, Marco Rubio, Rand Paul.

The big story of the night is Trump’s commitment to the GOP, win or lose. It doesn’t surprise me – heck, he’ll just go back to being a billionaire if he doesn’t get the nomination – but I’m guessing this was all planned out from the start. Christie did OK as tough against terrorism. Rubio is OK – to me he comes across as a little too cute, but he obviously knows his stuff, and for mainstream conservatives he’s a heckuva lot more likeable and personable than Ted Cruz, who is really starting to annoy me. Paul stood up for his libertarian beliefs and, while his campaign is dead in the water, I enjoyed hearing his viewpoint.

No Impact: Carly Fiorina, John Kasich.

I’ll admit that while I was once impressed by Fiorina I’ve tuned her out – all she does is play the female “me vs. Hillary” card and it doesn’t impress me. And I don’t care that she was CEO of a big company – you can’t compare the decisions you made at HP with the ones you’d have to make in the Oval Office. Although, if I’m Donald Trump, she’s worth at least a consideration as his attack dog VP if only to drive the Hillarybots out there crazy. As for Kasich, he’s like the crazy uncle you keep in the attic. I used to like him as a FOX News show host, but he’s become a caricature of himself. Considering he was a nowhere man before the debate, he’s still there, so he didn’t hurt himself.

Losers: Ted Cruz, Jeb Bush, Ben Carson

Ted Cruz loses because he just wouldn’t shut up. Ted, when the bell goes ring-adding-ding wrap it up! Look, I’ve tried to like the guy, but there’s something about him that just annoys the hell out of me. Tonight he came across as rude and condescending to just about everyone and everything. Not sure what he was selling at the debate but it wasn’t flattering. Jeb! Bush was a joke. He couldn’t even give his closing talk without falling all over his words. The beating he took by Trump has to hurt: he’s spent hundreds of millions of PAC money and he’s moving further away from the center of the stage. Say goodnight, Jeb. As for Carson, I have no clue as to what he was talking about and he seemed asleep half the time.

Regardless of how the phony elites in the mainstream media try to sway it, the takeaway from this debate is that Trump, by way of once again holding his own, is the winner when the dust settles. How it translates to Iowa and New Hampshire in another month or two is anyone’s guess.

Believe it or not, here’s a picture of the “official” Jeb Bush debate watching party. Say goodnight, Jeb.

  1. Spot on, Brother! Could not have said it better. As much as I like Trump’s candid “devil-may-care” approach, when it finally comes time to vote, I’m not sure enough of the public is going buy. I was hoping Cruz could step up, but I agree, he did not come across well last night. One thing for sure, they have to narrow the field. The round robin last night was painful. Leave Trump, Cruz & Rubio, perhaps throw in Christie for entertainment value. Everyone else can queue up for the VP debate.

  2. A debate between Trump, Christie, Cruz and Rubio would be an event for all seasons. I’m on that like white on rice. Oh wait, did I say something racist??

  3. …and I’m still not opposed to Carly Fiorina as a VP candidate. I think she’d be a great asset.
