The GOP debate has begun on CNBC.

Introductions have begun.

I hope all the candidates smoke a little weed before the debate.  Cool

  I tuned in a little early and was impressed by the intelligent analysis of the commentators before the debate. It didn't have the super hyped up professional wrestling atmosphere like CNN. Then they asked intelligent questions and I was delighted that Ted Cruz snapped and had a hissy fit about that. What a mental sissy! As a fan of anti-intellectual buffoonery Huckleberry won my dipshit award for promising to cure cancer,diabetes,Alzheimer so we can end medicare! HEAL!(ROFLMAO)


  I am still hoping Dr Carson gets the nomination and then the day will come when someone asks him his opinion of people who go to church on Sunday. Spoiler alert the 7th day Adventists believe they all are damned for eternity. They didn't get a clue after the Mormon moron they ran last time.snicker

It was a perfect example of the state of the party.

Jebbyavis deflating; my impression of last night.
*******

"Wesley told the early Methodists to gain all they could and save all they could so that they could give all they could. It means that I consider my money to belong to God and I see myself as one of the hungry people who needs to get fed with God’s money. If I really have put all my trust in Jesus Christ as savior and Lord, then nothing I have is really my own anymore."

meh...it was not that enlightening.    too many candidates to receive any substantial information.   

Human nature leads people to put each other in neat boxes. Some put all women into one category, even though Sarah Palin and Hillary Clinton both exist. Black Lives Matter activists are arrested for civil disobedience nationwide, but we talk about “the black vote” as though Republican Ben Carson isn’t running for president and conservative Clarence Thomas isn’t a justice of the Supreme Court.

The Right Wing and the Left Wing come from the same bird.

CNBC monitors flopped big time on this debate.


The debate was supposed be on the ecomomy, and I thought it was a great idea, especially with CNBC being the source. How sadly mistaken we all were.


It had the 3 basic monitors, with 3 other "guests" who came up with questioning to throw at the candidates.


The worse thing is, the majority of the questions had absolutely nothing to do with the economy, with much of it being personal attacks towards the candidates.


I watched its entirity. What a farce.

The economy's doing reasonably well. Low unemployment, low inflation, reasonably steady growth, manufacturing up, etc.. What were they going to ask questions about? What are they going to say? That it's all Obama's fault?

"creationism" ... 2000+ years worth of ABYSMAL FAILURE ... and proud of it.

Regardless of how well you think the economy may be doing, the debate topic was supposed be about the economy. The moderators chose otherwise.
