Last night was important. John Kasich said earlier that he should run as a Democrat. He's right, because he sounds just like one! He supports Common Core, Planned Parenthood, and other popular Leftist positions. Thanks John for making that all clear last night. We now know that you're REALLY a Moderate Democrat in Republican clothes. Go join Hillary and Bernie where you belong.
The BIGGEST LOOSER was RINO Rubio. We don't feel too sad about that because he betrayed the Tea Party voters who elected him to the US Senate. Rubio worked with the Gang of Eight to pass legislation that gives AMNESTY to ILLEGALS. Rubio hasn't ANY good explanation for this support. When he realized that he lost Tea Party supporters, he dumped the idea. He has no scruples! Last night Rubio showed that he cannot think on his feet. He looked like a deer in the headlights and was dumbfounded. He couldn't carry on a conversation because he was programed to give specific talking points no matter what happened. It didn't work. When challenged with questions he couldn't answer, he kept repeating the same rehearsed non-answer. It was so obvious, that it was embarrassing. Oh well. That should help him get knocked-down a notch or two where he belongs. He's NOT qualified to become President.
This ties-in together with Rubio's recent political endorsements. For example, Rick Santorum on live TV, couldn't list ANY achievements by Rubio as Senator! That's some endorsement! Perhaps it's because he has NONE! That makes you wonder what favors Rubio is calling-in from the Establishment GOP to help give him a boost in a close contest. The Establishment sees that their number one (JEB BUSH) is doing poorly and so they are now helping their OTHER Establishment candidate (Rubio). If you don't like career politicians, then Rubio should be off your list.
Trump on the other hand, didn't damage himself even though he managed to insult the audience a couple of times. They answered Trump with boos, which he sloughed-off. In spite of an argument with Bush over eminent domain, Trump succeeded in doing a decent job debating.
Ted Cruz clearly explained what happened in Iowa dispelling the Media's misrepresentation of the facts. He publicly and sincerely apologized to Ben Carson for the improprieties directed towards Carson in the Iowa Caucuses, showing Cruz has some class. Cruz did well and should be happy with his performance.
Other than one challenge against Trump, Jeb Bush did OK, but seriously, he doesn't have a chance at the nomination. He has oodles of money because he is the Establishment's first choice and that's the main reason why people don't like him! He's already bough and paid for and is part of the problem. He's a career politician and people don't want that this time around.
Chris Christie totally surprised Rubio and showed how he has way more energy than most other candidates - except Trump. However, Christie won't make the final cut either. Too little - too late. He was great in showing Rubio's weaknesses, but that won't be enough for him to win the nomination.
Ben Carson complained about the improprieties in Iowa (directed at Cruz). Other than that, he made no significant remarks that would give him the help he desperately needs to move up. Sorry Ben, you're a man of integrity, but that's not enough to get to the White House this time around.
So it still looks like Trump is on top. Time will tell.
