CANDIDATES LOOK TO MAKE THEIR MARK … MIX IT UP WITH DONALD TRUMP
|| By FITSNEWS || Last night CNN broadcast the second “Republican” presidential debate of the 2016 election cycle – featuring the top eleven GOP candidates.
Who won? According to each of the candidates, they did.
During and after the debate, our email inbox was bombarded with dozens of news releases and statements from the various campaigns looking to capitalize on their candidates’ performance – and spin the results of the proceedings.
U.S. Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky – a guy who was desperate to gain some traction – released a series of complimentary tweets from journalists and supporters regarding his foreign policy views.
“Rand Paul just gave the smartest comments on foreign policy from a GOP debate stage in decades,” tweeted Timothy P. Carney of The Washington Examiner.
“Thank you, Rand Paul, for actually understanding the Middle East and presenting a rational foreign policy,” U.S. Rep. Justin Amash of Michigan tweeted.
Establishment GOP pollster Frank Luntz also liked Paul’s performance.
“Rand Paul hits back directly and intelligently. No dodging or politispeak,” he tweeted.
Wisconsin governor Scott Walker – whose campaign has been in free-fall mode of late – tried to highlight his ability to take the fight to GOP frontrunner Donald Trump.
Walker’s campaign released video clips of him telling Trump “we don’t need another apprentice in the White House,” and also released details of Trump’s four previous bankruptcies.
U.S. Senator Ted Cruz of Texas – a one-time Tea Party favorite eager to recapture some of the limelight – sent out a flurry of emails touting his opposition to U.S. president Barack Obama‘s Iranian nuclear deal. In fact during the debate, Cruz ran a television ad in Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Nevada
You know … even though he and every other U.S. Senator on the stage fell for a bait and switch on the agreement.
Former Florida governor Jeb Bush – the race’s former frontrunner and the top choice of establishment “Republicans” – sought to brand himself as a Ronald Reagan-style conservative.
“Jeb Bush was firm, confident and optimistic – and demonstrated that he is the real conservative reformer with a proven record in this field, and he knows how to keep our country safe,” a release from his campaign stated.
Bush’s campaign also released a video entitled the “Reagan Approach” seeking to further cement the comparison.
Finally, Bush touted his demand for Trump to apologize to his wife, Columba Bush, for remarks perceived as offensive to Latinos. Trump refused.
Making her first appearance on the “big stage,” former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina also went after Trump – questioning his use of a discredited Hillary Clinton ally to bash her.
“Carly was a successful CEO by any metric,” said Leslie Shedd, a Fiorina spokeswoman. “She nearly doubled revenue to more than $80 billion, tripled innovation to 15 patents per day, more than quadrupled growth, and grew HP to be the 11th largest company in the country. Jeffrey Sonnenfeld is a Clinton ally with dubious motives and no actual business experience. Donald Trump has questioned Sonnenfeld’s credibility in the past, but now is relying upon him to repeat the Democrats’ recycled attacks against Carly – and that speaks volumes.”
First Question: Where’s Hillary???…Hahahahahahahaha..Dumbass…(:
That said: The media ONLY wants the GOP to debate, so they can attack them w/ the regular Bullshit…And FITSNews is dutifully following what the media is telling its lemmings.
Bottom line: It’s ALL good. We need to see EVERY GOP candidate, because unless there is another total Fuck-Up by the American voter, our next president is in this group of Republicans..
So FUCK FITSNews, CNN, NYT and MSNBC…etc…DEAL WITH IT…
After your your seven years of ABJECT failure and The WORST American presidency in history…for you to even half-way think you can manipulate the Democrats into dodging your medicine, is Ignorance, and naivete on your part.
You SUCK…now STFU and let us clean up the fucking mess you have made of our country???..
Hillary was on Jimmy Fallon last night appearing brain injured or medicated with her comments and mannerisms.He pulled her hair,she giggled and made fun of the email scandal and FBI while loving on the Kartrashians.
I didn’t know Hillary was supposed to be on the debate stage. Did she switch parties?
She never did.She was a marxixt right out of college.Good catch.
Not wanting to be cruel, but I’m not sure which female candidate is worse – Hillary or Carly.
I understand. I know how much you and tomstickler love the work Planned Parenthood does destroying children and I am sure Carly upset you with her comments about that.
No. I just think she came out shrill. On all topics. Though her response to the Face question was very good. But outside that, she was just plain shrill. Hope she enjoyed that stage, she’ll only see it a few more times.
I don’t think it was-did you see her FACE? She looked like an angry Democrat woman. :)
Christie told her to shut the fuck up-that was his best moment!
Fat boy better be more concerned with the pending Port Authority scandal.
“Shrill” comment is sexist, my friend.
Sorry. Let me rephrase. She came out with all complaint, no substance.
Show your Priest the Planned Parenthood videos and see if he thinks there is any ‘substance’.
“Who am I to Judge” – Pope Francis.
So Hitler shouldn’t have been judged?
Yes, but he leans left so it’s ok.
America won last night.11 candidates of faith that love this country-and the Democrats can’t find ONE that is not a criminal or socialist.
Trump may win the nomination or not? What can’t be argued is that he has set the agenda for the Republican Party and the eventual nominee.No Amnesty/path to citizenship or voting.NO BUSH!Democrats are finished for a century.
Thank you Donald.
NOTE:Trump won the debate BIG on Drudge,Slate,Newsweek and Time.
Obama is president, health care reform is legal and constitutional, gays can get married, and Donald Trump is still successfully sabotaging the GOP primary.
That’s why I’m thanking Donald. Sanders/Warren 2016!
Obama is NOT my pResident….Obamacare will be taken apart piece by piece and Obama’s LEGACY in the history books will be????? Queer marriage for less than 2% of the population….LMAO!!!
Trump won’t be my president either. He won’t be anyone’s president though. He’s just there to ruin the rest of the Republicans’ chances. He is helping Hillary though but I’m still voting for Sanders.
Obamacare is here to stay and gays have equal rights now. Thanks Mr. Roberts!
Obamacare will be decimated by policy and E/O’s before it collapses.
Gay marriage? NOBODY fucking cares about pervertville-except that 1% .
Stop taking flip’s name, he’s voting for Sanders just like me.
You are right though, Sanders will replace Obamacare with real health care reform and fix this mess once and for all. Go Bernie!
I would have loved Bernie Sanders.
I’m a Jew. Nice try though. Leave my supporters GrandTango and flip alone!
I am for Bernie!
That Trump guy, wow, what a winner!
You keep talking about gay marriage so clearly it pisses you off.
Obama’s legacy.LMAO!Anal sex and brothels!Legalized perversion.
What are you talking about? Obama didn’t do jack with gay marriage, that was all SCOTUS.
You’re so gay you can’t even keep your facts straight.
Dude, can’t you stay away from gay sex and shit throwing. Please – for the love of God!!!
Flip is upset that there are no Gay folks who will propose to him . . .
It’s not gay, it’s Will. Will Folks.
Good post, flip. You are right, and that does not bode well for the Democrat Party.
I saw where the media is saying that the Republican Establishment was the real losers last night. All the top candidates are outsiders. Great news.
Carly doubled revenue by buying another company and then proceeded to lose money.
I good double the revenue of any business within months if I cut prices in half…who cares about profit, right?
Just what we need, a Reagan approach. That’s what started it all.
Is that why Obama has tried to compare himself as being as good as Reagan??..Dumbass…Hahahaha…(:
Poor Obama, he been fairly bad, but not Reagan bad. Glad to see he isn’t putting himself on a pedestal.
Bush was caught standing on his tiptoes for some of the pictures while standing next to Trump.
What a douchebag.
That shit eating smile by Bush reminded me of Gomer Pyle.
Remember guys: Jeb is the Libertarian/Moderates’ candiate.
FITSNews may not claim him, but Jeb leads very middle-of-the-road Libertarians, trying not to offend anyone, and be loved by everyone…just like McCain, FITSNews and Lindsay Graham…
Jeb is a moderate. I hate moderates. I’d rather have the real deal. Feel the Bern!
I would have loved Bernie Sanders!
You idiot, you should support Trump.
Mr. Stalin, I’m a huge fan of your work, can I get your autograph? LMAO!!!
Stop talking to yourself.
“Jeb is the Libertarian”
Stay off the crack.
Why insult a decorated Marine ?
Ding ding, ding – earlier winner today folks.
So Flip, I personally feel the best performance came from Kasich. He seems to be setting a strong moderate tone that will appeal to the 65% that are not all Trumped up. He’s a RINO no doubt, but I think he’ll replace Bush in this weeks polls alone, and push Rubio to the side.
Kasich stands no chance but agrees with Trump on immigration and is pro-life. Also against legalized drugs.
I don’t agree. I think Kasich over the long haul as one of the best chances. Walker’s done, Paul, done. Rubio – stuck in first gear. Bush – well he just plain sucks. Carly – flash in the pan, Carson – boriing, Huck – done. Cruz staying the slip stream. Christie just waiting for the hammer to fall with the next port authority scandal. No I think John with some advertisement can start to move the needle. He’s already moving up in NH.
Kasich? LMAO!!! He has as much chance as Haley does. Or Lindsay Graham.
There are 4 candidates that could be elected.Bush is not one of them.
OK, I see objective discussion time ended. Then let me add – Walker is out of his league. Huck got a big zero. And Rubio should be deported. He should have deported his Grandfather for not speaking English.
Just giving you facts Rocky. a Republican will be elected President in 2016.Obama has ensured that.
No Amnesty or path to citizenship.NO voting for illegals.
Flip, I’m not looking to discuss who wins in Nov 2016 – I’m interested in discussing what occurred last night at the debate.
Rocky, it doesn’t matter.ANY of them will defeat Clinton.They all said the same thing….NO Amnesty,pro life,Iran deal bad,for the veterans,jobs etc….
Actually, my take on Kasich is that he’s willing to live with the Iran deal. Hell he was defending the snap back provisions.
He defended the deal, as the only grown up in the room.
That was smart.21% of Americans agree with it.
The thing is, no one will even care about the Iran deal in another 96 hours (actually it goes in effect – right – about – now). But you hear from people over and over again about the deficits and the budget. And that’s Kasich’s strong point.
Trump gave McConnell some back bone and is putting the Democrats on the record that they hate Israel and don’t want our hostages back.
Brilliant.Iran deal will end when a Republican President cuts off Iran’s money.
The US President can cut off peoples own money? What’s he gonna do, invade Switzerland? You realize we’re not giving Iran money right, just release the hold on their own money.
It is not too late for the U.S. to back out of its obligations to provide sanctions relief to Iran and declare new terms for the deal. A Republican President will make it as difficult as possible for Iran to move money around the global financial system unless and until they open every military and every nuclear facility to real, anytime, anywhere inspections,release our hostages and recognize Israel.
Yeah, we have a few hours left.
Really. If we’re so good at it, how come we don’t stop the cartel money from moving around. The use HSBC.
He has moved up in NH because of his spending there, which is much higher than the others, plus he is seen as a moderate.
He won’t play in Dixie and that will be his downfall, even if he rises in the aftermath of this debate.
Bush looked flat. He showed zero emotion, and made no progress at all. “When I was governor of Florida” was the lead of every sentence he had. And —– no one gives a crap. I am starting to believe Jeb may be on the long sleigh ride down.
Half of the GOP contenders are like Jeb, reminiscing about their previous experience even if it is total crap like Carly’s and hoping it takes them all the way to the White House.
Donald trump isn’t letting that happen. Go Trump go! Sabotage those Pubs!
He and Hillary have A LOT in common…Hahahahahaha…and they are pulling about the same, after YOU GUARANTEED they’d be the nominees in Nov. 2106.
I stand in humble humiliation. I can’t believe what a weak candidate he is. I never liked Hillary anyway, but just figured it would be a legacy election – Bush v Clnton. Now – I don’t think either one will be the nominee of their respective parties. And you know what Tango – even as a lib – I say Good!!!
LMAO!!! Problem Democrats have(besides Obama’s failures) is Clinton WILL be the nominee.That train left the station long ago.
If they try and take her out the Clinton Mafia will end the Democrat Party.
A least he dropped that Veto Corleone bullshit.
Vito – not Veto.
Clear loser last night, WIsconsin Ranger Walker – he’s got as much appeal as flat Old Milwaukee in a warm can. Even the Packers wouldn’t vote for him.
He doesn’t come off well. Like Kasich a good governor-no appeal nationally.We just have so many damn qualified people.
Notice the Democrats don’t have any good, young candidates at the national level of politics.
Not any that seem to want to stand up. I always liked Mark Warner from VA. But he remains unusually silent.
Clear loser: Hillary, Bernie and Joe the walking gaff machine…
The more you try to hide, the more obvious your fear becomes….
While I admittedly didn’t watch the entire debate, what I did view was an unseemly free-for-all, with candidates shouting one another and the moderators down. I realize that the field is too large for a traditional debate but this format doesn’t leave anyone looking Presidential. Cruz did the best job looking straight at the camera and making his case directly to the American people but that also made him look a little phony. And while I understand their relentless attacks on the incumbent for the state of the union I still can’t figure out exactly how any of that can be blamed on Hillary, who is a private citizen at present. Ben Carson is a complete dud. He has no plan, and suggested that he’d just listen to everyone on every issue.
You don’t like him because he is a black Christian conservative.If he was a black Muslim that hated America you would love him.
I like Ben Carson. He’s better sleeping pills than even Bush. Now when I think of Bush I…..zzzzzzzzz! What? I’m awake. Right, Carson, watching him last nih…….zzzzzzzzzzzz!
Gentle Ben.Shame the Democrat Party doesn’t have anybody with a soul.
We’re hiding Robert Redford until the end.
lol…Hillary likes Kim Kartrashian,not Redford…
I actually had formed no opinion of him before seeing him last night. With him being a surgeon, I expected him to be extremely intelligent and have a bit of an ego. He’s out of his league. He essentially walked back every quote attributed to him criticizing the other’s plans.
The Democrats are Ignorant, hateful. petty and failed. You are everything Dr. Carson is not.
You just make yourself look more stupid the more you attack the man based on your ignorance, and failure. Please keep it up…
Rather than attacking me, why don’t you address the points I made?
Because your points are stupid, ignorance-based cliches. They originate because you fear Dr. Carson, not because of any substance…
It’s how you Democrats operate. You criticize what you most fear. You have to attack anything that exposes you for the total Fucking Failure, you are.
You are a complete and utter fool. Your comments are generally worthless, containing neither factual content nor coherent analysis. You add nothing to the debate, or to society in general. And when you’re put in your place by smarter people (which occurs daily) you reply with insults, throwing around references to fecal matter, and gay sex. So do us all a favor. Find a nice isolated rest stop on I-26, take a crap and find a gay boyfriend for some casual intimacy. And STFU.
GT is brilliant-a man of faith that applies his faith in the political arena and defends liberty.
A conservative man of principal that thinks outside the box-unlike liberals. Liberals are useful idiots for GT.
GT is a crazy guy who talks to himself, and repeatedly complements himself on his brilliance.
Love it when go HARD on another man!
No, he’s an [email protected]@wipe troll.
Wonder where such an upstanding “man of faith” learned such nasty language….
Only way to defeat evil bastards is to get down in the gutter with em.That is where they live.
Is it dark down there?
Let me ask. “Hey – Donald. Is it dark down there?”
**flipping through my Bible**
Funny, everything I’m reading says the exact opposite.
BT, GT, Flip, Get a job. Stop living on welfare. Get off Medicaid. You are a dumb lazy idiot. If you can’t find a job in this economy you are worthless. Go out an clean up the roads.
Easy baby.Being GAY is supposed to make us happy.
Why is the lifespan for hmoosexual men so much shorter than the hetero population? That may be why they are so pissed all the time.
Alrighty, then. Done with you.
So that means you’ll STFU. Mission accomplished…..NEXT!!!…(:
He can’t. The meth has injured his brain. He can’t put together much thought – so he just trolls.
Agreed flip. I think Dr. Carson scares the hell out of them. If he gets it, all the media and DNC dirty tricks crap will just sink them even worse than Obama’s abysmal record.
Sure sucks to be a Democrat.
Stop talking to yourself. It proves you are crazy. People already know you are an idiot, why let them know you are a crazy idiot.
Bring me a taco today with EXTRA sauce,honey.
Stop sucking your own dick, you ignorant liberal racist Fuck….
He doesn’t scare anyone. He puts them to sleep. Get that man off the stage. Take Walker, Huckabee, and Paul with him. Leave Hillary’s pal Donald there for comic relief and ratings.
How long have you been an IGNORANT Racist?
You suck Joe Biden’s Dick, after he ridicules Black people, and any ethnicity, not like him.
Dumbass people who attack based on race, always lose. You fucking bigot loser.
Ok once again the whole evening was all about killing Trump. The GOP establishment and the Koch family are very worried now. Despite their best efforts, they have failed to kill Trump. Last night was nothing new. Carly, the woman HP paid 21 million dollars if she would just go away and never come back, made a staged comment that all the networks, especially Fox, have been playing over and over, even though it was nothing.
Fox even pulled out their bought and paid for pollster, Luntz, and his fake focus group to talk about how the Republican electorate was angry with Trump for not answering his questions. What a load of crap. They are desperate to kill Trump. They fear irrelevance. Trump was the only person on the stage that did not work for either the establishment GOP or the Koch Brothers. Everyone else needs their money.
Every time they fail to kill him he wins. I guess what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.
And them hats. They are the bees knees.
OK, enough. I’ve got work to get down. Final Words – Tango – crap, dump, fecal urine stains, anal toys, gay men. That should keep you tied up for a while.
Have a good day Rocky!
Does that mean you are withdrawing your GUARANTEE that Jeb and Hillary would be the nominees, with Hillary, according to your guarantee, winning the presidency.
OR: are you admitting what a fucking idiot your are?
I already did that poop king. Read below.
Regardless of what Hillary does, stay or go, the Democrats chances are VERY slim, thank God. And if you love America, you should be elated because of that.
Democrat rule has been miserable for us. You have made us a broken and ugly country. Shame on you for that. You suck.
What I don’t understand is why Fiorina is wearing a dress… Ms. Lindsey doesn’t stand on protocol – even in a formal event like the debates.
If Hillary had been among this crow she’d have worn a pantsuit.
Paul – whiny male bitch with fucked up hair.
Huckabee – Televangelist duck dynasty two time loser.
Rubio – Pip squeak – too bad, cause he seems pretty smart and level headed.
Cruz – Bad ass, probably evil. “Cohiba?”
Carson – Amateur, decent guy, seems genuinely surprised to be surrounded by psychos.
Trump – Psychotic fucking asshole bullshit dick weed blowhard fuckbird
Bush – Prep school pussy
Walker – Looks like he got dropped on his head. Total douchebag.
Fiorini – Whiny tight ass C word. Get a sense of humor for fuck’s sake.
Kasich – I can believe his Dad was a postman. He should have become one too.
Christie – Probably can’t win, but he has ‘nads. Also has the biggest tits.
What a hopeless pack of pandering jack-offs.
Cohiba Cruz. Love it.
Clinton-lesbian brain injured drunk criminal
Sanders-communist redistributor of wealth that honeymooned in the USSR
Biden-plagerizing racist brain injured pervert liar using his dead son for political cover
U NAILED IT…Hahahaha…
Talking to yourself again? They have psychological treatment for that.
I think both guys summarized it perfectly. They need to be the next debate moderators.
People willingly forget that Biden told a crowd of black people that the ‘big banks’ were going to put them back in chains.
Wow, the GOP sure is fielding some candidates that will very strongly lose to me. Maybe I didn’t need Trump after all.
Cruz is a badass. He punk’d the shit out of ‘senior’ senators, and was a state-attorney for Texas. He also looks presidential. Very presidentlal.
Loved Ann Coulter’s take on debates last night.
“How to get applause from Republican donors,
1. Pledge to start a war.
2. Talk about job creators.
3. Denounce abortion
4. Cite Reagan
5. Cite Israel”
Big Loser: Democrat Party
Big Winner: The American People
Politics is the entertainment branch of industry.
Media, Military, Industrial, Political complex. The media needs the money generated by politics to continue to pursue the cause of their owners (GE, Westinghouse, Murdoc, Disney, etc) the politicians have to spend the tax money on things those corporations control or own, which pay money to the candidates to fund their elections which goes back to the media.
The “liberal” media is owned by corporations that have a vested interest in the status quo. And everyone forgets that. Remember the movie about the anti-corporate story 60 Minutes killed?
They have a Vested interest in maintaining the Greed of the corrupt, dishonest Democrat Party…You stuffs shit down the throats of the poor, backward and ignorant, all the while eating their flesh. You stupid Fucking Cliche…
In no particular order my top three candidates haven’t changed. It’s still Carson, Carly, Trump. Trump lost points last night, Carson Held his own, and despite Carly’s complete meltdown over the drug question she gained points. (Marijuana is not the same a prescription drug addiction which is what killed her daughter).
SAN JOSE — Hewlett-Packard said Tuesday it will lay off up to 33,000 more employees as the storied Silicon Valley tech giant prepares to split in two.
As usual, The Rude Pundit gets to the heart of the matter. http://rudepundit.blogspot.com/2015/09/random-observations-on-clusterfuck-at.html
If you’re too fucking stupid to offer something yourself…Shut the Fuck Up…Don’t go running to some liberal website that tells your ignorant ass how to think.
They told you idiots to vote Obama, and he fucked up the country….Dumbass…
I like how Cruz and Christie were the only ones who stayed on topic and didn’t take part in the ‘Donald Trump Bashfest’ stupidity.
