Hey Adlib, do you know if it’s going to be streamed?
escribacat

Hi escrib! Unfortunately, CNBC is hosting the debate and limiting live feeds to those who have cable or satellite subscriptions.
AdLib 13 days ago
Those who do can go to CNBC.com and login with their provider account info, otherwise, we’ll be keeping folks up to date on what’s being said on our live chat.
AdLib 13 days ago
Hello AdLib. The debate, well the CNBC coverage has already started here. I’ll try to come back at 8p.m. see you then.
monicaangela

13 days ago
Hola, kids! A kind friend let me use her xfinity password. (Should I admit that?) So I’m going to try to watch. The feed is a bit glitchy, but holding up so far. All the commentators seem to be GOP so we can see that CNBC is going to be very impartial on this one… Sigh…

So far – the question is this new budget deal and the answer Lindsey gave is: “ISIS — Be afraid.”
kesmarn

13 days ago
Bobby Jindal proud of the fact that 30,000 State workers have been thrown out of work in LA. They were all “bureaucrats.” So not to worry.

Harleigh

How? Made them all eat peanut butter?
AdLib 13 days ago
Well, we’ll have the big clown car coming up shortly!
AdLib 13 days ago

Harleigh

13 days ago
Carson is going to blow up on the economic questions in our view but the RW religious extremists won’t care.
AdLib 13 days ago
Piyush is so full of shit and says LA is in the black with a balanced budget. holy shit. How can anybody believe this garbage?
Harleigh

13 days ago
The CNN crew is baggers!! LOL
Harleigh

13 days ago
CNBC crowd too!
AdLib 13 days ago
Heh, I know you meant them!
AdLib 13 days ago
That mook who “interviewed” Jindal was an extremist RW puppet, just blathering all the Fix News talking points. Theyreally think that works with anyone other than the fellow brainwashed?
AdLib 13 days ago
Is Jeb! relevant? we will find that out I think
Beatlex

13 days ago
Jeb has always been irrelevant. Hey Beatlex!
AdLib 13 days ago
Hey Ad!
Beatlex

13 days ago
I really hope Jeb overreaches tonight and buries himself for good.
AdLib 13 days ago
And the Donald should provide some good laughs
Beatlex

13 days ago
Looking for Trump to come off as a desperate loser and Carson to come off as the clueless fool he is. Or as Republicans would describe it, “presidential”.
AdLib 13 days ago
i’m only watching hoping for a trainwreck
Harleigh

13 days ago
Harleigh, is there any other way a GOP train runs?
AdLib 13 days ago
grow the economy replaces their last cycle chant of laser focused on jobs jobs jobs. LOL not 1 bill. assholes.
Harleigh

13 days ago
They left out “Grow the economy…of the 1%!”
AdLib 13 days ago
thats the full context.
Harleigh

13 days ago
Who the hell would listen to Ari Fleischer, the voice of going to war in Iraq on a lie?
AdLib 13 days ago
He looks a bit cockeyed…or more accurate.
AdLib 13 days ago
Fleischer thinks that echoing Ronald Reagan will win an election in 2016? Get out the disco balls, Ari!
AdLib 13 days ago
dance fever!
Harleigh

13 days ago
Inasnity Night Fever! Uh, uh, uh, staying alive!
AdLib 13 days ago
santorum hasnt mention jebus or vaginas this cycle. i’m shocked
Harleigh

13 days ago
Santorum is waiting until Jesus comes back as a woman.
AdLib 13 days ago
I hoped I would find you all here….howdy…..at a debate watch event (my Trump friends)…..will share as the night goes on….how is everyone.
MurphTheSurf3

13 days ago
Hey Murph! Cool, like hearing their reactions to the debate.
AdLib 13 days ago
It is a pretty mixed crowd emotionally….I have been here for an hour and lots of folks are talking about Trump’s poll decline.
MurphTheSurf3

13 days ago
I never watch CNBC so it is like walking into a freezing shower of RW greed and ignorance. At least that’s how the TV Guide describes it.
AdLib 13 days ago
Murph – Are they worried it’s a permanent decline?
AdLib 13 days ago
BRB!
AdLib 13 days ago
Trump was begging Iowan’s yesterday,how pathetic! LOL
Beatlex

13 days ago
BTW, do any of these candidates at 2% or lower really think there’s a reason for them to campaign?
AdLib 13 days ago
Ad…they are….the media is to blame, big money is to blame, the attacks by the fake GOP are to blame….and maybe, just a little bit, Trump is at fault..why? too nice….unbelievable.
MurphTheSurf3

13 days ago
We “watched” the sideshow early debate….what a bunch……the room barely noticed.
MurphTheSurf3

13 days ago
those 4 klowns don’t have a 1% combined. stupid
Harleigh

13 days ago
BTW, have I told you all that the Trumpsters have these gatherings at the local VFW…..lots of military “stuff” all over the place.
MurphTheSurf3

13 days ago
Anyone have the link? the one I have is not working
Beatlex

13 days ago
Ad, every day a 2%’er stays in is another potential book deal or scam they can affiliate themselves with. They’re working the pole man!

funksands

13 days ago
Beatlex….Here are the livestream options Watching Donald Trump, Ben Carson, Jeb Bush and the rest of the Republican presidential hopefuls duke it out Wednesday will be difficult without a cable subscription, as there won’t be a free online stream of Wednesday’s GOP debate. CNBC, host of the third Republican debate, will make a stream available on CNBC.com and on the network’s mobile apps — but a cable login will be required to tune in.

Hi there funk…..
MurphTheSurf3

this cnbc station is really shitty. really shitty.
Harleigh

Beatlex….For those without access to cable TV, there’s always social media, where you can follow reporters and political sites for the latest. Live blogs will also help with following along in real-time. On Twitter, check out the hashtag #CNBCGOPDebate to stay updated on what’s happening.

Murph,I don’t do social media!

Hi Everyone. Sorry I am going to be ducking in and out for the first little bit.
funksands

13 days ago
Okay, the clowns are in the arena, the show begins. Good evening everyone!
monicaangela

13 days ago
Hello funksands!
monicaangela

13 days ago
hi Monica!
Harleigh

13 days ago
Hello Harleigh! It appears Jeb! doesn’t feel his brother tore the country down…that’s puzzling.
monicaangela

13 days ago
“If we’re willing to do what’s necessary we can make the 21st century the new American century. So that’s why I will build a bulletproof dome over the United States if I am elected
funksands

13 days ago
no shit. it’ll be his downfal.
Harleigh

13 days ago
Hi Monica!
funksands

13 days ago
funksands, does that mean only the people under the dome will be assasinated, and not anyone else in the world? With all the guns will have here, there is bound to be bullets rocosheting off of that dome.
monicaangela

13 days ago
Hi Funksands!
monicaangela

13 days ago
Monica, what do you have against the 2nd amendment? Pinko
funksands

13 days ago
I didn’t know the President had spending authority now. Good job Rand. That is a problem
funksands

13 days ago
funksands, you nailed it. I’m a Pinko.
monicaangela

13 days ago
Oh God, we’re back to the wall again.
monicaangela

13 days ago
Hey folks, had a quick job now back!
AdLib 13 days ago
Welcome back AdLib!
monicaangela

13 days ago
Jeb’s face is red! Are his pants on fire?
AdLib 13 days ago
Uh-oh! Ben! has to do math!
AdLib 13 days ago
I doubt it AdLib, they are probably wet by now.
monicaangela

13 days ago
forget the fuckin wall,and trump just fell out with what he saying for his tax plan
Harleigh

13 days ago
Ben lies! “I didn’t say it would be 10%.” Yes you did.
AdLib 13 days ago
Carson thinks you can trim $1.1 trillion from the U.S. budget???
AdLib 13 days ago
Wow, it appears everybody is off their game tonight. Of course they haven’t forgotten how to lie, I guess that comes natural.
monicaangela

13 days ago
Ad, if you cut all funding to planned parenthood and international aid to Palestine that just about gets us there
funksands

13 days ago
Kasich is flushed face too! And his attitude towards the other Repubs may not be so well received by Repub voters.
AdLib 13 days ago
If Carson gets into office there will probably be more than 1.1 trillion cut. We will be holding the country together with duct tape and bandaids.
monicaangela

13 days ago
If Carson gets into office, there will be trillions less in revenue as a mass migration to Canada happens.
AdLib 13 days ago
Kasich sounds so annoying.
AdLib 13 days ago
Democrats really really really need to stop cheering for lower deficits. That canard has given the GOP a political lever against the Dems that they’ve been pulling for 40 years.
funksands

13 days ago
Kasich is the only one up there who knows the truth and is willing to speak it.
MurphTheSurf3

13 days ago
fucking bozo talk now….
Harleigh

13 days ago
That isn’t fair AdLib, you won’t be able to give a flush faced report on Carson, and believe me I’m sure he is about now.
monicaangela

13 days ago
Lehman! Drink! Good for Donald
funksands

13 days ago
Heh! Trump just slamdunked Kasich!
AdLib 13 days ago
Kasich is also not going to appeal to the GOP primary voter…
MurphTheSurf3

13 days ago
Don’t be fooled by Kasich’s apparent rationality. He’s a total Koch-toady. And Trump is — for once — speaking truth!
kesmarn

13 days ago
Murph – Yep, that’s what I’d think. He comes off as a snobby elitist and has no clue.
AdLib 13 days ago
I agree funksands. Republicans don’t worry about lower deficits when they get into office. They spend out the Wahzoo and then blame the dems.
monicaangela

13 days ago
hahahaha trump
Harleigh

13 days ago
Carson is more and more annoying and more and more dippy everytime I see him….
MurphTheSurf3

13 days ago
Go Trump! (Did I just say that?)
kesmarn

13 days ago
Spot on Kes! Kasich is a snake in sheeps clothing. I can almost seee the strings attached to the back of his suit. Wonder how the Koch brothers managed that.
monicaangela

13 days ago
Uh oh…Carson is flopping and a flipping on the numbers!
AdLib 13 days ago
Kasich was the Managing Director of Lehman Brother’s investment banking divsion
funksands

13 days ago
No billionaire pays less than his secretary! The lie of the flat tax…
MurphTheSurf3

13 days ago
A family of four living on 36,000 and then anything after that is too much I guess. I sure wish we could make these guys live on such meager wages.
monicaangela

13 days ago
nein nein nein!!! LMAO
Harleigh

13 days ago
Cruz is crazy with his flat tax, claiming it pays for everything when it doesn’t.
AdLib 13 days ago
Dynamic scoring is code for “people eating dog food.”
kesmarn

13 days ago
funk…kasich gets to dive under the charge as he was NOT on the board but your info is actually worse…he was helping to drive the locomotive
MurphTheSurf3

13 days ago
I believe Carson is allergic to numbers, even the mention of them appears to be causing a reaction.
monicaangela

13 days ago
Carly -“Stop talking about tax reform, get it done. On three pages. Now I’m done talking about it.”
AdLib 13 days ago
Murph, oh yeah. Being on the board of a firm like that is really window dressing
funksands

13 days ago
Is dog food less expensive than Cat food? If so then I suppose you’re right Kes.
monicaangela

13 days ago
When is someone going to ask who they are going to cut taxes on?
funksands

13 days ago
Fiorina….the Economic Florence Nightingale….what crap..given her record.
MurphTheSurf3

13 days ago
Does anyone think Fiorina made any sense?
AdLib 13 days ago
Monica, it depends on how “dynamic” you wanta get!
kesmarn

13 days ago
Carly believes she is going to get it done. LOL!!!
monicaangela

13 days ago
We know who it won’t be funksands. It won’t be those who can afford a tax cut.
monicaangela

13 days ago
Rubio: “Finish what you I started? Accomplish something? Hell, I’m a Republican!”
AdLib 13 days ago
Kes! LOL!!!
monicaangela

13 days ago
Rubio was just called “kid….grow up first and then go for the big chairs….” Obama did the same BUT in his campaign he proved he could do it…..Rubio…nope.
MurphTheSurf3

13 days ago
Rubio immediately after inauguration: “I hate this job!!”
kesmarn

13 days ago
When are they going to ask Ruboio to stop accepted a paycheck for not doing his job?
monicaangela

13 days ago
LOL hell never get elected here in floriduh again
Harleigh

13 days ago
Murph – Obama was a community organizer before becoming a state Senator. What about Rubio? No real experience.
AdLib 13 days ago
Bush spanking Rubio…..
MurphTheSurf3

13 days ago
Points to Rubio. Congress doesn’t actually do anything
funksands

13 days ago
Poor Jebby, he looks like a whiny loser spanking Mario.
AdLib 13 days ago
What were you guys thinking Harleigh?…How did he get elected in the first place?
monicaangela

13 days ago
And Rubio is stabbing Jeb then claims, “I’m not going to attack anyone.”
AdLib 13 days ago
Oh my goodness, no Rubio didn’t say that. I guess somebody told you to attack me. Is he referring to the emergency meeting at the Bush compound? LOL!!
monicaangela

13 days ago
I think so, MA!!
kesmarn

13 days ago
Right AdLib, they can’t even follow their own narative.
monicaangela

13 days ago
Harwood is doing a good job I think. Confronting candidates on facts but not trying to whip up fights between candidates.
AdLib 13 days ago
Ad Lib…agreed about Harwood…
MurphTheSurf3

13 days ago
I agree AdLib, he won’t get to do this again. You can count on it.
monicaangela

13 days ago
Jeb whining about the economy…er…where was the economy when the last Bush left office?
AdLib 13 days ago
Rubio got the hispanic cubans and the baggers in a wave. he’s now toast.
Harleigh

13 days ago
Carly is lying, the NASDAQ dropped before she was CEO of HP!
AdLib 13 days ago
His brother not only “kept us safe,” he “made us prosperous” too?
kesmarn

13 days ago
AdLib, that’s a low blow. You can’t say anything bad about his brother, he’ll be crying so hard he won’t be able to continue the debate. Leave his big brother alone.
monicaangela

13 days ago
MA – Aw…I think I hurt his widdle feewings.
AdLib 13 days ago
Oh, so you are one of the 1% Kes. I thought so. You’d have to be, because the rest of us got screwed.
monicaangela

13 days ago
AdLib, you did, and daddy Bush will be calling you the first time. Need I say you don’t want to have to hear from Barbara…I’d cool it if I were you.
monicaangela

13 days ago
Carly looks like she’s had a more recent facelift, she looks different.
AdLib 13 days ago
Carliar.
AdLib 13 days ago
Ad, I think she just colored her hair and eyebrows
funksands

13 days ago
Bush is SO stuck…he has to defend his brothers economic, social, political, military policies and outcomes AND AT THE SAME TIME not seem to be running for a Bush third term….horrifying.
MurphTheSurf3

13 days ago
Funk – Yep, that could be it. She looks very different.
AdLib 13 days ago
Not a facelift, a scrape, that’s all new skin.
monicaangela

13 days ago
Murph and the worst part is he doesn’t even want to run. Kafkaesque
funksands

13 days ago
You blew my rich-girl cover, MA!
kesmarn

13 days ago
Ad, or she’s recently filled up on blood and it’s made her younger
funksands

13 days ago
No Kes, you blew it. You know some of us are paying attention here.
monicaangela

13 days ago
Carly has Mrs. McCain’s helmet-hair do.
kesmarn

13 days ago
Monica – You know better than I do, thanks for filling me in on that!
AdLib 13 days ago
Cruz…hitting the one and only thing that the crowd is cheering is “hate THE MEDIA”
MurphTheSurf3

13 days ago
Kes, please call Barbara Boxer and tell her that. She’ll love it.
monicaangela

13 days ago
It was all about hair back then, wasn’t it? LOL!
kesmarn

13 days ago
CRUZ….appeal to the base…..that is all there is for him.
MurphTheSurf3

13 days ago
No problem AdLib. I know because I said some bad things about brother George, and that’s what happened to me.
monicaangela

13 days ago
Cruz, getting the sound bite of the evening so far…
kesmarn

13 days ago
Yep, the word was out that a number of Repubs planned on attacking the moderators. And voila!
AdLib 13 days ago
Cruz…..just got knocked back…good.
MurphTheSurf3

13 days ago
That’s right Kes, I think she had Barbara changes her hair style every other day.
monicaangela

13 days ago
cruz couldnt answer the question,
Harleigh

13 days ago
Is anybody going to vote for Rand Paul?
monicaangela

13 days ago
Ad…but the mods make it clear…attack us and you use up your time…period….for the GOP primary crowd that is ok but for the rest of us…the general electorate the kiss of death
MurphTheSurf3

13 days ago
Really, Rand thinks the entire credit rating and economy of the US should be used for extortion, even if it devastates the country?
AdLib 13 days ago
Harleigh, are you surprised about that?
monicaangela

13 days ago
Ideology uber alles, Rand!
kesmarn

13 days ago
Murph – Yep, it’s an obvious ploy that doesn’t register with most voters, just their media-hating base.
AdLib 13 days ago
If Rand were somehow miraculously nominated and then voted into the Presidency he would be like a deer in headlights, he’d have to call Daddy Paul to help him.
monicaangela

13 days ago
cruz never answers question.
Harleigh

13 days ago
Christie is now having a heart to heart talk with the home audience like last time…..and it had no effect the last time……
MurphTheSurf3

13 days ago
Christie’s answer for doing the wrong thing, “Why didn’t you ask people a long time ago why they did the wrong thing?” Because you’re on the stage in a debate!
AdLib 13 days ago
Christie is lying about Social Security…insolvement in 7 years…has he lost his mind?
monicaangela

13 days ago
MA – He’s the human embodiment of a sack of manure.
AdLib 13 days ago
Christie just gave at least two seniors in the audience a heart attack with that line
funksands

13 days ago
A friend here, who is GOP, just said “They are saying Nothing…no content…..empty.”
MurphTheSurf3

13 days ago
Is Huckabee still in the race?
monicaangela

13 days ago
Yeah, where is he?
kesmarn

13 days ago
Ma….obviously, no.
MurphTheSurf3

13 days ago
Funk – They didn’t have heart attacks, they just couldn’t bear the idea of not having Christie as President.
AdLib 13 days ago
I agree with that AdLib..poor excuse for a clown from the infamous clown car.
monicaangela

13 days ago
Murph, are you refering to the Christie comment or the Huckabee comment.
monicaangela

13 days ago
Murph – Yep, agree with them, it’s all about one thing…blame. Blame the other candidates for things, blame Obama, Hillary and Dems for everything, blame people in the past for everything.
AdLib 13 days ago
Ma….probably both…neither is really in the race now.
MurphTheSurf3

13 days ago
Right, AL. Almost universally negative.
kesmarn

13 days ago
I agree with you on that Murph. Do they call them back for filler, or so that the front runners won’t have to answer too many questions or what?
monicaangela

13 days ago
They have no answers. It’s all magical thinking, they want their tax plans, SS changes and everything to work just because they want it to. Oh great, Cruz now wants to end SS and Medicare, just have private savings account.
AdLib 13 days ago
all of these idiots are in single digits except crazy carson and trump. BWAHAHAHA
Harleigh

13 days ago
When will Cruz and the rest of these high minded individuals realize they are not going to be able to take Social Security from the tax payers and give it to the vultures?
monicaangela

13 days ago
Is there any reason any person of color would vote for ANY of these guys? Just a thought…
kesmarn

13 days ago
Social Security doesn’t rely on taxes to pay benefits. Treasury just pushes a button and checks get sent. Ingorant liars are the worst kind.
funksands

13 days ago
Right Harleigh, and Trump and Carson have decided to take a breather and let those that have nothing show why they have nothing.
monicaangela

13 days ago
That’s ’cause Bernie Madoff is a Democrat, Buddy.
kesmarn

13 days ago
A. Government is stealing your money. B. Republicans have controlled government frequently and do today. C. Er…
AdLib 13 days ago
A $2000 a month SS payment is the equivalent of a personal account of $480,000 that you can’t outlive, can’t foolishly spend, and that you get cost of living adjustments on
funksands

13 days ago
Yay, funk! Numbers and truth!
kesmarn

13 days ago
Social Security is the greatest anti-poverty government program in the history of the earth. THAT’S why it must die
funksands

13 days ago
FUNK….that is brilliant….
MurphTheSurf3

13 days ago
Payroll taxes funsands, but the program is solvent and could be even more solvent if they would raise the cap so that the wealthy could pay the correct amount.
monicaangela

13 days ago
Funk – Appreciate the numbers breakdown!
AdLib 13 days ago
thats the bottom line Monica
Harleigh

13 days ago
LOL!!!! Numbers break down? Bwahahahahahahhahahah!!!!
monicaangela

13 days ago
Funk – But isn’t that the point? Wall Street wants to get their hands on all that SS money so they can manipulate the market and steal it from seniors. We all know who really steals our money!
AdLib 13 days ago
NO guys and Gal! It is the corporations raping seniors AND the rest of Americans! Fools.Yht e debate is intense though!
Beatlex

13 days ago
I know that, and you know that Harleigh, now all we have to do is educate the clowns on that stage.
monicaangela

13 days ago
This may have been mentioned earlier, funk, but I was wondering how the amenities are there at the Trump Hotel?
kesmarn

13 days ago
Monica, that’s fine if you want the accounting to work. But SS isn’t reliant on FICA to fund its payments. IF you raise the cap, you also have to increase benefits to higher earners so you don’t run SS into welfare.
funksands

13 days ago
That removes its only political cover
funksands

13 days ago
All a Dem would have to do is remind viewers where America was left after Bush’s trickle down, tax cuts for the rich, unregulated economy.
AdLib 13 days ago
Ad, for sure. Managing Directors of the Investment Banking division lay awake at night fantasizing about that day
funksands

13 days ago
Hey folks, just popped in for minute.
KillgoreTrout

13 days ago
Hey, Homie!
kesmarn

13 days ago
You left a little out AdLib. Steal it from seniors, issue credit cards to seniors and own them up to and including the time when they are living on the streets in garbage bags.
monicaangela

13 days ago
hey KT
Harleigh

13 days ago
Kes, I’m at the Mirage. I wouldn’t stay at any shithole that asshole owns
funksands

13 days ago
Hey Kes and Harleigh.
KillgoreTrout

13 days ago
And he doesn’t even own half of them, funk. Just sells naming rights…
kesmarn

13 days ago
Are the brats tearing each other apart?
KillgoreTrout

13 days ago
I want a carso foopa on tv
Harleigh

13 days ago
MA – But seniors with no income couldn’t get new credit cards, they would indeed have to use up whatever credit they had before being unable to pay their bills.
AdLib 13 days ago
Hey KT!
AdLib 13 days ago
They sure are, Homie — especially Rubio and Bush.
kesmarn

13 days ago
Who says you have to raise benefits for the wealthy? A little yes, but not comensurate with what they pay in. Social Security is just that, a program for the poor and middle class. The program was created so that the wealthy would not be able to work people from the cradle to the grave.
monicaangela

13 days ago
Hey Ad. Yeah, Rubio’s former mentor! HA!
KillgoreTrout

The credit would be issued while they had their Social Security. Once they went on the plan that these republicans are trying to sell we all know that would have to run up a tab on those cards to try to keep their heads above water. It would be like they did when they extended lines of credit to homeowners they knew were going to be broke right after they signed on the dotted line….after all, they were the ones sending their jobs out of the country, lowering wages, cutting working hours, etc., etc., etc.

Monica….SS financing was always based on the idea that the overall economy would subsidize it…..which means that those making the biggest money would be paying in far more than they get out…at one time $109,000 was really big money but today not even close…so the payout levels need to be fixed with this in mind.

AdLib, are you actually listening to Carly? Haven’t you read about her wonderful career at HP? Don’t you realize she isn’t talking about government as you and I perceive it, she’s trying to figure an angle, where she gets in, spends 4 years creating a golden parachute and skydives out.

AdLib 13 days ago
Yes Murph, I believe I read that somewhere. I also read that it could probably be done without doing that. The problem with that is the only people living longer in this nation are the wealthy. So if you make people wait until they are 70 a lot of the people we are trying to help won’t be around to collect. And, a lot of people can’t continue to work until they are 70. What will they do while they wait? You know most people in the nation these days don’t have a Pension. SS is their only income after retirement.

Absolutely Murph, when will we begin to realize that the wealthy are not wealthy because they don’t own businesses where people labor day in and day out. The problem is that recently, just as it was before the crash in the 20’s, the wealthy get greedy, work people to death, and refuse to share the wealth. Do you or anyone for that manner think a CEO is worth 300 times what a regular worker makes? I sure don’t.

Kasich stole Obama’s “bottom up” words from his 2008 campaign. That’s gonna work with a Repub base?

The very bottom in income is about 90% of the population. You don’t get a bigger bottom than that.

So who were the winners and losers?
AdLib 13 days ago
Kes – I think they’re just talking about how they will screw America, from the bottom up.
AdLib 13 days ago
I think Trump and Bush were losers tonight.
AdLib 13 days ago
Exactly! LOL! And the GOP has created a huge economic bottom.

Carson is an automatic winner, none of his supporters care what he says, they just like how he says it.

Kes – Of course, he’s an Estab Repub but that ain’t gonna fly with the current GOP base.
AdLib 13 days ago
I think you’re right, AdLib. Earlier on I was really worried because he’s a very formidable candidate in a relatively sane environment. But clearly today’s GOP is anything but that.

Steve Schmidt is hyping Christie as a winner tonight. Huh? What fools these pundits are.
AdLib 13 days ago
Kes – Right, Kasich and Bush don’t have a prayer in this GOP. And neither does Christie.

Trump really embodies what the GOP base craves at the moment. The GOP powers-that-be, not so much.

Yep, I think Trump may settle into 2nd or 3rd but he has a solid base of support Jeb and Kasich will never have.

This had to be a depressing night for anyone other than Carson supporters.

Any thoughts on who the eventual candidate will be AdLib?

Kes – I really don’t know. I could imagine the decision having to go to the convention! That would be amazing and so destructive to the party!!! What do you think?
AdLib 13 days ago
I’m stumped, AdLib. I admit it. I can’t see where this is going to end up. If it’s Carson, I think Hillary will clean his clock.

Carson doesn’t play well outside of the heavily RW religious states, Trump has worn thin on many Repubs but has a loyal base. Rubio is so shallow, hard to see him catching on. Who’s left?

Well, kids, I think I’ll sign off for now and watch an old 1930’s Dracula movie, from when people really knew how to be blood-suckers with class.

Kes – If only it would be Carson! Trump would be great for us too! It sure could be one of them and then, as I’ve hoped, we’ll have that Goldwater type election and Dems could win “hige”!
AdLib 13 days ago
“huge”!

Cool, Kes! Have a great evening!

Or “yuuuuuuuuge!” as Trump says it.

I’m sure it’s very tough on you, Murph.
AdLib 13 days ago
It appears I have arrived late to the debate, had errands to run. What have I missed?
