Live notes from the Republican Debate
What follows is “mostly” unedited notes I took while watching tonight’s Republican debate. Some of the lines were taken from a Facebook group chat with two friends and others went straight into the blog. With that said, here we go:
What’s with the brit on the panel? Lame.
Oh my god does the other male moderator talk this slow the whole time
Carson always looks stoned. Glassy half closed eyes.
Trump Carson and Rubio: No to raising miminum wage – not going to get many votes that way …
Rubio: Welders make more money than philosophers? Oh my.
Jeb and Kashich fighting it out. Jeb looks so dweaby and weak
Jeb: 4% growth i find that highly unlikely sorry buddy. Repeal every rule of Obama? Not. Ok I’ll give him when heh went after Hillary he sounded much better, even though i disagree with him
Fiorina: Man she is ugly. Oh here we go with the ‘woman i met the other day story” – do they make these people up? just answer the question woman!! she’s got a list of 5 things. let’s see if that’s all she talks about all night.
Rand: blah blah why do i feel like he talks and i just hear wind? snore.
Carson rambling about West Point and Hillary and lying. I can’t stand him.
Trump and the Wall … the only good wall is the album by Pink Floyd. A wall will never work, and is not what this country is about.
Kashich: Why is he on this stage again? Oh wait, is he saying we can’t deport Mexicans?? wow. i’m shocked. he’s into letting them stay. maybe i need to pay attention to him. Trump rambling about Ike moving 1.5 million people out … not the 11 million Trump is proposing.
Jeb: Thanks trump for letting him speak at the debate. humor might be good for him. he’s also against sending 11 million people home and breaking up families.
Rubio with a good candy crush vs. telephone comment. might be the first positive thing i’ve ever said about him.
hate the way cruz pauses and stares into the camera. “lawyers and bankers were crossing the rio grande”???
carly: she’s not as fiery as she was at the first debate. tends to yell at the end of each point to fake being fiery. it’s not working….. “secret sauce of america”… yeah that’s not working either.
Cruz: really? who cares if there are more words in teh tax code than the bible? awww come on they ask cruz about his tax plan he says look at his website??? that is fucking LAME = nice female moderator said he hasn’t said how he’d pay for it.
Jeb! – the lil brother that couldn’t … poor guy…..
rubio never sounds like he’s really answering a question, he always sounds like he’s giving a prepared speech.
oooh i like rand attacking rubio’s tax plan calling him out as not conservative. sweet stuff. rand making sense here on the military. scary for me.
damn trump just got killed with “china not part of this deal” referring to TPP !!!
all taxes and war … small touch on minimum wage. not really much talk of police brutality, education, welfare programs, black lives matter, etc….
Carly wouldn’t talk to Putin??? is she crazy? she says she’d put troops everywhere – but not to start a war. wow. she’s bad.
rubio just called Putin a gangster … great international relations.
when carson talks about the banks i feel like he has not clue … he talks pure BS. yeah, after the first 30 seconds he started talking about the poor and hillary clinton. he does have no clue.
kasich talking like a liberal – too much greed in the banks !!
cruz the only one who actually answered that he would Not break up the big banks. oh here we go some woman he met, aftican american, blah blah blah … whatever! the Obama IRS ???? what the heck is that. OH snap he said he’d let Band of America fail if it was on the brnk …. nice. ah he brought up basically going back to a gold standard.
kasich is really trying hard here to interject on every point but i’m not sure it’s really working … he’s going nowhere.
cruz and kasich going head to head …. loving that. oh no kasich just got boooeed!!!!
oh here comes carly … pretending she was a great executive and now talking socialism … “this is how socialism starts ladies and gentlemen” … she’s so lame tonight.
rubio preaching yet again … so scripted, boring, and predictable. has nothing to do with answering the question on how they would do a better job than hillary with her long resume.
damn! recording cut out probably missed the last 2 or 3 minutes ….
