"But I will tell you, I am totally committed to the Republican Party. I feel very honored to be the front runner. And I think I’ll do very well if I’m chosen. If I’m so fortunate to be chosen, I think I’ll do very well.Polls have come out recently saying I would beat Hillary. I will do everything in my power to beat Hillary Clinton, I promise you." Those were the words from Republican Presidential candidate, Donald Trump at last night's debate. Words of passion, real passion. Words from a man that truly wants to be the next President of the United States. Those were not the words coming from a career politician schmoozing the Republican party, those were the words from a man that wishes to win the republican nomination and will be honored if nominated. This is not a man that should be overlooked by the Republican party as he has won the hearts, and minds of the people, the people of the United States Of America.
Not winning the hearts and minds of the people were several republican contenders on stage, most noteably Ben Carson, Carly Fiorina, and Jeb Bush. While Carson seems to be a nice man, politics seems out of his league. Carson began his opening statement with a moment of silence for those that perished in San Bernardino using his little air time to pay his respects. Carson's continuous chatter of medical jib jab leave one to think his heart may not be into being the next President. Carly Fiorina , the lone woman on stage again seemed, cold, bitter and like a mother hen as she scolded both Trump and Bush as they squabbled. With Fiorina's pint sized cross I frankly was confused as to if she was running for office or off to Nun's retreat. Jeb, while always knowledgeable, sadly appeared to be a has been. Although Jeb had many great points, and on many issues performed well, his weak attempts at attacking Trump left him looking pathetic and done. The following exchange between the two was while entertaining also sad if one was a supporter of Bush. "You’re never going to be president of the United States by insulting your way to the presidency.Trump, "well, let’s see. I’m at 42, and you’re at 3. So, so far, I’m doing better." Bush," Doesn’t matter. Doesn’t matter." Trump." So far, I’m doing better. You know, you started off over here, Jeb. You’re moving over further and further. Pretty soon you’re going to be off the end…"
CNN's Republican debate was in deed a debate where some shined more than others. New Jersey Governor Chris Christie did particularly well as he shared his frustrations with the failings of republicans in both the Senate and Congress. Christie made many strong points and most definitely had his finest hour. Marco Rubio as always performed well, but was disappointing on immigration. Ted Cruz a pro at debating was strong but disappointing as well. Cruz wanting more time on a particular issue, interrupted the moderators and refused to back down. Cruz seemed belligerent and pig headed in showing his true colors leaving one to ponder just how he would relate to other world leaders. Rand Paul left me with the same sentiments, while Kasich just seemed to fade in the background. Then again with nine candidates on the stage it's difficult for anyone not to fade , unless of course one is front runner, Donald Trump.
Donald Trump while not the best debater I felt had his best debate thus far. Trump came out on top, as did Ted Cruz. As the security of America is the number one issue in most American's minds, America's safety was often discussed. Quite honestly all of the candidates with the exception of Rand Paul appeared to be quite strong in homeland security. All of the candidates seemed to agree that ISIS need be defeated for our country to feel safe. Trump and Cruz seemed to have stronger views than others. All in all anyone watching with half a brain on function would have to admit that anyone on last night's debate stage would be better than Hillary or any other Democrat as the next President. Republican candidates all have one goal in common, and that is to win the bid for the White House and keep America safe and free from fear. Donald Trump, however is the only candidate that has taken a vow to not only make America safe again, but to make America great again!
