Well, well, well - that was fun!
Last night’s winners: the Republican candidates - with the exception of Jeb!
…who may have reached the point where it would be better for everyone if he were to give serious consideration to going to do some of those “really cool things I could do other than sit around, being miserable.”
Last night’s losers: the JV moderator team
who proved beyond a doubt that Rubio had a point: “You know, the Democrats have the ultimate Super PAC, it’s called the mainstream media.”
Once the beauty contestants discovered they would all get more red meat if they hunted as a pack, things got very interesting. Hard to pick a favorite moment;
Was it Cruz:
"You look at the questions: 'Donald Trump, are you a comic-book villain?,' 'Ben Carson, can you do math?,' 'John Kasich, will you insult two people over here?,' 'Marco Rubio, why don't you resign?,' 'Jeb Bush, why have your numbers fallen?'" Cruz said, imitating the moderators, to raucous applause. "How about talking about the substantive issues people care about?”
“It was the week (Hillary Clinton) got exposed as a liar. But she has her Super PAC helping her out, the American mainstream media.””
“Even in New Jersey that’s considered rude, John (Harwood).”
Is it possible that Republicans are finally figuring out how to deal with a hostile MSM? When John Hargood, unhappy with the direction Christie’s response was heading, started arguing with him, Christie came right out and asked Harwood if HE wanted to answer the question (Harwood declined).
Here’s what I’d like to hear from any of the candidates the next time one of the moderators inserts their own views into their “clarifying” follow-up questions: “Look John, are you running for President? Because if you are then I suppose America would like to hear your opinion on your question, butt if you’re not why don’t you just shut up and let ME answer YOUR question.
Well John, I don’t know if we’re talkin’ to you, butt we sure as heck are talkin’ about you.
