    Bullies pick on the weak, Trump is blasting away at the corrupt power structure.

    I worry about Trumps temperament. If he were to become president, would he start a twitter war with Putin? (probably not, as repugnant as Putin is, I don't see him as being that silly) The Donald still hasn't really outlined what he would do in office other than saying, "I'll be the best darned (fill in the blank) that the country has ever seen"

    He's working on it

    During his speech, Trump noted he has several major detailed policy plans forthcoming. He’s already published his detailed immigration reform plan—the only candidate to do so—and is working on a tax plan, healthcare plan, veterans care, and military plan. On stage, he detailed how if he’s elected president he’d ensure veterans are treated better than illegal aliens—they’re currently not, he said—and how he’d build a military so big that America’s enemies wouldn’t dare pick a fight with this country.

    He's articulated on the Immigration issue

    Late to this discussion but I think Carly Fiorina was the biggest winner. Carson lost ground. Bush talked the conservative issues, but we all know he is not. The other one who made an impression was Christy, he called Trump and Fiorina on their CEO bickering, and kept on saying that Republicans should focus on the middle class more. His opening when he told the cameras to focus on the audience not him because it wasn't about him. He repeated that theme, well played, but he's not my choice. Jindal's comment that if the Republican Party is going to be another liberal party, end it and start a new conservative party was one of the best lines from the first debate.
    For me I don't want to see Bush or Trump for sure. If it is a Clinton vs. Bush, I'm done with both major parties. I left and came back, but if the Republicans nominate Bush and the Democrats run Hillary this nation gets what it deserves, poor leadership, gridlock, and division.

    She's a bit unhinged with war rhetoric.

    As a woman, she is automatically labeled a dove. She needed to over-state it to compete with the big boys.

    She is hawkish no doubt, but there are other GOP presidential candidates who are the same or more, Lindsey Graham for example. Other than defending the Republican leadership in Congress, his only point was I'll defeat ISIS. Carly has some issues I disagree with, but if she keeps performing well, she could put a hurt on Hilary.

    That's even scarier, the Napolian complex on estrogen.

    Wow, that's a pretty offensive and sexist statement. She is no more or less hawkish then any of the men on that stage, she just has to present a plan, where the men simply need to state they support the military.

    You were the one that made the observation. Anyone who feels the need to go "over the top" with war talk is dangerous. I don't want her anywhere near the buttons.
