    Lightbulb The Second Republican Debate...

    Did you watch it, and who do you think stood out as a potential nominee?

    Great debate. Lots of interaction. I think that Carly Firona made tremendous move to become a potential. However, I like all the candidates, except Trump. He doesn't know what he is doing and has no business in the White House.
    As far as policy, I disagree with most of them on some issues. I think that Hucklebee, Jindal, Paul, and Graham are out and might as well go back home.
    The others have presidential abilities and could be a President.

    *I wish Trump would just go away, but he is entertaining, and I agree with building that wall

    *Dr. Carson lost points (in my book) when he went all soft on war and defense

    *Fiorina will make a great V.P. (hope she gets the nod)

    *Rubio was impressive this time, but he still seems somewhat "not-ready-for-prime time"

    *Cruz just comes across as creepy to me

    *I like Christie's blunt and direct style, but he's just not popular with base Conservatives

    *Bush was a bit more "energetic," and Hubby thinks when it's all said and done, he'll be the GOP nominee

    War mongering is alive and well. Carly is especially anxious to get some of that, I think to over compensate for the notion that women are weak. A total idiot along with some others who rattled off lists of "enemies" like China and Russia, what are they thinking?

    Trump seemed more pragmatic about things, mentioned the world would be "friendlier" with him at the helm.

    But, yeah, it's likely all theatre, Bush and Hillary will be the false choices.

    I was happy to hear that Dr. Ben Carson was open to an immediate increase in the minimum wage and to the indexing of the wage to inflation, so that the wage will automatically rise with the cost of living.

    When it comes to politics, Trump don't have a clue. The man is an egomaniac.

    Mr. Trump has the personality of a middle-school bully.

    Yes, he's independently wealthy so he's not beholden to the billionaires who have taken over American politics, but in my mind, he's still a repulsive individual, a person I wouldn't buy a used car from and a person I'd never want to share a meal with.
