My Thoughts on the Sep 16 Debate

Here are my thoughts about the Republican debate on Sep 16, 2015.

Rand Paul
"I kinda have to laugh when I think.. hmm, kind of a non-sequitur. [Trump] was asked whether  he would be capable and it would be in good hands to be in charge of the nuclear weapons, and all of a sudden there's a side ways attack at me. I think that really goes to the judgement. Do we want someone with that kind of character, that kind of careless language to be negotiating with Putin? Do we want someone like that to be negotiating with Iran?

I think, really, that there is a sophomoric quality that is entertaining about Mr. Trump. But I am worried, I am very concerned about having him in charge of the nuclear weapons, because I think his response, his visceral response to attack people on their appearance, short, tall, fat, ugly. My goodness, that happened in junior high.  Are we not way above that? Would not we all be worried to have someone like that.

Mike Huckabee
Mr T comment "You're a fool" comment was funny in more than one way.

Marco Rubio

Ted Cruz

Ben Carson

Donald Trump
"Not in a Braggadocio" I don't believe it.
"A great life altogether" Not eloquent.

"First of all, Rand Paul shouldn't even be on this stage..." What? He is trying to winnow down the field? Why?

Jeb Bush
"A dedicated reformer" I don't believe it

Scott Walker
"Go big and go bold" I want to believe it. I am skeptical

Carly Fiorina
"Donald Trump is a wonderful entertainer. He's been terrific at that business." (8:57)
"One of the benefits of a Presidential campaign is character, capability, judgement and temperament of every single one of us is revealed, over time and under pressure.  All of us will be revealed over time and under pressure. I look forward to a long race. " (9:27)
"From secretary to CEO" is inspiring.
"A government so big..." my vision.

John Kasich

Chris Christie
