Debate Thread: Let's Whip Them Out And Measure

Pre-Game Hype: Did Romney give his largely ineffectual speech for a hidden purpose?

Theory: He gave the speech to increase the drama and viewer interest in tonight's debate, because either he expects that tonight's debate will be another bad performance from Trump, mixed with lots of attacks on him, or he hopes that, at least?

Bear in mind, this is the eleventh debate. The last one, the tenth, was the most telling debate, and most dramatic, but I have to imagine it wasn't widely watched.

Maybe Romney was attempting to boost ratings for a second tag-team effort on Trump.

Okay, that's just idle speculation, but what do you want from me.

By the way: If Obama's such a great president, why are both political parties in the midst of civil wars?

Strife and stress don't happen during good times. During good times, parties dutifully nominate Continuity Candidates to keep the good times rolling.

Yet we're not having that kind of primary on either side. Both parties seem to be in apocalyptic frames of mind.

That shouldn't happen under a successful presidency. Should it?

And that is exactly why he must be President. He'd walk into the supreme court while it is hearing a case, bitchslap John Roberts, spit in his face, then go to Congress and give McConnell a wedgie and call him turle faced shit. There may be negative consequences for us, but he will act out our deepest fantasies. He doesn't give a shit about concerns like "you can't do THAT! We've always done it THIS way!" Maybe not, be he is the one most likely to.

Cato the Rebel Without a Party


Because trump and cruz represent an existential threat to the establishment's power. "We the People" was well on its way to being dead. It's a risk worth taking for them--their "lesser of two evils." Take away the establishment and they lose the political life track and K-Street safety net.

357 IMO Rubio should drop out, those votes will likely MOSTLY go to Cruz and allow him to beat Trump.

Cruz is NOT an establishment candidate, if Rubio gets 'his' wish (Cruz dropping out) what he seems to think will happen won't (I think he believes that all of Cruz voters will switch to Rubio, I disagree, MOST of those Cruz voters will switch to the other anti-establishment candidate and that will be it Trump will walk away with it).

Either way the GOPe is going to lose, its just down to them choosing the form of the destroyer Cruz or Trump).

I'm a cruz guy myself. But I do believe Donald, for all his warts, is actually not a fraud. I believe he does care for America as a nation and not just as another world market. And maybe of the two he's the only one that could fight off the shitstorm after he is elected. Living in Illinois I have the luxury of voting my conscience in April--if Cruz is still in the race. Then supporting Trump.

the UN, threatening to bury us, lived through the Cuban Missile Crisis,
and practiced hiding under my desk for protection from Soviet nucs in
the 6th grade. And grew up being taught, and believing, that ANY form of
Marxism - call it communism, socialism, democratic socialism, i.e.
totalitarianism - is totally opposed to our founding principles of
individual freedom, liberty and responsibility. Therefore poses a direct
threat to those principles. So, tell me, am I the only one who is just a
little concerned about how openly the Democrats are now embracing
communism as their main Party platform?

626 Bandersnatch regarding common core: "By dangling federal funds in front of the states in the midst of a trying recession, the federal government has circumvented the law and bound over 80% of the nation to following the same academic standards, using standardized assessments funded and reviewed by the Department of Education, and building the most expansive data systems in American history."

709 On Common Core, dug up this:

There was a rush by states to adopt Common Core by August 2010 because establishing standards won them points in the competition for a share of the billions in Race to the Top grants.

Tom McCarthy, a spokesman for Pope, acknowledged "there really wasn't a credible alternative to Common Core" at the time.

So, the federal government didn't force Common Core on the states, but it did create incentives for states to adopt the standards.



The feds didn't mandate it, but they gave a big carrot to states to use it. The fact that it is used across the nation despite being widely hated shows that the feds succeeded.

Look at the election map- it's not particularly friendly to Cruz. Rubio dropping out would make it more likely that Trump wins, not less.

734 A side thought on Common Core - it takes a decade for a student to go through a curriculum, and it would take at least twice that to figure out if it improved or hurt student learning.

1052 That's not how it works. 1,237 delegates to win. If you come up short then there's a brokered convention. If Trump don't like it he can go 3rd party. as simple as that.
Posted by: Arson Wells at March 03, 2016 09:58 PM (UnJ7w)


"shenaningans".

Do you know what that word means? The GOPe appealing to the rules while doing things to violate the spirit of fairness that underlies the rules would be shenanigans.

I don't care if the GOPe does that, by the way, because I'm convinced Trump and his supporters are a symptom of an underlying wave.

I'm just pointing out that there will be dire consequences if the GOPe immolates itself over Trump. Because from the above view, Trump is the Easy Option.

convention shenanigans.

That is bullshit Cato... if Trump doesn't have the delegates then he doesn't have the support of the majority. If he can't follow the rules, he shouldn't have thrown his hat in the ring.

If they put up HALF of this effort at destroying Obama or Hillary, and we wouldn't have these problems.

The GOP wrote the rules, made 'em all sign statements that they'd support the eventual candidate, no matter who he (or she, but that ship done sailed) is. They don't get to shift into panic mode when their guy isn't the candidate the people choose.

So, I incubated some chicken eggs and they hatched Sunday and Monday.
Two of the chicks were acting a bit lethargic and it winds up they have
"pasty butt", aka can't poop. So, I've been "helping" and I hope they
make it. Digging poop out of a chickens butt sounds better than this

Look, trump gets a lot of grief about his previous statements because he says a lot of things that aren't true. And I don't mean like the way a politician says things that aren't true. I mean not-even-close stuff, just making shit up as he goes type of completely unthought-out false claims.

1384 So saying this as a Cruz supporter.

The more that anti-Trump people attack other people (not just people running) the more I start thinking exactly the opposite of what they're telling me to think.

Trump supporters turn me off when they do the same, but there seem to be a lot more of the anti-Trump people going ballistic on anyone they perceive as a Trump supporter (even if they are a Cruz or Rubio person).

This is costing you people (you know who you are) points and moving others farther and farther from 'your' goal of getting people to vote other than Trump.

I'm going anti-establishment as I have completely had it with the gop establishment, originally I was 'for' (in order 1) Cruz 2) Carson 3) Fiorina 4) Trump) and WILL vote for one of those. I'm completely burned out on getting smoke blown up my ass repeatedly by the establishment GOP they don't negotiate they don't compromise and they are destroying all GOP credibility. I say enough.

Trump is entirely stream-of-consciousness when it comes to debating style.

Drudge caters to the Trump Fanboy demographic; if Trump hadn't even showed up tonight, Drudge's poll would have him at 80% or better.
Ron Paul always won Drudge's polls, too. And we all remember President Paul's administration, don't we?

That's a good point. No one ever bothers to ask the follow up question of what Donald was buying with his donations. He fully admits he was "making deals and buying influence." So what was he buying from Hillary, Reid and Schumer?

1657 Cruz needs to stop dodging the Roberts thing.

Simple answer: "Roberts had a long career of conservative principles. That changed on his decisions on Obamacare. I, like many Americans am disappointed in his decision. The solution is repealing Obamacare"

By itself it your defense seems reasonable until it's followed by
the spin that one reason to vote for Trump is he is not beholden to no
one and doesn't care what politician he may offend.

Most "donors" are more like extortion victims. Trump is fighting back, and that is pissing off the extortionists. He needs to explain this better.

True, but in this case the Party is actively working to undermine the leader. Candidates doing that is one thing, the Party doing it is something very different.

The Party also is working to undermine the second place guy and would love to have the second place guy help them defeat the leader and install a RINO.

The second place guy is far removed from a RINO.

1702 A couple of points. The reason they did slides with Trump - they had done that with Cruz and Rubio at the debate Trump skipped. So now it's Trump's turn.

The reason they are ganging up on Trump - he's the front runner. But when Trump loses his temper and reacts he does himself no favors. Trump is asked for details and can't do it.

I think Cruz won...

1705 To be fair to Obama he doesn't hold all the blame here, go back forty years, with the Shrub, Bubba, Daddy Bush and Bobo's co-star and they are all complicit in taking big stinking dumps on the middle class.

The American people just happen to have enough on his watch. I guess bad luck on perpetuating the oligarchy state for him. Anyway, so we got a couple of choices.

Trump seems to see everything as a nail and he a hammer. (Insert Trump and daughter joke here).

Cruz fancies himself as some modern day Templar Knight, eh, I don't like religious zealots and I like phony religious zealots even more.

Rubio, good God, if this was a HS student council election I'd vote for him for Pres just so he'd have something to do and stop trying to hang at our lunch table.

Kasich, does seem like the only adult in the room at times but when the mob wants to burn Rome down, camouflaging yourself as a dead tree stump on the debate stage ain't going to get you elected.

Swinging to the left we got...

Hillary. I'm a centrist lefty and I hate her. I can't even think of something funny to say about her. She pretty much represents the status quo more so than any one else.

Bernie. A bunch of policy ideas that'll never see the light of day. To his credit though the guy has passion and comes across as honest. But wrong decade for him, 1968 would of served him better.

So there it is, the worst collection of candidates this country has ever been offered.
