I'm missing it the hilarity. No one wants me to turn to it.

Trumps hyperbolic, nonsensical responses, "You need someone like me to fix the deficit," right after he gets his s*** called out, gets eaten up by the crowd. Smh.

I'm watching it. Keep in mind I'm a Republican so keep the bashing to a minimal. Heh. I'm also a big rubio fan and like what I see so far.

I honestly thought Trump would have pulled out by this point because I did not honestly believe he was serious. Juat assumed he was trolling as usual. Most likely he's just doing this to get publicity and attention for his next big business or showbiz gig. Howevwe i have never tried to understand his crazy and delusional motives.

I'd never bash you for being a republican. I would bash groups of people, like anybody that's behind Trump, which, unfortunately, is far higher than what it should be.

Watching the debate, Rubio is the winner and the only one, right now, who has a shot, VERY MINIMAL shot, to hang with Hiliary.

Ohh no no. I know you wouldn't. Trust me . I was just being facetious. :) People take politics way too serious. It always surprises me how an individual can judge someone based on their political beliefs. I saw so many friendships get ruined on Facebook during the last election. Never seen such stupidity on so grand a scale. Meaning to loose a friendship over politics . life is way too short for that. I did vote for bill when he ran for his second term. I always liked bill, but I do not like Hillary. I have my reasons. :)

As far as the Democratic side I'm pulling for Jim Webb. I live in VA and was impressed with his work as a senator here in my state and also being a USMC brother.

It's so beautiful to hear the Trump detractors on Fox now. He's a clown and he's done. I met him, and I will say, he's actually nice in person. Of course this run was all an act and him feeding his ego but I love seeing him crash like he did tonight.

Trump was entertaining. Thought Bush, Rubio and Walker sounded the best. Paul looked like a sourpuss. Huckabee is crazy. Christie has no chance.

Rubio was the most polished conservative that would attract the base, but Trump absolutely stole the show with his outrageousness.

Republicans hate Obama as much as Democrats hated Bush when he was in office. And Trump's no-holds-barred approach is resonating with the Obama-haters.

I remember the last time a politician fired up Republicans this much - back when Arnold first ran for California Governor. He ended up cowtowing to the Senate Democrats, but he energized people in the same way.

Jay Smooth with a nice call on the first debate last night. If you've never watched any of his videos, check him out. He's a very intelligent guy.

I stopped watching after an hour or so...Trump seemed to dominate and the others seemed to simply dovetail on his comments (prior to and at the debate). Did he crash at the end of the debate?

Back when Trump was an eloquent speaker and applied some common sense to what he's saying rather than blurting out elementary school insults.

Hes saying almost the same thing today that he said back then.

He continued to say nothing and pretty much ignore questions being asked. on Fox they had a focus group where originally there were supporters of Trump but after the debate they were done with him.

Minus "idiot," "losers," and the rest of his insults but he's also answering the questions posed which he didn't rarely did last night. I do agree with some of what he says but most of it is just random speaking points without real possibility of happening, "I'll bring all the jobs back we lost to China."
