Detroit Debate Open Thread

Detroit

Now that I mention it, and by “it,” I mean tonight’s debate being in Detroit ahead of the Michigan primary, why do I get the feeling that Mitt Romney coming out against Trump today has something to do with trying to swing Michigan, where his father’s political and business career was based, against Trump?  The problem with that theory is that George Romney’s heyday was an increasingly longer and longer time ago, and it didn’t help Mitt Romney carry the state versus Obama in 2012.  Even in 2008, when Romney first ran, John McCain won the Michigan Republican primary.

I don’t anticipate this debate discussing the real problems that make Detroit Detroity.

Even if this off the record interview is right and it’s all bargaining fodder, we’d still end up with immigration enforcement much stronger than what we have now, or what Rubio, HRC or Bern would permit, and probably better than what Cruz would do unilaterally.

We don’t even need a wall. We need to deport as many of those 40 million wetbacks as possible, and make it hurt enough that they’ll think twice about coming back (when the next president pulls the guards off the wall).

I wish Trump had skipped this one too. These Fox jackasses are cross examining him while lobbing softballs the the Cubans and the other guy. Fox is by far our worst media enemy. I don’t sweat the outlets that wear their socialism on their sleeve, it is always the judas pretending to be an ally who will stab you in the back. Fox is about as “conservative” as Glen Beck.

Trump should have done another veterans deal and had Sessions and Krispy Creme. He could also have rolled Duncan Hunter, Jr. out to the national audience.

He answered that poorly. He must explain that we want the guys who graduate University of Michigan with a 4.0 in computer science, engineering, and math – those guys we do want. But we don’t want the run-of-the-mill code jockey unless and until every American citizen code jockey is employed.

This crap with community college affirmative action anchor baby is putting Trump off his game. Pool boy is coming out worse, but Trump could shit this down and be done with it. You never win a public argument with a complete idiot loser, you just wind up conflating yourself with him.

Why do they need to open the phone? NSA has been sniffing and recording every 1 and 0, so why isn’t FBI asking them for the data?

I’m going to come right out and say I think this was Trump’s worst showing (not just worst debate, but worst anything) ever. Remember, I’m for the guy.

But we had some bad moments tonight. Repeatedly saying you were following Gov. rules when you hired non-Americans isn’t what we want to hear from Trump. Sounds like lawyerly Clintonism.

Saying you have your clothing line made with foreign labor but might be changing that? Not a good moment.

Later: “I gave lots of refunds”. Said several times under fire, it sounded like an admission that the course was a scam. Not a good exchange.

I was against H1-B before I was for them-we need smart people- NOT GOOD.

The continual name-calling when at this debate looking Presidential was the way forward.

Sorry Trump-bro’s, I’m just saying this is how it struck me. Of course Trump was being targeted by, in effect, four people, the two Rickies, Chris Wallace, and Megyn Kelly. It was a coordinated effort to pull him down. I’ll give him credit for standing in there and taking blows, giving back when he could, and not giving up. But there were a lot of new eyes on him tonight, after last Tues., I’ll wager, and this Trump showing had more cringe-inducing moments than I like to think about. Did anyone see it differently?

We’ll see if the Trump charisma keeps the train on the tracks.

Let me tell you about Sen. Inhofe and- probably by extension- the others mentioned in this article.

Inhofe is firmly in the Israel-First camp. He believes that in the Bible, Yahweh gave clear title to Palestine to the Israelites until the End of Times.

He believes that as we (the USA) bless Israel, God will bless us. He’s exactly the kind of “middle-American” politician that has never said “no” to a tribal member.

I believe that little piece of information would go far to help the author understand the peculiar “uselessness” of the Senator and his ilk. Actually, it’s not “uselessness” if it furthers *someone’s* agenda. You just need to identify who the benefitting party is.
