You are full of crap! Fred is the only one slapping chrissy and he just destroyed chrissy’s Alternative Minimum Tax 100 Billion Dollar Boondoggle. His answer was PERFECT and delivered perfecly! He explained CONSERVATIVE ECONOMICS as well as Reagan did. He is the only man that understands TAX CUTS ALWAYS WORK.

OK, vote for the guy who won’t win, while I vote for the one who will.

Now if millions of others do as you have I’ll look around more.

Fred is definitely holding his own. He’s meeting or exceeding expectations so far.

Hunter is a protectionist. He is sounding the same theme Clinton did in 1992 about China. The reality is something far different. The US has a tremendous investment in China and vice-versa. China sends 21% of its exports to the US. Is Hunter saying that we should reduce those exports? What happens to China’s economy and ours? And the global economy?

You always refer to a politician using the last or highest rank they acheive.

Fred’s great on taxes now. He’s getting more comfortable.

Heh ... "When the Democrats target the rich, if you're in the middle class, you'd better run to the other side of the house."

Hopefully he's warming up.

>> Why is the moderator calling Thompson ‘Senator’...
..He’s not a senator anymore????

For the same reason the Reagan funeral was for “President Ronald Reagan” ... once you gain the title, you don’t lose it when you leave office.
