  • The Republican Candidates Let Donald Trump Win

    New York Mag ^ | 02/10/2016 | Jonathan Chait
    What made this response all the more baffling is that Trump was clearly hoping to pull off just the kind of debate that transpired. He was more subdued, less outlandish, and far, far nicer than he has appeared in any previous debate. He was boring. His opening and closing statements sounded — unusually for him — as though he had practiced them. He appealed to party unity. He sought to rise above his competitors not by belittling them, as usual, but through magnanimity. In reality, Trump is the same uninformed clown he always has been. His response on every question...

    One of the strangest battles of Election 2016 is not Donald Trump vs. Ted Cruz or Hillary Clinton vs. Bernie Sanders, or even Jeb Bush vs. Marco Rubio. The squabble everyone is talking about pits Trump, the mercurial businessman who wants to be president of the United States, and Megyn Kelly, the rising star of Fox News and one of the most fearsome interviewers on the airwaves

    The best feature of Thursday night's Republican presidential debate was the small number of contestants taking part in it. There. I said it. We're no longer subjected to cattle-call debates with 10 candidates squabbling over seconds of airtime. Now it’s only seven, and there are opportunities for more substantial discussions. And as such, the performances are getting sharper, and better. So here are a few observations from the Fox Business debate: THE STANDINGS Here's how they came out: 1. Ted Cruz: Cruz opened the debate knocking the issue of the loan he took out to fund his 2012 Senate campaign...

Mannheim Steamroller, they've got all kinds of Christmas playlists that they put together, Christmas cocktail, which is jazz, country Christmas. I was just reveling. Now, it has to be stuff that I've heard before for me to be able to enjoy, but Christmas music fits the bill.

  • The Fourth debate did NOT draw as many viewers as the third debate; are minds made up?

    Coach is Right ^ | 11/12/15 | Kevin "Coach" Collins
    Maybe people are beginning to make up their mind about who they will support in the Republican primaries. The television viewership ratings tell the story. It may be too late for anyone to catch Donald Trump. Just as after every other debate, even on the Democrat side, the paid “insiders” tell us who won the night and we disagree. But in all but loony toons Glenn Beck’s poll where libertarian Rand Paul beat Donald Trump by a single point, Trump has won with numbers running from solid to blow out. When hundreds of thousands of people vote on these on...

    Biggest loser on merits: Kasich. He’s done. He came across angry, condescending and unprincipled. By the end of the debate he came across as the drunk, obnoxious, uncle everyone wishes hadn’t accepted the invitation to Thanksgiving dinner. Biggest loser politically: Jeb Bush. On the substance, I thought his performance during the first half was the best he’s done. But by the second half he started to fade and grew more incoherent. On several occasions he gave passable answers if you could cut through the word clouds, but then Rubio came in and gave essentially the same answer better, both on...

    This was a great week for those of us who consider the corporate media to be underinformed, partisan, and overly impressed with their own power to shape political affairs. This week CNBCs wretched conduct of the Republican debate hurt the pocketbook of their parent company, Comcast, and gave the entire media a long-deserved black eye while upping the audiences regard for intended victims. If Watergate was the high water mark of the public esteem of journalists, the debate was its Waterloo. Like me, you have to admit that you never expected to hear Carl Bernstein admit the right was correct...

    I dedicate the lead of this column to thanking CNBC for displaying its rank liberal bias in last night's GOP presidential debate for all the world to see. In relative terms, "all the world" is not that far off if you consider last night's audience size compared with the network's usually paltry ratings. The more people who saw this charade from the network's alleged moderators the better for America. My first reaction as this spectacle unfolded was muted outrage, shaking my head that this atrophied arm of the mainstream liberal media would show its colors so overtly, without any pretense...

    Will tonight’s GOP presidential campaign debate in Colorado be more about staging political theatre, catchy soundbites, and media analysts focused on who has the “gotcha” moment? Or will this debate actually produce a substantive discussion of economic and regulatory policies that could actually help our nation’s economy grow? Sadly the ramp up discussion to this next GOP debate has been more about who can trump Trump than a discussion of who has the best ideas to reviving a lagging U.S. economy or which candidate has the best plan for job creation. Tonight’s debate is supposed to focus on improving the...
  • Post Debate Twitter Follower Growth - Presidential Candidates (from 9/17 to 9/20)

    In the three days since the debates on Thursday night, we saw major jumps in Twitter followers among some of the candidates that did well. The big surprise here is Carly Fiorina, who added 63,404 followers to leapfrog ahead of Ben Carson, who has been running number 2 in Twitter growth all summer long. Even more surprising, the growth in Donald Trump's followers is starting to slow, even though he remains at number one and it well out in front in terms of MTD (month to date) follower growth since September 1. For comparison, Trump added over 600,000 followers in...

It  was also quite astounding in that only hours after the debate the video was up and running on YouTube. So watch and enjoy.

    Time Magazine ^ | August 7, 2015 | Sam Frizell
    In Hillary Clinton’s humid campaign headquarters in Brooklyn, a few dozen campaign staffers gathered after hours to watch the Republican debate. As they readied their rapid response, they tossed around synonyms for their views of their potential Republican opponents. “Backward looking.” “Out of touch.” “Out of date.” Maybe just “Lord have mercy.” [Snip] Clinton didn’t join in. Instead, she held court at a Hollywood fundraiser with Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, Usher, Jessica Alba and others. But she’s not leaving the criticism to her staffers, either. In Denver on Tuesday, she seized on the theme by arguing that a Republican forum...

    Okay, I just saw the list of the GOP presidential candidates. The top 10 at the main debate and the 7 who have to be at the "kiddie table." One unnoticed as yet aspect of this format is that one or more of the Top 10 candidates could be demoted in future polls to the "kiddie table." A very public humiliation. Okay, so who do you think will be the FIRST Top 10 candidate to exit the main debate in the future and be assigned to the "kiddie table?"

    John King has joined Juan Williams as Newt Gingrich road kill. They have both been taught a harsh lesson: Newt Gingrich will not play the “gotcha question” game and he will turn such questions into smack downs of those who insist upon asking them. In just over 2 minutes Gingrich took King’s opening question about the charges being made by his former wife and flattened the pride of CNN to the delight of hundreds in a South Carolina auditorium and millions across the country. Newt’s smack down had us banging our fists and saying “Finally! Finally somebody is punching back!”...

    Sitting through the Republican debate on Saturday night with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos was just painful, from beginning to end. Some of it was just political Ambien. But when it was finally over, there was just one question. Who in the GOP in his/her right mind invites a historically shameless Democratic spin controller like Stephanopoulos to “moderate” a primary debate like this – ever? The only thing that can be said in defense of that horrible decision was turning to NBC the next morning and seeing “moderator” David Gregory be even more slanted in his questioning. ABC slanted the ideological questions...

    If life were fair, Rick Santorum and Michelle Bachmann would be doing much better than they are. I understand the reluctance to back Bachmann. I stopped backing her because she claimed, among other things, that God was sending recent natural disasters, killing people all around the world as a warning. Santorum, to my knowledge, hasn’t made any such self destructive statements and believes with a passion what he says. He just doesn’t seem to project any passion himself. And that’s a shame. He would probably do well and is undeniably for a strong America. Gingrich as usual was the smartest...
