Republican Debate – who fared well?

Denver, CO, October 28, 2015 |
Asked what their shortcomings were – except Trump, no one addressed the question. There should be a rating system in the future on the screen, who answered the questions and who did not and the audience should be able to vote for them.  Some of them sounded like sleazy salesmen (Salesmanship is a noble profession, because of them a lot of things have happened in the world – here I mean sleazy ones who would say anything to get the sale) eager to sell themselves, as if they don’t have stains, as if the public did not know it. 

With ten candidates on the stage, no one really made a substantial impact. Everyone had dirty laundry, but they all made it sound like great experience. But facts don’t matter to our Republican friends.   I have no favorites at this time but I thought I would rank them based on short expressions they made. You may have a different perspective.

This ranking is my perspective strictly based on answering the question.

  1. Chris Christie – He seems to have a clear idea of what he is talking about
  2. Donald Trump – It’s me, me and me, but yet he made his points
  3. Marco Rubio – His come backs were great
  4. Ben Carson – He may have the medical deals come to haunt him
  5. Carly Fiorina – Good move up for her
  6. John Kasich – He has a good record, Rick Perry had the best record though
  7. Rand Paul – disappointed with his performance, I have more in common with him
  8. Ted Cruz – Not a team player
  9. Jeb Bush – failed miserably
  10. Mike Huckabee – He is the hanging chad. 

The first four should continue and the others need to get out of the race.  Each candidate needs to have the time to respond, so we the public and assess them roundly.
