Republican debate

Tonight’s debate will be nasty; here are five reasons why

Leon H. Wolf, RedState

In short, they are: 1. The gloves have come off between Cruz and Trump. 2. Less candidates on stage. 3. Chris Christie DGAF. 4. FoxBusiness knows what they are doing. 5. Jeb Bush needs to show something to his donors. At the end of the day, if you enjoy bare-knuckled political brawls, tonight’s debate promises to be a treat. Grab your popcorn and get ready to enjoy it.

Fox Wins, Everyone Else Loses

Karin McQuillan, American Thinker

“The debate was a hodgepodge of disjointed gotcha questions tailored to each candidate.  This gave the newscasters total control in shaping the debate, and viewers less useful information.”
