Oh great, instead of actually discussing the issues the debate devloved into a Trump centered fight fest.

I guess Trump is doing "well" right now. That being an incendiary fck constitutes "well" is a big problem, but that notwithstanding, Walker just got his ars handed to him.

Really? I actually thought Walker held his own.

Trump is so FOS I dont even understand. He's insulted 3? 4? of the other candidates so far?

Canidates, please stop talking about how the system is broken, and tell us how you are going to fix it instead.

Really? I actually thought Walker held his own.

He fought back toward the end, but he dropped two crucial points by Trump: Walker's state is losing money rapidly, and his numbers in Iowa tanked. The talking points of "I balanced the budget every year!" can only go so far.

Exactly. To be fair to him -- which I don't like doing -- Tapper began with the debate with, "Carly Fiorina, you said this about Trump. Would you trust him with the nuclear codes?" Fox did the same thing: actively looking for fights. They pulled the same thing with Bush, and I guess now with Christie/Carson.

Carson is doing pretty damn well: sitting back and letting these dipsh1ts, all of whom are trying to be more aggressive in going after the non-fluke of Trump, kill each other, only to follow up with the whole, "Look at me! I'm just the older, more sage neurosurgeon. I'm not into this petty political sh1t."

I mean, sh1t, have they even given Kasich/Rubio/Cruz/Huckabee a question? I'm probably missing people. They are *only* asking Trump.

I agree, CNN made the beginning of the debate a Trump fight rather than an opening statement with the actual issues, which is dissapointing.

Here's my question to the candidates:

The U.S. Federal Reserve today begun the first day of its two-day policy meeting, and some economists and analysts believe it might raise interest rates for the first time in 9 years. Where do you stand on this decision, and what policy measures would you take, if any, to ameliorate any negative ramifications emanating from this move?

I'm new to the political process, I guess I should just accept this type of stuff as reality sooner rather than later.

That might prove to be a self-fulfilling prophecy, but unfortunately it probably *is* normal.
