The debate is on in 30 minutes!

Any predictions? Who will get Trumped? How many times will Bush cry? How long will it take until Christie brings up 9/11? Will Rand Paul storm the stage and demand his rightful place at the podium? Will any candidate give an answer that actually includes any substance?
DDO Vice President

I do believe Jeb is going to take another set of heavy braudsides from Trump, Chriatie will just spout out hows he's going to be secomd to God, and well...Paul is going to do jack, because he's a noob, and I just saw him sipping bourbon on another show. I will end with Trump and Cruz gaining even more a lead in polls, and the rest further sinking into the political abyss.

lol they're literally answering the questions they want to answer, regardless of what's posed to them.... Rubio's slight against Clinton was just completely random

Looks like the moderators are trying to set it up with a birther question but Cruz threw it right back in their face

Cruz is a rhetorical genius,.... I think Trump just lost this argument.

They're not particularly dynamic thinkers. They just have a list of talking points they're set on discussing. Pretty common among politicians really.

Rubio, Cruz, and Trump are definitely dynamic thinkers. The rest aren't

lol for a moment I forgot Carson was even in that room.... Jeb, Kasich, and Christie have gotten more exposure than he, despite having lower numbers.

Somebody explain to me why he's still running for president

Trump is quick on his feet and handles insults well, but he's not dynamic in any substantial sense. He actually has very few ideas, and repeats them almost irrespective of the context. So yes, he's dynamic in the sense that he's rhetorically nimble, and that allows him to keep the discussion where he wants it, but at the end of the day I find him to be a very vacuous thinker who has a hard time deviating from his rehearsed shtick.

lol, this is probably true. I'd like to know how he even got onto the political scene in the first place. How does a random doctor even get this far?

Kasich is the least dynamic of all of them lol.... literally, all of his responses have this neat, clearly rehearsed, optimistic cadence, and he can't end or even modify his response until he gets to it, even when he's run out of time.
