Fiorina was outstanding and she smacked Trump all around the entire evening. What is especially d@mm!Ng is the fact that the last 37 minutes of the debate, when substance worthy questions were being asked, Trump was completely silent.

Ted Cruz is a worldwide debate champion and he proved it despite CNNs attempt to silence him. He was right on the issues and masterfully refuted his opponents. Body language experts said he expressed perfect body language cues demonstrating strength, confidence, and sincerity. Linguistic analyses said Ted Cruz used the most advanced, complex rhetoric in the debate surpassing all others.

GeoLaureate8 says2015-09-25T00:28:53.8156171Z
Imabench, you posted an actual troll comment about Scott Walker, I posted a serious analysis of who I thought was the winner of the debate.
Berend says2015-09-25T04:56:29.1598495Z
What qualifies as a "debate champion"? The only one I can think of is Hitchens as one of them. Cruz is no champion. If you can lie on stage and it's noticeable, your rhetoric should be looked at and reevaluated. He spewed quite a bit of lies. The only one who I saw coming out as powerful was Carly. She didn't need her "body language". She needed to use her words, say things that were grounded in reality. As for Trump.... Well, his red face said it all.
Berend says2015-09-25T04:57:39.4080004Z
Also, Geo, Imabench's comment on Walker is true. He lost based on just about every statistic. And that was what he was going on about.
GeoLaureate8 says2015-09-26T00:29:25.8701093Z
Berend, don't be retarded. What makes someone a debate champion? Maybe be a fvcking debate champion idiot. You said Carly didn't need body language, she used words. Did you ignore the fact that I said Cruz was top in both rhetoric and body language? Linguistic analysts said Ted Cruz was #1 and Carly Fiorina was #6! "Cruz is advanced... The most complex rhetoric came from Senator Ted Cruz [in the CNN debate]." http://www.Politico.Com/agenda/story/2015/09/debate-data-reveals-its-still-the-trump-show-000247 "When he was at Princeton, Mr Cruz was an award-winning debater. In 1992 he won both the US National Debating Championship and the North American Debating Championship. In 1995 he was a semifinalist in the World Universities Debating Championship." http://www.Bbc.Com/news/world-us-canada-32023159
GeoLaureate8 says2015-09-26T00:39:37.6583876Z
Ted Cruz didn't lie, in fact Politifact had to fact check itself and correct their false rating of Ted Cruz. Carly Fiorina is the one who was spewing nonsense but your gullible brain fell for it. She said she would send a few thousand troops to Germany. We already have 40,000 troops in Germany. She said she would send our Navy to the S. China sea. We already did that. She wants increase our battalions on the sixth fleet. It's already massive. She said she will give Putin the silent treatment. Wow so smart what a brilliant idea! I thought you said she uses her words?
Berend says2015-09-26T02:57:47.0816167Z
He has lied. I'm not going based on "politifact" to get my answers, I go by what they have said and what is b.S. Or not. Nothing in your post is worth reading is all you have is assumptions and ad hominems about me. And no, I know what you said about ted, but that wasn't the case in the CNN debate. I don't care about his history, I only care about what he presented that night. Nothing else. Just one of his lies was on the Nuclear Deal and the people involved. He has lied on the nuke deal, the abortion issue, Planned Parenthood. No, he had lied and it's sickening to talk as if he was all truth and had the best rhetoric. Something, by the way, is going to be subjective. As for body language. I don't care about that. Is Carly lie and go on about B.S.? Of course, and no one between you and I have argued otherwise. All I said was she came in powerful. She basically cut Trump's balls. I never said she came in telling the truth and should therefor be President. I wouldn't vote for her if I was paid all of Trumps money. I did say she said things grounded in reality, and she did. Some of the things she said were true and used with stark force that it gave, and was the only one, to give Trump a run for his money. But then again, the people funding Ted are also funding her to take down Hillery. Also, Politifact calls out Cruz's B.S. And lies, and they were not "all corrected" later on.

I should add, before you jump to it, I say I don't use Politifact for answer, but I will to send to people like to for rhetoric and sources, but not for myself when viewing the debates.
