To be fair, not all Freepers were cheerleaders, but only a few seemed to change their opinion, and that seemed more due to peer pressure than anything else.
MotorCityBuck has his favorites:
IMHO Carson & Trump did well.If you want a cheerleader, there's always Helicondelta!
Trump is killing it. This is his best debate by far.Though elsewhere, Freepers were explaining that "Trump is fighting a cold."
Time for everyone else to drop out.
Cicero has converted to Trumpism!
I was not a Trump supporter last time around, because I thought he was working for himself and for the publicity.crusher2013 has neatly divided the debate into people who want America to be imperialist dicks, and all the losers:
This time, I really think he means it. I think he wants to finish his life by serving his country. And he has proven ability to choose competent advisers and aides in his various businesses.
I was listening to the debate and its clear to me that the party is divided into 2 camps.cornfedcowboy, from left field!!
America first vs Internationalists.
Trump, Cruz, Paul and Carson are in the America First group, the rest are not.
Christie did the most to help himself tonight.topspinr has some hot takes that tell me almost nothing about who won:
Paul.........GeekCiexyz doesn't like commentators that disagree with her:
Carly........Her own worse enemy
Carson.......Speak softly but carry a big stick
I’m turning off the after show commentary because Dennis Prager and Medved and group don’t like Trump. Turning off 1250 The Answer now.entropy12 wants Bill Gates to be President, I guess:
Trump has achieved more in real world main street economy, employed more people, signed more checks on the front, donated more to charities, than the following politicians COMBINED.Or maybe Carlos Slim?
(Dole, McCain, Romney, Cruz, Kasich, Rubio, Fiorina, 3 Bushes, 2 Pauls, Christie, Graham, Huckabee, Santorum, Pataki, and many more).
I hope that explains the Trump appeal.
old curmudgeon has a rather idiosyncratic test for who would make the best President - who could he imagine firebombing Dresden?
I started out almost a year ago supporting Cruz.conservative98, back to cheerleading!
But the more I listen to the debates. the more I have come to believe that what we need is a person who has done great things, not a great debater.
That old saying “Talk is cheap” will not leave my mind.
Can you imagine what would have happened to us if these great minds had been running the country during WWII?
Only one person on that stage would have had the guts to drop the bomb on Japan.
Trump won.Simple and repetitive. You know, Presidential!
Made Bush and the others look weak.
Had the best closing and most memorable. Simplest easy to understand and repetitive.
We don’t win anymore. But will start winning and Make America Great Again. It is repeitive but everyone else changes their closing and is forgotten.
