Sorry, but I was critical of John Kerry in 2004 when he routinely said, "My plan is on my website," and I hold the Republicans to the same standard. If their plans are so great and well thought out, they should be able to give a succinct basic summation of those points. In reality, they have no plans beyond, "Repeal Obamacare."

Completely unhinged. Meltdown. Temper-tantrums. Needs extensive anger management counseling. Out of control.

This is a description of one of the candidates at last night's debate. Any guesses as to which candidate this describes?

I know! I know! The one who got an even deeper shade of orange while he was shouting and carrying on like a 7-year-old in need of a time-out.

I feel bad for the cleaning staff having to wipe up the bio-waste left behind after these children leave the stage

Kasich was one of the sanest voices. "This is a joke". The only winners of that debate were Jeb and Hillary and Bernie. It was like a reality television show.

I agree with the OP. Of all candidates on both sides, I'm starting to think Bernie is the only one who really cares about America. (for the longest time, I couldn't take him as a serious candidate).

On the stage last night, I don't really like any of them, but if I had to vote for one, I felt that Jeb (holding my nose) and Kasich are the only ones that have the temperment to be POTUS. I think Carson is a respectable guy, but IMO he is absolutely clueless on most issues, and I am 100% in disagreement with him on most issues that he does have a clue on. I don't agree with him, but I can see he's probably a genuine guy and a decent person who's proposing what he thinks is right. I just happen to disagree.

I'm really having a hard time envisioning what our country will look like on Jan 21, 2017.
I agree; that comment was despicable.

Cruz and Rubio sounded like they belonged in a tent revival. Trump sounded like a liberal on 9/11 and the Iraq War - WHICH I agree with but ain't gonna win him any love from the righties.

Obviously you are a progressive or maybe socialist is a better word. Isn't it nice we live in a country that believes in freedom of speech. Thinking Sanders cares about our country is good, but the bad thing socialism doesn't work. Look at the industrial counties that have tried it. the col is higher than here and they still have poverty just like we do. I will say, liking Carson indicates maybe you are not a progressive, but are being taken in by the "nice guy" Sanders.

BTW your next post you say things like "they all want to go to war" and they think it is all ghetto peoples own fault they live that way or they want to raise taxes on everyone? I guess you saw a different debate than I did.

My two key takeaways:

1) They all called each other liars. True and should make for some great ad clips. Looking forward to more of the same in the Presidential debates.

2) Trump reminded everyone that 9/11 happened on the Bush watch. Hmmmm ...

Anyway, very entertaining and actually quite revealing. Keep it up. Politicians should be shown as there empty-headed Puppets that they are.

Which candidate was stupid enough to drag his mommy and brother into the campaign?
