Okay, here goes.
ABC effed up the introductions big time – almost forgot Ben Carson – calling the names in the wrong order. And then totally forgot John Kasich. The candidates were confused.
Trump says he has the temperament because he built a corporation. He says he brought up “the problem with Muslims.” And …. Brings up his opposition to the Iraq War.
Cruz dodged the question about his comment about Trump’s temperament to attack Obama, Clinton, and Sanders. Asked again he said, “the voters will judge our temperament.”
Trump points out that Cruz didn’t answer the question. “We’re going to win with Trump.”
The Cruz flier re Carson comes up. Carson says he won’t attack Cruz, but attacks his staff. Carson brings up his volunteers, including the one who died. Cruz apologizes and says it was in the news. Doesn’t explain why they made it look like a government document or why they felt the need to report “the news.”
Carson calls Cruz a liar. Then says he’s not.
Rubio doesn’t like the comparison with Obama. Says Obama knows what he’s doing. He’s deliberately ruining America.
Christie attacks Rubio head on. “You have not made a decision for which you’ve been held accountable.” “I like Marc Rubio.” He’s smart, but it would be a mistake.
Rubio accuses Christie of ruining NJ’s credit rating.
Christie – accuses Rubio of “a drive by shot” at the beginning then a canned speech for 25 seconds. Christie is hot! Lots of democrats rooting for Christie, because Rubio is fucking slick! Christie cuts him off again, “There it is, the memorized speech.”
I think Christie is drawing blood.
More below the fold.
