Same here. I liked Kasich the most from the GOP debate this time. Yup, Trump's performance has surprised me; he's come a long way: In the first two GOP debates, I couldn't believe the bad performance of Trump, especially knowing that he has advantage of the celebrity that others didn't. However, in this fourth GOP debate, he definitely surprised. My guess is he now feels more comfortable answering questions and has now the experience to also answer back the questioners in his Trumpesque way but with more firmness and diplomacy. I dislike his rhetoric, but for some reason, I cannot make myself dislike him, and this despite, well, as you too know, everything.
Unfortunately, I didn't have a chance to watch the most recent Dem debate. That said, the one I'd watched on CNN some time back, I'd really, really liked Bernie Sanders. He seems genuine, and that's saying a lot, considering the fact that they are all politicos and following Nixon's presidency, the American public has distrusted our politicos for a long time, and I'm no exception. That said, as someone on Fox News said, the Dem primaries is boring because it is like a "coronation" and we all know who is going to be coronated.
. I used to like Hillary, and then somewhere I don't know what happened, but she seems now to personify "cunning," and I don't think cunning is a good thing as it bespeaks of an ability to manipulate even if with more subtlety. I only like that she's cool under pressure, something of a quality that has helped her with the Benghazi controversy and the Committee hearings.
Man, I was hoping that we could have Obamacare repealed, which I don't think will happen if she sits in the Oval Office.
, really think it is going to be Trump vs. Hillary? I am unsure still. Republicans are gunning for him, as well as Democrats. Hugh Hewitt, the conservative radio talk show host that was one of the persons hosting the most recent GOP debate, had said prior to the debate that Trump might not be able to get 1200+ GOP delegates to win the Republican ticket. I don't know, as all of this seems like such a drama unfolding on the GOP stage. Plus, while I know Trumpeters love Trump, will they turn up to vote as I'd read somewhere that the majority of his constitution is not the type to vote? Though, hmm
, that's not saying much as Dems typically on comparison I had heard have the worse history of showing up to vote.
, don't know. Trump vs. Hillary is probably though the lib dream, though it can probably come back to bite back in the heinie. The reason I say this is because I'm seeing a trend, don't know if you see it too. The trend that I'm seeing is that Dems or libs, previously semi-positive or even neutral concerning Muslims, are gradually making a palpable shift towards the same kind of frustrated semi-anti-Islam rhetoric that has in its full-blown loose tongue version won Trump mass popular support from the Repub constitution.
At the risk of sounding like an FB relationship status post, it's complicated. (Or maybe it's simple, and I'm overthinking it and making it complicated.)
