Here is my summary of the Republican debate.
A bigger and more aggressive military. Basically perpetual war.
No Iran deal.
Taxes cut for the rich.
No rebuilding of nation's infrastructure.
Climate change will continue.
Cuts in Social Security and Medicare.
Right-wing Supreme Court appointments.
No increase in the minimum wage.
Carson's intelligence and ability to learn are beginning to show. No chance.
Fiorina was strong but extreme.
Kasich was the most moderate but probably is toast.
Bush is a wimp and is toast.
Walker is a creep and is toast.
Huckabee is silly and is toast.
Christie is a creep but he did OK.
Paul is toast.
Rubio is very bad but still in the race.
Trump did better than the commentators think he did. He did what he needed to do. He wasn't as offensive. He's still in the lead.
Cruz is a creep and is toast.
