How About That GOP Debate?
Hillary bashers beware!
The GOP and their field of 17 were out in full force Thursday evening, serving up one liners & seeking memorable soundbites in hopes of becoming the 2016 Republican Presidential candidate. While there weren't any contenders who necessarily "bombed" under the spotlight, there were a couple who stood out from the pack, while current front runner Donald Trump looked quite out of place and less than impressive in an arena that clearly did not play well to his brash and "off the cuff" demeanor.
Those making good impressions included Marco Rubio, Mike Huckabee, Ted Cruz, Chris Christie & Dr. Ben Carson. But perhaps the biggest surprise of debate day occurred earlier in the evening when the "bottom 7" had their debate and relative unknown Carly Fiorina absolutely blew the pack away, making perhaps the best impression of all 17 candidates. Her poise, fluidity, knowledge and succinct and meaningful responses were literally jaw dropping, and it should be no surprise if we see her numbers go up as a result of her incredibly strong showing.
Question now is, how will the polls line up as many believe that "The Donald" is going to lose some of his HUGE lead & who will end up grabbing those precious and fickle voters?
The fun is only beginning, but on a serious note, Republicans need to start to get acquainted with these candidates because before you know it, the field will be down to just a few and the GOP can ill afford another disappointment in the race for the White House.
