Donald Trump took center stage in the GOP's first televised 2016 presidential debate in Cleveland on Thursday night. Right from the start when one of the three FOX TV moderates, Brett Baier, asked which of the GOP candidates would not support the eventual GOP nominee in the Fall of 2016.
Without hesitation, the DONALD raised his hand. He even intimated that he would entertain the idea of running as an Independent.
Some says that Megan Kelly's line of questioning to Trump regarding Trump's misogynist statements regarding women he had allegedly made in the past cut Trump down to size. Not so! On the first reply he hurled back at Kellly Trump said he was only referring to Rosie O'Donnell. The guy has some Schmaltz. He dominates. He resonates. The whole place just hums with him being present on stage.
The other bums in the proceedings, particularly JEB BUSH, did not really amount to anything, certainly nothing earthshaking.
Some in the media pointed out that Ohio Governor John Kasich had a great line regarding "unconditional love" during the segment on Gay Marriage. That's such a low bar with Democrats, I guess for Republicans that amounts to a watershed moment. Whoopeee. Who Cares?
The biggest loser of the night was Jeb Bush. Insipid, lackluster, tame, professorial, unassuming, half-hearted, there was nothing about him to even remotely suggest a leader of presidential caliber. He's a government, policy-oriented type but he is not presidential caliber any more than the rest of the ragtag lot of GOP 2016 candidates.
