    That was so depressing to watch. And embarrassing. And entertaining.

    What a mess.

    based on the reviews they should probably just cancel the season, blow up the team and start over.

    Trump is nuts. But the moderators dealt him unfair questions.

    Really liked kasich, but he's not crazy enough to get the nomination. Trump wants to set up the nights watch on the border with Mexico, which is interesting. Really disappointed by Jeb!, he really fucked up his closing statement

    They were completely fair based upon his asinine comments.

    When the dust settles, what is the DVU consensus on the final two candidates? I'm thinking it is almost a lock to be Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton.

    I thought Rubio did a decent job. The debate itself left much to be desired. The moderator's did a regrettable job.

    Republican primary seems like it's going to be a war of attrition...who can go the longest without saying something incredibly stupid. Will likely end up being Bush as he's not saying much.

    On the other side it's Bernie or Hillary. Sanders is a little nuts and won't be able to control himself very long. In the end, Hillary's got enough money behind her.

    Once we're at that point, I no longer care, really. And like every election I've participated in for the 20 years I've been voting, I vote a straight cynical ticket.

    Agree with that as well. However, I think he has a stronger network and far stronger fund raising than any of the other candidates and that will win out in the end.

    I prefer Rubio and Cruz to Jeb Bush for sure but in the end I have my doubts that either (or any of the other Republican candidates) can beat him.

    Bernie is very open about being a communist. America spent the bulk of the last century fighting communism. Bernie is a legit candidate for president.

    Can't explain that

    I think he may be serious. Sanders isn't a full blown communist (at least I don't think he is or claims to be) but he has referred to himself openly as a socialist, and the fact that unlike Clinton or Obama (who both have heavily socialist leanings but absolutely never refer to themselves as socialist) he has often claimed to be socialist and that is a pretty telling statement. One thing I will say that I do admire, at least he is who he is and isn't trying to bullshit anyone about what his political beliefs are.

    I believe Bernie identifies as a Democratic Socialist but to act like he wants to completely switch from capitalism to socialism and have the government own everything is completely disingenuous.

    Kasich doesn't have a great shot but he's got a better one than people realize. A lot of candidates are banking on New Hampshire and he has the best organization there.

    Cruz campaign is hurting (thank god)

    I honestly don't understand how the country could entertain the idea of electing him. I understand different viewpoints and appreciate the liberal beliefs, but I have no idea how America can drift so far left as to elect a socialist. Even if making America a socialist state isn't his agenda, the point of view with which he approaches things are fundamentally un- American

    He probably doesn't have a real shot of even winning the nomination. He's the left's answer to Cruz.

    How do you propose to fix this weath gap? The wealthy already pay higher than their share of income taxes. I am not wealthy by any means, but I don't begrudge the wealthy for their success. I don't want to see more tax burden placed on the middle and working class in order to fund more handout programs, and I don't agree that healthcare is a right guaranteed by the Constitution. I have healthcare because I have a job, but that healthcare has gotten considerably more expensive for me personally due to the government healthcare initiative, which affects my net income adversely.

    Anyway, sorry for the mini rant. I know I am not going to change anyone's mind.

    I like Carson, have since I heard him speak in person. But I don't think he has a long term shot of getting elected. I think he would be a good cabinet member for someone.
