Who Won the FOX GOP Debate for you? Answer with one word, then your blovo :-)

The panelists:

Trump
Kaisch
Huckabee
Walker
Cruz
Rubio
Bush
Christie
Carson
Paul


Cruz.


Cruz was smart and picked answers straight from RedState that resonate well among the tea party set, but not so extreme as to flat out alienate the entire universe. That's how you win a primary. You turn yourself into more of a moderate when you're past the primary looking for crossover appeal.

I don't know who at FOX picked the "are you REALLY for total abortion bans, even when most Americans are for a life exception for the mother?" which killed Scott Walker. That's a question that normally Gwen Ifill would be asking the finalists. Dunno if you want to take that answer all the way to November 2016 and have "war on women!!!" chasing after you the whole year.

Kasich is horrible. Democrats think he's a threat, because he sounds like a moderate with some Democrat views [and they're right]. But that's toxic in a Republican Primary. Oh, and RedState hates you and wants you to die.

Trump bombed big time.

Carson isn't aggressive. He could be trying to avoid the artillery being lobbed and hold himself out as the "I'm not that stupid shit you see from the others" candidate and hoping to appeal to the annoyed voter completely tuned out to all rhetoric. He survives.

Paul absolutely murdered Chris Christie. Rolls his eyes at Christie when Christie tries to milk 9/11 to turn a point, AAAND gets away with it. Missed an opportunity to suggest that Bridgegate must have been a terrorist exercise, but it didn't matter. Instead, he went for the better option... Christie is an Obama-hugger.

Rubio comes off as simply too young and inexperienced, answers specific questions with generalizations then meanders, fixes it with his wrap-up speech.


Cruz is gonna get some of those Trump voters who are now giving up hope and since Fiorina won the JV debate I'm hoping she pulls up. Paul/Fiorina are my top picks, followed by Cruz, then Bush.

My fear with Cruz being president is that the Republicans will quickly lose control of Congress. To keep crappy gun control laws at bay you need Congress, not POTUS.

Trump's weakness on specifics was well apparent.
I thought Paul lost the exchange with Christie.
But Christie lost the exchange with Huckabee on SS reform.
Disappointed with Walker.
Bush sounds too much like a politician. And showed no fire.
Rubio, Carson and Cruz did well IMO. Carson held his own and had a few good lines.
Kasich had a home crowd which made him look better than he was. His answer about "we all have different solutions" (to immigration reform) was lame.

Losers - Paul, Christie, Trump,
Treading water - Bush, Walker, Kasich
Winners - Carson, Rubio, Cruz, Huckabee

Fiorina had the best anti Trump sound bite and won the 5 PM debate. Jindal also had a good showing. All the others looked unprepared and nervous except maybe Santorum who came out looking boastful.

What's a BLOVO? Shrug
I'm familiar with BLIVIT and BLIVET, but I've never heard of BLOVO and I can't find it online.
There are three types of people in the world:
Those who make things happen,
Those who watch things happen,
And those who wonder what happened.

I watched the 5:00 debate, and am still working on the "main event" via YouTube. The early group I rate in the following order:

Carly Fiorina
Bobby Jindal
George Pataki
Jim Gilmore
Rick Santorum
Rick Perry
Lindsay Graham

At the moment, with little change expected, the second group as follows:

Ted Cruz
Rand Paul
Marco Rubio
Ben Carson
Scott Walker
Donald Trump
Chris Christie
John Kasich
Jeb Bush
Mike Huckabee

I haven't taken the time to consider the whole group and rate them together yet.

They busted Trump big time with the questions on his past records....and he did nothing to redeem himself.

I liked Carson and Cruz best. They didn't give Carson much speaking time though. I was upset when they didn't even ask him about "black lives matter" (and isn't he from Baltimore area?!) although obviously someone told them to fix that because they added a postscript for him at the end. Cruz sounded good.

I don't know why they gave so much time to Kasich. Good grief. And he was annoying!

Walker was okay. I actually didn't like Rand too much. He came across as very egotistical. Christie, Huckabee, and Bush not worth the mention, and Bush and Huckabee also got too much time.

What?
Am I missing something or hasn't there been a one word response yet? (With a Blovo, whatever that is). I know, I haven't left a one word response either. Depending on what a Blovo is, this one might qualify. (Am I getting close?)
