      Piper, ‘m waiting to see if the Republican National Committee come down on CNBC for a political attack on Republican candidates instead of offering them a national media forum.

      IMO, the RNC could gain a large amount of power if they stood up to these politicized propaganda “debates, but if the RNC/GOPe remain silent about a media that is now a nationalized political weapon, then Trump wins a huge advantage and there will be negotiations about future involvement in debacles such as this.

    Small comment. But reviewing the intro. Bush look very uncomfortable, Rubio smile looked fake, Fiorina had both trait. Carson also seem like he wasn’t looking forward to this night.

    This was my first impression just looking at facial expressions.

    I wonder if other viewer got the same energy, right from the get go, from those 4 candidates?

  5. These morons at cnbc just can’t help themselves. I swear it’s a DNA issue at work here. They just had to spew the lie, based on the fraudulent poll based on double sampling and tossing out undesired responses. “Carson is leading national polls”. This is what we are up against – Marxist freedom-haters.

    I got really upset with the constant commenting on the debate by the guys from InfoWars. Jones and his staff have more to offer than smart alec commenting. That said, I do appreciate that it was live streamed for those of us who don’t have cable that supports the station that aired the debate.

    Also, I’d love to see 3 -5 women libs ask the candidates questions. Can you imagine the potential for cat-fighting among the moderators. Could be hysterical comedy fighting.

      It was so unfair it was parody. And a number of the candidates did a GREAT job of pointing that out. At least to pretty much everyone except the type of audience that flocks to MSNBC or HuffPo, and a lesser extent CNN. Those poor souls are beyond help. Believe me, I watch the comments there just to remind myself how truly brainwashed some people can get. (Not that there are not some on the right, but they are more a curiosity than a threat )

    Megyn Kelly set the template for these disgraceful “debates” also, I think that Trump, in a way, liberated the candidates to speak freely for once in their lives by his own honest responses in his campaign.

    Newsbusters weighs in:

    “The CNBC moderators acted less like journalists and more like Clinton campaign operatives. What was supposed to be a serious debate about the many issues plaguing our economy was given up for one Democratic talking point after another served up by the so-call ‘moderators.’ They clearly war-gamed this thinking that a relentless series of personal attacks on the candidates would somehow drive their ratings and help Hillary Clinton.

    The CNBC debate will go down in history as an encyclopedic example of liberal media bias on stage. The audience roared its disdain for these so-called ‘journalists,’ and all of America heard it. CNBC should be embarrassed for their pitiful display of partisan liberal media bias and apologize to the GOP candidates and the American people.”

    Seeing comments that Cruz did well. Yes Cruz slammed the media and moderators and he slammed them hard. Other than that, I was not impressed with his answers. He just can’t seem to communicate in a way that makes him ‘relatable’. Just me or do others get the same impression? That being said, Ted is perfect for the SCOTUS.

      I have a problem with him. Someone mentioned his odd pauses between words make him seem phoney. I know he Is a fighter, but he never seems to accomplish anything. So I wonder if most of it is just for show.


      • Wiggy says:

        When you or your friends speak, how many times do you or them say “and uh” or “uh” or “like” or some other utterance? In Toastmasters you learn to pause silently rather than use those lazy phrases in public speaking. I know, I got the “Ah Master” award for a 6th month period for using those too often in my speeches. The trophy was a little guy with a big open mouth. When you get an award like that among all your friends it teaches you to use the silent pauses. Perhaps Cruz learned that lesson too. So did he do this because of training or because he had a problem thinking of what he would say? Be fair.

    My take

    Trump: Wins… He did everything Trumptastic. He was himself and said what needed to be said. He was nice and even helped Carson and winked at him. Very nice

    Carson: stumbled some.. very hard to follow but perhaps my feeble mind is unable to follow. Whateva

    Cruz: Did very well

    Lots of cool Zings

    Losers of the night: MEDIA… they were blasted by I think every candidate. YAY The media sux! Also the moderators who I thought were ridiculous at best.

    Thank God that is over. I will await the spin from the media braincells… that I could care less about. I have low expectations for their “opinions”

    At the Republican debate hosted by CNBC in Boulder, Colorado Wednesday night, presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz lambasted the moderators, particularly John Harwood of The New York Times, and the media for their treatment and characterization of himself and his competitors.

    “The questions asked in this debate illustrate why the American people don’t trust the media,” Cruz at Wednesday’s Republican debate. “Everyone home tonight knows that the moderators have no intention of voting in a Republican primary.”

    Cruz later went tete-a-tete with Harwood, a CNBC contributor, for cutting him off and wanting to move on.

    “Congressional Republicans, Democrats and the White House are about to strike a compromise that would raise the debt limit, prevent a government shutdown, and calm financial markets of the fear that a Washington crisis is on the way. Does your opposition to it show you’re not the kind of problem-solver that American voters want?” CNBC anchor Carl Quintanilla asked the presidential candidate.

    “Let me say something at the outset,” the Senator from Texas said. “The questions asked in this debate illustrate why the American people don’t trust the media.”

    “This is not a cage match. And you look at the questions — Donald Trump, are you a comic book villain? Ben Carson, can you do math? John Kasich, will you insult two people over here? Marco Rubio, why don’t you resign? Jeb Bush, why have your numbers fallen? How about talking about the substantive issues,” Cruz said to commanding applause from the audience.

    “Do we get credit for this one,” Quintanilla asked Cruz?

    “And Carl, I’m not finished yet. The contrast with the Democratic debate, where every thought and question from the media was, which of you is more handsome and why?” Cruz asked and then paused to cough.

    “You have 30 seconds left to answer should you choose to do so,” Quintanilla told the candidate.

    “Let me be clear,” Cruz said. “The men and women on this stage have more ideas, more experience, more common sense, than ever participant in the Democratic debate. That debate reflected a debate between the Bolsheviks and the Mensheviks.”

    “Nobody believes that the moderators have any intention of voting in a Republican primary,” Cruz said.

    “The questions being asked shouldn’t be trying to get people to tear into each other, it should be what are your substantive solutions to people at home,” Cruz said before getting cut off.

    “I asked you about the debt limit and got no answer,” Quintanilla said.

    “You want an answer to that question?” Cruz asked. “I’d be happy to answer your question.”

    Cruz was interrupted this time by John Harwood who said “we’re moving on.”

    “Senator [Rand] Paul, I’ve got a question for you,” Harwood said in his attempt to move on.

    “So you don’t actually want to hear the answer, John?” Cruz called out the anchor. “You don’t want to hear the answer, you just want to incite insults.”

    “You used your time on something else,” a dismissive Harwood said.

    “You’re not interested in an answer,” Cruz scolded.

    “I’m interested in an answer from Senator Paul,” Harwood retorted.

    • Mike says:

      Oratically Rubio did pretty well, but his positions suck and he cut Senate votes that Cruz made. Cruz didn’t have the baggage while delivering standout performance. Trump had strategic wins by his presence and calmer demeanor with well timed statements. Good leadership involves timing and presence, not having to fight each word, too.


  34. wyntre says:

    A furious Reince Priebus came out right after the CNBC debate was over for the sole purpose of blasting the moderators in a statement to the media, for giving what he called ‘one gotcha question, one personal low blow after the other.’

    Priebus said he is proud of the candidates for sticking together tonight in a hostile environment but he’s very disappointed in the moderators and the CNBC network.

    Trump did answer wrong regarding H1B visa contradicting his immigration plan. In his immigration plan he say he was in favor of reducing or adding top line wages to H1B to make it more competitive with local wages and maybe have requirement to hire people in USA first.

    He probably confuse with VISA for top student from Harvard and Yale that wanted to stay here etc. His speech always state that he wanted top foreign student and professional have expedited immigration process if they wanted to stay.

    I feel like Jeb is done after today’s debate after Rubio bashed him. This will be dangerous because Rubio might take Jeb supporters.

    Cruz also did good bashing the moderators and after that the audience BOO any questions that was unfair other candidates start refusing to answer some questions also.

    CNBC Loss and Jeb Bush Loss. Trump probably would stay the same..


  37. sam says:

    As for the bankruptcy questions, they keep bringing this up when it’s not personal bankruptcy. Fox brought it up the first time and CNBC still bringing this up again. Normal people that are uneducated will not understand between personal and corporate bankruptcy.
