Overview thoughts. The auditorium venue was absolutely structured with GOPe types. Support for Jeb Bush, and Marco Rubio was far more evident than exists in a general republican population. Party insiders within South Carolina, including Nikki Haley, obviously influenced who was within the participating audience.
There was an earlier South Carolina delegate meeting/convention prior to the debate. Insider sources on social media indicate most of the official South Carolina Republican Party delegates are pro-Rubio; many believe this is by specific GOPe design.
That explains the audience responses to both Jeb Bush an Marco Rubio.
Simultaneously, this same group (audience participating) understands the best way to eliminate Trump is to use Ted Cruz to attack him. And Ted Cruz fell for it hook, line and sinker; just like the useful, and willing, idiot he is.
Always remember the GOPe party goal (Rubio and Bush) has never changed:
….Remove Donald Trump and Ted Cruz becomes Newt Gingrich, Ben Carson becomes Herman Cain, and GOPe candidate Rubio/Bush becomes Mitt Romney circa 2012.
It begins by “removing Donald Trump“.
The battle is playing out among candidates, but it ultimately for the entire construct of the Republican Party – and the beneficiaries therein.
The GOPe, Wall Street, K-Street, and corporate U.S. interests do not want Trump any where near the presidency because he will destroy their grip on power. Those who are professional political agents of the GOPe (Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, Nikki Haley types) must do the bidding of the power structures to retain their own graft.
Two separate divisions within the GOPe: The old guard (Jeb Bush) team, and the legislative class, new guard, (Marco Rubio) team. What you saw play out tonight was the result of the professional Republican Party working earnestly to insure that only a member of their club is given the advantage.
Donald Trump is considered an insurgent.
Ted Cruz is considered a right-wing extremist useful to get rid of Trump.
Everything you saw tonight was evidence of this structure playing out.
