The GOP debate lacking one thing..FACTS!The candidates didn't do their homework before making claims that ranged from the economy, to welders,(LOL),to "China taking advantage of the US", the Russians in Syria,and one candidate claiming "the Chinese are there" as well,referring to Syria!Did any one candidate REALLY impress you?

CRUZ, holding out his hand and unfolding one finger at a time to punctuate his point: "Five major agencies that I would eliminate: the IRS (his thumb), the Department of Commerce (index finger), the Department of Energy (middle finger), uh, the Department of Commerce (ring finger), and HUD (pinkie)."
THE FACTS: He flubbed his own list, naming the Commerce Department twice and leaving out one of the agencies he proposes to close, according to his website: the Education Department.

DONALD TRUMP: The Pacific trade agreement signed by President Obama with 11 other nations "was designed for China to come in through the back door and take advantage of everyone. ... China takes advantage (of the U.S.) through currency manipulation."
THE FACTS: The Trans-Pacific Partnership trade pact, signed last month, does not include China and is intended to give the United States more influence in Asia as a counterweight to China's rising economic power. Obama argues that China could join later, but without having any influence on the agreement's terms.

CARLY FIORINA: "Obamacare isn't really helping anybody."
THE FACTS:In the two years it's been in effect, the share of Americans without health insurance has declined to 9 percent, a historic low. People with pre-existing health conditions can no longer be turned away by insurers, and everyone is required to have coverage or face fines.

CARSON: Discussing the presence of Russian troops in Syria, added that "the Chinese are there" as well.
THE FACTS: China has no publicly known deployment of military forces in Syria. In recent days, some news reports have suggested that China would send a warship to Syria, but China's foreign ministry has denied that.
China has used its status as a permanent member of the U.N. Security Council to block the U.N. from taking action on Syria, citing a commonly heard argument against violating Syrian sovereignty.

Chris Christie is one set of cement shoes away from being a "made man"..his kids hated sitting with him...lol

CRUZ muffed his list -- big deal. Clinton has no list for cutting our bloated list government..
TRUMP spoke correctly. China will be allowed by the TPP agreement to join the partnership later. Once in, they will dominate simply by their size alone. Trump was also correct on this point.

CARSON said the Chinese are in Syria. And they are.

FIORINA pointed to this:
There are more poor in America today than before Obama.

@Daver CRUZ muffed his list -- big deal. Clinton has no list for cutting our bloated list government.. TRUMP spoke...

Trump looked like a fool..China is NOT included NOW..
I checked your Carson/China link and a few others..
http://www.businessinsider.com/...hina-2-2015-11

http://www.reuters.com/article/...0S80W120151014
and there has been no verified info that China is/will be/
in Syria

The link for Fiorina was Oct.2014...the numbers for 2015 improved

Bottom line..IMO if you're going to run for POTUS,know WTF
you're talking about...

It's disheartening. There's never much substance - just hopefuls trying to out demagogue each other.

I will say though that my favorite moment came in the first Republican debate when Trump told us all he bought favors from politicians - some of which were on the stage with him. That was probably a truthful statement.

s usual Chloe they did not even come close. They are a collective of reality tv stars, yacht club members, and guys who's mentality displays an image of several people sitting on a pickup truck in Bodeen Texas passing around beers and talking about "politickin'" and fighting over who believes in god more

I don't want tunnels or walls! Drug cartels are determined and have the money and labor to build a way in.For every tunnel that is discovered,there are twenty undiscovered.

When the Mexican government treats the cartels like criminals,instead of celebrities,and corruption and payoffs
aren't tolerated,the US is fighting a losing battle.

Trump wants to put his own money,so he says,into a wall
...if he wants to really help,put that cash into more border patrols,better equipment,etc...it's gonna get ugly for Trump when he won't,can't,or most likely,swears he never said it..
THAT'S the one thing he is consistent about

liberals just as much

@Anonymousmouse liberals just as much

Liberals,Conservatives...their only loyalty is to their respective parties,and I'm not entirely sure of that!!
