    After watching the last two republican debates, I was shocked at how low these candidates will go in order to attack each other. Small body parts, petty name calling, and other potty mouth language one would normally hear in a high school locker room left me shaking my head. I thought Rubio was not going to engage in this tactic, but even he is taking the low road. I don't want these people representing America on the world stage. They are just plain embarrassing. 🙁

    If Vermin Supreme had been on the stage with them tonight, he would have been the most "presidential" of the bunch.

    Only four clowns left in the GOP Clown Car. And it looks like the blowhard with the most clown-like hair-do is going to be winner. Go figure.

    Trump has pulled them all down in the mud where he wants them. What a spectacle.

    I'm left wondering who is this "Vermin Supreme" you mention?

    As a Democrat, I thought the testosterone display was amusing. At one point, I even said, "Hit 'im in the mouth!" Can you imagine the media storm a fistfight would have produced?

    I have to admit. I was also rooting for a fistfight.

    I could just see Rubio, Cruz and Trump in a pile clawing at each other and Kasich standing above them "tut-tut"ing and shaking his head sadly.

    He has so thoroughly trounced the rest of the field, they have nowhere left to go. I think that especially Republican constituencies are tired of being baselessly accused of bigotry, and other sins, that they are glad to finally have a standard bearer who isn't joining an apology tour.

    Welcome to the amoral vacuum of secular humanistic Progressive utopia bill.

    I think Kasich was waiting for them to tackle each other so that he could then run up and get a few easy head kicks to finish them all off.

    Yeah great. He's not apologizing for...

    1) totally backing away from his published immigration plan (the only reason to vote for him).

    2) declaring he will force American soldiers to break the law to torture people and maybe murder children.

    3) Trump university and other shadiness.

    But hey his dick is luxuriously sized so ...

    Why do you keep making Trump sound like a monster?

    Stop quoting him, it's unfair to use his own words against him.

    This has nothing to do with an "apology tour" Norm. This has to do with sticking to the very serious issues facing our country. i.e. Our infrastructure, our 2nd rate education system, our homeless veterans, our economy etc. Millions of viewers wanted these people on that stage to engage in a serious debate on these issues, and to tell us their solutions to those, and other problems we face. Most viewers consider those issues slightly more important (believe it or not) than the size of one's body part's, sweating backstage, and other petty nonsense these candidates engaged in. These are Presidential debates Norm, NOT the Howard Stern show. Duhhhh... 😞

    Yes, but could Trump's tiny hands make a dent in even Marcobot's glass jaw?

    Those in the field can bring up those issues. Why don't they? I'm not offended by a politician changing his mind on a poorly conceived plan. I'd add that my preference over Trump would be Cruz.

    But any one of the Republicans is head and shoulders ahead of either Hillary or Bernie.

    I don't recall shlongs being an issue before.
