Cruz wiped the floor with Trump on the citizenship attack.

    Barry in reply to Sanddog. | January 14, 2016 at 9:53 pm

    I’ve made it very clear I thin Cruz is a natural born citizen, based upon the law that exists.

    But I think you’re wrong about “wiped the floor”. Cruz did nothing to clear up the mystery. Those less familiar with the issue got no answers. I would have spent less time trying to belittle trump and a minute explaining the issue and why any challenge will simply fail in court.

    OTOH, I’m finding this debate entertaining so far…

    And Trump wiped floor with Cruz on New York.

      Sanddog in reply to Gary Britt. | January 14, 2016 at 11:42 pm

      That depends on where you are, I guess. NYC elected de Blasio. If that’s not worthy of ridicule, I can’t imagine what would be.

    Not according to the professor that taught Cruz constitutional law.

      You have a propensity for citing leftist sources for your arguments. I guess that way you never run out of arguments when attacking others on the right you disagree with.

Kimberlee Kaye – all in for Trump or Rubio.

Those tweet-comments……… #yourbiasisshowing

    “Kimberlee Kaye – all in for Trump or Rubio.”

    OK, she is certainly all in for Rubio. How you get trump is way beyond my pay grade. I would say it is precisely the opposite. Maybe she is a “Troll”.

I am not a Marco Rubio fan but Rubio is absolutely correct that Cruz’s tax plan is a VAT tax and it is insane. Either Cruz doesn’t understand his own tax plan or Cruz is a liar.

Cruz is not stupid so he is lying about his vat tax plan, and I find this to be a huge knock on his character and fitness for office.

Adopting a vat tax without a constitutional amendment to limit the maximum rate and eliminate the income tax would be an act of suicide for the country. It really is that insane and how Cruz as smart as he is doesn’t see this is mind boggling.

Cruz gets booed after Rubio calls him out on all his immigration flip flops.

We are down to two, Cruz and Trump, nobody else mattered. We will here how Rubio/Christie/bush did this did that blah blah blah, but it doesn’t matter, they are not even in the race anymore.

If you do not like trump (I do) then you better drop your fav and get behind Cruz. Even then it is only a remote chance.

Trump won the debate, by a mile. His numbers will go up. That is the metric by which I judge him the winner. He only had to not hurt himself and he did much more. NYC values. Ted is going to wish he never went there.

Trump’s the nominee and will win the election in a landslide. Write it down.

Barry and Gary are Trump trolls. Every time I come to LI now, they are all over every comment thread……trolling Trump.

I wonder how much they get paid to post so much drek……

    Actually, I’m a trump / cruz “troll”. I have always defended both against scurrilous slander. Trump receives the most here so you would find more posts defending him than Cruz. But I have also defended Cruz.

    I have vacillated over the two, Cruz 1 and trump 2, but currently find myself with trump 1. This is probably because that sticks it to the loathsome GOPe the deepest…

    Who do you support DINO? Does that then make you a troll? Do you even know what a troll is?

    ” Every time I come to LI now, they are all over every comment thread”

    Do you find anyone else “all over every comment thread” making the case for/against some candidate? Or is it just that your bias against trump blinds you to reality?

    And you Dino are an intellectually lazy fool who can’t compete in the contest of words and ideas so you try to silence those who express ideas you don’t support. You claim to be a conservative but you behave l8ke a liberal fascist when it comes to interacting in the marketplace of ideas. Maybe you should listen more or only go to blogs where you are sure to only encounter thoughts that reaffirm your own because you are clearl unequipped intellectual or emotionally to interact with others on an adult basis.

Fox did a lousy job.
Too bad there aren’t any adults working there.
