CNN Helps The Republican Party Disgrace America At Their First Republican Debate

cnn first republican debate

The first part of CNN’s Republican debate was an embarrassment that was televised around the world. The American people deserve an apology for this showcase of Republican crazy.

The four candidates on stage begin by introducing themselves, which is good because according to polling nobody knows who they are. The first question of the debate was about Donald Trump, and Bobby Jindal tried to muster up the fire to repeat his same claims that Trump is an unqualified narcissist.

The second question of the debate was about Trump, and Rick Santorum offered a weak defense of Trump. The third question was about Trump. The fourth question was from Hugh Hewitt, and it was about Trump. George Pataki has enough and called out the absurdity of the Trump questions, and said that Trump will not be the Republican nominee.

The debate finally moved off of Trump for a second and moved on to immigration where Rick Santorum did his best Trump impression by falsely claiming that illegal immigrants are taking jobs away from American citizens. The debate turned into the typical Republican slap fight over who hates immigrants more.

Pataki demonstrated why he had no chance of being the Republican nominee by opposing birthright citizenship and sending immigrants back. Lindsey Graham said that immigrants need to speak English and said that he has never met an “illegal Canadian.”

Graham and Santorum got into the most interesting argument of this debate over Rick Santorum’s 2006 immigration bill. Santorum: “I had a bill.” Graham: “It went nowhere.”

Bobby Jindal blamed Obama for the Syrian refugee crisis. Graham blames Obama for pulling the troops out of Iraq. Graham then wanted to use ground troops to fight ISIS. Graham tried to get the other candidates to commit to US ground troops and was met with silence.

Jindal made the gaffe of the night when he said that the 14-year-old Muslim student should not have been arrested, but he was glad that the police were vigilant.

The topic moved to Kim Davis, who Rick Santorum compared to the girl who stood up to the gunman at Columbine. Pataki proved that he was the only sane person at this debate by saying that he would have fired Kim Davis and that people have to follow the rule of law.

Santorum responded by comparing Kim Davis to Martin Luther King.

Bobby Jindal tried to play the Washington outsider, but he was reminded by Lindsey Graham that he was in Congress. Jindal wanted the Senate to use the nuclear option to pass the Iran disapproval resolution, defund Planned Parenthood, and shut down the government.

Graham responded by calling Jindal out for being dishonest and then told Republicans the way it really was. Graham said I am not going to shut the government down and tank the Republican chances of winning in 2016.

CNN televised this disgraceful debate to people all around the world. Republican candidates on the stage made several horrifying statements. If people in another country knew nothing about American politics, and just saw this debate, they would come away thinking that the United States is full of crazy people.

Four candidates who are not going to be elected president participated in a debated that was a national embarrassment. CNN should be ashamed of their ratings grab. The cable news network owes the American people an apology.

Winners and Losers:

Winners:

George Pataki – Pataki might be a loser with the Republican rank and file, but to non-Republicans, Pataki sounded like the only almost sane person on the stage.

Losers:

Lindsey Graham – Sen. Graham could not contain his bloodlust for a new war in the Middle East, and he couldn’t restrain himself from telling Republicans to stop hating Hispanic people. Graham demonstrated why he was polling at 1% or less in the polls.

Rick Santorum
– Santorum still thinks that he was running in 2012. Many of his answers sounded almost exactly the same. Santorum shouldn’t be on any stage. His presidential campaign is a waste of time.

Bobby Jindal – Jindal couldn’t decide if he was the angry Trump hater or the evangelical crusader. His claim that Kim Davis going to prison for breaking the law was the same as a 14-year-old Muslim teen getting arrested for bringing a clock to school was stunning. Jindal represents much of what is wrong with the Republican Party.

CNN – From their obsession with Donald Trump to the horrible candidates on the stage, the CNN first debate was a total loser.

Graham said I am not going to shut the government down and tank the Republican chances of winning in 2016”. Hate to tell Miss Lindsey this, but you’re too late, The Gop tanked out some time ago.

  2. CNN since July-
    “TRUMP, TRUMP, TRUMPETY TRUMP, bush…TRUMP, TRUMP, DONALD, TRUMP, e-mail scandal, EXCLUSIVE TRUMP INTERVIEW!…TRUMP, TRUMP, Carson, Carly… TONIGHT DEBATE! TRUMP? TRUMP? TRUMP? TRUMP! Tomorrow on New Day: TRUMP!
    Never thought I’d miss wall to wall plane crash coverage.

  3. Not anything substantial about what these people would do as president. Yes, it was an embarrassment and contributed nothing as far as the upcoming election. They just showed what crazy nuts they are. No wonder they were at the children’s table.

  4. I dunno Dubs, that damn Morning Joe is trash tv. That Lindsey G., a little liar like Rancid Penis, never mentioned that George W signed the order to bring the troops home. Not Prez Obama. He just loves attempting to reincarnate General McArthur. You could almost see his toungue hanging to his waist, lusting to smash him some Muslims in the Middle East. Pitiful.

  5. “The four candidates on stage begin by introducing themselves, which is good because according to polling nobody knows who they are. ”
    [Winky] ?????????

  6. Humm… A lot of people think that “Illegal Immigrants” are taking jobs away white Americans…

    “It does not make a lot of sense to me to bring hundreds of thousands of those workers into this country to work for minimum wage and compete with American kids.” B. Sanders

  7. “If people in another country knew nothing about American politics, and just saw this debate, they would come away thinking that the United States is full of crazy people.”

    Most people in other countries follow what goes on in US politics, and they already think, correctly, that the United States are full of crazy people.

  8. Graham wouldn’t know a Canadian if he walked up and slapped him in the face. Not that a Canadian would do that, but just sayin’.

  9. Oh shut up, Stupid. When we want your two cents on a subject you’re antithetical to then we’ll knock it out of you.

  10. LOL, no one even paid attention to the first debate. I heard the crap they were spewing and put the first debate on mute on my tv. Lindsay Graham made everything about illegal immigration about race which is ridiculous.

  11. I don’t know how Jindal can look himself in the mirror OR sleep at night.

    And WHEN will these lying bastards get called out when they start in about PP selling baby parts? No one ever corrects them, so all the idiots in America think it’s the gospel truth.

    I can’t wait for the rep/dem debates.

  12. And why the hell are these idiots not called out by the commentators when they start these lies and inaccuracies??? What a bunch of BS!

  13. I did not bother to watch the debate but I want to post something I have posted before.
    Re Trump, Mexico, Slavery and Texas: Best I can recall, Mexico’s “Grito de Dolores” was on 16 Sep 1810. It took Mexico 11 years to completely free itself from Spain. In 1829, Mexico abolished slavery.
    Problem: Settlers from the southeastern USA had been allowed to settle in Texas as long as they abided my Mexican law. What to do about the slaves the southerners brought with them? The battle for Texas Independence was on and Austin and Houston won, primarily because of the incompetence of General Santa Anna.
    I’ve mentioned this before but don’t be too surprised if Texas turns purple pretty soon because of what is called the HISPANIC EPIDEMIOLOGIC PARADOX. If you are interested in this aspect of politics, it is worth a read.
    Keep it up Trump. You are making it so easy to get Latinos, Asian Americans and African Americans riled up enough to get off their asses and go vote.
    Go Trump.
    Go …

  15. Dj American kids have worked in the fields.(green Giant )My Son-in-law did in High school and college. says it was a terrible job and he would never do it again. So there you have it, they do, BUT not for long. Keeping them there is what the thugs want. Not allowing education is the plan.
