Okay, What Did You Think Of The Debates?

What Do You Think?

Sponsored by CrisDental Family Dentistry Eugene/Oregon

What do you think of the Republican Debates last night? Did you watch?

What did you learn about the candidates?

Did anything said change your mind?

My thoughts are as follows:

For me Vivek Ramaswamy was the clear winner if a debate has a winner.

He commanded the stage, didn’t stick to a script and gave me hope for a new vision for America.

I obviously really like the guy but you watch, the media, especially the legacy media, will bring out their fire power and try to discredit and silence him just like they did Trump because he is not part of the political elite system many of us detest.

I don’t agree with him on everything but he has a vision for America and a business background to get us there.

He sure inspires me more than any of the other typical candidates.

Pence looked like a bully and tried to take credit for what Trump did while Pence was VP

Nicki Haley was tough and called out Ramaswamy for his stand on foreign affairs. She did a great job and he’s got some things to think about and educate himself on.

I think she’d make a great VP or Secretary of State in the next administration.

Ron DeSantis didn’t do well. I think he’s a great leader for Florida but he fails to have a vision or maybe it’s just his personality that comes off really flat.

If it came down to DeSantis and Biden you know how I’m gonna vote. He’s just not a great, inspiring guy.

I think there is one clear winner last night at that’s Ramaswamy. The guy gives me hope for America. I don’t care that he’s young, perhaps we need someone other than 80 year old white men in charge.

After watching last night I don’t know how anyone could support Joe Biden accept for those who only vote Democrat and even that’s a poor excuse.

In my perfect world this race would be between RFK Jr and Ramaswamy. I don’t agree with them of everything but at least they are not afraid to go against Washington DC or the corrupt creatures who run the place.

But it will probably come down to Biden and Trump.

Because it seems we are damned in our desire for comfort and “say’ we want something new but always go back to the same old song and dance.

I hope I’m wrong but at the very least it’s nice to see people like Kennedy and Ramaswamy reminding us of what we could have if we just had the balls to go there.

Would love to hear your opinions.

Vivek was the clear winner. He was brave and unflinching when he spoke out in support of Trump. Some of his policies are as unpopular as his support of Trump but I think most have not thought through the ideas enough to be able to see why they make sense. If they listen they will learn. Vivek may not have the political experience but like he said, he's also not bought and paid for which is the very thing I loved about Trump. He's fresh, articulate, smart and has business and global experience. The rest of the Candidates may know how to work the 'system', but do we really want more of the same?

Pence was very rude and I…

Thank you for your insights. My only comment is how can you blame Pence and others of being rude, when you have the King of Rude (tRump) as your Supreme Leader?

Vivek Ramaswamy said some ridiculous, outrageous things (Climate Change is a hoax, trump was the best president in history - if president he would pardon trump, his global surrender tour - no more aid to Ukraine and just let Putin have his way, which just makes him a big-time Putin/trump Puppet, give Taiwan to China by 2028, defund Israel, etc ).

Pence did better than I thought (he showed a spine), but he should have avoided the abortion topic.

The rest of the candidates were just taking up space and time.

Nikki Haley absolutely SCHOOLED Vivek - she definitely won the night and I liked most of what she said (and I'm a Democrat).


I was disappointed. I watched the first hour and half. Here are my thoughts/opinions:

  1. I did not like the format, having a minute only gives us soundbites. I am tired of soundbites as they don't allow time for substance.

  2. I thought the moderators tried to cover too much in the first debate and should have focused on the top tier of concerns, this would have allowed for more details on what they would do as president for each issue.

  3. Vivek did show his youth regarding how he would handle foreign affairs, but I do like his stance that we need to rethink how we handle foreign affairs and providing foreign aid.

  4. Vivek is of interest to me but I don't…



I think Vivek looked bad and has a weak grasp on important issues. Trump Pardon, Ukraine (giving up on beating Putin) Israel-wants to stop aid, a global surrender tour. He thinks Trump is the greatest President of the century? When Christie needled him, he laughed. At least no one criticized him for taking money from the Soros family some years ago.

Christie and Nikki came out strong and stayed that way.
