GOP DEBATE GRADES!

I watched every minute of the first GOP Presidential Debate 8/6.  I was not disappointed, 17 folks put forth their best efforts, and some sadly, were lacking!  I prepared notes, grades for each, including opening, closing remarks, response to questions, attitude, disposition and effectiveness, creating a grading system of 1 – 100, 100 being highest, 70 being passing, below 70, failure.  Judging performances, some were very good, others not so good…you reach your own conclusions.

Most of the seven on the early show failed.

Rick Perry – 70.

Gov. Pataki – 60.

Carly Fiorina – 88.

Rick Santorum – 55.

Bobby Jindal – 70.

Lindsey Graham – 40.

Gov. Gilmore – 42.

I would promote FIORINA to the top tier, without doubt, she was truly outstanding, and Rick Perry’s complement to her was GREAT!  Gov. Bobby Jindal did good, would like to hear more from him!  Gov. Rick Perry definitely improved over his last run, and earns another look.  Lindsey Graham was the flop of the night, time for him to say “Good Bye!”  Pataki, Santorum, Gilmore were all sadly lacking!

The top 10 were as good as advertised, each were interesting.

Marco Rubio – 70.

Dr. Carson – 55.

Jeb Bush – 68.

Donald Trump – 80.

Ted Cruz – 80.

Chris Christie – 55.

John Kasich – 55.

Rand Paul – 62.

Mike Huckabee – 68.

Scott Walker – 77.

I calls ’em as I sees ’em …I will appreciate your ideas, comments.  This BLOG is widely monitored! Of course, all are subject to change, but those who tabulated below 70 should look to get out now!

Here Comes Hillary!

Today, 7/13/2015,  Hillary Rodham Clinton sought to re-invent herself for the umpteenth time! She provided her Pablum, Gruel that is her fare.

She took on Wall Street, took a giant step toward informing Democrat voters that she is the Progressive Candidate with a progressive agenda. “Tax increases and more regulation on Wall Street with regulatory burdens on employers; more government spending in an attempt to out spend Barack Hussein Obama, paid for by more government debt.”  One would think that Hillary had been sleeping these past 6 years, as that Obama attitude didn’t work out very well!  She is trying to eliminate her opponent, Sen.  Bernie Sanders, in her demented  party  dominated by the progressive left.

It will be interesting to see how GOP candidates deal with her agenda.  I would like to see less business regulation, turn the economy loose, not impede it with more regulatory burdens. Less federal programs, less federal spending. A BUDGET that the politicians must live by!

Hope you will read and comment, we are getting a lot of hits, and we are just beginning!
