Republican debate preview

so…Fox narrowed the field of contenders down to ten. I think they should’ve kept more. And my brilliant idea: ask the candidates simple questions, they write the answers, then they all display the answers at the same time. Sample questions:

Name a good thing a Democrat President has done

  • Name a bad thing a Republican President has done
  • Who’s your favorite Secretary of State, Secretary of Treasury, Secretary of Labor,…or any other Cabinet position.
  • What should be the top tax rate for businesses? For individuals?

Who is our greatest military threat?

  • Since we spend much more on defense than anyone else, how much should our military budget change?
  • What’s your primary news sources?
  • What book are you reading?
  • What level of carbon monoxide in the air is acceptable? Of mercury in the ground water? (Or any other common pollutant.)
  • Which of your colleagues up here do you think would do the best?
  • why are there no women on stage with you?

since so many, short answers let us get to know them. Questions that ask for specific numbers let us compare.

Alright…my quick thoughts on the contenders…

  • Trump…how is he wealthy? Seems like an huge ego idiot.
  • Jeb Bush… OK
  • Scott Walker… I live in Seattle, I’ve been programmed to think he’s evil
  • Ted Cruz…uh
  • Ben Carson…uh
  • Huchabee… Loved watching him on The Daily Show…says “we don’t have a skin problem, we have a sin problem.” OK governor, then why are you running for President. Just keep preaching.
  • Marco Rubio…OK
  • Rand Paul… Sure libertarianism seems cool in college…
  • Chris Christie…OK
  • John Kasich… .???

    Huckabee – the guy who will support child molestors. Lovely guy. I used to like him too – not much since he took some crazy pills.
