August 6th Republican Primary Debate

Postby Kane » Sat Aug 01, 2015 1:33 pm

Just to get a jump start on this mofo (The debate will air on Thursday, August 6th) I'd like to open a forum where we might discuss the debate and its setup.

Does anybody have any qualms with the way in which the ten debaters are being selected? By the top ten polling candidates at the time? On top of that, who do you think will come out of the debate victorious? Will there be a fatality?

I predict one Donald Trump to rise further in the polls following this debate. It will be...amazing. I think the base is totally removed from the motivations of the establishment now.

Threads like these make me so embarrassed that you were #1 on several Philly's Top 5 lists.

Single issue parties don't tend to get very far in our system. They are probably getting the most mileage by latching onto the GOP.

Trump *may* fare well in this initial debate, although I believe his lack on knowledge and solutions on certain issues will be evident. However, as these debates progress, Trump will be increasingly more revealed as a vapid candidate.

Everyone knows Trump is vapid man. NO ONE CARES. They love his attitude, the fact that he tweets drug lords "ill kick your ass" and calls senators losers. Believe it or not, Donald Trump is the walking embodiment of what 35% of this country thinks America should be. He won't have any substance in the debate and he will crush those other losers on the stage because Trump is the only one on there who will speak his mind instead of his canned answers. The rest of you are foolish. Look at Donald Trump and then tell me he won't be at an extreme advantage in an environment intended to foster conflict, disagreement, and argument. The only people who will reveal their lack of knowledge are the other 9 debaters, when they inevitably end up saying stupider and stupider shit in order to try to out swagger Trump.
