The Republican Debate, Cruz had a great night, Kasich had a good night, Rubio was ok, and Trump was tired and vulgar. Cruz’s summation of what has happened to Detroit under 50 years of failed Democrat policies was excellent. Frank Luntz’s focus group and the audience loved it. Rubio talked about yoga and was suffering from a cold/flu. Rich Lowry has a good piece about the debate here. He described Trump’s performance:
Trump was completely appalling–rude, crude, dishonest, ill-informed, non-sensical, evasive, out of control, and even disturbing. I’m thinking in particular of his repeated assurances that he will bring the military to heel and make it obey unlawful orders. This was Trump at his worst, although past debates have established that outrageousness doesn’t hurt him because for his supporters it’s part of his appeal.
