Gallup: Top 11 Questions the People Would Ask

The well anticipated debate is tonight. Often the debates focus on questions that we the people are not asking. I find most of these questions intriguing and on point. A couple do not belong in a federal debate but on the state stage, for instance education is not a question for the President. The low confidence goes away with accomplishment. I am more concerned with Iran, the military and the Russo-Chinese axis. Gallup had this take on the questions the people would like asked. If the American people were running the Republican debate Thursday night, here are the questions they would ask the candidates -- based on our latest assessment of what the people say are the most important problems facing the country today. No gotcha questions or efforts to stump the candidates or push them off their talking points, just sincere questions from the people to help them understand how these Read more

The 10 are revealed

In the new BattleStar Galactica, we waited almost 4 years to discover the final 5. We discovered the first 10 today for the Fox Debate. Fox News has announced the line-up for the prime-time Republican presidential debate this Thursday, and here's who qualified: Real estate magnate Donald Trump; former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush; Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker; former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee; retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson; Texas Sen. Ted Cruz; Florida Sen. Marco Rubio; Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul; New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie; and Ohio Gov. John Kasich. The roster of 10 candidates was determined based on an average of the five most recent national polls. Trump as expected made the cut, securing the top slot. Right behind him were Bush and Walker, who each have posted strong numbers in recent surveys. The drama, rather, was at the edge of the top 10. Christie and Kasich, who were Read more

Trump Enters Firestorm with Counter Attack on McCain

I disagree with Senator John McCain and his attacks on those with whom he disagrees. Paul supporters are crazies. Rand Paul is endangering Americans by standing up for liberty. 15,000 people who came to a Trump Rally in Phoenix are crazies. He called Fox News "schizophrenic" on immigration. He is waging an all out war against the "negative" force of the Tea Party. His Superpac spent $300,000 to run allies in party races and displace precinct committee people who supported his censor by the state party. He is wrong. Mr. Donald Trump's off hand insult against Senator McCain however was insulting to those who served in harm's way by one who never served. Trump is in a catch 22. He is afraid to apologize because he thinks it will make him look weak. He needs to find a way to walk back the remarks in a way that is consistent with his support of the troops and veterans. How do you Read more
