So this Tuesday night on the Fox Business Network, we had the Fourth Republican Presidential Debate or is it the 7th and 8th I cant’ quite remember what with there actually being two, one a primetime and one a pre-primetime debate each time. Regardless, both of them were very successful and much more substance filled than all of the previous debates combined. Each and every candidate really got into exactly how their policies if elected would help the country and improve the economy and they also really went into the details of their tax reform plans that their campaigns are proposing.
Compared to every other debate including the Democratic debate I actually felt that I learned something about the candidates and what they are for and would do if elected President of the United States. For who actually stood out and did very well, I will stick with just those in the second debate tonight, the prime time one. I actually think that all of them did very well except perhaps Donald Trump. Although I will say that his comments about President Eisenhower where both informative and striking. Like always he just does not offer substance in what he says and puts forward. And in a debate where all the candidates were focused like a laser on substance about their plans and visions his lack of such really stood out and did him no good.
For the others, like I said they all did pretty goo, but the four that I think really stood out was Senator Marco Rubio, Business Woman Carly Fiorina, Senator Ted Cruz, and Ben Carson. Each one of them was precise, on point and knew what they were talking about. But by far the winner was Rubio who was not only knowledgeable but powerful and inspirational in his talking.
Regardless, of how each of the candidates did, once again I have to say it was a magnificent debate and that I learned a lot about each one of them. We need more debates like the ones we had Tuesday night. They are exactly what debates are all about; forums where candidates debate the real issues facing the country with real solutions. This Tuesday night was the first time we got that.
