GOP candidates tangle with each other, and moderators, at feisty 3rd debate

by
October 29, 2015

Few could avoid the political crossfire Wednesday night at the third Republican presidential primary debate, where tensions flared among several candidates on stage – though perhaps the biggest clashes came between the candidates and the moderators.

This time, Donald Trump was hardly the only contender mixing it up on stage.

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush went after fellow Floridian Marco Rubio early on for missing votes in the Senate. Ohio Gov. John Kasich, who has struggled in the polls, sharply criticized the race’s front-runners as unready and shopping “fantasy” policies to voters.

Yet a common target was the CNBC moderators themselves.

    Senator Cruz really called them out for their outrageous behavior and it was great to see the GOP team acting like the Musketeers – one for all and all for one, against the assault of the moderators. Cruz did well to contrast the differences with the way they handled the contenders of the DNC debate as compared to how they relentlessly assaulted the Republican candidates for the presidency in 2016 and in my opinion nominating Cruz for the presidency would result in the rescuing of the republic!

    I loved Rubio and Cruz bashing the useful idiots pretending to be moderators!!!

    When the republican party let Trump turn the campaign into a reality TV show they got this useless crap. Don’t blame the networks, they didn’t make this mess they are just going with the flow. Trump decided that a three hour show was to long so they made it two hours, cutting every ones time by a third but giving more entertaining TV viewing. Ted blamed liberal moderators for the problem but Fox had the same problem and I don’t think you would call them liberal. The american people don’t want to know facts, they just want to be entertained.

    It was fairly obvious that if the moderator did not get the answer or reaction they wanted from the person they threw a question at, they tried to cut the person off and go on to another candidate. The news reporting of this country has hit an all time low with not only stupid remarks, stupid subject areas, stupid questions, and stupid reactions by the media. The news folks like Walter Cronkite and others of his era have distinguished themselves and should be the quality of journalism to strive for, not the Rupert Merdock mud slinging, bias, BS that the liberal make up the news on the fly or planning to influence the news types of today’s reporting.

    Kasich thinks the Republicans want business as usual but has yet to learn that their ideas have left the building and are looking for a new home. That is why his numbers a lagging but he thinks he can fool the public with figures about how he fixed the economy in Ohio. He has yet to figure out it is because of Ohio that the whole nation is suffering because it was ultimately his State that resulted in the re-election of Obama. And yes the American people are hurting, even the liberals are hurting but they are so bent on winning that they will never open their eyes to that fact.

    The truth be told and yes the conservatives want the truth to be told because the relish the truth where the liberals want to follow someone’s opinion and so they latch on to opinion. The world has been full of opinions but these opinions never last. Hitler, Mao, Castro, Obama, Reid, Lenin, Stalin, they all had opinions but those opinions do not last.

    Cruz won the debate because he is the man who exposed the moderators for their shenanigans and changed the whole debate. But the inept moderator tried to turn the table again with little results but it did not work. It only continued to backfire on him.

    It’s amazing that all the comments here (so far) are about CNBC and the media. Don’t any of you have anything to say about the candidates, or are all of them so pathetically boring and clueless that the only thing to talk about is the media?

    • paulrph1

      You have still not seen the crux of the debate. It was about the way the candidates were exposed to ludicrous question from a liberal press. That is not the way it was supposed to be but is the way the tone was set by the moderators. Yes, the whole debate was a sham and should be exposed for the sham that it was. Perhaps, then a legitimate debate can take place. It does no good for the candidates to play into the hands of the ludicrous moderators. The GOP has lost many of the last debates because of exactly that. And that too is time for a change.

  • Luke

    I just loved it when the candidates started turning the tables on the liberal moderators whose biased toward conservative Americans is obvious..

    • The Redhawk

      Their Timing and methods were sUPERB and the TOOLS of the DNC PAC aka MSM @cnbc were UNDRESSED AS UNINFORMED LYING IDIOTS!

      • Luke

        LOL, it has been said that the liberal moderators didn’t study the questions to be asked or verified the uneducated opinions of unknown sources because they believed they were smarter than the Rep candidates.
        I guess now that has been proven to be a myth and belief in their own little weak PC minds..

        • victoriadelacy

          Indeed, Senator Cruz is a graduate of ivy league Harvard and very well versed in the art of debate! They have met their match in that excellent candidate who I hope will win the Presidency upon election day next year.
