Drink THE FIRST TIME:

1. Donald Trump mentions his wealth, or how smart he is.

2. A candidate mentions Benghazi

3. A candidate says, "This president..."

4. A candidate whines about not getting called on enough.

5. Someone promises to "take America back."

6. Trump interrupts someone by saying, "Excuse me, let me answer that…"

7. Anyone mentions Hitler, Nazis or Neville Chamberlain. Includes related imagery, e.g. "ovens."

8. The crowd cheers a racist/bigoted statement by a candidate.

9. A candidate mentions his poor/hardscrabble upbringing, or a parent who "worked every day of his life."

10. A candidate talks about "stopping Hillary Clinton."

11. Anyone warns the U.S. is becoming Greece.

12. Trump refers to himself in the third person.

13. Anyone invokes St. Ronald Reagan.

Drink EVERY time a candidate:

14. Claims a positive relationship with a minority. Also known as the, "Some of my best friends are…" rule.

15. Tries to speak Spanish

16. Tries to warm up to the Ohio crowd with an awkward LeBron shout-out.

Drink EVERY TIME you hear the word(s):

17. "I'm not a scientist."

18. "You can keep your doctor."

19. "ACORN."

20. "The war on Christians."

21. "Thug."

22. "Right here in Ohio."

23. "Culture of dependency."

TAKE A SHOT OF JAGER AT ANY MENTION OF:

24. "Kenya."

25. "All Lives Matter."

I have to say, so far Ben Carson has been the most impressive. I wish they would give him more time. I just don't think the core Republican voters would ever consider him.

edit

it's like they are hoping the honor system should stop it

I thought Chris Christie came off quite well.

Trump was his usual self. I give him credit for not trying to play Mr. Nice Guy and sucking up. He held to his beliefs. He was the only one who would not go along with supporting the GOP nominee. Not sure all of the others truly would, but they did the "politically correct thing" and wouldn't admit it. Trump did come off as grumpy, sarcastic, and negative. Focus group by Frank Luntz seemed to back this up.

Huckabee - Articulate & wonderful with words but a 100% ideologue. I find his views a real turn off.

Jeb Bush - Needed to do more & put in a lackluster performance for someone considered near the top at this stage. He'll have to do more moving forward, or he'll be toast.

The entire group just far off the cliff on social issues.

The winner last night - Megyn Kelly looked oh so fine.

Except substance. I don't think more than three questions were answered as asked instead we got a constant changing of the subject into resume answers explaining their records about everything but what they were being asked. I wasn't surprised at all by FOX News attacking of Trump to try to push him out of the way. I was surprised that he was considered the winner by so many Republicans after he showed once again that Trump is all about Trump and doesn't give a crap about the Republican party. Don't nominate me and I might jump ship and scuttle Republican's chances in the general election. He is a buffoon. The only other interesting moment was the tiff between Christie and Paul but after that I thought is was a snore fest. Not nearly as entertaining as it could have been if the moderators would have pressed some of the other candidates besides Trump who was obviously FOX's target. They didn't ask any tough or as simple Sarah Palin would call gotcha questions to anyone other than Trump who they along with most main stream Republicans want out of the race even with his threat to run as an Independent.

Two impressions:

1. Trump's arrogant flaunting of the fact that he has given money "to every candidate up here" (sans Huckabee) is a textbook illustration of what is wrong with our political/election system. Rich guys like Trump can grease the wheels of the candidates of both (or however many) parties - insuring that those elected are beholden to them. This is nothing short of political power for sale.

2. Whatever you (or I) think of FOX - I'd like to (and hope to) see the Democratic candidates in a very similar forum with very similar questions thrown at them at the same velocity. The panel (especially Megyn Kelly) were almost vicious - sometimes vindictive (Kelly towards Trump - the Rosie O'Donell questions). No slow, underhanded lobs in this debate (I only watched the first hour).

I'm sure this is standard operating procedure for Trump. in negotiations you want to play one side against the other to get the best deal. he is probably ruthless doing this.

"if you won't give me what I want, i'll find someone who will and you will never work in this town again. I will destroy you."

Good post & agree with your points.

Only thing I'll add is that re: point 1 - There are givers & takers for the transaction for big $$$$$$$. You pointed out that most on the stage have taken money form Trump & many other fat cats. In my opinion the other candidates are no better then Trump, as they have had their palms greased. How many turned down Trump's "contributions"? Unfortunately it's baked into the system, and the same politicians who criticize it are the first in line to be bought. They all are part of the problem.

I thought it was horrible. All the questions were designed to produce gaffes rather than enlighten the public on the views positions and temperments of the candidates. We would be better off just having each candidate sit down with a serious interviewer for 20 minutes and nothing else. I hate candidates "debates".

That's not true. They asked difficult unfair questions to everybody.

Wow, I thought those were anything but softball questions. Like when they hit Jeb with the Planned Parenthood donation question.

I thought the questions were pretty tough and antagonistic. It seemed like the moderators had at least one true gripe with each candidate, and seized the opportunity to attack them. There were a few softballs, but for the most part, I thought they were tough. Sometimes clownish, but tough.

I'd say that Ben Carson easily won the debate. Not really a close second in my opinion. I really like the guy. But I'm still not sure if he would make a good President. I really like the toned-down Ben Carson, but I'm afraid that as soon as they let the man speak, he might go overboard like he did early on. I prefer humility in a leader, and I don't think he has much of that. With that being said, he seemed to be the most intelligent one there, and had the best responses, IMO.

There is no drug to my knowledge that can produce Donald Trump's ego, arrogance and obnoxiousness. If they ever figure out a way to bottle or powder those qualities, then I'll agree that we certainly have a severe drug problem.in this country

Maybe what needs to be bottled is HONESTY......Unscripted, unrehearsed HONEST STRAIGHT TALK. At least with Trump you KNOW what you're getting up front, he's not out to fool anybody (like Mr. Post Partisan Unifier, for example.)

You can make your decision whether you agree with him or not secure in the knowledge that your decision was based on a true reading. Which approach would you favor? I'll take Trump's every day of the week.

I respect straight fowardness and honesty. I try my best to be an honest and straight forward person myself. As such, I can tell you that being honest is not always your best policy in the sense that in being honest - people do know and understand exactly what kind of a person you are. They know if they like you or not.
Such is the case with Mr. Trump. Herald his honesty all you want - but what comes across is an honest yet vindictive, mean spirited racist/sexist. A lot of folks who vote are willing to pass on someone like this. Honestly.

This might be a first, but I tend to agree with most of what alloak posted. I also agree wih some of Rusty's posts, as Rusty makes accurate observations on Trump.

I'd never vote for Trump, but after listening to several speeches and watching the debate, I've come around a bit on him and will give him kudos for sticking to his guns in spite of what some might want him to say. Yes, he's abrasive and politically not correct, but he does make some good points whether some like his angles or not. I'd much rather have someone who speaks his mind than someone who says all the right things. Keep in mind that many of the other 16 GOP candidates are part of & have perpetuated some of the problems we face today. Most are politicians, & some are career politicians.

How many of those who didn't raise their hand on the first question might shy away from supporting the eventual GOP candidate? It's one thing to not support the nominee & a completely different thing to run as an independent. None of the other 9 on stage would have the balls to not admit that they might not support the nominee. I give it to Trump as he didn't think twice.

The GOP has a real issue with Trump, and I'm not sure if they've figured out how to deal with him. Erick Erickson's decision to drop Trump from the RedState Gathering in Atlanta in response to Trump's statements about Megyn Kelly is chicken$shit. What does that tell you about Erickson? Megyn is a big girl & can handle herself with Trump, or she can have FOX deal with Mr. Trump. However that also becomes a problem because he brings ratings, & he's also leading the GOP polls as we speak. It's a real quandary for FOX.

So now the GOP types are going to start using filters & slap hands for bad behavior? I wonder if actions like this will backfire? Voters are already tired of Washington politicians - both sides of the aisle. There's an outcry for someone different, and many see Trump as that guy. Is he the guy? I don't think so, but it is angle the GOP hadn't planned for and figured out exactly what to do with Trump. He has the ability in more than one way to do serious damage to the GOP. It's an interesting set of dynamics to sit back and observe - Trump & the GOP.

Trump is nothing but a media whore and a bully. He makes statements about how he is going to fix things with no details on how he will deliver. He is going to replace ACA with something way better? I mean come really "way better"?

he claims he got his intelligence about a Mexican Governments conspiracy to send their criminals to the U.S. from talking to border guards? Border guards?

He wants to build a wall along a 1,951 mile border with Mexico to keep out the illegals when the illegal immigration is actually declining? First of all does anyone think this is even feasible and secondly at what cost to build and maintain such a wall? How much will it cost to guard a 2000 mile wall?

I find it scary that anyone applauds this guy or the ignorant statements he makes to the press on a regular bases and believes he could actually run this country.

I am a die-hard Democrat but there were much more qualified GOP candidates in that debate the other night then that buffoon.

No question about it, but at least there is no question about where Trump is coming from and the voter can make his decision accordingly. He's such an abrupt departure from most politicians, who may secretly harbor such feelings and you don't even know it. They have been busy walking a tightrope with scripted comments meant to offend nobody, and saying the "right things" with no intention of ever following through on anything.

In short, Trump probably wouldn't be accused of lying his way into office. IMO that's far worse than what Trump is doing.

OMG - I'm agreeing with alloak a second time in two days.

There is plenty to hold against Trump, the entertainer. But he is effective in what he's saying & doing. He's tapping into a disgusted portion of the electorate much more so than Jeb, Rand, Walker, etc. I'm certainly listening to him as much as most "real politicians".

I'm just sitting back & enjoying the quagmire he brings to the GOP and would much rather listen to him than the rest of the stiffs on stage who say all the right things. It was so obvious the staged lines that were zinged the other night were scripted, rehearsed, and delivered on time by the other 9 (politicians). I have to thing Trump's lines were impromptu, as I find it hard to believe he'd rehearse the stuff that comes out of his mouth - the good, the bad, and the trashy.

Would I vote for Trump - not in this lifetime or any lifetime. I'm more interested in watching his impact and the reaction to him. What's the GOP going to do next with him or about him? How do they walk the tightrope? Soon it'll probably have an endpoint, but for now enjoy the entertainment value and squirming it presents. It's a good case study.
