Good God it’s time for yet another GOP debate and of course another Lions of Liberty Live Blog! This will be the second Randless debate, but the first since he dropped out of the race for the GOP nomination. Although we’ve had our disagreements with Rand along the way, his absence increases the likelihood that viewers are probably in store for a debate lacking substantial rational discussion on any topic.
Donald Trump returns to the debate stage after his one debate hiatus in Iowa. With his return, the carnival atmosphere and personal character attacks are likely to return as well. But fear not lovers of liberty, we will guide you through this train wreck of debate with another live blog! We’ll be starting tonight at 8pm EST. Remember, there is no undercard debate. Tonight the main show is the only show in town. And if you dare, play along with our GOP Debate Drinking Game!
On the plus side, the debate scheduled to end at 11… I’m going to need more alcohol
And Lindsey and McCain auditioning to be Statler and Waldorf in the next muppets movie
Ben can’t figure out to walk to the podium. But he’ll be a great president!
This is the best opening of a debate I’ve ever seen.
I’m more worried about the guy who promised to make sand glow having his finger on the nuke button than Donald
Ben reading off index cards right from the get go. Very inspiring
Ok, enough of this issue.
I’m going to have to rewind and hear Rubio’s “accomplishments” again
Whoa getting a little testy! I like it
When will he talk about Ohio already?
Have to always add fresh ingredients to the fear-mongering stew
Kasich sounds reasonable on immigration. Don’t know about “finish the border” business. Sounds like BUILD A WALL
Sounds like a perfect “stimulus” project.
Christie not letting up on Rubio tonight
Trump may have to refine his health care plan, with some actual details, at some point
Unfortunately for Rand, his enthusiastic support at the last debate mattered nothing
Donald, big difference between eminent domain for “public” use v. private use (like, say, building a bigger parking lot for a casino)
Damnit, is JEB reading our feed right now
Donald calling out the crowd right now! This is great
Please tell me what conservative means Marco
I don’t think Christie’s “I’m an executive” argument is going to work. Just a hunch
C’mon John, keep touting Ohio. Get everyone to move here and my property value will skyrocket
Notice how the candidates are now saying “and Bernie” after Hillary?
I told you to stop talking to that drunk homeless guy at the corner store
Remember when Ben Carson was in the debate?
And Cruz has been strangely quiet. Lot of Christie screen time though. Not a pleasant alternative
We need 1100 bombs a day to target oil refineries? I’m guessing his plans might cause a little collateral damage
OR, just hear me out, MAYBE don’t have troops in so many different countries???
Trump does know banking…and bankruptcy. HEYO
But does he know their capitals?
Make no mistake, Cruz only stands for LIMITED torture
Cruz’s secretary of defense, Jack Bauer
Worse than water boarding, please be more specific Donald. I love the idea of no due process plus torture
Where does one buy a seatbelt John?
“Pro-life” except for vowing to vigorously enforce the federal mj laws and ruin those peoples lives, right Chris
Glad the Donald pointed out Hillary should be in jail
Drink enough of maybe you’ll think the Steelers are playing tomorrow
As Rand goes, so does the chance for criminal justice reform
Well Kasich was like diet caffeine free Rand on criminal justice reform
Who’s ready to say there won’t be a goddamn draft? not Marco
JEB cornering the market on people wrongfully declared dead by the VA. I smell surge!
I think Kasich doing ok. Might have to look more into this “Ohio” he keeps bringing up
How about they ask whats going to take longer, this debate or the super bowl
Larry David hosting SNL tonight. I hope he does an hour and a half as Bernie
Crowd may have booed, but Donald cracked Kasich up.
And it’s over!!!!
Till tomorrow my friend
