The First 2016 Presidential Debate

By Patrick Van Roy On August 5th, 2015

The first debate took place with very little fan fare. If you are a wonk as most of us are it was worth watching.

Now I know very few of you will sit through the 2 1/2 hours of this Debate, those who do will enjoy it.

Here are some Highlight’s John Kasich, Lindsey Graham, George Pataki, Rand Paul, Rick Perry, Santorum, Chris Christie, Ben Carson, Bobby Jindal, Scott Walker, Jeb Bush, Carly Fiorina, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio.

That’s the best I can do breaking it down so you could pull the pieces you may want to see.

    Many thanks for the offer, but sitting through two and a half hours of industrial scale lying would just ruin my holiday 😉

  2. I’m with Harri on this one, Troll.

    Wouldn’t it be easier on everyone if, every four years, the big corporations in the US just publicly announced who they were funding for president in the coming term, rather than have this long, drawn-out charade, which is only designed to give the American people the feeling that their vote counts? 😉

  3. Remind me to do anything else than watch this.

    The election is fall 2016.

  4. I think we should at least give Troll credit for breaking down the debate into the parts spoken by each candidate to help anyone with particular preferences.

  5. If federal marshalls walk on to the stage to drag Cruz, Trump, Rubio, and Christie by the scruff of the neck to the closest federal penitentiary, then I promise to watch.

  6. Absolutely, Colm. Everyone here knows, I would imagine, that this topic is a particular favourite of Troll’s, yet even he acknowledges that at 2 1/2 hours, it may not be everyone’s cup of tea – and he is correct 😉

  7. The ” debate ” among the major contenders is from 9pm – 1030 pm Eastern time.

    There’s another one among the unknowns that will be on at 5pm, but that is not the main event.

  8. You see to some of us what people say and how they say it is actually important.

    It’s like so many people are shocked by Obamas actions as President. Those are the asses. Obama has been very successful implementing exactly what he said he was going to do.

    Fundamentally Change the Nation and how it works, and he has succeeded in restructuring how laws are made and Justice is dealt out.

  9. I was at a loose end this evening, with just the prospect of washing my hair for fun. Now there’s hours of GOP drones talking to contemplate. Well that’s my mind made up.

    Where’s the Head n Shoulders …

  10. Superior alternatives to watching the ” debate ” taking place a mind shattering 15 months before the election

    Nighttime bike ride on a congested road

    Getting drunk in a dive bar with friends

    Reading an Ayn Rand book and trying to make sense of it

    Riding the subway to East New York to see if its as safe as people say

    Sampling the kimchi at a Korean karaoke bar

  11. That reminds me, I have to paint one of the kid’s bedrooms.

  12. Phantom bitches that because so many highly qualified people are running on the Republican ticket the sorting is going to take a year an a half.

    Notice he is not “for” anyone, but despises the Republican frontrunners. So what does that leave as his choices?

    A proud communist in Sanders and a woman Felon.

    Which you gonna pick Phantom? The Felon or the Commie?

    Oh I know…. Ralp Nader….lmao

  13. I may do a write in ballot for myself.

  14. well at least then you might know something more about your choice than what you’ve read in the Times.

  15. I may sell my vote to the highest bidder, Ted Cruz and Jeb Bush style.

  16. yeah because all politicians are puppets of their donors and only republicans have donors Hillary doesn’t.

    So it’s Ralph Nader actually a better pick for you would be Pat Paulsen

  17. Hillary should be dragged by the hair and put in the same prison cell as Ted Cruz.

  18. Oh for Gods sake

    Ben Carson wasn’t being truthful when he said the person he’d most like to share a drink with is Jesus clearly has not been inside the Republican presidential hopeful’s home.

    Photos taken inside the pediatric surgeon’s residence in Upperco, Md., in November 2014 reveal he possessed a rendering of himself seated next to a smiling Jesus Christ.

    Good job Eagles

  19. any victory against Dallas is a reason to celebrate
