The GOP debate Thursday night promises to be a drama and indeed fun-filled collision of 16 very diverse candidates over two different debates. Of course many eyes will be on Donald Trump and Jeb Bush the leader in fundraising, but Scott Walker, Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio are also all widely regarded as top tier contenders and there isn’t a bad candidate in the bunch.
The Fox News channel hosts will have their hands full keeping the many candidates within their allotted times and the questions precise and resistant to filibuster, but the debate signals the beginning of the end of the Obama era which has been wildly destructive. For that reason alone, the rising curtain at the debate ought to be cheered.
I get to ask questions at debates next month and in December and then March, and I look forward to helping GOP primary voters decide who is best positioned to face Hillary in 2016 while also helping set the issues that the general election in 2016 ought to revolve around—especially national security and the calamitous agreement with Iran.[soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/217755852″ params=”color=ff5500&auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false” width=”100%” height=”166″ iframe=”true” /]
