Are you ready for Thursday night? The first GOP debates will be on Fox News. The TOP 10 contenders in an average of national polls will be in a debate beginning at 8:50pm. The remaining 7 contenders will debate earlier beginning at 5:00pm.
Since The Donald is apt to dominate the Top 10 debate, the earlier 5:00 debate could actually be more informative. It “may” include Governor Rick Perry, Governor Bobby Jindal and Carly Fiorina … all three are strong candidates.
The Top 10 group will be the most fun as we wait to see whether Trump throws grenades at other candidates, or behaves as a Presidential candidate should. I’ve heard there are “drinking games” being planned for whenever Trump says he’s rich. Whether he actually gets into the specifics of his plans – versus just one-liners – we’ll have to wait and see.
I’ll be listening for their positions are three issues:
- Uphold The Constitution (Supreme Court appointees, repeal Obama’s illegal EO’s, religious freedom, 1st and 2nd Amendments, State’s rights)
- National Security (Iran nuke deal, fighting ISIS, border security, deportations)
- Economy (repeal ObamaCare, income tax reduction, regulations that deter businesses, reduce size of government & freebies)
What I DON’T WANT to hear are personal attacks by Trump aimed at others on the stage. I’m picking someone with the stature to be a President, not a reality show star!
