|A crowded room. Marco Rubio, Rick Perry, Bobby Jindal, Jim Gilmore, George Pataki, Rick Santorum, Lindsey Graham, Carly Fiorina, Mik Huckabee, Ted Cruz, Jeb Bush, Donald Trump, Scott Walker, John Kasich, Ben Carson, Chris Christie and Rand Paul will all meet in Cleveland to see who's going to bring up Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama's name the most.|
The Republicans will gather in Cleveland for a trial run. The city is hosting the 2016 Republican convention and nomination. And it's the first city to host the Republican debates. There will be sanctioned nine debates. The chief Reince Priebus was pissed that they've held 20 debates and it created a mess. The fewer the better, right!
NOPE. It's a mess. Some of the candidates are crying foul. The network that claims that President Barack Obama gives free phones to people in Cleveland will host a forum and then the big debate.
The candidates are complaining that the network is looking for ratings rather than advocating candidate policies.
Matter of fact, the debate could generate up 20 million viewers through the network, radio, social media and print. One reason is the biggest target in the room. That target is a real estate and media mogul.
Here's the rundown. The junior league and the majors.
The junior league has candidates who are considered second tier. Joining the list of second tier is the pouting mouth former Texas governor Oops. Rick "Oops" Perry didn't make the cut. Perry, Bobby Jindal, Carly Fiorina, Lindsey Graham, Rick Santorum, George Pataki and Jim Gilmore will do the minor league debate.
It will be held today at 5pm.
The big league who are considered the top tier. Joining the list of top tier are Marco Rubio, Mike Huckabee, Ted Cruz, Ben Carson, John Kaisch, Rand Paul, Chris Christie, Scott Walker, Jeb Bush, and Donald Trump.
Of the latter, some were contributors to the network.
Kasich was a host of Heartland. Left the network to successfully become governor of Ohio. Host of the Republican debate and convention.
Huckabee was a host of Huckabee. Left the network to run again.
Santorum was a contributor to the network. Left the network to run in 2012 and 2016.
Carson was a contributor to the network. Left the network to run.
Of the latter besides Kaisch, some are currently governors. Christie, Walker, Jindal, and Kasich are term limited and they won reelection handily despite being extremely controversial lawmakers.
Of the latter besides Huckabee and Santorum, some are perennial candidates running. Perry, Gilmore, Fiorina, Huckabee and Santorum have tried to run for higher office. Perry successfully won three terms as governor of Texas but failed at winning the nomination. Gilmore won a term as governor but failed in winning the nomination for president and nomination for senator. Santorum won as congressman and senator but failed in winning the nomination for president. Huckabee won two terms as a governor but failed in winning the nomination for president. Fiorina is a failed nominee for the senate.
|It could be the most watched debate ever.|
Some are considered the establishment. Bush, Kaisch, Graham, Gilmore, Pataki and Christie are the establishment.
Some are the new generation. Jindal, Fiorina, Carson, Cruz, Rubio, Paul and Walker are the new generation of conservative politicos according to the agitators.
Some are of the religious right. Jindal, Huckabee, Santorum, and Carson are extremely religious.
Of the latter, Donald Trump is the only one who doesn't want to practice. He believes that being told what to say and being political correct will be disastrous. The Republicans will zoom in on him because of accusations of being a plant.
Republicans will meet at the Quiken Loans Arena for the debate and the Republican nomination.
What will be the topics they'll discuss. Okay get a glass and start drinking because obviously there will be mentions of policies, name-drops, fear tactics, and baseless lies. If you look at the list of what I believe will be discussed given that the network that's hosting the debate, you clearly know what's coming up.
THE US-MEXICO BORDER
THE IRANIAN NUCLEAR DEAL
LIBERAL MEDIA ACCUSATIONS
KEYSTONE XL PIPELINE
I would be surprised if this comes up.
PAID FAMILY LEAVE
GRAND JURY DECISIONS
POACHING ENDANGERED ANIMALS
BLACK LIVES MATTER
WORK ACROSS THE AISLE
OBESITY IN CHILDREN
SEXUALLY TRANSMITTED DISEASES
LEGALIZATION OF MARIJUANA
The debate is on. Are you watching it?
