I'm watching the debate livestream on CNN. So far, Trump has kicked ¡Yeb!in the posterior. The moderators are actually not horribly rotten. Yet.
Fiorina is talking tough, talking sense, and getting lots of applause. Poor Ben. I love him, but he's too soft-spoken and can't match the anger the other candidates are generating.
Cruz: carpet bomb the bastids! Make the sand glow!
Jeebus, Rubio and Cruz are in a hair-pulling cat fight. Meow!
¡Yeb! is smirk-y and Trump is petulant. They sound like schoolgirls. Slap slap slap.
OMG, Fiorina just played the Woman card. *groan*
The "woman card" has merit...regardless of who says it. She's right in many ways IMO.
I must laugh at the posted image(s)...that first one reminds me of my struggles with Chopin, Hayden, Bach and sundry others were a youngster...never got the feel or touch for it, but that remark in the bars says what I am sure my instructor thought. Still can read music but can't play a whit. I have "mumble fingers" I guess. Gave my old piano to my daughter, who reads music and can play by ear as well...then bought her a baby grand. She's learning "Ludovico Einaudi" as we speak...beautiful music but beyond my fingers....especially "Una Mattina."
If we're lucky the Trump phenomenon will make the media think twice about having debates next time around. I have always thought them to be over-rated and a waste of time.
I fell asleep watching it. I have no idea how it turned out. It was really long, and they kept asking the same basic questions.
I guess if they kept asking the same question they were asking the questions of everybody. I can see that, but I think they should do a subject at a time and let everyone discuss their views.
RadioMattM ... agreed...media run "debates" could be useful if run like real debate...such as the ones I experienced in "seminar" style classes in college. No provocation, just address the subject, state your case, and let the next guy do the same. The "listening" part is the best, rather than being preoccupied by thoughts of what YOU want to say next.
I enjoyed the debate, I thought CNN did a good job and asked fair questions. I was able to get a better feel for several of the candidates although I will be glad when a half dozen or so with no chance to gain the nomination drop out.I think the reaction to the CNBC fiasco woke up a lot of potential debate moderators. It wasn't only the candidates who loathed how they handled the debate, it was the audience and MILLIONS of viewers. I personally like to see the candidates react to one another and how they handle themselves under pressure so I'm always up for a debate :-) (I myself am a wallflower and would probably faint if I had to speak before more than 2 people).
Sorry lady red, I don't read music or play an instrument so your entire post went completely over my head LOL! I'll take your word about them being hilarious. :D
My sister does read music, and is the church choir director. She laughed a lot. I got a couple of them
I play the piano and guitar (used to) so can read music somewhat and got MOST of them but not all. I have done #12 many times though, lol.These are great, I'm sending them to my little sister, she'll love them. Thanks for the funnies, lady red!
