A quick and dirty breakdown of the Fox debate

by John Hawkins | January 28, 2016 12:01 am

If you’re a Cruz supporter, you probably didn’t love the debate because the moderators asked an inordinate number of questions that were designed to get the other candidates to attack Ted Cruz. If you’re a fan of the candidates other than Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz, you’re probably a little annoyed that they kept feeding Marco and Cruz red meat questions while your candidate kept getting questions about more trivial topics. There were also some semi-annoying Youtube questions, but otherwise they did okay.

Here’s how it broke down.

7) Jeb’s considerably better than he was in the early debates, but he’s still at the back of the field.

That may be the first time Jeb ever got the best of someone on an exchange and it was at Marco’s expense on immigration #GOPDebate[2]

Puerto Rico is bankrupt. Jeb wants to make them a state. Jeb is obviously an idiot. #GOPDebate[2]

I’ll be very happy if I go my whole life and never have to hear Jeb Bush call Donald Trump a “little teddy bear” again. #GOPDebate[2]

6) Kasich was good…for Kasich.

Kasich powerful on using reforms to help the mentally ill. This is a vital human issue. Great answer

— Newt Gingrich (@newtgingrich) January 29, 2016[6]

5) Carson had more energy that normal and, as per usual, he had his moments.

“If you have 10 people coming to your house and one of them is a terrorist, you’re going to keep them all out.” — Ben Carson #GOPDebate[2]

Immigrants welcome if they want to come to our country and accept our lifestyle, if not, they’re to stay where they are. – Carson #GOPDebate[2]

4) Rand was better than normal, although still a bit churlish. He was helped a lot by a young, rabid cheering section.

Rubio, if I of all people think you’re too angry, you’re too angry. Mix in a couple other emotions every once in a while #GOPDebate[2]

Rubio campaign manager 1 minute before #GOPDebate[2]: Chug this Monster & make sure you say you love Jesus 84 times; evangelicals are watching.

3) Marco is generally good, but he seems a little angry these days. He had some good lines, but the beating he took over amnesty was just unbelievable.

That immigration question was a Misery style sledgehammer to both of Rubio’s feet and he had no good response. #GOPDebate[2] #brutal[13]

Rubio gets some laughs from the crowd. https://t.co/eSSvMCS8P0[15]

#GOPDebate[2] Rubio: “One of Hillary Clinton’s first acts as president could very well be to pardon herself.”

2) Christie is consistently good in these debates and it never seems to help him.

Great Christie line” the days of the Clintons in public housing are over”

— Newt Gingrich (@newtgingrich) January 29, 2016[18]

1) Cruz was a little weak at the start and he had a joke that fell flat, but he brutalized Rubio on amnesty and successfully fended off a stageful of people trying to shiv him.

Total beatdown…. https://t.co/1iqGQ8zY4s[19]
