New Hampshire Republican debate summary: Bullet-point format

The top seven candidates for the Republican nomination for President met Saturday night in New Hampshire just days ahead of the first in the nation primary.

Here I want to summarize my observations of the debate in a simple, bullet-point format, leaving out any fancy prose.

Donald Trump

  • Still authoritarian, “Strongman” who knows how to capitalize on people’s fears
  • Totally lost exchange on eminent domain against Jeb Bush
  • Still uses playground tactics when defending a position that someone disagrees with.
  • Still skimpy on specifics

Marco Rubio

  • Not the brightest bulb on the tree
  • Has Fox News and top neocon supporters scratching their heads
  • Pure politician

Ted Cruz

  • Talked tough all week about Trump, showed lack of grapes in debate
  • Struggles with identity while courting libertarians and mainstream Republicans, position muddled

Ben Carson

  • Was he even there?

Jeb Bush

  • Showed large grapes grappling with a bombastic Trump, blasted him on eminent domain
  • Still a Bush

Chris Christie

John Kasich

  • Able to rattle off years of political experience in Congress and Ohio
  • Moderate
  • May be perfect fit for NH voter
