What have been the big applause lines in these debates? Well, a statement that the governor of Texas is responsible for killing 234 people on death row. Or that we favor torture. Or that were creating a fence on the Mexican border that electrocutes people when they try to cross it. Or when people show up at the emergency room at hospitals and theyre not insured dont treat them. And that, I mean these are the big applause lines, people just hoop and holler when they hear all that. Instead of distancing himself from the republican party he claims to be embarrassed by, why doesn't Danforth start by calling out the extremists republicans in our own home state like Martin? Or Akin, who thinks that, "At the heart of Liberalism is a hatred for God." Senator Danforth Embarrassed by Own Republican Party He forgot, "Let him die". We are just looking at the Republican Party. What they are and what they truly believe. Even too extreme for someone like JD. I suspect "no".
