    The New Hampshire Primary results should spell the beginning of “the end” for Marco Rubio's bid for the nomination.

    Marco Rubio was clearly the biggest loser of last night's debate.

    Rubio trails Trump and Cruz in most polls at 3rd and 4th place. If the media continue to hold their breath for Rubio, they'll turn blue. It's not happening. Time to face reality.

    The new numbers reflect a downward spiral for Rubio after last night's disastrous performance. The New Hampshire debate proved who was capable of tough questions and exposed who wasn't.

    Trump continues to gain ground after New Hampshire polls reported Trump with a whopping 65%...That's pure gold for Trump.

    Now for the highlights of last night's debate:

    John Kasich and Chris Christie delivered their best performances last night. Kasich was brilliant and Christie showed himself to be sharp, concise and determined to set the record straight on Rubio. He received impressive feedback after his performance. Both Governors should expect a hefty boost at the Primary.

    Jeb Bush failed in his attempt to portray Donald Trump as someone who had built his empire off of eminent domain. Trump pointed out that it would be impossible to build roads, bridges or the Keystone pipeline without eminent domain. Trump nailed it in his explanation of why eminent domain is an absolute necessity.

    Jeb Bush refused to listen and resorted to another example by using a personal attack against the GOP front runner. Trump told him to be quiet.

    The audience booed and Trump quickly pointed out that the audience was not his but rather comprised of donors and special interest groups that were out of touch with the American people. These were the people who were given the tickets, Trump said. Not afraid to call a spade a spade, it was a major victory for Donald Trump. He stood his ground while other candidates crumbled and lost their own.

    Marco Rubio broke out into a cold sweat as Chris Christie pummeled him about rehearsed speeches, never being held accountable for his actions and authoring the pro-immigration legislation he was attempting to distance himself from…

    Rubio skipped like a broken record repeating the same message again and again, “We are not facing a president that does not know what he's doing…” It was a surreal moment and the crowd wasn't amused.

    Christie drove home the truth that Rubio refused to admit that he was the “author of that legislation.” Marco Rubio was the author of the biggest mass immigration bill ever introduced and last night he was unable to explain why he ran from his own legislation.

    The freshman Florida Senator does share striking similarities with Barack Obama. Similar poor attendance / voting record in the Senate, talking one way and voting another, lying to the American people, authoring the largest mass immigration bill in history.

    Then there is Ted Cruz...
    Ted Cruz had his own troubles last night.

    When asked about why his team didn't fact check the story about Ben Carson, Cruz responded that his team was going by a news report about Carson. Carson pointed out that the report was corrected one minute after it was posted, giving Cruz's team hours to correct their earlier statement. Yet they never retracted or corrected the misinformation they had sent to Iowa voters.

    Trump's closing statement included a reminder of how Cruz won Iowa.

    The New Hampshire Primary should narrow down the competition.
    The first name that might get crossed off the list is Marco Rubio.

    According to a Politico Caucus – Marco Rubio was the clear loser of the final debate. More than two-thirds of GOP insiders surveyed said that Rubio lost and more than 70% said the Florida Senator's performance will hurt his chances of defeating Trump.

    It was a generous assessment considering the fact that Marco Rubio has never come close to Donald Trump in the polls – Iowa Caucus (which was flawed) excluded.

    I think what we saw in this latest debate was the "Bullsh#t VS Balls" issue up front and most of all important. We cannot only draw from the recent past but from the current to prove this.

    Rubio in truth is not that far from our current leadership that being the "Bullsh#t" factor and Trump more the "Balls" factor. When you have a leader who relies on BS not brain not balls not action you limit the scope of your reach your protection and your future.

    But we do have thanks to video the ability to see not only BS leadership but leadership with balls. The kind of leadership sworn to the citizens everywhere in every walk of life NO matter the color the gender or faith.

    Protection based SOLELY on the fact they are Americans. And THAT folks IS equality in justice. Justice and Liberty can ONLY be found where justice and liberty are equal unto ALL.

    So that historical video showing "Bullsh#t VS Balls?" Lets take a 2 minute 30 second look shall we?


    REAL leaders commit/protect and secure SOLELY on the fact that you or your loved ones are American. No other reason needed.

    the debate between bernie and hillary was legendary...

    the GOP debate was pretty lame the way they debated gotcha moments rather than discuss issues.

    Breitbart sez Rubio fell to 5th place.




    by MATTHEW BOYLE8 Feb 2016MANCHESTER, New Hampshire884

    MANCHESTER, New Hampshire — At least two separate GOP presidential campaigns’ internal polling data shows a demonstrable and significant slide for Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) after his widely panned debate performance—where New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie targeted him—Breitbart News has learned.
    A pro-Ohio Gov. John Kasich Super PAC published, via Politico, internal polling numbers showing a drop off for Rubio after Christie exposed him during the debate.

    In that poll, Rubio fell down to 10 percent and into fourth place. “Most of the polling conducted in the immediate days before the debate showed Rubio in second place,” Politico’s Alex Isenstadt wrote late Sunday.

    If one of these clowns dosn't get their sh@T together and beat Trump, we are all in for a rude awaking in a year. Mark my words (no, really, mark 'em) Trump is not who he portrays himself to be. He is a snake, and he will bite the hand that feeds him.
