    In just a few minutes, Americans will see the final GOP debate before March 1st, Super Tuesday. News media has been reporting that Ted Cruz is leading in Texas. After the news broke about Cruz firing his communications manager over a falsely reported story about Rubio, the trial lawyer may be facing a tough cross examination for his actions.

    Ted Cruz had ample time to pull the story about Ben Carson but chose not to. Carson pointed out that the original story about his dropping out of the race was retracted 1 minute after it was posted. Yet hours past by, without any change in the story the Cruz camp ran with, as Cruz went after Dr. Carson's voters.

    One time might be a mistake. Repeating the same mistake twice is not likely.

    Marco Rubio is no saint. Phyllis Shafly reported that Rubio betrayed the American people. The story of what he did is very incriminating: Phyllis Schlafly: Marco Rubio Betrayed Us All
    When it comes to Rubio and Cruz, it is difficult to say who is worse.

    Is it any wonder Trump has been winning by a landslide thus far?

    While some are suggesting that Rubio will go after Trump tonight, it isn't likely to happen. Rubio knows that if he goes after Trump he will have to face the consequences. He's not ready for Trump and he knows it. After rebounding from 5th place, it's doubtful he'd want to risk losing what he so recently gained.

    Ted Cruz, on the other hand, has nothing to lose. He's in 3rd place and likely to stay there unless something big happens. He has to break out tonight. Kaisich and Carson may try to stay in unison with their kumbaya message but with so much at stake between Rubio and Cruz, they could come off looking like two nuns on a battlefield (out of place).

    Carson lost his audience after his tale about the knife. Granted he was in a tough spot. He expected the story to come out and decided he would get out in front of it. That backfired on him when the media turned the tables and suggested there was no record to support his claims. Carson countered with evidence of an old news article in Parade magazine but by then it was too late. The damage had been done.

    Tonight I expect to see Rubio step up his attacks on Cruz in hopes of holding 2nd place. No doubt the fur will fly as Rubio and Cruz battle it out. I expect Trump to look very presidential tonight, answering the questions and making the distinction between himself and the other candidates crystal clear.

    Rubio and Cruz seem to be stuck in the mode of not answering the questions until they make their stump speeches. It isn't working for them and if they do it again tonight, Trump's star will only shine brighter.

    John Kaisich is hoping that Rubio blows it. He knows that if Rubio is out, he may still have a chance to become the establishment's darling. If it doesn't happen tonight, Kaisich may decide to suspend his campaign. If not, Super Tuesday would likely force him to drop out.

    The debate airs tonight at 8:30 p.m. on CNN.

    Until then!

    Robot just destroyed Trump on hiring undocumented workers.

    His handlers must have run updates on his system or something...

    Either Cruz and Rubio and Kasich all team up to pull down Trump so they can each win in their home states, or Trump will be far ahead by this time next week. If each wins in their home states, Rubio will be only about 30 votes behind Trump come the 15th of March.

    Work on Trump's hatred of the American worker by his hiring of illegals and foreign born employees. Hit him until he is on his knees and then metaphorically kick him in the head, repeatedly.

    Rubio is BEHIND in Florida. He loses Florida hes out.
    Its do or die for him. And he looks pretty childish bringing up Ties so late.

    Cruz is 15 points ahead in Texas and that maybe slipping. Hes not doing all that well.

    DF is correct that Rubio must win FL. Cruz could whizz on the floor in front of the whole audience and still win Tx easily.

    Rubio is starting to look like a real jack off. Cruz is losing air time. Not fair but its happening.
