    Fox News correspondents Neil Cavuto and Maria Bartiromo did a superb job of moderating last night's debate. Both moderators asked key questions and neither targeted the candidates, which is as it should be. Kudos to Fox News for finally selecting two moderators that are capable of handling the job!

    Now for the highlights of the debate:

    The GOP front runner, Donald Trump, was asked if there was anything he heard from Obama's SOTU address that made him want to rethink his position on Muslim immigration. Mr. Trump responded, “No, we have to stop this political correctness!” We have a tremendous problem with radical Islam. From the favorable applause Mr. Trump received, it's apparent his audience agreed with him.

    That didn't stop Gov. Jeb Bush from disagreeing. He accused Mr. Trump of being unhinged in his position of calling for a temporary ban of all Muslims immigrating to the United States. When asked if he was accusing Mr. Trump's supporters of being “unhinged,” Gov. Bush responded, “No.”

    Gov. Bush's failure to differentiate between Trump and his supporters, on the subject of Muslim immigration, was a clear sign that his own position was one of political correctness rather than putting the safety of Americans first.

    Trump scored big on the question about Muslim immigration.

    On the problem of Ted Cruz's eligibility, Mr. Trump pointed out that the Senator was born in Canada and that lawyers were waiting to challenge the issue, should Sen. Cruz win.

    He has a big question mark over his head, Trump said. The American people cannot afford a big question mark on this issue. Trump stated that he was responding to a Washington Post interview when the subject came up. Mr. Trump advised Sen. Cruz to get a declaratory judgment. The Senator responded, “I am not taking legal advice from Mr. Trump.”

    A pivotal moment in the debate occurred when Senator Ted Cruz was asked to explain his comment about Trump's embodiment of New York values.

    The Senator stated that New Yorkers tend to hold socially liberal views that revolve around money and media. He added, “Not a lot of conservatives come out of Manhattan.” Donald Trump fired back, “The entire world saw what kind of wonderful people New Yorkers are after 9/11… Sen. Cruz's comment is highly insulting. Mr. Cruz did not apologize for his comments. At least one moderator was notably taken aback by the Senator's discriminatory attack.

    From there, it was down hill for Senator Cruz. Senator Marco Rubio pointed out that Cruz had repeatedly voted with Democrats and Cruz fired back that Senator Rubio's Gang of Eight had aligned themselves with Barack Obama. After Rubio and Cruz aired each other's dirty laundry, it became clear that both men are members of the Republican establishment and emulate what the American voter is determined to avoid in 2016.

    On the matter of setting the record straight: Donald Trump clarified that the New York Times misquoted him on the 45% tariff and informed the audience that when we do business with China they tax us. We don't have an equal playing field, Mr. Trump said. It's not fair. If they tax us, we should tax them. Trump scored again.

    Gov. Christie confronted Marco Rubio for a vicious attack ad based upon lies and by Rubio's reaction, he knew the Governor was justified in his complaint. Senator Rubio refused to offer Christie an apology.

    The message Gov. Kasich and Dr. Carson emphasized was a need for unity.

    In closing, Dr. Carson made a truly remarkable statement. He said, “Our strength is in our unity.” Carson noted that in the comment section of news articles it doesn't take long for Americans to start ripping each other apart. He asked, “Where did that spirit come from?”

    I believe that spirit comes from the Republican Establishment.

    This is what the Republican Establishment is known for. Infighting among Senators, dishonest attack ads, voting records that prove they are willing to betray the voters who elected them in order to advance their own careers and agendas. Men who use God's name to get elected and use the devil's strategies to stay there.

    It's why polls today are declaring GOP outsider, Donald Trump, the big winner of last night's debate.
    Congratulations, Mr. Trump!

    Even I like mouslims some times Trump don't will this humans to America. The same like SD in Swedes portion system. SD are Nationalism in Sweden. Ultra right christ portion with racism and fascism in there blood. They have never spoke they are nationalsocialism like Führer in Deutschland. Trump have great idea with nothing mouslim to US if he won election this year.

    Great news.

    The only point that needs to be made is to "Gov. Bush's failure to differentiate between Trump and his supporters, on the subject of Muslim immigration, was a clear sign that his own position was one of political correctness rather than putting the safety of Americans first."

    Not at all.

    Bush was clearly pointing out that many of Trump's supporters are outright jingoists and ultra nationalists.

    This is why in part our GOP will lose with a Trump candidacy. His anti positions on veterans, women, and Hispanics hurt him terribly.

    With their attendance records, can Cruz and Rubio even be classified as Senators anymore?

    And let's not forget that the progressive liberal Democrats consider members of the military both active and inactive, such as myself, highly nationalist and something to scorn and spit on.

    Some 11,000 or 12,000 were admitted into a 10,000 capacity facility in Pensacola, Fl on Wednesday to see and hear the next President of the United States, Donald Trump. It is reported that possibly as many as 5,000 had to be turned away. It appears with all the troubles nipping at the heels of Democrat shoo in Hillary Clinton, that Donald may be facing one of the largest landslide victories in history.
