Quote from: littlechris on January 26, 2016, 10:50:28 PM I didn't know that. The thing is, they already know his views. They just want to create controversy. It's not like he hasn't done plenty of debates (6). It's all getting very old.

Quote from: Coffeeman on January 26, 2016, 10:56:50 PMWho is this "we"? It certainly isn't the Americans scraping by, day-to-day, being fed the usual narrative and saying "fuckit, got bills to pay". Considering where these "facts" are coming from, they're not in line with anything, really.
Quote from: littlechris on January 26, 2016, 10:58:06 PMWho do you propose Trump should pick?
Quote from: Designx on January 26, 2016, 11:01:06 PMIt doesn't matter if he's in the debate or not - Trump isn't going to be the Republican nominee.
Quote from: MV on January 26, 2016, 11:02:27 PMi also think he'll be the nominee, but i'll confess a big chunk of that is rooted in hope. however, it's still too early to say that definitively. anything could happen.
Quote from: MV on January 26, 2016, 10:59:16 PMlet me rephrase the question. in your own words, what does trump say that doesn't align with the facts? i can use google, too.

Quote from: Faustina on January 26, 2016, 11:08:19 PM...and probably will. I would dearly love to see Trump shake up D.C.,... if he won the election,.... but he's such a loose cannon. At some point, he'll say something so over the top that the people who like him now will have to shake their heads and look around for a more viable candidate to back.
Quote from: MV on January 26, 2016, 10:48:02 PMthat's your opinion. i disagree.
Quote from: Designx on January 26, 2016, 11:13:39 PMI think the Republican party at the last minute in fear of alienating their Christian conservative base will make a huge push for Cruz or Rubio - I wouldn't be surprised if either of those two will be the nominee. I think their preference would be Jeb but they do want to actually try winning this time.
Quote from: GravitySucks on January 26, 2016, 10:41:00 PMIf they would be moderators instead of trying to make the news, the debates would be much better and the voters would be better served.
Quote from: VtaGeezer on January 26, 2016, 11:34:37 PMThe only push Cruz will get from the GOP establishment is off a cliff. GOP insiders wouldn't piss on Cruz if he was on fire. He IS hated by his own party, and not just "the Establishment".
Quote from: Faustina on January 26, 2016, 11:40:19 PMYes, I'm sure that Megyn Kelly and Fox are hoping to stir things up, get Trump to make himself look bad, probably causing a ratings surge (for a while) for Fox. Perhaps Trump skipping the debate is as simple as he doesn't want to even give them the opportunity to do that.
Quote from: FightTheFuture on January 26, 2016, 11:47:46 PMTrump is gambling on his ability to buffalo the American electorate. He`ll make it sound like a highly thought-out, strategic decision yada yada, as if his business acumen is so keen, he`s virtually incapable of making a poor decision. NONSENSE. He makes plenty of them. This is just one of them. Although, I doubt it`ll amount to much, as his lead seems to be insurmountable.
Quote from: The King of Kings on January 27, 2016, 12:09:06 AMTrump is the draw at these debates, not some blonde bimbo who has to create a career for herself by attacking Trump.
Quote from: Designx on January 27, 2016, 12:13:52 AMYes bimbo she is - her GQ mag soft porn layout pretty much confirms that.
Quote from: The King of Kings on January 27, 2016, 12:09:06 AMTrump has the momentum here. He perfectly played the media on this. Look at all the media players running to their computers to trash Trump. He single handily exposed the right wing shills for what they are. They aren't for an actual debate, they wanted Trump to show up and be part of a last ditch hit piece on him. The media and even Fox want a candidate they can control. They can't control Trump because he is such a force, Trump has turned the power towards himself. Fox News needs Trump, Trump doesn't need Fox News.Trump is the draw at these debates, not some blonde bimbo who has to create a career for herself by attacking Trump.Lastly, Trump has out debated everyone over the course of 5-6 debates. He has been the clear winner of every debate. There is no strategic reason Trump needs to attend. Only the desperate will show up on Thursday to the debate.
Quote from: littlechris on January 27, 2016, 12:17:53 AMWow, didn't know that.
Quote from: Claudius on January 27, 2016, 12:24:42 AMOh I did...
Quote from: Claudius on January 27, 2016, 12:34:05 AMI have to disagree.
Quote from: FightTheFuture on January 27, 2016, 12:42:17 AMThat image is not from the recent Vanity Fair piece.Even so, that`s soft porn?? Come on, man. You guys ever have a girlfriend?
