(Before It's News)

So much of the press was so hoping for a throw down between Trump and Cruz that they avoided the obvious. Tonight was always going to be about Cruz v. Rubio. They had to do it. It is the start of the shake up.

Cruz got the better of Rubio, barely, on the immigration issue, but Cruz did misstate his position on legalization. I don’t know that it will really matter with his core supporters.

Frank Luntz noted that his focus group really did not like it when Cruz attacked Rubio. I personally thought it played to attacks on his character that he kept talking well after his time was over.

But ultimately, Cruz did well. It was reflected by Luntz’s focus group and even social media. I suspect he and Rubio neutralized each other and did not make gains from either’s supporters.

One thing to note is that every time Rubio and Cruz interacted, they did so with smiles on their faces. When Rubio and Paul interacted, they scowled at each other. It was a fascinating dynamic and window into relationships.

  • I like Trump better the longer he is on his meds, but then again some of his ideas are just looney tunes.

    I like Rubio except for the fact that he (nor anyone else) mentioned the privacy rights of U.S. citizens during their, “we need to gather information on everyones phone calls,” argument.

    Carly is intelligent, but not very personable. An effective Politian should not have difficulty making/keeping friends.

    Christie is smart, but he blocked a bridge on their election day…..scandal anyone?

    Carson is looking better than some.

    Paul was on fire…..whew, someone really ticked him off before the debate. (Likely Cruz)

    Kasich has the ‘Homeowner of record” stamp of disapproval.

    Jeb performed better….but he is still a Bush.

    Cruz…..well……I have never been able to stomach someone that doesn’t understand the words “Stop” or “No.”

    I still like Bernie best.
