SINCE I HAVE BEEN REMINDED THAT THIS IS A BLOG ABOUT ANDERSON, THE DEBATE WILL BE ANALYZED TO DEATH
BY AC AND HIS TEAM WAY PAST THE MIDNIGHT HOUR.
I FOR ONE, DID NOT LISTEN TO IT IN ITS ENTIRETY. I USUALLY DO BUT IT WAS ALMOST THREE HOURS LONG.
THE MODERATORS WERE ALL QUALIFIED FROM FOX BUSINESS NEWS AND THEY ALL DID THEIR JOB WELL.
THEY STAYED ON TOPIC AND MADE THE CANDIDATES STAY ON TOPIC, ALTHOUGH SOME DID STRAY A BIT AND MEMORIZED CERTAIN SCRIPTS TO FIT THE DYNAMICS OF THE QUESTION.
TRUMP WAS OUT OF HIS LEAGUE. I DON'T CARE IF HE WAS THE 'UTMOST VENTURE CAPITALIST' ON THE STAGE.
HE IS NOT WELL TRAVELED.....NOT BECAUSE HE CAN'T. HE JUST DOESN'T, AND THAT'S ONE THING NOBODY HAS
ASKED HIM. HOW CAN YOU JUSTIFY FOREIGN POLICY AFFAIRS IF YOU DON'T LIKE TO TRAVEL? BEING PRESIDENT
MEANS YOU MUST TRAVEL ALL OVER THE WORLD.
YES, HE HAS BEEN TO CHINA IF ONLY BECAUSE HIS BUSINESS DEALS HAVE REQUIRED HIM TO GO.
I WAS IMPRESSED WITH FIORINO'S KNOWLEDGE AND BACKGROUND AND THE MANY PLACES ACROSS THE GLOBE SHE
HAS VISITED. SHE HAS A UNIQUE BACKGROUND AND SHE IS NOT ONE DIMENSIONAL.
JEB BUSH IS TOTALLY UNAPPEALING. HE DOESN'T HAVE TO EVEN MENTION HIS BROTHER. AT LEAST W. HAD A CERTAIN CHARM, OR WAS IT HUMOR PLUS STUPIDITY? WHATEVER, WE COULDN'T HELP BUT LIKE HIM, EVEN IF
HE MADE THE BIGGEST BLUNDER IN HISTORY AND INVADED IRAQ. AND SOMEONE MUST TELL TED CRUZ, THAT IT WAS A REPUBLICAN THAT LED US DOWN THE WRONG PATH FOR A DECADE AND NOT HILLARY CLINTON,
AND IT ALSO WAS A REPUBLICAN THAT CAUSED THE GREAT RECESSION, NOT HILLARY CLINTON AND THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION, AND THEY MUST BE LOUD AND CLEAR.
BUT ALL AND ALL, THE FOX MODERATORS ASKED QUESTIONS OF SUBSTANCE AND THE CANDIDATES ALL HAD PRACTICAL PLANS, EXCEPT DONALD TRUMP. NO, MR TRUMP. YOU CAN'T DEPORT MILLIONS OF ILLEGAL PEOPLE WITHOUT
CREATING CHAOS AND EVEN THAT COSTS MONEY....THERE IS A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN LOGIC AND FANTASY.

Politics was the big deal on Tuesday's 360. The actual lead was the small airplane which crashed into an apartment building in Akron OH. Anderson had a short Q&A with Rene Marsh for a few minutes. Then the topic was tonight's GOP debate.
The on-screen title called the B-team debate the "Undercard Debate". I like Rachel Maddow's term: "The Kiddie Table". 360 showed a few clips from that debate. My favorite was NJ Gov. Christie arguing against too much government control of the economy; he was using language like 'government getting too much into our lives is bad' and 'the government doesn't know what is best for you' and other sentences that could be neatly applied to the pro-choice argument. Jindal and Santorum got some attention in clips and from the panel but it wasn't until much later in 360 that viewers found out the fourth guy at the debate was AR Gov. Huckabee. The panel was Ana Navarro, Ana-Malika Henderson, Jeffrey Lord and Gloria Borger.

John King presented more poll results concerning the GOP candidates at the start of the second segment. Anderson talked to some dolt about Jeb. I don't know who that guy was but lost all respect for him when he called Jeb "...a fantastic Governor of Florida..." Barely two hours earlier I read an article about the ways Jeb slashed education in Florida. The state used to be above Mississippi in most measures of good education but is now at rock bottom and Mississippi is 49th. The same panel from the first segment came back for more discussion. The only comment that stood out was Navarro's mention of Kasich. Personally, I think Kasich is the most normal and least revolting of all the GOP candidates. And that's why he doens't get much attention from the media.

In the next segment Anderson talked to Dana Bash for her review of the "Undercard" debate and thoughts on the big debate coming up shortly. Randi Kaye repored from Iowa with 20 undecided voters. Kaye spoke with two of them. The first woman had a valid point about industry but then she lost me when she commented on the importance of a candidate being evangelical.

Donna Brazile should have had her own segment. She was able to speak individually for a couple of Anderson's questions but the panel of Navarro, Henderson and Lord got in there. The topic was Hillary Clinton laughing off an audience member's remark on Carly Fiorino and "strangling". Brazile said the days of a candidate defending their opposition, like McCain did once in 2008 (woman who called Obama a Muslim), are over. In the current election cycle candidates are under no obligation to push back on such comments. Navarro said Hillary should have pushed back and "risen above it". Funny how I can't imagine the 2016 crop of GOP candidates doing that.

The Russian 9268 airplane crash got a few minutes. Anderson talked to Jim Sciutto about the latest on the investigation.

Gary Tuchman had the last segment. He was in South Carolina at a gathering of 100-some GOP debate watchers. At one point he asked the crowd "How many support ____?" several times with different candidates. There were various levels of shouts and whoops for each candidate Tuchman asked about except one. When he asked "How many support Carly Fiorino?", there was absolute silence.

I wasn't interested enough in the debate to watch the two-hour analysis that Anderson hosted later. But I like ATA's screengrab photo of Anderson in his glasses.

John King's magic wall had some illuminating info--I hope Trump is the GOP nominee because Hillary Clinton would crush him--even Republicans can't see themselves voting for him in the general election--the election's a long way off and anything can happen, but I think the GOP are setting themselves up for a disaster in the general election on immigration and the minimum wage--but any time Republicans fail is GREAT for the country. AC didn't give Donna Brazile much airtime, but once again she got the final word about the improving economy under President Obama--no one else would've said it, not even former Obama staffer David Axelrod, so I'm always glad to see Brazile on these panels for the truth telling--AC ended the show as fast as he could after she got that in!

John Kaisch doesn't get the scrutiny from the media because of his supposedly "moderate" GOP reputation, however, if you look closely at his record, he has the same extremist views on abortion and is as anti-union as Wisconsin governor Scott Walker (Kaisch took away collective bargaining rights for unions in order to give a big tax break to the rich). Kaisch has also backed legislation that hurt the poor and minorities and has weakened public education in Ohio and has made it more difficult to obtain a college education. Not to mention that Kaisch is a big supporter of Voter I.D. laws that make it difficult for minorities, students and the elderly to vote (who mainly tend to lean Democratic). Kaisch is really no different than the rest of the GOP clowns but he's been good at disguising his extremist views and the media doesn't bother to look into his actual record in Ohio in order to push this "Kaisch is a compassionate, moderate conservative" narrative. Don't be fooled.

The GOP network show continued AC can hardly not disguise his bias towards republicans... AC just does not challenge GOP like dems. Anyway I saw whole debate some of their cuts seemed so extreme and their opposition to raising the wage was disappointing people in more poorer states should take notice of what they want to cut. I don't see any harm in raising the minimum wage at least to 10 dollars an hour. I think 15 is to high but as a country we should compromise to at least 10. Trumps rethoric about illegal immigrants was just harsh. I agree more need to be deported and border control but his language is a bit harsh and will haunt gop doing general election.

ACCORDING TO ANDERSON AND HIS TEAM OF EXPERTS, THE MINIMUM WAGE WAS VOTED DOWN BY BOTH TRUMP AND
CARSON, AND I FIND MYSELF AGREEING WITH THEM. CUTTING PAYROLL TAXES IS A BETTER IDEA FOR ALL.
WHEN WAGES ARE RAISED IN THE SERVICE INDUSTRIES SMALL BUSINESS SUFFERS, BECAUSE THEY HAVE TO PAY
EMPLOYEES HIGHER WAGES AND THEREFORE RAISE PRICES ON WHAT THEY'RE SELLING, LIKE FOOD, AND OTHER STAPLES TO OFF SET THE WAGE INCREASE. SO IT IS A VICIOUS CYCLE...AND THAT FIVE OR SIX DOLLARS IS NOT GOING TO PUT MORE FOOD ON THE TABLE. IT MAY EVEN DO MORE HARM BY CUTTING SPENDING WHICH DRIVES
THE ECONOMY. SO I DO SEE THEIR LOGIC AND BELIEVE ME, IT HAS BEEN VERY DIFFICULT TRYING TO DISTINGUISH BEN CARSON'S LOGIC FROM ACTUAL FICTION, BUT I DID MINOR IN ECONOMICS, AND HE ACTUALLY
WAS A BRAIN SURGEON. NOW THAT IN AND OF ITSELF, IS AMAZING. OR AS TRUMP WOULD SAY....HUGE.
