    Can you tell they are avoiding the potential grenades the media might pick up and throw? Did the moderators ask questions in a way to avoid the mention of these points? Just wait until the Democratic ‘debates’. After they have picked apart the Republican debates to figure out what they need to say.

    Frank, do you have a thread going here. I would truly like to read one of your blogs, see how others respond to you, how you debate your own points.

    Money is of course the main topic as the media has promoted the trillions in debt, money borrowed and trade debt. It will be interesting to see if that alters somewhat in the next debate. Trump did well, but I noticed that Carson was squeamish about the ‘high five’ offered and looked like his hand would fall off he shook a white mans hand. Or was it just an opponents hand? Either way it deflated Carson’s friendly words to all. Trump has, in his own way, tried to, publicly, be friendly with everyone. If he does say something offensive, then tries to ease the hurt. He really did not owe Bush’s’ wife an apology. That he is married to her undoubtedly has influenced his views. Trump did not say that was anyone’s fault, just that it is a fact of life. Both men are wealthy and money is part of their conversation. Trump is growing as he campaigns on his own dollar, learning more about the world of political rhetoric, but I like his forward or outward style. I do not see him as an TV actor anymore. If he learns a little diplomacy to mix with his bombastic rhetoric, he’ll do alright.
