GOP Debate (South Carolina): disgusting

I grew up holding this view of Republicans: I though of them as people that I disagreed with. But they were proud of their educations. They always called for proper deportment and sober behavior in public.

What I saw tonight: Trump and Bush issuing sharp insults. Rubio and Cruz trading insults. People also used the word “lies” and “liar”.

The audience cheered, booed, howled, jeered and were so loud at times that the candidates had to raise their voices to speak over them.

Of course, the first questions were about the Supreme Court and they were all about saying that the Senate should not allow an appointment. But then…

Wow. Example.

Biggest: Trump flatly said that the Iraq invasion was a Big Fat Mistake based on LIES and attacked the idea that “Bush kept us safe” by pointing out that 9/11 came under Bush’s watch. That is obvious but often not said.

Did Trump implode? (the audience was packed with Trump haters). Or did he solidify his credentials as the “anti-establishment” candidate?

I really have no idea.

But I hope that the Democrats keep replaying this…because it was disgusting…candidates AND audience.
