People are not "afraid to say" what Trump is saying. They just don't have the pulpit to say it, which is what makes him attractive for saying what they wish Republicans and Demos would get down to saying.
I would much prefer they ALL stop "saying" anything...and just get down to necessary ACTION, before we all disintegrate where we stand!
Paula said, "I would much prefer they ALL stop "saying" anything." Amen to that. It seems forever that politicians have been campaigning and talking and they never shut up and get down to business.
The term debate is being constantly misuse. In a debate, each person would answer the same question, and it would be very boring with that many candidates. This was a forum or something like it. It was a beauty pageant for candidates.

PERFECTLY said!! Simply perfect!
Thank you Paula. Trump knows what he's doing and he's got most everyone doing exactly what he wants and expected them to do.
His agenda could be to get Hillary elected! How weird is THAT to think about??
TIMETRAVELER2, the thought has crossed my mind. ;)
Setting up a third party bid would give sure defeat to the already fractured Republican/Tea Party. Could that be the ultimate goal of the disparaging remarks? Certainly insulting Hispanics and women has already gone a long way toward a GOP loss.
Well, he did give 100K to the Clinton Foundation, and he has given more money to Democrats than Republicans. However, one man who doesn't need Trump's money is Jeb Bush---and that's a good thing.
Savvydating, Mr. Bush has a Super-Pacwith more than a hundred million in it, and he isn't financing his own campaign, so I think he wants money from anywhere he can get it like any other candidate.
Au fair, I enjoyed your full comment. I suppose Super Pacs do their thing regardless, but I do see Jeb distancing himself from Trump. At any rate, once Trump leaves, he may very well support Hillary, just as he always has.
Savvydating, during the debate all the candidates were differential in varying degrees. They do want his contribution if they can get it, and there is risk in offending his supporters -- currently he is the front runner.
I imagine many ppl had a suspicion about Trump doing this FOR Hilary. BUT..he has seriously Bad-mouthed her numerous times, so I doubt it, unless it's all part of his game? He is shameful & disgraceful. If this is what Billions do, I'll stay poor
au fait, I did not notice any particular deference. Actually, I thought they wanted this debate to be less about Trump, & more the others getting their turn to speak. But, I'm a hopeless optimist...
Paula, Trump does have to be convincing that he is truly a Republican, etc. Savvydating., only Rand Paul was disrespectful to Trump. True none licked his boots, but they were extremely respectful if you prefer that characterization.
I watched the debate. I didn't see that anyone was showing deference. It seemed more like a thing of 'I wish the moderators will stop giving Trump so much time, consequently, I will not engage him." Guess we all see thru our own lenses, :)
I pray the last sentence here is wrong this time around, and that touring the country and meeting real people will introduce some much needed political sobriety. The social media isn't much better at staying on track.
Demas, The Donald isn't the only Republican who makes racist and sexist comments. The Republican Party is waging a war on women. Savvy, everyone sees the world through their own lens. Unfortunately some people see only what they want to see.

The interesting thing now is that none of us are at all sure what his game is. Good poker?
DWJ..LOL...good poker or just obnoxious behavior, classless antics and a totally out-of-control EGO....w/ more multiple choice to come! His ratings are about to take a serious DIVE.

Interesting observation. So the other candidates do not have a short fuse because they bottle it up or because they do not care as much? Aren't those the folks that blow up the worst? Hmmm something to consider.

We're on the same page. Agree with everything you say until you get to Joe Biden. He's a great guy, and I would vote for him another time, but not this one.
I agree with you, and Au fait both. my 2 ¢ the candidates want to be president for the sake of winning that position and they care nothing about anything or anybody, but to carry out the agenda of their puppeteers.
The great politicians and the obese federal government is how we got to today. The US continues to decline, and it is the politicians and government that are fueling is movement.
How could the country run any worse than it is today.
Every person mentioned as a presidential candidate is opposed by someone. Will someone tell me who they think the perfect candidate is. Do not give me a description. Give me the name of this person. Our problems are in congress, not the White House.
