He's hilarious.

I seriously wonder how many politicians actually understand the Internet at all. They have the same look in their eyes as my mom does when she tries to tell me what's wrong with her iPad. (The answer is always that it ran out of battery)

Really, how do these people get to moderate a presidential debate?

Edit: will someone also tell me where all these military cuts are?  Reducing automatic spending increases from 4% to 3.8% isn't a cut where I'm from.

Subs alone could level every major city in the northern hemisphere.

The only amount of military spending that's acceptable for mainstream Republicans is "more."

Anyone who wants to win Ohio would say more military spending.

Again, it wasn't a cut, it was a decrease in future increases, but Congress quickly backed down.

Maybe look at Obamas proposed budgets which never pass. On my end where I do a lot of work for the military, this year has been the particularly busy.

No Rand - not watching. Though not getting into the debate and flipping off the media may be the best thing to happen to his campaign.

takes his ball and goes home?  The debate went on without him... If the polls by Bloomberg and Des Moines Register had been published when the others were, he would have qualified.

These debates ruin Twitter whenever they happen. I don't give a fuck that Ben Carson thinks al-Baghdadi is in Raqqa smoking a cigar. I really really really don't care.

I agree. However, instead of going up there on the first round and actually talking about the corruption he's stomping his feet and got no coverage. The only people talking about him were already rand supporters.
