And what of the example of Ronald Reagan, whom each candidate lauded as they debated in the iconic Republican’s presidential library?
South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham turned in a strong presidential debate performance Wednesday night, displaying an extra dose of humor and aggression, mainly at former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum. Later, he built drama by arriving just moments before the undercard debate opened, earning live coverage on CNN as he stepped out of his auto . Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal said the former reality television star does not back an ideology, saying he only “believes in Donald Trump”.
“Today I think we are at a greater risk of attack than we have ever been”, said Pataki, who was serving as governor during the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. “Start over with a new one that’s at least conservative“. Graham insisted it was too early to be dismayed about the polls. Lindsey Graham sparred with Jindal over whether the GOP should compromise with Democrats for political gains.
“Wow”, said former New York Gov. George Pataki. “How many clerks are we going to put in jail?”
If it were up to Graham, there would have no other topics than foreign policy in general and the rise of the Islamic State in particular.
Kudos to candidate Rick Santorum, who defended the American worker against mass immigration in the Jr. “I’m trying to lead this party into winning”. Christie says Americans don’t care. Pataki estimated far fewer, “about 3,000”.
Well, if there’s one thing we learned from the prelim bout on Wednesday night from the Bob MacFarlane Gift Shoppe And Notions Department, it’s that if any of the four of these guys gets elected, we’re going to be at war somewhere, or in a couple of somewheres, very soon.
A big divide emerging between him and Santorum on this though – Graham defending his Senate bipartisan plan – and reminding people that George W. Bush supported reform and won Hispanic voters.
“My response is kinda wow”, Pataki replied. “Then you don’t have the rule of law”, Pataki said.
Graham said “We’re going to need more legal immigration” because of the declining workforce in the country, unless Americans willing to follow example of late Sen.
Santorum responded that the Supreme Court’s ruling went against “God’s law” and therefore should be ignored.
Santorum argued Trump’s desire for a physical barrier on America’s southern border with Mexico could only help so much, turning his focus to the number of undocumented immigrants already within the nation’s borders.
