    I was interested to know what Indian origin American Bobby Jindal said. Did he not participate in this debate?

    Regarding Trump and women… you need to be complete in your reporting.

    Honesty in a political debate is so refreshing. No surprise, the successful businessman shows how its done.

    Obviously not a totally objective evaluation of the evening. You are correct about the overall substance (or lack thereof), but some of your comments regarding the more conservative viewpoints drip with the sarcasm of a progressive. What is wrong with the idea of considering that an unborn child deserves protection as a person? If they were not human beings, there would be little desire for their tissue as Planned Parenthood markets them to the highest bidders. Our immigration laws are already the most lax in the world. What is wrong with suggesting that we treat Mexicans the way Mexico treats illegally immigrating Americans? If we did, we would likely be called barbaric. Stick to commodities and let those who follow the constitution decide who they like in the primary.

    I will stick with Donald J. Trump and vote for him come Primary Election for President in 2016. If I were Megyn Kelly I will not ask personal questions, which is unnecessary for what is happening with our country. We are lagging in economy and no jobs for young people, particularly newly college graduates. Besides, Donald maybe referring to one talkative, former TV host. Remember that Donald is married and has a daughter. How can he hate women? Kelly’s question shows very low intelligence and lack of vision of what is going around our country: economic hardships.

    Trump is nothing but a shill for the Clintons. He will run as a third party and receive his rewards from the Clintons as cigar Bill and the Hillamonster
    take the White House, in the same manner as Ross Perot gave it to them.

    Even that Mr. Trump is not 99% the ideal candidate. I as a 100% Republican can say that YES we need action. Remove ALL the illegal immigrants and interfere much less with foreign problems, putting that money into education, health and security.

    Personally, I was disappointed by the topics of the debate. I felt Fox would conduct a debate on more substantive subjects like the economy and national security rather than ‘gotcha’ questions reminiscent of what the Republican candidates can expect on other networks. A wasted opportunity. Too bad!

    I was disappointed by the topics, too. The question of whether any would run as Independent wasted time they could have used for more important issues, since Trump has said repeatedly that he will if not the GOP nominee. Personally, I would like to hear him speak about something other than his money. I doubt he has much of substance to say or he would be saying it.

    This article is the most accurate analysis of the debate that I’ve seen. I don’t see any of the ‘dripping sarcasm’ mentioned by another commenter, even though I agree with Huckabee on the Constitutional protection of unborn babies.

    The good editor cavaliers dismisses, as so many do, that Mr Huckabee’s comments on tax reform were about The Fairtax, not just pimps, whores and drug dealers. His descriptive mention of the (God Forbid) unmentionable non-tax paying participants in the great cash economy of this country were an example that billions of dollars go untaxed outside of the corporate loopholes. When will you people who have responsible roles in the media, ever decide to learn about and maybe even embrace, the most logical reform to our tax problem?… that is mystifying.

    Just sent this to FOX NEWS: Really DISGUSTED with the debate questions!!!! I wanted to know Trumps plans to restore Social Security, how he plans to address the the allegations of widespread voter fraud, more details about his thoughts on taxes, etc. But you asked him WHAT?! Why he called Rosie a pig!? Answer: because she IS! And calling him a liar about his border control comments??!! Really?? And hammering him about his financial losses rather than acknowledge that he’s a self-made billionaire??!! Who do you think you are? Which all reminds me why I quit watching Fox and Megan and Kraut et.al. Question for YOU: What makes you different than the news/reporters on the left? Answer: NOTHING!! BIGOTED WITH AN AGENDA!! We are so sick of you ALL!!

    No comment with regard to former governor Pataki who was governor of a blue state for three terms. He must know how to something right and a lot of experience to prove it!!!

    Kelly was way out of order. I wanted to hear what the candidates ideas were to our county’s problems, not to what Kelly wanted to hear. She got what she deserved, a Trump answer.

    You forgot to mention that we also learned that both Scott Walker & Marco Rubio will advance policy that 83% of the population disagrees with (especially women, of course) that they will “allow” NO exceptions to abortion… even the life of the mother! Yes, the War on Women STILL lives with Catholics & Southern Baptists, who make up most of our GOP candidates! Those So Bapt & Catholic extremes on social issues can’t win a general election!!!!

    So you are saying that 83% of women are in favor of the butchering and harvesting of their babies?

    Makes me proud that I turned down the opportunity to become a “member of mensa”
    I’m no cannibal!

    Mr. Trump: I’m a democrat but would gladly vote for you if, and I mean IF you would make a supreme effort in taking on the entire Congress an all their ludicrous benefits which I nor any other American is entitled to or can afford. Social Security, care for all Veterans (note: I waited for 35 yrs. before I finally was given a 10% disability. 35 yrs.), Medicare these are the things important to me. I have no problem paying taxes if it is used for me my family an the people like me putting into the pot. We send Billions out of the country for for what? Fix your house first because it needs fixing and it needs it badly. Put a stop to congress from lining their pockets. Stick to the issues an only the issues and forget the other garbage. Treat it as if it were a business an I was a stock holder one who has invested weekly for the past 65yrs only to see very little compared to what I invented. You sir have a very good chance to take all the marbles and I hope you do. But please do it for the people not for those wanting to further line their pockets. This country needs a good house cleaning and I believe you to be the man if your truly up to it. Thank you, John Clark.

    I didn’t watch it, I don’t watch TV, my iq is too high.
    However, I was under the impression that 10 people participated, including my personal favorite Rand Paul.

    On the topic of women, you really should listen to Mark Levin’s excellent take on the Trump-Kelly matter. Just Google it.
