If I feel like live-blogging anything, you will read it here. I can’t make any promises.
8:06 Wolf Blitzer: I remember him from watching CNN during the first Gulf War. OK, that has nothing to do with the debate, I was just being nostalgic.
Paul: Conspiracy tinged.
Huckabee: Very gracious, praised the other candidates.
Rubio: No gravitas.
Cruz: Looks like a bird.
Carson: Looks nervous while at the same time looks like he might fall asleep.
Trump: Very presidential looking opener.
Fiorina: There’s something about her I just don’t like. Probably because she reminds me of the sociopathic morons running the company I used to work for.
Kasich: Rambling, no point. Stumbles on his words.
Christie: Third-best opener after Trump and Huckabee.
8:19: CNN talking about Trump controlling the nuclear codes. Blatantly anti-Trump question.
Rand calls Trump “sophomoric” and having junior high school personality.
Jeb is shown giggling at Bush. Not very presidential, Jeb.
8:26 Trump is bragging to Walker about how much better he’s doing in the polls.
8:28 Christie is on fire this debate.
8:29 Carson sounds like he’s on Valium or he’s drunk.
8:30 Wow I really can’t stand Fiorina. Surely other voters must bet getting the same vibe. She can’t win.
8:32 Trump brags that he could raise double or triple what Bush raised if he wants to.
Then Trump and Bush argue about whether he wanted to bring casino gambling to Florida. They say the other is lying.
8:37 Rubio looks like a little kid who snuck into an R-rated movie.
8:39 Fiorina gave a pretty good foreign policy speech, but I still can’t stand her.
8:41 Kasich sounds like the adult in the room.
8:55 Huckabee is on fire with his support for Kim Davis. Maybe Huckabee can pull away Carson’s evangelical support with this performance.
8:59 Every candidate has to say how much they hate Planned Parenthood.
9:02 Fiorina has a big round of applause for her anti-Planned Parenthood screed.
9:38 Huckabee is pushing his stupid FairTax again.
9:41 Trump stands up for graduated tax rates.
9:42: Paul is a moron. He understands nothing about business taxation. It has nothing to do with there being graduated tax rates.
9:48 Wow this is a long debate.
10:17 A three hour debate is too long. This is crazy. As Trump said, CNN is milking Trumps popularity to have big ratings for three hours.
10:24 Great NumbersUSA anti-immigration ad!
10:51 The never-ending debate. Does CNN plan on cutting this off at 11?
11:00 This debate is still going on. Paul just finished rambling about something.
11:12 FINALLY it’s over.
