Who won the Republican debate last night? Jeb Bush saves his future in GOP primary
Who won the GOP debate last night is not an easy question? Marco Rubio is someone who has done consistently well in the last two debates and last night he was more than impressive. After being counted among laggards initially he has become one of the front runners in a long and tiresome Republican primary.
But the man who amazed many with his articulation was Jeb Bush. With his good performance last night he has shown to the world that he can also be an effective speaker if he tends to draw the discussion to subjects he loves most. He has also shown that a subject that he has little or no grasp will not get even a meaningful sentence from him.
In the meantime while talking on immigration reform the third Bush seeking presidential office â€“his father and brother have already been Presidents of United States of America â€“ he impressed one and all. The way he spoke on the subject drew applause from the Republican supporters and admiration from Fox Business moderators.
But the fact that he had his highest point very early in the debate, he didnâ€™t get the sort of applause he deserved at the end. Early on, Donald Trump got a question about immigration and gave his usual response: Heâ€™d build a wall, then work on deporting undocumented people already here.
He drew ridicule from other presidential hopefuls from GOP. Ohio Gov. John Kasich said Trumpâ€™s plan was wildly unrealistic, as it cannot be done any how. He went on to add that deporting as many as 11.3 million undocumented immigrants was simply not possible.
It was the time when Bush entered the discussion and tore into Donald Trump who merely days ago had a great time while holding Saturday Night Live. “It would send a signal that we’re not the kind of country that I know America isâ€¦Even having this conversation sends a powerful signal. They’re doing high-fives in the Clinton campaign right now when they hear this. That’s the problem with this.â€
Donald Trump can fool his audience once but not twice or thrice. While talking about his plan for mass deportation of immigrants he cited â€œoperation wetbackâ€ — a mass deportation operation that President Dwight Eisenhower administered in the 1950s. Bush made it plainly clear that when it comes to immigration reform, Republican Party needs to be both more practical and more humane.
