tv   Anderson Cooper 360 Post Debate Special  CNN  November 10, 2015 11:00pm-12:01am PST

11:00 pm
back here to ask him a couple of questions, we hope, including maybe to respond to what carly fiorina just told us about how she felt he came across when he asked her to stop interrupting so much during the debate. but also how he feels about -- i'm just looking over my shoulder to make sure he's not close, but also about how he feels overall. it was pretty intense policy discussion, and in those moments, he didn't play as much as he has in the past when it's been more about personal thety or character or politics. >> we'll check back in with you. we were talking about this a little bit during the break. do you think people -- any minds were really achanged tonight? >> i really don't. i think this thing went pretty much true to form. i don't think the front runners probably lost much ground. i think the two guys who have been doing well, cruz and rubio,
11:01 pm
did well again. i think bush did do better, but i don't think he did enough to really ignite his candidacy. i think kasich was more energet energetic, but i don't think he's selling something republicans are particularly buying. we're watching this slide to possibly a four-man race with the two front runners and rubio and cruz. >> i they'll maintain front runner status but it will be a gradual fall. i think the pattern we're seeing emerge might be cruz and rubio. we'll have a good debate about the future of the republican party and if it will be a conservative stance or a moderate run. >> we'll call it a primary. i think what you just heard from
11:02 pm
that guy in south carolina in the focus group is so telling, and it's telling for the voters in iowa and new hampshire in the early states. they're volatile states where they make up their minds fairly late in the game. they're going to spend the next 90 days scrutinizing, and they can change their minds ten times between now and then. >> it looks like donald trump is coming up to dana. >> appreciate it. first, generally, were you happy with how this debate went? >> i thought it was great. i thought the questions were really on point. and i thought it was a great night. i really thought it was, actually, the word is elegant. it was an elegant evening. the three of them, they were so professional, especially after the last catastrophe where people are asking about fantasy football, however that stuff gets in there. they did a great job. >> what did you make of your exchange with john kasich.
11:03 pm
i just spoke to him after the debate ended and he said he's going to keep pressing on the fact that he thinks your immigration plan is not realistic. >> that's okay. there are a few people up there who agree with me. if you look at early 1950s, a man named dwight eisenhower moved people out three different times. he moved them here, here, and then final he rereally moved them out. we're a nation of laws, and we have to do it right. we need borders, and we have to come into the country, come in legally. i think that was -- it may have been my largest applause of the night when i said about the wall, when i said about -- when i talked about immigration. it may have been the largest applause i got that night. >> i just spoke to carly fiorina and asked her about the moment when you asked the moderators why she was interrupting so much. she said it was typical trump. and other people were
11:04 pm
interrupting all night long. >> i wasn't interrupting people, and i thought it was time somebody said because carly has a habit of speaking when he wants. she was fine, but i thought it was appropriate, because every time she -- she interrupted too many times. >> i asked her if she thought it was because of her gender, and she said you decide. >> say hello to jeff zuker. i'm not concerned about anything, and say hello to jeff. >> i will. bye. >> all right. >> it turns out donald trump was a model of decorum. >> it's his wife who has a calming effect on him. >> i cannot, for the life of me, as someone who wants to stop illegal immigration, why he is leading with the deportation card, it makes no sense to me. you can talk about stopping the flow of illegal immigration, but i don't think he understands the bureaucratic problems that the
11:05 pm
federal government faces and it's easier to say deport and build a wall than go through the process of figuring out the problem. >> let's talk about this. for those tuning in at the top of the hour, i want to show you some of the key moments. this debate was billed as being about the economy. for many on the stage, it was always about more than just that, for donald trump and ben carson, it was a chance to show why they deserve to be leading. two others came in with perhaps the most to gain. several others took the opportunity to try to stake out their differences. let's take a look at some of the key moments during this debate. >> when you think it's going to be a good idea to have a no-fly zone over iraq, realize that means you're saying we're going to shoot down russian planes. if you're ready for that, be ready to send your sons and daughters to another war in iraq. i don't want to see that happen. i think the first war in iraq was a mistake.
11:06 pm
you can be strong without being involved in every civil war around the world. >> how would you respond? >> ronald reagan was strong. >> and he walked away at rikivek. he quit talking and it was time to quit talking. >> why does he keep interrupting everybody? terrible. >> i'd like to finish any response, basically. >> as far as syria, if putin wants to go in, and i got to know him very well because we were both on 60 minutes. we were stable mates. if putin wants to go and knock the held out of isis, i'm for it 100%, and i can't how understand anybody would be against it. they blew up. wait a minute. they blew up a russian airplane. he cannot be in love with these people. he's going in and we can go in and everybody should go in. >> donald is wrong on this. he is absolutely i don't think
11:07 pm
on this. we're not going to the world's policemen, but we better be the world's leader. there's a huge difference. without us lead, voids are filled. the idea that it's a good idea for putin to be in syria, let isis take out asaad and putin will take out isis. that's like playing a board game. >> you know, mr. trump fancies himself a very good negotiator, an i accept that he's done a lot of good deals. so, mr. trump ought to me that we should not speak to people from a position of weakness. senator paul should know that as well. one of the reasons i've said that i would not be talking to vladimir putin right now, although i have met him as well. not in a green room for a show, but in a private meeting -- [ applause ] >> bernie sanders and hillary clinton won't tell you that's the thing that's hurting the middle class and the poor. they'll say it's the rich. take their money.
11:08 pm
that won't help. you can take all the rich's money and it won't make a dent. we have to come back to the fundamental preseninciples thate america great. >> hillary clinton, she wants to double down on that. she wants to create even more so. she is a captive of the left of her party to the point where she was for the trade agreement in the pacific agreement and now she's against it. he was for the excel pipeline, now she's opposed to it. all the things that would create sustained economic growth, she's doubling down against it. >> you can't seriously guarantee that there won't be another financial crisis, can you? >> you could -- >> ever? >> i can't say that. >> why would you then bail out ritual street banks but not mom and pop. you just said an executive. >> i didn't say. >> they were talking about what you would do with depositors.
11:09 pm
would you let the banks shut down. my argument going forward is banks have to reserve the capital so that the people who own the capital start pressuring the banks to not take these risky approaches, ted, but at the end of the day. >> you said you'd abandon philosophy and principal, but what would you do if the bang was failing? >> i would not let the people who put their money in there all go down. as an executive, i would figure out how to separate those people who can afford it versus those people, the hard working folks who put their money in those institutions. >> hillary clinton is the clear front runner for the democracy kno nomination. she was the first lady of the united states, a u.s. senator from new york, and secretary of state under barack obama.
11:10 pm
she has arguably, more experience, certainly more time in government than almost all of you on stage tonight. why should the american people trust you to lead this country even though she has been so much closer to the office? >> well, that's a great question. and let me begin by answering it. >> i mean, it is interesting, the reaction to some of the john kasich's comments. again, we go back to his comment on illegal immigration and the idea of deportation played well in the room, but you look on twitter conservatives, not favorable. >> there's a lot of what he has that's reminiscent of the bush mars. also what you saw in the bailout discussion. what ted cruz was getting at was essentially an echo of bush's
11:11 pm
remarks that we have to save the free market from itself. john kasich is saying we have to bail out the banks and not let people suffer, never mind the laws that protect people already up to 200,000. the debates over the bailouts is what spurred the tea party into action. people were frustrated with what bush did. they're working out that anger and it's being directed at john kasich. >> it's more important to govern. >> governing is defined by a lot of these folks by moving the country left. they'd lose and repeat the cycle. margaret thatcher was determined to move the country in the other direction because she thought it was damaging britain. >> kasich is a governor of a
11:12 pm
purple state. he's now a governor of that purple state. the purplest of them all, the one upmost for grabs. before and after this, he may still be the governor, and i think what i give him kudos for, not pandering. nod trying to be who he's not. it's very different from being a senator from a red state. >> the fact that people debate his relative conservative is a reflection on what this republican party has become. >> we need to take a quick break. there's a fact check and a focus group in iowa as our special 360 coverage continues.
11:13 pm
the internet of things. what we're recommending as your consultants... the new consultants are here. it's not just big data, its bigger data. we're beta testing the new wearable interface... ♪ xerox believes finding the right solution shouldn't be so much work. by engineering a better way for people, process and technology to work together. work can work better. with xerox. when a moment turns romantic why pause to take a pill? or stop to find a bathroom? cialis for daily use is approved to treat both erectile dysfunction and the urinary symptoms of bph, like needing to go frequently, day or night. tell your doctor about all your medical conditions and medicines, and ask if your heart is healthy enough for sex.

11:16 pm
welcome back. tonight's debate was a chance for the candidates to have a breakout moment and to win over undecided voters. in south carolina and iowa in the last hour, we heard from voters near charleston. now iowa. we've been talking a lot about evangelical christians. randy is in marshaltown, iowa. >> reporter: we watched a debate with a church here. many of them undecided. in fact, about 80% of iowans are still undecided as we're approaching this caucus. this was an important debate for them. they're trying to get closer to the candidate of their choice. there was a moment that really stood out for this group. particularly the, this moment where donald trump got into it over immigration. that's important in this community. >> we are a country of laws. we need worders.
11:17 pm
we will have a wall. the wall will be built. the wall will be successful, and if you think walls don't work, all you have to do is ask israel. >> we need to allow people to earn legal status where they pay a fine and work and don't commit crimes and learn english. over an extended petriod of tim, they earn legal status. that's a proper path. >> clearly a big disagreement on the immigration issue. frank, you're a strong donald trump supporter. do you think he made his case? >> yeah. he's made his case from day one when he announced he was running. this country needs laws and it needs a border to be a country. and donald trump is the one who can get that into place. >> do you believe he can get out the illegal immigrants that he says he can, thousands of them in. >> yes. it's going to take time. no doubt. but what's going to happen is donald trump is smart. he surrounds himself with people that can help him get the job
11:18 pm
done, and it's going to be done, and he can get it done and will be a great country again. >> reporter: somebody who might disagree with you is on our right. ben, you came in as a ted cruz supporter. you like his immigration plan? >> yes, ma'am. i like how he wants to solidify the border. that's essential. we need to secure the boarder from happening the terrorists. if we have an open border, they come in and out. and this splolidified ted cruz r you. >> yes. i liked his statement about not being for amnesty as well. >> jane, what about you. certainly in the christian community, immigration is important. >> it's difficult as a christian. we have to reconcile the commands of having compassion and that we have to follow the
11:19 pm
laws of the land. we have to find a way to make those two work together on it. it's interesting, though, in the area of immigration, it's the only policy that has been created more so, i'm a santorum supporter and he said it's the only one where the policies are designed in the best interest of the immigrant rather than in the best interest of americans, and i think there's a lot of hurting american families who jobs and wages have been driven down because of it. you have to look at all of those issues instead of focusing on ones is aspect. >> reporter: it's an important issue here in this community, but two people have officially decided tonight in terms of their candidate, one being right here, ben, next to me. anderson, back to you. >> randy, thank them all for sticking around for us. back with our panel here in washington, it is interesting always to hear, and those were e evangelical voters. >> it tells me broadly that the
11:20 pm
republican party this time around wants to be a law and order party. donald trump is strongest talking about illegal immigration when he talks about stopping it, not deportation. people like ted cruz because he talks about it in the same way. when moderate candidates turn it into how we'll give protections and legal status to already who broke the law, people are rejecting that and people say how come the republican party has become so much more hard line on this in recent years in it's because it gets worse and worse every year, and now we have the national security element to worry about. >> the question is is it worse than it was in 120 when mitt romney talked about it. this is deportation. >> donald trump is the only one talking about it in those terms.
11:21 pm
>> cruz said amnesty. >> let's play cruz talking about amnesty. >> the democrats are laughing. because if republicans join democrats on the party of amnesty, we will lose. [ applause ] . >> and, i understand that when the mainstream media covers immigration, it doesn't often see it as an economic issue, but can i tell you for a million of americans at home watching this, it is a very personal economic issue. and i will say the politics of it would be very, very different if a bunch of lawyers or bankers were crossing the rio grand, or if a bunch of people with journalism degrees were coming over and driving down the wages in the press. [ applause ] >> what he's saying there is what was reflected in john king's polling numbers. when they turn to donald trump, they gave him 40 %, something,
11:22 pm
and then right behind that was illegal immigration, and we've seen polls where that's in iowa. so the two issues are intertwined. they're not separate issues. they're together. and i think that's why he makes such an impact with it, and because he's so crystal clear on this. that's what they're looking for. >> can we have a reality check? >> i'm about to give one. >> one sec. david. >> we have a coronet thuntry th becoming more diverse each election. the republican candidate has to get something in the order of 40% of the hispanic vote to win the election. george w. bush got 44%, and we're more diverse than we were in 2002 when george w. bush won. just as a clinical matter, this is a losing debate for the republican party. if the republican party gets hung up on -- i mean, i think
11:23 pm
when ted cruz says we don't want to be the party of amnesty, the democrats are laughing, a majority of this country believes in comprehensive reform that gives people a path to citizenship if they pay things and so on. that's where a majority of the country is, beyond which the hispanic community was completely alien ated by the debate on immigration four years ago and they will be again if this is the tenor of the debate. >> donald trump hit upon this subject matter and this topic, i think, by accident. in his opening speech when he was launching his campaign, he called mexican rapists, and the next day his numbers started going way up. now the more drastic his terms can be, the better in his book. i think that the difference you're trying to draw between donald trump and ted cruz is really in the weeds. you're a former capital hill staffer. for most people out there, cruz
11:24 pm
and trump are anti-immigrant. bush and kasich and rubio have supported legal status. i think that's how people understand it, and there is a skiff in the republican party on this issue. >> negative 51% midsummer in fact he's incapable of growing the tent in a way that david correctly states is necessary for the republicans to win a general election. >> what do you say to the argument that david is just on numbers needing to get a certain amount of a hispanic votes. >> hispanics are not equally dispersed around the country. there are a lot of hispanics in california. i'm not sure the republican party is going to carry california. where they are makes a difference. >> colorado, florida, nevada. >> you also have to get your base out.
11:25 pm
they don't turn out to vote. >> wild horses could not keep conservatives have coming out to vote against hillary clinton. >> i heard that about barack obama. >> but this is interesting. because this, it seems to me, is the debate that the republican party has to have. each election, the republican party has nominated a center right, kind of establishment, republican at the end of the day, and they've lost the popular vote five out of the last six elections and lost the last couple of elections. you hear conservatives say we need a real conservative. >> like reagan. he was right. >> and maybe you guys have to run the experiment. >> how do you define what a real conservative is in. >> you think it's going to happen? >> look at the frustration the republican primary voters have, they are saying, you know, even now in the process in supporting donald trump and carson, we don't want more of the same. we don't like what happened the
11:26 pm
last two elections. we want a strong conservative against liberal policies. there's no appetite for a moderate republican. >> we need a quick break. we'll continue when we come back. this is claira. to prove to you that aleve is the better choice for her she's agreed to give it up. that's today? we'll be with her all day to see how it goes. after the deliveries, i was ok. now the ciabatta is done and the pain is starting again. more pills? seriously? seriously. all these stops to take more pills can be a pain. can i get my aleve back? for my pain, i want my aleve. get all day minor arthritis pain relief with an easy open cap.

11:29 pm
11:30 pm
welcome back. before the break we were having a good discussion about illegal immigration, how it's going to play with the hispanic vote. i want to turn to john king the numbers. >> anderson, this is an issue that's hurt the republicans in the general election. but mr. trump is on the right ground, if you will, when it comes to the early states in the primaries. we showed this number earlier. i want to show you once again, when it comes to illegal immigration in the state of iowa which vote first, donald trump who says build a wall and deport those undocumented has a 32 point lead among the other republicans in the state of iowa. he leads my 32 points on immigration. when he says throw hem out and
11:31 pm
build a wall, he has strong support in iowa. if you're somebody else, can you close the gap with donald trump. the national polls if you look at the top five, trump and carson up here, carson and trump on the same page. rubio, he supports legal status. he's down here. so is jeb bush. cruz who is drafting with trump on immigration is down here as well. trump own this is issue when it comes right now. and i showed you the iowa numbers where trump leads on immigration. he's still at the top of the pack. rubio and cruz down here. if you're thinking can you make up ground, maybe new hampshire. independents a vote. a recent poll this week had immigration ranked second. it keeps coming up, an anti-amnesty argument. trump is way ahead in new hampshire as the moment. nationally and in iowa, pretty
11:32 pm
much tied with carson. he's way ahead in new hampshire and kasich argues for status. rubio as well. they're all way down here. those making the case that the republican needs to change its ways and have a path to legal status, a lot of ground to make up against trump, especially when it comes to new hampshire. >> what do you make in order to win hispanic voters, which is necessary in order to win the white house, talking act depobo deporting and building a wall isn't going to get you there? >> i think there's different ways of looking at it. the democrats sea te the issue a way of relating to voters not. it is about rule of law. it is about our expansive welfare programs and jobs. it is about national security. and it's all wrapped into this single issue of people coming
11:33 pm
into the country illegally. so it is much bigger than this one issue and republicans talk about it. i think they should infuse all those elements into it. you see republicans starting to do that more. i think donald trump really was the first one to do it on jobs on the national stage. and you're going to see more of that. until we get an understanding, this is why republicans care so much about this issue. democrats are going to pretend like it's about hating hispanics. clearly it's not. >> there's a bill in the senate that had two-thirds of senate support sitting in the house. this bill was comprehensive in nature. both republicans and democrats, rubio had his hands on it before he took them off. i think the democratic approach is the approach that most americans want us to choose. it's a frethreshold issue. the way in which the republicans discuss illegal immigration or undocumented workers, tearing families apart, demonizing people, many of them working
11:34 pm
hard to become citizens. >> i don't know any republican campaigning on tearing families part, and there's much more support for stopping the flow of illegal immigration than tieing that together with permanent legal status. >> the bottom line is there is no consensus in the republican party when it comes to immigration. there's a faction that feels strongly against illegal immigration. there's a faction that includes powerful groups like the chamber of commerce that includes a lot of evangelicals and christian voters that do support immigration reform, and also i said election night 2012, mitt romney self-deported from the white house. unless cruz and trump have a way to make up numbers, they can say bye bye. they're going to wish they had the 27% of hispanic vote that romney had. >> it's asian voters. they care about this issue.
11:35 pm
it's, you know, if you're in a state like ohio, it's more about the african american vote than it is the latino vote. >> the asian point is interesting. in 2012, asian voters went 75% to barack obama, and a lot of it had to do with the rhetoric in the republican party. the republican party impanelled a group to look at their toss in 2012, doob autop an autopsy, an concluded they needed to be more forward leaning on immigration reform and they had to reach out to younger voters and reach out to women and avoid women, some of these women's health issues, planned parenthood which was an issue last time. and it seems like all the things the document said the party shouldn't do, they're doing. >> to me, this is the argument that's been going on in the republican party for the last 60
11:36 pm
or 80 years. this is mitt romney and george romney and nelson rockefeller. it's all about getting along and being social. >> this is the kasich cruz argument that happened tonight. >> correct. and it is all tied in together. this is what's so frustrated for conservatives. they feel at the end of the day you have republicans that aren't there. it's not just on immigration. it's on the economy and all these other issues, and moving then left. >> but it's not just an ideal logical debate. it's a demographic debate. i'm doing this from memory but i'm pretty sure on the facts. george bush got 59% of the white vote when he was elected president, and it earned him 426 electoral votes. and romney drew 206, less than half. that's what dependents on the
11:37 pm
white votes gets you in the modern era. you can't win the white house. >> to talk to demographics, the country is changing. one of the things rubio was talking tonight and got in a fight with paul about it. the expansion of child tax credits. this is a big issue for rubio. he was very passionate in talking about it. he said family is the most important institution. we care about families. i want to do it. rand paul said to him how can you be a conservative and propose something like that that adds a trillion dollars as an expenditure. that's also front and center, about spending and how you spend money and immigration. and one of the things the debate did tonight was kind of just lay it out there for republican voters because they're going to have a big choice. >> i think you're right. i give these candidates a lot of credit for sticking to their convictions. there is a huge diversity of
11:38 pm
thought in the republican party when it comes to a lot of policy issues. it's not just immigration. so many. and i think that as voters, we are getting the ability to see the stark contrast and what they're offering. >> we need another quick break. a clash between rand paul and trump. did they stick to the facts. we have a reality check ahead. can a business have a mind? a subconscious. a knack for predicting the future. reflexes faster than the speed of thought. can a business have a spirit? can a business have a soul? can a business be...alive?

11:42 pm
welcome back. for more than two hours tonight, the republican candidates faced off in milwaukee in their third debate. at times they clashed, disagrees with each other forcefully. when the debate heated up, did they stick to the facts. we have a reality check on one of those confrontations. >> one of the hardest confrontations came when donald trump took exception to a trade deal, and rand paul took exception to trump. >> the ttp is a horrible deal. it is a deal that is going to
11:43 pm
lead to nothing but trouble. it's a deal that was designed for china to come in as they always do, through the back door and totally take advantage of everyone. >> hey, you know we might want to point out china is not part of this deal. it's true. >> yeah. china was very specifically left out of this deal. part of the plan here was that by leaving china out, it would blunt their ability to use their massive economy to push around smaller nations with smaller economies. so what is trump talking about here? we were tempted to say what he said was fall. we're going to talk about true and misleading. he talked about currency. what he said was questionable. what rand paul said was absolutely true in this exchange. you can find out more about this and many more of them by going to our website,
11:44 pm
cnn.comrealitycheck. one of the sharpest smack downs of the night except what you're hearing from your panel there. >> reality check from the debate itself and how the moderators did. you'll recall the complaints about the last debate, the cnbc debate. you'll also recall trump called the event tonight elegant. our senior media correspondent is in milwaukee. brian, certainly the rnc, i spoke with sean spicer, they seemed pleased as well. >> the consensus here, fox had a much better night than cnbc. that is a low bar. there was a low bar set by the cnbc debate because the reviews were unanimously bad. tonight i'm hearing from journalists is they're wishing for tougher questions and maybe too many softballs from the moderators. that maybe they want too soft and didn't follow up enough. there being said, we heard a lot
11:45 pm
from the candidates and there was a lot of talk time. look at the talk time for all the candidates. they all got at least nine minutes. the moderators were lenient and let them speak. they didn't encourage too much back and forth. it was a success for fox business. the reviews will be mostly positive, i think, come morning, and the campaigns here, the candidates and their aids are happy with the way they were treated. >> it was interesting. there were a number of opportunities where it was clear one candidate said something, they could have turned to another candidate who has been publicly on the record raising questions. carson was asked about his biography. he would have gone to trump who has been critical raising questions about cars ton ton to they were looking to get a fight
11:46 pm
going, he could have done that, turned to donald trump. they clearly made a decision, probably before this began, they weren't going to do that, most likely bu likely because they wanted this to be in contrast to the other debate. >> it was a clear choice. there is some personal drama. one of the moderators used to work at cnbc, another used to run cnbc. there was a desire to show cnbc how to have a great debate, and by that debate, i think the fox folks feel like they had a good night. i think it's a reminder that these debates are for gop primary voters. the democrats who are watching are probably yelling at the tv because they want more followup and tougher questioning at certain points. for the gop base watching the debate, those viewers tend to be more happy with how it goes because they see their candidates being respected in front of what is likely 10

we are back to get some final thoughts. . >> we haven't said too much about rand paul. i wouldn't call it a breakout moment, but i thought he had a good night. he has not run in the shadow of his father. but he was much more the isolationist tonight and didn't push back when rubio called him such. i thought it was significant. >> i think the trend lines that we've seen are going to continue and what struck me tonight about this debate is that there are two candidates with distinctive messag messages. that's rubio and cruz. they'll be factors. >> even though they're polling at 12 % or so, you see them rising and trump and carson falling in.
11:52 pm
>> that's the predicate. now, you know they've defied gravity for a long time here. >> i guess i don't understand. why would donald trump all of a sudden fall off the map. >> i don't think he'll fall off the map. i any he has a core and that core is probably about half of what he has now. that will never leave him. is he going to be satisfied being second or third, losing primaries, losing caucuses? i don't think he allows for that. i think at some point he could leave the race if he doesn't continue to lead it. >> i think that's right. rubio and cruz. i do think there's sort of warning signs emerging in terms of rubio. not only on immigration reform on this child tax credit as well, and on this, just like the deal of whether or not he's a real conservative. also in terms of his debate presentation. i think he's good at talking points and saying talking points with a great deal of conviction,
11:53 pm
but often times if you go back and read what he said, there not much there. there's mention of his family, there's a restatement of what the question was. i think cruz is a fantastic debater. i think if you get cruz and rubio on a debate stage, that would be something to say. >> i don't know where kasich goes now. i think kasich as a general election appeal, but within the republican party, he's fighting the fight. he's always fought, and he seems to be on the losing side of that. >> interesting. >> if this race does come down to senator cruz and rubio, that would be an overwhelming victory for the grass roots movement which got hem elected with the backing of the club for growth, the people that have been fighting the washington for so long. >> look, man, if you're going to have us up until one in the
11:54 pm
morning, you'd better give me something more than water in this cup. we're going to start to protest here. look, i think it was a very good debate, a substantial debate. i think republican voters are getting an opportunity to see diverse policy proposals, diverse personalities on that stage. i think the lesser the -- the fewer candidates was an improvement. i think it was a good night for jeb bush because it was a make or break night for beb jush j and he lives to fight another day. he needs to improve and build on this, but he now has a chance to do so. the road would have been bumpier if he didn't deliver. tonight i think he did. from rubio and cruz, they're expert debaters, and i think they were tonight. >> my thoughts are a little different tonight. donald trump made a big deal
11:55 pm
about veterans n. it's now the morning of veterans day. none of us would be able to be here, much less the people on the stage be able to do it if it hadn't been for those folks, and we owe them a debt of thanks. >> i agree with that. the republicans again fail to understand how important the issue of raising the wage to average americans who need their wages lifted. ben carson will continue to be vetted. tonight he said eighty percent of black youth is unemployed. that's gone down. i doubt seriously these young african americans, male and female, want to work for a sub standard wages as ben carson said. he needs to be vetted, and he will be vetted. and one last thing. we talked a lot this elegant evening about a lot of things, but we didn't talk about the improving economy under president obama. i want to give president obama
