7:35 am
so who had a good night in last night's debate? i thought jeb bush had the best debate so far. more than holding his own in several exchanges with donald trump. and appearing more animated than he has in the past. marco rubio recovered from his disasterous outing in the last debate in new hampshire and scored well at times it canly in slugfest with ted cruz over immigration. but for me the biggest take away was trump's overly aggressive performance which featured interruption, finger pointing and repeated accusations of lying against other candidates. he was also repeatedly booed by the crowd. and the biggest danger for trump came when he staked out least left leaning position on the war in iraq and planned parenthood unlikely to play well with south carolina very conservative gop primary electorate. let's put it this way if his showing last night doesn't suppress his south carolina poll numbers then nothing will. jon keller at large, wbz this morning.

8:33 am
hampshire primary has come and gone. south carolina is heating up and that was a very interesting democratic debate on thursday night. let's talk about it all. with our guest analysts from primary night back for an encore performance former boston globe com i am joanna weiss and veteran political strategist and analyst charlie manning. thanks for being here and thanks for the great job you did with us on primary night. good to see you both. >> thank you it was fun. >> let's tart with -- start with the democrats. for meet the telling moment in -- for me, the telling moment was hillary clinton pointing out that president obama then senator obama took more wall street money than any democrat ever in a campaign when he ran. and it didn't stop him from backing pursuing extra regulation of wall street. bernie sanders really briteled when she accused him of not being sufficiently loyal to the
8:34 am
given the large number africanperson voters in south carolina and general -- american voters in south carolina and general democrats forward. >> it's dangerous territory he is getting into because yes, he had tremendous support in new hampshire i mean unpredictable almost the level of support. >> for sanders. >> for bernie sanders yeah. but, this is a white state. as is iowa and now he is into the rest of the country and he has to appeal to minority voters and walks the fine line with criticizing obama for you know what a lot of people i think view as progress particularly on the subject of health care. so aid good position -- it's a good position for hillary clinton to be in and psh him on that. >> and charlie over the combined 200 years of following politics, i've seen anger votes. but i've seen a lot of voting where voters who may be angry are a little reluctant to go too far with change.
8:35 am
>> absolutely and there's no reason for sanders to do this. obama is not running again. when obama comes up you should say he's been a great president and he got a lot done and now we have got to move forward and this is the direction i want to take the country. if we polled obama among democratic pry harry voters, his favoritability would be 70%, 80%. people like him. he is their guy they don't have a lot on the national scene anymore. so, there's no reason and it opens the window for hillary clinton to say why wouldn't you -- why would you criticize president obama doesn't make sense. >> you saw her walking the tightrope saying we want change but saying you know president obama picked me and presented herself as a continuation of the obama administration. >> but how can sanders do what you are suggesting when his critique is blistering. weert worst in the world in -- we are the worst in the world
8:36 am
bleak picture and doesn't say because of the republicans. i mean, i will give him credit for at least intellectual honesty. he is equal opportunity barber. but. >> you can do both. there's no plus for him to criticize president obama and it opens up a door for hillary to wrap her arms around obama who is the most popular figure still in the democratic party. >> in the meantime, we have to take a break but joanna briefly, he certainly is on message. >> he is so on message. you know in some ways in the way marco rubio was in the previous debate that got him in trouble. he stayed to the stump speech and got back to his economic issue. but the question for him is, does he have a platform to push beyond that central economic issue and if he he doesn't, when does that start to hurt him. >> next up republicans. we will talk about them and what happens next when we
8:37 am

8:39 am
to figure out most checking accounts can now cost you hundreds every year. but a dcu free checking account is still well... free welcome back we are talking with election analysts joanna weiss and charley manning let's talk about republicans. viewers know we tape on fryers so we don't have the benefit -- fridays so we don't have the benefit of seeing seat night can be saturday night debate but i am sure it's going to be interesting and it does appear based on what we saw during the week that finally, trump is the singular almost singular focus
8:40 am
let's start with you charley. he seems to be trying to tone down his act and said today no more cursing at rallies and we will see how long that hold up. what's that all about and is this really now a test for him? >> he got the first win under his belt. remember this is the first time he has run for office and you can see how happy he was on tuesday night. but now the other candidates figured out remember in new hampshire he had bush attacking rubio and trump basically slipped through without anyone going after him now in south carolina we are seeing all the other candidates are going against trump rubio is attack him bush is attacking him cruz is attacking him and kasich is attack him and he is the focal pointch the plan before this was all right if i -- point. the plan is before it was if i could walk off the other guys i can take him one-on-one but now they are saying if we let him get away we may never catch
8:41 am
so he will be under a lot of fire for the next week. >> in from right in the form of cruz and left or his left at least although i don't know if they are to the left of him but from the establishment as well. >> i think the establishment is better term for it because some ways he is to the left of those candidates. he is a very iconic classic politician who happens to be in the republican party this time. you get the sns cohave chosen anything but as we discussed --sense he could have chosen anything but he has a floor and ceiling and everybody has to exploit that. he has the favorable unfavorable issue where lots of peef people love him and lots don't and i -- people love him and lots of don't and i think the goal is to consolidate i don't know if he is the right guy to be president for the establishment side. >> i will ask anyway it may sound odd is it risky for trum to stop cursing. if he tries to chang now isn't that what got him where he is.
8:42 am
trump and his supporters are passionate about him and love him and don't care what he says when the media points out flip- flops and they say i don't carried trump. so he is solid. the only way that can happen is if the others can peel away some of the folks. >> final word to you joanna. >> i think charlie is right all -- charley is right although he made smart moves it turns outalong the way by saying things that made every one in the establishment left and right blanche. so if he gives up that ace card right now i don't know how much farther he will willg. >> he is brilliant identifying hot buttonish unanimous jumping on them early. one question is what might be the next issue? what's the next act? ed. >> i going to be the economy. we have seen the market this exit poll numbers from new hampshire people are not happy with the economy. and south carolina probably is economically. but it's going to be the economy. if he is smart enough to jump
8:43 am
perfect place. >> charley joanna thanks very much and we will look forward to checking back with you as the campaign wears on. thanks for joining me right now i will throw it back to my colleagues for more wbz news. >> from politics to the weather. the ice cold weather today. that's what we are talking about. >> bitter lows out there. way below zero. and in fact we are getting reports 10 degrees to 20 degrees below and even plus that in western mass. we will put together the details actually of those coldest low temperatures that we have had across the board and post it to cbs boost oin pop -- boost -- cbsboston.com. and if you are heading out, frostbite can set in in 10 minutes if you have ebb supposed -- exposed skin and you are going to be out for long duration maybe to even and poor puppies they will on the dog. if you have those or at least a sweater. don't stay out too long and hopefully they are outside.
