Donald Trump At GOP Debate Says Jeb Bush Threatened To 'Moon' People

Donald Trump At GOP Debate Says Jeb Bush Threatened To 'Moon' People

Bush, the former governor of Florida, coming off a fourth-place finish in New Hampshire, is relying on a a strong ground organization and family history in SC.

Ben Carson, who's been lagging in the polls and struggling to get into the conversation, was happy just to have a more prominent turn at the mic. There were no weapons of mass destruction.

Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson is fighting to stay in the mix in SC.

"I have said I will not do it at all, because if I say a word that's a little bit off color, a little bit, it ends up being a headline", Trump said.

Trump said he was certain Obama would make a nomination whether Republicans like it or not and called on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to slam the brakes.

"It's called delay, delay, delay", Trump said.

He disagreed with the idea that he has to beat Kasich and Bush before taking on frontrunner Donald Trump.

On the metric of being "prepared" to be president, Trump and Cruz do well, and Jeb Bush and John Kasich do relatively well, but Marco Rubio trails in this regard, suggesting that last week's debate in New Hampshire may have had an impact.

He made his most blistering attacks against Bush and his brother, former President George W. Bush, who has many admirers in the Republican establishment. "I am sick and exhausted of him going after my family", he forcefully declared. "And while Donald Trump was building a reality TV show, my brother was building a security apparatus to keep us safe".

Trump lashed back, saying it was under Bush's watch that the World Trade Centre was attacked on September 11, 2001. On his pledge to cut his use of profanity he said, "I've always done it just as a way of emphasis and had fun doing it. But running in politics we can't do it".

Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio have stepped up their aggressive campaigning and Trump criticism.

Raise your hand if you thought a year ago that the Republican front-runner in February 2016 would spend a debate tearing into George W. Bush over his terrorism record.

Rubio, speaking on a variety of Sunday shows, said the Texas senator has developed a bad habit of saying things that are not true; Cruz says he is the most consistent conservative in the Republican race. Mr Cruz and Mr Trump emerged from the first two voting contests with a victory apiece and appear positioned to compete for a win in the first Southern primary.

Trump's line of attack was clearly meant to remind voters of Bush's family legacy and revive hesitations about installing a political dynasty in the White House.

"I also feel I'm a common-sense conservative, because some of the views I don't agree with", Trump said.

To make everything even more surreal, this sound byte from Fox News talking head Tucker Carlson was actually lucid: "The question is: does it help when voters learn that Jeb Bush is George W. Bush's brother?"

Saturday night's debate was the last prior to this week's SC primary. "I'm so proud of the campaign we ran, the people that ran it with me and all those who gave us their support and confidence along the way". His appearance was a continuation of Mrs. Clinton's efforts to woo black voters, which has intensified following her 22-point loss to Mr Sanders in last week's New Hampshire primary. "It's like that saying: 'I can talk about my mom but you can't..."
