Stu Burguiere thought the first GOP debate held back in August was a relative success, even considering Trump’s absence.
The second GOP debate, however, was “a catastrophic failure,” he says.
“It was absolutely terrible – all they did was talk over each other the entire time; all of them made the same freaking decision that they needed to be more aggressive and yell about everything,” Stu reproves.
For example, all the candidates clearly “believe the path to the presidency is to yell at Vivek Ramaswamy,” which Stu can’t make sense of, given that Ramaswamy is likely “not going to be president … not at 38 years old.”
He was also unimpressed with Nikki Haley’s failed attempt to pull off the “Donald Trump schtick” by “[yelling] at everybody” and being “insulting for no reason.”
On a positive note, Stu thought Ron DeSantis performed well.
“I don't think DeSantis has had a lot of bad moments, and I don't know that he's done anything to separate himself from the rest of this pack,” he says.
When it comes to Tim Scott, who certainly took on an aggressive disposition, Stu has “seen enough.”
“He just does not seem like he's ready for this or able to do it very well,” he says.
“Pence–same thing … I just don’t see it.”
As for Ramaswamy, Stu thinks he has “a lot to add to the conversation” and is “clean with his language.”
“Now he is, at some level, doing an impersonation of a candidate,” Stu admits, “and I get that – that's a fair criticism of him, but he's not stupid, he’s not a dumb guy; he's a really smart guy, and, you know, he has something to add to the conversation.”
Doug Burgum, on the other hand, might have “a good record in North Dakota,” but “I don’t think [he] has any chance,” says Stu.
Chris Christie, whom one commenter hilariously refers to as “Krispy Kreme,” is similar to Burgum in that he has no chance whatsoever. However, Stu finds him “interesting,” although he admits that he’s “in the minority on this one.”
“He's way more entertaining than Pence, he's way more entertaining than Burgum, he's way more entertaining than Scott … I think he brings something better to this debate,” Stu admits.
In sum, Stu says he’d like to see DeSantis, Ramaswamy, Haley, and Christie back on the stage again.
“And obviously … Trump would be great if he decided to show up.”
