Kristol: After Last Night’s Debate, GOP Voters Could Say Enough Is Enough with Trump

‘Maybe people will focus on can and should he be president of the United States? And I think Republican primary voters will say no’

KRISTOL: "And the commander-in-chief issue, which Donald Trump raised central — squarely last night by saying that George Bush knowingly lied us into the war in Iraq. The Republican primary — it’s one thing to say the war was a mistake, knowingly lied us into the war in Iraq? ... Are Republican primary voters going to accept this? I believe that Donald Trump’s candidacy was dealt — and I said this before and I’ve been wrong — but I really do believe last night could be a moment where finally Republican voters say enough — enough with the being in, you know, engaged. Trump’s interesting. He’s saying some things I like. He’s sticking it to those politicians. And finally, maybe people will focus on can and should he be president of the United States? And I think Republican primary voters will say no."
