US Republicans spar in fiery debate

US Republicans have traded blows in a heated presidential debate in Colorado that featured several angry exchanges.Frontrunners Donald Trump and Ben Carson, with no political experience, were under attack from the start.Ohio Governor John Kasich condemned their “fantasy tax plans” and added: “We can’t elect someone who doesn’t know how to do the job,”Mr Carson, a retired neurosurgeon who has edged past Mr Trump in national polls, had a quiet night in Boulder.His tax plan, which is based on biblical tithes, was decried by Mr Kasich, who also dismissed Mr Trump’s plan to deport 11 million undocumented immigrants and build a wall on the Mexico border.
Political friendships were strained by some of the testy exchanges, notably one between former Florida Governor Jeb Bush and Florida Senator Marco Rubio.Mr Bush urged Mr Rubio, once his protege, to resign from the Senate because of his poor voting record.The media were also in the firing line – Texas Senator Ted Cruz got the night’s biggest applause when he attacked the hosts, CNBC for stirring confrontation.”The questions that have been asked so far in this debate illustrate why the American people don’t trust the media. This is not a cage match.”
