The Greatest Loser of the GOP Debate – Our Must-See List of Winners and Losers [video]

The third GOP debate produced some interesting results.

One Big Loser is agreed upon by everyone – the liberal CNBC moderators.

It was appalling.

They were obnoxious, arrogant, and biased in their questions. They showed contempt, not objectivity.

They insulted the candidates.

Not shocking, as they are an arm of the liberal NBC/MSNBC. But surprising that they never tried to be objective and ask questions of substance.

The good news? The candidates stepped up to the plate and called out the moderators’ ridiculous and insulting biases. Watch Chris Christie here, Rubio answering an attack from the moderators and Jeb Bush here, and Rubio again slamming the liberal mediahere.

And Ted Cruz did an amazing job exposing their liberal attacks; see here for this classic expose on how the moderators slanted the questions.

It all started with Donald Trump’s ideas being called “comic-book” and went downhill from there.

Here are the winners and other losers:
