The Best Lines and Zingers From the Third Republican Debate
GOP candidates met in Boulder, Colorado for the third presidential debate.
— -- The third Republican debate hosted in Boulder, Colorado was not short on drama and memorable moments.
Here are some of the best lines and zingers said by some of the 10 candidates on stage:
When each candidate was asked to name a weakness, Mike Huckabee declared, "I don't really have any weaknesses that I can think of."
The former governor of Arkansas continued, "But my wife is down in the front and I’m sure if you would like to talk to her later she can give you more than you will ever be able to take care of."
Fiorina lit up the crowd when she said: "After the last debate I was told I didn't smile enough."
"His poll numbers tanked. That is why he is on the end," Trump said. "He got nasty, so you know what? You can have him."
"I read the editorial with great amusement, it’s actually evidence of the bias that exists in the American media today," Rubio said.
Rubio went on to argue that in the past the Sun Sentinel endorsed Democratic presidential candidates who've missed more votes in the Senate than him.
That's when Bush chimed in. The former Florida governor who Rubio views as a mentor "Just resign and let somebody else take the job."
"Someone convinced you attacking me is going to help you," Rubio countered back.
Cruz didn't attack any candidates on stage, but fought back against the CNBC moderators.
"The questions asked in this debate illustrate why the American people don't trust the media," Ted Cruz said.
The Texas senator didn't like the questions CNBC was asking the candidates: "The questions that are being asked shouldn't be trying to get people to tear into each other."
He also joked later in the debate with moderator Carl Quintanilla, offering, "I'll buy you tequila, or even famous Colorado brownies."
Bush also defended his plan that he'd cut spending 10 dollars for every dollar in tax increases.
"You find a Democrat that is for cutting spending ten dollars, I'll give them a warm kiss," Bush said.
“They should not automatically assume because you believe that marriage is between one man and one woman that you are a homophobe,” said Ben Carson, defending his views on marriage.
Though it was a GOP debate, Rubio delivered the toughest attack on Hillary Clinton tonight.
“Some of the Democrats who have the ultimate super PAC -- they're called the mainstream media. Last week, Hillary Clinton went before a committee she admitted she sent e-mails to her family saying hey, this attack in Benghazi was caused by Al Qaeda-like elements. She spent over a week telling the families of those victims and the american people that it was because of a video. The mainstream media is saying it was the greatest week in Hillary Clinton's campaign. It was the week she got exposed as a liar. On benghazi. But she has her super PAC helping her out - the American mainstream media."
It wasn't all animosity amongst the candidates. Mike Huckabee complimented Trump and even admitted, "I'm wearing a trump tie tonight."
