My thoughts on the debate, I think the strategic move for Romney people in crowd to be nice to Newt was cute. Newt proved that when he is not attacked he makes good points. Paul remains the same and I think gains in every debate because of the way he portrays himself, I think Santourm didn’t have good visuals but gave complete answers. He does better on substance than Style. Romney was crisp and remains so. The question remains if people actually believe him.
10:00 p.m. Am I the only guy who noticed the weird (How to identify a Mason via Monty Python) handshake. between Paul and Santorum?
9:51 p.m. I like the last question.
9:37 p.m. “As long as your an enemy of the US you are safe” Gingrich nails it.
9:34 p.m. Santorum states Syria is a puppet state of Iran, it’s absolutely true. Strangely enough Paul was right about the declaration of war bit, not about Iran in general
9:30 p.m. “Find the Biden position and do the opposite and you’ll be right 100% of the time.” Santorum mentions the green revolution.
9:22 p.m. I never thought I’d hear Ron Paul quote the “just war” theory of the church.
9:05 p.m. I must admit that Santorum’s answer on Arlen is something that never occurred to me. A much better answer than I had.
8:55 p.m. Government control of services lead to tyranny. Next having a good night.
8:50 p.m. The GOP candidates are hitting the “contraception” question out of the park, Newt and Mitt on Religious Freedom, Paul on immorality, and Rick on the ills of pre-marital sex.
8:45 p.m. Coming up faith and immigration, they’ll get to fast and furious sometime after a discussion of subsidies for Unicorn breeding.
8:41 p.m. Paul having a good debate.
8:39 p.m. good exchange on bailouts, Gingrich has better debates when Romney isn’t targeting him.
8:34 p.m. good question on auto bailout
8:31 p.m. Santorum refuses to pander on earmarks
8:22 p.m. The Catholic church is pulled out of adoption in Massachusetts, is Mitt really claiming social conservatism in Massachusetts? Please.
8:16 p.m. Gotta love Paul’s answer to the “fake” question.
8:09 p.m. Opening question on debt, good!
8:07 p.m. Good opening by Romney best of the 4
That means I’m putting in entries when the mood strikes me.
