    Anyone watching? Regarding the taxes, this is probably one area where Bachman know what's she talking about. And once again Perry's plan is not going to be ready for a few more days.

    Romney is owning everyone's asses. Bachmann looks like a lunatic more and more every time she speaks, even if she was right on the anchor baby issue. Perry is fading quickly and is looking like "me too" candidate.

    Cain isn't doing too shabby. Santorum makes me vomit.

    Ron Paul gets caught in petty arguments and I wish he would stay with the big picture.

    Perry is fading a bit, but he started off pretty strongly this time. Gingrich is great, but unelectable. Cain just doesn’t have much in the way of depth. Paul has faded years ago. I hate to leave this to head to the gym, but my boobs are important too.

    This one overall has been really good and I’ll pick up the rest on the rerun later tonight and XM in the car on the way to the gym.

    Ok that's it. Into the car or I'll suffer saggy boobs, and at my age that's an ever present danger under the best of circumstances.

    This bunch is an overall embarassment to the Republican party of Reagan, in this years climate even Reagan would be considered a RINO. Surely they can do better than just one viable candidate like Romney.

    Opinions are just based on performances and how candidates voiced their ideas.

    Perry should let everyone else attack Romney. Perry gets slammed by Romney at every instance and turns into a stammering kid. I think this was a knockout punch. Not sure if Perry will stay at double digits or even climb back if he is lowered beyond ten percent which seems very possible.

    Santorum had good attacks, Ron Paul had a few jabs, and even Newt decided to attack a little (I think he was vying for vice president until he saw how Cain leaped in the polls).

    Bachman needs to leave the talking points alone. She is too repetitive.

    Cain remains neutral. I don't think he is going to plummet or see another grand rise based on this debate. He deflected reasonably well, but floundered on the negotiation with terrorists. He has to get better at not giving two conflicting answers.

    I say Romney wins, Cain held his own, and Perry was the big loser. However, it looked like Ron Paul might angle to take the Occupy Wall Street movement or at least extend a hand. Many independent voters there which may love his message. He just has to get them to listen and more importantly, vote.

    David Gergen summed it up best for me tonight!

    "There was only one real winner here tonight after this debate and the show. The Obama camp should be celebrating."


    What I watched tonight was an American travesty. We are NO different from any other country on the planet. Tonight we just witnessed the UNexceptionalism of the USA.
    What a bunch of clowns.. I havent laughed this hard at a comedy of bufoons in years!

    I still don't think anyone has it all together quite like the very seasoned and polished Mitt Romney. Rick Perry looked like he wanted to hit someone. If he called Herman Cain "Brother" one more time I was going to throw something at the TV. Newt Gingrich is just good in the mix because, as if he knows he isn't going to win, he does a great job of keeping his opponents as a whole on message and in line. I think he'd be a great V.P. because he is arguably the smartest man on the stage. Ron Paul just isn't realistic, likable as some of his ideas are. Cain's 9-9-9, while a good catch-phrase, just isn't holding water with anyone else on the stage -- and that in itself is problematic. Rick Santorum & Michelle Bachmann need to basically just go away. Romney by a mile in this debate, with Herman Cain & Gingrich showing strong performances.

    I think Perry was far more aggressive tonight. Santorum was just a prick most of the time.

    Gingrich’s recommendation that during the election to have a series of Lincoln Douglas style debates was a good one. Of course that’s one that Gingrich would be extremely well suited for.

    I know he’s unelectable, but if I had to choose a number one tonight, it would have to be Gingrich with Romney second. Perry looked like it was fight time.

    THIS was pretty much the nastiness of the debate.

    Snide and bitter. Not one of those folks deserved any serious consideration.

    But my best guess is that Romney and Cain will team up for the general. Comedy to come.
