The Hazel O'Leary comment stands, however.

She's just nuts and unsuited for such a position :)

Thank you. It is working well enough for me to get the idea of what is going on. It certainly is better than nothing.

Perry has a good heart. That’s the most you can say for him.

He's a natural on late night TV. Maybe he'll follow in Huckabee's footsteps. He's not afraid to laugh at himself.

Thank you CCC....but the sound is breaking up ...will have to read the transcript later. I am disappointed in CBS AGAIN

Both the CBS and National Journal audio/video links are breaking up constantly. This is SO ridiculous and frustrating. This IS 2011, right? What can't they get this to work? I have a brand-new fast computer, so the problem isn't on my end.

Santorum asks about federal spending and debt as a national security issue. What would you eliminate or return to the states?

Romney says he'll cap spending at 20%. Kill ObamaCare. Send Medicaid back to the states growing at inflation plus 1%. NEA, PBS, etc. are nice but can't afford to borrow. Reduce fed personnel at least 10%.

Huntsman endorses the Ryan plan. Would ship medicaid and education to the states.

Newt says four interlocking things: (stream cut so I got three) Energy, Manufacturing, Science & Manufacturing. And the rest of his answer was lost to the lousy stream. (grrr)

I think it takes some time for the feed to get ahead of itself. I haven’t had a stops and starts for quote a while now.

I thought several times that Perry didn’t answer the question asked of him, but instead rattled on about something else.

He's going to be too busy as President for much late night TV.

What is with Huntsman’s choice of color? Pink tie? What color is that suit?

LOL! For a moment I misread your post as "Runtsman."

As far as the tie -- did he play wide receiver at Penn State?

Cheers!

Peggy Noone in this morn WSJ:

Mitt Romney, of course, did well, and continues to deserve an award for Heroic Self Discipline in the Cutaway Shot. He looks at the other candidates with a benign, encouraging look, as if he'll take no pleasure in it at all when he squashes them like bugs.

Wow, they’re taking on Ron Paul.

Having Ron Paul holding forth in a Republican debate is a trifle misleading to the uninformed viewer. Not to mention embarrassing to the party.

” Perry is doing very well tonight.”

I thought so, also.
Of course most voting Americans are not watching this, so they will get their impressions on how the debate went from the media.

I thought several times that Perry didn’t answer the question asked of him, but instead rattled on about something else.

Those weren't thoughts, they were observations. La Raza Rick has a script and his handlers have obviously told him to stick to that script regardless the question. TO some that equates to "he is doing a great job". To me it screams he is trying his hardest to not make a fool of himself for the umpteenth time.
