What I saw I liked but I didn’t tune in until Michelle Bachman. Guess I’ll have to find the rest on a re-run or Hulu.

For the closing statements I have to say that Newt’s was the most galvanizing.

Just another anti-Perry thread. I’ll bow out.

Rick Santorum is my “present” choice after losing Herman Cain today. It is hard to believe we don’t yet have a candidate that shines above the rest.

We had an entire live thread with comments by people who cared.

I guess you think your comments are so much more important than those, that they need their own thread.

I liked the format. I think it particularly suited Michelle Bachmann. I tuned in too late to hear Santorum. I liked the AGs as questioners. They offered an interesting perspective and not the same old rhetoric that you get from the talking heads.

I don’t have a TV, either, so I look for comments from blogs and Freepers, so lay off the criticism. Some of us don’t want al the trash coming into our house. We did not raise our kids on TV and none of them own one either, except our daughter. She has no service to it, only watches DVDs.

My favorite closing clip from Perry,”And my purpose was never to be President of the United States”. I can see that.

The best format that can be devised, everyone has the same amount of time and most important the media wasn’t asking the questions. I was a Ron Paul supporter both at the start and the finish.

His performance thus far is consistant with that lack of purpose.

What a rube.

That's good to hear. I guess there were no uncomfortable pauses or flubs then. He must have fine tuned things to perfection.

I am struck by how much the candidates are all cookie cutter variation. Except for Paul they all think the solution is to “fix” the Government and make it “work”.

Other then Paul, none of them grasp that Government is the problem.

It is said the founding fathers considered that anyone who really wanted to be president was not fit to be president.

Perry, when asked what departments he would get rid of, immediately named several.

When asked if he would eliminate the department of education, he left no doubt.

Romney never gave a definitive answer. When asked about the department of education his reply was that he would keep it and change some things. Never said what things. Romney is more rino go along to get along.

That answer was more or less typical of the entire Romney presentation.

Gingrich, like Perry, had clear and positive answers as to what he would get rid of and what he would keep.

Question is whether or not you believe him.

I thought Perry did very well.

Bachman had some good moments but stumbled badly when asked how states would settle difficult questions involving pollution if left to their own. Completely unprepared on that topic.

Ron Paul happens to be right but he got too emotional and did not discuss 9/11 with clarity.

The reply he should have given: 9/11 never would have occurred if the agencies involved had done their job under the laws that existed at that time. The towel heads were all here illegally, no effort had been made to identify their purpose and to see that they were lawfully occupied. The FBI agent, female, who discovered the student at the flight school was told to shut up and butt out.

Firing a number of cabinet heads from the Justice Department to the local FBI and ICE offices would have put things right without the awful Patriot Act.

Rick Santorum did barely OK, but again he was too jazzed up, too emotional and did not for that reason give his best.

For my money it was Perry #1 and Newt #2.

Not sure who’s going to have the worst celebratory champagne hangover tomorrow-Romney or Axelrod - for having successfully railroaded Cain.

Although I’m ultimately going to vote for whoever runs against Obama (except Mitt), I will back Santorum until such time as a nominee is selected.

Newt, Perry and Bachmann were the best. Newt has the momentum so he’s probably the guy. I can live with any of the three.

You left out one very important point: Paul is an isolationist nutjob. I’ll take a “cookies-cutter” over a nut like Paul.

I thought Perry did very well. Also, FWIW, I recall Perry saying “Attorneys General.” I noticed it because I thought he would say what you heard. One of us is incorrect, but it’s no big deal.

But, I think this is a big deal: During a
recent Congressional speech, Zero referred to Biden as “Vice-President.” I believe Biden should have been referred to as “Mr. President.” The fact that the speech was before a joint session of Congress may make a difference (as opposed to speaking solely to the Senate), but I don’t think so. If I am correct on this, it reveals a fundamental misunderstanding of the Constitution. Color me not surprised.
