This is a GREAT debate - enthusiastic crowd, combative candidates, superb moderator. Romney edging it for me tonight. #CNNDebate

I don’t think Romney has much of a chance of winning the Obamacare vs Romneycare debate in the fall.

Newt has no strategy to win this debate. Romney is well coached & has played terrific offense. Santorum and Paul fighting to be relevant.
Peter Hamby @PeterHambyCNN
GOP source sends along the buzz inside the debate theater: “Huge pro Romney energy”
Taegan Goddard @politicalwire
Romney’s new debate coach is making a big difference
Larry Sabato @LarrySabato
If Santorum had a chance to win FL, his debate performance would be helping him.

Housewives of Washington DC has concluded. We now return to your regularly scheduled debate.

And now for the “who loves Reagan the most” part of the debate #cnndebate
I am gonna cry oh wait here comes an issue, nope it was a feint.
wolfe scores one for the dark side.
Santorum is doing well tonight. His skewering of Romeny on Romneycare and the people who pay the fine instead of high priced insurance premiums had me cheering.
Newt needs to grab the opportunity had briefly had earlier about Romney’s negative ads against him. Romney quickly state that his people run them and he didn’t know what they were.
Newt needs to respond that we don’t need a President who doesn’t know what his people are doing and the left hand is blind to the right.
This could be the worse debate yet and there have been many bad ones.
Romney claims he never voted for a democrat when a republican was on the ballot.
Reference to movie: Groundhog Day.
Can Cuba be sunk?
Another easy question - For or against Cuba?
Wow - that Reagan&Newt thing really fizzled for Romney. However many millions of bucks that were spent by the PACs on that was just wasted.
Gingrich states that Gingrich endorses Paul Psongas.
Mittens hedges his Psongas vote.
Mitt is slick.
Yes I voted for dem but never when another Republican was on the ballot.
Calling all Romneybots, could I get a translation on that.
I want to know what twee would each of the candidates be (if he or she were a twee, of course.)
Romney fumbled on Reagan question.
Can it tip over?
Yeah... or ask Romney if his blind trust is running his campaign ads?
Thank goodness we have a REAL question from an audience member AGAIN. Wonder if they’re as frustrated as we are.
