I'm rather shocked I didn't see a debate thread in this forum (or maybe there is, I just have a few tinkerbells on ignore). What did you guys think of the debate? I'll tell you what I liked - they didn't get into a pissing match and start calling each other out. They recognize that they all are working towards the same goal - getting rid of Oblame-a. Romney - looked pretty sharp. Cain - Out of his league, unfortunately. I like his succinct answers. Ron Paul - my personal favorite, but unfortunately lacks the ability to convey himself and his thoughts in a coherent, dumbed down, joe-the-plumber manner. He has the best solutions, but cannot get away from coming off like a crazy ol' coot. Pawlenty - Some interesting ideas, but cannot stop talking about himself. Bachmann - surprised me. Good answers, sometimes the failure to simply answer the question was annoying, but held to her principles. Newt - Not a lot of Newt action, but was very supportive of his fellow candidates and his deep knowledge of history and the constitution was obvious. Too bad about that baggage. Santorum - Nah. I'm sure the flaming will start momentarily on something I said. These are just my perceptions based on last night in a vacuum.
