Anyone else watch it last night? I admit to not watching closely - and I might have even dropped off to sleep for a moment or two - but all in all, it was more entertaining and interesting than I expected. Not being a Republican this time around I have no real dog in this fight, but I was the most (newly) impressed with good old Newt. I now understand why he's survived so many years in politics. I thought he did good taking on the media, if nothing else. Most disappointing was Huntsman. He was kind of a wash - nothing good nothing bad. Pretty much just nothing. Most surprising (to me, anyhow) was Paul and his stance on "oh, hey, let Iran have their nuke. Who are we to say they don't feel they need one," attitude. Least surprising was hearing Bachmann taking credit for the "chose your own lightbulb" law. (It failed.) Most annoying? That would bem without a doubt, the people asking the questions. They were, as Newt said, pointedly irrelevant. Plus, they tended to focus on asking the same people multiple questions while ignoring other candidates. I would have prefered to have one question asked and everyone give an onopportunity to answer that same question. Dumbest question? Asking Michelle Bachmann if she would be submissive to her husband if she were elected president. Sounds very "lame stream media" to me....I have been told repeatedly that Fox doesn't do that kind of thing. Thing which made me realize that if I am looking for a Republican who is serious about erasing the deficit that it's not going to be found in 2012? The shot of every hand in the air when asked who would turn down a debt deal which offered 10 dollars in budget cuts for every dollar of new tax revenue.
