Herman Cain was the clear victor according to a Fox New channel Focus Group who was extremely impressed with his 'non-empty suit', direct talk and solution-minded responses to questions.

Your impression of the GOP? Of the candidates who debated?

Ron Paul and Gary Johnson appealed to me less government more freedom
Cain was going for the whole i'm not a politician thing here's my common folk ideas
Santorum has this angry more moral than thou act not a fan
Pawlenty...zzzz.... who???

here's something of interest with Cain, he was former Chairman and Member of the Board of Directors for the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City

The guy who said in the debate that "The Terrorists will kill us all"

Shocking that they chose him, what a goof that guy is.

I have an idea!

Ron Paul should use Herman Cain's former position at the Fed against him! We all know that Ron wants to end the Fed, right? What better way to make Cain look bad than to point out just how much the Fed infringes upon the constitution?

I watched last night and I was not too impressed with any of the candidates. Though a good idea or two may have been tossed out, those ideas were pipe dreams (i.e., Paul's desire to legalize drugs, Cain's 23% sales tax plan)

Ron Paul - Was the best of the night, still is a poor speaker. Probably too radical for mainstream America.

Gary Johnson - Soft spoken, nice guy, but did not come across as having strong leadership skills

Cain - Has a 3-point plan for everything...the same 3-point plan. He is not a Washington insider, but most of his thoughts lacked real substance.

Santorum - Holier than thou, you can have liberties so long as they are in line with my beliefs, little substance and no originality. (Worst of the night by leaps and bounds)

Pawlenty- Consistently went over his allotted time which was annoying, dodged questions, very robotic in his movement (a la Al Gore), lacked originality or original thought.

After watching this debate, I don't see any of these guys getting the Republican nomination. But what do I know...I'm not a Republican. Just an American.
