It went pretty much as I expected, so no real surprises there.
Ron Paul and Mitt Romney came out on top as expected. Let's face it, Paul blew Romney out of the water with each and every one of his responses. The
man had his game on. However, I cannot believe how much they catered to Romney during the debate! I swear he had more talk time then any of the other
candidates -- could they have been any less subtle?!?!
Again, Bachmann came out as the wildcard with the tough-as-nails sound bites. There is no freakin' way Palin can hold a candle to this woman. She is
going to be outclassed on all fronts if she even tries. Perhaps that's why she's holding off at the moment.
Gingrich came across better than I expected. Don't mean a thing though. The man's going to sink like a stone when it comes to picking a nominee. If
anything, his role will be to rally the GOP faithful.
Is it me, or did it seem like Cain was nothing more than a series of sound bites? He talked a good line... he said what people wanted to hear (or what
he thought they wanted to hear)... however, I'm not convinced he's got what it takes to lead the party line. I'm going to hold off on further
judgement until the race shapes up a bit more.
Pawlenty and Santorum need to step up their game big time. I wouldn't be surprised if they're one of the first to drop.
Can't wait to read how the analysts and pundits break the debate down.
