All hail the last GOP debate! I watched the first 1 1/2 hours of it. Once again, Bachmann stood out as relentless. Perry did better but not that much better. I thought Newt got into a style of ‘explaining’ his positions instead of throwing them out as bombs. Doesn’t work for him. It got boring. Sort of like: oh, here we go again, they’re distorting my words, I have to set them right, so here’s what I really said blah, blah, blah. He’s too comfortable in his feisty skin.
Romney was on fire. His response to Newt’s criticism of Bain Capital deals was inspired, especially bringing up how many jobs were lost by Obama’s restructuring of GM. ‘You win some, you lose some.’
Fox must have really be chagrined by the flack it took from other media about putting down Ron Paul in their highly condescending coverage of his campaign because Ron got a lot of face time and used it well, making a strong case about why Iran is not a threat to the US.
In short, the debate was predictable, covered no new ground and hopefully all participants went home and took a long shower with lye soap. That’s what I’m going to do. The new meme out there: the ‘cootie’ defense.
