I'll say this. I've watched about seven debates this year.. the GOP
and the Dem debates. And let me say this. The GOP candidates... much
funnier. Better personality.
And why again won't the Dems participate in a FoxNews debate???
Note to the GOP candidates. ENOUGH WITH THE "RONALD REAGAN" NAME
DROPPING. For the love of Pete. This is ridiculous. We're not
invoking the spirit of the former President. It's time to move on. I
feel like Rick Pitino when he coached the Celtics! "RONALD REAGAN IS
NOT WALKING THROUGH THAT DOOR, FANS.
Now then - Giuliani didn't do anything to hurt himself tonight. He
got most of the airtime, he and Fred Thompson pretty much dominated
the night. I don't know that I am completely in love with the numbers
of questions to the upper and lower tier candidates. When Rudy goes
after Hillary - it's good TV.
Fred did 1,000 times better this time around. And he didn't look like
Death from Family Guy.
I am less and less impressed with Mitt Romney every time I see him.
He just seems too "political" - too polished. He seems like the GOP's
answer to Hillary and Edwards.
Mike Huckabee. Honest ... precise... well spoken... with solid ideas,
he is did absolutely fantastic for the little amount of time that he
had. It's a shame that he doesn't have the name recognition of the
Big Three - because he is absolutely outstanding.
Huckabee also landed the lines of the night - talking about "there's
nothing funny about Hillary being President"- and all the baby boomer
hippies getting ready to go on Medicare and getting "free drugs".
Tom Tancredo might as well not have been there - but he made some
strong poignant points.
I like John McCain. Really I do. But I can't see McCain as the
leader of the free world. Plus... his domestic spending ideas- and the
McCain/Feingold plan - put him on the backburner for me.
Ron Paul. Oh, what a joy to see Ron Paul flame out tonight - his
complete and utter lack of a foreign policy really showed tonight -
drawing countless "BOOS" from the crowd.
The man is living in the 1700's and clearly has no idea of the threat
But the night belonged to Mike Huckabee - who is clearly the candidate
who comes off as most presidential.
*** Mike Huckabee
