I'm going to do something a little different tonight
in my Analysis of the Debates - by starting at the end
while I'm still fired up and the events are fresh in
I have to admit to missing perhaps 40 minutes - from
approximately 9:10 to 9:55 pm - but I Believe that I
have enough notes to sufficiently cover the Debates.
Rick Santorum closed out this Rousing session with:
The American Public needs to Decide Who Is The Best
Person To Take On President Obama - but then after
that I lost the Thread because - Rick - You Lost It.
Going from that Brilliant Statement to downhill real
fast by getting too Passionate and Anxious did you in.
And the Reason for that is folks is that RICK SANTORUM
SIMPLY IS NOT AND NEVER WILL BE THE ONE.
My advice - and it's too late for Rick - is for Mitt
Keep your Dignity and avoid Cr*p like:
Shining City On The Hill
Mitt: In the beginning you did so well.
~Best remark that I heard all night was when asked
what the Candidates thought about Newt Gingrich's
Personal Issues you said:
GET TO THE REAL ISSUES
Good one Mitt.
~Your hand gestures were good - Mitt. Controlled and
kept at just above the waist level.(Although when
RS pointed to the sky he made me look. :] And Rick
used his head too much when he talked it confused me)
~I voted your tie as the best Mitt - because it was
classy with its just less than medium blue and white
stripes - not distracting like Rick's whose red one
with small white dots reminded me of those optical
~Everyone got a good shot in about their family at the
first except for Ron Paul who was smart and talked up
his qualifications and later drew applause for mentioning
that he was the only Veteran of the Four.
~Speaking of The Four - my very first thought was when the
Debates began - now we can get down to business with four
instead of six or eight. But when RP finally got chosen
to speak he was polite but a little exasperated and that
brought back memories of the 2008 circus debates.
~Loved the Huge American Flag and the Citadel Cadets
not to mention the nice big Star decor.
~When Newt Gingrich blasted CNN - and rightfully so -
for starting out with Gossipy Junk and making it look
like a travesty - still I thought Wow Newt -
way to go but I'm sure he was ready for that Contingency.
But really it did earn him a Standing O.
~Rick Santorum pretended to take notes throughout the Debates
but I'm betting that it was just his way of trying to stay
focused and not Look Dopey.
~And why is he still in the Race anyway?
~Good points were scored by Ron Paul about Specific
GOVERNMENT GET OUT OF THE WAY
WE NEED SOUND CURRENCY
SOMETHING ABOUT REGULATIONS
~There was a lot of talk about How Mitt Romney
did as CEO of Bain Capital but never heard of it
before tonight so no comment.
~I most likely missed out on any discussion about
Afghanistan (the phone call : [ )
~other Issues discussed:
VETERANS SHOULD BE GIVEN SPECIAL CONSIDERATION
IN HIRING - yes
~more on Mitt: slurring words - didn't even notice that
tonight; poised throughout except at last when he got
too excited; focused what a hunk and I'm not kidding :]
Keep your cool People.
~at least in the part I heard there did not seem to be
as mnay direct hits on President Obama - just for the sake of it.
~Ron Paul's remark about we should 'limit foreign spending to
help peole on health care' did anyone get that?
~Our economy works on a grass-roots level? Is that opposed
to the SMD Economy that Bill Maher suggested once? jus'wonderin'
~Mitt said that the ObamaCare should be reversed in its entirity (sp)
~Rick Santorum got too overwhelming in his reponse about repealing
~RS seemed to be confused at one point but still continued to
faithfully make notes which showed a consistency and that is to be
~Most and really only SEG's that I caught: Newt Gingrich
~I felt there were some good exchanges between the various
~Rick Santorum graced us with several 'knowing' smiles
~RP addessed the Press at one Point
I Loved This Debate.
To Me It Confirmed What I Already Knew:
That after all the Debates are Doable With Just Four Candidates
AND THAT AMERICA IS THE GREATEST COUNTRY IN THE WORLD
