I think Santorum destroyed his idea for a national sales tax, and Bachmann make a joke out of it with her 999-666 comment as well as whoever said the comment about thinking it was a pizza deal.
I think Cain took major damage last night. He’s not done for, but it took 3 debates to destroy Perry, and it will probably take 3 to destroy Cain. It’s a shame that Bachmann and Santorum can’t use their sharp tounges to destroy Romney before they exit the stage forever.
Santorum at least took it to Romeny a little regarding health care. He seemed the only one to actually score some points against him.
As for Bachmann, what the heck is up with her and Willard?
It's like she's smitten with Mittens.
“I think Santorum destroyed his idea for a national sales tax”
I think he tried but failed. And he had nothing better to offer.
Bachmann did a better job and targeted the main weakness of the plan, but the fact remains that 9-9-9 would be an improvement over the current system. It’s clear, simple, broadens the base and reduces the aggregate tax burden on individuals and corporations.
Three debates destroyed perry, last night he just butted the wall several times. Man is not big league. But he did come up with a good way to dumb down debt. All those illegals counted and used to say the debt per person, in Texas, was less per capita. Damn perry would want to borrow 300 million chinese and say per capita he had cut the debt in half in the united states and he and obummer would have a hell of a lot more to spend.
Now, for the sticking point on the pizza wars taking place on stage, Domino's Pizza was sold to Bain Capital in 1998 and went public in 2004. Romney didn't leave Bain Capital until 1999 which meant that for a short while he was part-OWNER of 6,000 pizza joints ~ or about 25 times as many as Mr. Cain.
The question is does anyone have any idea if Bain Capital (that is Romney) continued to make contributions to Right To Life movement organizations or did they abandon that?
“Hes not done for, but it took 3 debates to destroy Perry, and it will probably take 3 to destroy Cain.”
Perry wasn´t “destroyed”, he shot himself in the foot. Repeatedly. In the end, he just couldn´t stem the blood loss.
In comparison, pushing an overly radical tax plan in the primaries is a small problem, it´s something you can flip-flop out of with some “adjustments”.
Regardless of how this turns out, we´re lucky to have Cain in it so it doesn´t turn into a Romney promenade.
