Romney lost his ‘kewl’ with both Santorum and Perry. Romney showed he had difficulty handling direct confrontation when he is pushed off his script. CNN post-debate commentary said the WH was looking on and ‘liked’ what they saw with Romney [his imploding].
Santorum reminds me of a little yap-dog, but he did score a few direct hits at both Romney and Cain.
Cain and his 999 took some direct hits. His ‘their numbers are wrong’ without further explanation and his ‘details are on my website’ are weak responses.
Too bad Newt is Newt. He always has many good lines, but he also has a trainload of old baggage from the 90s that would dog him through the election, if he started rising in the polls.
If we would take the good parts of each one and create an entirely new ‘candidate’, would we have a good candidate or just a Frankenstein monster?
I was literally jumping out of my chair excited when Santorum turned the big guns on Romney. And wow did he hit Romney hard, Romney was turning red and nearly in tears at one point, by the double team from Santorum and Perry.
