I think you’re right. The left’s prayer was that Rick would make some huge gaffe or give them some new talking point. I don’t think anything really new came out tonight.
I just wish Rick would have gone farther with the gov’t is a team sport answer. Should have asked Newt, Romney, and Paul if they never voted for anything in a package that they’d rather not dealt with.
Mitt accused Newt of the same and he turned around and covered for both Rick and himself in saying Mitt did the same yet accusing others of what he did himself. Like Mitt was implying it’s wrong for others but not for himself. Newt had the info about mitt demanding the catholic hospitals to follow the birth control laws that were in place and I was waiting for Rick to jump in and agree with Newt. Mitt was wrong and it would have taken mitt down a great deal. There was a thread about the catholic hospitals and mitt’s birth control insistance awhile back. I just wondered does Rick know about it? I can’t imagine that he doesn’t so I couldn’t understand why he remained quiet. Mitt got a huge pass on that one. If Rick followed Newt - Mitt would have gotten the treatment that Ron and Mitt were giving Rick. Squeeze him from both ends and that was a perfect opportunity to see Mitt loose it and stutter his way out of it.
