Quick Thoughts...Another debate down and, what, 20 or 30 to go?
The Perry Bomb...wow, what can you say about it? Even his critics have to feel bad, don't they? That was...brutal. Perry isn't doing himself many favors in the debates so far, but this one? Again. Wow.
Angry Newt...Gingrich loves to come after the media again and again and again. He gets praised for being an "ideas guy". Why does he waste his limited time coming after the questioners? But maybe I'm biased on this.
Rick Santorum...probably the only one on stage coming after the others. Probably has to with his poll standing right now.
Jon Huntsman, Michele Bachmann and Ron Paul saw little action and few chances to stand out, although that Paul claw may make it on the late-night talk shows (as he tried to help Perry out during his moment of forgetfulness).
Herman Cain...Of course, THE question had to come, didn't it? The audience booed. Cain used the night to mention 9-9-9 999 times. I was counting. He's moving on...until all those accusers stand side-by-side in a news conference.
Mitt Romney...He passed on the chance to weigh in on Cain's situation, although he did earlier this week. Once was enough? I may be in the minority here, but I thought it was a legitimate question for him to answer that whether as a CEO, he would hire Cain, taking into account all of those sexual harassment allegations.
Bachmann and Paul will be back in Iowa campaigning in the next few days. And the rest of them?
