The Republican Debate in Ten Words

Romney looks it.
McCain's blinky.
Rudy flounders.
Where is Fred?

Is that like a haiku or something? Thank you. Now I don't have to watch.

Fred is in the winners circle while these other guys are still circling the track.

Mitt Romney was the John Edwards of tonight's debate: calculated, slick, and unconvincing.

I figure Romney probably moved up the polls compared to anyone else that was there tonight, but my biggest reaction to the debate was THOMPSON '08! I'll probably have more to say at after I've had time to study some film clips; I guess NBC is going to rerun the whole thing later but it's not worth watching all of again.

How long has Ron Paul been passing himself off as a Republican?

Bill: Ron is a Libertarian. In fact, he was the Libertarian nominee for President in 1988 (placed 3rd nationally). He's been caucusing with Republicans since the late 1990s. See wiki.

I watched the debate.
Searching for inspiration.
Looking for a man.
To inspire me to the battlements.
That man was not there.

Fred Thompson has my vote and should have every conservative out there.

Head and shoulders above the field, Mitt Romney was articulate, witty, and appeared just smarter than the rest of the field. His response to stem cell research caught even the commentator off guard. He obviously knows his stuff and should move up in the polls. Keenly Reagan, even Thompson cannot appeal as much as Mitt, but imagine a Romney/Thompson ticket. That looks like a winner in 08. Romney caught my attention.

After reading different republican blogs about the debates of Thursday past, it appears that America has died at last. With concern for pomp and style and looks, the lack of discernment for substance renders the mainstream kooks. Why no concern for details? Only one candidate offered the truly Patriotic antidote for the people's travails. Non-interventionism, sound money and abiding by the Constitution are the solution and the failure to see this is aiding in Freedom's dissolution. Republicrats and demopublicans rule the day while truth, knowledge and honesty have all but gone away.

Oh, yeah. What about this?
