    About last night’s debate

    About last night’s debate

    The more I see Rick Perry in action the more I like him, but the more I get the feeling that he’s not up to the task of defeating Romney, much less Obama.  I’m not writing him off, at all, but he has to play a long game.  It may not be fair, but running for president is not like anything else; he has to be the messenger not just have a message.

    Cain was disappointing.  Alan Greenspan?!?!

    Michelle Bachmann had the best answer of the night, focusing on Chris Dodd and Barney Frank as the cause of the housing crisis.

    Newt was good, but didn’t get a lot of air time.

    Time to thin the herd and drop Huntsman from the next debate, he’s reduced to one-line jokes.

    Remember, not a single vote has been cast.  But unless some of the not-Romney’s drop out, I don’t see a path for any of them at the moment as the not vote gets diluted.

    I want Cain to stay for the shear joy of seeing the leftist race memes exploded. I want Gingrich to stay, for the gravitas of his debate answers. His sitting-by-Pelosi beltway nonsense has disqualified him for POTUS, but he handles the media inanity well. Huntsman needs to go.

    Is there absolutely NO GOP Governor/former Governor willing to toss their hat into the ring, even at this late date? Like a North Dakota Governor (which has a very low unemployment rate)? If not, then cull Huntsman (especially if Johnson is not allowed in) and let the primary race begin in earnest.

    It is at times like these I am grateful to be a Democrat. I don’t have to worry about the choice during the GOP primary AND I can begin focusing on Operation Counterweight, now, so I am ready to go come election season 2012.

    Lichau: Have you seen Cain’s response on the Iranian assassination plot/

    and that he didn’t realize there was a housing bubble in 2005?

    Cain really stumbled badly on both. He has a lot of holes, foreign policy being one, but the housing crisis he should have known about. Economics is supposed to be his forte. Not good.

    I’m hoping for a Cain/Bachmann or a Cain/Santorum ticket.

    I would settle for aany combination of these three people.

    I won’t be voting for Newt or Romney, period.

    I have not made up my mind on Perry but he has been WAY oversold up to this point…

    I voted for the Constitution Party last time around and if my option is another RINO I’ll do the same this time around.

    The Fed chairmen for the last 40 years are Burns, Miller, Volcker, Greenspan, and Bernanke. Who would you choose as the best? No one who knows any monetary history would choose Burns or Miller. I would choose Volcker, but he may look good because he did one big thing right and then left before he had time to screw up. If Greenspan had served only until 2000, he would be considered one of the greats, and it was in the time before 2000 that Cain was connected to the Federal Reserve.

    By the way, Cain’s position with the Federal Reserve is only one of several impressive things on his resume. His opponents try to downplay that résumé by trying to pigeonhole him as only a pizza executive, but none of them have résumés that are more impressive than his.

    @nohype

    Cain got spanked pretty bad on NBC this morning over 2 articles he wrote saying there was nothing wrong with the economy and that liberals were being dramatic. One before the housing meltdown and the other days before Lehman Bros. meltdown.

    Cain resorted to saying that he’s not perfect but he’ll have smart people around him in the WH.

    Blows his economic expertise angle…yeah

    He’ll be back on the book tour after the media stops reading his own words back to him.
