That might be one of the best lines tonight in the GOP debate. But back to that in a moment.
Newt came out swinging tonight, and I was impressed with him not backing down from the moderators. Santorum had a great answer when challenged about his faith, and how it applies to the poor. Although I'm sure they really wanted to hammer him about gay marriage, or abortion, they felt it was safer to go after him on helping the poor.
Unfortunately, the first 5 minutes were focused on Perry and Romney. With the format being the way it is, it's almost impossible to get a clear answer in 30 seconds to a minute. I really wish they had a better format to allow the same amount of time for each candidate.
When it came to immigration reform. Romney says to finish building the fence, and put more agents on the border. Gingrich says to follow Reagan's original plan. Ron Paul says we're going to end up boxing ourselves in? I'll let that one speak for itself. Cain said to allow the states to do what the federal government won't do. In the end we need to remember that we are talking about people, not cattle.
As far as education is concerned, I'm wondering if the left ever asked Obama what he was going to do about the poverty or education levels in Chicago?
Cain didn't get much airtime again, but when he did, he knocked it out of the park. Santorum was once again snubbed, and so was Bachmann. Huntsman who? In the end I think Romney will be in for the long haul. I still think Perry will be standing in the end against Obama.
And the final comment of the night: DON'T MESS WITH TEXAS!!!
