When Wolf asked Gov. Romney to give Rick Perry the credit for job creation in Texas, and Gov. Romney responded:

    I thought Mitt’s four aces comment was spot on the best zinger of the night. It is true and will follow Perry the rest of the campaign. Hey! Four Mitt supporters should dress up as Aces and follow Perry around to public events.

    I tried to be as objective as I could be about the debate. Mitt Romney won it!

    Michele Bachman had a good showing but blew it royally concerning her misconstruction of what State governments can and can not do. She said that the Federal Constitution does not allow for a mandate for either the Federal government or State Government. Gross error! She said that it was unconstitutional for a State to have a mandate, but if that were were true, then why do States require persons to have drivers licenses. I know that there are some people that do not drive and therefore do not have to have licenses; however, if they do drive, they are mandated by the State to have one. How is that different from a living person who becomes sick, or is involved in innumerable types of accidents, falls, insect bites, etc., etc. who goes to a hospital for free health care which the hospital is required to give at its hospital emergency room. Simply being alive requires the State to provide health care; and therefore, a mandate for insurance to cover that cost at the State level is justifiable, the same as having to have insurance at the State level if you actively drive a car. Bachman blew an otherwise magnificent performance.

    Newt Gingrich is so enjoyable to listen to with his great one-liners and common sense answers. If I could trust him more, he would make a great President.

    However, Mitt is the Man! I noticed how many of the eight candidates have picked up on Mitt’s numerous policies and spout them as if they originated them.

    The two original thinkers in the field were Herman Cain and Ron Paul. Ron’s commentary is predicable and not workable. Mr. Cain’s ideas are reasonable but probably not possible given the socialistic ramp we have slid down for so long.

    Jon Huntsman sounded like he was an Obama clone and belongs in the Democratic primary.

    Rick Santorum really sounded great tonight and despite stealing a few Romney lines, really hit Perry hard and tight with no wiggle room for Perry to squeeze out of his untoward positions.

    Mitt stood his ground, still looked Presidential, and knows what he is talking about. The debate format does not allow for his incredible ideas and forceful conservative positions to be demonstrated fully. Yet, he still was clear and away the best candidate on the platform this evening—as usual.
