Republican debate conclusions

I think Romney came out looking the best, hands down.

However, political adviser Dick Morris believes that MSNBC and Politico.com actually conspired against Giuliani to make him look bad. He also believes that their goal was to make Romney and McCain shine.

I do agree that the questions were stupid, “who believes in evolution?”. I am not so sure I actually agree with Morris. I honestly think that this was just a new stage for Giuliani and he floundered a bit. I also think that Romney was born to debate. McCain looked and sounded terrible in my opinion, Morris is way off on that.

Political Buzz also has some lengthy debate analysis:

Have we mentioned that it’s still ridiculously early in the ‘08 race? Nothing proves that more than the results of last night’s GOP debate from California. With Mitt Romney, John McCain, and Mike Huckabee looking like pros and Rudy Giuliani fighting just to appear as relevant as the second-tier white noise, the proceedings were a clear sign of how far it is to go until the Republicans choose a nominee. And unless they really love Romney, conservatives are very happy with that fact. It will give McCain the time to talk about an issue – any issue – beyond Iraq allow Giuliani to become a fire-breathing anti-abortion robot.

Hot Air also has debate analysis as does The Presidential Tote Board 2008.

    RON PAUL WON THE DEBATE, LOOK AT ALL THE POLLS. HE IS THE BEST CHOICE FOR AMERICANS, NOT THE ELITE. LOKK AT HIS WEB-SITE CHECK AT HIS VEIWS. RON PAUL 2008

  • Ron Paul is the leading candidate among the people. The war profiteering corporate monopoly owned media (whew!) doesn’t like him and is trying their best to silence him.

    But face it, he’s the only anti-war republican. He knows what’s up and is not afraid to say it. The majority of the people are sick and tired of this war. They’ll vote for Ron Paul to end it. And as a bonus he’ll restore the Constitution.

  • Sam Fogerty

    Wow, a candidate that’s actually for the American people and who doesn’t think the Constitution is “just a damned piece of paper”. He actually bases his votes in Congress on the constitutionality of the proposed legislation.

  • Robbie T.

    Wow, Ron Paul, an honest candidate that is really for the people?! I didn’t know those still existed! He is very impessive, and he knows his stuff! His principles may be the only hope for the future of our great Republic!

    Yes, it’s still Ron Paul all the way and yes, it’s still that he is entirely ignored by the corporate and non-free and independent media.

    I laugh at them and then hang up on their minions who call and ask if I want to get the newspaper delivered to my home.

    Why the HELL would I want indoctrination to enter my free abode? No way man.

  • Mike Huckabee is definitately the Republican front-runner!

    EVERYONE WANTS TO BE A HUCKABEE!!!! GO MIKE!!!

  • Wade Lawson

    We should not forget who our target audience is and their capacity to embrace principles and exercise those principles on a wide variety of situations with consistency.

    With very few exceptions, these candidates don’t deal with principles. The debates seem to be opportunities for the reporters and the candidates to play “One Upmanship” by saying something particularly unique on an isolated occurance that will unlikely never be of any consequence to the larger picture.

    Most of these candidates don’t appear to learn from the past and I find it hard to believe they have risen to the status they enjoy becuase they are stupid. I think the American Citizen is being duped yet again.

    Vote intelligently.

    I Vote Ron Paul.

  • Go Huckabee!!!

    A true Republican conservative and the only Governor left in the race.
