GOP Debate Roundup

I didn't think Mitt Romney did as poorly as the post-game TV commentary suggested. He was on the defensive all night, since a lot of different candidates targeted, but under the circumstances I thought he did okay. Mark Levin at the Corner agrees with me.

Mike Huckabee is clearly the best politician out of this crew -- everyone but him and Ron Paul looked tired, and Huckabee is really the only one who's in touch with the mood of the country. His policy solutions are empty or crackpotty, but since his rivals don't deign to engage with him that doesn't come across during the debates. Meanwhile, his empty or crackpotty solutions are aimed at real problems real people have. The others often seem to be living on another planet.
