Who did you like? (and notice I used two words in my title since "one word titles may be deleted" :rofl:) Pawlenty, Bachman, Santorum, and Romney performed well, regardless of whether I agreed with them or not. Cain gave me absolutely no reason to take him seriously and Paul appeared as out of touch as ever. Gingrich gave the most bizarre answer when following up Cain's comments about having Muslims on his staff. Gingrich seemed to feel the Joe McCarthy era was a good thing, which is something you don't hear very often. And one of Romney's answers sounded very strange. He was saying the bailout of car industries was a bad thing and that going through bankruptcy was a better solution, then summed up his argument by saying instead of government getting involved, Obama should have let the car companies solve their own problems the American way. The American way as in declaring bankruptcy? Is that the new version of the American dream? (I know he didn't mean it that way, but it was a strange way to sum up his argument.) Being unknown seemed to be an asset. Bachman seemed poised and reasonably sane, which was a shock to me. Santorum and Pawlenty made good overall impressions. While Romney did well, it was just hard to shake the image he built in 2008 - an image of being even shallower and possessing less character than even Bill Clinton. Given that I won't vote for Bachman or Santorum, I think Pawlenty came out impressing me the most.
