So that was the first entire debate I have seen this cycle and apparently I haven't missed much. I am continuously amazed at the apparent shield that surrounds Romney. Mitt is the luckiest guy in the world that he is running against a bunch of clowns. Don't get me wrong, Mitt is perhaps the most qualified candidate we have had in a long time. But when I say that, I am not thinking like a guy dressed up like George Washington.
Nevertheless, here are my favorite moments of the debate (although it is difficult to narrow it down to three).
1. According to Rick Santorum, Romney was playing class warfare by addressing the middle class. Newt was glad to jump in and talk about how Romney only has slightly given tax cuts to the rich, unlike the bold Newt whose tax plan surpasses even Rick Perry's in its tilt toward the rich. This is what it has come to. I am going to posting more on this later. The day that class warfare become not giving billions of dollars in tax cuts to the richest of Americans during a time when unemployment is sky high is the day that I am in the wrong party.
2. Rick Perry would re-invade Iraq. Every time Perry opens his mouth I am taken aback at how utterly ignorant he is. I happen to work in Baghdad and I can safely say that such a policy would be met with unanimous opposition from the entire American political-military establishment here. And the Perry notes that Iran is rapidly moving into Iraq. Sounds like something he saw on TV, but not exactly what is happening.
3. Got to love that championship basketball game going on right now, Newt.
Can we just cancel the rest of the nomination process and pronounce Romney the nominee? I know that it would be undemocratic, but at least these clowns wouldn't embarrass themselves anymore.
