SC Republican Debate Is As It Should Be

The SC GOP Debate taking place in Myrtle Beach, SC tonight is ongoing as I type, and is also what should have taken place all along.  When the debates started in May of 2011, ironically in South Carolina, there were eight candidates on the stage and not enough detail for voters to discern a real sense of how the candidates would govern as President of the United States.  As the primary season has started and as we are currently watching the South Carolina debate, we are finally getting to the specifics that voters have wanted to digest and then decide.

I am struck tonight by how the candidates are doing against each other.  Newt Gingrich as always has his one liners, Ron Paul has stuck to his guns, Rick Santorum has been solid and attacked Mitt Romney, Rick Perry has been more solid tonight then usual and has actually moved away from his sound bites, and Mitt Romney has been his usual solid but has shown more passion tonight than in any other debate while being under withering assault in the first hour of the debate. 

The fireworks have really gone wild tonight and finally each candidate has had a chance to speak his mind and we are finally getting to compare and contrast both policies and temperment. 

We will see who the pundits pick as the winner but for the first time tonight all of the people on the stage look and sound Presidential.  To me that means we are going to have a strong ticket and future Cabinet if the Republican nominee goes on to win the election in November.

  1. I didn’t catch the whole debate but I did get to see Newt bankrupt Juan Williams. I realize Newt draws from a seemingly endless bag of one liners but he really dismantled the race baiting questions from Williams. Enough so, I hope, that someone paying attention recognizes the main stream media template that Juan was trying to sell.

  2. Good to hear from you B. I think the people (voters) realize what the MSM is up to. That was a great moment in the debate and one where Newt really shined, but Newt’s issue has always been his ability to keep his game on that level. Today he was on the stump blasting Romney for his 15% tax rate and really sounding like Obama. The fact that Newt and Rick Perry have succumbed to this line of attack proves that the President has done a good job painting those who go out and earn their success as evil. I don’t think people will approve and Newt will not go much further in the race. I am seeing a Romney/Santorum ticket with some Ron Paul economic ideology on the party platform. That would be some nice triangulation for Obama and his partisans to keep up with in the general election.

  3. I’ve been browsing online greater than 3 hours nowadays, but I by no means discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours. It’s beautiful worth sufficient for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made excellent content material as you did, the web will probably be a lot more useful than ever before.
