Call me irresponsible: I say Romney won

SIMI VALLEY, Calif. -- It would be terribly irresponsible to pick a winner of Thursday night’s Republican debate. So I will.

I think Mitt Romney won. And I think John McCain came in second and Rudy Giuliani came in third.


He looked and sounded presidential. He hit his talking points. And voters who knew nothing about him before the debate except that he was a Mormon, came away knowing a lot more.

In other words, you could just pop him right into Disney's "Hall of Presidents" and not bother with the robot.

There doesn't seem to be any consensus on the intertubes as to who won last night. I've seen all three of the top contenders plus Paul (he struck a nerve with Libertarians) and Huckabee (seemed sanest of the bunch).

And I so do not get the "Bill Clinton back in the White House..... Good thing or bad thing? question.

Lots more fun to come!!

*Oh, Tommy Thompson now says he "didn't hear" the question about firing a gay person just for being gay. Hmmm, what in the world did he think he heard?

Not one of those very nice (acting) men believe in freedom from religion. They all want to force us to what ever their mythology is.

I was really creeped out by the constant references to using religion to be the basis for our laws. Other than Mitt, I don't think the majority of that crowd really could give a rats ass about religion, but they know they need to kow-tow to the religious right to get elected.

That's right Mary Ellen.

Did they mention their faith when they were out getting their divorces?

The whole thing came off as a show to see who could be the most hypocritical.

Particularly with the partial birth abortion claims. They said nothing about the risk to late term turns of health to the mother.

They were talking about a Mormon for President with a delicacy not given to Keith Ellison. What a joke.

The only thing I heard that made sense was how Tom Thompson wanted to include the Iraqi population in revenu sharing and Ron Paul's views of the war. They of course made no sense on all of the other issues.

I disagree that Huckabee comes off as looking the "sanest."

He did say that he does not believe in evolution.
