So how did you love the debate? If you thought the greatest crisis facing America was the tendency of Republican Presidential candidates to take forty seconds to deliver a thirty second answer, then you loved CBS moderator Scott Pelley. Of course, he looked pretty stupid when he cut Mitt Romney off after thirty seconds and Mitt had to explain he was on the sixty second clock. Ooops! And his lecture to Newt about the illegality of Obama's lethal drone strike on Awlaki was absurd. Per CBS News, the Justice Department is on one side and the ACLU on the other; the question is at best unresolved.
Among the candidates, I thought the humbler, self-deprecating Rick Perry was effective. He had some good quips about his Dept of Energy memory lapse, but otherwise did seem lost up there. Gingrich and Romney stood out, as usual; Cain seemed to be BSing, but it probably didn't cost him support.
