7. I think this is correct. Mitt stopped stampede.

Could be wrong, they're not really very predictable.

4. Hard to tell.

I really missed the audience feedback we have seen in the prior nights of long knives. I get that they are likely hand picked, but it was cool to hear what lines were sticking their landings and which were total misses. Quips like 'self-deportation' and Cuban 'jihad network' were hilarious and really deserved a live response on whether they stuck the landing or missed completely as opposed to waiting for analyst deconstruction. Tonight was hard to call, IMO because it was so damn bland.

Not sure what I am hoping for in Florida. Obama would destroy any of them in the general (IMO), so am looking for the entertainment factor at this point and leaning either The Froth or Crazy Uncle Ron for the 31st just to keep it going for a while.

5. I did! I won!

Instead of watching the silly thing, I was with a group of OFA volunteers phonebanking. The conversations were, shall we say, energetic. It was clear that the callees had been watching the debates. One woman on our list wasn't home and her husband answered the phone; he asked if he could take a message, and when our caller identified himself and gave his purpose for calling, the husband admitted to being a republican thoroughly disgusted by the GOP field; he said he'd be voting for Obama. Most of the other conversations included some negative mention of the debates. Our callers generally finished the conversations smiling. Yeah, we didn't see the debate, we talked to lots of people who did, we talked to lots of people who are going to be voting for Obama. We're smiling. We won. I won.

6. GREAT to hear a PUB is votig for BO!

I HOPE there a lot more like that! I have to watch myself when I see what a dismal field the Pubs have that I don't get TOO optomistic. I keep telling meself to stop thinking logically because non of the Pubs think that way. You've brightened my evening with that news
! Thanks.

10. One of the first pubs to say he was voting for President Obama was Don Imus. He said

it on his Fox show, ranted about what a horrid field it was, "Is this the best they have?" Good stuff.

8. Rachel Maddow.

I was watching Rachel - then remembered the debate - switched over to NBC - could only stand 3 minutes of the boring crap - switched back to Rachel.

9. Romney.

Although he's still not good at the attack stuff he did it somewhat effectively last night. Gingrich seemed uncomfortable at times and wasnt as animated in his lying tirades as he was in SC.. probably due to lack of crowd interaction.

11. I only watched the first half because I have to get up early

but from what I did see, it's not who won, but who lost.

Both R-money and Gingrich sounded like spoiled little brats who wanted nothing more than to one up the other. Pissing contest in the truest sense.

Neither Paul or Santatorium where given much time, but I think they won by default.

12. The audience won

For staying civilized, compared to the barbarians to their north. Obama keeps looking better and better.
