Well that was Interesting. Author: RaineDate:09/08/2011 13:08:01
I'm still trying to wrap my head around that debacle last night.
Herman Cain mumblings of 9-9-9, Ron Paul telling us a silver dime is worth 3 dollars, People cheering Rick Perry for killing people, Newt lamenting that Obama doesn't come to the Reagan library and talk to Herman Cain on how to create jobs, Perry talking Gallileo and ponzi schemes...
It was interesting that all three Governors running claimed proudly that THEY were the ones who created the most jobs... yet they also claim government doesn't create jobs -- but rather the private sector.
This was, in all my years of following politics, the most insane, incredulous, and intellectually misleading debate I have ever seen. There were NO substantial solutions presented. Well ok-- there was a few here and there, like this one, from Michelle Bachmann:
As the nominee of the Republican Party, it will be my business to make sure that I elect also 13 more Republican senators who will help me repeal Obamacare.
And one from Herman Cain on how to fix HilaRomneyBamacare:
Here’s what I would do. Let’s patient-centered, market-driven reforms. You lose a pay loss. Some people call it tort reform. Lose a pay loss.
Ron Paul knows how to solve security issues at the Airport:
These TSA agents are abusive. Sometimes they’re accused of all kinds of sexual activities on the way they maul people at the airport. So the airlines could do that.
And this was before they brought in the hispanic (surprise!) moderator to ask about immigration! Shame on NBC for such blatant race pandering....
The only one last night that sounded reasonably sane and actually heartfelt, was John Huntsman, and quite honestly, I just don't see him standing a chance to win the nomination. Last night might make for good political theatre -- but it really is a sad statement on the state of the GOP and America today. One of these people on that stage last night will be running against President Obama.
