    The Republican Debate

    Did anyone watch the debate last night? It was about as exciting as watching metal rust. The format really wasnt fair to anyone. It seemed that some candidates got much more pointed questions than others. Opinions?

    It seems every debate I have watched on both sides is loaded with questions to certain individuals and not all. I remember a Democrat debate where one of them was complaining about not getting a chance to get their message out, I believe it was an older gentleman who was hilarious about it, because they were not getting any questions.

    Looks like McCain won this one. The real question is did Mitt lose any of his lead in NH?

    I normally don't watch things like this but because I was bored and one of my roommates was watching with some of his friends, I decided to take it in.

    I totally don't think McCain won the debate.....the person I think did the best job was Ron Paul.

    I thought McCain probably sounded the most presidential but I didnt think the moderators held his feet to the fire like they did Rudy and Mitt. Rudy's answers all sounded the same-what he did in New York...I thought at one point he was going to tell us how many push-ups he could do. I guess, if I had to pick one, I thought Huckabee probably came out ahead. Ron Paul is out there but he also has some interesting ideas. However, Paul isnt in the republican arena very much.I really dont know what you could label Paul. You could hear Rudy laughing every time Paul started to speak.

    Rue Paul has about as much of a chance of being elected as Ron Paul

    I think the heat is really rising between Rudy and Mitt. It seems they are becoming a little more confrontational each debate...
