    Good debate.I tuhgoht Romney handled himself very well, especially when Perry brought up the lawn service non-issue. Trying to tell Romney that he had no credibility to comment on Perry's immigration issues because Romney himself had hired illegals to take care of his lawn, was absolutely pathetic.In my opinion, I think that most of the candidates are now realizing that Romney has a good shot to go all the way Herman Cain being the only one who may not be of that opinion. I like Cain, but I don't think he has the foreign policy knowledge that Romney has, or quite the financial expertise of Romney.

    Wow, Howard – where to go when Reliable Sources isn't reliable? Man were your true colors on display. The real echo chamber has been months of repeating Democratic talking points about how Romney's out of touch and can't connect- etc. so everyone is surprised at his performance in the debate. And Obama has one (one!) negative week in the press and irony of ironies you of all people say it's unfair. And BTW, wasn't it the President's job to refute those so-called lies? And why aren't we hearing about the President's plans for the next 4 years? Romney wasn't putting on a performance he was ready and has a command of the issues. I don't mind some back and forth but I can't watch your show when even you have an agenda. The media scoring the media is ridiculous anyway.
