New Hampshire: Fox Republican Debate

Another Republican debate in New Hampshire is now on Fox News. Is anybody watching? I am. I'm not going to live blog, but I will add some thoughts here or in the comments. Hope you join me.

6:12 pm. Romney and Huckabee are fighting. Romney to Huckabee" "You make up facts faster than you talk and that's pretty fast."

Giuliani is a terrible debater. He's all statistics and nothing loses a tv audience faster than stats and percentages. It's TV 101.

6:34 pm: McCain says he knows how to get Osama bin Laden and he will get him. If he does know how to get him, isn't it his patriotic duty to tell George Bush?

6:55 pm: Huckabee: The prisoners at Guantanamo are being treated "too darn good." Fred Thompson says, well they have certain rights.

    How many statements Huckabee made months ago, that he is now contradicting, that is probably the most honest and accurate statement concerning Huckabee.

    when Romney said to Huck - you're attacking my position - and Huck said "which one?"

    I missed it!  Or do you mean last night's debate?  It was hilarious and would be even funnier if Romney left the door open to get burned on the same line again tonight...

    How do spin "change" (none / 0) (#5)

    when you're the incumbent party and you screwed everything up.  I like how they argue for change without admitting that Bush made things are so bad that they need to be changed.  Actually I think it's funny that except for McCain they're very careful not to mention Bush at all.

    Huck said we should make sure to never have AnotherAmnestyEverAgain.

    Yet, his scheme - and that from McCain and Ruuuudy - would give tremendous PoliticalPower to those who currently oppose our laws, making YetAnotherAmnesty almost completely certain to occur.

    Needless to say, Wallace didn't call him on that.
