Mitt the Frontrunner...

    Why did the assembled field of Republican candidates give Newt such an easy time during tonight's debate?

    Trying to impact the surprising Santorum and cope with the heavily invested Huntsman and front runner Romney.  You can't fight everyone at the same time.

    I figured Mitt was going to be bloodied in tonight's debate, but he was barely touched. Maybe they're keeping their powder dry for the Sunday morning debate.

      No, Mitt is their favorite. They will do what it takes to make the others look bad, and him to look good.

      For me, he seemed to be the least qualified on that stage.

        Mitt isn't everyone's favorite:
        the big government conservatives don't like him much at all.

        And hilariously, Newt's ads in SC are attacking Romney for *gasp* being able to speak French. This is especially hilarious because Newt's doctoral dissertation was on education in the Belgian Congo, and many of the sources he cited were in French!

        Maybe Newt had to pay a translator? lol

        But anyway, the big government conservatives fear Mitt Romney, a right-of-center moderate, almost more than they fear Obama, a left-of-center moderate. Romney might not help them actively persecute the gays, and might actually act on the knowledge that higher taxes do not automatically lead to an economic slowdown. Plus, he's a Mormon, and Mormons are scaaaaaarrrrryyy to the Religious Right.

      No. Say it ain't so. Not the who cares line. Not you. You do, don't you?
