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?
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.
Who cares. This was the highlight of the debate:

I thought Mrs. Romney was very artificial and stiff. The things she said about all the roles we women play were true, but more for our Mother's generation. She was discussing things like helping the kids write the book report while waiting for hubby to get home, when most Mom's work, something she...

He is clearly a pathological and habitual liar. He has poor control over his explosive temper. He giggles when confronted about disturbing behavior he has done in the past. Who is stupid enough to vote for a man who has poor self control, an explosive temper, and is unable to tell the truth....
