This one snuck up on me, so I didn't get to advertise live-blogging. Instead, I sat and Tweeted my thoughts to those who might wish to read them.
Here's a fairly good rundown on the debate from Politico.
Perry just isn't debating as well as I thought he would. I found his answers on immigration ridiculous, somehow attempting to equate failure to provide taxpayer subsidies to illegal aliens with abandoning people. His foreign policy answer sounded like he swallowed a briefing book and threw it up.
Mitt was solid, but didn't handle the "Race to the Top" thing very well.
Santorum--whiny, but effecitve
Huntsman--interesting, but plastic.
Cain--a gem too.
Bachman--pretty good answer on religious freedom, at least from history perspective.
