GOP Voters First Forum

Don't know if you had a chance to watch last night on CSPAN (when the hell are they going to broadcast in HD--looks like I'm watching the 1969 moon landing), but the GOP candidates for President mostly got together in New Hampshire for the Voters First Forum.  Senators Paul, Cruz, and Rubio joined from DC by satellite, where they stayed in order to cast their votes for defunding Planned Parenthood.  Lindsay Graham decided it was more important to be in New Hampshire.

With thirteen or fourteen of them, only a very disciplined and fast paced format would work, and to their credit, the organizers pulled it off, due mostly to the dexterity of the moderator.  Here is my very general view of how things went:

Helped themselves:  Perry, Fiorina, Graham, Cruz, Carson, Walker, Santorum
Hurt themselves:  Pataki
No help, no damage:  Bush, Christie, Jindall, Kashich, Paul, Rubio

Pataki just seems out of the game to me.  I continue to really like to listen to Santorum's message of economic revival, but also continue to believe that he is a poor vessel for the message.  Are you listening Marco?

As for my man Marco, he had a good night, but the time delay associated with the satellite feed seemed to put the three Senators at a little disadvantage.
