Interesting. What were the heated tiffs about?

Love how the "What would Jesus do?" question got dodged. And what the heck was with that guy who wanted to know what kinds of guns everyone owned ? That was kinda...creepy.

Giuliani and Romney went after each other at the very beginning regarding sanctuary cities, and McCain and Paul had the "we should/shouldnt be in Iraq" debate.

I can't decide whether or not I want Ron Paul to run as an independent. My first thought was no, but I think now it might be a good thing. I think he would take a lot of the anti-war vote that Hillary would otherwise get. He implied tonight that he would not run unless he gets the GOP nomination.

McCain thought it would be a good idea to compare Iraq to World War II and Hitler.

He also thought it was a good idea to mention "the troops" and how he had dinner with them in order to gain applauses.

I didn't see it, but here's what CNN had to say:

Quote:
A retired brigadier general, who is gay, asked candidates if they thought U.S. military personnel were professional enough to work with gay and lesbian troops.

Hunter said he thought having openly homosexual people serving in the ranks would be bad for "unit cohesion."

Romney said he didn't think the "don't ask, don't tell" policy would work, but, he said, "it's been there for now for what, 15 years -- and it seems to have worked."

CNN just said that the guy might be associated with the Clinton camp.

Ah, okay. Thank you . I saw the replay of the Iraq bit, too.

That SERIOUSLY pissed me off. Oh, my god... They can dodge the "What would Jesus do?" question, but when it came to the serviceman asking his question about gays in the military, they had nooooooo trouble answering that one point blank. The poor veteran looked close to tears-I felt so bad for him . The candidates who responded to him can go screw themselves.

Other things I'll take from this debate:

-New idea for a drinking game: every time Giuliani says "September 11th, 2001", take a drink. You'll be wasted by the end of the night.

-Ron Paul's views on Iraq make me happy. While I agree there'd be some benefits to him becoming an independent, at the same time, I think he should remain a Republican if for no other reason than for people to look at the candidates and say, "Well, at least there's ONE sane person in that group."

-Romney is SMOOTH with dodging questions. My head hurt trying to figure out what the hell he was trying to say in regards to the waterboarding thing (an area where McCain had the upper hand, no question)

-Looking at all these men, and hearing what they had to say, I can safely say that, with the exception of Ron Paul and possibly McCain, I don't want any of the rest of them within 10 feet of the White House, let alone doing anything else in there. Scary group-thanks for further clarifying why I'm not even considering voting for most of you.

Oh yes, many candidates have done that. Not Ron Paul though, no bullshit out of his mouth.
