Of course not. They're not the greasy car salesman that Romney is. Politics on tv and around this board has become like sports. It's a game. Mitt Romney can lie and pander much better than either of those two. If people wanted substance, small government, and common sense we wouldn't be watching Romney vs. Obama anyway.

Haven't seen Johnson.

Paul does well on substance, but not delivery.

Yup, because nobody wants to cut medicare, medicaid, or social security. That's political suicide as libertarians well know by now.

I think Paul would have been great up there. Bald-faced common sense defeats "eloquently" blown smoke every time. Romney was simply the more lucid of two snake oil salesmen last night; whoever wins, we lose.

In your case, do you think Santorum would've been better last night?



No, but Santorum is a better debater than Paul. The only person who ran for the GOP nomination this year who is a worse debater than Paul is Bachmann.

Gingrich would have made Obama cry last night.

Paul would throw the occassional haymaker, but these debates are about looking as eloquent as possible. So no.

Johnson isn't very astute and would've been cornered at every turn.

He's run for a Congressional seat multiple times. He's also run for president three times. Paul is not charismatic by any means. However, his message is good and he's been on point and consistent his entire career.

I'd like to see all of the candidates on the stage answering questions. The two party system isn't working.

Santorum is overly sensitive.

Neither of them put forth plans that actually address the deficit in any meaningful way.
