She’s got the appropriate Fly them to the Moon theme going on, and mentions again the possibility of a brokered convention.
One comment she had caught me a bit off guard.
Big loser: Gingrich.
Big gainer: Santorum.
Big surprise: Paul’s likeability factor, even if he is completely on the moon when it comes to Israel, jihadists, and national security.
Big, unchanged reality: Big Government Romney, Big Government Gingrich, and Not As Big A Government As He Voted For When He Was in the Senate But Still Too Big Government Santorum.
Interesting. As I noted last night, right about 9:10 p.m. ET I thought Santorum was about to blow a gasket. Was it my TV, or did he seem to get more and more red faced and flustered/frustrated as he answered questions.
I saw desperation in his eyes. My guess is he knows this will be the end for his campaign if he can’t replace Romney or Gingrich as one of the top two in the field of four.
Also, Publius at Big Government writes…
Rick Santorum spent the first two thirds of the debate yelling at people—though his talking yelling points were generally quite good—and then got sweet and sensitive for the latter third. I like my President cool, calm, and collected, and Santorum needs work on that front.
I agree about cool, calm and collected, and Santorum was so uncool at one point, I never heard his answer … I was trying to see if my TV color adjustments were off as his face got more and more red.
