I did not watch the debate, but Clayton took a look and analyzed the transcript. I’m not even really going to read the transcript, because paying attention this far out of being able to vote is just too depressing. If I had to put money on the primary, this will end up a race between Perry and Romney. I’m not sure how much of a dog I have in that fight. Truth is, I’ll get behind anyone who’s name isn’t Barack Obama in the general election, but neither Perry nor Romney get me excited. I’d generally give an edge to Perry, since Romney is a serial panderer who can’t be counted on. All politicians paint a bit with that brush, but some make a high art of it. Romney is that type of politician.
