I only watched bits and pieces of last night’s debate, and I’ve seen some replays.
I know I should have watched more of it, so I could give you my always insightful, prescient and probing analysis. But when I tuned in, I tuned out.
My sense from the bits and pieces is that Romney did well, continuing to establish himself as above the fray of attacking other Republicans and focusing on Obama. In a part I did watch live, Pawlenty and Bachmann fell into Chris Wallace’s trap of fighting over scraps of debate bait; they both suffered, but Pawlenty more so. I’ve also heard that Santorum was impressive but haven’t actually seen any clips of his answers. Ron Paul’s answer on Iran, which I heard on replay, was frightening.
So who won?
