The Debate

The exchange on Iran and the Straights of Hormuz was good though too short.

It is the sort of serious, Commander-in-Chief question that needs to get asked.

But the lefty bias, especially from the local talent, was deadening.

The only impact of the debate will be from the opening of the “influence peddler” front against Newt. Romney’s pressing of this case sets up the ads that are already airing and which will increase in tempo and specificity. MSM as well will be forced to ask for whom did Newt lobby, for how much money, and to what effect? Newt’s “historian” answer just isn’t going to cut it, and with Rick Santorum blasting away from the other side on Newt’s 20 year support for a federal individual mandate, the Speaker is welcomed to the front-runner circle.

Haven’t seen any but The Fix’s grades yet, but I suspect most will call this a very good night for Romney when he needed one.

UPDATE
: Politico headline “Mitt Mauls Newt In Debate” pretty much sums it up.
