ABC Republican Presidential Debate Tonight

Saturday, December 10, 2011
Time: 8:00pm CST

* REUTERS brings us the following report and it starts off like this… The budding rivalry between surging Newt Gingrich and former frontrunner Mitt Romney will take center stage Saturday evening in the first of two Republican presidential debates in Iowa over the next five days… Gingrich, Romney and four other White House contenders will make their case to voters in a race that polls show is still up for grabs less than a month before Iowa kicks off the state-by-state Republican nominating contest… The debate will be broadcast nationally on ABC at 9 p.m. EST from Drake University in Des Moines. Another Republican debate will be held on Thursday in Sioux City, Iowa… "These are the last chances for the candidates to really have an impact on the race before the voting starts," said Republican strategist Matt Mackowiak. "It's a huge opportunity."…

One of my favorite moments in tonight’s debate would had to been when Newt said... "I think sometimes it is helpful to have a president of the United States with the courage to tell the truth. Just as it was Reagan who went around his entire national security apparatus to call the Soviet Union an 'evil empire.' Reagan believed the power of truth restated the world and reframed the world. I'm a Reaganite. I'm proud to be a Reaganite. I will tell the truth, even if it causes some confusion sometimes with the timid."
.
Bottom line is Newt did an outstanding job tonight in the debate. Romney on the other hand really had a poor performance tonight. And I believe it will show to be so in the polls that come out next week.
.
I also believe Romney is going to have to do a much better job of it in next week’s debate on Fox News. If not… he just might end up having a shorter run of it then he was counting on!
