I didn’t get to see the debate because we don’t get the Bloomberg Network… so I’ve been reviewing it on line in pieces. I’ve also looked at remarks around the web commenting on it. Andrew Sullivan, whose opinions I usually disagree with, made an interesting summary which the parts of the debate I have seen back up:

“Huntsman I can understand and appreciate. Perry is an empty bad suit. Romney lies with such facility it unnerves me. Bachmann is a fanatic, as, although I am extremely fond of him, is Ron Paul.
