BLITZER'S BLOG: Perry, Romney and Reagan

(CNN) - What struck me most about Rick Perry’s verbal assault on Mitt Romney at the CNN Western Republican Debate in Las Vegas was its contrast to the way Ronald Reagan used to conduct himself during debates.

The late president would never have gone after a fellow Republican in such a direct, personal way. If Reagan were going to attack a fellow Republican on something like the alleged hiring of illegal immigrants for lawn service, he would have had his aides handle it. He would have personally stayed away from the charge.

Media Analysis: Mike Huckabee and Donald Trump go anti-Reagan – choose celebrity over politics

After the live announcement on his TV show, a pre-taped message from Donald Trump aired, with the Donald saying, "a lot of people are very happy that he will not be running, especially other candidates."
