Five things we learned from Tuesday's GOP debate

Here are five things we learned from the debate:

    Bachmann is so far out of her league and panders to bumper sticker catch phrases with nothing else in the tank, she might get the fifth grader suppoert but no adults would vote for this hateful person. Santorum was the best at directly answering questions. Romney has been doing this for so long he is just boring other than waiting to see what he will flip flop on on any given day. Perry will never get past his record of spending government money on a lavish lifestyle while pretending to be a conservative. Cain did good here but his 999 is the death of his chances, as well Republicans would never put a black man in the Whitehouse even if it was Jesus. Obama was the clear winner here.

    The red-meat, frothing at the mouth righties sure got their share tonite. One thing it did show was the when pushed, Mittens will lose his cool. His touching of Perry will not go over nationally. The rest of the field don't have anything even close to a chance of beating Obama, even if the election were held today.
