Five things we learned from Wednesday's GOP debate

Rochester, Michigan (CNN) - Wednesday's Republican presidential debate in Michigan was almost entirely focused on economic issues, but the forum offered some seriously revealing moments about each of the candidates.

The night's biggest loser was, without a doubt, Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who struggled uncomfortably for nearly a full minute to recall which three federal agencies he would eliminate as president.

  6. The Greedy Old Pigs have declared class war on US!

    Looks like Mitt the Flipwit is going to double down on his lies about the auto bailout and the mortgage meltdown. Of course, he has to toe the GOBP deathcult's party line, no matter how false.

    Newter's complaints about the media are laughable since they suggest it's the medias fault they aren't being asked enough questions about jobs. The GOBP deathcult has had ample time to address this issue, and media questions are not necessary. If you have a good plan, then publicize it. Sadly, the entire deathcult has been reduced to feeding each other, and their supporters, warmed over manure about "free markets", deregulation and tax cuts for the filthy rich. America has been waiting three years for these clowns to address the issue and instead they dodge it or actively oppose any efforts to improve the economy and jobs picture. And sane Americans realize this failure is owned by the GOBP deathcult itself, not the media for failing to ask the questions Newt want.

    We learned that none of these clowns are ready to be president of our great nation. President Obama is the clear choice for 2012!
