Five things we learned from Thursday's debate

Jacksonville, Florida (CNN) - After a stunning loss in South Carolina and an uneven performance in a debate on Monday, Mitt Romney appeared to get his swagger back and turned in a strong performance in Thursday's CNN/Republican Party of Florida debate.

Here are five things we learned Thursday night.

    And may the RICHEST...(OOOOPS!), I mean the candidate most grounded in family values and the will of the people, LOSE! How do they expect to gain public respect when they're scrapping like a bunch of schoolboys? Typical Republicans– deflect the issues with negativity and finger-pointing. It's going to take more corporate funds to win this one boys!

    One thing is definitely true. Once a final GOP nominee is determined, American voters will rally behind him with a vengeance! Obama's Socialism game plan will ultimately fail!

    I would pick the winners in this order: Santorum, Romney, Paul, Gingrich.

    I don't agree with Ron Paul's politics, but he does have a quick wit – a good sense of humor. Seems like a nice guy. But I wouldn't vote for him.
