I say enough. We are not nominating the captain of the debate team.
A rational argument may be made that Newt owes his survival to this point to his superb debating skills. And that Rick Santorum would not have become, almost by default, the “not-Romney” once the gloss of Newt’s debate performances paled in the glare of his foolish pronouncements and the weight of his personal baggage.
It isn’t too hard to imagine that, absent these debates, right now we might be having primary contests between front runners Rick Perry and Mitt Romney.
