New Hampshire GOP Presidential Debate Tonight
Seven Republicans will be taking the stage tonight in New Hampshire at 7PM Central on CNN in what I consider the first real debate of the GOP Primaries. Sure, some of the candidates had a debate on FOX earlier, but many… okay most the heavy hitters were missing.
Tonight we will see Romney, Gingrich, Bachmann, Pawlenty, and others debate. Still missing of course is Texas Governor Rick Perry, and Sarah Palin.
There are many things that I will be looking for in tonight’s debate including how Mitt Romney handles criticism over RomneyCare. Tim Pawlenty has gone after Romney many times because of what Romney did in Massachusetts. RomneyCare is even credited by Obama officials as having laid some groundwork for ObamaCare.
How will Romney handle his other flip flops? Tonight could be a big night for Romney if he says the right things. If he doesn’t, watch out.
I’m also looking forward to seeing Newt debate. If Gingrich has any chance of winning the GOP nomination it will be because of great performances in the debates. Gingrich is a brilliant guy and he can turn things around, but it must happen fast.
How will Michelle Bachmann and Herman Cain sound? This is something else I’m looking forward to. Both are pretty much unknown to the masses, but in sound clips they sound pretty good. Will Herman Cain be able to handle it on stage with Romney and Gingrich? Will Bachmann come across as a new favorite? There are so many story lines and a lot to look for in this debate.
And, if we still don’t like any of these candidates. Rick Perry, Sarah Palin, Rudy Giuliani, and others might still be waiting to swoop in.
Do you plan on watching the debate tonight? What will you be looking for?
