    So who looks the best?

    No left vs right.

    Which candidate did the best tonight?

    Carson seems to have trouble speaking in this forum.

    Trump, whoa boy, he is not disappointing.

    Bush seems polished.

    Paul seems very smug. Very smug.

    Carson seems over his head.

    Trump is digging himself a hole and proving he's a joke.

    The two Florida boys sound the best to me.

    Favorite moment for me was Paul and Christie getting into a shouting match. I was waiting for the audience to begin chanting Jerry, Jerry, Jerry!

    Didn't watch a minute of it. Was Paul just trying to bait Christie into losing it?

    Trump should have lost a fair amount of support right at the start, though we'll see.

    Huckabee is taking the bull by the horns. If you didn't watch the earlier round with the other seven candidates, Fiorina and Perry showed that they should have been in with the big boys.

    Still on.

    Does it hurt Huckabee that he's not really come close in the past?

    I just got an ESPN commercial during the debate.

    Unsure if I have ever seen an ESPN commercial on another network.

    I'm a little behind and not watching live. FOX is doing its best to stoke the base which is irritating.

    Both Baier and Kelly are asking veiled questions where they lick around the edges of a specific candidate.

    Huckabee isn't a serious candidate. He won a few states in 2008 because most Republicans knew better than to run after two terms of Bush.

    He and Santorum are only in this to keep their speaking fees in the five figures.

    Didn't realize it was still on.
