Open thread: The last debate

posted at 7:47 pm on February 22, 2012 by Allahpundit

8 p.m. ET on CNN. There’s another debate tentatively scheduled for March 19 on PBS, but if Romney holds on in Michigan and then does well on Super Tuesday, he’ll have no incentive to participate and PBS will have no incentive to air it without him. So this is, in all likelihood, it: The last chance for Santorum to make the case against RomneyCare, the last chance for Romney to convince Republican voters that they’re better off with him for whatever reason, and the last chance for Gingrich to manufacture a poll bounce by grandstanding with the moderators. John King, his old nemesis, is back tonight, but a Gingrich campaign source says they’re eyeing this as an opportunity for him to seem “statesmanlike” while Romney and Santorum maul each other. Other Gingrich advisors tell the NYT that he needs to attack. Who’ll show, Good Newt or Bad Newt? Either way, Gingrich will have to focus on Santorum to try to reposition himself as the conservative alternative to Romney. You know who that benefits?

Two subplots tonight. One: Are Romney and Ron Paul quietly coordinating against Santorum and Gingrich? And if so, what’s Paul getting from Romney to do that? Go read Matt Lewis for an unlikely but irresistible theory on that. Two: How much time will be spent picking through Santorum’s rhetoric on contraception and other cultural hot buttons? His campaign team gently reminded the media today that most Americans share his belief in Satan, but it’s not the theological material that’s most problematic for him. The NYT notices a trend I’ve mentioned before:

The latest poll, conducted in Arizona by NBC News/Marist and released Wednesday, showed that women support Mr. Romney over Mr. Santourm 46 percent to 23 percent. In addition, Mr. Romney has an eight percentage point lead among men.

Some Democrats and others have criticized recent remarks by Mr. Santorum about barring women from combat roles in the military, and his personal disapproval of birth control. The latest polls may be showing the first signs that Mr. Santorum is alienating women — including Republicans — with some of his views.

A separate poll in Michigan by NBC News/Marist showed far less of a gender gap between the front-runners, but there was still a slight divide. Men were evenly split between the two top candidates, but 39 percent of women went for Mr. Romney to 33 percent for Mr. Santorum, a former Pennsylvania senator.

Nationally, Santorum’s numbers with women have vastly improved so I don’t know how to explain the gender gap in Michigan and, especially, Arizona. Can’t wait to see whether Romney tries to exploit it, though. Does he dare challenge Sweater Vest from the left on cultural issues given how skeptical the base already is about Mitt’s conservative bona fides?

Here’s the Hot Air/Townhall widget for livetweeting during the debate. Exit quotation from Haley Barbour: “It is not accurate to say that a hotly contested convention is necessarily bad. I am not saying it is necessarily good, but I don’t think it is accurate to say it is necessarily bad. Let’s just see.”

Update: Here’s CNN.com’s livefeed in case you’re stuck without a TV.

I was a Palin backer but sadly that ship has sailed. The sooner we realize that, the better. A brokered convention = reelection.

Now that The Won has a record to run on, I think 3 of the 4 (sorry Dr. Paul) can win. If gas is $5 or $6/gal this summer, even Dr. Paul or a box of rocks can win.

My continuing subjective impression of Santorum is that he seems to spend a lot of his debate time either looking annoyed, sounding defensive, sounding angry/passionate.

But he seems very…. reactive.

cane_loader on February 22, 2012 at 10:22 PM

Rick and Mitt both need to drop the smirks and annoyed looks. It’s off-putting from both of them. Newt looks like an adult who’s kids are acting up and Ron Paul kept giggling so much the gnomes must have been whispering some funny stuff to him tonight

Santorum stumbled through tonights debate by desperately trying to defend his big-government spending, pro-earmarks record. Particularly damning was his support of Specter over the conservative Toomey. His justification for doing so was that Specter promised him he would vote for conservaative Supreme Court judges. Did he think conservative Toomey would refuse to support conservative judges? He is and has always been a third, or at best, second tier politician. His supporters would gladly abandon him if there were just anyone else left to turn to in protest of Romney…

Bmore on February 22, 2012 at 10:47 PM

……….earlier someone posted that they are ALL part of the problem.

True.

However, we’ve got to pick the candidate that we stand the best chance of getting some limits on the Federal government (and repealing Obamacare).

Paul is just too naive and is really a “blame America” guy.

Mitt is just a HUGE GOVERNMENT Progressive and he uses the language of the Left.

Newt is great on History and has some great ideas on Government reform and Santorum has a imperfect past voting record………but he’s a consistent Conservative.

I liked the explanation of earmarks (which is a paltry sum of $$$$). He’s great on Foreign policy. I liked his answer on Specter (who I don’t like) but I didn’t like his “you take one for the team” crap.

That Satan / religion nutjob meme is just a bunch of nothingburger. He didn’t try to impose Catholicism on the citizens of Pennsylvania so I’m pretty sure we wouldn’t be bowing down to the Pope if Santorum was in the White House.

I’d rather have anyone but a disciple of Alinsky or Marx in the White House.

Santorum has a personality problem. He looks and sounds smug. He’s one of those people who seems a lot nicer at a distance. The more we get to know him, the less likable he becomes.

Romney was Romney tonight. Steady as she goes. Nothing changes. Romneycare is still an albatross around his neck–but he still seems to have the presidential temperament thing down pat.

Newt was playing nice tonight. He won the debate–which, translated, means he helps Romney by remaining viable.

I liked every second of Ron Paul’s arguments. Far from being the nutty uncle, he makes a lot of sense.

Myron Falwell on February 22, 2012 at 10:49 PM

Newt was clearly the best overall in this debate. He really is very knowledgeable and experienced in a way that allows him to give concrete answers and convey intelligent leadership.

Romney was OK, but if he were not a front runner, his debate performance would not make him one.

Paul gave one strong answer about facing up to potential economic collapse, but he coupled it with his non-starter foreign policy. Paul’s foreign policy views make him unacceptable.

Santorum was OK most of the time but weak at times.

In fairness to Newt and to the Republican Party, this should not be the last debate.

Non-geeks have no merits.

Good luck figuring out who Floyd was! I gotta go. Maybe check back later to see if bluegill is floating belly-up.

cane_loader on February 22, 2012 at 10:56 PM

Man, I used to know this. On the tip of my tongue, too.. :-/

cane_loader on February 22, 2012 at 10:52 PM

Yes, but Jailbait the Floyd fan is stumped and busy googling, desperately trying to find out. He is very afraid of answering wrong. He knows I know.

Maybe I’m a Nerd-Dork(Nork) or a Nerd-Geek(Neek).

And what is wrong with you Mittbots out there?

Do you think that Mitt and his “religion” won’t become an issue if he is the frontrunner?

ANYONE……….ANYONE……..that runs against Obama will be SATAN himself.

Mitt hasn’t been roughed up but if he looks like he’s the nominee (God forbid) they’ll be all over him and you’ll see him cower when the OWS clowns start showing up at his houses and rallies, etc.

PappyD61 on February 22, 2012 at 10:50 PM

The MittBots simply do not want to win. They are content with the way that things are, and have no principles or convictions in their body.

Then they want to attack and besmirch the people who have a spine because we refuse to go along with them.

I DESPISE Mitt with a passion, and if he gets the nomination, it won’t matter if I vote for him or not. Mitt will lose to Obama by a double-digit margin.

A friend of mine said he got stung by the tail of a string ray.

That was a life and death matter. he said the pain was beyond imagining and he couldn’t breathe either.

The future of the country lies in the hands of one these four? We are doomed.

Night Owl on February 22, 2012 at 10:42 PM

I’d say that about Nickelback or Creed. NOT Floyd.

Jailbait , you’re stalling. Where did the name for the band Pink Floyd come from?

Bmore on February 22, 2012 at 10:49 PM

Syd Barrett, Pink Floyd’s original guitarist and creative leader, owned recording from American blues musicians Pink Anderson and Floyd Council. Barrett named his band using the first names of these two musicians.

St Gaudens on February 22, 2012 at 11:02 PM

I think that’s where the drugs come in.

You’re sumthin’ alright…what that may be, I’m not entirely sure. But, whatever it is, I’m sure it would get a person banned for mentioning it.

Who the heck would want to live in that loser septic tank of a state?

Full of stupid Texans with a stupid governor.
