Romney gives a polished spiel about fixing Washington. McCain essentially hits it out of the park talking about changing Iraq and changing spending practices in Washington. He then does something new which seems to work: imagine what I can do as president he essentially argues. Very well done. Huckabee talks about specific programs in his state. Thompson points out that Huckabee earlier criticized the tax pledge and later signed it when pressure built. He talks about accomplishments when he was in Senate and 100% pro-life record. He gives a forceful defense of rule of law and conservative principles. He and McCain are just excellent. Huckabee argues he made welfare reform work and created jobs. Everyone was solid on that round.
