Huck gives a perfectly wonderful answer to play to the crowd. Very well done. He sounds believably tough. I don’t believe him, personally,but I think 99.9% of the people would believe him. Again, well done.
Thompson gets off GREAT line about “the virgins” the jihadists want to see (i.e., they’ll be dead).
Giuliani makes a good point about the National Intelligence Estimate, sort of… but may not have done it skilfully enough. Good answer from then on, on substance, but not as good stylistically as Huck and Thompson.
McCain makes a sober, strong, right-on-target defense of the American commander. This subject plays into his greatest strengths.
Paul: “I would certainly urge a lot more caution than I’m hearing here tonight.” Then blasts Gulf of Tonkin response that started Vietnam War. Then goes on, finally, to make it sound like he would never defend the US ever. He’s the “please kick sand in our face” candidate.
Romney takes a hard shot at Paul; Well deserved, but it just sounded a little too mean. The rest of Romney’s answer is right on target.
