OK, I’m small minded and petty but what is up with Mitt’s hair? This is perhaps literally letting his hair down. Thompson is definitely peppy and throws an elbow at Romney but with good humor and another at Kennedy. Thompson goes after Rudy on social issues and Rudy responds on tort reform, Thompson back on sanctuary cities and Rudy on executive experience. They both looked sharp. McCain belittles the short time Thompson and Rudy served. McCain gets asked about the lawyers, “the last people” he’d ask and says to Romney, and says directly to him, that he has spent a year “fooling people about his record.” He warns him not to fool people about his record. This is not beanbag folks. Romney says would act immediately to protect US and goes back to original question to explain role of Congress. He leaves McCain’s attack on his credibility unreturned. He looks less feisty than his opponents who seem to have all had an extra cup of coffee.
