Gary Johnson Debate

Gary Johnson Debate
Are you tired of the Republican debates yet? On Fox today / Google-sponsored GOP showdown in Orlando, Texas Governor Rick Perry sure acted like he was. The man was clearly in need of a wake-up juice. He yawned. He pondered. He spoke slowly, even for Rick Perry. By the end of the discussion, he was trying to figure out how to "assistant" Herman Cain with Newt Gingrich for his veep slot. Who is ready for Rick Perry-Hernewt Caingritch in 2012?

Do not think that matchup is fairly catchy ring to it? How about Gary Johnson, Ron Paul? Former Governor of New Mexico, and several copies of Reason features of the subject was asked to quickly select his running mate from the crew at the scene, picked up Dr. No, he also proposed to balance the budget by reducing federal spending by 43 percent (!) More or less immediately, and delivered the most memorable nights in one line: "My neighbor's dog on a shovel ready to create more jobs, that this administration." * There is no such thing as a shovel ready!

Speaking of dogs, that's what this debate is unnecessary. Literally. Fox News anchor who moderated the opening announcement at an early stage that they would have changed the sound of time's-the last debate, after numerous complaints that the previous ding sounded too much like a doorbell, and was freaking audience puppies.

Hernewt CaingritchMeanwhile, most entertaining evening revolved around the struggle between Rick Perry and former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, both of whom were vying to be top dog in the field of GOP presidential.

With a little prodding by moderator, they tussled on Social Security for Obamacare, on their slippers and their respective books, which can not be entirely fair, given that Mitt Romney seems to have read the book, Rick Perry, while it is not clear that Perry.

The biggest squabble between the two is likely to immigration. When Romney went after the record in the Texas governor particular, his decision to immigrant children attend public schools in the state of education in the rate-Perry repeated his call for "boots on the ground" at the border. Of the two, he was a moderate immigration.

There were a few unexpected moments scattered throughout the night Michele Bachmann in response to subsequent tax question, saying that Americans have the right to keep every dollar they earn, but also noting that "obviously" we need to collect revenue to run the government, John Hunter delivered a lengthy discourse about his distaste for green energy subsidies ... just to finish, noting that "if there were a way to get the ball rolling" on alternative energy sources, it would be for him.

But apart from the entry of Johnson, the discussion was quite outdated, especially for those of us who have slogged through previous prime-time by the podium. Despite its recent surge in the polls, Ron Paul, seemed less important than in previous tours, perhaps partly because of the lack of welcome many question-and-libertarian pitfalls. Newt Gingrich went on the question of questions, as if working on a discussion of the Ombudsman (or, given his stated desire to "control 100 percent of the border", a kind of deity). Former executive pizza Cain once again mentioned the "Chilean model" that you do not have to Google in the office, and touted his plan to deliver a pizza 9-9-9 in the nine-nine dollars in nine minutes, or something. There were words of a cloud, and graphs showing how federal departments poll respondents most wanted to get rid of. Rick Santorum was there too.
