GOP Debate Reaction

Could Mitt Romney be more of a rich asshole? He actually thinks only rich people should run this country. Wow.--SS

GOP Debate Reaction:

The knives were out against Mitt Romney from the opening moments of this morning's Republican presidential debate and for the first time, his rivals actually drew blood. Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum took on Romney's claims that he wasn't a "career politician" even though he's been running for office since 1994.

Romney's weakest moment was suggesting that only rich people should run for office by citing his father's advice to him: "Mitt, never get involved in politics if you have to win an election to pay a mortgage." He then bragged about his unsuccessful attempt to unseat Ted Kennedy: "I was happy he had to take a mortgage out on his house to ultimately defeat me."

In the end, however, the debate was probably more about the race to finish second to Romney in New Hampshire. Rick Santorum, Ron Paul, Jon Hunstman, Newt Gingrich and Rick Perry all had decent performances but none had a breakout moment that should substantially change the results of Tuesday's primary.
