Well, I'm not a poker player I'm more of a Texas two-stepper but I'd say Gov. Perry more than held his own vs. Romney on Social Security and handily won on jobs again.
Bachmann punched Perry on Gardasil for young girls, deservedly so as it was by executive fiat, though with a parental opt out. (I tend to think she went too far too, though.) The legislature later overrode him so it's not law now. More worrying was the whiff of crony capitalism with his former top aide buddy buddy with a drug company.
The other candidates had some spirited moments, with Newt suggesting the president was scary every day, Dr. Ron Paul with a great health care moment, but called out by Santorum for his bizarro foreign policy, and Herman Cain solid on zinging D.C. Immigration is a touchy issue, with Perry arguing for personnel to police the border, not a fence, makes sense with that big river, but the TX version of the Dream Act is troubling--needs more explanation.
Somewhere I saw a lone tweet from Howard Fineman wanting to question Perry's cotton subsidies on his Paint Creek Ranch way back. Let 'er rip. And we'll look forward to the same no holds barred approach from the PC media in the general, yessirree.
