The candidates are sitting down tonight.
Mitt Romney has a great introduction – and quotes George Costanza.

Mitt doesn’t hesitate to attack Rick Santorum on his spending record.

Newt describes trillions in tax revenue if US lands were opened up for drilling and exploration.

Ron Paul: I called Rick Santorum a fake because he’s a fake.

Ron Paul: Conservatives are pleased with spending money overseas (They’re warmongers.)

SILENCE – NO APPLAUSE after Santorum defends earmarks. Ouch.

Earmark discussion brings out boos from the crowd.

AriFleischer: Newt is impressive tonight and he keeps making thoughtful points.

It sounds like Mitt stacked the audience again tonight.

Newt and Mitt and Rick have a great grasp on Syrian predicament… Ron Paul? Not so much.
