Live Analysis: GOP Presidential Debate

October 11, 2011
8:40 Jessica Taylor: Danger zone: Perry finally gets a question and gives a rambling, unfocused response to a question about Reagan, seems to throw BBA out there as a last gasp. But Romney's ready with a much more succinct answer. 8:39 Kathy Kiely: Texas is ahead 1-0 in the ACLS. The same cannot be said of this debate. 8:31 Josh Kraushaar: Expect Romney's line reiterating his opposition to the GM/Chrysler bailouts to be used in an Obama campaign commercial in Michigan, if he emerges as the GOP nominee. 8:26 Kathy Kiely: Where is Perry? It seems like years since we've heard from him. 8:25 Kathy Kiely: The rewards of being a front runner: Cain is the target of one of Huntsman's dubious jokes. Huntsman says 9-9-9 sounds like the price of pizza. 8:21 Jessica Taylor: Angling for Palin's endorsement? Gingrich latches on to her "death panels" characterization. 8:17 Josh Kraushaar: Huntsman's painful comedy stylings aren't going to win him a spot at the DC Improv. Perry's expression reacting to his "DC is the capital of gas" line was priceless. 8:15 Jessica Taylor: Challenging Obama for most unpopular title in tonight's debate? Ben Bernake, Chris Dodd and Barney Frank. As a former tax attorney, Bachmann laid out a nuanced argument, but Gingrich won that round for the most passion behind his argument. 8:14 Josh Kraushaar: Gingrich is the latest to offer a scathing attack against Fed Chair Ben Bernanke, coming close to Perry's earlier suggestion he was engaged in treasonous behavior. Ron Paul can now declare victory. 8:11 Kathy Kiely: Newt just lost his movie preview privileges too. 8:10 Kathy Kiely: There goes Bachmann's free tickets to movie previews. She's blaming former Sen. Chris Dodd, who now heads the Motion Picture Association of America, for the Wall Street meltdown? 8:08 Jessica Taylor: Romney's the first to try to make this all about Obama, and why not? His goal here is to solidify his electability argument -- bolstered by today's endorsement from Chris Christie. Look for that theme to continue all through the night, with the other candidates trying to get a bite out of Romney. 8:07 Kathy Kiely: Both Romney and Perry emphasized their willingness to work with Democrats. Are they seeing something in the polls we don't know? Intriguing strategy when they're trying to win over the GOP red meat crowd. 8:06 Josh Kraushaar: Note that Perry repeated the talking point that he's worked with members on "the other side of the aisle" in his opening answer. But with Republicans dominant in Texas during his governorship, he hasn't had to work with minority Democrats often to get legislation passed. 8:03 Kathy Kiely: Cain gets the first question. That says a lot right there.
