Why didn't Paul get a foreign policy question?

Figures he wanted DADT back.

I keep getting Johnson and Huntsman mixed up. They look similar.

So the UN should only be American allies?

Too bad that's almost impossible at this point, Saintly Rick.

Another Reagan drop. It's nearly a drinking game.

There's no point in bringing it up. Everyone on that stage wants a fence.

I'd axe Homeland Security before Education.

Aand Santorum gets booed. I blame Dan Savage.

Do you know Utah went for in their first presidential election? WJBryan, and at over 80% of the vote it was one of his best states - only to narrowly go to McKinley in the 1900 rematch. by 1912 they were Taft's best state. 

Because the Mormon Church told them to vote for McKinley.

So why did FDR win Utah all four times, in addition to going for LBJ in 1964?

New Mexico and Wyoming tie. I flip coin. Heads New Mexico, Tails Wyoming.

Tails.

That's because Afghanistan was pushed to the sidelines from 2003-2008.

multiple undeclared wars

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vietnam_War
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_occupation_of_the_Dominican_Republic_(1965–1966)

Plus all sorts of other Cold War bombing campaigns that didn't involve "boots on the ground."

Also extrajudicial killings of US civilians... Cool

Well, that's true but there was only one major war to speak of. Under Obama we really have 2-3 going on plus lesser bombing campaigns.

Note the use of the phrase openly. Wink

Obama inherited both of those wars.

There's a book about him titled Traitor to His Class for a reason.

Why do you all think Obama is more authoritarian than Johnson?

Yet again, Jesus would have had trouble in 1792/1936/1964/1972/1984 against the incumbents

So, I went back and rewatched the debate on my DVR and caught something that I managed to miss completely the first time. Did anyone else catch Huntsman's completely awkward Kurt Cobain reference? He said something along the lines of: "In Gov. Romney's book 'No Apology', I don't know if that was written by Kurt Cobain or not.....".  Word of advice: If you're trying to avoid looking like a square, referencing a band who sold millions of records 20 years ago is a poor way to go about it.

Also, I hadn't given it much thought, but doesn't Cain's "9-9-9 plan" seem oddly reminiscent of Dominos "5-5-5 deal"?

yeah, we caught it.  I posted "All Apologies" in the debate thread at the time.  There's nothing wrong with referencing a song, or any item of popular culture.  But "No Apology" is a book by Mitt Romney, not a song by Nirvana.  He confused the titles.  That's probably why you missed it last night.

And yes, the Godfather's plan sounding like the Dominos deal was remarked on as well. 

Last night I read an article that gave the candidates Nirvana theme songs:

Perry: “Territorial Pissings”
Romney: “The Man Who Sold the World”
Bachmann: “About a Girl”
Huntsman: “All Apologies”
Ron Paul: “You Know You’re Right” and/or “Come As You Are”
Cain: "Big Cheese"
Gingrich: “Big Long Now”
Santorum: “Jesus (Doesn't Want Me for a Sunbeam)”

Yes, two of those are covers, but still.

Got this from an article I read, it said Cain took Paul's place as the Oddball of the hopefuls.
