Comparing the Dems debate to the Rep debate.

The Republicans looked like a sideshow at a god damn circus. How in the hell did they get that many goons and arrogant assholes in one group, not Dr Paul of course. It looked like a normal night on the FOX news network with rude remarks, smirks, etc. I was embarrassed watching it. I am sick of this type attitude in politics.

The Dems looked mature, classy and Presidential and so did Dr. Paul.....except for talking to fast.

My wife could not stand the snipe remarks and the childish laughter.

If it wasn't for Ron Paul, the Republican field would be a joke to me. "Losers" no "Stupid Losers"

Maybe there was good reason for twice as many democrats voting in Iowa than republicans. The Republican party is done.

Only Obi Ron can save it.

The Dems were definitely classier, but both sides had their attacking gears on. The difference is, the Reps teared each other apart like a bunch of kids while the Dems nailed the subtlety.

I think it gets down to quantity of candidates. 6 vs 4, it really does matter. And of course instability of Republican party.

Republicans have no chance in November. I'm not sure republicans can even win with RP with the amount of hate they have spewed on him.

The Democrats looked much more professional and Presidential than the Republicans did, including our man. Unfortunately, he isn't pushy enough to really come across well in a forum like that, and he still can't speak without sounding shrill or segueing into his favorite subjects. I love the man but he really is in need of some professional coaching.

I also agree that, aside from Ron Paul, the democrats appeared much more professional. The constant bickering between McCain, Romney, and, occasionally, Guiliani got to me. That and the fact that they started slamming Ron Paul's foreign policy right at the start made mad at them.

John Edwards and Obama really stood out on the democratic side, I thought. John Edwards especially had some strong moments that would be great for his campaign, but I think the republicans hurt themselves more than anything.

Well, when spreading the word of Ron Paul, I probably won't refrence this particular debate much.

It really is the Democrates election to win. If the Republican party nominates anyone other than the anti-war Ron Paul, they will loose by a LANDSLIDE. Too bad they can't wake up and realize this themselves. And even though I am a Republican, if we loose to Obama or Hilary in November with a guy like Romny on the ticket... serves us right.

Well, they seem to be, mostly, following Bush's plan, which is bad news. Nobody wants to continue following this stupid plan, and only Ron Paul makes sense. Unfortunately, the other candidates ruthlessly attack him.

Wow I saw it the complete opposite.

I saw the democrats looking incredibly weak and powerless. I can only hope Paul gets to go against barack or hillary. He'll chew them up and spit them out. The fake republicans were all attacking Ron. If he can handle them, he can make minced meat out of the socialist dems. It's certainly clear that anyone who is a democract these days, is very big govt. and socialist by that debate.

I didn't mean all the Reps, or Reps vs. Dems... just the immaturity of Rudy, mCain, Thompson, etc laughing at Ron. That was the sideshow.

Having Ron Paul in there upset the group. It was like having a lion in a cage with a pack of jackals, drove them crazy.

Betcha they'll all be a lot more suave at the Fox event.

Not much difference between the Republicans and Democrats. The Republicans lie to you and pretend they believe in the Constitution. The Dems don't even mention the document. They say they want change, meaning they will be running the show instead of the Republicans. They will be telling us what to do and forcing their programs down our throats. Your choice is Fascism/ Socialism or Socialism/Fascism, take your pick.

The dems do not have anything to really disagree about, so of course they look more professional. I guarantee you, if you threw Ron Paul into the mix, it would have looked the same. Clinton would have totally lost her cool. Obama would have just sat stumped, for once at a loss for words.
