The GOP roundtable debate forum on Fox

Lots of reax around the blogosphere to tonight’s debate, broadcast on Fox – the last one before New Hamphsire.

Romney’s getting positive reviews from Powerline, Bryan at Hot Air (good video highlights from the debate there), Mary Katharine Ham, Mark Halperin, and a Frank Luntz focus group, among others, including of course Romney fan Hugh Hewitt.

Mark Steyn, on the other hand, thinks Romney did badly and will have to do better if he wants to win New Hampshire. John Hawkins has declared Romney the “loser” of tonight’s debate.

Me? From what little I watched tonight, Fred sounded really good and got in some spot-on remarks about the positions of his opponents but once again I get the idea that he’s not extremely enthusiastic about being in the race. I like what he has to say, but I just wish he’d say it with more passion.

All that said, McCain is still the man to beat in New Hampshire, as he’s polled ahead in the last two weeks worth of polling coming out of that state, one that Romney once looked to have in the palm of his hand. Tuesday should be verrry interesting – on both sides of the aisle.
