GOP Debate Reaction

Mitt Romney wasn't his best tonight as he faced scathing attacks from Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich. It's unclear how long either of them will remain in the race, but they're doing Romney no favors as the likely GOP nominee.

The most interesting moment of the debate was Romney's reluctant statement that he would release his tax returns around the April 15th deadline. It's very possible the issue of his effective tax rate will be an even bigger in the general election than his record as head of Bain Capital.

The most depressing moment of the debate was when it was pointed out Romney's father was born in Mexico and the audience booed.

And finally, Jon Huntsman had a good debate.
