The Newt And Herman Debate—America is “Entitled” to More Like This - "Critics complained that Newt and Herman agreed too much—so we cannot call this a debate. But that was what was so great. They were not looking for reasons to nitpick each other, or strutting for the punchy jab, or sinking into new lows of pettifoggery. They were refreshingly serious—no theatrics, no pettiness." - Debbie Georgatos

My Thoughts on the Cain-Gingrich Debate - "Both candidates helped themselves in their own way. Gingrich showed that he has the mastery of the issues and Obama better hope he doesn’t debate Gingrich for Gingrich would expose Obama's shallow policy knowledge. As for Cain, he is a good closer and there is a connection to the audience that he maintains." - Tom Donelson
Winners and Losers—The Lincoln Douglas Debate between Herman Cain and Newt Gingrich is a Historic Step Forward - "Ironically, a candidate who was not in attendance also 'won'. Several ideas that started in this campaign with Texas Governor Rick Perry were touted by both Cain and Gingrich, such as more reliance on the 10th Amendment to the Constitution and the idea that the Founders set up the Federal system because 'competition is good', block grants to states, strategic multi-pronged approaches to closing the border, and loser pays laws to reduce frivolous lawsuits." - Mark Ramsey

Cain And Gingrich Debate/Who's Not Serious? - Larry Perrault discusses the Cain-Gingrich Debate and the media backlash over the Cain harassment allegations. "[Traditional media people] live in such a constricted culture that they actually think the reflexes of them and fellow members of the professional political class are serious and important. They aren’t. They believe they know what is significant and need to enlighten the rest of us. They don’t.” - Larry Perrault
The Gingrich and Cain Debate: The Philosopher and the Empty Suit - "In an effort to bring an impetus of reform, we are attracted to a candidate who says all of the correct things that ring true in our ears with little if any substance. Are we not intelligent enough to understand that is how we elected our current leader in 2008? As Americans, we fell prey to the concept of change with the poetical speeches of the Obama campaign. Currently with Cain, we are hypnotized with the idea that a Rocket Scientist/Business man could reverberate solutions for our current disasters. Yet in hindsight, when we look over our eagerness for change, can we be honest with ourselves and ask, Have we not learned?" - Linda Vega

The Cain-Gingrich Debate On November 5, 2012 - A Great Disappointment! - "Cain and Gingrich want to do what Perry has already implemented in Texas and plans to do for America if elected as our president. It would be great to have Governor Rick Perry debate in this Lincoln-Douglas format so that we would have an opportunity to learn what he has in mind for America. As far as I am concerned Cain and Gingrich came to Texas to discuss Governor Rick Perry’s policies and if the audience did not get that, then where have they been!" - Sonja Harris
