 National Review‘s Kathryn Jean Lopez: “Taking Washington apart. This is a strong outsider argument — that rings true. Romney would do it because he has.” (Kathryn Jean Lopez, “Taking Washington Apart,” National Review’s The Corner, http://corner.nationalreview.com, Posted 1/10/08)

 ABC’s Rick Klein: “Ahh, the R-word. ‘Could we be headed for a recession? Absolutely. Do we have to be headed for a recession?

 ·         Hewitt: “The opening response on the economy, aimed specifically at Michigan voters was very strong, and his ‘Nope’ answer to Wallace’s question about whether the voters in New Hampshire might be saying that they do not want change in D.C. was perfect pitch…” (Hugh Hewitt, “Tonight’s Debate,” Townhall Blog, http://hughhewitt.townhall.com, Posted 1/10/08)

 National Review‘s Kate O’Beirne: “It wasn’t a friendly question, but Chris Wallace did Romney a favor. Solid answer on reforming Washington by a guy with a track record.” (Kate O’Beirne, “Again The Outsider,” National Review‘s The Corner, http://corner.nationalreview.com, Posted 1/10/08)

 ·         O’Beirne: “Mitt Romney’s optimism recalls Reagan.” (Kate O’Beirne, “Nice Outsider Appeal,” National Review‘s The Corner Blog, http://corner.nationalreview.com/, Posted 1/10/08)

 The American Spectator‘s Quin Hillyer: “Now Romney gets a tough question on abortion. He starts out with a really really strong answer. Now he segues back to Reagan.

 ·         Hillyer: “Romney says people do NOT want “Washington experience” more than change. Gives a good litany of complaints against Washington. Also gives the best, most concise and effective summary of his own experience that I have heard yet from him in this campaign. Good answer.” (Quin Hillyer, “Change Or Experience?” American Spectator‘s AmSpec Blog, http://www.spectator.org, Posted 1/10/08)

 National Review‘s Jim Geraghty: “Paul’s argument that the threat from Iran is overstated was a high, hanging curve, and it was a solid hit from Romney.” (Jim Geraghty, “The Debate Shifts To Iranian Speedboats,” National Review‘s The Campaign Spot Blog, http://campaignspot.nationalreview.com/, Posted 1/10/08)
