GOP Debate Underway
Before we start, a quick note. This is NOT meant to be a transcript of the debate so please don't take it as one. We'll be typing right along as the candidates talk and doing our best to document the highlights and lowlights. But consider this excerpts not a transcript.
Let's get to it...
The first question for Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) went right to the heart of the matter -- What do you need to win the war in Iraq?
McCain, who spoke haltingly at first and seemed a bit nervous, largely stuck to his campaign script. "We have a new general...We have a new strategy...That strategy can succeed."
McCain did not resist criticizing the past policies of the Bush Administration toward Iraq, however. He said the war was "terribly mismanaged," adding: "We now have to fix a lot of mistakes."
Former Gov. Mitt Romney invoked former President Ronald Reagan when asked about why the next American president should not bow to public opinion polls showing that the American people have soured on the war. "Ronald Reagan was a president of strength," said Romney.
