Thompson First Up
We didn't have to wait long to hear from Fred Thompson in today's debate -- his first.
Asked by CNBC's Maria Bartiromo whether or not the country was on the verge of a recession, Thompson said he did not believe that was the case before pivoting into a broader answer about the long term health of the economy.
"The short term is rosy. Ten year projections, it's rosy," he said before adding: "We are spending money we do not have. We are spending the money of future generations and those yet to be born."
Thompson's tone was generally dour and serious. He appeared to briefly space out during his first answer. But, overall, no harm no foul.
