Wednesday night, GOP Presidential hopefuls held their big debate. The most heated exchange came when Mitt Romney touted his job creation record. Rick Perry shot back that Michael Dukakis had a better record than Mitt. Then Mitt fired back that Perry’s predecessor, George W. Bush, had a better record than Perry.
- George W. Bush reportedly yelled, “Hey Laura! Come in here! They’re talking about what a great job I did on the TV!”
The strangest audience reaction had to be when one of the two moderators began a question by noting that under Governor Perry, Texas had executed 234 people, and applause broke out.
- Those who applauded were all Democrats who realized that’s 234 people who won’t be voting for Perry in 2012!
- The twice-divorced Newt Gingrich immediately tried to get in on the whole “Texas Thing” by yelling, “Remember the Alamo-ny!”
