Quotes of note
The Republican debate Tuesday night saw tensions rise to a new level, as Mitt Romney and Rick Perry really got into it. Here’s what their strategists had to say after the debate:
“He’s extremely thin-skinned. He got very rattled, and I think that’s something we hadn’t seen before.” - Chief Perry strategist Dave Carney, talking about Romney.
“People are looking for a lot of qualities in the next president, and someone who responds to losing debates with anger is not a quality that they particularly like.
