Dave from Michigan said the debate was interesting and Mitt Romney stood out for his overall breadth. He believes Romney will bring leadership and real world experience to the position.
Ryan says it was important to see candidates with principles. He doesn't believe Herman Cain got enough air time and Rick Perry is "Texas toast."

Rep. Michele Bachmann says America has got to stop enriching China with our money, and we do that by stop borrowing from them, and stop spending money we don't have.

John Huntsman says we should set up some sort of fund, paid for by the banks, that takes the risk away from tax payers.
I would turn those GSEs into private entities, says Herman Cain. "The government does not need to be in that business. I would find a way to unwind Fannie May and Freddie Mac."
