The great Republican Debate of 2011,

The republican debate, if your 99% of the American population you didn't miss anything.
Showing how out of touch the Republican presidential candidates are with the majority of American's the word middle class never came up.  They didn't talk about education either.  I can't wait for the next "pawns of the wealthy" debate.

DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz succinctly summarized  the debate:
"The debate tonight put into stark relief the contrast between the Republican presidential candidates and President Obama. Republicans want to roll back the protections President Obama put in place to make sure another financial crisis of the magnitude we saw in 2008 could not happen again. President Obama is making the tough decisions to get our country going in the right direction, has taken our economy from job losses to 15 straight months of job gains, cut taxes 26 times, and focused like a laser on getting the middle class back on its feet while those campaigning to replace him have failed to show they can lead on these issues.
Under Mitt Romney’s leadership Massachusetts was 47th out of 50 states in job creation. And thanks to Tim Pawlenty, Minnesota was left with a $6.2 billion projected deficit. The fact is, when it comes to economic leadership, the Republicans have nothing to brag about. This isn’t what the American people want. They want to see progress that works for them. Tonight we were reminded that Republican candidates have nothing to offer but the failed policies the American people have already rejected."
