Thanks for the link.

I hope finally, the conservatives in the race (Santorum, Perry and Newt) actually challenge Romney on his flip flops...

Hopefully they keep the pressure on Willard to release his financial record. FOX reported this morning that although WIllard left Bain in 1999 he was still receiving over 15 million a year in 2006-7. Seems it only depends on the meaning of the word “left”

ALso has come to attention of freepers that Huntsman is willard’s cousin and that his family business is connected big time to Bain. IOW the run in NH was just a manipulation to keep the conservatives from getting delagates.

and YES I’m madder than heii.

Placemark and a little trick I learned that might come in handy for all those double and triple posts:

When you click on post and it seems like it freezes, open another window to Free Republic and check your pings. It might well have already posted. It happens to me all the time and it’s FR, not the machine.
Since I tried that, I have never had another double post. Just close the posting window that froze and keep on keeping on.

See you guys later.

It’s starting to look, boys and girls, like sooner or later we may very well have to decide in the general election between voting for Romney or not voting (= a vote for Obama). As distasteful Romney is to most here, we have to ask the question: Which is worse the next four years? IMO, another four years of Obama is a worst case scenario.

[is it going to be the Mitt show?]

They will try, as usual, but Newt knows THIS primary is the whole ball of wax. If they try to isolate him as they have been doing he’s not going to silenced...not this time.

I’m tagging him “Neutron Newt”.

Perry is also asking the Willard produce his financial records.

That makes Sarah, Newt and Perry making the request.

Newt has given him till Thursday. Wonder what the or else is going to be.

James Rosen’s blurb on the morning shows, indicates that FOX is aware of problem. He was being VERY favorable to Mitt, like giving him a chance to explain. Hope Brett and the WSJ goes for the Pulitzer....Expose the faux front runner for what he is.

We will able to tell how afraid the other candidates are of Newt because they will avoid mentioning his name to give a rebuttal response.

This is one of the tricks they have been using all along

Willard the Lib with his partner in crime, Teddy Kennedy gave us $50 abortions and the public option under RomneyCare’s mandates, exchanges, and subsidies.

Even Obama the Lib didn’t go THAT far.

Electing Willard will only set back conservatism by decades.

No need to watch it, Romney won. Romney is already picked by the GOP as the nomination and nothing will change that. All the media including Fox is burying Newt.

Also, Newt is known to stray a little from the moderators question to do just that

Gingrich generally does that in order to frame his answer based on contextual historical facts. The others just prattle on with little or nothing to substantiate their responses.

One very simple example is the following video clip when an MSNBC reporter interviewed Gingrich and made an unsubstantiated comment regarding Palin:

.

Newt Gingrich destroys MSNBC reporter

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YsUw2Vq8UMw&feature=related

.

Could anyone else, including Palin herself, respond as simply, factually, and succinctly as Gingrich did in the above clip? And turn the tables on the foolish reporter who was incapable of answering Gingrich's question at the end of the interview?

This is why Gingrich can defeat Obama (with or without his teleprompter).

Also, if your post is being “processed”, there is always a little wheel moving under “posting comment” in the upper left hand corner.
So patience...sometimes it takes a while.

They most definitely should not unite against Mitt. They need to take each other out. No matter how many points they shave off Mitt as long as there are 4 of them left standing at the end of the night Mitt wins. Newt needs to make the case to the voters why they need to call and email Santorum and Perry and ask them to drop out and endorse Newt before the vote next week. I can’t see any other way that Mitt doesn’t wrap this up in 2 weeks. Unless Ron Paul (who will never quit) polls 50% against Romney 1 on 1 and I don’t see that in my crystal ball.

Santorum: This is the kind of outright lies and the hypocrisy that Gov. Romney is engaged in, not just with Newt Gingrich now but with anybody who stands in his way. You can get away with it, obviously, if you’ve got millions of dollars to spend and you go out there lying and people don’t hold you accountable. Well, we are. And let me assure you that everybody else in this race is going to start to do the same

Looks like Santorum has dropped the 'Mr. Nice Guy' gloves .... lets hope he, Newt, & even Perry can get some traction against Romney. Prefer they go after Obama, but if the GOP insists on running "Obama-lite" against Obama, the incumbent wins.

2012: MItt Romney vs. Barack Obama

Just vote for the lesser of the two evils.

2016: Howard Dean vs. Barney Frank

Just vote for the lesser of the two evils.

2020: Cynthia McKinney vs. Larry Flynt

Just vote for the lesser of the two evils.

2024: Kim Jong-un vs. Ayman Al-Zawahiri

Just vote for the lesser of the two evils.

Pay no attention to the general trend. You have a nice seat in the handbasket. Just keep repeating: “Cesspools are our friends.”

These three (Perry, Newt, Santorum) should sit down together and make their peace. Only one enemy tonight.

Perry has nothing to lose. I say he asks Romney straight up how he's supposed to repeal Obamacare when it's modeled after Romneycare.

Then Perry should hit Romney on job creation. 100k next to how many for Perry & TX?

People are buying into the entrepreneur/business crap from Romney, that he can bring the jobs. Stop the madness.

I have been expecting Newt to totally ignore the asked questions and simply say what needs saying.

Perhaps tonight is the night for it.

Throw a little Lincoln/Douglass out there.

What can they do? drag him off the stage, stop the show, scream and shout.

Romney has been dancing around that for months. His typical response -- Obamacare is national = bad; Romneycare is state = good.

--

Chris Wallace did hit Romney on funding for Romneycare months ago in a FoxNews Sunday interview. Romney had been saying that he did not have to raise taxes in MA to pay for Romneycare.

Wallace responded, 'you didn't have to raise taxes to pay for Romneycare because you got Federal money to implement it.'

Yeah, the fix is in for Romney. I wish I were the type to give up, life would be easier.

What I really think Perry should say tonight is “You all can go to Hell, I’m going to Texas!”

And then he needs to take a really long shower, try to wash the stench of corruption off from these clowns.
