In this video commentary, I discuss who won last nights Republican debate in Charleston, South Carolina. One man won the debate. The other will win the election! Tune in!

Series question, has the toe sucker ever been right about anything?
Dick needs to put down the crack pipe, Gingrich has got South Carolina in the bag, and I have $20,000 on the line on Intrade to back up my opinion.
If he’s wrong I’ll have to stop listening to him.
One thing I do miss and that’s Newt’s political analysis. Now I have to listen to Dick Morris.
Jeez. Sounds like Morris is pretty out there, to say the least.
Just overheard Faux News panels saying that Santorum won it as well. Not sure if they’re deliberately spinning, or just seriously disconnected from reality.
No wonder Morris’ dog left and went to Washington.
Was this guy watching the same debate I was!?
What a maroon.
I’m not going to watch the video. The last one I watched annoyed me. Morris needs to change the battery in his smoke detector.
Hey, Dick, weren’t you the one who predicted that Hillary will win the nomination in 2008?
I’ll have what he’s smoking!
One of the great things about this has been watching so many pundits on our side show their true colors. Thanks to Romney we’ve been able ot smoke them out, those who have been hiding in plain sight.
We’ll always know where they stood and whose side they came down on.
It’ll be fun watching them all eat crow tonight and over the next few days.
My question remains “Why on earth would anyone listen to a word Dick has to say?”
By the way, the democrats, who assume and hope Romney will be the guy Obama goes up against have already begun making their anti-Romney Ads.
Democrats Have Already Started Making Ads Against Romney:
You can tell Santorum won the debate because of all the clips of him they kept playing afterwards /s.
Whining does not constitute a debate victory, nor does poll numbers going in reverse at the speed of sound mean Romney will win SC...
Um, I thought Santorum was awful on Thursday. His worst debate. Bad answers on SOPA and “dog ate my tax returns”. Also visuals bad. Sweating forehead. Shaking head when he thought he was off camera. Most answers were weak and he was shaking most of the time during his talks.
What a maroon.
Morris knee-jerked himself with a Twitter tweet dumping on Gingrich while watching the debate.
Hannity is the dumbest guy in conservative talk radio.
If he ever had an original thought it would die from loneliness.
I used to listen to him when he was just a local host on WABC in New York. He basically parroted Rush Limbaugh who occupied the previous time slot.
I’ve never once been wowed by Hannity. He’s not that bright.
What a maroon.
Morris knee-jerked himself into a corner with a Twitter tweet dumping on Gingrich while watching the debate.
Romney will probably funnel money to Santy so he can stay in the race and attack Newt.
There’s a reason why they call him Dick when his real name is Harold.
(Just kidding, his real name is Richard.) :-)
Well Morris isn’t the only one that thinks Newt lost, there’s Ann Coulture, Myth Romney, Chris Cristie, Krauthhammer, John McCain just to name a few. end sarcasm
Morris is becoming a gnat
The Santorum-Gingrich squabble over the early and mid-90s in Congress? Ancient history. But interesting, I find. Santorum says that Newt, in the past, wouldnt stand up and risk his position. Newt kills him on this question. Kills him. Just lays him out. A very unwise line of attack, from Rick.
Santorums comments on being in the Final Four strike me as just slightly Sally Fieldsian. Let me go to the transcript:
. . . to be standing here in the Final Four is about as amazing a thing that I could have ever conceived of happening; someone who had no money; who lost his last race; who everyone basically ignored as I traveled around South Carolina, Iowa, and and New Hampshire and just talked to people.
That sort of thing is for other people to say, I think. But then, I think a lot of what Santorum says about himself is for other people to say, if it is to be said at all.
Harsh? Yeah, possibly.
Santorums closing pitch: Unfair, for one thing, because, unlike the others, he attacks other candidates, and they will not have the opportunity to respond.
Santorum says, Were the only people in this race that actually has won a swing state. I can hear Romney thinking, Well, I won in a liberal state.
More Santorum: I come with the working class and strong credentials, not just with a plan, but with the character that fits in with exactly the voters we need.
Gag me, gag me. Barf, barf.
I just heard Mark Sanford on Fox this morning say that the big focus right now is the economy and jobs the evangelicals will not be enough to help Santorum in SC. He sees Gingrich winning.
Maybe he’s a Newt supporter and he just wants to get us fighting even harder to be sure Romney loses
All of these pundits....are missing the sentence at the end of their shows. Which is, “and if I am wrong, I will shut down my site, and STFU on a permanent basis and find another line of work like maybe being a Wal-Mart greeter.
Morris is really my prime example, I guess. Either these folks are realists and claim to be able to predict things *accurately*, or, like Jim Cramer, they are entertainment and shouldn’t be regarded as having any credibility at all. At ALL. I’m very tired of these pundits who may or may not know they are being used by forces much bigger than they are...a 20% hit rate doesn’t make them a credible source. Indeed, it argues forcibly for the opposite.
Come to think of it, The term “accurate prediction” is redundant. Inaccurate predictions are no different from WAGs, and couching them in some vague cloak of credibility is nothing more than a form of fraud. The truth is, nobody can predict the future.
You beta me to it.
That guy doesn’t know Sheeit from Shinola.
No. If Dick says sell your gold it's time to stock up.
He thinks Mitt will win SC? That's a sure thing for Gingrich.
Richard Weed Morris.
Morris reminds me of the old adage: To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.
Morris says that Santorum has momentum now “maybe enough to pass Newt, maybe enough to be in second” while most updated polls show Santorum in last place, behind Ron Paul (a minority have him in 3rd place).
This guy is a joke. I wonder how he spins the vote result in his next video.
This is great news. He’s typically wrong so that means Newt won both the debate and the election.
I have always felt the same about him. Don’t know whether he still rips off Rush, since I don’t watch or listen to him, but it was blatant years ago. Might as well have called his show the “EIB Echo.”
Morris doesn’t know if ya blow em up or stuff em.
I will credit this to Hannity: He is like the Joe-six-pack of talk radio. He connects to other Repub's and conservatives who are, er, straining to incraese their IQ. And, consider that there are people who are growing or beginning to grow in their conservative beliefs. Hannity serves the purpose of graduating them from elementary conservatism to middle-school conservatism.
Besides, he is wearing the same uniform that we are and his rifle is pointing in the same direction as our rifles are pointing.
Fox's talking heads, even those with radio shows, have been universally transparent in their pathetic "secret" advocacy for Romney.
Ask Sean Hanitty. That Bozo has him on his radio and TV show just about every other day.
I’m one of the few here that enjoys listening to Morris, but he’s dead wrong on this one. In SC Newt will win and it won’t be close. Over 5pts, possible over 10pts.
He also predicted that Hillary would not win the NY senate seat.
20k? Holy Simoleons. I hope for your sake that pans out. He’s running what? 1/0.7 payout?
8.5 if you’re right?
