Cain/Bachmann and I can sleep at night again ;-)
This is quite possibly the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard of.
Rusty Humphries is a favorite of mine.
If Sarah doesn't hop in, that ticket works for me. I would love to see Palin/West or Palin/Cain. Either of those would really open my checkbook :)
Apparently you don't hear yourself speak.
None of whom will beat Obama. I’ll skip this “debate.”
As if the 30-second to 1-minute Q&A “debates” aren’t bad enough, now we have this crap Twitter site with its 140-character limitations.
On the bright side we won't have the Obama / Pawlenty method of telling a story or spouting talking points until time runs out.
Have you stopped beating your wife?
Bachmann’s opening statement:
TeamBachmann .@140townhall TY for this forum. @I’m running 4 POTUS 2 bring the voice of the people back to DC. @That voice requires fundamental changes.
TeamBachmann .@140townhall Fundamental change in how we spend #taxpayer $, & return to constitutional principles of ltd govt and personal responsibility
TeamBachmann .@140townhall Obama failed. With ur help we can return the people’s voice to the WH, restore fiscal sanity, & make Obama a 1 term president.
Gingrich opening statement:
newtgingrich Thx to @140townhall @secupp @TalktoRusty @TheTeaParty_net @NYKellen @ @DustinStockton @AndrewHemingway
newtgingrich As conservatives we know replacing a Dem w/ a Repub is not enough to return America back to job creation and balanced budgets. @140townhall
newtgingrich If I am elected the next time a president says the era of big govt is over hell mean it. My intro video: http://t.co/sus1ifk @140townhall
We ought to have a FreeRepublic candidate debate, moderated by JimRob. It would beat the heck out of that Twitter crap.
Thad McCotter’s opening statement:
ThadMcCotter .@140townhall Our American Dream is endangered. America’s dismantling. Abroad, our troops fight terrorists & tyrants; Iran goes nuclear;
ThadMcCotter .@140townhall& communist China claims the 21st Century. At home, R 14 mil unemployed; 30+ mil underemployed; inflation up; real wages down.
ThadMcCotter .@140townhallBig Govt & Big Biz claim they are bigger than We, the People. And we wonder if we matter anymore. You matter more than ever!
I didn’t even know he would be in the debate. he wasn’t listed in the opening article.
I agree, but I’d make a terrible moderator. Need someone better versed in issues and political campaigning. Hey, how about you?
Having seen the treatment that other candidates have been given when they’ve signed in on FR I would be very suprised if any of them would show up.
It’d been fun the first time Willard went to answer a question and you shouted FUMR.
I happen to be his wife...
you may want to rephrase the crapt you type...
Yup. Completely biased and tactless moderator. And proud of it.
