I like to turn the sound off and make up my own dialog.
Mitt “I look great in a suit.”
Perry “So do I, and I can kick you’re #$$”.
Did I? I take it that you think Ron Paul is a nut. Correct me if I misunderstood you.
Perry got in a good dig.
And another ...
“Blitzer is gonna wear these people out. He’s pressing all the hot buttons.”
As much as I hate these venues and moderators, they are being well prepped for the coming debates against Obama. What kind of prep is he getting from the fawning press corp. He’s gonna crumble without a teleprompter.
Myth...my grandma knows it's a Ponzi scheme. She's skeert of you, Myth!!!
Romney is SUCH a tool.
Sounds like the audience is with Perry over Mitt.
Mitt seemed to be getting one over on Perry.....
I want a debate, not a Romney-Perry show.
Rick just buried Mitt :)
The audience doesnt like Myth.
Exactly correct! From the naming of the show, to the defining the candidates.
Your wishes have POWER!
Hugh Hewitt is running it with commentary and the drinking game phrase is Social Security.
There are more than two candidates up there Wolf.
I think the other candidates went back to the green room.
This is a GREAT discussion on SS by all the candidates. I love it!!
Cain is tooting Perrys horn on Galveston!
Mittens is desperately trying to stop Perry.
Cain: I don’t care what you call it, it’s broken. YES IT IS. Don’t take the bad bait people.
