Huntsman is dying out there.
Newt is going for highlight reel moments.
I think they’re gonna go at it tonight in the parking lot!!!!!!!
They love NOOT! They are chanting NOOTNOOTNOOT!
He’s a master debater. No one up there could take him one on one.
I love Newt. And Paul.
Newt reminds everyone that Obama is scaring people, saying the checks can’t be guaranteed.
Says younger people should have right to choose their social sec plan.
Well said, Newt. Guy is bright and funny but unelectable. too bad
Lost the feed so I missed Perry's answer. Romney attacking Perry.
Ron Paul talking about war spending.
Cain doesn't care what you call it: it's broken. Mentions Galveston's opt-out experience, says transition to personal retirement accounts.
Err Huntsman name drops Kurt Cobain?
Newt says hes' not worried about Romney or Perry scaring because Obama scares the American people every day. Mentions Obama refusing to guarantee the checks would be paid. Newt says full employment, no change for existing beneficiaries. Personal accounts for younger workers.
Newt is tearing them up. Dang he is good, Dang his baggage.
Dont need to worry about GOP candidates scaring old people when Obama does it each and every day. LOL! Gotta give Newt that one and Im not a supporter.
Huntsman made some odd comment about Kurt Cobain...pretty lame.
No I guess you did understand.
You see, I call him a nut because he is a nut.
I don't hate Ron Paul I just have no desire to have a nut like him as President.
As to you not liking it, no worries I'll sleep just fine.
“Big Thinker” Newt’s clearly the most facile up on the stage, but he’s borrowing from Gov. Palin’s Indianola speech tonight: first saying he’ll fight special interests in DC, then pointing out Obama’s threats against SS getting paid during the debt crisis.
I think L. Ron is a nutball.
He hasn't gotten to the good stuff yet, like the fear of a border fence keeping us in.
Haaalp! We can't get oouut!
THIS IS GREAT!!!!!
Santorum is doing great tonight.
Newt is vital in these debates.
It is a shame. Newt is a brilliant man.
That’s the plan!
But is he too damaged for a VP slot?
