Newt Gingrich, "I'm not so concerned about Mitt and Perry scaring the American people (w/ regards to SS), when Obama scares them everyday. *Applause* This is eating into my time..." (Paraphrased)
I heard Perry say current seniors would be paid guaranteed
If Perry/Cain is the final ticket, then I could live with that.
>> “If anyone deserves to be attacked it’s Perry... No more ManBearPiggers from Texas” <<
Nor “clip-on” Christians from Texas.
Amen Brother. I love Santorum’s fight. I hope he can break through at some point.
Newt is brilliant.And can get his points across!
I missed it...was on the phone (trying to get off) and heard the loud applause :-(
Huntsman strikes me as yet anotehr closet queen that married only so he had good pictures for his campaign. You know....kinda ike Obammy and his beard
They make me want to sing “Jailhouse Rock”.
“august powers” sahweet
Sounds like they have all learned to handle the moderators.
Whoever gets the nomination needs to tap Newt for the VP slot. Hands down.
“Stop paying the crooks” is only a start ...
That's been the deal all along.
I think Newt knows he stands no chance of winning, but for some reason, I think he’s staying in the game to keep the focus on Obama. He smacks the lib moderators when they get mouthy and re-directs the topic back on the failure that is Zero.
