I’m not sure by listening to him that Newt is running to win...he’s running to set the parameters of the debate and be a media foil. He’s doing a damn good job too.
“No, make him Press Secretary.”
Now, that would be fun.
Wow... some good sparring! Rick Perry is doing very well. His expressions are priceless. hahaha
Romney is pissing me off...
“No, make him Press Secretary.”
God, I’d DVR every single conference. ;-)
I kind of like them all tonight.
Newt as press secretary... we all would need to stock up on popcorn!! That would be a show worth watching.
I think the problem with Santorum and Bachman is that they sound childish constantly talking about what they did and tried to do. It sounds like they are trying to justify why they are there. I like Santorum, I just don’t think he has a chance. They don’t seem Presidential. I’m voting for who I think can beat Obama.
Paul says “we shouldn’t have never started it.”
If Sarah doesn’t want others to take the words right out of her mouth, then she better move her cute little tushie and get up there in the debates with them!
I hope obama knows that him threatening to withhold SS and military checks is going to be used against him in the general election.
Hi there !
this is awesome....Romney sounds so blah....lots of cliches.
who do you like?
Michelle Bachmann speaks! Finally!
Ron Paul re Soc. Sec.:
I voted against it.
Santorum doesn’t look so dyspeptic tonight, that’s an improvement. Better lines too.
Oh look! Bachmann’s on the stage!!
RuPaul on eliminating our spending on the War on Terror. Throws in eliminating Dept of Education as well.
Perry much better performance tonight.
He says that about everything!!!
