The RonTardians are out in force with their auto-voting macros. Usually good to just ignore them and look at the next ones down the list.

ALL candidates need Ron Paul’s poll-overwhelming infrastructure.

Sarah Palin won.

She's not afraid of gaffes!

She tells it like it is.

America is ready for a straight shooter!

I am constantly amazed at the whining that occurs by many Freepers regarding RPs “troops” ability to hit the polls...

...as if there is something wrong with that.

While all along ignoring the real question:

If Perry, Romney, Palin and Bachmann are such great inspiring Republican candidates - why aren’t their “troops” capable of doing the same?

=8-)

Bottom line is: Open polls are open polls...show up and vote for your candidate - don’t whine if you don’t and the others do and push their candidate of choice ahead.

=8-)

I don’t care about these useless polls.

Ron Paul has some decent arguments, but that doesn’t discount that he is nuts.

All the candidates have their good points and their bad.

My opinion, which doesn’t mean much, is Newt, Cain, Bachman, Santorum, then go on from there.

I agree with a caller I heard on talk radio this evening, “I’d vote for Alfred E. Newman before I’d vote for Obama”!

They are capable, they just aren't punk college kids with too much time on their hands and 'loose' morals that think the ends justify the means. Most regular folks go to a poll, vote and see the results. It usually doesn't occur to them to figure out a way to crack the system to be able to auto-vote hundreds of times.

Typical FOX Poll. Trying to sway the debate. Obviously they are in the tank for Johnson. Where is Fred Karger on the list? Fred Who you say? That's right.

Gingrich or Cain did the best in the debate. Like you say, just ignore Paul in any unscientific poll. His results are worthless background noise.

Rick Perry lost badly, and as a result, Mitt Romney won. If Newt Gingrich or Rick Santorum had executive experience and were anywhere close to Mr. Romney in the polls, one could argue that one of them won. They both gave great answers. However, this debate didn’t move them towards the presidency as much as the debate moved Mitt Romney towards the presidency. Newt Gingrich is still in these debates because we love to hear him speak. Rick Santorum is in these debates to get the VP nod or prepare to win back his senate seat.

I now find myself back in the desert. I really want a real conservative at the top this time. Not Mitt McCain.

“The Herman Cain-Newt Gingrich hybrid was not a choice.”

From my view point, Cain won the debate. His answers were spot on without hesitation. He has solid plans and doesn’t dance around questions. He’s not a career politician, he’s a business man who knows how to look for real solutions. Him with Gingrich (not a fan, but he’s Washington savvy) would be a great ticket. Perry and Romney as far as I’m concerned are Democrats. Calling them Rhinos would be too kind. I’m tired of being told to vote for another demo plant so the self proclaimed demo won’t win. There is no way either Perry or Romney will get my vote. Both of them should be on used car lots. As far as “get behind the party,” I’m not a lemming and if the RNC whats to get behind a democrat, I’m not following them off that cliff. I have a conscience and intend to vote it. If others feel they have to sell out and vote for Rhino, then they get what they deserve. I have to stand before God at the end of the day.

you say: “, I’m going to go with Herman Cain.”

I liked Cain until he folded, after ‘offending’ the mussies, and apologized.

We need someone with the backbone to tell the truth and then STAND by it! No more apologies to those who insult us all the time and want nothing but to kill us. And they are testing people who they think might end up in high office to see if they can make them back down to them. WE need someone who doesn't speak PC.

I liked Gingrich for this debate - and although Santorum hasn't a chance, and I don't think he's strong enough for the office, he's the ONLY ONE that even MENTIONS our troops - and the murderous, traitorous ROE that this bast*rd POS in the WH put in - resulting in over 63% of our troops killed in 10 years - are during and because of this CICINO.

I have not heard ONE WORD from any of the other candidates about our troops.

There ARE two people who would pull these killing, Taliban favoring ROE first thing and who know who our enemy is and will not back down from them, kow tow to them or apologize to them.

Hopefully, one will soon declare and when she gets the nomination, pick the other for her running mate.

The two strongest were Cain and Gingrich. My favorites are Cain, Gringrich, Bachmann, and Sanatorum and consequently I thought they all did well, but Cain and Gingrich stood out.

Perry doesn’t do well, don’t care for Romney. Really don’t care for Paul or Huntsman (though Paul does well when he’s talking about anything other than foreign policy). Huntsman annoys me just looking at him; can’t bear him.

Liked Johnson, he did well.

Ron Paul??? L O L

He wasn't even asked to answer about foreign affairs and I think he was forgotten the first hour..

He doesn't have a chance in He!! of being elected, what a waste of time and money on him...at his age he is lucky to get out of bed in the mornings...time to retire Paul and save yourself an embarrassment.

I'd like to see him locked in a small room with Kucinich for a week and see which one comes out wearing a Hitler mustache, maybe both of them.

My prediction is the first candidate to grow a Hitler stache, even Newt, will be the nominee.

Cain did not fold but he did backtrack because he realized how determinated the Establishment is to punish anyone who dares raise the question of the role that Islam plays in the War on Terror. The “realists” are encased in a secularist time-warp where the unrest in the Third World can be attributed to anti-colonialism, a hostility to which they somewhat share

There are 'Democrats' and there are 'Leftists'. The Left owns the Democrat Party. Not voting Republican, only insures the further - if not irretrievable - erosion/destruction of our Country per Leftist harvest. Voting in Conservatives, at every level, easier task with a Repub President and/or majority.

If OBama wins; then Labor wins; Marxist-mafia, Communists win. Degradation and ignorance wins - the WORST elements of our society-culture win. . ..and truth and democracy; our 'land of the free' WILL be further damned. And of course, there is our Military. . .

As disappointing and painful; are many of our Repub candidates: they leave the Left, pale in value, by comparison.

Could almost hear the Union-mafia/Obama 'forces' plotting their 'worst' and most threatening, campaign strategies against Republicans, as they debated and cheered tonight.

We are in a war! And we cannot save our Country with our Party divided, on Election Day.

I’m not completely sure of my memories of 2007, but I was thinking a few days ago that Newt Gingrich was following a John McCain path. I seem to remember John McCain dropping into the low single digits in the polls. He then started slowly rising back into contention. The debates are giving Newt Gingrich a chance to show why he’s been so popular for so long.

The establishment Republicans want either Romney or Perry. That's why the big press focuses on a pretend battle between the two. You'll hear everywhere in the MSM that Romney won.

Any real conservative will say the same: Cain and Gingrich won.

I like Cain’s honesty. It just shines through. Am so glad God saw him through his cancer travails. Something like that changes you inside, and I do believe Cain is returning that favor to God.

Am still holding out for Sarah Palin too.

O’Reilly’s show last night had a segment about a Marist poll that said 73% of republicans do not want Palin to enter the race. Curiously not one person in that segment mentioned the recent shock Drudge headline that Palin was just 5 points behind Obama in a national poll. Yeah that very same Marist poll. Guess O’Reilly decided not to be fair and balanced that day.

A Palin-Cain hybrid could produce one wicked political animal. Maybe the anti anti-Christ.

I think criticism of the “Paultards” is a bit rich coming from FreeRepublic. After all it was here that we created the idea of “Freeping” polls.

I remember many posts where Freepers reported great success in moving a poll, often by multiple votes.
