I meant Newt
Where is Newt? And why isn’t he there with the rest of them?
My friend you need to do more research
I just read in Wikipedia that Paul was a Flight Surgeon in the Air Force and the US Air National Guard
It did show each of them up better, certainly in time to reply. I kinda like the give and take of the regular debates, you never know what’s going to happen!
Newt did a good wrap up. Don’t like Perry’s making the congress part-time. Michelle didn’t need to tell us she was a tax attorney. Paul was more of the same. Santorum wasn’t prepared at all and Mitt kissed ass.
Well, Romney is slick that way. But I totally don’t trust a word he says!
Perry is awkward but completely honest, I believe.
We want to win in November. Perry could embarrass the Republican party and we would lose.
Beg to differ, it was not a debate and I believe that Rick Perry would all make us proud of our country once again.
I wuz wrong
Smaller moving target
He shot it -
Newt would try to talk it to death
Which ones? How recent? Single digits?
MY main issue is..........considering the politicians (and YES I mean YOU Newt and Willard) IS....”Were you lying to me THEN? Or are you lying to me NOW?” SInce they have both flipped and flopped more than a freakin carp in an earthquake!
I am leaning Perry.......cautiously.....but leaning none the less.
It was a kick in the gut. And it was at the same time as the decision to pull the feeding tube on Schiavo.
I was sick. Evil, evil month of SCOTUS decisions.
The “completely westernized imam” is Prince Karim, Aga Khan IV. Harvard ‘57. Before that, an alumnus of a Swiss boarding school. Mother was British. Father, half Italian. AK4’s primary residence, most of his career: Paris, just a stone’s throw from Notre Dame.
50+ year career as a philanthropist, very devoted to advancing education and development in areas grievously in need of those. If every imam were anything like him we’d have no trouble with islam, you may be certain. Unfortunately he is one of a kind.
I think everything you say it exactly right, and let me add an additional consideration:
Newt is not a whippersnapper, worried about his future career or the approval of others. He’s a grandfather, fighting for keeps, for his grandkids. This is his last stand, and I think Newt more than all the other candidates will automatically take the long view, and do what is difficult and right, not what is politically expedient.
Newt hits it out of the park with his summation.He's the only one who's zeroing in on what zerO really is: an Alinsky revolutionary fundamentally changing our country into a Leninist dystopia.
None of the others really get that. They get parts of it, like blind men feeling the elephant (and of course, Ron Paul is actually fingering an elephant turd), but only Newt sees the whole picture, sees it with crystal clarity, and expresses what he sees in a few concise words.
Completely false. You are re-hashing old hit pieces from all the people who have ever run, and lost, against Perry.
On Texas illegals you stated....”better to let them get a skill and marketable profession than go on welfare.”
No, better they become legal and then carry on. I am not for one state over another having their own laws concerning illegals...they simply cross borders then and become an issue where they land thereafter.
Yep. Gingrich gets it.
He blew me away with his last question about his favorite Founding Father and now with his closing statement.
Gingrich understands precisely what this election is all about.
The Marxist and his people do too.
He better do it before the press DESTROYS him. If he becomes our nominee, he will never be able to battle what’s coming his way and ours!!!
caww, I believe he is our hope and America’s hope. His final statement said it all..”don’t vote for me and go home..stay with me” he is a uniter and a fighter. I am going to fight for him all the way.
We do not need to elect someone at this crucial time and provide them with “on the job training” we need a man that knows how to move and shake up the damage Obama has done and that man is NEWT.
Pam Bondi is hot. Wow, attorney general of Florida.
Pam Bondi was the clear winner tonight! In my eyes anyway....
This thread says differently.
I like the way you are thinking. I have gone from Palin to Perry to Newt and now I think I am back to Perry.
This is not true. He was in the military and had a very comprehensive report done regarding this. You can search for the link yourself. Stop spreading propaganda.
Newt is also clearly looking at the general election and staking out positions against Obama, which is probably good strategy.
Kudos to Huckabee for a decent debate format.
And then when President Newt, turns out to be much more like Nixon/Bush then Reagan, you all will be racing around here whining hysterically about him
Apparent you McCainbots learned nothing from your epic fail in 2008.
You Newt Cultists better lay off the kool aid. You have so rotted your brains with it you are now gushing like mindless teenagers with a crush.
Gee, there seems to be a big overlap of Paul supports and antisemitism...
What’s the big deal here. I have a couple of credit cards but usually pay cash. Paid cash for my new Lincoln too.
I don’t worry about credit.......
No. Perry would win because he is the antithesis of Obama and his minions. He is the only one who is and that’s what constitutionalist Americans yearn for.
Islam isn't a "race" either... yet they consistantly use the race card to tie up our courts and gain special privileges, and the politicians let them as well as the attorneys who also haven't a clue what they are fighting when they do stand against them.
As a war vet myself I honor Paul’s service.
“Flight Surgeon” = physician assigned to a unit that has aircraft
It does not normally mean a guy who performs surgery while flying or even for a flying unit. In fact it rarely means that.
I think after this my line up is Bachmann, Perry and Santorum.
Newt is sneaky, Romney is too slick and then there’s Paul.....
You probably didn’t notice, but Pam Bondi was looking at me the whole program.
It was a treat to see three outstanding public servants asking intelligent questions.
Now, who would have dared think that might be better than a guy who no doubt reads the “Journa-list” posts before his first cup of coffee every morning?
Even though she’s not my pick, and I truly believe she’s too inexperienced and raw, I like the story about the foster kids: she got involved in politics because the State of Wisconsin would not allow home schooling of foster children. That’s a real mission, not a power play or ego thing.
You wouldn’t have even needed to watch the program based on your statement. Your mind was made up long ago.
Newt talked about Saul Alinsky in the closing.
Not sure if he can do that in the general. The MSM will brand him racist.
I agree — good closing by Newt.
Santorum gave detailed answers. I think he has thought through some
issues at the Presidential level. He has both House and Senate experience
and it showed.
Perry did well but he confused me on his Obamacare answer. Executive
order and Sec. HHS rulemaking.
Would he also lead an effort to repeal it?
Mitt Romney was the loser tonight I think.
Well aren’t we all special and self righteous and divisive and shit.
I agree. Cain probably did not do anything wrong. But they whould have made him tell them everything that could have even been misconstrued as “off”. They should have been the ones to check his phone records and ask him about the calls, etc.
Oh, well, I guess it is water over the dam now.
Very impressed with all, Perry did great, Romney was good, Newt was Newt and the crazy uncle Paul is still crazy(in a good way). All are way better then Zero.
ITs a big world.
Over half the world, billions of people, would come to the US given the chance.
IF we want to be fair about it, not let just Central America and those who can get to the border in, we should let about 125,000 per year in based on what they can do for the country, not their need.
If we start letting people in the country based on need our population will be 2 billion. We can't afford the people we have now.
You have NO idea about my mind, so just give it a rest.
Don’t know how they fit a Flight Surgeon in those bi-planes but guess anything’s possible. :-)
Really, I admire his service as I do anyone who served. A few years in the service of our country makes any person a better citizen.
Absolutely and he's trying very hard to get the people to see it as well...which is another attraction to him...he sooo cares about our nation and knows exactly what has to be done....and every plan he has addresses more than what people read them as...those plans touch every place we need to clean up in our country to get it cooking once again.....
Noticed that. Probably he's the only one who knows what Alinsky radicalism is!
She’s probably mean as a striped spider and besides being AG, you couldn’t even get 5 minutes of court time.
