Watch the South Carolina Republican Debate Online [VIDEO]
Bostoninno via fox ^ | 1/16/2012 | n/a

Posted on 01/17/2012 1:43:10 AM PST by Rick_Michael

The GOP Debate on FOX News will pit favorite Mitt Romney, Ron Paul, Rick Perry, Rick Santorum, and Newt Gingrich against each other for the first time since New Hampshire. As you know Jon Huntsman bowed out of the race earlier today. Bret Baier will moderate the debate.


TOPICS: Breaking News; US: South Dakota
KEYWORDS: 2012; braking; gingrich; mitt; newt
For those that failed to see the debate (please don't pull this from Breaking).

It was a really good one...Newt knocked it out of the park and hopefully Mitt 'Ford Dole McCain' Romney is going down!

I'm about 1.5 hrs into it now. Ron Paul's supporters complain he's always placed near the end and doesn't get enough questions or time reflective of his finishes in the primaries.

His performance in this debate tells you why. He's an embarrassment. I cannot take anyone supporting Mr. Magoo seriously.

yes, I don’t understand why anyone would support Ron Paul as a whole candidate. Yes, he has done a lot for republicans in a sense that he does support true debt reduction...but that’s it...his views beyond that are dangerous, silly and really hard for any real conservative to hear.

I wish him the best as a congressman, but nothing more.

Weren't replies reduced to 90 seconds, supposedly giving others an advantage over Newt?

Anyone who believes Mitt is the only one who can debate Obama should coach him on the pronunciation of "legislation."

Phonetically, it's lej-i-sla-shen. For some reason, Mitt says lettuce-lation.

Was it just me or did Romney and Paul get a lot more questions directed to them than did the other three?

* Before Monday's debate, Mitt was losing ground, and his debate performance was weak / below average
* Before Monday's debate, Newt was GAINING ground, and his debate performance was fantastic
* Rick Perry gained into upper single-digits but his debate performance was mediocre
* Rick Santorum was losing ground rapidly, AND his debate performance was mediocre
* Jon Huntsman's support was ONLY 1% in the latest poll, and that support won't ALL go to Romney so don't sweat him

SC voters: If you liked Rick or Rick, THINK ABOUT THIS before voting....

Each congressional district will have 2 delegates given to the winner-take-all within the district (that's 14 delegates total)

And Statewide, there will be 11 delegates given to the winner-take-all at the state level

So let's assume Romney is still barely in 1st place in the polls just before the vote.
Let's assume there is only ONE close NON-Romney in 2nd place (Newt).

Maybe YOU would prefer Rick or Rick....

So, IF YOU Vote for Rick or Rick, you have most likely voted FOR ROMNEY because it is WINNER TAKE ALL!!!!

The ONLY way to NOT give your delegates to ROMNEY is to consolidate all conservative votes behind the LEADING NON-ROMNEY

Best in debate against Obama? Posted on December 13, 2011

Best in debate against Obama?

A majority of Americans think Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich would fare best in a head-to-head television debate against President Barack Obama. In a Poll Position national scientific telephone survey, 54% said Gingrich would give Obama the best debate, 20% thought Mitt Romney would do the best. All other GOP candidates received single digit votes when asked how they would fare against Obama in a TV debate.

When Palin visited the Palmetto State in 2010 to endorse Nikki Haley for governor, she shot up from fourth to first place, eventually winning...

Sarah, your country NEEDS you. We can honor your decision, if YOU choose to not run for this office, but a Mitt Romney nomination will be a DISASTER!!!

You can turn this primary process into a victory for Conservatives!

PLEASE schedule a visit to SC and strongly endorse and campaign for Newt Gingrich.

Newt can defeat Obama, AND he will REVERSE the Obama nightmare.

Romney has a HISTORY of supporting abortion, gay-marriage, higher taxes, and ObamneyCare.

Romney will be easily defeated by Obama, and he would NOT reverse Obama's policies.

PLEASE Sarah, help us win back this country!!!

Ol' Uncle Retard got roundly booed on his foreign policy positions

PS Just to show how the CORRUPT, biased, Lame Stream Media--in bed with the Far Left--is working to insure no Conservative gets the nod, CNN has a poll (see Drudge) in which they "purport" to show Mittens and....wait for it....Paul are "tied with Dear Leader.

Bull sheet! No way this can be; there can NOT be that many ignorant and uninformed people in this country?

On second though, they did elect O'Bummer on 08.

Depressing.

Thanks, that got me in the ballpark. If you start at 9:51PM in their player with Ron Paul finishing up, you get Juan basically calling Newt a racist with his question, and Newt’s excellent response.

Good stuff, I’ve seen this story before from Gingrich. Perfect time to use it.

Now that is truth! I just hope people have the sense to read it and the brains to comprehend. Sadly I will be surprised if they do. I honestly believe Conservatives are so dogmatic that they will fight amongst themselves and, in the process, hand the nomination by default to Romney - and eventually to Obama. Your post makes too much sense unfortunately. I've even seen some FReepers say they would rather vote for Ron Paul of all people (looking at his stance on immigration and debt but totally ignoring his views on foreign policy and by connection national defense that are tacitly suicidal for the country).

The enemy for Conservatives can be (very easily) seen at an individual level ...all that a Conservative who can vote needs to do is get a mirror (or any clean reflective surface) and take a hard look! Conservatives can easily win the GOP nomination if they stood behind one Conservative candidate. They can also win against Obama when the General Election comes along. However, I think the thought of victory is anathema amongst Conservatives. I think that at some subconscious subliminal level Conservatives like being under Liberals. Like a beaten spouse! After all, throwing away clear victory over dogmatic arguments ('oh, so and so sat on a couch with this and that') clearly shows that. I think a president who would be FOR the USA (even though he sat on a couch with some lady years ago) is better than Obama!

Anyways, let everyone continue arguing and splitting the vote and hand it to Romney (i.e. hand it to Obama). I am certain Obama would never sit on a couch with Pelosi.

Will Newt be able to steal the GOP back from the Liberals and the kooks? If not Newt, who?

I wonder how long the GOP has been a soft Liberal party. I believe Reagan stole the party back from the Liberals ("moderates") in 1980. Eisenhower allowed taxes and government to grow crazily in the 50's. How far back do you have to go? I think sometime in the late 1800's/early 1900's, America found itself without a political party that would put America and its Christian, traditional values first. I think ever since then the GOP has put its own interests and political perpetuation ahead of what's best for America.

The country has withstood an amazingly long period of time without sustained organizational and institutional support. May God Himself continue to bless and uphold America against her enemies, within and without, until He returns for His own.

I don't believe Obama is going to debate.

Despite his faith in the effectiveness of his mendacity Obama knows he has a lousy record and having a televised event he cannot totally control and thus risking that record getting out to the dumb masses can only hurt him.
A smart Obama would rely on his billion and the MSM alone to control the message.

Nixon lost when he debated and won twice when he didn't—crooks learn from each other.

I agree Newt is a great debater.

Everything else about his campaign is ridiculously bad. Organization, message discipline, media, mail, etc..

I think he could win in 1912, but not 2012.

I am a supporter - but there is no there, there - beyond the televised debates.

Did anyone else think that Ron Paul looks like he's had a mild stroke recently with his mouth drooping like it did? Don't think I've really noticed that before with him.

I thought the part on Social Security was very instructive. Newt explained his plan which is similar to the one successfully used in Chile, then Santorum said we can’t afford it and later Romney agreed. I think Santorum and Romney like the Bob Dole plan for saving Social Security.

He did it several times. The one the crowd really responded to was about halfway through, I think, right before one of the commentator breaks. About the proper response to America’s enemies, as opposed to Ron Paul comparing Osama to a Chinese dissident.

Thanks for posting the link. This was the most important debate so far because it was up-to-the-minute, dealing with the problem of the PACs and other recent developments.

Plus: If you thought the Iowa audience was enthusiastic, you gotta see this one!

Perry was outstanding on every subject—a solid conservative and states’-rights candidate, whereas Mitt did a lot of broken-field running when he wasn’t coattailing on the Newt responses that got the most applause.

I guess the big one was this one: about work, money, and ownership being things to aspire to. In response to a race-baiting "question" from Juan Williams.

This is the one that got the standing ovation; now has its own FR thread and YouTube clip.

His motor functions don't seem to be impaired the way he frantically waved his arm about, while raving. He seemed to tone it down later, but the damage was done. It's pretty bad when Perry can make fun of you in a debate, as he did with Paul and the "gong" comment.

I don't use Twitter or Facebook. Given the support Paul has among that crowd, I am happy to be excluded.

Sarah is a paid FOX news political analysis as such she cannot endorse a candidate. The position gives her an audience she would not get through twitter/facebook.

She, through Todd has given as close to an endorsement as she can....Newt.

Todd is behind the camera when Sarah speaks through FOX. Who do you think was behind the camera when Todd endorsed Newt? Piper?

Interesting observation about Obama perhaps deciding not to debate at all. I think it's a very plausible scenario, especially if a bulldog like Newt gets the nomination.

Many of us just assume that there will be debates in the fall but that is not a given. Especially if the polling shows Obama comfortably ahead. If that is the case, why would the Obama camp risk having Obama in front of a national audience without a teleprompter?

And if this scenario does occur, you just know that the sycophant media would find some reasons to give Obama a free pass on this. So there will be minimal political fallout to Obama deciding not to debate at all.

If Newt is the guy you like best, then yes, vote for the guy you like best.

If you like someone else, and you vote for someone else, then you're voting for Romney.

If you can't see that.... no wonder our Country is in the toilet. It is spelled out for you in blue and red, but if you can't see it, then we're all going to be stuck with 4 more years of Obama.

Why is it sooooooooooooo ^flying^ difficult to find an un-edited, un-redacted, not-pro-mitt/newt/RuPaul video of the Myrtle Beach debate online?????

All I want to do is view it and make my own conclusions but....NOOOOOOOOOOOO...somebody has to make me give them link-thru points to see portions of the debate.

Hell, even FNC has it hidden deep in the ether-bowels such that I don’t want to traverse the slimy journo-layers to get PORTIONS of the debate.

Please...someone give me a clean link to the 120 minutes of the debate so I can make my own conclusions!

Please.

It is just so frustrating for those of us who are busy and find time AFTER the debate to watch it...even just 24 hours later!

I came to FR and found a link -—— through some blog site (bostinnon) for divided pieces of the debate.

I went to FNC where, apparently, their articles and interpretations of the debate are eminently more important that putting the debate front-and-center on their website. (Not to mention the Hannity BS related to his take/interpretation/romney-fellating).

Even you-tube has “Part 1” thru “Part 8i” or some such.

Crip...can you provide a clean 2-hour link?

I am going to read this whole thread and watch the video of the debate (thanks for the link), but I have a couple of questions I hope someone can answer. By the way, these questions are a result of a discussion on facebook with a friend of mine who unfortunately is a staunch liberal.

Q1 - Who are the people who were allowed to attend this debate? My friend says they booed gay soldiers and cheered the mention of uninsured people dying.

Q2 - Did Gingrich at any time say anything racial? I know some statements were interpreted by liberals as racial, but were they?

I appreciate any help anyone can give me. I’m sure sorry I missed this debate originally.

Thanks.
