Agree or disagree, you gotta like Ron Paul’s passion.

Did Hunter get a question?

I'm liking Huckabee more than I have previously.

I like Huckabee as a person but isn't he a big government/increase tax kind of guy?

I thought Paul would be impressive and talk about Constitutional issues.

Instead he gave a pre-prepared speech.

Free Republic exists to advance conservatism and attack liberalism. That includes liberal candidates.

News Flash: Rudy Giuliani is a liberal.

What you posted was pure nonsense.

Ron Paul. Yeah right. That’s why they had to bribe millions to pull out of Iraq and didn’t have enough to override the veto.

BTW, Leiberman won on the war... he’s a lib.

Although many say the GOP has a short bench, after seeing these 10 on stage it’s hard to agree

Bump to that!

Now a candidate (Paul) cites a poll.

And I use the term "candidate" loosely.

Ron Paul has too much baggage... under his eyes.

Comes off as a bit of a kook,,, no chance for Paul..

Every question so far has cited some dumbass poll or another.

"54% of 39% of the 16% who actually answer polls say that...."

I think Mathews is just trying to fish up quotes that Democrats can use against whichever Republican gets the nomination.

Long time reader — just finally set up an account tonight.

How on earth do you guys keep up with these live threads? I’m stuck on a modem and just can’t keep up, lol.

BTW, I liked Romney’s comment about polls.

He is the Dennis Kucinich of the GOP but he is well liked by the Libertarian-leaning Pubbies.

Some of his ideas are very good.

Huckabee is a good debater, and a smooth talking ExPreacher.

Listen to what he says, not how he says it..

I thought Brownback was rambly...

I agree. Purely on form, he's coming off the worst of all of them to me. Not too great on substance, either. I already see him as one of the bigger losers in this debate.

Of course, Brownback's loss could be Hunter's gain.
