What the heck in Huckabee talking about? Is he channeling Hillary? Will he break down?

Ron Paul is the ultimate two-headed candidate.

One head = awesome conservative positions.

Other head = craaaaaaaazy!!!!

“This whole thing is awful tonight.”

Agreed. I far preferred the recent format, where they were actually able to confront each other a bit rather than make canned responses in sound bites.

Fred is the only guy on the stage who knows what he’s talking about. The rest look phony and give contrived answers.

“Frink everytime McLame says “My friend” (code for you arse wipe) .”

He drives me crazy with the “My friend, my good friend”....

Ugh, reminds me of a boss I had once who talked to clients, “Let me be honest with you....”...YOU knew he was lying.

I wish someone would ask McCAin how many applications he got when he said he’d pay $50 an hour to any American who would pick lettuce. Hunter would have. :<)

No, I think he was saying that we are in a recession right now that has been staved off by interest rate cuts so that when it finally hits, it will hit harder and last longer than if we hadn’t perpetuated it with too much fed meddling.

When I heard McCain say the tax cuts should be permanent, the first thought I had was, “Well then why the heck did you not support them in the first place?”

He is such a liar.

Exactly. McCain’s talking about earmarks, which we all hate, but earmarks aren’t what’s going to bankrupt this country. That would be our runaway entitlements system, which only Fred has addressed in any serious manner so far in this campaign.
