Feel like I’m watching Fox News Sunday with Chrissy and his republican GOTCHA! GOCHA! GOTCHA! questions! wtf
Sweet. That’s the lobbyist section.
“I think Paul and Johnson are on drugs right now.” LOL
These questions about drugs are irrelevant as well. The 2012 campaing isn’t going to be fought over leaglization of drugs.
I surely didn’t but maybe someone will have the answer in a few.
Johnson wants to legalize and tax pot. Has admitted to using it. Asked how far he'd go on legalization. He whines the problem with the drug war is prohibition, not use! Advocates looking at other drugs as a "health care" issue, not law enforcement.
I don’t think Paul needs drugs. He’s loopy w/o them.
Agree! Pawlenty admitted he screwed up with Cap&Trade. I give him credit for admitting he screwed the pooch on that.
Santorum is a pretty good speaker, better than I recall him being.
Personally, I’m thrilled Milt isn’t at the debate!!!
Out of this group, I like Cain.
and the communists and george soros
I do have major respect for that Officer and Gentleman.
“One right decision does not a great president make”
I’m going to have to remember that one lmao!
I was checking out NRO to see if they were blogging from the debate. I usually visit NRO’s blogs each day but man I don’t like all the piming they’re doing for Mitch Daniels. I understood why they endorsed Romney - they felt he was the most conservative of those running who had the financial resources to compete with Obama. But now when the field isn’t even set yet why are they pimping someone who hasn’t even indicated he’s running?
Great quote along with, “how’s that working out for ya?”
Out of this group tonight he wins hands down.
yEAH, YOU MAKE A GOOD POINT...
Forget Paul....he scaires the h...l out of me.
Cain, west great.
Like Santorum too...
Paul: Economy. Obama has no clue about the business cycle.
Cain: Economy. Broken promises.
Santorum: Ignores the question. Says he can beat incumbent Dems.
Johnson: Economy. Says he has no idea why voters would trust Republicans after the Bush years but says only Republicans can fix things.
And he smokes dope too. Wow.
Well, in comparison to the incumbent -- who obviously doen't have one -- it's a clearly superior position.
