The other candidates will make that determination for me. He is giving it to the press and Obama. He has trampled wallace’s attempt to side-track anything.
A bit presumptuous wouldnt you say. You "think" he has the support. Unless of course you just rely on what the MSM tells you, in which case you then take it as "gospel".
Oh joy, another globalist, Bilderberger, CFR, GOP elite, WashPo fave Texas governor. Sure gets me motivated. Scrap the TEA party, I'm goin mainstream. Where's the donation form?
Wallace has nothign but gotcha questions.
Pray for America
You’re most certainly right about that! It’s too bad that he’s such a loser and traitor to our side!
Yeah, he is wrong. The states do have the right to be “wrong” morally. Whether you like it or not, the right exists.
Santorum just channeled his inner-Lincoln & blow-torched the 10th Amendment.
Can a state redef marriage, murder or life?
Paul still worries me a bit. Santorum is also great. He is coming into his own. Again, he would have a hard time getting ahead of Romney in many places and with many voters who don’t really listen to him, and have pre-conceived ideas because of past comments he made a few years ago. He is, however, 100% conservative with no belief in government paid abortions or many of the existing abortion “rights” It would take a miracle for him to get the womens’ votes he needs. Unfortunate.
Ron Paul says the feds can't prevent a state from doing bad things. Attacking "corporatism" doing well under both Obama & Republicans and says doctors and patients suffer and pushing market-based health savings accounts.
Santorum attacks both Bachmann and Ron Paul as "10th amendment run amuck." He says Ron Paul would support bigamy laws, Bachmann won't defend marriage.
No Perry, No Palin.
Fox should have cancelled in the last minute.
Iowa doesn’t mean anything this time.
The congressman on the foxnews commercial feed is critizing the questioning.......Newt is standing out...I don’t like him...but he’s doing the best tonight!
Romney just stinks. The stupid media is trying to push this guy on the GOP because they know he’s the only feasible candidate for the nomination that Obama can beat.
Santorum just pulled out a gun and shot himself.
He makes a good point but hardly anyone understood what he said.
Wallace is losing!
Great. Santorum hitting it out of the park on the 10th Amendment. Too bad this guy is so unknown. He really slapped Pual and Bachmann across the face on that.
Bachmann looked like she was storming over to whine to Rick as they went to break.
I hope that Mike Gallagher poses some tough questions to Chris Wallace tomorrow on his radio segment with him. Wallace needs to be held accountable for his disgusting behavior tonight. His smirking haughtiness has always been annoying but Wallace's performance during the debate has crossed a boundary.
Bachmann is the winner so far. Passion, energy, and actually answering the questions. She just cut off Romney at the knees with her answer on Romney’s health care mandate in Mass. No government, federal or state, should force a citizen to purchase a good or service. It is wrong at any level. It is tyranny.
“Then he got snarky after Newt dressed him down.”
Then the audience gave CW a second smackdown by booing him and cheering Newt :-)
Obama would do badly debating with Newt.
As far as debates go. A debate between Newt and Obama would be the closest to a Chaney vs Obama debate.
Newt is very articulate and has a lot of knowledge about government. Obama would appear to be stupid.
I don’t know, but maybe in MA they can force people to pay jizya.
I agree with you re Newt. By the same token I think Pawlenty is making an obvious desperate effort. He’s not highlighting his record, he’s attacking others (chiefly Bachmann who it’s clear he fears). Desperation!
Santorum wasted another opportunity to make himself relevant, just now. His point on the 10th Amendment was,well, weird.
Losers so far:
Master Debater, but can’t be trusted: Gingrich
Biggest BS Artist: Romney
Able to take the blows and keep standing: Bachmann
Most Articulate: Cain
Most applause: Paul
Person exit82 wishes was there: Palin
oY, that was bad... Michelle.
the MSM is picking romney like they picked McCain and Dole......it’s HIS turn.......gag me.
Somebody needs to call out Romney - once again he is the kid eating ice cream while other kids are fighting over who blows out the candles.
Palenty is a bastard... Attacking everyone...
Rick Perry for President!
Why did Michelle leave? Did not seem smart.
And don’t forget also a guy that in the right light looks and sounds eerily like George Bush. Can ya just see the ads nows?
A lot of people understood his point on the 10th amendment, IMO.
Ron Paul reminds me of a conservative version of Nader
Is asking the other candidates about Perry who is not there Kosher ???
Michelle is still there...don’t know what you mean.
Understand that these early debates weed out the ones that have no chance.
SARAH PALIN QUESTION!!!!
Im a woman and don’t make sexist remarks. Bachman came across bitchy. Sorry.
Bachman doen’t hold a candle to Sarah.
Bachmann looked terrible with her tete a tete with Paws. She needs to learn to hit back more concisely if she is going after Obummer.
I’m holding out for Palin.
Problem with Newt is he always lets his conservative side hang out during a campaign. However, his RINO side emerges as soon as the campaign ends.
Too much baggage.
You ever had to take a wizz?
Commercial on. I am watching this debate and so far, I wonder if anyone is watching the same debate I am watching. I don’t have a dog on that stage, but I tell you what. Santorum has given the beat answes of any candidare up there and he just showed bachmnn and paul to be utter hypocrites. Newt has nothing to lose either. Both of them are swinging away. Good!
She was late getting back to the podium after the break was over.
these loser questioners are not asking any question I want to know the answer to. just proves how shallow the FOX talent is tonight. I miss Tony Snow and Britt Hume.
This is a game show.
If only Newt had never dipped his doodle and resigned.....
So you’re another Palin KAD who doesn’t like Bachmann. Zzzzzzz
