Yep. It was beautiful.
Now on to foreign policy and Afghanistan.
“Cain defends himself well to biased-as-heck Wallace.”
Herman’s solid and doing well - just wish he’d get more questions.
It looks like Perry is the spare MSM entry. They’ll have plenty of RINOs to prop up if Romney fails. After Guliani failed, the MSM and Fox News propped up McCain.
I’m a man and I NEVER make sexist remarks, little lady.
Both MB and SP are great.
Is their response about Perry not being there, or Palin not being there...important? Dumb, dumb question. Trying to find fault with people not there who cannot defend themselves is not what the debaters should be asked to do. I hate the dumb questions being asked
Paul says Perry is status quo, he's not.
Cain one more politician running helps him stand out even more.
Huntsman digs Perry on prayers!!
Bachmann asked Palin steals her thunder. She welcomes anyone who wants to run.
Newt says lots of candidates can come in Perry, Palin, Rudy.
I didn't see Santorum getting a shot at answering. Hmm.
Me too ... Palin is it.
“Anything worth having is worth waiting for.”
some of the candidates are being ignored—i think The Paw has gotten the most floor time
Michele get a headache?
If Bachmann looks bitchy it’s because Pawlenty set it up that way. He’s desperate and it’s shot my opinion of him all to hell.
yeah, there’s definitely a opening for Palin.
The states are limited by the U. S. Constitution. “Marriage” isn’t in there but life, liberty, and property is.
The snarky bimbo asks no interesting questions. Where are the economic questions?
I know. Have been watching these since the 1960s.Unfortunately, last time, the candidate on both sides that should have been weeded out early went on to their party's nomination.
Those of us who suffer migraines know that is not funny.
“She was late getting back to the podium after the break was over.”
To be fair, she’s the only one who can’t just whip it out over a urinal...
Newt’s slick. He’d do a Wallace on Obama in any debate.
Romney is a zit that desperately needs to be popped. More Romneycare questions are needed to corner this greased pig.
Exactly how does BO debate without a teleprompter?
what does KAD mean?
Sorry if you don't agree. It's demeaning and inappropriate, IMO.
I LOVED Newt on the super committee. He was FANTASTIC!
To paraphrase a movie, Newt came to this debate to chew gum and to kick ass and folks... he’s all out of gum.
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.
Bachmann at the commercial break, briskly walked over toward Santorum. She definitely had something to say to him.
I agree with them.
Bachman and Romney are now at bottom.
Yes, even through the abrasions and hematomae from banging my head on the keyboard.
It was instigated by Wallace. Paws has made some remarks about her competency and achievements. She responded and she did so with a laudry list of items about Paws. The fact that she is a woman who is tough and agressive seems to turn off some here who call her bitchy. I find it refreshing. Sarah Palin gets similar criticism. Just sexism.
I still wonder why Notre Dame Coach Ty Willingham was gone from the sidelines for a few minutes back in 2004. He missed part of the third quarter in the game against the Spartans at Michigan State. As far as I know, the coach never explained his absence.
Romney asked about apparently opposing views supporting Bush doctrine vs not being able to fight revolutions for others. Says its consistent. Should be on general's time table, not Obama's political time table, says Afghanistan needs to pick up the fight and defend the liberty dearly won for them (by us).
Maybe she got “cornered” in the ladies room by lesbians.
I agree. Too many up there to really get any substance. Basically, it is going to be whoever gets off the best soundbite.
He said he dipped it because his love for America was so strong.
Fox’s people are dumb.
Yes, I’m actually surprised at how “blah” Romney is.
I really appreciate your summaries. Well done.
Newt KO #3
W/0 a TelePrompTer, BO probably has receivers in his ear for debates. Also, he is never asked about his previous statements or his record. “what’s your favorite movie?” are the hard hitters for Barack.
“I really like Cain, wish he had the full support he deserves.”
Me, too. I love Herman and objectively speaking, I think either he or Newt could beat BHO, particularly in debate.
Newt is kicking ass tonight.
(Still not Presidential material, though....)
KAD = KOOL-AID DRINKER
Msm tomorrow: Bachman’s small bladder could hinder presidential hopes. What if she leaves nuclear football in public restroom. And has a migraine at the same time?
Right. Bachamann had to defend herself. Only one that looks bad is Pawlenty.
We were jusified in the invasion in Afghanistan
Still worth it but we must have a successful withdrawal
We have helped Afghan sometimme in next 2 years we must withdraw The generals...follow their recommendations
We need to rethink everything in the area
