I like Santorum. He is a good, honest man. He would be a good President.
Cain’s a nice guy, but he has absolutely no chance of getting the nomination.
Romney just said
Barry dies understand the economy because he has never lived in this economy
Romney himself has never lived in the economy
He had a rich daddy...
hes got more than 250 MIILLION
I really, really like the man.
Stay tuned for the after debate comments.
Huntsman has a strong fiscal conservative record in Utah but he needs to spell it out in more detail. Voters aren’t going to take the time to read. Good thing is not another one until September 7 and then every two weeks thereafter. lol
Tonight was a schizophrenic circus.
8 candidates is (at least) 3 too many. Impossible to discern 1 minute fastballs.
Fox & Washington Examiner people were pathetically awful.
P.S. Ron Paul wins the Straw Poll Saturday.
You’re right! Huntsman ought to be challenging obama!
Unfortunately the FED came in and stole that wealth of opportunity through the powers of Congress granted by the States. Here we are.
If Palin doesn’t win, say hello to Romney.
Amen to that!
I only hope they see those skills he has.
He has many videos on his YouTube channel. They should be studying his debating skills.
Newt’s answer - probably the best final statement.
1 Cain 2 Santorum 3 Bachman 4 Gingrich 5 Paul 6 Huntsman 7 Romney 8 Pawlenty
I must admit Newt speaks as if he is comfortable and confident—he didn’t rattle or seem like he was on the hot seat
Rick and Cain summed it all up........Paul going religious? bad wars.......blah, blah.....Gold...peace......Romney - economic crisis...goes for Obambi’s throat......had to have had a job to create a job? woah! Economy, economy... Bachman send a message to DC on what we think of Obama.....send a message to Washington that they can’t miss. Pawlenty....freedom is a blessing....leadership...I am the leader for America...God Bless America. Huntsman.....LOVE this country, we are hurting, scared and bankrupt...debt...barrack won on hope, I will win on solutions. Newt...crisis NOW, call now and repeal, repeal, repeal.......save American families.
Bret........there is no salvaging this mess. You messed up worse than any candidate........pathetic showing for FOX.
Huntsmans mannerisms remind me of one of Dan Akroyds characters from SNL. Is this guy for real? LOL!
Next Fox-promoted debate: SEPTEMBER 22nd in Orlando
He's sharp, he knows how to lead, he's honest, he elevates the debate, and I hope he makes a good running in the Republican primary.
