You have FReepmail.
Romney is TOO SLICK...hell, he even makes SLick WIlly seem SLOW! (think about it)
Huntsman is put there to make Romney look good. I just figured it out!
On steroids...if I may use that worn out phrase.
Now to Greta where the elephant at the debate will be live and maybe she can give them sme MORE ideas to steal.
Huntsman needs to exit, RIGHT AWAY. Paul is a crazy man and Romney is such a politician, yuck. Perry is still a RINO. He may say the “right” things, but a look at his record tells you he does not follow what exits his lips.
I desperately want Palin to run. I am at a loss for who I will back otherwise....Bachmann is great, but this is not the time for her, nor will she win.
No, Arizona was right, and Texas was right, each in their own way. And I do disagree with the Texas way, while blaming the Feds.
Agreed.....but hey, as GWB said and Perry has insinuated, I’m just a nativist for believing our immigration laws should be enforced.
I like Herman Cain. I can’t say that enough. The guy is solid and get’s his point across.
I’m sorry to all the Perry supporters, but as of now, He does not do it for me. In no way am I writing him off yet. I think this process is a good process and hopefully the best candidate comes out. But Perry, to me, has been really underwhelming.
And no, I’m not a Palin supporter either. If she gets in she gets in. This is why this process is there. Let it run it’s course.
Like I said, my favorite so far, has been Cain.
I would seriously like to have a chat with L. Ron. His Code Pink crap is nauseating.
And I didn't know he had such a disgusting statement up on his website on the 9/11 anniversary until Santorum announced it, but I guess I shouldn't be surprised.
what did Newt say he would bring?
That DOGPILE on Perry was BRUTAL!!!!
It stops several strains of HPV, not just one.
And on an if come, we are injecting 9 year olds?
Actually it was supposed to be 12-year olds. The idea is to get the vaccine before they are sexually active. Do you have any idea how many 12-year olds are already sexually active?
I refuse to experiment with my kids.
Good for you. That is why there was an opt-out.
As a woman, I was embarrassed for Bachmann tonight. She went from Class Act to Desperate Act. Expect poll numbers to reflect my feeling.
She is still at it!
It is the same if the New England states and Kalifornicate want to let sodomites marry. It is a state’s rights issue.
Which means you and I pay for it instead.
“Cain will bring a sense of humor to the WH because America is too uptight”
You’d need a winch and a Ram Truck to pull a sewing needle out of Mitt’s ass.
” I wish Perry would have said he would add a shooting range! “
Wouldn’t THAT have been PERFECT! Me too.
Newt will bring Piano and chess board.
Don’t count on polls. Sept. 2007 had Thompson and Rudy in the lead with McCain way back.
Hey..Perry wanted 11 and 12 year olds given the shots in question, in the event that they might become sexually active and thereby get cervical cancer...that`s it in the nutshell
So he shares the same values as those that want to have these same 11 and 12 year old girls put condoms on cucumbers.
Their argument is the same as his, if they should become sexually active as young girls, they will need to know how to put condoms on, it`s very much the same thing.
Now we know a little more about the guy that supported Rudy G for President in 2000, and this after telling us that he was deeply in repentance for supporting these same types of things while a Democrat.
The big lie is that he voted for Reagan twice??? I call him a liar, voted for Reagan yet campaigned for Gore in 1988...give me a break
and they should go back to Mexico and wait 12 years to get a visa????
other people do
at least they ones who love and respect America
what makes the illegal aliens so special that they dont have to obey the laws and wait in line like everybody else ???
Wouuld you be jumping on me if I had not waited but just
waltzed into the US ???
or would I be one of youre special interest group...the illegal aliens then ???
And he’s still standing. He had a strong debate.
Yeah its that 80/20 thing haunting him again....
Romney look desperate tonight.
At times so did Bachmann, Santorum and Huntsman. Too many canned answers.
Glad you’re back—safely.
BAchmann lost me tonight compltely. I had no idea she was such an airhead. She stood there and listened to explainations and then pretened they said something completely different. I don't want anyone that empty headed near the levers of power. Boy, what a revelation!
Jewels from Tiffany's. (lol.)
That is a good reason to advertise the vaccine. People should talk to their doctor, and if they agree that the vaccine would be good for them, they should get it.
The vaccine should not be mandated for school attendance, because it’s not generally something you get from contact at school. Yes, there are a LOT of kids hooking up at school and having oral sex, but that’s not the point of school.
Perry was well-intentioned but wrong on the vaccine. He wanted to make it more readily available to children, and the school vaccine program was a way to do it where a law already existed. But it was wrong-headed, and at least he learned a lesson but it doesn’t make it right.
I really agree with your post. Bachmann was tough, Perry somewhat weak. I don’t dislike him but he needs to sharpen his debating skills. Bachmann did a very good job.
The guys are gonna hate her, no doubt about it.
He’s still standing. Tough as it is it’s working for him.
I am a Palin fan but Perry is a tier 1 candidate. The last thing I want to see is him knocked out so Romney can step up to fill the void, and all the candidates but Newt and Cain fell for it.
Bachmann is still telling lies in her interview with WB.
I don’t mind strong women at all as you know because you have met my wife, but I do hate a Hillary type bitch.
She sure as hell is off my scorecard.
You’re not allowed to investigate. Gov Perry is looking out for the health of 12 year old girls and that’s all that matters.
If they come up with an AIDS vaccine he can inoculate all our school children less than a year after it comes out. Because eventually they are going to have sex
[I just dont get her over attacking Perry and not Romney who is way to her left. Maybe because she started dropping in the polls after Perry entered, so shes pandering to Romney.]
She wants to be Romney’s VP.
netmilmom, YOU and YOUR kids aren’t the target of gardasil, nor am I and MY kids, nor are most FReepers. The vaccine is needed for sexually active adolescents. Most of them don’t have parents who are terribly involved in their lives.
Do you think for one minute that those parents would ‘go to the trouble’ of filling out an opt-in form? You and I would readily have opted out, no questions asked. But WE are involved in our kids’ lives.
Gardasil is not for, as Michelle Bachmann keeps saying, “innocent little girls.” It’s for sexually active 11-12+ year olds. Anyone who thinks that many innocent-looking middle school girls aren’t sexually active is keeping their head in the sand.
Yeah that video of his speech at La Raza did it for me...
BINGO!!!!!!!!!! She epitomized EVERY female stereotype tonight.....
I do not want or need SHRILL or WHiny I want a LEADER (and she is NOT IT)
This debate had created entry for Sarah Palin.
Sarah no on with Gerta!!
Think about what you’ve just suggested. If you were them, would you go back?
“But it was wrong-headed, and at least he learned a lesson but it doesnt make it right.”
Same thing I’d say about things Reagan did, got burned, and learned from.
Send him money. I’m doing it now.
We were supposed to have leaders who served because they loved our country. Not leaders who want to be served and loved by the country.
Obama, and most in politics now...are just egomaniacs who chose politics to get fame, fortune, feather their nest, and grab power. Cain has done that...does not need ego gratifying attention. He just wants to do the job right. That would be the best change in Washington we could have!
>> “Perry got KOd bad” <<
The real Rick had to come out sooner or later.
Sarah Palin on Greta commenting on the debate right now.
