Oh, God! John Huntsman, it’s a philosophical question! Answer the question or STFU!!! ANYONE BUT HUNTSMAN FOR GOP CANDIDATE!!!
The crowd is NOT into Romney. He just forges ahead for the RINO viewers.
The first thing Ron Paul would do when he got into office would be to write an executive order prohibiting executive orders.
Michelle Bachman as Speaker of the House=brilliant selection.
You can tell that Mitt isn't really resonating with the crowd.
I can’t help but think if there’s one election cycle where people won’t give a rip about personal baggage, 2012 is it.
Romney on taxes-—zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
Question from VA—on executive orders. Paul gets to answer.
Says EOs have been abused by Pres. for years—should never be used to legislate. Crowd agrees.
Perry gets question on Gardisil EO.
Admits mistake, but wanted to make difference in young people’s lives.
Newt said GE didnt pay ANY taxes...and sat right there during the speech while bo talked about closing loopholes.
You betcha ;)
Mit looks like he just pee’d in his pants in that picture.
My gosh.. why the hell do we even allow a contender like Huntsman? I think he has overdosed on caviar.
LOL, you’re going to fit right in. Good luck to you.
Perhaps Newt is over regarding being President, but he is and can continue to have a positive impact on the election and on this country and that is why I don’t see him out yet. He is very valuable in these debates, as you so noted.
wolf is directing ?s against perry.
Did Bachmann just say she has 3 children? What about the 38 foster kids?
Bachmann must have wax in her ears.
She didnt hear the part about “opt out”
Oooops. Michelle went a little shrill.
He’s saying it again. OPT-OUT!!!! Duh.
“Yep, hopefully san fran nan will be gone in 2012 (ok I wish big) but she can still watch from afar. Bachmann needs to go after that position!”
Repeal Obamacare! Speaker food...
everything directed at Perry by Wolf is to give the media soundbites against Perry.
This tells me that the liberal establishment is deeply worried about that handsome guy.
I have no idea why Huntsman is there.
A Mitt plant, perhaps?
And that (also IMO) makes him one hell of an American patriot.
Yeah, good point and I agree.
I never thought it possible that zero would not be the candidate simply because of his race. But if he sinks any lower, and I believe Rush about DNC internals, they have to be bottoming out for the Joker about now,anything is possible.
Romney screwed up his nose at Perry earlier
and now he does to Bachman
is he bored ???
Bachman is going to get it! Rick, will hit back.
Bachmann...oh dear. She won’t be Perry’s VP.
I agree. Michelle, step back, take a breath and re-find your stride.
Actually dove right into bitchy!
BACHMANN JUST WENT OVER THE CLIFF
>> Bachmann must have wax in her ears.
No doubt. Bachmann is being a divisive jerk.
Michell should not have gone there.
Both my girl and my boy were forced to get a “government injection” a number of times throughout their lives.
Perry is taking an awful beating over those vaccinations by executive order...
Tag teaming against Perry on the vaccine.
I hope that he stays in these debates as long as possible, he has been doing a great job “re-focusing” the dialogue!
I’ve been impressed by Michelle prior to tonight.
LOL! Offended to be bought for only $5000.00. ZING!!!!!
Bachmann and Santorumn getting desperate.
Rick just said “if you think I can be bought for $5k...”
So he IS a whore and we are just haggling over the price?
They're ALL kicking Rick.
Rubio speaks from most Americans’ hearts. He holds the values necessary to propel this nation in the direction needed to forestall the consequences from our current resident Marxist-in-Chief.
They need to get back to the economy....enough of the sidetrack.
Good intentions do not equal good EO’s.
Bachmann goes after drug company benefitted from Gardisil EO—ties political contributions to Perry.
Bachmann and Perry dueling over Gardisil.
Santorum jumps in—says no gov’t ourpose in having little girls vaccinated; bad policy; says should not have been done.
Perry tries to rebut, with prolife bonafides.
I think Huntsman is the Anderson Cooper candidate...and yes, you may quote me
“Protects life” isn’t going to cut it, Rick.
Perry got KO’d bad
