It was nice of them to take time off from their perpetual Occupy Wall Street 'protest' to attend this debate.

Scandalous! Mitt Romney stuttered on two words: “du-duplicate”, and en-entry!

If Herman Cain didn’t come on Savage’s show on Friday and refuse to be Mitt’s VP, I might have already tilted towards Newt.

I haven’t been watching this debate from the start, but I haven’t been impressed with Herman’s answers. He needs to give more substance.

Sure, Perry, you can’t even stand strong against that southern border with Mexico.

That is a really hard task when your hands are tired behind your back by the Federal Government.

Has anyone noticed that during the entire debate, the CBS website has been and is still displaying Cain’s answer to the friend or foe question on Pakistan???

As if his answer was bad?

Is there any question Cain is in the crosshairs here?

Scott Pelley is trying to dress down each candidate. by being rude
and not letting him finish.
We want to hear the candidates not you

WHO the hell is he?

One of these candidates is probably going to be the next President.

The voters have a right to know their foreign policy views. Since
there has been so little so far, it is MALPRACTICE by Scott Pelley and CBS

SHAME SHAME

I forgot to add, the DOE is responsible for disposing of our nuclear weapons as well.

Pantex, Los Alamos National Laboratory, and Sandia are DOE facilities. It's easy to make mistakes for people who aren't familiar with nuclear weapons to think the DOD is 100% responsible for our nuclear weapons.

That's one thing that was confusing about Perry's statements in the past about the DOE, but Perry flew C-130s and was definitely not familiar with our nuclear arsenal or the DOE's responsibilities in regards to it.

I loved the way he made the distinction that war is war with it’s own rule of law which is different from American civil law.

A distinction they don't teach in journalism school apparently.

Folks, you better get ready to switch to online, because NCIS comes on in 5 minutes.

Liberal journalists feel they’re part of the debate - the guy’s being a jerk. And who is he? It’s an old term from a bygone era - but he’s an ‘anchor’ of the nightly news...

“Ain’t it true !! He rambles for 3 or 4 minutes. No one cuts him off.”

I’m not a Romney fan, but that just isn’t true. I mean, the debate kicked OFF with the moderator cutting Romney off, and Romney had to insist that he hadn’t been given the full minute to answer.
