Short commercial ad first.
Six candidates are participating.
Eddie Haskell Hunstman has declined the invitation.
Herman Cain suspended his campaign today and will not participate.
(Excerpt) Read more at foxnews.com ...
Rick Perry is going to try to void Obamacare by the executive branch.
Nominate his Sec. of HHS and scrap all the rules because there’s hundreds
of rules that HHS makes.
Maybe this is an ingenious plan by Perry.
Or Perry is a complete rogue. ??? That’s why Ken C. was kind of incredulous.
He did mention the Supreme Court upcoming decision in summer.
Yeah, he didn’t do well on that question of the executive order.
Darn straight and I like it.
- I have encountered many people like Newt over the years
- When the chips are down Newt will always do what is best for Newt
- Newt will always leave without paying his share of the tab
- “I depend upon the naiveté of others” - Newt
Yeah....you’re right. But I can’t say for sure that’s it since I support Newt enthusiastically and he’s got the charisma of an actuary.
Sarah Palin endorsed her! Mama Grizzly!
Well, hopefully the voters will vote for him, and his candidacy isn’t determined by those in the media.
He’s for sure the real deal and gave some great answers.
Seems I read that he was in hock to Tiffany’s for half a million dollars at some point. Don’t think my admiring her jewelery was such an aggitating comment, lol.
Santorum has a very sick child at home, can’t expect him to look very cheerful these days.
Saw her many times on FOX (Greta and Hannity), she is no dumb blond, I guarantee.
I actually have to remember that little recipe, no joke. Thanks.
His story on the border has not waivered.
Cains story changed with pressure.
Newts story’s change with pressure.
Bachmanns story’s change with pressure
I wish they would ask then all who their fav founding father is.
I would say, my favorite founding “person” is Abigail Adams !! She was cool. Fighting for women’s rights and freedom from slavery.
She commented that you will never see the Dems participating in this type format.
BTW, Breaking NEWS:
And the more you look at this new DMR poll just out the better it gets for Newt.
One notable finding: The results show Gingrichs ascendancy has the potential to grow, pollster J. Ann Selzer said.
More respondents choose Gingrich as their second choice than any other candidate.
I’m waffling between Perry and Santorum now.
I think my heart is still broken about Herman Cain. I know his campaign manager, and am so disappointed that Cain was not vetted properly first so there wouldn’t be surprises.
Lsu and ga was a damn good game,
Cain’s been lynched. It doesn’t matter what Cain’s position is on the border anymore.
Perry is RIGHT! education should be a LOCAL MATTER!
Finally, an illegal immigration question. I wonder if Huckabee will bring up the mythical person that has lived in the US for 25 years w/out committing a crime, has a family, goes to church, hasn’t taken taxpayer benefits, and just happens to be an “undocumented immigrant” as a reason to have a path to legal status plan that would end deportation of all illegal aliens.
And on a side note.....
Just saw a mattress ad. They might want to rethink having a woman say: “Ask my husband why I never wake up any more when he comes to bed.”
Thanks for the Link! :)
I wish Palin were hosting this, not Huckabee. While I’m in wish mode...GINGRICH/PALIN 2012.
This is a great format.
He doesn’t sound out of his depth to me. I like how he thinks.
I don’t think Paul is going to participate
Even if Cain had been vetted, it doesn’t mean that these things wouldn’t have happened. The Democrats were going to get rid of him no matter what.
To assume that these are anything more than outright lies, is to assume that he was guilty of everyone of these accusations. And today, there is still no definitive proof that he didn’t anything wrong. Other than not telling his wife about loaning money to a lady.
where’s Huckabee? taking a nap?
Too bad that the money Newt to pay for those gifts earned had the stinking stain of Fannie Mae on it.
It is a great format.
No, he bought the jewelry technically on credit, but only because we typically don’t carry around 1/2 a million when we visit a store. It was a regular Tiffany’s revolving account, which Gingrich paid in full within a month or two.
No, Paul’s there. Should be extremely interesting.
Newt was awesome! I feel sorry for anyone that has to follow him.He’s brilliant.
Um Newt just said that too.
Perry looks like Shemp.
OK, got me there. Fannie/Freddie is a real issue.
Good luck with that!...uh...how?
Probably so and the majority of politicians are likely the same. They have large egos to begin with and the power of office just adds to it in many cases. Slow going here for me, lol.
I like Perry. He's now my number 2 choice. But, he doesn't grasp the importance of killing Obamacare with legislation that says, "Repeal in its entirety." Kill the beast with legislation, not with an executive order that the ACLU can challenge in court.
I too love this format but it wouldn’t work with Obama.
He’d filibuster on the first question and his 11 minutes would be up. Lots of uh,oh,uh,em,oh,uh too.
Gingrich sure didn’t hurt himself tonight.
In fact, I think everyone has done well tonight.
Perry just named James Madison as his favorite Founding Father....
Who all thinks Perry was just holding up a Pottery Barn catalog?
Ha! People thought Perry was going to pull out his flat tax form and he pulled out the constitution!
Rick came with props. Lol.
He’s too usedcaresalesmansy for my taste.
They lost me when GHW Bush was their nominee. At least Noot recognizes the evil danger of agenda 21. I like my governor more than Perry. A lot more. State's rights.
Here's what: we can't let Zero pick the next Supremes. We can't let DeathCare go into action.
It isn't over, it's just just beginning.
I like this format a lot better than the liberal media smash mouth sessions they call debates.
Newt...smoke and mirrors!
Yeah, Huckabee just said he will be on after Michelle Bachmann. I didn’t hear him announce Paul at the beginning
Wow, paid off the half a million in a month or two. I’ll have to look it up tomorrow!
