Juan is glad that Mitt is releasing his tax forms...Bret jumps in and says that he “might” but Juan is convinced.

I am personally going to write Juan Williams and tell him what a race baiter he is. I have tried to forgive this man over and over for his misgivings ...but tonight was just the END. He is shameless.

NO, Juan ...Romney did NOT say he’d release his tax returns ...it was clearly vague ... STOP trying to defend him you POS!!!!!

My ranking is this: 1. Newt 2(t). Perry and Santorum

The rest ? Who cares ? They’re not Conservatives!

You got that right—I get so tired of all the mean-spirited Santorum hate on this forum I can't wait to vote for him this Saturday.

“If I were voting today it would be for Santorum.” The Great One, Mark Levin 1/10/2012 and 1/16/2012

Perry had a lot of excellent answers tonight. I said just recently that he had nothing going for him, but I think you can make the case that he’s got momentum.

I like the sound of that :-)

We need a President who can think on his feet and does not need to be spoon fed all the answers. Newt is the only one who fills the bill.

IF anyone doesnt think NEWT wiped the floor in tonights debate..they are a quart LOW!!!! IF he has “fair and balanced” response time they would need a triage area for Mittens and Paul

I'm still shocked they gave Newt the last question. Maybe Fox News saw their ratings finally start tanking after they were pimping the hell out of Romney and somebody passed a note along to ease up.

My rankings:

1.) Newt - Best in Class.
2.) Perry - His single best debate performance.
3.) Romney - Took a lot of big hits, but was slick many times. Laser focus on BO.
4.) Santorum - Started good, finished up looking like Big Government Rick.
5.) Paul - He gained no votes tonight, and lost many.

Perry knocked it out of the park on every single answer. Showed some humor and was downright likable.

******************************************

YES and the audience roared their approval...especially on his zinger......Federal Government is at War wotj South Carolina!

Gov. Haley was aplauding his statement vigously!

Those same charts also said that Ron Paul was fantastic on everything, so that should tell you something. Romney actually did very well on most things while Paul, as usual, was a disaster on everything. Perry did very well and was given poor remarks. That “feedback” is clearly engineered by Paulbots.

As a Santorum supporter, there is no question Gingrich won this debate so decisively that all the others were left behind in the dust. Were I in SC, I would probably vote for Gingrich on Saturday. I still think Santorum would be a good president, but his chances are too remote.

Great honest post,thanks.

Perry's answers were more about Obama and this failure, big government is stifling the US

He has the credibility with the TX economy out shinning the rest of the country.

I think Juan is not near the “liberal” he “plays” on Fox. Sure—he’s not a “staunch conservative”—but he’s no “race pimp”! I think his questions helped Gingrich—and that may not have bothered Juan as much as some people might think.

“Foxnews will, no doubt, unanimously call Romney the winner.
The internet will claim Ron Paul wiped the floor with them all.”

The FOX Neocon Channel (FNC) should hire you and can one of their regulars. Excellent point!

Listening to Juan explain why he felt it important to bring up race issues, you’d believe that he did it to help Newt. I think it was his lame way of removing the egg off his face as he tried to double talk his way out of it. Frank Luntz said it’s the very time that he could recall a standing ovation at a debate for Newt.

There’s a lot to like about Perry but I’m afraid Obama would get the best of him in debates.
