Luntz grudgingly admits Newt won.

Good debate tonite. One of the best.

I loved the way Newt went after Juan Williams on the minor jobs topic. Flat out smoked him and exposed the liberal media. (again)

Perry did better than he has in a while.

Paul was out there crazy again.

Santorum disappointed me tonite. Came off as weak and timid.

Newt and Romney did the best. Newt probably edged Romney, but will it be enough to change things?

All candidates got good information in. Probably due to having fewer candidates on the platform.

No big lines or major gaffes by anyone. End the end, this won’t change much. I do think SC will close some before Saturday. But Romney’s lead in the polls has been growing the last few days. Will anything in this debate change that momentum? Probably not. Mitt wins SC by at least 5 points. And looks like he will blow them all out in FLA.

This one is just about over.

Newt is amazing. The best presidential candidate since Reagan. Romney caught in LIES. FLAT out brazen lies. NEWT STANDING O!!!!!!!!!!!!! GOOOOOOOOOOOOO NEWT!!!!!!!!
IF Romney is against Mccain/Feingold....why did he have McCain stump for him? IF Mitt is against the super pacs ..why did he tell Newt after Iowa “if you can’t take the heat get out of the kitchen” HEARD THERE are fireworks outside going on for Newt and the standing O lasted into the commercials...GOOOOOOOOOOOOOO NEWT

“Perry looked like a shallow politician imitating a real politician”

Just goes to show that you did not watch the debate...maybe you can watch the rerun.

The FOX debate panel think Newt did well.

Ed Rollins just had an awkward moment saying he can't picture the black lady hosting the debate panel in a hood.

Luntz on now. Says he’s never seen a standing O in the middle of a debate.

Newt had a very, very good night!

Luntz is saying Gingrich had the most applause lines. He thinks Gingrich will get a bump from this debate.

Here’s a new psychological term for you Marcella: “re-tread”. Newt is a re-tread - who obviously needs money and wants to sell books/personal speaking engagements.

Lunz said he’s never seen a standing-O that Gingrich had in his 16 years at debates.

He thinks Newt is going to be moving up in the polls.

Newt has to regroup his team pronto tonight!

a. Tomorrow, he and his team should go ballistic pronto!
Dont lose any momentum.

b. Keep smacking Romney on Thursday on CNN!

And this is EXACTLY why Obama does NOT want to face Newt in a debate.

I wouldn't stake Newt's election on his ability to debate. The left will simply do what we did with W when he faced Gore and Kerry....set low expectations. When Newt wins, they will claim they expected it but we held our own. It worked for us in 2000 and 2004.

I also say that Juan Williams is more Conservative than RuPaul and Mitt Commie, just my two cents.

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

I disagree. I think a person with character and core beliefs will prevail over someone trying to memorize the answers. That's my fear with Romney, two of them trying to memorize answers.

This is the real story about Bain Capital and how they bought companies loaded them with debt,took out all they could as dividends using the cash from the loans they made against the newly bought companies and then watched them die in a few years.IT was a tax code play anything but pure capitalism...

I've been thinking about this - it's predatory capitalism, let's call it "kill the goose" capitalism, analogous to force-feeding then killing geese to make pâté de foie gras.

Newt put on a good show but Santorum is still more conservative and a man of morals. Thankfully, I live in South Carolina and RS is getting my vote and any others I can convince between now and Saturday.

Criticism is not hate. I support Rick, but this was not a good night for him especially in the second half. Should have never gone after Newt on the reason to have private accounts. Made him look status quo.

Newt won, hands down! Even though Romney got twice the time.

***

Absolutely — and with much TOUGHER answers — even accusatory questions. Romney got nothin’ but softballs, and still didn’t handle them as well.

And that’s why we need Newt to go up against Obama. The ONLY one who can and will hand him his hat.

This was a good debate. At this point very few delegates have been awarded. Whichever Conservative-non-Romney candidate finishes first in South Carolina, should become the non-Romney candidate and the others should drop out and endorse that candidate. I would willing support (in order) Santorum, Gingrich, Perry. Romney is my last choice but I would willing darken the circle for him vis-a-vis Obama.

I can not vote Ron Paul (although I agree with him about Federal Reserve). Were Ron Paul to win the GOP nomination, I would have to vote for the Constitutional Candidate.

‘Does Luntz ware a rug’?

yes he does and so does the FIRST LADY OF THE UNITED STATES, SHE HAD ONE ON TODAY.
as a former hairdresser I can pic out the line instantly...this first lady spends mega bucks on wigs, hair pieces and first class stylist..
I knew a gentleman in Ohio who made hair pieces for many in Washington D.C. he was very good at what he did....
