He did great going after Mitt but died when he went after Newt on the mandate. He is about to get spanked while looking snippy.

Tennessee suffered from TN-Care. It almost bought them a state income tax.

SANTORUM is getting into that Bachmann II mode again. Too loud, too long, too desperate for an applause line and praying for a standing O. What a cranky nag he becomes sometimes.

Santorum took the scalpel to Romney and Newt on healthcare mandates.

Santorum talking about legislation written on healthcare, something more important than all the Ex-Wives of the world #CNNDebate #scdebate

Little Ricky is STILL a boring, sanctimonious little Boy Scout... and, no, I DON’T want a boring President. We need a leader. Not this self-important fool.

Rick is sniping at Newt....not good.

Santorum takes the first shot tonight at the other candidates, Romney and Gingrich.

Sorry bout that sore throat...but I find myself doing a lot of yelling lately.

BTW, I had a crazy aunt who was once in a santorum. Her tales were like "One Flew over The Cuckoo's Nest"...and she has worn a sweater vest ever since.

Just saying.;-)

Newt went nuclear on CNN for asking about his marriage.

Being specific... pundit asked directly if Newt wanted an open marriage as his ex-wife stated. This was the first question of the night and Newt unloaded on CNN for their "dispicable" way of starting a Presidential Election...and he did not let up...Pundit like a dog with his tail between his legs...

I've been a Santorum supporter, but his answers have been terrible tonight. He should have dropped out today and thrown his support to Gingrich.

You're right, and I hope SC voters make that decision for him, or else the WINNER TAKE ALL provision will throw ALL delegates to Romney!


It's going to be a squeeker! Some of Rick.P's support will go to Newt, but the ABC slime machine tonight will try to undo that.




Any Santorum supporters who do NOT want to give their delegates to Romney should vote Newt.

I think the events of today wore Newt out. but he may be getting his sizzle back. Has he mentioned Perry’s support yet? He should.

It’s boring when Romney talks. I have a difficult time paying attention.

I listen to Newt and I try to follow Ron Paul for amusement.

Santorum is not exciting to me either.

Santorum just attacked Newt... can hardly wait for Newt to reply...LOL.

Mitt still is defending OK on RomneyCare ... Rick scored, but didn’t knockout Mitt. I think his bringing in Newt challenging him on it was bad for Rick.

I thought Newt handled his latest hit job well and with class. I was also glad to see Sarah renew her support for him..HE may just win SC.And even if Romney wins(buys) Floriduh he only gets half the delegates since we were penalized for going early! So, Newt is in this big time IMHO.
Santorum going up against Romney looks desperate and his attacks are always bushleague compared to Newt.

Well, you fooled me. You had the Paulite talking points about Newt down pat.

Oh what a night it is going to be. Starts in 20 mikes. Thanks for the kind words FRiend. Let’s just hope that Newt does well tonight and Santorum goes after Romney and Obama only. I seriously forgot that Paul was still in it. I think he is done except for the big Virginia win he will have.

Funny how long RPaul was out of it! It was great as long as it lasted.

I have to agree with him, though that gov’t involvement in healthcare (including landing a good blow on Rick due to his support of the prescription drug prog.)
