>> Unfortunately, this one is going to stick on Newt long term.<<

Newt hit that slimey crap and those that hang on to it out of the park tonight. His ex was lying. She was clingy and wanted him to not go out and work on his career. She was a needy beotch who has no self esteem.

What is up with the attacks on Rick? Listen to him... steady, solid, not doing/saying things you have to worry about!

So true!!

Sarah renewed her support? I'm still sick and I'm devoting my time here to our FReepathon thread, so I must have missed the thread or news about Sarah Palin!!!!

I slept through Governor Perry's endorsement, which I thought was courageous, patriotic and an act of true Christianity.

God bless Governor Perry!

Santorum lectures Newt on the individual health insurance mandate.

Newt fails to point out that Santorum was also for an indiviudal health insurance mandate.

Santorum Supported Individual Health Insurance Mandate In 1994 Republican Primary

And Newt failed to point out that Santorum voted for the Precription Drug Mandate.

Obviously, CNN is hoping to knock Newt out.

Santorums drivel about wondering what Newt will say next went over like a fart in church...weak applause.

Santorum really does inflate his resume a lot...and trots out the same old examples over and over.

I really don’t like these questions. They are not designed for detailed description of policy but rather to get the Republicans attacking each other. Too much Jerry Springer, not enough policy.

Iowa was a fluke. Santorum was down in the low double/high single digits in SC today. Gingrich was leading Romney by 6 points.

So why not ask Gingrich the questions...oh, I guess it’s because they can get Santorum to attack Gingrich and do their work for them. But it’s backfiring, because it’s sure not making Santorum look good.

Rick has the nasty edge to his demeanor tonight. It’ all folks will remember.

It's very obvious tonight, and hard to watch. He's making me wince. And I agree with him on most things.

CNN is using Santorum to the best of their ability to split the vote again to help out Mittens.

“I have to agree with Rick here - that it is a concern that Newt says things at times that are “worrisome””

Exactly.... Rick is solid and doesn’t have skeletons in his closet, no matter how exposed they are in Newt’s.

Didnt Santorum vote to raise the debt ceiling FOUR times?? Is Newt perfect, absolutely not..but Santorum is kind of a hypocrite to talk about learning from mistakes. Newt admitted he made one, Santorum should too

Ron Paul is truly a sick man. He's dumping on our American military yet again. Free Republic heartily supports the Bush Doctrine, favoring a proactive stance of pre-emptive strikes against evildoers.

There's no doubt that Mitt Romney is an evil Marxist. Ron Paul is an equally evil pacifist, better in the company of Code Pink and others who hate America.

FUMR and FURP!

Newt is doing good, but Santorum has the deer in the headlights look tonite. The only person Santorum is taking out of the race is himself. This is going to be Newt or Romney.

Well, you fooled me. You had the Paulite talking points about Newt down pat. which “talking point” is not true?? I love Newt... but, he would NOT be good President. He's a Big Government Progressive.. and, PROUD of it. no thanks..

Here is the problem ass I see it.

Sarah,Marco and Paul Ryan are not running.

We have three rinos and a wackjob running for the nomination.

We will have to prod any of the three who win its just a matter of how much. If you pick the most conservative of the three,don't even consider Paul he's a nut,you come up with Newt every time as the most conservative of the three. He's my pick. Will we have to prod him once he gets in and start to go over to the other side? Sure! But the other two are no better.
