Nice to see the unity on English as nations language in a Florida debate.
LOL. Yep the St Pete Times is horrid liberal rag.
Williams is just execrable .. short of wearing a Ø tshirt, the miserable cretin couldn't possibly have been more of a tool.
I'm tempted to use the term 'whore' to describe him, but most of them actually have some professionalism (so i've been told ;-).
But now FR's gotten sooooooo slow I'm about to hang it up for the night and let the Republic try to survive the night without my sparkling input.
Thank you, Sheldon Adelson! Glad Newt has a rich supporter.
Romney protests too much...

Governors Target Nation’s Housing Crunch
New NGA Issue Brief Highlights Governors’ Efforts to Increase Housing Affordability and Availability
November 09, 2004
Governors are increasingly linking innovative housing strategies with broader economic and development policies to make housing more available and affordable for all, according to a new NGA issue brief .
Given that one in every seven Americans today spends at least half of their income on housing, governors are increasingly linking innovative housing strategies with broader economic and development policies to make housing more available and affordable for all, according to a National Governors Association (NGA) Center for Best Practices issue brief released here today at the 2004 Annual Housing Conference.
The brief, which was funded by the Fannie Mae Foundation, will help frame much of the discussion during today’s conference, “States of Change: Innovative Policy and Investments for Stronger Communities,” sponsored jointly by the NGA Center and the Fannie Mae Foundation. Progressive leaders in state housing policy, Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and Pennsylvania Gov. Edward Rendell will be featured speakers during the daylong symposium at the National Building Museum.
In his speech at the conference, Mitt Romney said: By leveraging public and private sector investment, we can increase our housing supply and support economic growth. Mitt Romney at 2004 NGA/Fannie Mae Foundation Housing Conference.
Key words: Progressive and leverage.
Romney just keeps agreeing with Gingrich
Yes, you are correct. The name changed Jan. 1 ... they still remain the most liberal newspaper ever.
Is this reporterette a La Raza plant?
Don’t like Newt’s answer on Dream Act. Although tolerable, I don’t feel they deserve to serve in our military. Dont’ want foreign people with questionable loyalties serving in the military, with access to weapons, etc.
Also don’t NEED them flooding the benefits roles, or to have to support their endless dependents until the end of time. This could EASILY bust the military/TRICARE budget to smithereens.
Oh, what’s up with putting tweets up on the screen?
He (Gingrich) did good on the English language, but I think he his going to screw himself on illegal aliens with a round of “compassionate conservatism”. Same with Romney. Romney is very slippery and just talking out of both sides of his mouth. I want to hear the Santorum position on this critical issue.
What, is NBC just going to stop the debate?!!
Santo could have made the point that foreign nations like China is drilling for Cuba not so far from the Florida Keys.
Stupidest debate ever.
“I wish he would just stick to economic issues and size of fed gov. stuff.”
I don’t - the more people see how dangerous and ignorant he is in this area, the better.
I think it’s funny how Newt gives very concise, well explained answers on his positions. Then Mitt says ‘yeah, what he said’.......
The audience was admonished “NO APPLAUSE, NO REACTIONS” early on. For the most part they have done so, although I bet that during the breaks they are being hammered again.
Attrition and Enforcement does work. NBC will do everything to claim otherwise. Santorum doing a great job talking about the laws broken by illegal aliens.
LOL! Santorum is the male version of Mother Theresa.
Should be added to the drinking game.
Babe reporter is scared. She remember how Newt bitch slapped whatever-her-name-was CNBC moderator like 4-5 debates ago.
Good find, FRiend! Sending this to Newt’s team now.
Yep, they’re taking the audience out of the equation.
>>>After reading what you all have to say about the debate, I think Ill skip it. Ill listen to what Rush has to say tomorrow.
No, you won’t. Rush is off tomorrow. Mark Steyn will be filling in, as Rush noted today, ‘He’ll spend 3 hours trashing Newt...and I’ll be back to cleanup the mess on Wednesday...’
I fell asleep.
“Don’t want foreign people with questionable loyalties serving in the military”
They already do.
I’ve had problems on this end, so I have had to miss some of the debate.
Is Newt winning or not?
Whoa, don’t touch my sugars! I enjoy adding them to my grocery bill.
Rep Allen West is on Greta right now. Speaking highly of Newt!
I know. It’s my one area of disappointment with Newt. How can we talk about garnering more jobs for Americans when we’re contiuing to allow illegals to flood in uncontrollably.
Why can’t these transplanted kids earn their way through society anyway ...they want everything for free that most of us have had to work for. I’m tired of the idea that they receive any benefit which any other American doesn’t receive.
I might even write Newt about that.
Someone needs to change the pic of Milt to say “Whatever HE said”!
Santorum pointing out that illegals break one law being illegal; a second law is broken when they work; three as the probably stole someone’s SS number.
Yes, sir, it’s Santorum.
Stiffled laugh from the audience when Mitt said he would allow illegals to self deport...LOL LOL
Oh. Mark's really going to do that? Or was Rush kidding?
Romney is right on subsidies, crapcan them all.
That would be a kickass team.
Is this the Mitt show? He gets most questions and most time to blabber on.
Isn't this the truth... I used to enjoy listening to Steyn. Not anymore.
I’ve had enough! Going to see if Everyone Loves Raymond is on.
Good. I would love to see West as Newts VP.
Lol, is Mitt trying to come off like he has empathy? He seems like he’s about to cry.
Every time I flip over Romney is tallking. Is Newt getting equal time?
Newt was right. After World War 2 America was very anti-war right up to the attack on Pearl Harbor. When Pearl Harbor was attacked the country responded and went and kicked ass.
Newt was right. Paul was wrong.
Mitt trying to appear knowlegeable on local issues, after Newt’s coup in SC. Has to attack Obama’s golf. FAIL.
Romney GROWS A SET, begins taking it to Obama, AND NBC CUTS HIM OFF!!
