Nice to see the unity on English as nations language in a Florida debate.

I simply refuse to watch it on the tube.
Had a few minutes on a stream feed, but wanted to reach thru the line and strangle that insufferable ass MR.

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.
LOL

Romney protests too much...

From the National Governor’s Association Website: November 2004

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.

http://www.nga.org/cms/home/news-room/news-releases/page_2004/col2-content/main-content-list/title_governors-target-nation-s-housing-crunch.html

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.

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.

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.

I hate this liberal lady, whoever she is. Her loaded question on “the threat of an oil spill” was shot down by Santorum.

Santo could have made the point that foreign nations like China is drilling for Cuba not so far from the Florida Keys.

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.

It would at least provide some comic relief if Brian Williams turned around and wagged his finger at the audience if they applauded. Maybe he'd cry or something. Anything to liven up this borefest.

SANTORUM. Good one on illegal aliens. He points out they continue to violate laws after they initially violate it by entering the US Sovereign National Territory. This is true. They necessarily have to continue to violate laws other than immigration to maintain their residence here, through lying on forms, false docs, etc. etc. Nobody else is saying this I think.

Yeah they did. Bubba Brian at the start told the audience to stay out and be quiet. Makes for a truly boring debate.It also allows the DBM a lot more leverage in picking who won and who didn't!! Guess who won't be seen as a winner,....if you said 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.

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.
