Mostly as snooooooooooooooooooze fest. Romney won’t make any ground on Newt from this debate.

I didn’t say that _I_ thought that reporter was hot, only that my computer must have thought she is since my connection to NationalJournal melted.

Romney taking it to Obama about the economy - when he does that, he does it well.

Don’t like Newt’s answer on Dream Act. Although tolerable, I don’t feel they deserve to serve in our military.

And Romney agreed, but we definitely should not allow illegal aliens to enlist if the gov't follows through on the proposed force reductions. Citizens who want to serve might not find slots, and we should accept no illegals under those circumstances, or any circumstances, IMO.

I can’t stand listening to Mark Steyn. Especially during the GOP Primary. Maybe he will get better once we have a nominee.

I think Romney has openly agreed with Newt for the fourth time tonight, by my count.

I've said before they'd make a good team. Newt/West 2012.

Only legal aliens (green card holders) can join the US military and they are given an expedited path to citizenship.

Newt was saved by a commercial.

Newt was off his game in the first exchange.

Mitt was attacking Newt as being a lobbyist and Newt responded that he did not make that much money from Freddie and Fannie as the money went to entities which means the money was going to employees and Newt was taking a small salary along with profits after expenses. Newt correctly responded that it was unfair and asked how much Bain made and it was not fair to say that Bain entity profits and Romney profits were one in the same.

For whatever reason Gingrich lost that point which was a winning argument and started babbling about Medicare.

Then Romney had his best moments.

For Newt thankfully there was a commercial.

After the commercial, there has been no real debate just boredom which favors the frontrunner who still appears to be Gingrich.

Serving in our military as a ‘fast track’ to citizenship has been part of the immigration policy since before WWII. Both my great uncle and my step great uncle served before they were citizens.

However, they were both here legally as refugees.

Faux News will be drooling tonight saying how Romney took Newt apart.

Frank Klutz will come along with a focus group who’ll say Romney looked like moron and Newt was presidential.

“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...’

Isn’t this the truth... I used to enjoy listening to Steyn. Not anymore. “

Ditto. Steyn’s anti-Newt vitriol makes me sick. If he’s on tomorrow, I’m not listening.

The last time Mark Steyn subbed for Rush, he spent the entire time bashing Newt.

I’ve always really liked Mark’s work in the past. My opinion has dropped sharply.

Sometimes Newt is a bit too honest.He is weak on immigration. He’s never been100% 80 at best. that being said he would make the best potus of anyone running and its not even close.

Romney finally mentioned the president and bad policies but interesting he would not mention the name obama.

Newt needs to get in and attack the current obama administration. Forget the back and forth with Romney.

I worked for the Missile Defense Agency until last month, when my entire branch was eliminated in response to force reductions. 850 jobs eliminated across the agency. If I find out an illegal has been hired when we U.S. citizens were ushered out the door, I'm going to be really ticked.

Romeny says we need to end subsidies (after Williams says Romney is being supported by Sugar subsidies...???)
