Wouldn’t it be nice if they were asked about food and gas prices, jobs, the debt, Iran, the “Arab Spring”?

Gingrich is succinct!

Yes, he says a lot with few words. I think he is in his zone.

I think Newt is being very careful not to come across as ‘angry white guy’.... Gotta give him credit, don’t think I would be as calm if I were up there listening to Romney spout lies.

Look for Williams to reprimand the audience for any outburst
for Newt.

Newt’s “non-energy” is a rope-a-dope ... he’s going to wear Romney out and down then go in for the kill. Lulling him into a false sense of security

He knows he has to sparingly use "angry Newt".

That's what I heard too...he was leaving the door open.

It’s boring because Williams has removed the “People” from the debate.

NBC has intentionally built a stage using red front-panel podiums, and red backgrounds. Psychologically, the color red creates a negative impression on people. NBC wants all Republicans to be viewed negatively to help their blessed Obama.

Anyone else notice that Mitt constantly has his hands in his pockets while others are answering questions?

Is he playing pocket pool? ;-)

I don’t either. I wonder what kind of audience they have in there. They probably wouldn’t let me stay, I’d be up and cheering Newt on!

Yeah, I think Newt knows he can’t make a career out of attacking the media all the time. He’s also in a box if the audience breaks the rule he’ll look bad so he’s going to take a lower energy approach tonight I think.

Repetitious questions by Williams. Without Newt this debate wouldn’t have any spark. Mitt is on the defense which is a losing stategy

It is about time that Romney finds his footing saying “I’m not going to apologize for my success”.

Too late, I think...

Those subjects are way over Brians's head. He is strictly tabloid.
