Bill O’Reilly’s expert on body language says this is a typical thing for him to do .... she didn’t give it any special meaning. He makes a lot of other movements/gestures that she said projects .....(surprise surprise) weakness!!

Why only two years? I can’t help but wonder if there is something significant in the returns from other tax years.

Why can’t they applaud??? so boring

They should applaud anyway, just to irritate NBC and Brian "NPR voice" Williams.

The no applause is stifling. I can’t stand when Myth smile/smirks at the person answering. Santorum bringing up the Wall Street Bail out—they should have been allowed to fail.

“I give Brian Williams credit. He is doing a very straight job so far.”

I disagree. Every question is an attempt to get one of the candidates to criticize the others. I don't want to hear about Bain Capital. I want to hear what each will do about taxes, spending, regulations, bureaucracy, appointed judges, foreign policy and other important policies that a President deals with.

Romney Profits From Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac: Despite demonizing Speaker Gingrich for his work for Fannie/Freddie, and the continual disparaging of them on the campaign trail, Romney personally invested up to $500,000 in these organizations and made up to $50,000 last year alone. (Boston Globe, 9/19/11)

All the candidates need to SLOW DOWN when speaking in these debates. They’re all talking so fast that it’s easy to zone out and start snoozing.

Can’t these guys learn how to speak properly?

I am listening by radio, and from what I can tell, they are strictly forbidding any Interesting. p>Quite different from South Carolina.

I think Santorum is doing good from third perspecitive, not going "Occupy/Class Warfare" on Romney (which would come back to bite us), and hitting them on bailouts, also giving a fundamental lesson on economics, free markets and capitalism. My guess? Tonight? All four of these guys are probably just plain fatigued. I don't think there will be any real zingers tonight. But I might be wrong. Maybe the press will piss of Gingrich. That might do it. We will see.

“That said, I hope Daniels does a great job at skewering Obama. I’ll keep in mind that he (Daniels) was carefully and deliberately selected by the party. “

The Establishment is simply testing Daniels to see if he’s up to the job of trying to deny Newt the nomination.

He is TOTALLY Establishment, and must be stopped.

haha agreed. I get a kick out of Romney claiming to be a self made man. His dad was CEO of American Motors, a 3 term governor, ran for president, Mitt got legacy admissions to Harvard Law and Business schools. Yeah Mitt, did it all on your own didn’t you!

Newt did it the old fashioned way. Grew up middle class as the son of a military officer and educated himself to success. Newt really needs to hone in on this distinction.

Bain put up very little of the initial seed capital. IIRC something in the range 10%

NBC is disgusting.

David Gregory’s wife was lawyer for FreddieMac/FannieMae
and NBC DARES to lie about Gingrich regarding this matter.

One can almost see where Romney/BAIN/NBC is
working conspiratorially together.
