Mitt is pushing Newt to the limit. Mitt will not letup. The fireworks are about to start.

Looks like the rest of the debate will be about Freddie-Mac. Gotta admit Romney has Gingrich on the defense.

You expected SUBSTANCE, from an NBC-run debate?
REALLY?

Romney is truly loathsome and Williams has fallen asleep to let him run and run and run on.

Mitwit needs a good knock-the-smug-off ass-kickin'

Myth and Noot getting nasty. Newt calling out what Myth did w/McCAin and Huckabee.

I believe Romney is getting pwned.

BORING...

“Fannie Mae...gross profits at Bain...talking about Freddie Mac...making over a million dollars for your entities...over a million point six...what’s the gross revenue of Bain when you were associated with it?....”

Like two accountants arguing with each other.

This is a boring waste of time. None of these disputes between candidates will or can be resolved for the viewers in these constant back-and-forths between Newt and Romney.

Newt’s argument was going to be “What was total revenue for Bain vs. what was your personal salary, Mitt”?

But Mitt rambled on and cut him off. Newt got him stammering and stuttering when he couldn’t keep up with the argument.

Mitt beating a dead horse. Newt turns it around about Bain!

Mitten acting toooooo sanctimonious about lobbying. While Bain Capital employed scores of DC lobbyists over the years.

Mittens on the attack! Newt taking Mittens to the shed. Mittens just has to listen.

Mittens saying no question about it except Freddie MaC....OWNED BY you Newt. Newt fighting back about the gross revenue of Bain. Mittens saying Freddie Mac.

Newt being clear and schooling Mittens! It’s unfortunate Newt says and the American people see through it. Terrible way to run medicare! Newt did it out in the open.

Problem says Mittens, influence peddling. conflict. being paid to pass lesiglation.

Commerical break

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.

Romney is starting to lose it, he seems to feel this is his only angle of attack and everything is riding on it.

Damn shame the moderators won't let Newt respond.

Does Brian Williams fancy himself as a marriage counselor? This seems more of a counseling session.

Newt getting angry now, I thought he was going to blow.

Bring up Bain and Government Motors!!

A commercial break? Kind of convenient IMO.

Agreed. I think the attacks on newts work in DC and the attacks on Romneys income from Bain are both irrelevant. That said, we are seeing Mitts true colors and I think Newt is besting him n the debate.

I understand, but this is the best way to get it out. The horse is nearly dead, and Romney still wants to beat it. It ain’t working. Newt is turning it all back on him. It gets boring, which is bad news for Romney.

After this, nobody is going to want to hear Romney drone on and on about this crap. I think it’s fine that Williams is getting it out now.

Romney’s trying to get the nomination the same way Obama got his Senate seat. Forget America and its problems, attack the opposition.

Brian appears to be bowing to Zero in that photo.

Notice how Brian is steering this debate AWAY from Obama? Except for Ron Paul, Obama hasn’t been mentioned. Brian is a good little Obama rump swab, doing his hero a service by getting the candidates to throw mud pies at each other instead of focusing on the utter destruction Obama is wreaking on this country.
