Newt is being knocked down
Moderator rang the bell for the round.
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.
Romney is one nasty SOB. I hope this backfires on him.
Mitt is pissing Newt off and looking like a harpy. Brian Williams is happy to let Romney ramble on. Newt really needs to open a can of whoop ass and I think he will.
Mitt and Newt hacking away at each other...both bleeding badly.
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.
My bad....I really can not stand Brain Williams.
No, Romney is pathetic. He looks really bad in this exchange.
omg!!!!! I cant stand willard!!!!!!!!! what a creepy ,whinny crybaby!!
And the problem is the audience is complying!
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.
Fred Thompson endorses Newt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Romney’s trying to get the nomination the same way Obama got his Senate seat. Forget America and its problems, attack the opposition.
Williams did Romney a HUGE favor cutting it off "just then"...
Newt just took a 5 minute severe beat down by Romney....
Newt told CBS in this mornings interview that in 2008 he advised Fannie/Freddie against what they were doing.
Yep this is a mess, they are both coming of badly
