In Seattle the debate is on at 9pm, channel 5. Don’t despair - you can record it later, or watch live now at http://www.mediaite.com/tv/watch-the-nbcnational-journal-republican-debate-live-here/

True: Santorum is pretty darned good on foreign policy. If he were to be put on a ticket as Veep, that would be the best reason.

Worst debate ever, and that is saying something. The only thing I have gained is just more evidence that mitt is a scum bag.

Romney looks tired and his psyche is getting
weak. He doesnt look very fresh compared to other debates.

Santorum needs to stay on the Jihadist threat. He has been on this since he was in Congress. Paul is unraveling on the Straits of Hormuz.

We love to jump on Fox around here but the Fox debate (SC) was the best debate I’ve seen lately.

This one not so much.

At least the personal attacks have stopped.

That was insufferable. Mitt is desperate but he did succeed in taking Newt off his game a lot.

Newt on Iran - obama sent the wrong message by cancelling joint op’s/training with Israel.

Paul - Iran has No interest to close the straights of Hormuz? (huh?? this is Iran we are talking about....they are crazy, Ron)

Did Newt just say the American people didn’t want to go to war against Japan after Pearl Harbor was bombed? BIG gaffe.

Ron Paul standing up for Castro. Big shock. sarc/

We couldn’t have been more wrong if we thought Newt releasing documents would shut Romney up about Freddie-Mac. Never going to happen.

So far Newt’s been mostly on the defensive. I don’t think he’s winning this debate.

I’m not able to watch it, are you sure that Newt is winning this debate or is it possible that you have a bias for any of these candidates and you might be allowing it to cloud you opinion?

Again, I can’t watch the debate, I am really looking for an unbiased opinion here.

“I have to agree. Maybe they should settle it the old fashioned way like Hamilton and Burr. Pistols at 10 paces at noon.”

Well, Romney doesn’t believe in guns and if he had one in Mass., he’d have to pay $100 a year tax to keep it. He’d probably shoot himself in the foot - should be his head.

I don’t know if Newt is a gun man - if not, I’ll loan him my great big old shotgun, not a sissy pistol.

Can we turn down RuPaul’s microphone, keep the NO DOZE away from Santorum who is bored, and tell Newt’s grandkids to remind him to smile. After all, he is dealing with clowns and needs to behave accordingly. It makes him even more endearing.
