bRIAN WILLIAMS JUST THROWS OUT QUESTIONS ALL OVER THE PLACE!
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/
You’re not missing much when willard and paul are talking
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.
Yep newt is waking up
EXCELLENT NEWS!!!!!!!!!!!!! now, if he could just stop advertising that reverse mortgage.
I am SOOOOO sick of hearing this whiny old man blather on.
RuPaul cannot stop defending Iran. Sheesh. Go home, sir.
Ron Paul is insane. WE’VE committed an act of war already?
And Williams never will ...... up to the candidates to work it into their answers. I wish they would do it more ... Newt got in a few licks on the Straits of Hormuz, Obama weak, etc.
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.
I’ve got a mild headache I didn’t have about an hour ago.
The Rock Center feed is working.
He sort of does!
Every time Paul speaks he disrupts the flow. Get the hell out of there already freak.
You had to go and pick on my boy, Ron Paul. LOL!
I’ve got a mild headache I didn’t have about an hour ago.
Paul sounds like he’s ready to drop out and endorse Newt.
How do you get out of Afghanistan without talking to the Taliban?
Romney: “By defeating them.”
US has already committed an act of war on Iran
We’re western washington. No one in charge of things in Seattle cares about the G.O.P. or it’s debates.
So far, Newt = A-, Rick = B, Ron Paul = C+, Mitt = C.
I wish I had a mole in the debate audience. I wonder if the network is now lecturing them (during commercials) about applause.
My husband & I were offered tickets to tonight’s debate. Sure glad I didn’t go.. BORING>
Did Paul just say we won World War II quickly??
Or did I misunderstand that?
Romney-Newt-Paul — tie
Williams skips around too much and doesn’t let the dialogue develop. Argh. Boring.
Ha, Paul looks more refreshed.
we here in Fla have our heads spinning from this absurd, tangential line of questioning.The lack of audience response is mind numbing!
We in Jax, Fl hope our debate ( the next one) will be better than this fiasco!
Thank you for posting that good news in the middle of this very messy debate. This debate is driving me up the wall....... Much more sure as heck better go in Newts favor or we may have a problem.
He looks like a Supreme Court Justice. What did he say?
fingertip to nose! lol
Easily verified, lobbyists have to register and file financial reports.
About time, I think that newt was going to try and tone it down tonight....mistake.
Ron Paul is like the character (the actor later was
on Back to The Future movies) on tv series Taxi.
Paul’s gone bananas for a long time now! LOL
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.
That's an understatement. :-)
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.
NBC has probably bored the American people to change the channel
Hmmmm - The AWACS and black helicopters fly over your home too, I see - I thought it was jsut me!
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.
After watching Newt vs John King in the last debate, Brian Williams was thinking to himself, “Sh*t, I ain’t gonna mess with Newt tonight.”
