Posted on 01/26/2012 3:56:03 PM PST by kristinn
Hosted by Wolf Blitzer at the University of North Florida in Jacksonville. Candidates: Newt Gingrich, Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum and Ron Paul.
Word is the audience will be "allowed" to participate.
What is Paul’s problem?
Shut up Paul, Obamacare is the entire subject!
Holly cow, Rick Santorum is doing great on attacking Romney Care and Obamacare.
Mitt prepared for New’s attacks, but forgot about Santorum.
His whole HEAD is turning RED.
Romney is perspiring and looking flush.
Of course Romneybot Morris is saying Romney is winning this exchange with Santorum.
Dumbest thing EVER SAID in a debate.!!
Blitzer uses Paul to stop Santo’s roll slamming Romney care.
bttt for PST peeps...
Santorum has won tonight’s debate so far....
Paul just cleaned the stage...Newt agreed.
Talk about handing all your opponents a campaign commercial!!!!! And you can't claim it's taken out of context!!!!
This audience is stacked for Romney. Cheering his every word.
That’s never happened before. It’s too obvious.
Mitt is a finger in the wind. And it is a flatulent wond blowing.
I loved that sparkle in Santorum eye when he listened to Mittens answer and Rick knew he had him
Newt is credible on taxes tonight. He scored on knowledge of important states issues. I am enjoying Santorum ripping into Romney on Romneycare.
Ron Paul is a distraction.
Romney is very unlikeable. He wanted to go deep on his finances and pride in being rich - I am not sure but I think this is not helping him.
The answer to “it’s not worth getting angry about”... is simply “YES IT IS YOU LIAR”
What in God’s name is rupaul blabbering about?
Santorum does NOT want Government to take care of it, it’s called repeal! sheesh
Newt’s letting Santorum give him a freebie.
Lying ass Romney saying his father was an immigrant from Mexico! What joke. Newt needs to come back and ask the asshole what his father doing in Mexico to start with.
He was there because his great grandfather Miles Romney was running from the law because he was about to go to prison for polygamy. Damn, I wish somebody would bring that up.
New = Newt
Agreed - moderator & audience stacked for Romney. I think he’ll “win” (by media opinion) this battle, but he’s losing the war because he looks like a fricking snake.
Ok, lets have some Hispandering.
Santorum’s playing the attack dog pretty well on Romorrhoid-care.
On his financial disclosure statement filed last month, Romney reported owning between $250,001 and $500,000 in a mutual fund that invests in debt notes of Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, among other government entities. Over the previous year, he had reported earning between $15,001 and $50,000 in interest from those investments. And unlike most of Romneys financial holdings, which are held in a blind trust that is overseen by a trustee and not known to Romney, this particular investment was among those that would have been known to Romney.
Invisible is sometimes good.
Yep. Santorum broke his bones on Romneycare.
Santorum looks far more passionate tonight.
Juan Carlos - didn’t he and his donkey pick Columbian coffee? Duh, like it wasn’t obvious he’d ask a racist question.
“Which hispanic leaders would you chose to serve in your cabinet?” WTF? How about what does it matter what race/ethnic background they are? How about who is BEST for the job??
Romney lost all his positive points scored earlier. Santorum kicked his ass in that exchange on healthcare. Mit sounded like a liar!
yeah, what the heck that did mean? Not worth getting mad about Rick giving him a smack down? Not worth getting mad about the fact that everyone thinks gov control of healthcare sucks and that romneycare is obamacare 1.0?
I’ll definitely vote on the lower ballot races, even if I don’t vote for Myth.
Yes, I think Santorum killed Romney on the healthcare subject. Romney looked like he was in pain.
maybe that’s why I’m bored to death with this debate like never before
We have huge issues that are being ignored,I don’t know what more to say,its a travesty.
Wolf and Ron Paul bailing out Romney... “They’re all wrong”... then moves away from the discussion of Romney/Obamacare. Mitt’s wingman strikes again!
Santorum was terrific taking down Mittens.
Would Santorum agree to be Speaker Gingrich’s Vice-President?
Sanatorium just kicked Mitt’s ass and handed it to him with a smile. Mitt Romney CANNOT beat Obama because he IS Obama ..as it relates to healthcare ...and more.
Ooooh. a “pander to my special interest group” question.
Romney naming every hispanic he can think of.
Seven dwarfs coming up next.
I’ved hardly heard Newt talk at all tonight.
You are right - Newt did disappear for a while - and it was good he did. look at Romney’s face now... he needs the bell after Santorum smacked him , and Newt deflected Santorum easily.
I love it Newt sits back and enjoys Santorum ripping Mittens a new one ..while Mitt squirms....beautiful!
Now let’s ask who is your favorite black? female? asian? native american?
Now we have the pandering Hispanic question. Why?
Hope that doesn’t backfire on Newt. Florida might want to keep Rubio for themselves.
