Mitt prepared for New’s attacks, but forgot about Santorum.

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.

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.

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.

Another lie from Mitt: Romney's Fannie and Freddie Investments Not Blind Trusts:

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 Romney’s 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.

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.
