Glad to hear I am not alone on that feeling

Yes - M itt sounded like a liar on the healthcare issue after Santorum got done with him. RPaul made first real bad comment tonight I heard him make with his “I think they are both wrong and need gov’t smaller”... Santorum IS advocating much smaller.

Pull the other leg, it's playing jingle bells.

Means the Communist Party of the the United States of America (CPUSA) has been calling the shots on space policy for way too long.

Pity that Gingrich doesn’t mention any of that, but it’s better than nothing.

Whitey on the Moon

A rat done bit my sister Nell.
(with Whitey on the moon)
Her face and arms began to swell.
(and Whitey’s on the moon)
I can’t pay no doctor bill.
(but Whitey’s on the moon)
Ten years from now I’ll be payin’ still.
(while Whitey’s on the moon)
The man jus’ upped my rent las’ night.
(’cause Whitey’s on the moon)
No hot water, no toilets, no lights.
(but Whitey’s on the moon)
I wonder why he’s uppi’ me?
(’cause Whitey’s on the moon?)
I wuz already payin’ ‘im fifty a week.
(with Whitey on the moon)
Taxes takin’ my whole damn check,
Junkies makin’ me a nervous wreck,
The price of food is goin’ up,
An’ as if all that shit wuzn’t enough:
A rat done bit my sister Nell.
(with Whitey on the moon)
Her face an’ arm began to swell.
(but Whitey’s on the moon)
Was all that money I made las’ year
(for Whitey on the moon?)
How come there ain’t no money here?
(Hmm! Whitey’s on the moon)
Y’know I jus’ ‘bout had my fill
(of Whitey on the moon)
I think I’ll sen’ these doctor bills,

““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??”

That’s a concept unknown to liberals, and those who have been brainwashed by them (witness our current pathetic excuse for a President, for example).

Now we have the pandering Hispanic question.

Ron Paul sounds like a Johnny one note. The question had nothing to do with war.

Agree with you Rod. The candidates are being baited to fight one another and the major challenges facing this nation are being ignored along with the Obama policies that are destroying the country.

Who gives a damn who will be the best first lady? This is reality show television.

NEWT is winning this Debate. Santorum is his wing man.

Would support Santorum as VP. They work well together.

But, NEWT has won this Debate and is the LEADER on stage. RS is the wingman and he’s doing a good job as a wingman and maybe could be the VP or the so many other positions.

Newt/ Santorum

Agreed - if Santorum had said “it IS worth getting angry about, and not only that, I am SCARED for my country because of this issue” he would have completed the coup.

Wolfie’s assignment tonight was to savage Gingrich and to make sure no one lays a glove on Mittens. He obviously was unprepared for Santorum to come on like that. LOL!

You know Wolfie’s getting worried whenever he says, “Let’s move on.”

Santorum is like one of those guys in a Coen brothers movie such as Blood Simple Oh Brother Where Art Thou, they come up crawling out of the earth. Ricky helped himself tonight.

The question is who did he take more votes away from the Newster or Mittens?

Coming up “Why would your wife make a good first lady”?

Coming up “Why would your wife make a good first ladies”?

There I corrected it for you. There's a mormon among the group.

-- yeah, what the heck that did mean? Not worth getting mad about Rick giving him a smack down? --

In Mitt's mind, he was getting a point for noticing that Santorum was angry. Backfire, bigtime. Mandate to buy insurance, and the quality of health care are damn well worth getting angry over, and Mitt basically said the issue was unimportant.

Seriously, Wolf? We’re coming back to ask which wife would make the best first lady? Are there no real issues facing this country?

CNN = EPIC FAIL

Blitz, you pandering leftist whore.

This isn't a "debate" it's a "debase" aimed at any republican, just as Newt told King. What a total fetid waste. This isn't a presidential debate, it's cnn's latest gut punch. Total bullshit.

My evaluation of the debates:

Santorum - Opportunistic weasel.
Mitt - Slimy and hypocritical, but well prepared.
Newt - Definitely off his game and taking a beating.
Paul - Well, Paul is Paul.
