This wife question is Blitzer giving the other 3 the opportunity to trumpet the length of their marriages versus Newt’s marital situation. It’s not a fluff question.

Wolfie and all these other media types are ALL working for Obama..they love Romney for ONE reason and ONE reason only, he will get his ass kicked if he is the nominee..a shame so many people don’t get it and continue propping him up. Santorum has done great, he totally smacked down Romney it was great..Romney looked like he was going to cry out for his mommy..which is EXACTLY why the left wants him to be the nominee so badly

Rick just grabbed Romney’s Mormon holy underwear, lifted it up, and pulled it all the way over Romney’s head. Now he’s giving him a swirlie.

Ohmygosh, I can't stop laughing!

“I like Newt, but he is getting clobbered tonight”

Bby the standards of what we are conservatives are looking for, you could be right. I remember the W. debates against Gore and the ‘experts’ thought Gore won when Bush did win according to voters. People liked Bush and didn’t like Gore. Some people who don’t follow these things as closely as we do may not be looking at things as we do. Likeability is important. Let’s see...

-- We have huge issues that are being ignored,I don't know what more to say,its a travesty. --

It's CNN, the John King, Wolf Blitzer, "what color is your underwear" network.

Next question is about the prospective first ladies. Stupid question in a national debate. Well, unless the objective is to burn time so the favored candidate can avoid confrontation on substance.

“Here’s what I’ve taken from this debate so far:
ROMNEY DOES NOT THINK OBAMACARE IS WORTH GETTING ANGRY ABOUT!!!”

Best I can figure, Romney is a top-down manager and we the people are his employees, which means we are supposed to do as we are told, or be fired for insubordination. So, if that is the relationship here, and management is doing all this for our own good anyway, why should we get angry about it?

In Mitt's mind, he was getting a point for noticing that Santorum was angry. Backfire, bigtime.

That was the dumbest thing I ever heard anyone say. He is probably praying no-one noticed, but we noticed. Not worth getting mad about? EPIC FAIL.

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

Would support Santorum as VP. They work well together.]

Actually, Gingrich, Santorum and Paul could all work together, but none of them could handle the car salesman.

Romney just underestimated Rick and Romney got angry and got clobbered.

Thank God! It looked like he was going to get through unscathed.

Maybe they should debate whose wife is the best. (Spit)

It occured to me that the money Romney makes somebody else IE blind trust; really makes for him.
Given this fact MITT ROMNEY has never NEVER made on his own but with help of others ! NOW how can anybody explain to me how he would govern without others telling him what to do. Mittens has never had an idea that someone else hasnt put forward first.
