Any theories as to why the GOP-E decided to attack before the debate? All I can come up with is that they want Newt to lose his cool.

I think he’s too smart to fall for that.

The Paul bots are on CNN pundits out front to the point where they are drowned out! Perhaps Newt supporters also. DON’T BELIEVE THE LIBERAL MEDIA signs are floating behind Erin, and the panel. It is delicious.

Newt does need to take off the gloves tonight. He needs to show more fire in the belly than Monday night. Hopefully the audience will be permitted to show some energy he can feed off of.

Newt needs to clear up Mitts attacks.

Agreed. The Cain method of, "Just go to my website" doesn't work. The American people don't know all the ins and outs of this stuff and deserve a straightforward, hard-hitting, no-nonsense answer from Gingrich on these charges. Whether they're false or not, the American people deserve a clear, concise answer on WHY they're false, what the truth is, and then (if they're false) a sharp rebuke on the perpetrator(s) and a reiteration on the media's attempts to move the debate away form the REAL problem: Obama and the Dems.

Glad you’re here. Sorry you have a broken part and have to take pills.

But, I have more bad news.

I take 12 pills in the morning and 13 six hours later. As well as insulin. But that isn’t the bad news.

On most of my pill containers, the warning says to “avoid alcohol”. THAT is the bad news.

But, I have a system. I take my morning pills early. That means I can take my afternoon pills early, then 6 hours later.... I can have a couple of drinks. ;>)

Well, the system is risky, but it works for me. ;>)

I am also restricted to healthy foods.... I find it mostly boring. I occasionally cheat and after you have cheated a few times, the guilt feelings go away. LOL

When my doctor gives me a sermon about the consequences of my occasional cheats, I simply remind him that I ride a Harley.... it makes him shake his head and laugh.

Be well...... laugh and stay young.

I understand that Mitt is running anti-Newt ads non-stop in Florida, so I’m not surprised Newt’s numbers are down.

I hope he is able to get his message out tonight.

“Newt has GOT to have the debate of his life tonight.”

AGREED...
This is for all the marbles. Especially after the Monday Night Disaster.

I was listening to a few different Florida talk stations today, and the commercials were running 90-10 against Newt, with the newsbreaks ganging the “NEWT LOSES TO OBAMA!” meme all day long.

Every half hour. Over and over again.

Twitter is running 98% or more negative Gingrich, and some of the Anti-Newt stuff I’ve seen on YouTube in the last couple of days would make a Prostitute blush.

AND THIS IS BUT A TASTE of the negative media flood we will be facing this fall. It doesn’t matter WHO the Nominee is, they will be painted as the most evil creature to have ever walked the Earth.

And many sheeple will swallow whatever the Magic Talking Box they stare at every night tells them.

Either stay home or vote Paul - that’s what a lot of folks around here are doing since he has no shot at the nomination anyway. Might be some interesting results when the votes are counted in VA.

If Newt doesn’t win, I’ll commit suicide by eating bad fat.

Both Mitt and Newt will either do fine or survive tonight’s debate. Not sure about Rick and Ron, though.

I will not vote for Romney. If Obama get re-elected because of that, then so be it. I will register as Independent and no more GOP. They are teetering on “dead to me” status as it is.

I figure you are probably right...they want Newt to lose his cool. The all out attack today was like nothing ever seen before. It is pitiful the way the Republicans will destroy each other, but tiptoe around BO and the Dims.

What I use is a can of V-8, a teaspoon of Wooster Sauce, dash of celery salt, couple drops of Tabasco sauce . Supposed to be shaken in ice if you can but stirring it up good does it in a pinch. Oh, edge the glass with kosher salt when nobody’s looking.
