The plan is for Romney to be the nominee so that Obama can get a second term.

That's what I've been convinced of all along.

Mrs. Romney looks awfully good for having beaten not one but two serious conditions. She is a beautiful lady.
God bless her!

I don’t have any doubt....this was all set up by CNN. Pro Romney all the way.

We should have known this especially if we were watching the pre debate show.

Don’t worry, Newt will win Florida!

I am in Central Florida and I am not sure I am in Mount Dora where Newt started his day today. I hope you are right though.

What’s the deal about making Puerto Rico a state?...I’m not interested when their speaker tonight says they are treated like second class citizens. Don;t play the victum card with me! She really turned me off.

This entire non-debate has been a Romney-CNN show, for the single purpose of killing and getting even with Newt.

I guess we will know if they were successful on election day.

Yes Newt did knock it out of the park. Loved the move the embassy to Jerusalem comment. Pet peeve that reporters always say ‘we are here in the capital Tel Aviv”.

Santorum just nailed the PR question. He obviously knows the issues involved and wisely steered clear of stating what he favored in terms of the results of a referendum. Well done.

Ron Paul - humorous & almost charming tonight - he’s a funny little guy sometimes.

Frankly I have to agree much to my surprise.

He’s disgusted me to no end. I for one am finding it hard to distinguish any credible answers from his personal attacks on Gingrich. It’s time to stop eating each other and to GO AFTER OBAMA!

Mitt would be a weak mess as President, just as he was a weak governor. He stacked the audience with his shills....no correlation to his sparse crowds out on the stump.

This debate reeks of corruption. The audience is stacked, the questions are stacked, and Romney the plastic man has been the beneficiary.

I’m convinced that Romney has prepared for this debate down to the inflections in his voice. He speaks differently tonight than he has in the past.

Gingrich seems to begin a lot of his answers with, "I agree with Governor Romney ..."

That's not helping him.

Reagan was twenty years ago. The world has changed tremendously in those two decades. 90’s solutions would not work today.

HUH? The solution of limited government and free markets is timeless. Government at all levels has grown tremendously since the mid 80's.

Please provide a example of a problem that exist today that that would require solutions that did not exist in the 80s or 90s. Thank you.
