Immigration questions ALL night

Unless they self-deported.

If the topic of Reagan comes up hit him with this Newt. While running for senator in 1994 you said,

Do you still fell the same Governor Romney?

Personally, I’m sick of the Romney/Gingrich war and hope that Santorum emerges and will be the last man standing.

I would love that.

Go Rick!

Hello everyone. After what has occurred the last couple days with Mitt’s PACs, I hope he comes in dead last. Right now, I am more likely to vote for RPaul in the primary than for Romney.

This could be a really key debate. If Newt loses here,it could be the end.If he wins could make all the difference.
So far Woof Woof is letting the audience take part. If he shuts them off you know the fix is in for Romney.

Worth posting again, I think. Gingrich needs to go after these charges and those who are perpetrating them if they're not true.

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 from the REAL problem: Obama and the Dems.

Incredibly, the debate began with Romney’s paid,
imported crowd, booing Speaker Gingrich and Santorum.

Debate partners are said to be Hispanic Leadership Network
making up questions with CNN.

Wolf Blitzer is thrilled to be there.
Santorum, too. His card: his mother.
Newt is visting from Georgia, who says Florida
will be the site of the next carrier group
Bishop Romney is all about himself and his family.
Ron Paul, defines himself from the get go.
