Posted on 01/26/2012 3:56:03 PM PST by kristinn
Hosted by Wolf Blitzer at the University of North Florida in Jacksonville. Candidates: Newt Gingrich, Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum and Ron Paul.
Word is the audience will be "allowed" to participate.
“To me he is the best of a rather mediocre lot, and that’s about it.”
I agree. He’s a great thinker, but wildly unreliable. Of course, compared to the Boy Scout, the CEO of snail-oil inc. and the blathering old man... he’s the best of a bad lot.
Thanks again, Sarah. This is YOUR FAULT.
I think Newt did alright. I think Romney came off looking like a complete jerk. And I think Santorum completely destroyed him. Santorum may have won this for newt tonight. Even a blind man could see that Romney is a slimeball.
Send magic underwear
Amen. What an answer! Not to diminish Newt’s answer in the least, but Santorum drew a line the sand and made it clear that he understands without a doubt that government doesn’t grant us rights, God does. Wow!
Santorum has been very impressive tonight.
Santorum is able to coast because NO ONE is gunning for him tonight. If he were getting slammed, he’d tense right up and be a wooden candidate.
OMG you owe me a keyboard.
If you want to SUPPORT ROMNEY, get the heck off of FR.
Santorum ver good tonight. Strong on South America and minimum whine in his voice. A fine man.
Newt and Rick are both good tonight. Good response on the Religions faith issue, Newt was better.
Well done Mr. Santorum!!!
“Mitt had his best debate tonight. Hell make a fine President. Sorry...”
“Sorry” sums up that blurb.
He has michele bachmann’s debate coach.
[Mitt had his best debate tonight. Hell make a fine President. Sorry...]
Romney will NEVER be President. Obama will beat him in a landslide!
Romney is evidently very good at memorizing a script ... same canned campaign speech/points all the time.
Absolutely sick. I love it.
Santorum just fundamentally (pun intended) explained conservatism. We believe in GOD GIVEN rights . NOT state given rights “what government gives to you, it can also take away.”
Finally, in the FINAL question, a question about beating Obama. Sheesh.
Oh wow, color me embarrassed. Her accent was so thick I thought she said - I am a Puerto Rican and I like cunnilingus.
Viva Poerto Rico, the 51st State.
LOL!!! That’s great!
He'd have to get permission from his "Trusteee."
He may consult his pocket change.
Santorum has shown more passion tonight. I think his best debate in a while.
That was hilarious!
Yep. I smell ozone.
Rick is having his best night ever, but you are 100% correct.
______________________________________ No fan of Myth, but I agree. He really seemed to show real passion concerning the Jewish State and people.
As much as it hurts to admit this, being a fierce Romney critic, I also feel compelled to give credit where credit is due - on this point.
Romney says I am best qualified because some weirdo named Matt Drudge endorsed me.
Honey....is that you? ;-)
I don’t understand your animosity towards Rick Santorum.
How will you feel when Newt chooses him as a running mate?
“Agree but the take away line was the one by Newt.”
You got that right!
I already early voted for Newt yesterday. I remain confident.
Best quote of thread.
I don’t see anyone being the beneficiary of this worthless debate . Including me , the viewer .
If Romney or Obama is not the next president I will be a lot more hopeful.
My guess would be water. He seems to get hoarse easily.
When nature calls, it must be answered!
Mitt sum up stump speech, total failure.
Romney didn’t understand the final question.
...or couldn’t answer it.
Newt looks like he wants to punch Mittens.
Say what you will about Ron Paul, he does answer questions honestly.
OH MY !!!
Let's see if the Puerto Ricans want to start paying income taxes.
Exactly, great answers. Home run answers.
Paul gave nearly secular view religion shouldn't effect how one thinks.
Mittens was condescending, and gave the juke box robotic press religion button question.
I’ll support Newt if he’s the nominee. I’d even vote for him in the primary. Again, anybody but Obama. Obama is pursuing and working for policies I consider inimical to the best interest of us all. Anybody but Obama!
omg!!!! him and that private sector answer !!! God
I’ve got Newt’s answer how he would beat Obama. Lets see him say it.
Mitten’s but you’re the Establishment candidate. You’re status quo.
An outsider is not going to change washington. No way. This is the big leagues and Romney isn’t.
