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.
YEah you are right.I guess I still am a bit naive in my old age.
I am going to disagree with those who believe that Rick blew it with his closing. His saying he is better than the others wasn’t a bad thing, since he really kept that rather low key and simply said I’m better because “ of these things “
Newt gave an excellent answer. I do everything to create a better America for my children. We all do...it as American as apple pie. I loved it.
Dick Morris on Greta saying Mittens won debate tonight. IMO, a draw maybe.
The stacked audience is slanting everyone’s view.
Romney has never received so much applause.
The Paulistinians are all over it as usual...
Romney's new coach clearly helped him out. I think Romney closes the deal on FL, particularly with Santorum still running.
I hope you’re right, but the latest polls show Romney winning Florida. I’m really worried.
I would post LOL, but Hon, you take the cake, and yes, Dear, it is me. Luv Ya!
Voted AGAINST increasing the number of immigration investigators:
VOTED AGAINST HIRING AN ADDITIONAL 1,000 BORDER PATROL AGENTS, paid for by reductions in state grants.
VOTED TO GIVE SOCIAL SECURITY BENEFITS TO ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS
Voted to allow illegal immigrants to receive the earned income credit before becoming citizens.
SANTORUM: Trim Social Security now- even if painful.
VOTED AGAINST FOOD STAMP REFORM
VOTED AGAINST MEDICAID REFORM
Voted to increase the social services block grant from $1 BILLION to $2 BILLION
VOTED TO RAID SOCIAL SECURITY instead of using surpluses to pay down the debt.
Voted to impose a uniform federal tax mandate on states to force them to allow convicted , rapists, arsonists drug kingpins and all other ex-convicts to vote in federal elections.
Santorum; Big government spender:
Santorum needs to put his ego aside, place his country before himself and drop out.
Santorum's people and supporters will use tongihts base as energizing him all the more...I don't think he's about to step out of the ring any time soon..and yes it will take votes from Newt...Paul too will remain....neither doing us any good now as Newt needs to pick up supporters going forward.
If Santorum is a "selfish" about this run as some say and doesn't stand down because he wants the limelight....then I will surely blame SAntorum if Romney gets it.
Agree. (but are we allowed to say that here?)
Seeing Rick next to his mom I can see where he got his nose from.
The question is, would you buy a used car from Mitt Romney?
I agree. Santorum probably takes 3rd. Second would be wonderful, but he probably does take 3rd. However, we move onto proportional delegate states from here.
As I said as soon as he opened his mouth he was the statesmen earlier saying we shouldn't attack each other and then closes with just that. And now he's talking about winning in Nevada??
Agreed. But, the media will make Romney the hero and Newt the loser.
When has Dick Morris been right about anything? ever?
Wow those really are magical
The sort of relief that comes from knowing your fate, even if that means knowing you are out of a race.
Don’t bother. Fraud Paul wins every fraud poll. He has the hacker collectives on his team.
