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.
After the first few sentences he begins to sound like Charlie Brown's teacher.
Did he serve in Viet Nam.
Is he a tax-attorney?
Did he raise 23 foster kids?
Engaged: Barney Frank, 71, and longtime partner Jim Ready, 42, the congressmans office confirmed for us Thursday, following a report by New England Cable News. Where? In Massachusetts, where gay nuptials were made legal in 2004. When? Sorry, thats all the details theyd give. Frank is set to leave Congress next winter after 32 years, and hes said the rigors of the job and the desire to devote more time to his relationship were factors. I have a partner now, Frank told Charlie Rose in an interview a couple weeks ago. Im in love for the first time in my life. (from Hot Air)
I BELIEVE that Perry was the most conservative of the bunch, and I KNOW that he had the best record of the bunch.
It’s a shame that he was shut out on debate performances.
He had an excellent debate on the eve of suspending his campaign.
There was no forgiveness for Perry for a lousy debate, and no come back for him when he debated well.
Every candidate on the stage tonight has had an evening that was a terrible debate for them, In fact they have all had multiple bad debates.
I think we need a Florida TEA PARTY alert, and maybe send money to the PAC, WINNING THE FUTURE, where hopefully the heavy ammo is buried! LOL! We need some state wide help in Florida. And some NAVY SEALS to go stealth for NEWT. :)
it’s not just brainwashed over moderates
these people are not social conservatives...never have been
Santorum looks at the BIG picture and what is best for the country.
If that was true, he would have endorsed Newt while we still had a chance to beat Romney.
Romney will likely win now.
God, I hope you’re wrong. And for the life of me, I dont’ understand Santorum at ALL. He KNOWS he can’t win. He KNOWS his presence only helps Romney. WHAT is up with this guy??? Does he care about this country AT ALL???
>> “Maybe he meant his profits.” <<
Are you saying that is his true ‘Religion?’
Right. It’s too bad that nowadays you have to be a great debater. Being a great person and a great governor are not enough.
Here in Obamaville it's a little different. Why get a job when Obama will pay my bills with someone Else's money?
If people are smart, they will vote for Newt and Rick can’t win. Vote for Rick will be waste for Conservative movement.
I'm a Rush fan (probably less so today than in the past), and I feel he's still the number one guy when it comes to articulating conservative philosophy. He is the master.
But here's the rub. If one truly believes in the conservative principles how can they say that a moderate (I really think moderate is overly gracious when applied to Mitt) is suddenly okay. This happens, it seems, every election cycle with Rush.
Throughout the year we hear Rush's slams and numerous parodies about McCain, Graham, Snowe, etc., but once the election is near its all about fear and how we have to support the non-democrat.
When Rush went through his "rough patch" (drug use, etc.) we stood by him 100%! We knew the media was using this event to hurt Rush and minimize him, but true conservatives stood by him.
Today, he could have taken a similar position with Newt (certainly as it related to Ronald Reagan and the completely false accusations leveled at Newt), but Rush got cute and danced around it ever so slyly. I wonder if Rush would still be on the air today if his followers had danced the same dance a few years ago.
Okay, at the end of the day, I still like Rush and I won't be able to not listen to him again (I will probably wait until AFTER the Florida vote). I don't pretend to have all of the answers, and I apologize if that sounded like my intention. My grandkids do give me the vision I need to see beyond next week, or even next year, but that's just me.
Unfortunately known of that is getting MSM coverage. Only Elliott Abrams.
problem with your logic is they split the same vote
and hence Romney who runs like Obama simply attacking opponents rather than what he is
and who is polling better lately...Newt
Should Newt step down so a lesser polling Rick can maybe beat Mitt?
were Santorum out...Romney would be dead
You won’t think so when the Chinese set up shop there first. Do you think they’ll abide by some treaty that says “space should be for everyone?”
Another vacuum head Mitt-bot.
He cant see how toxic he would be in a general election.
“Whoa, Santorum just said on Gretas show that theres not much difference between Newt and Romney. Rick, can you use some of the money I donated to you to buy a clue?”
Shameful lying POS...he comes to Pa and says that I’m going to be on national TV and he’s going to have a big broken nose. lol
In jest, but he deserves to have his teeth knocked out.
You are a visionary and great accomplishments come from such folks. I looked into all the massive and wonderous inventions, achievements thanks to space exploration. It is mind boggling. I remember the old tvs with antennas and local channels..we have satellites now. I remember the old cut and stitch surgeries..we have so much done with lasers and scans now from cataracts to kidneys to lungs. It is amazing. One day everyone may look back (after China beats us to it) and say that “Newt was a man ahead of his time”
Something the establishment keeps saying is that Newt as nominee will cause us to lose seats in the house and senate, but I counter that with, if obama wins a second term a republican majority in the house and senate won’t really help us because obama circumvents congress anyway. If obama wins he will probably just become a dictator as was evidenced by his sotu address.
