Skip to comments.Live Thread: Republican Presidential Debate in Jacksonville, FL on CNN 8 P.M. EST
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.
Santorums barb should have been strictly aimed at Romney, not both. Newt has the right to defend himself.
Even someone who is certifiably insane gets one right every now and again.
Santorum is winning this HANDS DOWN. (going by audio) “Hey you two guys, knock it off!!” (the crowd goes wild—oddly as they did with Ron Paul on some points). Quit being manipulated and jacked around by COMMUNIST CNN (who wants the Messiah reelected), get on the issues and substance, and turn political fire tonight on Obama (rhetorically speaking here of course).
Santorum to the rescue, let’s stop the inside the beltway debate and get back to real issues
Why is mittens allowed to attack Newt for as long as he wants and Newt gets 30 seconds to respond...this time is completely unfair
I wish Rick Santorum would win FL. Like Sarah said, keep it going, give Rick a shot. I’m so sick of the other stuff.
Because he speaks m o r e s l o w l y, t h a t' s w h y!
Santorum on fire tonight! Santorum/Gingrich or Gingrich/Santorum.
It’s easy to look good when no one is attacking you.
If Santorum had that much fight into him all the time he would be a contenda!
Ron Paul always, always sounds like he is whining. We have one whiner in the WH now. Most of all I want our country to be safe and led by someone who, when he speaks, commands respect and makes our enemies shake in their boots and think twice about any plans to harm us. I think they would just send Ron Paul a box of kleenex and ask him for a thank you card.
Santorum is the star in this one so far!
Ok Santorum hit that one out of the park. Gotta hand it too him on that one.
I hope they get into better topics. They haven’t discussed jack so far. Romney hit attacks are everywhere. He must be spending a bundle.His methods are so much like the left its scary.
Rick’s having a good night. We definitely have to get away from this petty sniping that Romney introduced into the primaries. I guess his puppet-masters forgot to tell him about that last ad they stamped his mug on.
hahahahah! Sooooo right! Good one!
Is Newt gone into his prevent defense (advisers telling him to be careful not to say anything that might lose votes) instead of coming out fired up with a full court press?
Newt spending all his time on the defense....
He wuz a nOOb, a fag and an idiot.
Calling Newt a liar out of the gate cause a search through his history and that’s about it took, I guess.
I have to agree...no question in my mind - even as a big Newt supporter - Santorum looks GREAT tonight.
Agree. Santorum was exactly correct
Santorum is the best man on that stage.
Ron Paul’s answer on Fan & Fred was as good as anything I’ve heard from him in this campaign.
Newt and Mitt are doing irreversible damage to each other.
I wanted Newt to bring up Molinari and Talent being lobbyists for Fannie and Freddie and Romney using them in his attack ad!
The fix is in...if Romney is the “nominee”, I will be writing in ‘Palin’ on my ballot. My conscience will be clean...
I refuse to vote for Romney. Will vote on state issues and candidates but never Romney. This man is NO conservative. He is the least conservative candidate on that stage..he voted for Jimmy Carter and Paul Tsongas. He brought socialized medicine to the US. HE is running on the wrong ticket!
Wolfie is baiting, again.
He’s poison and he’s striking!
Newt Gingrich has to take him down!
There you go newt. THAT’s IT
Me too. I've been a good soldier.... Bush, Dole, Bush, McCain. I just don't have a "Romney" in me.
Apparently Wolf didn’t listen to what Santorum just said. Wonder that Newt is holding his feet to the fire.
Wolfe is trying hard to get them at each others throats.
CLOSED primary means that PISSED OFF AT DC REPUBLICANS will be the only ones casting ballots in 5 days.
EFF off Wolf!!!
Romney is such an a**hole!!!
Oops meant to say wonderful that Newt is holding his feet to the fire.
To hell with Mitt and Wolf.
Mittens is SOOOOOOOOOO blind.
ROMNEY IS A SOB!
Romney just teams up with Wolf Blitzer against Newt.
Oh no...come on what’s the matter with Newt tonight...are they getting did they get to him with all the battering prior?
LOL!!! Good shot Newt!!
Mitt screwed up. Should have let it drop.
Romney continues to beat Newt....Romney, I am innocent by-stander, I don't make my own investments...
I'm hoping that is a rhetorical question, because if you don't know the answer, you're going to be very troubled when you hear it.
Newt to Blitzer “this is a nonsense question”. Blitzer defending Romney.
I detest Romney and Blitzer. This debate is so fixed for Mittens.
Newt tried properly to get to issues. I have to admit that Mitt did a great job of getting off the issues.
Newt is handing Mitt softball questions. WHF?
This is brutal. Newt is getting torn apart. If it continues much longer, I’m switching this off.
