Santorums barb should have been strictly aimed at Romney, not both. Newt has the right to defend himself.

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).

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.

Why does Romney get to talk so much more than Newt?

Because he speaks m o r e s l o w l y, t h a t' s w h y!

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.

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.

Romney is what they would call in MBA school,.. an “air hog”..... He hogs the time and drones on.... Then he gasps for air when he gets cornered.

hahahahah! Sooooo right! Good one!

If Santorum had bean like this from the start, might have been different right now.

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?

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 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!

MYTH FLIP SLICK WILLARD ROMNEY got 31% in FL last time and has no where to go but down.

CLOSED primary means that PISSED OFF AT DC REPUBLICANS will be the only ones casting ballots in 5 days.

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.
