Our 12 and 15 yr old sons are still awake so I gotta keep the outloud cussing at a minimum (dammit) Romney’s little smirk is irritating me bigtime and we’re just getting started...

Stacked audience much? I think they would have screamed and whistled if Mitt said, “I’m Mitt Romney, and I just made a poopy.”

Good grief.

Romney can’t keep it short.

Stumble bum Santorum ran over on his first answer. He tried to be pithy with "remedial math" and failed miserably.

I KNEW IT! Romney takes a huge crap on Santorum before he even gets started. He’s trying to repeat the Florida debates.

Did you hear that CNN woman say that if Newt pulls what he did the last time she thinks he will be levelled?

Mitt’s attack on Rick is weak, blaming him on the entire Sinate.

Newt’s tie is pretty purple...is that in honor of the first day of Lent?

Hubby & I said the same thing. I bet he is.

John King doesn't even let everyone answer the first question before he tries to facilitate candidates attacking each other.

Newt is going to have to make his own moments CNN will avoid him the best they can.

For sure.

Newt won SC because he stood up to the DBM in the form of John King,question is will he, can he, do it again?

Today on Hannity, Milt kept (weirdly) saying “whoever the nominee is”. Kinda strange...he said it at least three times.

And John King was caught off guard. You can tell John King practiced how he would react to Newt Gingrich in order to lesson Newt’s effect with the audience.

But he wasn’t expecting Newt to nail in his intro and quickly turned his shocked face into a controlled face which he had rehearsed which resulted in John King’s Prune Face.

Someone needs to get Newt’s opening line on youtube stat. And John Kings reaction.

Not watching but listening only. And clearly RON PAUL got the least amount of opening applause. And MITT ROMNEY clearly ran way with the largest amount of applause. In fact I think he bought out the place, quite frankly.

Here we go. King gives Romney the opening to attack Santorum and he takes it. Now Santorum goes at Romney. King is not giving the other two a chance.

Romney bragging about himself is getting quite boring.

CNN now going after Newt of spending. Gingrich pivots against CNN.

I would love to see a graph (Ala that fella with his “dial a response”)....so show REAL TIME< how much time the candidates are taking to respond....Im guessing Mittens would be off the charts (hence the reason we will never see the aforementioned clock graphs ;-)

I'm listening only too (gave up satellite tv for Lent). Someone will have to tell us if Ron Paul's eyebrow starts heading south!
