LIVE DEBATE THREAD (Is it too early to start?)
Of the four, Rick is the one with the least national experience, even though he was a Senator. Paul & Romney ran for POTUS before, and Gingrich was a national figure decades ago, and 2nd (?) in line to the Presidency.
You KNOW it’s real.
Santorum completely bombed tonight.
I had high hopes for him but he’s blown it.
I can only hope for a Newt resurgence at this point, or we get stuck with Romney and lose in November.
oopps.. I take back what I said about Donna Brazil, she just said she agreed with Ron Paul on foreign policy.
It’s a great thing to see folks coming around to Newt...they get it and aren’t about to hand this Presidency over to anyone but ‘the best man’ to do the job.
Go Newt Go! and Hurrah for those who are bringing their vote to Newt!!!
Newt won. No question about it!
2nd plastic man Romney
3rd Paul just because he was funny
Funniest moment was when Paul was asked why he called Rick fake and he said “Because he is”.
Paul once again proved he’s got some good ideas but that he’s crazier than a bed bug and he would just mean more years of sleepless nights, same as the last 3 years.
I can’t tell if mittens reminds me more of Barbie’s plastic Ken boyfriend, Barry II or a Robot.
Santorum is insipid and his voting record speaks for itself plus he’s wayyyyyyyyyyy too timid to go after Barry the Marxist, so is mittens. They go after him, but they don’t hit below the belt. Newt is the only one with enough cajones to do that.
How did the left go after the wonderful Sarah Palin? They didn’t attack her politics, they did a character ass assination and to defeat Barry Barack Hussein Soetoro Obama, that is what the GOP has to do and they have to figure out how to do it since they will get no help from the media. A rally road to travel.
The dynamic is that Mitt throws mud, because that’s all he can do (he certainly can’t run on his record), the recipient has to fight back, and then BOTH parties look like pigs in mud. And that’s how a squeaky clean Santorum was able to rise to the top.
But now Mitt is slapping some mud at Santorum, making both Mitt & Ricky look like pigs. And Newt, looking clean again, plays the elder statesman and performs performs 3rd comeback :-)
Ya know, you don’t see Santorum supporters smearing and tearing down Newt.
The one we should really be against in this process is Romney, the RINO in the race. Just saying’.
Why can’t you just cheer for your candidate instead of smearing the other conservative in the race?
I support Newt, and I agree with you.
why> Because Rick is strong on Social issues? He is a buffoon on anything else!! Other than talking points that is, most of which he has stolen from Newt!
Newt is all of the above! Take you head out of the sand!! Rick is an empty GOP-E suit!
Santorum spoke at Whitney Houstons funeral too? /s
I would agree with that.
She’s a lib thru and thru, but she has an honest streak.
Perhaps he told them to pi$$ up a rope. I would have.
Gingrich can take this. Gasoline is not covered by the Food Stamp President. If it costs me 125 bucks to fill up my truck I am mowing my own damn lawn.
I always thought center was reserved for those highest in polls?
If Ron Paul can take him out, Obama will also.
A silly twinkle toes poll from Sludge. LoL.
