Newt is so great. I will be very disappointed if he is not the nominee. Santorum isn’t ready yet. Newt is doing very well turning things around and not making it personal.

Why does Noot always hold his wrist?

To keep from reaching for a whiteboard marker, I suppose.

I sure wish I could see or hear it -- my connexion is so bad that I can hear a few words and then it freezes. I need you guys to let me know what is happening

And now little Ricky is starting to backpeddle on his Title 20 - another Santorum idea to spend more money and expand government. It’s what he does. Always.

I am very very afraid that Newt doing well will result in a Romney nomination... although I love Newt, I really really don’t want the RINO Romney much more than I want a Newt presidency.

The Dems (and their surrogate CNN) have set a trap to get the Candidates to focus on birth control (instead of the economy) and the candidates have fallen for it.

Sadly it does seem to have an effect on those who pay little to no attention to the process sans a debate here and there. Those folks are primed to react the idea that he who receives all that applause must really really be good and well liked...its a crappy slight of hand and works for the truly ignorant.

In the meantime, I truly wish they would start discussing the REAL issues facing our survival..

Is this debate being held on the campus of Brigham Young University in Utah? Wow. Crowd reaction is stunning for Mitt.

Almost...Mitt and Ricky were afraid to have a debate in Georgia.

Santorum has a way about him that doesn’t come across well. I get uncomfortable just watching him.

You're not alone. He's like a teacher's pet turned class snitch and the audience is beginning to see through him with their boos.

You and I agree with his position but it’s not going to play well in the general. You can’t legislate morality. Even Paul made Santo look bad on that one.

I like how Santorum puffs himself as this ‘man of principle’, but then exhorts that people should “look at what I say, not what I actually do.”

Paul going after Santo - It’s always an excuse.

Mittens gangs up with Paul - you voted [Santo] for Title 10.

Well, all should be happy then when Romney's the nominee because that's what this is going to boil down to. Newt will pick up enough support in the next two races to stop Santorum and Mitt will beat both. Yippee!
