——The problem now is that, barring some catastrophe, none of the men on that stage can beat Obama——

We’ll win in a landslide. Don’t be down. Obama’s economy is worse than Carter’s.

The focus will be on the economy in the general.

Actually, I apologize, Rand Paul reportedly said he would be proud to serve under Romney as VP.

It wouldn’t make me any more likely to vote for Romney. No amount of smear ads, no endorsements, no VP could ever convince me to open for an open socialist.

“Romney hates Georgia and Georgia hates Romney.”

It SO pi$$es me off that the others joined him in turning down the GA debate.

God bless warrior Newt - there’s a lot of might and power working against him from many sides. A Georgia debate would’ve really boosted him, and they’re all joining together to marginalize him as much as possible.

But, that should not prevent our candidates from speaking up. Newt did several times. He got right to the heart of what we were all thinking. That's why we support Newt so much. He is us!

Newt Gingrich is the best political strategist in the country. He knows our Nation from A - Z. While the liberal media will go after him once he is President, they will RESPECT him.

They know with Newt that would be the first post-modern authentic Founding Founders’ type of President who would be willing stand on our Nation’s foundation.

Newt is the sliver-haired George Washington and should be our next President of the United States.

Go NEWT!

Santorum agreeing with Romney. Nothing of his own to contribute, just talking a whole lot about very little of his own original content.

Romney trying to dominate the floor again, Santorum following his lead, getting low levels of approval from the audience.

Maybe they are starting to wonder, what ever was it that they saw in Santorum in the first place?

Congressman Paul has shown a very serious defect in his understanding of the meaning of national defense. He thinks to defend your nation is to seek war for its own sake.
