LIVE DEBATE THREAD (Is it too early to start?)
I really hope he can pull this off. The Obama camp does not want him dogging his every step for 26 weeks.
Most people will rememmber what a candidate said that swayed them to support that candidate. Debates show a clear contrast that is better than super pacs or smears outside ...this is a IN person chance to rectify or clarify what your convictions and record entail. So far tonight..RS has been very weak
Paul just spanked Santorum hard. That was beautiful.
I’d like to see Bolton back as Embassador to the UN.
Again, just to piss them the hell off.
Newt won this one BY FAR. Every answer he gave was definitive, adult and intelligent.
Ron Paul is a disgrace and doesn’t deserve to be rated as anything other than fruitcake.
Santorum reminded people why they don’t like him.
Romney has a nice suit. Hmmm. No. Make that Romney IS a nice suit.
.... did the CNN moderator just say this may be the final Republican debate?! Huh?
Paul did great on education and then nailed establishment. Our oath is not to a party. It’s to uphold the Constitution.
I agree with you but he’s a patriot through and through with a lot of knowledge. He’d do the right thing...and fight for it if necessary.
That is my dream team too. Brilliant!
Newt is hitting the park out of the ball every time!
Most of what he says is logical. The exception is the topic of national defense and policy on Israel.
What is CNN up to?
They are messing with background graphics sometimes when Newt speaks?
Did anyone notice what they did with the background graphics when Newt was hitting another home run on his question about teachers? It looked like it wasn’t live and it was fuzzy background, if that’s the right terminology when Newt was just speaking.
And then it turned back to looking like a live shot. CNN is SHADY.
Good! Take those delegates from Romney and totally reject him.
Have you followed any of the Santorum threads lately? They are no different. It’s getting really old.
The audience is correct: Romney gave the best answers and will be the best candidate.
It’s ALL about BEATING OBAMA, folks.
Some people may wish to stroke the sweater.
—>Man, if only his Newt had shown up for the FL debates! Newt is by far the best candidate. It is no contest.
—>This debate gave me a headache.
—>Paul is Romney’s attack dog tonight.
—>I wish King would ask Rick/Mitt/Paul why they backed out od the OH/GA debate.
OMG Carnegie units
Andrew and his pals would be so proud.
Can’t stand Paul, but he has been smacking down Santorum all night long. The “play along to get along” was a bute. And that id Rick all over.
Yep. No Santorum’s best debate. But how is it that anyone can give Obamacare away when going up against Obama? It just can’t be done. And of the three, only one doesn’t give that issue away. And there’s no way to slice it, dice it, mince it, sautee it or fry it. It all equals individual mandate.
