Ha ha, what a train wreck of a party. I can't take any one of them seriously.

The GOP had it made, Obama's had a bumpy first term and everyone is distrusting of the system; this should have been a breeze. But this is the bunch they gave us? This is your party? What a joke...

No kidding. If I were a Republican voter, I'd be deeply embarrassed that this is the best they could find.

As for that link of Santorum quotes...wow. He's even more of a dipshit than I realized. Comparing gay marriage to this:

Quote:
“This is an issue just like 9/11. We didn't decide we wanted to fight the war on terrorism because we wanted to. It was brought to us.
...what? No, seriously...WHAT?

Shut the hell up, Santorum.

ABC will have a debate on in 3 hours and then there will be one tomorrow on Mitt the Press

It will be interesting to see how desperate and nasty Gingrich will go.

and if Gingrich, Paul and Santorum will try and take each other out to be the surviving not-Romney candidate.

That's what NO v Detroit is for.

Mitt the Press? Is he the new host?

Good weather predicted so far for Tuesday so that shouldn't be a problem for turnout. It was almost 60 today

That's what I don't get- why they would all go after Romney rather than each other. I don't think most of Romney's support is going anywhere at this point.

A couple new polls in NH show Romney about 30 points ahead of Gingrich, Huntsman and Santorum (Paul does better, low 20s, but I'm not counting him). If he wins there by 25-30, he gets serious momentum into SC where- don't look now- he's leading in the two most recent polls.

Should things get ugly, at least Mitt's catching a break with the likely low ratings of these debates.

i'm thinking Mittens pretty much has this sewn up.

i'm quite curious to see just how nuclear Noot actually goes, and, since he was destroyed over the course of a mere 2-3 days by the establishment, if he's given some order of silence before long so as not to further damage the inevitable nominee.

Paul blasts Gingrich for skipping military

By Peter Schroeder - 01/07/12 09:36 PM ET

Rep. Ron Paul (Texas) jabbed at Newt Gingrich during Saturday night's Republican presidential debate for not serving in the military while advocating for foreign intervention as a candidate.
Paul had previously called Gingrich a "chickenhawk" for avoiding military service in his younger years, and did not back off from that line of attack during an ABC News/Yahoo! debate in New Hampshire.

"I'm trying to stop these wars, but at least I went when called," he told Gingrich.

The former House Speaker fired back in a seething response, accusing Paul of having "a long history of saying things that are inaccurate and false...I personally resent the kind of comments and aspersions he typically makes."
He went on to say that his father was a long-time member of the military with multiple tours of duty, adding, "I have a pretty good idea of what it's like in a family to worry."

He maintained that he never asked for a deferment, but did not serve because he was married and had a child. Paul rebutted by saying he served in the military while married and with two children.

Paul's call for little to no foreign intervention by America's military separates him from most of the GOP field, but the man who served in the Air Force said candidates with no military experience have "no right to send our kids off to war."

"I have a pet peeve that annoys me to a great deal because when I see these young men coming back, my heart weeps for them," he said.
Newt deserves to be called out on his draft-dodging.

Paul and Romney: A
Gingrich and Perry: B
Santorum: High C
Huntsman: Low C

Romney really wasn't attacked that much, and when he was he responded adequately. More than all the others he focused on President Obama.

Kind of disappointed in some of the content. Too much time spent on Ron Paul's newletters, contraception, infrastructure, other minor things.

I haven't really watched it, have it on the dvr, in case there was a major shake up that I would want to see in real time and context.

Aside from Faux News, who was questioning his experience, or lack thereof? Nobody. So we get the least qualified candidate for the job...ever...in the most perilous of economic times.

Maybe they were out there, and these videos just didn't pop up. Or maybe they did and my memory is a bit foggy. Whatever.

I will take Obama anyday on social issues; but economically this country is not better today than it was 4 years ago. That is the reason he's losing the youthful demographic to Ron Paul. Thats 76 year old Ron Paul too, btw. Old enough to be a grandpa to his most ardent supporters, he's their Chuck Norris. Now if they can all just get hired on as Texas Rangers....then MISSON ACCOMPLISHED.

I watched the college basketball championship instead of the debate. Sounds like Newt was jealous!
