I thought i'd start a live thread for tonights debate since no one else had yet.

Let play a debate drinking game!

Everytime Romney says "America" or Paul says "federal reserve" (or Santorm whines about anything) you drink, and if Romney says "shinning city on the hill" or Gingrich gets the audience to give a standing ovation you have to guzzle the whole can

It’s Bruian Williams tonight, with Tampa Bay Times’s political reporter Adam Smith and the National Journal’s Beth Reinhard.

Huffpo and DKos are crying that NBC isn’t being “Diverse Enough” in it’s inquisitors. No black liberals, no lesbian ‘Reporters”

IMHO, Mitt Romney is a ship adrift at sea without a rudder!!! whoever advises him todirectly continue his attacks on Newt Gingrich, does him no favors whatsoever. the person that romney shoud be torching verbally is none other then america hater and would be America destroyer, POTUS Barack Hussein “Muslim Brotherhood Lover” Obama!!!

Words of attack against Newt or other pubbie potential nominees are an absolute waste of time!!! Mitt is going to jump off the diving board into an empty pool, if he listens to his team around him!!! Moderation in defense of freedom, liberty, opportunity and the defeat of Obama/the Democrat Party is a fool’s path!!! Romney should be ripping out the political heart of un-American Obama at every opportunity!!! If he does not, Romney is going down, with a simple flush of the toilet. What a moron!!!

I have been telling everybody I know to go to the website or to Newt’s Facebook page and donate. I have done it several times, and I hope I’m so revved up tonight that I donate again.

It doesn’t have to be much - although naturally, if you can give a lot, I’m sure it wouldn’t be refused! But every little bit helps.

This debate has me worried. I can see them lobbing weak questions for Newt and some rehearsed zingers for Romney. The media wants revenge and Romney and the GOP wants Newt muzzled.

Oh, puhleeze. Brian Williams' fake tan qualifies him to be an honorary negro, and I think he cross dresses, which qualifies him to be a closet lesbian too.

Funny moment from last week’s debate- Little Ricky: “I do m’own taxes, and they’re on my computer, and nobody’s home to get ‘em...” Duh. Give it up Rick.

I think he will. In fact, I think the moderator will bring up all the attacks on Newt and let Mitty and Ricky fire away at him all night long! Issues that voters care about will not even be dis ussed. Tonight is going to be an orchestrated ambush of Newt. Hope he is ready for it!

I’m to nervous to watch so I’ll probably just check back here for feedback.

We don’t get NBC on Time/Warner here.
(Time/Warner had a dispute with the local NBC station and they dropped them)

Anywhere else I could possibly hear the debate?

He's got a rudder alright, and it's stuck on stupid. A Cake on Newt's 15th anniversary of facing bogus charges? Asserting that Newt is playing hide the ball with his activities aimed at Freddie Mac? Romney is counting on the media to facilitate this game in his (Mitt's) favor; but Newt has enough of the microphone to make a mockery of the fool, Romney.

I think if Newt smells that going on, he will start answering his own question, one which is not on the NBC (Brian Williams) list.... We can start with Iran's nuke, and China's economic phenageling...

One of these days, some moderator is going to lose it when Newt gets a standing-O... Not look like John King's "Deer in the Headlights" facade...

Mitt has been repeating that Newt is a lobbyest. Someone from the crowd today yelled “Don’t lobbyest have to register?”
Through all his stammering and sputtering he wouldn’t let go and continued on the line. Expect something about it tonight.

Wait and see:
Newt is an excellant teacher (He was a professor for years/thus his smooth presentation) He will EXPLAIN to Mitt not only what a lobbyist does, but explain to America that we don’t need someone in the WH that is clueless about how Washington works. We’ve got one clueless politician filling the WH right now.

I will guarantee everyone that the NBC hit squad will try to ressurect the Marianne allegations in some way, to try and trip Newt up. The mainstream media needed guillotining years ago. Now, their diseased spittle is clearly deadly for The Republic. It will not surprise me if NBC and Santorum are linked already, planning just how to contrast Rick's ‘squeaky clean, moral man of Catholic electability’ renown.

NBC is ultra-liberal.

This will be all about: criminal activity, gay anything, killing babies, racist food stamps, and socialist hatred of free enterprise.

All of which means they’re teeing things up for Mitt Romney.

Mitt will go 1 for 5 with a single, a couple of foul balls, and two strikeouts. Fox News will proclaim him the second coming of Babe Ruth.

Gingrich will go 4 for 5 with a homer, 2 singles and a double. He will not be the star of the game. That will go to the umpire, the NBC moderator.

Brit Hume over on Fox will ask Karl Rove who gets to be the guy and who the girl.

In my vision of Democrat hell, the democrat debates are hosted by Levin, Rush, and Bay Buchanan, and the audience is TEA party. When the volume of the audience rises above, say 50db, flames ignite below the respondent’s seat. Oh, and there’s an open bar for the audience.

Romney shrinks in stature for me every day. His statements yesterday and today in regard to Gingrich have shown him to be petty. Would he dish out needless insults if he gets involved in a diplomatic row?

Gov Mitch Daniels is supposed to give the Republican response to the SOTU tomorrow evening.

[Could that be a trial balloon to see what kind of response he gets, thus giving the Elite Republicans reason to reconsider him as a possible replacement for the faltering Romney?]
