Didn’t see this on the sidebar, but it does say live thread and was posted earlier. It seems to be where everybody has gathered.

Thanks newzjunkey:) I am watching "The MAGNIFICENT Speaker," now. What an amazing man with a dynamite record. He would become the greatest president since Reagan. GO NEWT! WOOT! WOOT!

I doubt I will watch Mitt or RS as I know their routine

I am so glad to see Mr. Newt as the first for this forum. Now, people will compare the others to his answers. Could not be better. His answers are exact and shows a complete understanding of NOT ONLY the problems BUT solutions to those problems.

GO MR NEWT!

The nervous small businessman asked a question about sugar, high food prices and the food subsidies. Newt would sign a repeal.

Earlier Fox's business guy battled Newt over how he arrived at $2.50 as a target gas price. Newt said he asked oil industry experts what target price they need to ensure further investment. They said between $2 and $2.50 so he went for the higher number. When the Fox guy pushed again, Newt said he'd be glad to give him the experts' contact information to talk to.

Newt's time seems up answering some questions from FOX's people.

Now there's three new people in the chairs. These are Ohioans. The college senior is asking about jobs and gov't: Newt talking about EPA, corporate tax rates, etc. and how that will get jobs going.

Woman now asking about bailouts, what would he do if it happened again. Said it was a bad idea. Said Bush and Obama tried to trickle down money through the banks to homeowners and it never got there. Newt said we could've given the money to individuals.

Custom knife business owner takes issue with Newt's plan for unemployment because he's described it as giving people to do nothing. Newt explained he wants, from day one to connect people with both training and a business in need of employees instead of handing out money particularly given the number of people taking the full 99 weeks.

Last question was from the college senior about making payroll and a subtle dig at Newt's means.

The forum is low key, sometimes the questions aren't clear. I'm not sure if everyone planned their questions.

Romney is up next.

By the time you posted yours, the original live thread...though not shown on the sidebar...already had 32 comments on it.

Somebody now says there is also another live thread. Don’t know anything about that one.

What you are seeing from Romney is the MA 2-Step. His plans are not concrete...he will only manage the decay. Go along to get along.

This forum is noting but a pre-planned ad for Mitt Romney!

Go here and see why:

Why doesn’t Governor Sarah Palin sponsor an energy debate?

Let’s do watch them just to see the stark contrast. Newt really was magnificent, wasn’t he? How everyone doesn’t get that is beyond me.

This is special ad for Romney!
It is supposed to be about JOBS only, but they staged it so only Romney was given the chance to show his ‘caring’, his ‘emotion’, ‘the side that no one has seen’........ and they are all so ‘awed’ at his concerns for the soldiers...

Only Huckabee has a little bit good thing to say about Gingrich at the end after showering compliments on the other 2.
From what he just heard from the panelists, Gingrich brilliantly summarizes how gov policies affect people’s lives and as president he will formulate policies to enhance people’s lives.

This is disgusting - the truly brilliant and capable gets buried while the flip-flop talking heads are put on the pedestal.

This was a campaign commercial. All of the Romney supporters are very excited on their blogs. They feel so confident; they’re encouraging Newt and Rick to go home and back the nominee.
