ALERT EVERYONE YOU KNOW - let's see who's got the goods!

ON C-SPAN! WATCH GINGRICH & SANTORUM DEBATE THIS EVENING FROM Birmingham, ALABAMA!
I am proud of both Newt and Rick for attending this. I love it. I am so glad that Romney and kook Paul declined.
Exactly. May the best man win.
Hope is a real debate not like the Huckabee photo op.
You should know, Naps, that C-Span wasn’t going to carry it until Romney agreed to attend - sound familiar? And then we just bombarded them with phone calls and emails, and they changed their minds this weekend. I think I even posted the numbers a couple times on Free - just goes to show you, some news corporations actually listen - or they just don’t like their phones ringing off the hook!! Happy viewing tonight!!
Oh this ought to be a good one...but of course Romney couldn’t stand a chance and why he’s not there...he’s such a slippery snake....and his people know full well they can’t let him stand alone before the wisdom of the wise or he’ll fall on his face...too risky now since he’s not so far been able to cinch the title he seeks.
As usual Romney slithers away from the room.....
I’ll be watching. Here in North AL just got a robo call from Santorum FULL of LIES about Newt. Blatant lies.
Newt better be on guard in this debate since ricky is getting desperate to make up ground in AL & MS.
thanks. If it’s still fresh in your mind could you just jot down what they said? I hate to ask you to relive that nightmare...
Funny how Mitt’s delegates seem to come from ‘blue states’ or states with a heavy population of Mormons...due to the influx of New Yorkers and New Englanders (spit) into Florida; I consider them to be a ‘blue state’...
I find it annoying that these candidates have to tear each other down...seems to work, and that doesn’t say much about our country.
I let it roll over to my machine . . . then I answered and said it was a LIE and to never call my number again. I’ll go listen and take a few notes and come back and post.
Meh Romney chickened out again from a debate, this time in Alabama.
He doesnt want to answer questions on the last revelations about his past coddling with Washington, and his debunked lies:
1994 - Romney supporting the Individual Mandate on Health Insurance.
Romneys Conservative Judicial record: as Governor, he appointed 3 times as many non-Republican Judges as Republican Judges!
Romney during his campaign for governor in 2002: I am big believer
in getting money where the money is. The money is in Washington.
Watch the trio of video clips on Romney proposing to Obama copying Romneycare
2006, Romney Praises Ted Kennedy As Main Parent Who Was Absolutely Essential To Romneycare. Mitt Romney has this albatross around his neck and cannot shoo it off.
Who cares about the Kook, it is Romney who needs to man up he is afraid of a flub that will ruin his streak.
If he can't stand up to Newt now and thinks he is gonna skate, what the &@!! is he gonna do against Obama?
In a recorded call to voters in Alabama and Mississippi, Chuck Norris explains how Speaker Newt Gingrich would beat President Obama in a head to head combat this Fall.
went something like this . . . not word for word
Newt Gringrich is a slap in the face to every law abiding family in AL . . . Newt supports amnesty for illegal aliens . . . even lawbreaking ones who have stolen social security numbers and taken our jobs . . . Gingrich joined Obama by supporting healthcare mandates . . . Wall Street bailouts and Cap & Trade . . . then it QUIT . . . that must have been when I answered and yelled into the phone “that’s a LIE”.
thanks so much. I’ll be back in a little bit, too.
It’s Romney’s birthday today.
I know this because I’m watching Neil Cavuto and the slimebag is Neil’s guest.
I put one over here.
Today is Romney’s birthday.
I guess he’s 66.
Romney is talking to Neil Cavuto and he’s getting mad...LOL.
He said we cannot go until August without a nominee!
Better no nominee than an Obama clone!
I probably won’t be able to watch, I have a group coming at 6 to divy up the Newt signs for our county’s 38 precients. NEWT NEWT NEWT
Are Romney and Paul going to show?
Mitt tries to save face by his absence! LOL I just don’t think that’s gonna work! In fact doing nothing is like OBAMA!
It will probably be on re-run in the middle of the night, or just turn it up real loud while you are “divvying” - that must be another of those southern terms... Are you okay with signs? because there are a few scattered extra signs that were being claimed this morning by people who were running low... if you are low I can check on them for you...
Thanks so much. I want to share :) Happy Viewing tonight!!
GOD BLESS YOU!
No, neither Romney nor Paul are participating!
that's campaign 2012 for you - it's got us screaming at our answering machines... oh, November, please come! You're great..
Given it's a party-sponsored gathering, Newt is likely to be at a disadvantage. Santorum's task, for Romney and the party, is to take down Newt so Romney can finally win in the South.
Newt's task is to be cheerful.
I have no worries about Newt outshining Santorum... but there were 2000 seats that were free to the public, supposedly, and I don’t know much they were manipulated. It is also in a theater, so the audience could be a factor.
Rep. Joe Walsh: Weve got maybe one election to literally save this country
By not showing up at the Presidential Forum this evening
Romney and Ron Paul are bobbing, weaving and ducking .. doing everything to kept from being called on like kids in class... we’ve all seen it when we went to school they weren’t prepared... being absent isn’t going to cut it!
Newt will be on the Hannity show at the top of the hour.
Well, since it isn’t the phone in format there shouldn’t be as many, about 50%, of the questions ask by libs pretending to be “Republicans” or “Independents” :o
I just received my twenty-third robo call from Team Romney!
This one was recorded by our Lt. Governor. I hung up right after he identitfied himself. Didn’t wait to hear the message.
I’m in DeSoto County Ms. The county coordinator for Newt had been sent 50, I’m on my way to pick up 50 more from Shelby County Tn. that have only been used once and the coordinator is meeting someone else for another 25 once used signs. We will pick these up Tuesday night and they will be available for other primaries or November.
Godspeed, and thanks so much for the travel time. GO NEWT!
I had an invitation to attend . . . but received it around noon yesterday and had to reply by 2:00 p.m. . . . and I didn’t feel like I could hit the road and attend with such short notice . . . I should have gone, I just really hate driving and parking in Downtown Birmingham. I did go see him last week here in Huntsville.
You’ll probably able to see the debate posted tomorrow at:
It posts all the debates, interviews etc
That’s uglier than a Romney robo call!
It made me MAD. Mad enough to pick up the phone and yell into it.
GOD BLESS YOU ONYX, for all you do, keeping us updated and encouraged.
Romney didn’t go to Atlanta, and won’t go to Birmingham, and he wants Southern Conservatives to vote for him. I think one poll did showed Romney leading among Alabama democrats. I’m sure they can hardly waiy to get him on the November ballot. Paul not going either? I’m surprised at least one member of team Romney won’t show up.
Well, I'm just glad to hear some Newt supporters got invites.. I was worried about the audience being stacked for Santorum or Paul. There's still time to invite a few people over and have a little impromptu watch party, if you're so inclined.
looking forward to going to vote with my DD who will be voting for the first time tomorrow . . . she turned 18 in Jan. and will be another vote for Newt! Seems like just yesterday when I’d take both kids with me to vote in their strollers and get our “I Voted” stickers. I always took them with me so they’d know how important our voting rights are. So I will wait until she gets out of school at 3:00 and we’ll go together. :)
I got her two buttons at the Newt event so she can start a Presidential campaign button collection IF she so desires. She wanted me to check her out that day to go with me. Wish I’d have started one at her age . . . and IF I did I’d have some prized RR one’s in my collection.
Well, it’s on C-Span. A political junkie like me will be watching for sure. But, I wonder how many AL & MS voters will watch. But, hey, if just 10 percent of the Primary Voters view this Debate, it will be worth it.
Thanks for the heads-up. I heard about this but I did not know what network would be carrying it. Thanks again!!!
