Ouch! Newt comes out of his corner swinging. Ron Paul singing the same ol’ tune. Looks like Gingrich’s got this one in the bag.

Peter King couldn't have driven a nail up his butt after that.

Newt addressed SC specifically. Romney failed.

SANTORUM needs to watch it on charactor.

This has been said by several people - Santorum is just 10% or 20% away from having the media going after him and his wife. I don't think Santorum wants his wife's past brought up, and it shouldn't be brought up, but Santorum is inviting it.

He couldn't find cover fast enough. He's still shaking from it... ;-)

I too appreciated Romney taking the high road in contrast to where Santorum really wanted to go but hesitated. I say he is Bachmann II on her desperate days. But, he is coming in FOURTH in South Carolina, below Ron Paul. Get out Rick.

Romney should have been stopped and told the rules... when you are mentioned, you get to debate the point of which you were mentioned.
Romney instead chose to change the subject and answer something else

AGAIN! he just did it again, he does not want to answer the question

Its a sign of a sick micro-controller

Romney has his deflection shield up on high - blah blah blah and not answering, just giving his campaign rhetoric. Trying to be a cheerleader and trying way too hard to look aggressive. Yuck.

Santorum couldn’t get his bearings...trying hard to give a right answer but not finding his footing to do so. Wasn’t about to knock Newt but fiddling for words how to make himself look good.

Mitt had a rehearsed answer on the Port of Charleston and Newt got it first. That’s why he had to go back and get it out.

I never feel like Romney really says anything. I know he’s a smart guy, but I just don’t get him. Newt’s direct answers are much better...imho.

Mitt: “John let’s get on to the real issues, that’s all I have to say” (probably not an exact quote.

I have a question. Is this Mitt’s official site?
http://americaneedsmitt.com/blog/

Because if it is, Mitt’s surrogate has said it all.
“Deadbeat Dad Newt, Just Teaching Kids Values?”

Hypocritical POS.
That article is the most recent, BTW. Someone did not waste much time.

I'm getting the Charlie Brown teacher's voice "Bwa wha wha Bwha wha wha whaa'" sound in my head when I listen to Romney.

Oh and am I the only one glad to hear the candidates sniping at OBAMA instead of EACH OTHER?

Something I've liked about Newt is that he gets specific to the state's economy and business climate in ways other candidates do not.

Santorum pushing hard on manufacturing jobs; it's one of his two best messages.

Unfortunately, Santorum’s answer showed his true colors.

Wouldn’t mind him being Newt’s VP, but his judgement on Newt was glaring and unfortunate.

Perry would have said none of us are perfect. Don’t throw stones.

John Puke King has mad Newt even more likable to average Americans.

People will support Newt now more than EVER !!!
