And then there were three and a half minds left campaigning for the Republican presidential nomination: Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum and Ron Paul.
Link to CNN livestream page.
Hosted by CNN's John King at the North Charleston Coliseum.
The rest say:
Yeah, what Newt said!
Newt to loser King..
“At the very least.... OWN you decision to start the debate with that question. John. you are a p-— Own YOUR decision to start the debate with that question.... you PUNK.’ Own your own creepiness John.
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
Sorry to say... For me.. FR is TOOOO SLLLOWWW.. to be usefull for this kind of commenting anymore..
To the rest of you.. enjoy. I guess, I’ll read.
Something his wife did when she was young and single doesn’t say a word about santorum’s character!
Prefer Rick over all the rest, but he should have taken the higher road and just said his first few sentences and stopped. :(
10 minute time limit tonight,ey?
Romney trying to sound passionate and work up the crowd. Is it me, or has he been blathering for 4 minutes?
Mitt is boycotting again. Forget the Bain attacks.
It is very slow. I am about to give up and come back later, but WAY TO GO NEWT!!!!
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.
Oh, no KIDDING! And that smirk is sooooooooo annoying.
Starting right off with a standing ovation for his media smack-down. :)
Santorum is hurting himself with the sniping instead of focusing on the answer.
WOW WOW WOW . . . I was watching here in my Mom Cave and was clapping wildly for Newt!!! Slap down! I was surprised the idiot CNN guy came out the gate with it but WOW was I impressed with Mr. Speaker’s reply!!!!! Go NEWT!!!!!
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 is more energetic though tonight..he’s afraid to look too passive compared to Newt.
Newt hit the ball out of the park in the opening.
