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.
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?
Because if it is, Mitt’s surrogate has said it all.
“Deadbeat Dad Newt, Just Teaching Kids Values?”
That article is the most recent, BTW. Someone did not waste much time.
That was probably Newt’s Ronald Reagan moment.
Oh and am I the only one glad to hear the candidates sniping at OBAMA instead of EACH OTHER?
Santorum is hurting himself with the sniping instead of focusing on the answer.
(I believe in capitalism for all not just for high finance”)
“Obama at home watching debate would say, Oh sh*t, I wouldnt want to debate Newt!”
Whatta ME gonna do, Massa Soros???
Santorum pushing hard on manufacturing jobs; it's one of his two best messages.
“Ill support the nominee because theyre all better than Obama but the remaining candidates completely underwhelm me.”
I’m whelmed by Newt.
“Kings got shake voice. Newt got to him.”
LOL. Libs everywhere felt a shiver.
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 !!!
Also, Newt had very specific initiatives affecting SC like the Port of Charleston whereas Santorum is just pandering “SC can do anything!”
throwing paul a bone.
Santorum just quoted a statistic about Iowa because he didn’t have a similar relevant story about SC. Not good
General platitudes... Santorum opens his mouth but doesn’t say anything specific
Newt is doing better but Romney is doing OK. Dick Morris just said Santorum is boring, and he’s correct.
Dick Morris is tweeting that Newt’s “head isnt in it,” and that he made a mistake by “attacking” Marianne.
What the hell is HE watching?????
I kinda thought Rick actually wanted to go further against Rick, hesitated, and thought better of going to far, so he stuck with sputtering about charactor issues. Nevermind that it is the charactor of Marianne the Vicious that is in question in 2011. Newt has overcome his already.
Newt just won SC in the first three minutes.
Sorry, missing < /sarc > tag.
“Not sure it was a good reply but CNN needs to move on.”
Not sure??? It was a GREAT reply!!! To have given any other response would have legitimized that line of questioning.
trying to post is almost useless. See you guys later.
