I’m not hating on Santorum. I just think he is coming across a little desperate tonight. Possibly for good reason. He is tied for last with Dr Nut bar.

Newt and Paul are the smartest men on the sage, but Paul is crazy, Steven Hawking smart and Newt is focused, Sheriff Joe smart. Mitt and Santorum are there because of their nice hair.

I can’t figure out why Santorum is so bitterly angry tonight.

He didn't get Perry's endorsement, and people don't seem to care that he won Iowa.

it’s actually been kinda fun to watch Ron Paul tonight.

Maybe just because Santorum sucked so badly.

Do you base your belief that Romney will appoint pro-life judges on the fact that only 9 of his 36 judicial appointments were Republicans?

I never thought I’d say this, but Ron Paul is looking remarkably composed compared to Rick Santorum. It’s probably because they aren’t focusing on foreign policy.

But yeah, Rick is imploding. He could do what’s best for the country and drop out before the votes are cast, but based on his unpleasant demeanor tonight, I suspect he’ll stay in just to spite Newt.

I also think he burned his bridge with Newt. I’m not so sure we’ll see a Gingrich/Santorum ticket.

Romney’s ship just sailed on abortion. He admitted that he didn’t care about the abortion stances of judges his appointed.

Soon to be a campaign commercial against mittens.

Newt’s answer was not pro-amnesty. He specifically stated that to receive citizenship, illegal immigrants would have to go back to their home countries and get in line at the back of the line.

Then Romney pretty much copied Newt’s answer.

Newt has a 98.6% approval record with National Right to Life. He played a role in stopping partial birth abortions. I dont know how Rick S can go on the road and leave his dying child behind...that would be so difficult for me.

Nope. That speaks volumes about where the media comes down on issues that affect the country, especially when Obama is blowing it.

Hmm.

I would say (out of 4 ****)

Newt *** (obviously tired, and at the end of a LONG day)
Romney ** 1/2 (the tax question really got him, and no big applause moments like Newt had with question #1)
Santorum 1/2 * - completely and deservedly lost any hope with his petty, smarmy and vicious performance tonight.
Paul 1/2 * - Did better than usual because I don’t remember him whining about Iran. Still a universe away from being acceptable as a candidate.

Santorum was correct when he pointed out the “Right to Life” in the Declaration. That is the foundation.

Exactly! We need Rick to stay in the race and give us some kind of option. I hated that Perry left and I sure don't want to lose another one.

At one point, Newt said he accepts the sincerity of Mitt Romney’s conversion to pro-life. Then moderator King turns right around and says to Romney that Gingrich questions or doubts his sincerity, giving Romney a chance to feel offended by Gingrich.
