Skip to comments.Live Thread: Republican Presidential Debate in Jacksonville, FL on CNN 8 P.M. EST
Posted on 01/26/2012 3:56:03 PM PST by kristinn
Hosted by Wolf Blitzer at the University of North Florida in Jacksonville. Candidates: Newt Gingrich, Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum and Ron Paul.
Word is the audience will be "allowed" to participate.
| Rick Santorum:
Please notice that you have virtually no chance of WINNING the winner-take-ALL delegates next Tuesday in Florida, but you VERY likely will be the spoiler that throws ALL delegates to the liberal ROMNEY.
So therefore, as soon as this debate is over...
...PLEASE announce that you are MOVING your campaign immediately, to get a HEAD START in the NEXT TWO states (Nevada and Maine), which are having their CLOSED CAUCUSES just FOUR days later! ...next SATURDAY (9 days from now).
By doing that, you will assist with Romney losing Florida and then MOST LIKELY dropping out before you have to.
Then, with (You, Newt, and Ron Paul) competing, you will have a better chance of outlining why you would be the better conservative than Newt in representing the GOP.
Romney does not know what ads he is putting out.
Newts pandering. You can not have different laws in America for Mom and Grandma. Its a constitutional thing.
Romney won’t own up to his ads..... he’s a slimeball
I’m so sick of this. Ask some important questions and have a damn debate.
I sure miss Rick Perry.
Mitt Romney has launched the biggest smear campaign I’ve ever seen by one Republican to another, against Newt. I can’t believe what I’m seeing!
Oh, yeah, the old Sgt. Schultz defense.
Didn't Romney just state that his father is a Mexican immigrant?
So, when was he naturalized?
Barf! Romney is accusing Newt of using smears, but he is the one who is running the biggest smear campaign I’ve ever seen by a Republican in a primary!
Newt fights back to a draw...that was close.
“Tell me they didnt stack the audience with fake Mitt supporters.”
Ok, I won’t...
But it is.
Romney’s condescending, ultra-fake tone is making my blood boil. He’s EXACTLY like Obama.
Oh boy, here come the geniuses from Miami
Well..I lasted 22 minutes.
I can’t stand listing to Romney.
TBS here I come.
“Why does Mittens sound like a 12 year old stomping his feet?”
Because he feels that because he was a Governor for 4 years and has a mountain of money that he should be given the Presidency as well.
Romney has a stacked audience. He successfully dropped Rubio’s name.
Rubio really helped Romney. Dammit it all.
Funny how they try to tell all immigration isn’t an issue, yet the debate has been nothing but immigration....
Open borders and endless immigration free for all, will eventually kill America.
Here is the white leadership conference questions...I mean Hispanic.
Hey, McRomeny....when was English mandated as the official language?
Newt is selling the southwest to illegal aliens.
You and me both, brother.
I don’t know if its true or not but I heard are economy is not doing so good? Probably just a rumor going around.
“I don’t think that was my ad, but I’ll take a look.”
Loser doesn’t even know what ads he’s running.
Unfortunately, this is a weak area for Newt. On immigration and, more particularly, this strange concern about the deportation of old Hispanic grandmothers, Gingrich sounds too much like Perry - which is exactly the issue that helped kill his campaign. Hate to say it, but the chameleon is winning the debate on this particular subject.
Mitt is projecting, just like the Dems.
Romney: "Our problem is not with 11 million illegal alien grandmothers." #cnndebate
Blitzer also slimed Gingrich with “ghetto” question. This debate has been completely set up.
that’s why I said barf. Love threads move fast...
Romney lies about Newts ethics charges which were bs and Newt panders to illegals. Oyvey.
good grief, Ron Paul is such a pussy.
Ron Paul blaming America...
Gingrich has this in the bag.
The MSM wants Romney because they have the anti-Mormon rhetoric at the ready and they know true Conservatives will stay home or only vote the bottom of the ticket.
“This is just another FIXED CNN-BAIN debate.”
Yes and it’s damn sickening.
Except he pronounced it, "cai-oh-tay".
I think Obama was mentioned about three times in the last debate. If the candidates don’t bring him up (like Santorum just did), they’ll not mention him.
“LOCAL” Can be a confusing term, I know.
Ye gods. First thing out of Newts mouth is a lie. Hes not from Georgia and hasnt lived there in years and years. He was a congress critter from Ga. But he lives in Va. Was born in Pa.
HERE KITTY, KITTY, MEOW!
Santorum got that one right.
Santorum got that one right.
I hope these two go at it all night.
Smartest guy on stage is Newt and he thinks of policy from many sides all day long.
Mitt has sound bites and I can’t wait until he gives out the wrong on...with his synthetic indignation.
A weak dodge.
Paul : Free trade with Cuba. There's a national law in place because Castro nationalized American businesses after his takeover Paul.
I agree audience stacked for MITT big time...Newt seems subdued...he better get mad.
YEAH Santorum! Bring in the disgusting Honduras episode of a couple years ago!
Hes EXACTLY like Obama.
Couldn’t have said it better! LOL
