On June 13th, 2011, seven GOP candidates took to the stage in Manchester, New Hampshire to duke it out for the 2012 Republican nomination. In case you missed it, here is the entire debate video from St. Anselm College broadcast on CNN and WMUR-TV:

  1. Please, please… never allow John King to moderate a debate again. Can you spell “HORRIBLE?” Yep, I get it, moderating is a tough job, but his CONSTANT hems and haws and mmmm’s while a candidate is talking is unprofessional at best and distracting as worse. Don’t let the “Clinton News Networks” host the GOP debates ever again; this election cycle or the next…. and the next… etc.

  2. Oh my word. Please bring back the stinkin’ bell!! This stupid host and all his grunting is more annoying than any buzzer or bell!

  3. I agree, it is a hard job to take care of but answers during political debates never follow the specified time limit. Plus 30 seconds is much too short of a time to give an adequate response.

  4. Fema is running out of money? LOOOL what a joke, the govt. ran out of money a long time ago and it doesn’t seem to matter!

  5. I was less than moved by any of the candidates. Same old same old – yawn. Obviously all of them feel Obama has failed us or they wouldn’t be running for the office. I wish they would have spent more time telling me what they think and what they would have done differently instead of telling me what Obama thinks or should have done differently.

    • Yes Steve, because Ron Paul is of course same ole same ole. 30 years of defending liberty and following the constitution, trying to wake people up to the federal reserve ( Ohh look, everyone cares now ) and what they do.

      A voting record that is flawless with his stances.

      Cool stuff Steve L.

      • Ron Paul has a lot of truth in what he says but his deliverance is awful. He’s not, and never will be a great orator. And some of his views (like on denying evolution) are just ridiculous pandering. Not to mention he said he was against the overturn of don’t ask don’t tell which has been a bane on our military personnel since it went into law. Issues like this make him not fit in with republicans or democrats.

      • Ron Paul is John Gault. No politician in this era has shown more consistency, character, knowledge, and talent. It is true that any of the candidates would be better than obama, but Ron’s got is Right. He was the only one with courage to claim the power of commander in chief instead of cowardly deferring the question to his generals. He’s a true AMERICAN leader. Unfortunately, I fear that if elected he would meet the same fate as all the great American leaders. Lincoln, Garfield, McKinley, Kennedy. All presidents that were in favor of liberty and against the federal reserve. I know that there will be some boo’s about Kennedy from this crowd, but look up Executive order 11110 first. Can it be a coincidence that all 4 of our assassinated presidents were all anti fed?


    • Perhaps you can look at each persons voting record and/or what they’ve said and done in the past instead of waiting for little snip bit answers in a debate?

      Just a thought……

  6. So if the ethanol thing is so great and wonderfull and is “working”, then why does it need to be subsidised?….lol

  7. “What did you learn in the last 2 hours?” What is this pre-school? What I learned in the last two hours is that none of these candidates have any idea how to do anything better than Obama, yet they all believe they can. Talk is cheap when none of them present any sort of a plan on health care or the war in iraqaganistan. None of these candidates have a chance against Obama, but it will be entertaining to watch them fall like dominoes. Sadly this is like the bench-warmers from the last election trying to reclaim some fame. It’s just pathetic to watch.

  8. Dear God, John King was so irritating that I almost decided not to watch the debate. His sounds in the background, as Bob talked about, were absolutely unbearable. Otherwise, Ron Paul is brilliant…just brilliant. Now if he can just get more aggressive (this is his last chance) he would be amazing.

  9. Bachmann and Romney were especially impressive; Ron Paul had good ideas but did not seem presidential in any way; Herman Cain’s views on Muslims in the cabinet were something that belong in the dark ages, not the 21st century – disappointing coming from an African-American who would have experienced the same prejudice 50 odd years ago; Pawlenty’s inability to confront Romney over healthcare in person was very telling but he didn’t have any other major hiccups otherwise and Gingrich impressed me but he has lost a lot of friends recently and I’m not sure he can recover. I think Romney will win the nomination and choose Bachmann as his running mate.

  10. CNN and obama are scared to let Gary Johnson in the debate.. He is a breath of fresh air compared to the other republican candidates. Its really hard for CNN to paint a pro-choice pro-gay rights, anti war GOP candidate who wants to legalize marijuana as a right wing extremist. I believe Governor Gary Johnson is Obamas biggest threat. His socially liberal stances will be attractive to democrat and independent voters. Not to mention he was a very successful two term(that’s one more term than mitt romney) republican Governor in new mexico a state that is 2 to 1 democrat. He left office with a billion dollar surplus and was arguably the most fiscally conservative governor ever. He is a true Statesman and practices good stewardship of your tax dollars. He also will not engage in mud slinging or name calling. He ran two campaigns in NM where he never mentioned his opponent. He will stick to the issues and not try to blame obama. I met Gary Johnson twice last year in my state of MO.. Once when he spoke at UMKC and another event he spoke at Missouri Southern State University. in Joplin Mo. He took the time to answer all my questions and sincerely listened to my concerns.. He is obviously working harder than the other candidates! For this he has earned my vote and support! If you have not heard of Governor Gary Johnson, Google him!

  11. Jesus Christ, John King, STFU!!

    The sound of him grumbling over everyone’s responses was almost unbearable. Why couldn’t he just shut his yap and let the candidates speak?

  12. It’s very encouraging to see 3 people that saw the moderator was an idiot. He was destructive to the whole process. And his constant whining actually wasted more time. Not 10 seconds would go bye and he would start mumbling. Right about on cue when the speakers started make very valid points that damaged the obama/progressive/drink the koolaid/completely out of touch agenda. Which actually resulted in breaking the candidate’s rhythm causing the to take more time anyway and blunting the edge of their point. Which makes John King is the perfect embodiment of the obama modus operandi. His behavior reminded me of our government for the last 3 years. This debate would have gone better if it was run by PTI.
