Saturday evening will mark the second GOP debate airing on a broadcast network as ABC presents an event from Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa. The debate is sponsored by ABC News, Yahoo! News, WOI-TV, the Des Moines Register and the Republican Party of Iowa. This will be a 2 hour broadcast and with only 6 candidates on stage, there will be a slightly different dynamic than previous debates.

Full Debate Video: ABC News/Yahoo Republican Debate Video

Air Time: Saturday, December 10 at 9pm ET / 8pm CT / 6pm PT on ABC

Participants: Romney, Perry, Bachmann, Gingrich, Santorum, Paul

Report from MEDIAITE:

Now that former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich is beginning to break away in Republican primary polls, the Mitt Romney campaign is beginning to ramp up its attacks. Saturday’s ABC News/WMUR-TV debate offers Romney his best chance to slow the Newt-mentum, but it’s not a do-or-die situation for the consistent poll runner-up. Newt Gingrich, on the other hand, needs to turn in a flawless performance to justify voters’ faith in his key selling point: the notion that he’ll mop the floor with President Obama in general election debates.

Saturday’s debate will be just the second this season to appear on a broadcast network, and the first to air in its entirety (CBS shunted the last half-hour of its debate to a webcast), giving all of the candidates a much wider audience to speak to. For Mitt Romney, there’s a certain amount of pressure on him to damage frontrunner Newt Gingrich, to slow his momentum in the polls, but it’s not desperation time. Romney has Gingrich badly outgunned in the fundraising and organization department, and can hang in with decent performances in early states.

Gingrich, though, has to fight sky-high expectations, fueled partially by his own hubris, that tie directly into his appeal as a candidate. Despite all of his baggage (personal, political, and financial), Republican voters are enamored of Gingrich because he expresses their existential panic at the prospect of a second Obama term, and they are drooling at the prospect of their big brainiac facing down the President in general election debates. A poor performance Saturday would seriously undermine that.

All eyes will be on how Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich approach each other with regard to the recent attacks both candidates have begun leveling. With Herman Cain out the picture and Rick Perry out of double-digits, the only remaining candidate vying for Iowa appears to be Ron Paul who will also be looking to bring down both Gingrich and Romney.

Should be an interesting 2 hours.

        • i love how u guys ignore ALL of Newt Baggage, money lobbying from Freddie Mac, Flip Floping, lol Losers lol

          • I’m way more concerned with “obama baggage” than newt baggage. Newt is what we need. Everyone looked at Regan like he was nuts too. I’m all in with Gingrich.

          • Obama will eat Newt for lunch if Newt is the Republican nominee. I really hope Newt is the nominee. Newt doesn’t stand a chance against Obama.

          • stormin

            I love the fear Newt has put into all you self righteous liberals. We know how perfect your lives have been. Paving the road to hell, with all your good intentions and all.

        • Ron Paul is there to educate the masses. As far as libertarianism (what Ronald Reagan called the heart of conservatism), after him there’s Jon Huntsman. The only one who can beat Obama and unite this country. He’s also anti-establishment unlike Newt and Mitt, and the most successful Governor alive today.

          Newt Gingrich is polarizing, a DC idea man, not a sturdy consistent leader.

          Mitt Romney is a phony. He literally says whatever the majority of his
          audience wants to hear at any given moment. If he doesn’t want to
          answer something, he evades the question, talks in circles, and
          changes the subject by attacking Obama. He’s also a PROVEN FAILURE…

          FACTS:
          Mitt Romney left Governor’s office with 34% approval!

          Jon Huntsman REFORMED healthcare, education, and taxes as Governor. PEW ranked #1 governed state.

          Now Utah is #1 in eduation spending
          Now Utah is #1 in JOB GROWTH

          Now WSJ ranked his economic plan the MOST FISCALLY CONSERVATIVE

          He left office with 88% approval! often >90% in office.
          ——————————————————

          On another note, he passed pro-life amendments. And safeguarded the 2nd amendment.

          Also, UNLIKE NEWT AND MITT, Huntsman is anti-establishment and wants to:
          -reform banking
          -end subsidies
          -end loopholes, flatten and simplify taxes
          -have large scale deficit reduction
          -reform Congressional lobbying

          GIVE HIM A FIRST LOOK!

    • I don’t trust Newt Gingrich!

      Gingrich is an ambitious member of the CFR. Today, the CFR advocates for more surrender of our national sovereignty, and the implementation of world government. The progressive members of the CFR are globalists and internationalists. Newt Gingrich has been a member of the CFR since 1990, Newt is not a national sovereignty advocate!

      Newt Gingrich helped pass NAFTA, GATT, the WTO and he himself wrote that the world should be border-less with one government! Don’t forget that Newt supported Dede Scozzafava (an ultra leftist running as a Republican) over the Tea Party candidate in New York in 2010. Gingrich is an agent for the elite-establishment not the American people! A vote for Gingrich is exactly what the establishment want in order to cement the power they have in place now. Gingrich wants to continue engaging in world conflicts! Why, would an intelligent Republican advocate this course when America is sinking to it’s knees in financial ruin? Who stands to profit when America collapses?

      Gingrich is smart, slick and quite capable in fooling people who don’t question and verify his past alliances, associations and voting records or value the importance of bad character. Gingrich is a very experienced politician and he is perhaps one of the craftiest ones to come around in a while. A good debater better deceiver. But more important is that he knows human nature. He knows exactly what to say to appeal to biased Republicans who hold their personal interest’s so dear that they will in the end compromise their values and the Constitution and ultimately America itself to win the election. He is self-assured to the point of being openly cocky, he’s confident that he can pull it off, he smirks at us knowing that not enough voters care about character to bother to look into and honestly assess and judge the fruit of his works.

      For the those of us loyal to the Constitution, above, before and even at the expense our own personal agenda’s, armed with information researched and verified, we can and are looking into his past deeds, records, affiliations and associations and we discern and identify the true beneficiary of his work. For us, no longer will party affiliation, slick rhetoric or who is the better debater be used to steer us to vote in a way that will further compromise the Constitution and the very existence of The United States of America.

      I don’t like Newt Gingrich, I don’t trust him, I don’t like his works, I don’t like his character, I don’t like the way he has lived his life and I don’t like the direction that he has helped steer my country to. I don’t like what he proposes for America and I resent the way he dangles enticements to buy my vote! Most of all I don’t like where he want’s to take my country!

      Newt has not served America’s interest in past or present doings nor does he value or intend to uphold America’s Sovereignty as President. He is not the American peoples friend, advocate or representative…………everything he has done in his career helped shift the balance of power away from America to these others he serves— the status quo elite, international central banking interests, global corporations and the military industrial complex. I think Gingrich has spent his career in deception, knowingly, purposely steering America to a global union government bent on America’s demise as a self-governing sovereign country. I think Newt is despicable a con-man, America’s enemy, I think he is an agent for global government and stands ready to seal the contract with the globalists when he becomes President.

      Ron Paul is the Constitutions most stalwart defender, his solutions are always founded, tested and grounded by it’s tenant’s. Ron Paul is America’s protector and candidate for the American people! It is far wiser to throw your support to the man whose principles support and uphold our Sovereign country and the freedom for all American’s to pursue life, liberty and happiness as granted and protected by the Constitution. To win the election Republicans must cast off their personal cause’s to stand for true Constitutional principles that are unimpeachable. The real debate is about adherence to the Constitution. This is the only cause that can be defended when the debate with Obama begins and there is no candidate better equipped than Ron Paul to do it!

      I trust Ron Paul!

      • While I am not excited about Ron Paul (wonderful ideals but he’s too crazy in certain areas), I agree with you 100% about Newt. His character is marred and his past deeds are not commendable.

      • Ron Paul and Jon Huntsman are the only candidates you can trust. Huntsman is the only candidate who can beat Obama and unite this country. GIVE HIM A FIRST LOOK!

      • You leftys are just communist … admit it … Newt is our next president and Ron Paul will create new laws against lefty communist socialist illegal aliens and the non patriot so called american democrats .. oBama sucks and u all know it! What a control freak destroying our country.. what next the world?? I( think not .. Obama is done !!! GO NEWT !!!

    • how any person could ever support gingrich is beyond me. he’s probably the sleaziest, shadiest politician on that stage. nowhere near president worthy. this is the same guy who was trying impeach clinton for a BJ when gingrich was cheating on his own wife. neither side is that great but I’d rather vote for Obama than any of the clowns debating tonight. the republicans are more worried about book sales than being president.

    • Yeah, we liberals are really afraid of Bachmann alright. Afraid she might crazy stare us to death.

      At some point you folks on the right are going to have to start asking the obvious question. Why are Republicans intentionally trying to throw the Presidential race by running such a bunch of clowns such as these? Honestly, you have taken the race for the highest office in the land and made it look like it’s nothing more than a joke.

  1. I hope that the questions from this established liberal network will not be specifically designed to destroy the candidates. How about a question on ENERGY INDEPENDENCE. Or are you afraid that this is a homerun issue for Republicans-HOW ABOUT A QUESTION ABOUT OBAMA BLOCKING THE PIPELINE

  2. The media continues to ignore Ron Paul, even though he is further up in the polls so far than Romney.

    Dr. Paul’s following is only growing, and getting larger.
    Us long time supporters are definite.

    Ron Paul – 2012
    Real Hope,
    Real Change.

    • Newts loyalty is only to himself and his pocket, He does not give a rats ass about people like you who support him, now the fact that you support him is another question, I am not a professional psychoanalyst and cannot answer this question, this remains to be a disturbing mystery, i will say though that any person I have met recently who does support Newt leans towards being an asshole.

  3. I hope Gingrich continues on point and does not attack his own party. We need someone different in the White House or this country is toast.

    • This country is already toast thanks to the 8 devastating years of the Bush/Cheney/Rove regime. It’s going to take decades to recover from THEIR mess, not 4 or even 8 years of an Obama administration that has been blocked by the Republicans since his first day in office!

      • If he was blocked, why are we stuck with a mandated Healthcare bill that steals 1/2 trillion dollars from seniors(medicare)? If Obama IS such a brilliant man why can’t he get the “wingnut republicans” to bend to his will? I know because he’s weak and has spent most of the time golfing and vacationing around the world. Remember what he said, “His children will be alright.” Oh BTW, the Obama Administration was added more money to the deficit then Bush/Cheney’s two wars, all the hurricanes and 9/11, what do you say about that. Government DOES NOT create jobs, just more public union pensions.

        • Denise I have read your comments and you truly give Americans a bad name. it is people like you that make us look stupid around the world, it is bad enough we have the greedy tainted politicans on both sides but we the people obviously never learn. You’re an ignorant uninformed small minded individual who lives in a crowded little box.

          • Tina, everything Denise said was correct. Prove her wrong. From 2007 to 2011 (that includes 2 of Obama’s admin) the Democrats were in control of the House and Senate. They were totally ineffective. 3 years in office, NO BUDGET. layoff the Kool Aid.

        • C’ mon Denise enough with these RepubliCONs talking points, I know you chose to ignore the fact that Bush never put the war on the budget, it is like borrowing on a credit card, at one point you have to pay, which part of Obamacare you don’ t like the part that prohibits insurers to use preexisting conditions or the part that says that you acn still insure your kids until they turn 26. here is a couple of facts for you although you right wing-nuts never care about facts:

          http://www.usatoday.com/news/washington/story/2011-12-05/Medicare-prescription-drugs-health-care-law/51663580/1

          http://www.readersupportednews.org/opinion2/272-39/8753-bomb-buried-in-obamacare-explodes-hallelujah

          • What the USA Today article failed to say was that Medicare Part D has been the one that has come in under budget in past years. If you recall Paul Ryan made note of it in the past and has modeled his plan for future Medicare after it to keep Medicare viable when he argued about Obama taking out half a trillion from Medicare. Department of Health and Human Services is fudging the numbers.
            Say a pill costs 2.00 at 50% of it’s normal 4.00. All Medicare is paying out is 2.00 – period. Department of Health and Human Services is counting the 50% discount on name brand prescription drugs as if it is an actual 50% less that Medicare is paying out as if it is paying 4.00.

            As for ‘Bush never put the war on the budget’; didn’t you ever read the Defense budget bills that went through Congress all those years? You do realize there were earmarks that were put in that had nothing to do with paying for the war but were still counted by congress as part of the Defense budget? Like $2,450,000 million for bridge repairs, $1,200,000 for dental research, $3,400,000 added by the House for rural access to broadband technology, $18,430,000 for payment to the Kaho’olawe Island Conveyance, Remediation, and Environmental Restoration Fund. But I think my favorite was $1,000,000 added by the Senate for Shakespeare in American Military Communities.
            In 2009 Congress funded parochial projects instead of the Pentagon’s defense priorities. Included with funds for projects the military has emphatically stated it did not want, was $23,000,000 for the Hawaii Federal Healthcare Network, $3,600,000 for intelligent decision exploration, $7,000,000 for the Institute of Advanced Flexible Manufacturing Systems, $24,500,000 for the National Drug Intelligence Center which is administered by the Department of Justice, $1,600,000 for conversion of municipal solid waste to renewable diesel fuel, $1,240,000 for Brown Tree Snakes control and interdiction in Guam – these are a few among many earmarks. It’s amazing what the MSM doesn’t bother to tell you as far as the budget the war was on.

            But my favorite ‘you acn still insure your kids until they turn 26’. Really??? Kid at 26 … This is the most stupid argument that people fall for. If you are still a kid at 26 then lets update all laws to 26 being the age you can buy a car, enter a legal contract, vote, drink alcoholic beverages, get married, etc. By 26 you had better be able to stand on your own two feet and pay your own insurance or you are on your way to being a leech.

      • WHAT in the world are you talking about, dumbocrats had BOTH houses of congress AND the white house for the 1st 2 years of Obummers presidency and they added 8 trillion to the national debt plus so much other crap that would take 3 paragraphs to just list it all — the Republicans couldn’t stop ANYTHING during that time

    • You need someone different in the whitehouse…. Newt is not new, he is tainted old news with much baggage and questionable loyalty to say the least. One of the worst speakers of the house and he smells the allmighty dollar from miles away, Amercians like have made the mess we have today, you can’t think for yourself (media does that for you) and you have no backbone, newt gingrich, obama etc all cut from the same cloth. You sir are a spineless jellyfish and annoyingly stupid.

      • Dear Tina,

        Your writing seems overly viseral. I support free markets. That means smaller less involved government. I prefer to make my own buying and trading decisions rather than have someone 100’s or 1000’s of miles away making decisions that affect what I can buy or do. The current philosophy of the democratic party is the antithesis of free markets. While I struggle to determine which republican candidate most agrees with my beliefs and whether I can trust they will do and support what they say, at least as a party, the republican party is much closer to small government and free markets. Then as citizens we all need to stay in our elected officials face, be they national, state or local officials – or we can all kiss our liberties good bye.

  4. The pool of candidates is depressing. The only one worth considering is Ron Paul as he at leads is credible. Sad time to be a true conservative.

    • IF RON PAUL IS SUCH A LEADER WHY HASN’T HE LEAD WHILE IN THE HOUSE. All he does there now is creep around in the background with Rep. Dennis Kicinich a democrat. BTW Paul is not a conservative, he IS a Libertarian.

      • I never suggested Paul was a conservative, read what I wrote. I simply said of the group, he is the best choice conservatives have, and that is not saying a lot.

      • he is the minority because the other politicans that you so admire are corrupt and tainted, he is not. of course they do want him around for many reasons, one is he will burst their greedy little bubble. You my dear are pathetic and a disgrace.

      • the only thing Ron Paul leads in is the number of times he fails at running for president. I like the guy, but he doesn’t support Israel, so I don’t support him.

    • Ron Paul is a sneaky politician, he adds tons of pork for his district to bills that he knows is going to pass, then he votes against them so he can say he is against pork, even though he put it in there in the first place — my kind of guy —

      • How often does he do this and do you have any plans to vote in this election? I know of two instances. Please reconsider when comparing to others…if you plan on voting of course.

  5. Shame on these Republicans for skipping the Trump circus debate and not promoting the man and his shows. It’s like all they care about is the nation.

    • It doesn’t matter, it’s FREE media air time. The candidates are the ones who really control what goes on on the stage. Trump draws large ratings, while means large viewer numbers.

  6. Who among any of us is without mistakes in their past? We, as Americans, MUST be careful not to set up a process that only those who hide their mistakes can have the opportunity to run and be successful. Our Country needs Wisdom – with a BIG W – in their candicate. Most of us learn from the mistakes in our life, and through that process, we become even better people. I am staying open-minded in assessing those running. What is most important is that each of us DOES NOT allow the mass media to push us one way or the other. We must do our own homework and ignore the negative ads that flow our way in order to influence us. I hope Newt stays true to his promise and he will not lower himself and cast negatives against any of his Rupublican opponants. As he has said, his opponant is President Obama, clear and simple. / fmr

    • Mistakes within reason. Why don’t we elect the devil. He’d be better liked than Gingrich. People who served in his own party under Gingrich cannot stand him. He’s just a loud mouth with no taste for real politics.

    • I agree Fran, the largest of the population have married multiple times and I know lots of cheaters many are supposed to be prominant people in our Community go figure. I have always admired Newt, the Republican Establishment gave him a raw deal… he has great accomplishments and was vindicated over the trumped up charges, Barney Frank had much more to do with the Fannie/Freddie fiasco, I watched it closely stince this is my industry, if Fannie had taken the advise they paid Newt for in Consulting fees they may have devited this mess. Newt has risen above the frey and hope he continues to stay on task without the mud slinging. Those throwing stone must have lived a saintly life & bless you for it. He is an outcast to the Political Republican machine, some of which should be voted out of office because they forgot they were sent to work for our good not their own.

  7. I agree with Dave, Gangrene (Gingrich) needs to get the hell out of the race, who needs liers and Flip floppers. Ron Paul 2012

  8. Scary how many people are rooting for Newt. He voted for the installation of the dept of education for crying out loud and wants to strengthen the patriot act (already overpower). He is as big govt as they come, probably bigger then Obama himself.

      • LMAO so you care for a police state? the end of American rights? More power to the Govts? lol sickening… and Newt didnt do that 30 years ago more like 2-3 years ago

      • Now why would someone be so fixated on newt knowing how corrupt he is, a man that truly knows nothing about loyalty and compassion, my conclusion is Denise you are one sick puppy.

  9. I’ve been looking for a Tea Party Conservative for the past couple years when I got involved in the FairTax movement. Michele Bachmann caught my eye in June 2009 when she quoted Michael Barone of the Washington Examiner calling the Obama Administration Gangster Government for firing GM CEO Rick Wagoner. I’m ready to get the Tyrant out of office and have Tea Party Patriot Bachmann take the ax to the IRS and all those Czars and put the government back in the hands of WE THE PEOPLE. I want 100% of my paycheck back because I earned every penny of it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=thR-lVuztIY

    • Deborah, you’re joking, right? Who will pay President Bachmann HER paycheck if you and everyone else get 100% of your paychecks back? George W. Bush had more “czars” than Obama has and what about the lies and coverups in HIS administration? Karl Rove never got frog-marched out of the White House for HIS part in exposing a CIA agent to the press and for killing IT expert Michael Connell right before he was going testify about HIS part in transferring John Kerry’s votes in Ohio to Bush in 2004.

      • CNB, don’t you think that citing your sources would be appropriate here. Because if I remember right, THE OBAMA ADM. cleared all of them from wrongdoing.

    • I would love to see Romney win the whole thing so we can finally test what a highly successful “businessperson” might do as President. Ron Paul would be great to watch as he swings his axe to virtually everything. Santorum (my state) is simply scary. Gingrich’s bombast reveals his low self esteem, but he can be smart and cool… AND SLIPPERY!!! Perry? Oh yeah Perry? And Bachman can barely understand what she learns in her committee meetings. I hear some people saying “I want all of my paycheck.” “Close the IRS.” I would bet these same people have their kids in public school, have working traffic lights, need to cross a bridge or two each day and like the idea of having someone to call when they’re home catches fire. Low taxes sure. No taxes? Climb down from the right wall now… we in the middle don’t bite. Let the entertainment begin.

  10. It will be good to see the dabate. No matter who wins, that candidate will be attacked from all angles. They attacked Herman Cain, and now he’s out. Though I haven’t made up my mind, I am watching the two main candidtates. Rick Santorum and Michelle Bachman have a lot to offer, though they can’t seem to get the momentum.

  11. Everyone rooting for Gingrich should really take a step back and think about why you’re supporting him. You’re allowing the media to choose your candidates for you. There’s no way any of these Gingrich fanatics were pulling for him even a month ago, before the media decided to build him up for ratings. If you’d rather vote for someone you think might win instead of someone you really approve of, please just stay home on election day.

    • I’ve been backing Gingrich for a couple months now, it’s nice to see people are actually starting to pay attention to him. Sure he has his problems, who doesn’t? He’s by far the smartest candidate up there and seems to always have a deep well thought out answer to some of the hardest questions.

      • “Sure he has his problems, who doesnt” LMAO what a moran, its like saying yea sure, everyone steals money, everyone cheats on there wifes, everyone flip flops, everyones corrupt, whats wrong with voting for newt LMAO Jeeesus christ what wronng with these damn so called Americans lol

  12. I was a big supporter of Herman but now it’s Newt! Ron Paul supporters: have you looked at what he says about foreign affairs? He a whack-job. Number one reason I don’t like the guy is he does NOT get iSlam. All he does is regurgitate what the Muslims say themselves! If only the US would get out of the Middle East, they would leave us alone. Paul is clueless! He’s an isolationist to the extreme. He does have some good ideas for domestic issues but foreign affairs, he is a babe-in-the-woods. I worry he is going to run third party if he doesn’t get the GOP nod (which he won’t) and then it was be Obama for 4 more years. Please, no.

    • For those who have not read George Washington’s Fair Well Address, you should! Ron Paul sounds like a carbon copy of George Washington and everything he is talking about, George Washington warned us about in his fair well address to the nation.

      If Ron Paul is crazy so are the founding fathers and George Washington.

      Read the fair well address and you will be shocked a how right on Ron Paul is about foreign policy and everything else.

      Here is a link for those who have not read it. It should be required reading for all politicians.

      Here is a link: http://avalon.law.yale.edu/18th_century/washing.asp

      Tell your friends to read it too then decide who is best for our country.

    • He’s a non-interventionist, not a isolationist. Google “non-interventionism” and that is his foreign policy. Google “blowback” as well and our interventionist history post-ww2.

    • Marianne, I might suggest that you listen more to what Ron Paul says, than what people say about what Ron Paul Says. Paul states without equivocation that we need a strong defense in that if we go to war (legal declared war), we should go in and beat the enemy and get out. We have the means to do just that if anyone wants to take us on. What Paul is against is the idiocy of killing American citizens in illegal wars for the sake of big corporate bucks. How can you be against that? He knows that extreme Islam is against the American way. He also knows, which many people deny, that it is not wise to antagonize one who is your enemy. That should be simple common sense. Why should a country as grand, affluent and powerful as America think for one second that we need to bully other people. Let our American way of life speak for itself as we rise above the evil. Defend our way of life, but let others sink or swim in their own political soup. Rather let the people be free to run their lives and hold their community accountable instead of trying to hold other states and communities accountable. AND… quit trying to tell other countries how to live and begin living what we preach!!! Take some time and actually listen to ALL that Ron Paul says, instead of what others say he said.

    • yeah Marianne and you get islam right… Where do you get your info from.. you are a close minded person who is not capable of thinking for yourself, what you hear from others is what you take and run with, I am sure you never take it upon yourself to do your own research. It’s not the Governement the people should fear it is people like you, ignorant morons.

    • Dear Marianne,
      True, the Islamists ask us to leave them alone (and we don’t). How would we feel if some foreign nation attempted to control us to the extent we try to control the Arab world? I think we would ask them to leave us alone also – and we would be right to think that. Show me if I am wrong, but I don’t think the Islamists are complaining about Chinese influence in Arab affairs are they? China has recently become the world’s 2nd largest economy. I would say China is a rather powerful influence in the world and growing stronger, yet the Arabs don’t seem concerned about China and China certainly would not allow nor practice sharia law! But China is successfully trading throughout the world and not trying to police the world and they get less complaints. China is acting like Ron Paul says we should act with regard to foreign affairs. We have tried to be the world’s police ever since WWII, 60+ years and the world is not a very friendly safe place for us and the cost of us being the police is stiffling our economic growth. Maybe Ron’s approach is not so bad after all. And I am not just espousing what others have said!!!

    • Newt Gingrich is polarizing, a DC idea man, not a sturdy consistent leader.

      Mitt Romney is a phony. He literally says whatever the majority of his
      audience wants to hear at any given moment. If he doesn’t want to
      answer something, he evades the question, talks in circles, and
      changes the subject by attacking Obama. He’s also a PROVEN FAILURE…

      FACTS:
      Mitt Romney left Governor’s office with 34% approval!

      Jon Huntsman REFORMED healthcare, education, and taxes as Governor. PEW ranked #1 governed state.

      Now Utah is #1 in eduation spending
      Now Utah is #1 in JOB GROWTH

      Now WSJ ranked his economic plan the MOST FISCALLY CONSERVATIVE

      He left office with 88% approval! often >90% in office.
      ——————————————————

      On another note, he passed pro-life amendments. And safeguarded the 2nd amendment.

      Also, UNLIKE NEWT AND MITT, Huntsman is anti-establishment and wants to:
      -reform banking
      -end subsidies
      -end loopholes, flatten and simplify taxes
      -have large scale deficit reduction
      -reform Congressional lobbying

      GIVE HIM A FIRST LOOK!

    • It’s normal for the front-runner to come under scrutiny by the media. Knowing Newt he probably regards the challenging questions as an opportunity to set the record straight (from his point of view, of course.) It ought to be quite interesting.

      • Well, WE HAVE BEEN listening to all of his oppositions points of view for days now! They appear to be doing the same thing to Newt that they’ve been doing to Herman Cain, but Newt’s “sins” where twenty years ago.

        • There are Paul fanatics that can be rude and immature. I’m not sure I am totally behind Paul. I understand a lot of what he says. Economically, I back him almost entirely. I’m not sure about foreign policy.

          I recognize that people can change. However, Newt has has several changes that are radically different.

          One of my problems with Newt is getting paid by fannie-freddie, and that was not something 20 years ago.

          • I don’t have formed opinions on everything, but I will be voting for Ron Paul. Cain was interesting – it is a shame he got shut down for the unproven sexual allegations – I would have liked to see more attention directed at the Federal Reserve.

            There is no one else in the GOP that I can stand by. Ron Paul seems almost perfectly consistent and almost entirely in line with our founders. We need someone who believes in and will follow the constitution. The GOP hasn’t really left us with anything else. I have not been pleased with Romney or Gingrich.

  13. Question for the candidates.

    Millions of Americans distrust government and are tired of the lies and government actions to talk away our liberties and steal the future from our kids. As president what will you do to restore faith trust in government?

  14. For those who have not read George Washington’s Fair Well Address, you should! Ron Paul sounds like a carbon copy of George Washington and everything he is talking about, George Washington warned us about in his fair well address to the nation.

    If Ron Paul is crazy so are the founding fathers and George Washington.

    Read the fair well address and you will be shocked a how right on Ron Paul is about foreign policy and everything else.

    Here is a link for those who have not read it. It should be required reading for all politicians.

    Here is a link: http://avalon.law.yale.edu/18th_century/washing.asp

    Tell your friends to read it too then decide who is best for our country.

  15. Most people in America are fair Minded no matter what there race or financial situation. I have been following the republican debates and the canidates throughout this presidential cycle.If anyone with a heart of compassion for the poor,brokenhearted, sick,elderly and the outcast of our society can’t be serious about supporting anyone in the republican party.Take a momment and look hard at this party. Put aside any pre concieved thoughts about my comments.All the people i see at the debates and giving talking points for there agenda are over 90% white while America is over 50% brown. How can they speak for the american people when they themsleves and the party runs away form this fact in there talking points. I will vote for whoever can do the best for this country, the people of this country not just a select few.If anyone can prove me wrong with facts i am willing to listen. Yet even with the debate tonight you won’t here them address any problems dealing with the bottom of our society only how to defeat President oboma.

    • Are you saying that “THE BOTTOM” of society IS brown? Mr Lawrence YOU are a bigot because you see color first.

      • Denise, how would that make John any different from the blacks who voted for Obama 97% to 3% for McCain in 2008? It’s a fact that blacks and hispanics vote Democratic far more than they vote Republican. It’s the fluctuating white vote that decides elections. However, I am willing to bet that after eight years, Republicans will never win another Presidential election. It’s nearly impossible for Republicans to win New York or California right now. Texas now has a non-white majority and Florida is nearing that point. Soon those two states will no longet be able to become red states. When that happens, it’s over for Republicans.

    • Dear John,

      I hope your sole measure of diversity in America is not simply based on skin color. Such thinking keeps racial tensions high and ensures mistrust and poverty of such groups via the consequences of the very programs meant to solve inequities. By trying to make job entry easier for some or by giving subsidies to groups singled out as supposedly disadvantaged, the end result is you end up with more disadvantaged people in the group you try to help. What really helps is having more opportunity to succeed in life as individuals. I can’t motivate you to improve your skill set any more than you can motivate me to improve mine. But by getting out of your way, I can help you to maximize your own potential. That is how free markets work and they don’t cost anyone anything. Big government limits opportunities by picking winners and losers and that hurts the opportunity for each person in America. One example is Obama’s push for electric cars. Rather than subsidizing a single new technology at taxpayer expense, he should get out of the way and let the free market decide based on daily changes in economies of scale what technology combination is most cost effective from now to whenever. That would give vastly more people opportunity to create novel methods of transportation and a chosen single technology.

    • Don’t worry, Mr. Huntsman will throw the republican party over board and run third party at the first chance because that’s the kind of guy he is.

  16. Besides paying the salaries of the president and congress, your taxes also pay for highways, schools, police departments, fire departments, and hospitals. Perhaps you’d rather live in the united states of anarchy. Like Bachman herself, your opinion is not supported by facts.

    • Hey Tony, Federal taxes have no business paying for “schools, police departments, fire departments, and hospitals”. Infrastructure and the military are the only REAL federal responsibilities

  17. I suggest that people like Oregon High and Dave pay a lot more attention to the debates and look into background of Rommey and Paul and their positions. Newt will destroy Obama in a debate.

      • You do realize that there are 435 members in the house, right? You do realize that generally (with some fluctuation), around half of them are Democrat, right? You do realize that most Republicans are neo-cons who oppose the nation our forefathers intended, right? In other words, you do realize that it’s impossible to lead in such a diluted position when so many are against you, right? You also realize that all of the front runners are stealing Paul’s stances this election cycle. Go back to the 2008 debates and find me a single candidate besides Paul who opposed/wanted to audit the Fed, was worried about creating a stronger economy via a stronger currency, and wanted to abolish departments of the federal government. Now magically everyone is on the anti Department of Education bus. Perry has three departments to eliminate after paul wanted to remove five. They are afraid of Paul’s new found strength and he (Paul) will become unstoppable once he wins Iowa.

  18. Ron Paul is a very honorable man. However, the opject of this campaign is to not allow Obama another term. Newt Gingrich with his infamous knowledge of the political equation can beat the liberal group. Vote for Newt Gingrich he can beat Obama. Kindest Regards, Tommy Sparks

    • According to the latest polls in Iowa, Paul is the only one anywhere near beating Obama in Iowa. In New Hampshire, he is second only to Romney, but well within striking range unlike Newt. Kind of blows that theory to hell, eh?

    • If you don’t vote your conscience, you have already lost. If you think that Ron Paul deserves your vote, then vote for Ron Paul. Your reasoning is the only reason that would keep Ron Paul from being elected.

    • Newt is just as bad as Obama, if not worst. Big govt, anti-liberty, no principles, and bad ethical conduct. You aren’t doing the party or America justice by supporting Newt. Just Obama version 2.0.

  19. Newt has my vote! He’s the most capable of all the candidates and the best qualified to take on the loser currently occupying Pennsylvania Avenue! Truth be told, I’ll rally around whoever becomes the nominee, just to defeat this muslim sympathizing, America destroying, professional vacationer!

    • If Newt wins, then I hope you enjoy war with Iran. Hope you have lots of sons/daughters or grandsons/granddaughters to send. We’ll need them if we launch a ground invasion. Think Nam was bad? Iran would be worse.

    • I agree Denise, Newt has my vote! I been pulling for him even before he announced he was going to run. I don’t worry about his past, everyone makes mistakes. I am so tired of hearing people act like they are so perfect and do nothing wrong. Newt is the only one that can clean up the mess in Washington. He has done it. Also I might add if everyone in the current government hates him, well that makes me want to vote for him more, because we have a bunch of do nothing leaders that need the boot.

      • No one in their right mind would vote for Gingrich, you must be a complete scum bag or totally ignorant and annoyingly stupid to even consider this guy for president. Hes been stealing money from the system his whole life… amazing

    • No one in their right mind would vote for Gingrich, you must be a complete scum bag or totally ignorant and annoyingly stupid to even consider this guy for president. Hes been stealing money from the system his whole life…

  20. Ron Paul 2012 baby!!! The ONLY real answer. It’s all about the Fed; stop listening to these clowns on both sides of the aisle that no nothing except what their told to do by their buyers.

    • Bravo Stan — I don’t care what your politics are — you had the guts to actually put a last name on your post!!! Lots of cowards with strong opinions here… and everywhere.

  21. To all except the Ron Paul-bots: why don’t all you Newt bashers visit this site and get the real answers to the lies you are spewing about Newt? You are all just spewing the Liberal media talking points about Newt. http://www.newt.org/answers Newt 2012

  22. I find it hilarious as to how many people think Ron Paul is wrong on foreign affairs. Let me ask you all a question. If China and Russia got together tomorrow and established the nation of Al Qaeda in a small region of Canada or Mexico, would you all not be infuriated? Would you all not want war with China and Russia for installing our enemy so close to us? How on earth do you think the Muslims felt when the west banded together and not only establish Israel in the Arab back yard, but also arm them with nuclear weapons! You all wonder why Arabs hate us? You don’t think it has anything to do with putting their mortal enemy in their back yard?

    The other things I find funny is that we backed Afghanistan against the Russians. We have since gone to war with Afghanistan. We backed the Iraqis against the Iranians. We have since gone to war with Iraq. We backed (albeit not my force) the Egyptians ousting their leaders. They have since put the Muslim Brotherhood and other Muslim extremists in power. We aided in the ouster of Libya. Since then, a religious fanatic has come in charge of the nation and will put a more Islamic flavor on the people. It’s our interventionalism that is leading us to all these pointless wars.

    It’s self admitted warhawks like Newt and the other pawns that cause so much trouble in the Arab world. They don’t attack us if we don’t attack them.

    One last note. Timothy McVeigh. Why did Tim McVeigh attack like he did? His reasoning was based on his anti-government beliefs that arose in response to incidents in Waco and Ruby Ridge. Those were incidents of government oppression and thus, once again, get the government out of peoples lives and terror magically declines! Who would have thought?!

    And for those of you in support of the Patriot Act. We will see just how much you support it when one day you are arrested for a minor violation and are held without bail or a trial for a year or two for no good reason. Yes, the Patriot Act gives the government that power. Enjoy it. You are helping create it.

    • Well said. I’m in the military and was considering not even voting based on my loss in faith for all politics. Now I gotta figure out what the hell a primary is and how to get my vote casted for Mr Paul. He seems to be on the up and up according to people around me. It’s 4 am on this side of the world.. How much longer until this thing kicks off?

  23. Georgie Steps is a left-wing tool of the DNC. He has his marching orders from the White House. When he tries his usual attacks on the candidates I hope Newt tears him a new one. Mr. Gingrich is the ONLY candidate who has the cojones to tear apart the Socialist narratives of the moderators.

  24. Well I was a Herman Cain supporter, and just as Marianne stated in a few posts above mine, I am now a Newt Gingrich supporter. Which would explain why he rose so high up in the polls recently as most Cain supporters went to Gingrich when Cain left. I look forward to seeing him as our GOP nominee.

    However an unseen threat to the GOP would be if that blasted R.P ran as a third party member. He would probably sink us just like Ross Perot did to George Bush sr. in the 1992 elections. If the United States has another 4 years of Obama, say good-bye to the private sector and innovation brought by Capitalism. Be sure to welcome Socialism with open arms.

    • It would seem about par for the course that people such as yourself, that could not see through the lies of Herman Cain (he was only ever on a book tour—and knew absolutely nothing about any topic), would move to the next media poster boy, Newt.

      John-Luc, please really look into the true facts, the history of each candidate, their votes, their character, their motivation, and then make an educated choice.
      I ask you and every other Newt supporter to answer these questions honestly:

      Would you really support someone for President that was fined $300k for ethics violations by the House of Representatives?
      Would you really support someone for President that cheated on two different wives, while
      Would you really support someone for President that wants to go to war even if not provoked?
      Do you value the liberty that our Founding Fathers wanted for our citizens or the illusion of security most?

      Those who would trade in their freedom for their protection deserve neither.
      Ben Franklin

    • John-Luc G.

      My opinion beginning at the Lincoln/Douglas debacle, (first promoted as a debate) later named a forum, was that Herman Caine is a Foil for Gingrich and so we see the truth of it.

      It occurred to me after reading your post that if you truly value a Republican win more than you care to have the best leadership for our country, you would do better to vote for Ron Paul. Yes it makes sense.

      Ron Paul supporters are solidly convicted, so much so that they will write him in or follow him to a third party before choosing a lesser second candidate. It’s a fact that his supporters are uncompromising in their support and as such should be better used to benefit the party. A quick search on the internet and social media sites will confirm the level of conviction and loyalty his supporters have for him to be fact.

      As you justifiably pointed out, Ron Paul’s supporters are a force that could potentially sink the GOP’s chances if he were to break away, just as it will if his supporters write him in, and they will.

      It makes sense to me to vote for Ron Paul rather than permit that to happen. After all, Ron Paul is a GOP candidate, a conservative Republican, with Libertarian ideals.

      He is not a socialist, fascist, communist, corporatist, globalist, progressive, liberal, tyrant or Democrat!

  25. Newt used to be a conservative. Why is it that Bush made so many Republicans change into establishment Republicans. I thought he did a great job as speaker. Now he supports the individual mandate, the wars on anything and everything, and he supports the NWO.

    Only Dr. Paul is on the right side of these issues for this conservative, freedom lover.

    • Newt will lose in a general election. Jon Huntsman is the only one who can beat Obama and unite this country. GIVE HIM A FIRST LOOK.

  26. To: 2012presidentialelectionnews editors
    Is this the verbiage you would use if tonight’s
    debate were set up for a hypothetical field
    of six Democrat candidates challenging an
    incumbent Republican president:
    “….they are drooling at the prospect…”?
    I didn’t think so.
    HL

  27. The only person deserving to be President is Michele Bachmann and nobody else. Gingrich btw is a panderer for the Spanics ( the fake Latins) and of all the other destructive minorities who should have never been allowed to enter the USA to begin with.

  28. Isn’t anyone listening to reason? Doesn’t a Republican out there want to win the general election? John Huntsman is a conservative that can pursuade both sides of the aisle. Not to mention that he seems to be the most honest one out there.

    • hahahahahahahahahahah, keep thinking that way, John Huntsman, hahahahahahahahah, no way I could deal with that eyebrow for 4 years.

    • ABSOLUTELY! THE GOP WILL LOSE IF THEY DON’T CHOOSE HUNTSMAN!

      Newt Gingrich is polarizing, a DC idea man, not a sturdy consistent leader.

      Mitt Romney is a phony. He literally says whatever the majority of his
      audience wants to hear at any given moment. If he doesn’t want to
      answer something, he evades the question, talks in circles, and

      -end subsidies
      -end loopholes, flatten and simplify taxes
      -have large scale deficit reduction
      -reform Congressional lobbying

  29. Newt is a guy who been sponging off the American people
    for his whole life. Ask Newt about his Health Insurance plan paid by us

  30. No one in their right mind would vote for Gingrich, you must be a complete scum bag or totally ignorant and annoyingly stupid to even consider this guy for president.

  31. Denise you are the perfect compliment to “NEWT” Load, brash,ignorant and full of herself!!!!Thank God you are supporting “Newt”

  32. @Marianne

    As a Ron Paul supporter, I find it funny that you discredit his views on the middle east (you say Islam, I say that is pretty bigoted). If someone comes into your home, and takes “control”, no matter what the reason, you will grow to hate them. That is why the founding fathers wanted a non-interventionist foreign policy. It is also reasons echoed by terrorist detainees as to why they hate us to begin with. Don’t forget we supplied Al Qaeda with arms and training during a conflict with Russia.

    I might also like to add that some of the same people who demand we deal with illegal immigration fail to associate our war on drugs with the power gained by the cartels (google Zeta Cartel). If my home and government was overrun with criminals of that caliber, then I believe I would high-tail it to the next safest country. Go into any fast food joint around 1pm on a Sunday and see how many Mexican families are in their Sunday best.

    • Ron Paul is there to educate the masses. As far as libertarianism, after him there’s Jon Huntsman. The only one who can beat Obama and unite this country. He’s also anti-establishment unlike Newt and Mitt and the most successful Governor alive today. GIVE HIM A FIRST LOOK!

  33. It’s funny how you all see this as a damn game. First inform yourselves of the policies being presented by each candidate. Analyse their character and credibility. Use your senses to see who is more honest and for the people. This isn’t football. I support RON PAUL for 2012.

    • Ron Paul’s there to educate the masses. As far as libertarianism, after him there’s Jon Huntsman. The only one who can beat Obama and unite this country. He’s also anti-establishment unlike Newt and Mitt, and the most successful Governor alive today. GIVE HIM A FIRST LOOK!

  34. sadly most americans that will be voting should not be voting if you look at it through a prespective of how much they know about the issues and are they capable of deciding for themselves who is best to be president. Do they really know what is going on or do they base what they believe on what the media tells them only. Most americans have no idea what the heck is going on, they hear a story and just go around repeating it but if you are to ask them a random question about any issue something as simple as ” who is the speaker of the house” they have no freakin idea and yet these morons are the ones who go out and vote for the sake of voting. Denise you are one of these moron voters and a few others who have commented here.

    • I AGREE. WHAT YOU SAYS WAS SAID 2000 YEARS AGO BY PLATON IN GREECE, MIGHT HAVE TO ADD THAT IT´S IN EUROPE, ALTHOUGH IM SURE YOU KNOW THAT TINE. NOT EVERYONE SHOULD HAVE A WORD IN POLITICS. THE ADOLESCENS REBELLION OF THE US IS SOON OVER, MOTHER EARTH SIGHS.

      • what im saying is some ppl shouldnt have a vote. and yes, not everyone have, u must be 18, not sure how it´s in the states (im not from the us), and not a criminal. ppl should otherwise be able to make up their minds and make a rational dicision, but obviously not everyone can. i wished some could say “the cause is too important, i lack knowledge and therefor i dont vote”. btw, i hope ron paul wins!

  35. Newt is one of the most intelligent politicians running on the GOP ticket and his comment on a Palistiean state is absolutely correct. No racism involved, just the historical truth.

    • He the only one willing to tell the truth. I can’t wait to watch him tell the truth about Obama. Go get him Gingrich!!!

  36. I am so sad to read all of the posted comments. None of you bother to even spell correctly. If you aren’t paying attention to detail in your writing, how much detail are you considering in your reading and your opinions? Let’s have a thoughtful, civil response.

    • Mormor, sorry, some time I get my fingers between the keys. Sometimes I don’t know how to spell a word. Sometimes I am too much in a hurry to answer a blog to proof my paragraph. On top of that, I don’t see a spell checker here. That is my problem. However, there are a lot of people who just don’t have sense enough even to make a rational sentence, much less make a vital decision on who to vote for… Or to blog in a forum that belongs to their own party.

  37. I highly doubt Newt has to have a perfect performance to “meet” expectations. He just has to open his mouth and he wins the debate with Romney coming in 2nd as always.

  39. Newt ia self effacing low life. The only thing Newt cares about is Newt. Book deals and fame with his wife is what Newt is about. Loser.

  40. I wonder how people cannot see for themselves that these socialist anti-American stations cowtail to the Democratic socialist party. As a former democrat that has become discussed and knew when Obama was nominated that America has lost its way. I tried to tell all the young folks all over who were salivating over that illegal immigrant socialist muslim sympathizer that we where all going to suffer if obama bin laden was elected. Goes to show you immature voters won’t see the truth until its too late, then cry fowl. If Democrats were true America patriots they would come out and say we made a mistake in 2008 field a nominee and let obama know he will not be allowed to destroy America as his father wanted him to do and put this discusting presidency into the fowl history books with all the other mistakes America has made.. like Slavery, the Indian war and the civil war.

  41. I love how Rick Santorum was not mentioned above… even though yesterday Iowa’s Secretary of State endorsed him. Santorum 2012!

  42. If I was religious I would say bless you all, but I am not. I don’t agree with many of you HOWEVER you are taking an active stance and becoming involved. That is what is missing with America. Thank You All. My request . . . it is possible for the candidates to provide their plans instead of “Make OBAMA a 1 term President” I require substance, not rhetoric

  43. I hope the untied state people will not drink the koolaid again with Socialist OBAMA.This country needs a conservaty leader who knows this territory very well as the Ceo of hotels Wynn said it. To run this great nation need to be by someone who mantain the Foundation and the traditions of this wonderful nation. The nation needs a prepared executive, who knows the history of the country.Obama it has been a disaster for this grea nation. I supported Hillary Clinton because she is center democrat but Barack Hussein Obama……I will ask my self vote for him 4 for more years of what? OMG…

    • JON HUNTSMAN! He’s anti-establishment unlike Newt and Mitt, and the most successful Governor alive today, often with >90% approval ratings. GIVE HIM A FIRST LOOK!

  45. For those of you that don’t see straight, someone earlier said ron paul says what the muslims themselves say.. and that “we the christians” <—– i guess thats what you were getting at.. know better.. that is the most pathetic statement.. really.. you really went there? YOU spoke a riddle to yourself, that you yourself cannot decipher. Sad but true.. but whats sadder is i occupy this country with U.

    • Ron Paul is there to educate the masses. As far as libertarianism, after him there’s Jon Huntsman. The only one who can beat Obama and unite this country. He’s also anti-establishment unlike Newt and Mitt, and the most successful Governor alive today. GIVE HIM A FIRST LOOK!

  46. Dr Justice your ignorant like most Dems, this president hasn’t submitted a real budget since he took office, Your the one reguritating talking pionts…Pre-existing conditions, obamcare this obamacare that. Dr justice should change your name to mr pelosi…This president will hold a job creating pipeline because epa don’t want it will sue arizona because illegal immigrant unions don’t like it, will threaten boeing with sactions because unions don’t like it, always, eveytime he wants to give unions money he uses teach and public servants as scapegoats to give his union supports money to buy more votes. unions this unions that, eveytime you see him a union boss is stuck in his anus. All the friends of obama from Chicago are going to jail, they are all corrupt but of course he’s the only honest one in the mix. you people make me sick.

  47. Hey everyone, Wake up. They’re all corrupt. how else could they have gotten the money to run for president. you can only run if your rich. Are any of you rich?? I think not. so that means none of you are corrupt. If you think Obama, or paul, or Gingrich or any of them arent corrupt, you live in a world of fantasy. you just have to try to pick the one who will give to you while taking for themselves. Think back about anyone who was ever in office. None of them ever ended up sleeping in a refridgerator box. They have all done very well for themselves. have you?? NOT!!!! So, just try to pick the one who will give you some piece of the pie. Oh, by the way. Obama should have tried to repair the economy as hard as he worked to get his “socialized medicine” passed. That should have been his first agenda, not Obama care. If he fixed the economy first people might give him a second chance. Now he’s finished. Remember, once you hit people in their pockets, it changes everything.

    • Jon Huntsman is the only one who can beat Obama and unite this country. He’s also anti-establishment unlike Newt and Mitt and the most successful Governor alive today. GIVE HIM A FIRST LOOK!

    • Absolutely agree. If the GOP doesn’t choose Huntsman, they’ll lose. He’s the only one who can beat Obama and unite this country. He’s also anti-establishment unlike Newt and Mitt, and the most successful Governor alive today. GIVE HIM A FIRST LOOK!

  48. You are right Tina, there is alot of voters that voted for this train wreck of a president that did know anything about him except they thought he was funny or cute or some ignorant thing like dr justice here spews. Also socialist media squashed the fact that obama could not prove he is an American, would not investigate his religious affiliations, ingored the message he spewed that he would fundementally change America,, well he has, he has destroyed our economy, he has turned Americans against each other and has put extremist in charge of Egypt, Libya, and will soon praise Iran for getting a nuke before he gets out of the office. You watch when he leaves office he will turn radical and call for Israel’s destruction, praise Iran.

  49. Ive been following this race very closely for the past year and from an international perspective (i live in ireland but am a U.S citizen)the only candidate who makes sense and has any real understanding and knowledge on foreign affairs is Ron Paul. Ron’s problem is that he often doesnt deliver his message very effectively, he talks too quickly, he can stray off point but his central message is absolutely spot on. Unfortunately it seems alot of people are bowled over by the false patriotism of Santorum or Gingirch etc. and can’t read between the lines. Or they judge Pauls comments as unamerican. For instance the statement that the U.S brought 9/11 onto itself. Thats not only true, but looking at it objectively and logically, its painfully obvious.

  50. IT’s all the MEDIA Bar & Grill !!!

    THAT’s where they take the candidates that are rocketing upward and put them on the grill and cook them to death with negative coverage. Donald Trump was cooked on the grill last winter ! A few weeks ago – Herman Cain was burnt away on the grill. Now they have Newt on the grill bringing up all kinds of things. Remember Bill Clinton ! Slick Willie – No matter what he did he said something to make it ok. Billions in Arkansas Development, Pot Smoking but he didn’t inhale. Sex as president and that was fine with Monica – But for Cain – Cook his ass on the grill and burn out the presidential possibility. He was on track to synchronize his idea for being president and the public support was astonishing. Media Grill had to turn up the head and keep it as a headline on the news to bury all and any of the focus on the issues 100 feet underground.

    Now we will have George Stuffanopolis with his slanted questions. HE’s one of Obama’s minions. It’s like playing ping pong with the table on the peaked roof of a house. The entire game is slanted.

    • Cain’s failures didnt really have much to do with his alleged sexual pursuits…
      It was because he didnt have a clue about policy. umm, Libya, Uzbekibekibekistan.
      He fooled anyone that supported him into believing he was doing something more than a book tour. That’s all it was.

  51. They all stink. Ron is a nut and I don’t know how they ever put him in public to run. It is like watching the comedian Steven Wright but this one is the real thing and not rehearsed. Cain is Narcissistic and can’t speak English, imagine him meeting the Queen of England..I can barely understand what he says . I don’t think he can spell. He must be intelligent but he certainly is difficult to understand when he speaks and leaves off his prepositions and pleurals . I did like him at first despite that but he just started acting more like a nasty boss rather thank a leader. Bachman looks like a siamese cat . She makes this affirmation look on her face and smiles and squints her eyes. She does this after she makes a statement like she is saying, ” I did good and am proud of myself.” I liked her at first too but ugh!!! its nauseating. Then there is Gingrich who is the most intelligent one. I say that because if Mit does not say anything more at this point about what he is going to do for the country ..then he had better open his mouth soon because he is pudding in Gingrich’s hands. Gingrich is a nasty man who is trying to hold his temper and smile a lot …looks like the pillsbury dough boy..but has that Donahugh like look. That’s it…Lets vote for Donahue!!!Gingrich is scary because I am afraid he is going to get rid of social security and medicaid and I know a lot of people need it. He hasn’t told us all his plans but then Neither has Mit. I wonder if Gingrich is on medicaton to soften him up he dosen’t attack like he used to and just smiles a lot. Or maybe it is just gas.
    They are all full of hot air. Romney needs to break the ice a bit.

    • Ron Paul is there to educate the masses. As far as libertarianism, after Paul there’s Jon Huntsman. The only one who can beat Obama and unite this country. He’s also anti-establishment unlike Newt and Mitt and the most successful Governor alive today. w/ approval ratings >90% in office. GIVE HIM A FIRST LOOK!

  52. Romney=every side of every issue. NO INTEGRITY
    Newt=2X cheater on his wives, took bailout money from Freddie Mac, fined $300k for ethics violations. EVIL, DISHONORABLE, WAR-MONGERER.

    RON PAUL = SOUND MONEY, CONSISTENT VOTES IN SUPPORT OF THE CONSTITUTION, SUPPORTS INDIVIDUALS AND FREEDOM, FOLLOWS THE FOUNDATION OF OUR COUNTRY.

    Someone please tell me why people do would not want to vote for someone that supports the basis of our liberties? It’s COMMON SENSE!
    RON PAUL 2012

    • Jon Huntsman is the only candidate who can beat Obama and unite this country. Ron Paul is there to educate the masses. As far as libertarianism, after him there’s Jon Huntsman He’s also anti-establishment unlike Newt and Mitt, and the most successful Governor alive today. GIVE HIM A FIRST LOOK!

  53. Well if any of you have been keeping tabs on the republican field it is more than obvious that they really don’t want to win. This is a field of buffoons and clowns. Perry, who says he believes Science is a Democratic lie. Cain who jumps anything in a skirt and lies about it, oh and did I mention his 999 plan. It’s just 666 turned on it’s head. if you created a 9% sales tax on top of what folks in big cities already pay, that would mean almost 20% above the cost of goods, including food. You have Michelle Bachman who believes that if you elect her she’ll bring gas prices down to under a buck a gallon. Gee, I guess she was never to the job is president of the USA not King of the world. The only control we can place is on American companies Michelle, and we don’t produce all that much oil. In fact we buy most of our oil from Canada and Mexico. Oil prices are governed by an oil consortium headed by the middle eastern nations. Newt’s comment however well intentioned fly’s in the face of our national policy. The last thing we need is another idiot who thinks it’s ok to say anything. he’s yet another one of these folks who doesn’t engage his brain before opening his mouth. So you have Ron Paul who has had some good ideas but just can’t get any momentum because he’s boring. So what your left with is two candidates who can’t ever be elected…Romney and Huntsman. Neither will ever get elected because the republican base that wins them elections are Evangelical Christians. They believe that the Mormon faith is a Cult alined with the devil. This is beginning to look allot like 2008 when the RNC backed McCain a candidate who they repeatedly refused to endorse because they knew that after the actions of Bush no Republican would get elected. Then just to put the nail in the coffin so to speak the RNC saddled McCain with Super Bimbo Soccer Mom, Sarah Pailin. The RNC don’t want to win this election because the economy is so far in the crapper they don’t wan’t to be anywhere near it. It was the policies of George Bush that got us where we are. Make no mistake about that. The last three years they have done what they feel is expedient for the republican party and NOT what’s good for the country. Somehow they’ve duped the american public into believing that they shouldn’t raise taxes on the uber rich. because in some stupid alternative universe the “Job Creators” wouldn’t create jobs if we do. For a hundred years that has been the battle cry of the republican part and for a hundred years it hasn’t worked. The way it works is the rich look out for themselves just like we do. So the bottom line is this. The republicans won’t put forth an electable candidate because they don’t want the economy until it’s on it’s way back, so that they can claim that they fixed it. It is clearly the Republican view of deregulation that has created this monster. We are all suffering and bankers are taking home multi million dollar bonuses. Do you bring home a multi million dollar bonus? This thieves are getting these bonuses for screwing up the economy. and you don’t wan a raise taxes on these folks. The middle class has seen no substantial increase in financial state since the 1960’s. So now that we’ve looked at this with our eyes open we should know that Obama will be the president for the next four years. And the American public will walk through life voting for who their neighbor says to because they don’t have the intelligence to learn about the issues and make an intelligent choice. They’re just sheep being led to slaughter by the wealthiest americans for the purpose of redecorating one of their four houses this year. Maybe next year they should buy a Maserati…..Hmm what do you think? It really doesn’t matter what you think does it.

  54. That must have been when Reagan got his alzheimers …I liked Reagan but Ron Paul is a Cocoa Puff.
    ( Remember the commercial)

  55. can anyone tell me why trump is telling us to stop having china rip us off when he is making deals with China. Is that not a double standard for him?

    • Donna, Trump likes money. With Obama in office he looses money. He wants any one but Obama in office. When that happens, he gets a lot of his money back.

  56. Only a Masochistic or paid help would vote for Gingrich. I choose Liberty, Freedom, Peace, and Constitutional Leadership. I choose Ron Paul! Principles over Party, High Integrity Leadership, People over Profits. Folks the fight is between Liberty and Tyranny. At this point you are on one side or the only.

  57. If you Gingrich supporters get your own way and he gets into the Whitehouse you will wonder who to blame when we are at war all over the world and our dollar is totally worthless. You can find out who to blame by looking in the mirror. He is nothing but a Progressive on steroids.

    • frank, please get your info from some place other than left hand media. Newt’s wife divorced him. She was not on her deathbed. Your blog tells us a lot about you.

  58. I just have to say, watching all this silly, meaningless peacock-flashing between the various supporters brings a jocular tear to my eye: my colleagues and I have been having the most fun of our political lives watching Republicans sift through their terrible candidates over and over again as though a better one is gonna turn up eventually. Sorry, guys: that’s all she wrote. You’re stuck with these hilariously flawed nincompoops. All across the country, all across the world, people are laughing at you and your party. And we’ll be laughing even harder next November.

    I’m solidly behind Gingrich 2012. It will be the most fun we Dems have had in a century. Please, for the love of god, nominate this wonderful, fun-derful man.

    • The worst Republican candidate on stage tonight would be 100 times better president than Barack Obama, who has been completely co-opted by Goldman Sachs and Wall Street. The fact that you so willingly swallow Obama’s hypocrisy should cause you to recuse yourself from any comment on the debate. This is a serious discussion of who should lead our country. Why don’t you go back to promoting transgender curriculum in elementary schools or whatever you were doing five minutes ago.

  59. Our country’s government is very ill. Is there a doctor in the house? Dr. Ron Paul is the man for the job. The corporate establishment doesn’t want him because he won’t be bought and turn over for them. The media will continue to ignore him until we the people decide that ‘we’re mad as hell and we’re not going to take it any more’, and we start supporting the only candidate who understands what needs to be done to turn us around in the right direction, and is willing to do it.

    • As far as libertarianism goes, Jon Huntsman is next in line. He’s the only one who can beat Obama and unite this country. GIVE HIM A FIRST LOOK!

      • Give Huntsman the first look?! Ron Paul has been campaigning for freedom, sound money, and small government for 30 years! He is the inspiration behind the TEA Party. Huntsman as nice as he seems to be can’t compare to Ron Paul’s ceaseless campaigning for his ideals for 30 years. Ron Paul has put in the time, the thought, and he has the people behind him.

  60. Romney is legit. Newt needs to move on the way he did with his cancer stricken wife, when he left for a younger healthier woman. Class act. Mitt has my full support now.

    • Newt Gingrich is polarizing, a DC idea man, not a sturdy consistent leader.

      Mitt Romney is a phony. He literally says whatever the majority of his
      audience wants to hear at any given moment. If he doesn’t want to
      answer something, he evades the question, talks in circles, and
      changes the subject by attacking Obama. He’s also a PROVEN FAILURE…

      FACTS:
      Mitt Romney left Governor’s office with 34% approval!

      Jon Huntsman REFORMED healthcare, education, and taxes as Governor. PEW ranked #1 governed state.

      Now Utah is #1 in eduation spending
      Now Utah is #1 in JOB GROWTH

      Now WSJ ranked his economic plan the MOST FISCALLY CONSERVATIVE

      He left office with 88% approval! often >90% in office.
      ——————————————————

      On another note, he passed pro-life amendments. And safeguarded the 2nd amendment.

      Also, UNLIKE NEWT AND MITT, Huntsman is anti-establishment and wants to:
      -reform banking
      -end subsidies
      -end loopholes, flatten and simplify taxes
      -have large scale deficit reduction
      -reform Congressional lobbying

  61. All of you who say Ron Paul doesn’t support Israel are mistaken. He wants to be friends with Israel but doesn’t believe they should have to come to us for everything. They are a sovereign nation and we should be friends with them but not their parent. Besides don’t you all think you should be looking for the one who would be supporting AMERICA….
    We need the guy who is American all the way.

    • I love Ron Paul…the last time around I felt he was the best candidate….but this time we have better candidates. It’s not that Ron Paul doesn’t respect Israel, they all do. After all, Israel is the only democratic nation in the Middle East and the Middle East has said out right that they want to get rid of BOTH Israel and America.

      The fact is, Ron Paul is just fine with Iran having a nuclear bomb. His reasoning? Why shouldn’t they have a nuclear bomb, many nations do. I’ll tell you why it’s *not* o.k., Iran has said they intend to destroy both Israel and America. Duh.

      Ron Paul has a good economic plan but it PALES when you realize he’s all for Iran getting a nuclear weapon. How long would that economic plan work for us once they had their hands on a nuke? Five minutes?!

  62. Take a good look at Santorum. No baggage, intelligent, knowledgeable,makes sense. If not the next election, then in 2016.

  63. Now that most Republicans have come to the conclusion that “nobody is perfect” and every Republican candidate is shown to have a major amount of baggage, let’s reassess our goals. What is it we want? Is it to solve our countries challenges or is it only to see a Republican candidate in office?
    Anyone truly paying attention can plainly see that any effort the Republicans in Congress have made are aimed at undermining Obama. This is not what the country needs our government to be focusing on. What is even more disturbing is that the Republican candidates are a sorry sight and the idea of any one of them in the presidency is a nightmare.
    True, Obama is not perfect, but he’s smarter, more honest and better equipped to make the broad, difficult decisions needed to steer this country towards any reasonable future.

    • This is why Huntsman is the only one who can beat Obama. It’s Huntsman or bust for the GOP we’ll see if they realize this.

    • He’s the only one I’m watching the debate for. As far as libertarianism goes, Jon Huntsman is next in line, the only candidate who can beat Obama and unite this country. GIVE HIM A FIRST LOOK! His record speaks for itself, he’s the most successful Governor alive today and anti-establishment unlike Newt and Mitt

    • You are a moron. The easiest way to combat an idiot is to help them realize they have a problem otherwise they go around thinking they had useful things to say.

  65. RON PAUL for President!!!! He cares, he makes sense, he has a track record….no flip flop with Ron Paul.
    Like someone said earlier…it’s really funny how the news junkies (especially Fox) flip flop and want to vote for whoever is on top at that time on the news LOL
    Does anyone ever do research or at least watch the debate and actually listen to what Ron Paul has to say????

    • FOX has been playing part in a self-fulfilling prophecy of the front-runners. Media fail for not examing the candidates.

      I also see Ron Paul as the enlightened one educating the masses… But also, take a look at Huntsman, because as far as libertarianism goes, he’s next in line, and is the only candidate who can beat Obama and unite this country. His record:

      FACTS:
      Mitt Romney left Governor’s office with 34% approval!

      Jon Huntsman REFORMED healthcare, education, and taxes as Governor. PEW ranked #1 governed state.

      Now Utah is #1 in eduation spending

  66. You guys get what you vote for. Newt is the only person who will destroy Hussain. Before he destroys the U.S. He has the military in charge of the CIA and the CIA in charge of the military. Does anyone wonder why? He has allowed billons to be stolen and guess what, he plans to have a billion in his re-election war chest. Follow the money. Don’t get caught up in trying to destroy republicans keep there is only on way for the country to go and that is the RIGHT way/

  67. Newt Gingrich??? Are you serious? When i was little i remember my hardcore republican parents bristling about his betrayal. The guy got bought. Plain and simple. Stop treating politics like a freaking sporting event. It’s not like football where you bet on the team who is going to win.
    You vote on the person who YOU think will be the best candidate. Anything less is throwing away your vote. Voting based on who is going to win in the end is how we got all the turd sammiches in office.

    I’m voting for Dr. Paul.
    One more thing, Dr. Paul is educating us in EVERY speech and debate and appearance. You do realize even if the man does not get elected his ideas have penetrated the minds of a generation. Yes, he wants the presidency, but his campaign is MORE than that. It’s a call for us to wake up and realize we have been getting duped for the past 50 years.

    • I also see Ron Paul as the enlightened one educating the masses… But also, take a look at Huntsman, because as far as libertarianism goes, he’s next in line, and is the only candidate who can beat Obama and unite this country. His record:

    FOX has been playing into the self-fulfilling prophecy of front runners,
    saying any GOP candidate can beat Obama, and that we shouldn’t talk about Romneycare or Newt’s entrenchment in DCs ways. But a FOX self-fulfilling prophecy can’t win the General Election. The poll numbers now show that Newt and Mitt are actually losing to Obama. Jon Huntsman was blackballed by FOX, bloggers and the GOP for being rational and serving his country, but he’s just now getting a FIRST LOOK and people will realize that everything that’s wrong with Mitt and Newt, is right with Huntsman, the most successful Governor alive today.

    Jon Huntsman is the one the GOP’s been looking for. He can take down Obama and unite this country.

    GIVE HIM A FIRST LOOK!!!

  69. Which candidate is for more education and better health of Americans?
    Which candidate is respected globally (our economy is affected by the global community)
    Which candidate is well educated and speaks well?
    Which candidate has a spouse that the country can respect?
    Which candidate is young enough to handle the rigors of being a president?

    Oh look none of the Republican candidates fit these basic requirements.
    Vote Obama, he is at least working on what he said he would.

    • You sound like a brain-washed academic or a union member who wouldn’t vote for a Republican anyway. This country can’t afford to support your lifestyle at the expense of the private sector that is sinking fast.

  70. Mitt Romney looks like Mr. Goodbar on social security.

    He’s Lame and Mutant.

    He offers no more now than he ever offered in the last election in personality or exuberance.

    He will do Absolutely Nothing to this country and it will be the same as it is now as it was before. More of the same same same..

  71. Isn’t it time we tried something really different and gave the Constitutional Conservative/Libertarian an opportunity? A man with integrity, the only man with different ideas: “The radicals have been in charge way too long.” Ron Paul 2012

  72. Ask the candidates, why will they not discuss the unfair exporting tariffs between China and the U.S.? It is so heavy in China’s favor that 747 freighter aircraft leave empty daily on their way back to China? My job went to China.

  73. I have been a Newt fan for years because of the good things he has done, which is far more good than bad. Not very many Democrats can talk facts as to just why Newts ideas are so crazy. All I see is immature name calling without reason. I respect other opinions different than mine, but the mindless name calling? come on, surly you can do better than that! Look up his track record for yourself, you just might be surprised.

    • Newt’s record:
      1. cheated on two wives for years
      2. fined $300k for ethics violations
      3. etc

      please look up the page and read 4Liberty’s post and you will see why his ideas, his character, his honor, his integrity, his life are all only to serve himself and not his country.

  74. Dear fellow Americans, I am a naturalized US citizen of Iranian birth. For the 3 plus decades that I’ve been here, the greatest pride that I have of my new country is it’s Constitution. This document, coupled with the ever persevering American has made this country, the U.S of A, one of the greatest nations of all time.
    However, with the great surge of wealth and prosperity since WWII, we are now experiencing a constitutional crises as our laws, our dignity and the soul of our nation has been hijacked by corporate greed and the Industrial Military Complex. Ron Paul will restore the true American Values: Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
    God Bless.

    • Thank you Ali. I wish more Americans would appreciate the Constitution as much as you do. It is the most amazing living document in history and our govt and elite are slowly tearing it apart.
      Ron Paul is the only one of these candidates that believes in the Constitution and will work to restore it.

  75. they cant even manage to follow the rules of the debate. I highly doubt any of them will follow the “rules” of presidency.

  76. I would like to hear Newt remind the audience that Bachman is LYING about him. Who wants someone who openly lies about others.

  77. What disturbs me is the fact that there is no Obamacare it is the Affordable Health
    Care Act why don’t they know this Diane Sawyer are you kidding me SPEAK UP you are now a joke go back to your diggs in NY and Party you have lost your voice so just go.

  78. What specifically does each candidate have against the Affordable Healthcare Act under President Obama. Their criticism is usually quite vague.

  79. Did Newt really say that children in poor areas should be allowed to work part time as janitors, is he trying to get them ready for the jobs he thinks they should have in life

    • I think ABC/Geo&Diane format is presenting very poor questions in comparison to all the previous debates CNN Blitzer and the FOX Huckabee 1:1 in my opinion have been the best to date.

  80. Romney is a liar. He claims that the only thing his health care did in MA is give heath insurance to the 8% of the people who didn’t previously have it. We own a small family business and used to be able to buy catastrophic health insurance, for a very low price. We are savers and could afford to pay the $10,000. deductible. No longer however. Now we cannot afford the monthly premiums. Instead of paying $450- $500. per month we would need to pay $1400 under the current plans. We were paying $15,600 per year for one family. We could never afford to pay for our employee. Spending over $30,000. for a small business with just 2 employees is not doable. It’s just that simple. For the small business owner it is impossible. I would still be happy to take a policy with a $10,000. deductible however our controlling state allows no more than a max of $2000. deductible. How ridiculous!!!!!!! Let those who can pay have that choice and stop mandating these debilitating premiums. More people I know than ever are on some degree of state health care. You have burdened so many of the small town small business establishments… And there is nothing I can do about it. I am also required to take the subscription plan of which neither my husband nor I ever use. Again why don’t you give us a choice? After what he has put us through he would be the last person on this earth I would ever vote for. He has caused a huge financial burden on us as well as many of our friends…

  81. Almost 1 hour into the debate I must say Newt is even,firm and factual when countering talking point slurs being slung by the least informed contenders Perry,Bachman and Paul. Romney is holding up well,he’d be a great VP except the entire GOP panel’s family value assault against Newt was out of touch with reality. Very few USA extended families don’t have at least one divorced family member and life will humble,season,test and strengthen people able to learn from their ups and downs…Newt,like the rest of we imperfect humans is different today then at age 21.. Made my decision will Vote Newt in Florida GOP Primary then NEWT 2012.I also think ABC should cut the salaries of Diane&Geo even Chris Matthews did a better job then these two!

  82. I wish Huntsman were in this debate. These folks are talking in circles or skipping the questions all together.

  83. 2 things:

    1. Newt is an idiot for being arrogantly disrespectful to those who identify as Palestinians.

    2. ALL people are “made up”….including “Americans” These are social constructions, important social constructions, but nonetheless, “made up.”

  84. When will someone ask about the 2.5 million unemployed created in just the last 3 months of the last GOP presidency. One million jobs were lost in the last month of Bush/Cheney alone. That was during a time of low taxes so that doesn’t work.

    Why was an extension of the Bush tax cuts ok but an extension of the payroll tax not ok. Neither are suppose to be permanent.

  85. I do not understand why Sawyer & George are the mediators for this debate! They are Democrats thru & thru!! Shouldn’t they have mediators that are Republicans? They are asking pansy questions & don’t even appear to be very concerned about this debate. Bad choice of mediators.

  86. I like Newt, but he seems to be struggling in a debate for the 1st time.

    Perry is talking in circles, Paul is getting some applause but has little up side.

    Santorum and Bachmann make some good points but continue to appear inconsequential.

    It will be interesting to see how Gingrich answers the question about the last time he struggled financially — personally.

    I still wish Hunstman were there. He would add a good perspective to the mix.

  87. How about you going to get this economy going, job creation, and your time line? Right now, it is all about jobs. Sure, we need to deal with a local, national, and international issue, however, jobs, jobs,jobs are Number #1. What will you do about it as President and how long will it take to get us to, say, 4% unemployment?

  88. The twisted version presented of the Middle East is amazing. Why is there a focus on what Palestinians teach? People should know that textbooks are provided through and censored by Israel. Why is no one questioning what the Israels teach – they teach that Palestinians do not exist, they teach hate, and that Palestinians are at best second-class people. They have different legal processes – one for Israels and one for Palestinians. They put Palestinians, even as young as 8 years old, in jail with no access to any legal counsel. They encourage and do not prohibit Israel settlers from destroying Palestinian orchards and farms. Why shouldn’t Palestinians fight back? I see them as freedom fighters.

    • What do you think of Ron Paul? He wants to end the wars and seems the most “center” of the GOP group. I liked Obama, but he’s let me down with not following through with almost all of his promises.

      • Integrity is as popular as Freedom. Isn’t it really about “Who would I trust with my kids?”. Isn’t that what we end up doing anyway? I’ll trust the guy who hasn’t given me any reason not to, Dr. Ron Paul … Our next President!

  89. newt is finally shown for everybody to see what kind of sleaze ball and crock he is. mitt is just flip floper if somebody finds him out he just say well i did then but not now and what about that 10000 bet. ron paul nobody is trying to challenge him because he would destroy them. and talk about consistency from santorum but never mentions ron paul but just michelle is bs

  90. The only sane candidate there tonight is Ron Paul. The rest are more of the same that got us into the mess we’re into today and will only further destroy our Constitution and put us further into debt and down the same toilet Bush left us in three years ago.

  91. i wonder if i invited you down for dinner would you join me and talk to me one on one as a divorced woman with medical issues trying to make it in this day and time ?

  92. can anybody ask them about law that just passed that america has become a battle land and american citizens can be jailed without trial

    • agreed. i was hoping that would be brought up too. how can they not talk about the bill that destroys the purpose of the Constitution?

  93. Newt loses on family values, Romney loses on flip-flopping, Perry loses on temper and low IQ, Bachmann loses for tea, Santorum just loses, so that leaves Ron Paul. He has the right ideas at the right time to save this country from certain demise. Funny how he keeps getting cut off when he exposes Washington corruption… Says a lot about the media conducting these debates, doesn’t it?

  94. Newt is so volatile he will be an awful president, I can’t believe that people In this country are actually considering this man as president. He is such a dishonest man. Obama 2012

  95. we just had a COMPROMISE aggreement in NY state on 2012 taxes and it raised taxes on the rich/ My question is: Why cant we have that same type of COMPROMISE on a national level

  96. Ray, stop trolling here, go be a socialist. Newt is a joke, Mitt is a flip flop. Only Ron Paul makes any sense here.

  97. The most raging controversy that affects economy and peace, is the role of our government to push for a war empire building role. Gingrich, Romney and Santorum came out strong for continuing the same policy. and only Ron Paul was definite in going against this war foreign policy

  98. Michele Bachman is getting good points in this debate. I think Romney is shooting himself. Rick Perry is much crisper. I still think Newt Gingrich is a slimy candidate.

  99. Ask them why we can’t lower the payroll tax to maybe 2.5%, but remove the cap so everyone pays on ALL their income. I think social security is better off, and people pay their fair share

  100. I want to know who of the candidates is a member of the NWO OR Supports: the NWO, Agenda 21, the Bilderburg group. What do they each think of The new Homeland Terrorism Preparedness Bill, The Defense Authorization Act, the Secret Force, ETC ????? The NWO is the driving force behind everything obama has done to destroy his country. Now he is threatening any one who critizes him with lethal force or prison. Who of these candidates are secretly in agreement with him on any of these programs ??????/

  101. Certainly international issue are very important. That said, for the US to do all it can for our citizens and the world community, we need to be strong and that means jobs. Stay on point…what’s the GOP if elected do to create jobs. Specifics please. Time line too? How will you pay for it? No more increasing the debt either. Program cuts and tax reform can work but tell us how!! Thanks….GMoney

  102. Why doesn’t anyone ask them how come govt controlled medical insurance seems to have worked for years in Germany, Australia, Canada, etc. Why does it work for them but can’t work for us. I know when I was in Germany in 1961 they had medical way back then.

  103. Why is every comment along the lines of:

    A. Republican are idiots, go OBAMA WOO HOPE CHAAAANGE!!

    B. ZOMG RON PAUL IS THE ONLY GOOD ONE GO RON PAUL YAY

    Because of course, those are relevant to the current debate..

    • A.)Because they drank the cool aid.
      B.)Because we see the Neocons for who they are

      Who is the most conservative? The one that wants to End the Wars and the FED. That is what separates a Conservative from a Neoconservative. Foreign Policy and Monetary Policy. Nothing else is going to bring us but to the Constitution (American Ideology) and no one else is going to stop the Economic Collapse. The blood of innocent men, woman, and child are on our hands right now in the name of power and profit. Maybe some have grown accustom to it to the point they no longer see it, but us Ron Paul Revolutionaries have not. That is what is all about. Liberty verse Tyranny. Ron Paul 2012!!

  104. I wanted to watch this alltough its in the middle of the night here in europe.. but after hearing ginrich getting appluads on his israel comments and seeing abc trying to make this romney vs ginrich when its a open race.. I say good luck america and ron paul.. last debate I watch.. peace out

  105. On healthcare:

    Mitt: ON Healthcare Reform, how can this totally be left up to the States, is the rising costs of healthcare will impact the viability of medicare and medicaid longer-term?

    Newt: In tonight’s debate you indicated part of healthcare solution is healthcare savings accounts, and personal accountability. Why then did the Republican Party significantly limit the amount a person could put into a FSA in the Healthcare Reform Act as a way to increase taxes and revenue! Even a person with 5 children, will only be able to put $2500 into their pre-tax FSA to support copays, deductibles and other out of pocket expenses, prescriptions, etc. FSAs are a great way to promote preventative care and provide an option for buying into less expensive plans. I hope this limit is something you will help to reverse.

    • On healthcare, it’s because the federal government has no authority to force people to buy anything. It’s called the 10th Amendment.

  106. Ron Paul’s reluctance to engage in mud-slinging, together with his unassailable integrity, is actually hurting him in the debate. Every time someone mentions a disagreement with Romney and Gingrich, they get more time to speak. But so far, nobody has expressed a specific disagreement with Ron Paul, so he has gotten zero rebuttal time.

    • Bob Vincent, I don’t want to sound negiative, but to answer your question… no one debates Ron Paul because they all know that Ron Paul does not have the support of the Republican voters. Debating him would just be a waste of time.

  107. In regaurds to the middle class having to make up for the nation’s debt, I want a to vote for one who can re-assure us that as a Veteran’s Surviving spouse and a Disabled Veteran, myself; We will not have to have our cost of living increases to the devastating purportions that they have been cut during the Obama admisistration. I have had to sell every piece of jewelry and most of my furniture and conveniences for the sake of trying to keep my home. Obama’s one time payment of $200 does not even begin to make up for cutting our pay while gas and food prices surged to an all time high.
    If you want to address imigration, there are many of our relatives from Mexico that have been here for a long time. Many have served in the military, paid taxes and done jobs for lower pay that many normal Americans won’t do. At the same time large companies like USAA, Att, etc. , will pay people to move here from India and take our jobs while they enjoy the U.S. paying for them to get an education and benefits that some of us can’t qualify for while they brag that all they have to say is that they are seeking refuge.

  108. Iowa is ranked 17 in healthiest state in nation. Vermont is # 1. I am amazed that these moderators believe whatever someone says without question

  109. what about people who worked all their life and now on social security disability. is all i live on. i’m below poverty level you never speak about us . we are below poverty level. government raising medical, medicine. you don’t speak about us, why

  110. Oh my god, these people are so stupid, and so dishonest. I actually think it might kill some of them to tell the truth. All liars, except Ron Paul. Every last one of them.

  111. Here’s the deficit solution: Charge politicians a truth tax, every time one of them tells a lie charge them a tax on it from $50.00 to $500.00 according to the severity of the lie. we’ll be back in the black in less than a year. GO TRUTH TAX!

  112. How the talking heads think Newt won this debate is beyond me. When you change your position as the wind blows I guess it is easy to dodge the issues. Newt is not a conservative, but rather a wolf in sheep clothing. Wake up people.

  113. RE: “What a bunch of clowns! Obama 2012” I totally agree. I watched about 10 minutes of that mess and quickly changed the channel because I could not stomach anymore. I’m surprised that they would even set foot at ABC since they whine all the time about it being “the liberal media”. Palin said she would never give an interview to the “liberal media” ever again, just will do Fox from now on. She gets a terrible brain freeze with those hard “gotcha” questions that they asked her lol.

  114. Republicans say want smaller governments and seem to insult the poor (get off welfare! earn your own healthcare!) yet put their kids in the brass welfare (the military) so we can police the world putting their families on the government payroll for life. They say their freedoms are the most important thing and liberals want to take them away but then create The Patriot Act stealing our rights after starting a false flag war based on lies. They say they are pro-life but are pro-death penalty and pro-war and against stem-cell research that will save lives and doesn’t destroy life. Do they even see their hypocrisies? The only one of these prospective candidates who doesn’t make my hair hurt is really an independent and that’s Ron Paul.

  115. Rick Perry should not have been elected governor of Texas, or even be considered as a presidential candidate. All he says is a bunch of bs and would just make our country go into even more bankruptcy; there is way more to being a republican hen being christian which is basically his whole thing. “I’m not afraid to admit I am a christian.” Because being a christian makes all the difference in a presidential run.

  116. I believe RON PAUL is the winner of this debate. He is the only one who has not flip flopped, he is a true American who believes in FREEDOM and the Constitution of the U.S. The government should not have the right to get involved with our personal life. I believe Dr. Paul is the only real conservative. Michelle says she is the true conservative but she and her husband did take earmarks in the beginning of her career so whooops.
    Ron Paul 2012

  117. Just a note from my corner on healthcare. I hear MR say states rights. I disagree. If we are to have quality, consistent, uniform, and affordable HC for all US citizens and legal residents, it has to be a Fed program not by-the-state. Say Indiana has legal abortions or, say, experimental cancer treatments and Illinois doesn’t…..those in need will flock to those states like Indiana for treatment. This is just wrong. For this and many other reasons, I do support national HC at the federal level. Sorry Mitt.

  118. Newt wins again, hands down.

    As a side note… I’m glad to see so many Obama people watching. Maybe they will learn something.

  119. ABC NEWS, BIASED! BIASED! BIASED! These air heads are told before they go on air, “Make sure you emphesize these names, “Newt Gingrinch, Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrinch, Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrinch, Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrinch, Mitt Romney.”

    Be warned, every time the corporate media does this, those the emphasize the most are the WORST presidents you’ll ever have. DO NOT VOTE FOR ANY OF THOSE CLOWNS. I really hope this type of news media is drastically reformed in the future, I HATE bias, starting with firing the CEOs.

  120. To all the soft heads in the above replies….. You call the GOP candidates all sorts of names, etc. What then do you call Obama. Yeah, you libs, I know he is intelligent,
    whatever. I know a lot of rocket scientists but they have no common sense. Intelligence does not make you a leader. Intelligence tempered with wisdom makes someone
    a leader. Obama is the worst leader in all of US history. The US nor the world cannot survive four more years of this idiot. He has no experience, no wisdom, no direction.
    Don’t believe the liberal press. All these GOP candidates possess good or great qualities. Newt is by far the best qualified. He understands policy, US History, has led in the Congress as speaker. Wake up people….time is running out.

  121. When the media and status quo are pushing a candidate and saying how great he won and is doing, yet was nothing special, then it seems like this is already decided.
    Today I think Rick Perry came out really good, but there is one person who really stood out from the rest in policy that I think is the only one that will save America. If the same foreign policy and monetary policy is kept we will fall; Ron Paul sees the handwriting on the wall and even though it is not a popular message, it is right

  122. The contemptuous weird Sawyer just loves hearing herself talk. Ron Paul is th Republican Cynthia McKinney. He is an anti-American boob, certainly no conservative. No conservative would denigrate hs country the way he does. Funny, how Paul never ure toy blasts Hillary’s week performance as Sec of State or Obama’s bungling. He only denigrates the right. Newt would wipe the floor with Obama.

  123. who is a bigger career politican then newt and mitt so it is really a no suprise that they get along with each other so well

  124. The most painful part of the evening was having to listen to Diane Sawyer stagger and slur through her questions. Everyone was quite polite, though. Why didn’t G. Stephanopoulis help out? I like Newt–he’s very direct. Also like Romney. Actually, like them all except Perry, who takes cheap shots.

  125. Mitt Romney doesn’t have a problem placing $10,000 bets on a 2 cent thought, but we should trust him for 4 years with America’s economy?

  126. OK, on Social Security……..don’t mess with it. Pay the American people the benefits they signed up for. If it was mismanaged by Washington, cut discretionary programs to live up to all Americans that earned and paid for their SS benefits. It was an insurance policy we all were forced to buy in to and expect to received what was advertised. If you do anything with SS, make the changes for future insured and, at a minimum, all those who have paid in get their money back plus a market return equal to some index to be determined. Mr. President, who ever you might be next, don’t mess with the current beneficiaries of SS who are now receiving checks or those who are still paying in and expect a certain level of benefits under current law.

  127. Clearly the media is for Newt.
    He is progressive, guys!!!!!! Not a good idea. He is not a consevative.
    Ron Paul people, I gotta give you points for your passion; you are so cute! You are learning and growing. Stay in your college classes (stay away from the weed), grow up a bit,get a life and a family, and you will someday be wise! But Ron Paul’s foreign policy is naive and dangerous and just doesn’t have the charisma to lead the country.
    Romney is the one who has the brains, values, economic background, tact and wisdom to lead the free world!
    And, the “$10,000 bet”…do you not have a sense of humor. Trust me, Romney doesn’t bet, either! He was making a point, that you shouldn’t mis-quote anyone in such a venue, ABC idiots!

    • His foreign policy is just like you are…. you would be irate and incensed if someone came into your house and demanded that you change your household to their expectations. That is what we are doing around the world. You would kick the invader out…. and demand that the decisions for your household were yours and yours alone. That is what Ron Paul’s foreign policies are… stay the heck out of these countries unless they ask for help. Then let congress decide. Comprende???

    • Ron Paul’s foreign policy is the traditional American foreign policy. The current neocon foreign policy is an anti-American interventionist policy which makes Americans less safe abroad and at home. The current Mid-East Policy was cited by the CIA in the 911 hearings as the primary motivation of acts of terrorism. For some reason it was omitted from the 911 commission report. This neocon policy is anti-American and not worth one American soldiers life. That is why Ron Paul gets more active military donation then ALL the other candidates combined – think about that.

      Youtube clip of the CIA’s 911 testimony ommitted from the report because it went against powerful interests :

      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J1bm2GPoFfg

      • Ron Paul is pro-life but the only place he intends to enforce his view is for our young adults. Our children, our neighbors children, our future. Every vote for Ron Paul saves another young military person’s life!

        I support Ron Paul his vision is the big picture and he tirelessly, bravely, trudges on for us!

    • My husband, 56, & I, 48, are grown, college educated, grandparents you pompous ass! We support The Champion of The Constitution! Let FREEDOM ring!

      • Wed- didn’t seem to help Clinton, Bush or Newt or Obama… wait aminute.. when they quit, then they went to War, forgot for a minute, that booze is their high now. Say’s something I think.

    • I’m glad you set everyone straight about Ron Paul and his policies.
      Perhaps if you where more specific about what actually you appose about his foreign policies, could have some creditability.

    • Cute susie. I do that too sometimes. The old ‘enphantilize your opponent’. It puts them on the defensive if they fall for it.

      Ron Pauls foreign policy is naive and dangerous. AAAAAwwwe. Ok susie.

      I just wanta eat you up. lol.

      Although your right about the charisma. Ron pussy’d out. He was given a gift wrapped opportunity to rub Newts face in his ass and he just wagged his old man finger at him. He doesn’t want to play the game so he won’t win. Most of the time the turtle arrives at the finish line with rabbit shit on his face.

        • Haha, easy glenn. I’m all for Ronny. I’d even waste my vote on him if I were American. I just don’t buy that America is ready for a no games playa. Its a tragic reality. Congratulations for coming up for air to join the desperation motivated rational, but your not a majority. There’s a massive pig in the snake group of people who are waiting to be ‘sold’ and Ron doesn’t sell. Maybe he’s too old, but its almost like he’s lazy with respect to the ‘game’. I know that fly’s in the face of his image to Paul supporters, but that part of his game is seriously lacking and tonight’s display sunk my hopes really. If he were an actor he’d be reading the beautiful pro’s of Shakespeare through a Steven Hawkins auto voice, (that cheesey 80’s sounding one he sticks with on purpose) and expect to get a standing O out of respect for the author. Maybe deep down he knows this and he’s playing this 10 percent’er play where he wistfully hopes that if he wins on his terms as the totally unlikely lone realistic purveyor of the truth without any fanfare of aggressive focus, then he’ll be comfortable with the win and any other kind of win wouldn’t be an ‘honest’ win. Its a loser approach, and I hate to say that because I’m really pissed that he’s taken such a critical and paramount message and forced me to wonder if he’s turned it into a passive aggressive small stubborn stance on the merits of being humble.

          What can I say man. I’m smart enough and objective enough, (as a non partisan Canadian) to see that he’s completely right. But for the life of me, I can’t figure out why he’s holding back. I just don’t think he wants it enough and its either lazy, selfish, stubborn, or sadly, maybe he just doesn’t have it in him. Its one of those, and because of the dire significance of his message, I haven’t ruled out any of those reasons. It just blows me away. If I’m wrong about him and he’s honestly giving it all he’s got then maybe he just needs a bit more Machiavellian myopia in his DNA.

          Don’t kill the messenger.

    • Susie

      Perhaps a little military adventure in Iraq or Afghanistan is in order for you and your 18 year old beloved child. I’m quite sure it would broaden your mind and help with your education and I know for a certainty our troops would relish the time at home with their own beloved families.

      I support Ron Paul!
      The thinking person’s candidate.
      Peace

  128. If democratic news analysts say Grinch won and is inevitable leader… watch out. They know something we don’t

  129. Why aren’t the moderators allowed to interject when someone lies outright? Should these candidates be allowed to just make “misstatement” after “misstatement” with no correction at all? I enjoyed that none of them could cite an example of a sacrifice they had been forced to make. Just Clowns.

  130. I enjoy the debates, although sometimes the substance is a bit lacking, but please do not have Diane Sawyer as a moderator. She speaks so slowly with that monotone voice that it not only took up several minutes we could have heard from the candidates but you could see it almost putting the candidates to sleep (as well as myself). Terrible news woman who I even turn off any other time she speaks. Yawwwwwwwwn

  131. Since I tuned in late… I can’t even stand to watch the reviews since all the media people are dishonestly acting as if there were only five people debating. They are comparing the five candidates who have scored lower in the polls than Dr.Ron Paul.
    He has surged forward and the media in their yellow journalism is still ignoring him. They want the public to believe that he is not a formidable contender. In reality WE THE PEOPLE en mass are providing more support for Him than all the others. He is higher in the polls. The military support for Ron Paul is higher than all the other candidates added together. The voters will decide. Forget the media!

    • Amen RM. Dr. Paul blew em away tonight (even though he didn’t get to speak much). What the media doesn’t realize is that they are obsolete. It doesn’t matter how they try to silence him; his message is getting out via the internet and it is resonating with the public. Go Ron Paul!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  133. If REPUBLICANS do NOT like OBAMACARE on the basis of PRINCIPLES & NOT LOGIC – WHO do they think CURRENTLY PAYS for EMERGENCY MEDICAL CARE? Isn’t it you and me who chose to buy MEDICAL INSURANCE VOLUNTARILY, or ALL TAX PAYERS? Should the SYSTEM NOT be FAIR and require ALL CITIZENS to PARTICIPATE in the MEDICAL CARE?

    • What you don’t understand Jim, is that Obamacare forces his will upon free citizens; the majority of whom said NO to Obamacare. Any Bill that must be forced upon us in the dark of the night, in secret by a super majority in both houses and behind closed doors stinks like hell.

    • Just want to comment on your question about Obamacare and fairness and all people being required to do the same thing.
      In a Democracy, the majority makes the rules that the minority are made to follow.
      But the founding Fathers did not make us a democracy. They made us a republic.
      The pledge to our flag says,”And to the REPUBLIC for which it stands”
      So…In a Democracy, the majority makes the rules that the minority are made to follow.
      In a republic, each person has the liberty to decide what’s best for him and his family.
      A democracy breeds socialism and force.
      Liberty for all is better.

    • He does not deny that he took money for consultations and he readily admits that they did not follow his advice too. So what’s your point?

      • Just my thoughts on this. If Freddy and Fanny paid him to “Consult” and did not use his advice, they must be paying him for his Lobbying.

  134. I feel so sad when I read this. Are you people blind? Ron Paul is the best one out of all of them! Please just read and pay attention! I know its hard to but pull your heads out. If you are really thinking about anyone else then you are saying to me you hate America and you want to waste your vote. He has the MOST support from military out of any one else EVER. Are you crazy stupid? READ LISTEN and wise up!

    • Ron Paul has some excellent ideas, danielle, but he goes too the extremes on isolationism. Balance is the key word and balance is always required. I suspect that whoever gets the nomination will incorporate some of Paul’s policies.

      • Isolationism? By bringing our troops home? ask any American what they want, and I bet you anything they want our troops home. This is a free country and it is up to the people to make these decisions – we do not want to be there yet we are.
        Label it whatever you want, but we all know that we need to pay attention to our own country – not others.
        At least he doesn’t deny the claim, and call it something different – like Newt’s LOBBYING!

      • Padre Mike,

        With all due respect sir, I do not believe that you are paying attention to what Dr. Paul is saying in regards to interventionism. He supports free trade with other nations but, does not believe in meddling in other sovereign nations affairs. He does not believe that we should be the police state that we have become nor should we be the policemen of the world. Furthermore, he believes that it would be more productive for our troops to be guarding OUR borders rather than the borders of Iraq, Afganistan and Pakistan. Free trade does not mean that we can insinuate our government and/or our beliefs into their nations. Please pay attention!!!!

      • Nice! That word isolationist is such a bullet. Your like a kid with his dads gun. Isolationist would imply heavy tariffs on foreign imports. Ronny don’t do that. It was Fox that started misusing that word against Ron. Classic Fox play. They know what it means when they do that. Their like the geek squad starting up a club to debate whey they are much cooler than people think. Its entertaining albeit sad and transparent to people that matter.

  135. Funny isn’t it that ABC puts a poll on their website and then doesn’t mention the landslide winner…. 3131 total votes… Ron Paul got 2033 Newt next with 440. Poll only allowed one vote per IP address. This tells you of the base that Ron Paul has… FAR more than anybody else !!! And ABC says that it is between Newt and Romney… What a bunch of ignorant newscasters!!!

    • Bjewel, that just means that the Ron Paul people did not watch the debate. They were too busy blogging on the internet.

      • I don’t mean to be controlling but saying things like this only passes along misinformation. Some people may read that statement and actually believe it to be true, which it is not.

  136. Newt Gingrich is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, the New World Order ‘think tank’ that governs our State Department and sets both monetary and foreign policy. He is also an attendee of the Bohemian Grove in Northern California where the elite of government, military, and multinational corporations meet and party sharing ideas for developing and establishing an anti-American globalist world. Newt does not get my vote. My vote goes to Ron Paul, the representative of freedom and liberty and the defender of the Constitution.

  137. The amount of Internet-based support that Ron Paul is receiving is honestly borderline idiotic. What has Ron Paul done to even show that he’s capable of turning around the economy. Sure, ending wars which are already in the process of ending (Iraq) or have a scheduled withdrawal date (Afghanistan) is reasonable, but you claim say that he’ll fix the economy simply by not engaging in wars or sending unnecessary support to other nations. He’s been elected to the House of Representatives 12 times you say? What a joke! Ron Paul’s ideology is almost as radical and absurd at Newt Gingrich’s volatile rants. The only bit of credit I will give Ron Paul is that he’s the most consistent on social issues. However, it’s not a social crisis this country is in right now. It’s an economic crisis. Please use a little bit of common sense before throwing out a “Ron Paul 2012!!” or a “Go Ron Paul”. I don’t even know what to say anymore to convince you people. I feel like I’d be getting dumber by continuing this rant. Also, go ahead and flame me if you will with your simple-minded responses if you will, because I don’t really care for them.

    • I’ve commented a few times here and again, I’m Canadian so just observing here but… I’ll agree with you that predicting Ron Paul as president defies common sense, but only because American presidents have to have a more appealing charisma and Ron doesn’t play that well. Its too bad. He has everything else, it would seem, that you need in a president, and I only say that with respect to your current state of affairs. I wouldn’t vote Ronny in if it times were good. But as your country is witnessing a continually weakening dollar, and debt crisis, Ron has the most aggressive approach to saving your asses. 5 Fed dept’s shut down, a foreign policy approach that will both save billions of dollars and frankly, would be applauded around the world as a massive step towards repairing your image as a country. But image is your least concern right now. You are in a catch 22 with China, literally arming them to position themselves to sink your currency, you have an almost autonomous Fed spreading your currency so thin, that your almost begging everyone to put your bonds in their day trading folders, and basically your like those completely nuts wild card poker players on the online tables that play their hands like their some guys ex wife who got a hold of his Poker Stars password. You actually need Ron’s focused and extreme approach this one time. You guys would be my favorite reality show if it weren’t for the downside that your going to spike our interest rates up here too. Do yourself a favor and consider the little old guys ideas. He’s actually got your back.

    • Ron Paul has forgotten more about economics than the most of the other candidates will ever know. The man has written a book on economics, and yes he has served many terms in congress. He has also served in financial committees in the congress such as the “Subcommittee on Domestic monetary Policy and Technology” which he is currently the chairman of!
      Pass this off as a simple minded response, because yes I will admit it didn’t take much effort for me to know these facts. Maybe you should do a little more research before you pass him off with words other people use.

    • Trying to save a $1,000,000,000,000 dollars in the first year of his presidency sounds like a pretty good start to me!

      And I wish that you would have some commonsense to realize that the wars will never end, they’ll just shift to a new country. It’s $1,000,000,000,000 business, and you are just like the other sheep that follow blindly through the BS propaganda. How many more will need to go into poverty and die in foreign lands before you realize that your Shepard will use you for your wool and then slaughter you for your meat?

    • Ron Paul has laid out an extensive plan to turn around the economy. He wants an open audit of the Federal Reserve. He wants to eventually end the Federal Reserve and return our currency to the gold standard, thus strengthening the dollar. He wants to cut the Federal Budget by a TRILLION dollars in the first year of a Ron Paul Presidency. He wants to cut foreign aid to countries that don’t even like us. He wants to end the government funding of the war on drugs. He wants to end government regulatory policies in many fields, and along with that comes savings from the bureaucracy that must be in place for those regulations. He wants to cut spending to our military (and on this one, I have a note, if I may be allowed) :

      I am in the military. I am a Blackhawk Crewchief in the United States Army. I see, first hand, the waste that goes on in my division alone. Have you been to Afghanistan? Can you tell me why we need to pay contractors $100,000 a year to do a job the American people have already spent their tax money on to train a soldier to do, along with granting him the benefits that we as soldiers have earned? I’m not just talking about cooks, admin, bus drivers, etc… but mechanics, pilots, even the infantry??? The military can and will make due with far less money than we are currently getting. The Osprey was a joke, the Navy, Air Force, and Marines do not need a new multi-billion dollar aircraft, and the entire Department of Defense does not need civilian contractors doing soldiers’ jobs. THAT is what Ron Paul wants to cut.

      These ideas of his, along with his truly conservative non-interventionist foreign policy, WILL save Americans billions per year, and one trillion his first year. What other candidate can claim his numbers?

  138. Quite frankly, I want Newt as President because after Obama’s disasters we need someone who knows precisely how inside Washington works and who can hit the ground running and not have to go thru a learning curve the such as Obama has yet to master. We also know all of Newt’s foibles and obviously we’ve all done things that we would not like to be seen in the light of day and I certainly opt for forgiveness and balance. And I really want to see Obama try and debate Newt. Obama will need to go to Walgreen’s after the debate and purchase one of those new 75 cent replaceable plastic rectums.

    I am very disgusted with these liberal news media types who are more interested in is starting cat fights between the candidates and asking loaded questions.

    • Newt is the smartest man in the room. In addition he has a stunning ability to see the big picture & in doing so understands the root cause and then knows, I do think, the best solution. And he knows how Washington works. I am constantly impressed with his ability to debate, his grasp of very wide range of issues and the speed he can reply with an authoritative voice along with the salient facts.

      • Newt is a good debater, that much is true. My issue is with his track record. He is not a stable individual, he has turned about-face on several issues over his career, has shown little to no humility or self-control, and does not believe in the rights guaranteed to us by the very constitution he is hoping one day he will swear to uphold. Mr. Gingrich will not get my vote and I would be ashamed of my fellow citizenry if he indeed became president. He is a politician, pure and simple. That, my friend, is unfortunate.

  139. After the debate they mention every candidate except Ron Paul! Ron Paul was the colossus over the others in this debate. He completely dominated and was applauded 5 times more than the others! He complete destroyed the others in this debate and ABC knows it but yet they lift up Newt like He’s something. Oh My GOD! We are in the twilight zone people.

      • It’s all in the eye of the beholder except for the media’s studied dismissal of a candidate running third in New Hampshire, second in Iowa, first in financial support from military personnel, first in campaign energy, and first in having seen this economic meltdown coming and tried to prevent it. That part is a fact. It’s also a fact that if the talking heads could find a way to take him down a peg, they’d mention him; when he performs well, he gets the silent treatment.

        In the eye of this beholder, Paul is also first in sincerity, originality, and economic expertise. It bears repeating: he saw this coming. He warned about it. Show me the tapes of Newt Gingrich warning us that the housing bubble was dangerous, in 2002, or of Mitt Romney explaining how the federal reserve constantly kicks all the government’s financial woes down the road to the next generation, in 1998, and maybe I’ll think about changing my vote. Any other candidate will perpetuate the same failed Republican _and_ Democratic establishment failures. This is a critical election, and we need someone who breaks the mold. Looking at this field, Ron Paul is obviously that man.

  140. Where is the beef??
    I would like to have heard the candidates talk about solutions to Social Security and Medicare. The moderaters would rather hear about Pauls’ ads on Gingerich, Bachmans’ ads on Gingerich and when the Palestinians’ were formed!
    Do you really think that Trump would a poorer job?

  141. I thought Newt was very good, but not as great as usual, but the opinion after the debate said he won hands down. I guess he did better than I thought. Newt was put on the spot by the commentators with the family value questions. It was obvious it was aimed at him. Newt answered well and they (the commentators) were put in their place. I am glad Newt told everyone that the so called political baggage and Freddie information was just not true. However, it seemed out of his norm to attack about Mit not having a political career only because he (Mit) lost an election. In addition, I have thought the Republican detractors in the ads this week should fear Newt, because they turned their back on him 20 years ago, when they should have stayed loyal to him. Fox, this week, brought out that it was Nancy Palosi that was one of his accusers. That all the political things Newt was accused of was found to be untrue except for one item… and that item was later dropped. That proves the accusations were purely political driven by the Democrats. All in all I still support Newt.

    • Your absolutely correct B. Anderson. Just like many people believe the lie that Newt took divorce papers for his first wife to sign as she was dying of cancer. It was the wife who was divorcing him and she’s still alive. Newt had the character not to deny the false charges and it was his daughter, after getting permission from her mother years later, who told the true story.

  142. Why is it that the Major networks do not take any one other than the front runners SERIOUSLY
    specifically Ron Paul, who got the least air time of anyone on the stage tonight.

    Why would ABC allow the time consuming bantering back and forth of Mitt and Newt which cut into the time of
    the responses of other candidates.

    Once again all the candidates did not get equal time. This happens every televised debate.

  143. Is there a place that is posting the full debate online? @Abc is of course seriously dropping the ball here. Would love to be able to watch it.

    Thanks, get at me

  144. A few things I wanted to say about tonights debate.

    1) Ron blew it unfortunately. He had a chance to decimate Newt on the ‘hypocracy’ question and he just turned into a nice old man delecately reprimanding a kid caught with his hand in the cookie jar. This is why he won’t win. I’m actually kind of pissed at him or his handlers.

    2) Mitt blew it with Newt on the back and forth when they were talking about Newts Child labor laws among other things. I so wanted someone to make the point that the law wasn’t about preventing poor children from being able to make money. It was all about preventing people from abusing the option and taking advantage of them. No brainer. Without that mentioned, you could have just said “Hey, I got an even better idea. Lets lower the minimum wage. And lets raise the maximum retirement age. Lets fuck everyone and call it a solution.”

    3) Bachman did some nice work. I wouldn’t vote for her, (publically pro torture – What a dumb chick. Everyone knows you do that shit under wraps). But she was the most effective at quelling the Newt/Mitt blinder fest.

    4) Santorum is that guy who’s drinking your beer at 3 am when everyone has left the party, and still smiling and trying to strike up a conversation. He’s gone in a week.

    5) Newt just loves the lime lite. I enjoy watching his debating skills. He’d be fun to debate against. Burn for burn, little dramatic pauses. He plays to win and he’s entertaining, but I wouldn’t put him in charge. He’s got blinding ego and his love for the power taps his judgment to the extent that he makes those retarded comments about Palestinians not being a real people. You gotta be seriously distracted by yourself to make that level of screw up. He’s got the personality of an entertainer. You gotta have huge ego to maintain the illusion that people liking you actually matters, and you gotta think people like you to be entertaining, but that’s it. When you’ll need him to focus, he’ll fuck up and spend the rest of his term rationalizing his position. He’s a suckers vote. I call guys like that Lackey magnets. I don’t suffer them.

  145. What you all seem to be missing is that “ANYBODY” is better than what we have. To go at each other is playing into Liberal hands. If we end up with a third party candidate will do nothing more than ‘guarantee’ Obamas re-election. We must focus on Obamas dismal record. All the candidates offered are way above what we have. Focus your energy on the real problem, four more years of what we have.

  146. @Jacob Hicks Thankyou so much, first of all, for serving our country. And Thankyou so much for your post here tonight & for supporting Ron Paul. I only hope & pray more americans will pay attention to Ron Paul & what he really stands for because then we the people will finally have a government “for the people, by the people etc….

  147. I am amazed that michell B would stand on that stage and speak of the palistian people telling there children to hate jews and she so tells her people to hate gays in this country – what a stupid b****h she really is

  148. The amount of support Ron Paul has on the internet doesn’t seem to get replicated in the actual polls. I have a feeling that he is the best candidate that this country has right now to be president, but sadly, he seems to lack the charisma, media support and big money to go on. One must applaud his sheer tenacity and for that alone he ought to be given a chance.

    I mean, if proven corrupt politicians like Gingrich, and flip-floppers like Romney and even “my-brain-is-pea-sized” Perry can be front-runners, then I guess this passionately honest and conservative 75 yr old should be given his due of the limelight too.

    • The fact that Paul doesn’t get much love from the press is a big plus in my book. Polls in Iowa and New Hampshire show him in the top-tier, and he was at 12% nationally in the latest Fox poll. It’s not unreasonable to think he can win.

  149. All I know alot polls reset because Ron Paul was winning in all the polls and there was one poll you could only vote for Romney, Newt or other. Last I checked other was winning. Anyway there is more followers then the polls show that are voting for Ron Paul. 20+ years never given up on us and trying to beat the big bank cartel to get in office and save are financial futures. They will try to rig the election I hope they have eye witness lawyers and video cameras at the counting spots because there going to be a scam. Please Ron Paul have good lawyers and eye witnesses for the counting of your votes. Because the numbers show you have a huge support for the GOP. The main media keeps rigging the numbers not showing the truth!

    • Last election, immediately after the primary in NH, the Boston Globe had on their site a list of all the votes for the candidates by county or town.
      Each column had a candidate’s name at the top. I remember that the Paul votes were large numbers like 1500, 1207, 1076…etc Right next to him was John McCain whose numbers were much lower. A couple of hours later I went back to that site to look again and they had been down with a computer glitch temporarily. When the list came up again, I couldn’t believe that the Paul numbers 1500, 1207, 1076 etc. were now in Mc Cain’s column.
      So yes, there is fraud in the elections.
      Also there was a programmer who appeared in front of a Senate sub committee (I believe) and testified that yes programs can be written to shift votes in a voting machine without detection unless you had a specific “key”. Both these above issues were documented in you tube videos by other people if you care to search for them. Sorry I no longer have the links.

  150. When thinking about polls, it’s useful to remember that a lot of us younger voters don’t have landlines and aren’t called by polling companies. Ron Paul also has an awful lot of support in the military, and I don’t think people deployed overseas are included in the polls.

    • Nathan

      I wouldn’t be considered young but I don’t have a landline any longer either. Significant numbers of people today across all demographics have opted out.

  151. It occurred to me that if you truly value a Republican win more than you care to have the best leadership for our country, you would do better to vote for Ron Paul. Yes it makes sense.

    Ron Paul supporters are solidly convicted, so much so that they will write him in or follow him to a third party before choosing a lesser second candidate. It’s a fact that his supporters support the candidate above the party and are uncompromising in their support for him and as such should be better used to benefit the party. A quick search on the internet and social media sites will confirm the level of conviction and loyalty his supporters have for him to be fact.

    As many have justifiably pointed out, Ron Paul’s supporters are a force that could potentially sink the GOP’s chances if he were to break away, just as it will if his supporters write him in, and they will.

    It makes sense to me to vote for Ron Paul rather than permit that to happen. After all, Ron Paul is a GOP candidate, a conservative Republican, with Libertarian ideals.

    He is not a socialist, fascist, communist, corporatist, globalist, progressive, liberal, tyrant or Democrat!

  152. Amen! Nice post!! Ron Paul is the only honorable man in the race and despite what the newsmedia says, he can WIN!! It is about time that we put someone honorable in the oval office!!! We must give him some help by removing democrats and RINOs from public office on the local, state and federal level. We cannot be apathetic. We must get out there and get others out there to VOTE!!!

  153. Ron Paul is a smart man & he is right on many issues. “Ron Paul supporters are solidly convicted”… true but there are not enough to get him the nomination much less beat the current occupier of the White House. Any break away from the GOP will only guarantee that “O” will win again. I understand that RP has a very loyal following but if he wants to guarantee that our country continues on the path we are on now he will run as an independent.

  154. Ron Paul’s numbers are hard to estimate and probably impossible to count but make no mistake his numbers are enormously significant and potentially enough to throw the election, this shouldn’t be too casually dismissed. As anyone can see who has followed the debates on this site alone the RP supporters are not a minority by anybody’s count. What I see here is a significant number of decided and staunch Ron Paul supporters with the rest primarily divided among Romney, Gingrich and undecided, with the rest scattered among the other candidates. Based on what I observe I don’t think it’s wise by any means to assume he hasn’t got enough voters.

  155. RM

    Yes RM I have that link regarding the programmers testimony and will post it later if someone else doesn’t do so sooner.

    It’s a very important video! In addition I think the best way to protect our vote is to do it on paper, it’s easy to register for absentee ballot and hand deliver it if possible, in sunny SoCal it is. I refuse to vote electronically.

  156. RM

    Watch the entire video for the clincher at the end, the hearing was in 2000 but so relavent today, protect your vote, vote absentee or punch card only!

    Programmer under oath admits computers rig elections
    http://www.youtube.com
    http://youtu.be/1thcO_olHas

    Software programmer says US elections are rigged and that US Representatives tried to pay him to rig their election vote counts. Thankyou to TheTruthPusher

  157. Don’t settle for second best. Dr. Paul can WIN! The news media is against him. They are the “gate keepers” Do not be discouraged. You must FIGHT to get an honorable man in white house!!!! Ron Paul is our only chance. The lord sent him and you should vote for him if you want real change. Hope and Change is what this president promised but, after doing the research and now…seeing what it is that he proposes .. The programs will give you a bit of change in your pocket but rob you of the dollar bills. In the words of Eddie Griffin: “Think! It aint illegal yet.” Throw the bums who advocate Keynesian economic theory to the curb. It didn’t work under Wilson, FDR or any of the others that came after these fools and it aint gonna work now. We need real solutions to the problems that America faces and Ron Paul has the answers!!!!

    • Thanks, J Moore. Now I know why you start your comments with “Amen”.
      There is Someone who is in control of it all.
      Also, DR Paul’s supporters are many more than people think.
      Dr Paul speaks the truth and is a man with good character.
      “You can do nothing against the truth”
      RM

  158. The news media and those in con gress and those in the SIN ate will be very surprised when they are no longer in control. A Ron Paul win = a loss of jobs in the government. A Ron Paul win = an Audit of the federal reserve. A Ron Paul win = a reining in of the governments ability to insinuate itself into EVERY FABRIC OF OUR LIVES! It is no wonder that the gatekeepers (the newsmedia) are fighting tooth and nail to keep this person (Ron Paul) down. I say Fuck YOU to all of the elites! And … from the zombie movie Night of the living dead… “We are coming to get you Barbara.” I am sure that I will be found out by going against the grain and held without bail in some dark dungeon but, what the hell…………..Read this and tell yer neighbor. Fuck all of those who capitalize on Socialism. Fuck all of those who employ a police force to stifle a voice (you may or may not agree with it but.. under the constitution of the U.S., that voice is to be heard.) Fuck all of those who enforce laws who go against the Constitution. This will not set well with my friends who are law enforcement agents. I say to you…quit! You will come up against me when shit hits the fan and your “star” will not mean dick.
    An unjust law is just that…unjust. If you attempt to enforce it, you will come up with a problem beyond your control. It is coming to that and Brothers, you best believe that you will become a target. Anyone who wears a star will be fair game. Open season is about to commence. Beware!!! You have become tax collectors and we are tired of being robbed by you.

  159. Wrong!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The news media lies! Do not believe this. If everyone will vote according to their knowledge instead of the marketing by the newsmedia. RON PAUL will win in a landslide against a nappy headed marxist fool. Want communism? vote for the nigger in the oval office and the dipshits who suffer from rectal cranial inversion in the house and senate with a “D” beside their name. Want more bullshit? Get the activist judges who have “hon” by their name and are anything but honorable. Fuck these assholes! Those who wear the star also must be accountable. Fuck with us and you will be fucked hard. The time is now to quit sniveling and put honorable people into positions of power. It is time to eliminate laws not make new ones. It is time to live free…………or die. I prefer to live.

  160. Are u just mad or just plain stupid. Not stupid in the sense of education but real life. you couldn’t have grown up in diverse town or city. The tone of your words speak towards your Ignorance of reality and just plain comman sense. People in 2011 are Smarter than those of 1911 we just don’t by into racist comments by mad people who can’t stand for anybody who may be diffrent from them or thinks diffrent from them. My advice to you is” Pray” and if you are a republican, I”m sure you are a chirstian ( a requirement ).

  161. Ron Paul is a staunch conservative, deeply principled, impressively consistent, a foe of big government and it’s entrenched elite beneficiaries in nearly all its forms and a man of ideas rather than of party.

    I support Ron Paul 2012 and no other.
