    I’m just going to be over here watching The Tudors. Last season. Holla if they start shooting each other!

  2. Joanne Christian says:

    You meant the wives huh?

  3. cassandra_m says:

    For the shooting? Nope — the debaters! Demonstrating their commitment to the 2nd Amendment on live TV….

  4. puck says:

    Where can I see this debate – is anybody still bothering to broadcast them?

  5. pandora says:

    Santorum going after Romney (by name) right out of the gate. Romney defending his CEOishness.

  6. pandora says:

    Newt going after Romney on Bain. Newt asks: “Where people better off or worse off” after Mitt and Bain. Pow!

  7. pandora says:

    George Steph. asking Romney to validate his job creation claim and if he’s counting his losses in his #s. Mitt says yes. Hmmm…

  8. pandora says:

    Hunstman: Take a look at what “we” did as Governor for our states.

    Romney under constant attack and we’re only 12 minutes in. Ouch

  9. pandora says:

    Santorum zings Paul.

  10. pandora says:

    Paul attacks Santorum – doing the job for Mitt.

  11. pandora says:

    Which makes Paul an idiot.

  12. pandora says:

    Perry finally gets a question!

  13. pandora says:

    Republican candidates are so stupid. Fighting amongst themselves instead of going after the frontrunner.

  14. pandora says:

    Onto Commander and Chief and National Security…

    Bomb, bomb, bomb Iran?

  15. pandora says:

    Romney pivots away from the crazy people on the stage and focuses on Obama. He’s amazingly clueless about foreign policy.

  16. pandora says:

    Perhaps you should check in on me in an hour, DD?

  17. pandora says:

    Uh oh, comment jumping. My comment should be after DD’s.

  18. Delaware Dem says:

    I am watching the Lions-Saints game and following the debate on Twitter. I don’t know how people can watch it live. I would probably kill myself before long…

  19. Delaware Dem says:

    jaketapper: what’s the thinking in not “contrasting” with Romney? tick tock, my friends, tick tock.

    Completely agree. These Non-Romney Republicans are horrible politicians

  20. pandora says:

    Hey Tea Partiers, start learning to love Romney. He’s gonna be your guy.

  21. pandora says:

    On to social issues – banning contraception.

    Mitt can’t image it happening. Treating the question as ridiculous. Smart move.

  22. pandora says:

    Santorum stumbling. Avoiding the contraception issue

  23. pandora says:

    Here we go… gay marriage.

  24. pandora says:

    Huntsman supports civil unions, but not gay marriage.

  25. pandora says:

    Santorum’s turn on same sex adoption. Says it’s a state issue. He’s dodging.

  26. pandora says:

    I am so disappointed. Newt is all talk. I was promised action, damn it!

  27. pandora says:

    Newt scores applause with the “war on Christians” theme.

  28. pandora says:

    Perry gets asked a question, ignores it and switches to gays and the war on god. South Carolina here he comes!

  29. pandora says:

    Oh my. Perry says he’d send troops back to Iraq. Says we must stop Iran from moving back into Irag. WTF????

  30. pandora says:

    Pay attention to these guys (except Paul), voters. War with Iran is on their agenda.

  31. Jason330 says:

    Santorum is spoiling for war with Iran. These guys are nuts.

  32. Jason330 says:

    Fred Thompson is running on the Reverse Mortgage issue. I like how he is taking the high road.

  33. cassandra_m says:

    There’s no shooting, no blood on the stage yet? C’mon!

  34. pandora says:

    Let me just say that ABC sucks.

  35. Jason330 says:

    I know. These guys sure hate govern,ent though.

  36. pandora says:

    Unchallenged? Like Mittens claiming that Adams wrote the Constitution?

  37. Jason330 says:

    I’m hating that this nonsense is all going unchallenged.

  38. pandora says:

    At the end of this debate everyone on that stage should just concede to Romney.

  39. Jason330 says:

    Has anyone of these guys ever named one of the onerous regulations that are choking off business?

  40. Jason330 says:

    Nobody has laid a glove on mitt. Maybe they get that it is over.

  41. pandora says:

    Seriously? That’s it? I want my 1 hour and 43 minutes back! No jobs plan. No health care. No immigration. Thank god we spent all that time on condoms and diaphragms.

  42. John Young says:

    Awful. All of em.
