MickeyRaptor: Santorum wouldn't be singing this pro-Bain tune if they had shut down his grandfather's coal mine.

and stole his pension.

can't we would have alcohol poisioning in like 30 seconds
2012-01-23 09:29:42 PM  
Goddamn, Newt's got huge balls just to attempt this spin.
2012-01-23 09:29:50 PM  
Oh horrible.

Someone just sent me a link to something called "blue waffle".


2012-01-23 09:29:56 PM  
So really, this is just the two of them talking while Grandpa and Frothy sit in the corner?
2012-01-23 09:30:02 PM  

what_now: That is never going to be accurate. NEVER. If you make more than 96% of the country, you are not in the middle, REGARDLESS of where you live.

Ignoring things like our property taxes being higher?
Our gas being higher?
Our oil heat being higher?
The prices in our stores being higher?

If you live somewhere where things cost more than a lot of the country, it turns out that you need more money to get by than other people in states with lower general costs. I fail to see how that is inaccurate.

Also, we make nowhere near that combined. I just see that as a good number for us living comfortably, rather than struggling.
2012-01-23 09:30:08 PM  
Soooo this is the Romney/Gingrich debate. Why did they even bother with the other two?
2012-01-23 09:30:30 PM  
here we go...........
2012-01-23 09:30:40 PM  
HAHAHAHA. This debate, man! THIS DEBATE!
2012-01-23 09:30:44 PM  
First time I've watched one of these. This is delicious, they're tearing each other apart jesus christ
2012-01-23 09:30:48 PM

I am just waiting for Gingrich's temper to blow.

He just came really close....
2012-01-23 09:31:04 PM  
On some level I'm rather enjoying Romney calling Gingrich out on his bullshiat.
2012-01-23 09:31:11 PM  
I didn't lobby them hee hee hee.
2012-01-23 09:31:11 PM  
Newt brain freeze

m3000: Soooo this is the Romney/Gingrich debate. Why did they even bother with the other two?

Because that's what the TV audience wants to see.
2012-01-23 09:31:19 PM  
Newt: What's the gross revenue of Bain Capital
Mitt: It's substantial, but it's irrelevant.

Mitt's still coming off as hiding something, but Newt is coming off as a COLOSSAL douche.

AKTurkey: bobbette: [ image 376x490]

I think Americans understand that I didn't inherit anything, I worked for everything I have.

I'll give her a pass; she gave us a sex tape. What has Romney given us?

Paris Hilton is easy, but Mitt Romney gave us the company that gave us the easy button, AMERICAN HER. Also a scandal-ridden Olympics that were widely nicknamed the "Bribery Olympics" outside America.
2012-01-23 09:31:36 PM  
This would be better if they all wore festive hats.

Newt lectures Romney. It's a smarm-off
2012-01-23 09:32:03 PM  
Rrrowr! Cat fight!

2012-01-23 09:32:05 PM  

dletter: "We lower everyone's capital gains tax to 0 and hope they create more jobs"

Yeah... keep hoping.

And when that doesn't work, they'll go back to attacking burdensome regulations, oppressive unions, and job-killing minimum wage laws.

Funny thing is that Caterpillar's trying to bust a factory in southern Ontario to accept a 55% wage cut, pointing to lower wages in... the US.

The job creators won't create jobs until they cost as little as the average Asian "export processing zone" job - next to nothing.

What do you think will happen next?
2012-01-23 09:32:11 PM  
2012-01-23 09:32:11 PM  
Newt, just lie. Just lie and lie and lie. The republican's won't care. Just lie and deny and spin and speak really loudly and no one will care about facts!

//come on Newt
///Obama definitely doesn't want to face you. Nope, not at all.
2012-01-23 09:32:12 PM  
Newt is ABSOLUTELY RIGHT about paying for insulin and Lipitor over dialysis and surgery. AB-SO-LUTE-LY.
2012-01-23 09:32:12 PM  
Let him have it Kodos!
2012-01-23 09:32:15 PM  
shiat, OH NEWT hes DOWN! ONE.....TWO......THREE....ok hes back up. Can you see son, how many fingers am I holding up? Ok FIGHT!!! Romney lay off his nads!
2012-01-23 09:32:20 PM  
Sissy slap fight in 28 minutes.
2012-01-23 09:32:24 PM  

m3000: Soooo this is the Romney/Gingrich debate. Why did they even bother with the other two?

Although, Santorum sits back and lets them bark at each other, says some mostly non-controversial things so far... he may seep up towards the top if people get sick of Romney and Gingrich attacking each other.
2012-01-23 09:32:57 PM  

hutchkc: Flatulent_Flea: Mittens sure stammers when he starts talking about his taxes.

he always stammers/stutters when he is about to lie/dodge

Is he getting that stupid smug smirk on his face and doing that forced condescending laugh that sounds like a can of rusty bolts going through a paper shredder?

I think Obama's ads should just be 30 seconds of Mitt making his troll face with his nails-on-a-chalkboard laugh.
2012-01-23 09:33:01 PM  
Yes, Newt. Everyone has the right to march right into the Capitol and tell people what to do. I'm going to try that tomorrow. Let's see what happens.
2012-01-23 09:33:02 PM  
Newt is getting pretty damaged here. Romney came in with his boots on tonight.
2012-01-23 09:33:04 PM  
Gingrich is totally gonna take a poke at Romney. =D
2012-01-23 09:33:05 PM  
Mitt has his flag pin of bullshiat deflecting +5 on tonight
2012-01-23 09:33:12 PM  
2012-01-23 09:33:21 PM  
Oh man, they break their biatch slap party??? Damn that was awesome
2012-01-23 09:33:28 PM  
Saved by the bell. The Taco Bell, as it were.
2012-01-23 09:33:28 PM  

video man: orclover: This is lame, give them knives and 10 hits of acid apiece.

Boring, give them PCP. Lots and lots of PCP.

Hose them down with waterguns full of DOC, sit back and watch.
2012-01-23 09:33:29 PM  
Medicare part D????????
The Big Drug Company gimmie that we can;t negotiate drug prices
Newt is touting?
2012-01-23 09:33:30 PM  
Is Newt really promoting preventative health care at a reasonable price?

Also, are they really discussing the conflict of interest issues while both receiving absurd amounts of money?
2012-01-23 09:33:33 PM  
Someone should ask these nutjobs if they think it's OK to slaughter the family pet of a political opponent.

/somehow I have a feeling Mitt would think so. Just tie it to the roof of a car first.
// Just want to hear the animals in the audience hoot and holler "YEAH"
2012-01-23 09:33:36 PM  
Dammit Brian, haven't you ever heard the old adage of not interrupting your opponents when they're making a mistake (or trying to kill each other)??
2012-01-23 09:33:42 PM  
Newt is saved by the bell ... he's got 60 seconds to get his feet under him before the next round
2012-01-23 09:33:43 PM  

Ricardo Klement: Newt is ABSOLUTELY RIGHT about paying for insulin and Lipitor over dialysis and surgery. AB-SO-LUTE-LY.

Then I wonder why he is against PPACA.
