I don’t normally come across fantastic headlines across the web but this one about Newt Gingrich’s South Carolina Primary win was concise and bold just the way I like my headlines. Whoever wrote this Huffington Post headline did a great job. Well done!

I couldn’t say it any clearer than that!
Texas Governor Rick Perry wants to be President of the United States and he may have been told and shown a clear path by his strategists on how to get there but these debates clearly highlight his weakness, he doesn’t know how to efficiently articulate his points when he’s standing toe to toe with his opponents.
Tonight’s Fox News/Google Presidential Debate clearly points out Gov Perry’s shortcoming. I don’t know how he prepares for debates but as a former debate captain he would not be on team! He doesn’t know how to get and keep a debate crowd, which is different from a crowd on the stump on his side and he struggles continuously on how to answer the moderator’s question without undercuting the main issues that his campaign is running on.
While Former Governor Mitt Romney, although still very robotic, gets more and more human with every debate and yes I am really saying that Perry just gets worst. Romney comes prepared and he attacks Perry from all corners but what is even more important is that he looks natural doing it. He actually seems to like the fact that he has a real opponent. Perry gets on stage and tries to maintain his positions and then crumbles and stands around with this plastic smile that’s almost worst than George Bush!
I’m shocked that he is as bad a debater as I have ever seen on the national stage.
The other candidates all had their moment but I think the best line of the debate was from former Governor Gary Johnson who said that his neighbor’s two dogs have created more shovel ready jobs than this administration. That was the best line!
And one of the worst moments; the booing of a gay soldier Stephen Hill, by an audience member who asked Rick Santorum about repealing, “Don’t ask don’t tell.”
All the other candidates will continue to run until their money runs out or until debate organizers stop inviting them to participate. I don’t see anyone emerging to threaten Romney and Perry’s front runner status Ron Paul is going to hang in there for third place but once again the battle remains between Mitt Romney and Rick Perry.
There’s not much to really write about after the GOP Presidential Debate at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California a few hours ago. I give the overall debate a 3 on a scale of 1-10 with 10 being off the hook and 1 an absolute bore.
Current GOP front-runner and Texas Governor Rick Perry won. Well, he won by default. He won because none of the other candidates could actually land a political punch that didn’t seem contrived and insincere. When Romney and Perry attacked each other’s job record, early in the evening, the entire exchange between them with each pointing out that previous Governors Michael Dukakis in Massachusetts and George W. Bush in Texas were the real job creators in their states it seemed almost childish.
In addition, when Representative Ron Paul attacked Perry for not being nearly as conservative as he says he is, Perry accused Paul of betraying Ronald Reagan’s GOP. If you’ve seen Ron Paul’s latest ad TRUST which completely disses Rick Perry you may have thought Paul would’ve hit Perry a lot harder than that but he didn’t. I guess Paul decided he had more important things to tell the American people for example how he would eliminate airport security, dismantle FEMA and get us a gallon of gas for a silver dime!
And Former Governor of Utah Jon Huntsman, oh man, the guy just seemed out-of-place up there.
Yes, really that’s the best they could do. And Tea Party favorite, Representative Michele Bachmann, wasn’t really given the chance to say much she was thrown a couple of questions here and there but nothing that could really get her going. And the other three candidates, Herman Cain, Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum received the same treatment as Bachmann.
So with just a few sparks here and there from the other candidates Romney and Perry were allowed to pretty much go after each other and we expected that since the two have been declared the ones to beat with Rick Perry now leading most of the national polls.
But what was surprising, to me, was how easily the six other candidates were marginalized and dismissed. When either moderator, NBC’s Brian Williams or Politico’s John Harris decided to ask any of the other candidates a question I’m sure I’m not the only one who was thinking “Why are you guys even bothering?” since most of the debate was centered on either Romney or Perry.
To be honest, if I had been one of the other candidates on stage tonight I wouldn’t be hard press to consider the entire evening a waste of my time.
After being ‘beat down’ by Hillary and ABC on Wednesday night Obama got up on Thursday and brushed his shoulder’s off.
I saw nothing wrong with the questions the moderators asked the issues and points they raised are legitimate concerns for many people and although they may seem to be a bit ‘tabloidesque’ to some journalists have the right to ask them and Obama should have been more prepared to address them instead he did seem like a deer got in headlights and that is unacceptable.
Obama should’ve known that the Rev. Wright issue, the San Francisco comments etc, etc would have come up and the fact that he appeared to have been caught off guard is something that dare not be repeated come October and November during the presidential debates.
However, in the end for all those critical of Obama’s actions since then all I have to say is that Obama by brushing his shoulders off not only endeared himself to his youth supporters but also I’m willing to bet got a few thousand more votes plus for once a politician looked cool and natural doing something youthful unlike John Kerry on his surfboard and Mitt Romney’s comment “Who let the dogs out..”.
unlike Mitt Romney I just couldn’t help myself, sorry…I just couldn’t..lol..
Two faced, fraud man Mitt Romney is gone..can you give me a hell yeah..HELL YEAH!!!
I know, I know he’s not gone forever but I’m still going to relish the fact that he spent 35 million and got nothing, except maybe name recognition for that sum.. 35 million of his own money and HE GOT NOTHING!!! LOL>>LOL>>
You know I don’t normally relish in a person’s failure because I believe that failure is relative and even when it’s clearly defined as such you can still garner enormous quantities of valuable information from your mistakes.
However Mitt Romney’s case is different I don’t begrudge him his faith, his money or even his issues. I am who I am and he’s who he is in that respect but I do not or cannot respect any individual who changes his mind about a particular issue and than wants to crucify others for believing what he once believed, to me and millions of others obviously that’s the height of hypocrisy and I also question his sincerity on the issues of particular importance to the GOP.
It seems he ‘converted’ to their way of thinking at just the right time in order to start running for president and it based on his past history it seems that Mitt Romney always says what he thinks people want to hear instead of what he truly believes.
Mike Huckabee and John Mccain for all my disagreements with them on the issues are true to themselves and their country first and to their party second. Romney never seems to be true to anything not even himself.
And that is why he failed because he could never convey an effective message because he had none and the one that he did have his economic ‘genius’ was packaged in a way that instead of rallying people actually did quite the opposite it turned them off..
Whatever possessed Mitt Romney this election cycle is sure to resurface sometime in the near future, probably in 2012 but I do hope that he’s learned a lesson and that when we do see him again we see an entirely different man and not the two faced hypocrite who can’t get along with his teammates that we’ve all grown to hate this election cycle.
As for Clinton loaning her campaign 5 million dollars all I have to say is..well, well, well.. if things are that bad for her now imagine what they are going to be like in a few weeks after a series of Obama wins.
Ain’t it funny how one year can make such a BIG difference? Last year she raising millions in a few hours now she has to loan herself money…I have to say the writing, although still quite a bit vague may suddenly be appearing on the wall..
Fraud dude Mitt Romney is giving a speech..he shouldn’t tell jokes oh. so his brother is older than him so what..we don’t care…hasn’t he learned his jokes suck!!
And listen to him talking about the three places he’s lived voting for him and that’s it for sure..he’s done he better not ask for anymore ’cause he wouldn’t be getting any more that’s for d@#& sure…well maybe a few more but after that he better go back to gobbling up small companies..
Wow he actually talked about persona non gratis Bush..amazing..
He thinks it’s important that the president should have had a job in the private sector!!! LOL>>OMG…LOL>>> hmm….
And why do his people chant like that it’s creepy..really creepy..he should tell them to stop I’m serious this just make his campaign look even scarier you know this chanting thing is almost as bad as when he walked up to those black kids singing, “Who let the dogs out?”
