Not Another GOP Prez Debate Thread

  • 17 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols

The fact that everyone’s asking if it’s Newt Gingrich’s moment could lower ratings.

    1. Paul advocated against being too aggressive overseas, against the PATRIOT Act, and for ending the drug war as being unproductive.

      Huntsman countered with what little time he was offered by saying our biggest problem is joblessness.

      Everyone else?  Loopy.

      Romney managed two major gaffes which don’t seem to have gotten much attention – flip-flopping on illegal immigration enforcement within a 5 minute span, and calling out Hezbollah activity in Latin America as a major threat.

  1. I believe Mitt Romney just referred to Pakistan as the 6th largest nation in the world.

    If he meant according to population, that’s correct, but he should have worded it differently.  

  2. Gingrich claimed we could replace all of Iran’s oil exports to Europe with our own, if we only used the power of making shit up.

    Perry claimed that half a trillion dollars is $500 million dollars.

    Herman Cain thinks we need to look at the facts, decide what’s best, and then do it. He will let you know how that ends up after you elect him.

    1. 9,688,000 Barrels – US daily production

      4,252,000 Barrels – Iran Daily Production

      So we would have to increase our production by 50%, which, even if possible, is not feasible, at least not with any speed. It would take time to build wells and infrastructure necessary to do so.

      CNN Verdict: Not a Lie, but certainly Misleading

  3. He’s actually making some sense on immigration. “If they’ve been here for twenty years, they’ve obeyed the laws, and they pay taxes, we should let them stay.” (paraphrased)

      1. “This is what i think about what just happened: Gingrich does not have the organization to win, and he knows it. But he just used his 15 minutes of fame to try to save the GOP from itself on immigration. But they wonВґt be thankful Newt. TheyВґre blind and deaf.”

        Good point.

        1. Let’s assume Republicans are the nicest, kindest, smartest people around, and that they just look, sound, and act like complete assholes because we’re wearing the wrong color sunglasses.

          Probably the more accurate way to look at it is that Gingrich is bored with the campaign and doesn’t know what to do with his lead in the polls, and as always can’t just exit gracefully. I think this is his flounce: “Look I’ve changed every one of sixteen deeply-held beliefs to win this primary, but I’m tired of trying to remember which side I’m supposed to be on, so take this primary and shove it! Oh and buy my book, that’s why I really ran after all, I need some new jewelry and a Greek vacation.”

        2. I can’t imagine a woman anywhere voting for Gingrich. He seems condescending and arrogant, and his policies are archaic. I think focus groups would bear that out. Gingrich has no there, there, for women voters.
