    If your ass doesn't win the debate I doubt your ass will win the election. Stepping stones.

    This should be an interesting thread.

    I have yet to hear how Newt Gingrich is going to win over the moderates and independents from his newfound supporters.

    For myself, I believe that many of the GOP is lusting after someone who will try to score a knockout punch rather than win on points. Many in the GOP hate the opponent so much that they would prefer a loss in the election if it means the opponent gets carried from the ring.

    Your OP was vague as hell but it sounds to me that you do not like the attacks that are being leveled at the candidates by each other because it is 'hurting' the republican ticket in the end. If that is what you're getting at, then I would like to disagree. I hope the primary is as tough as hell because all of these attacks are going to be used by Obama. It is far better for them to come out and be old news when the actual election rolls around rather than a big scandal weeks before people vote.

    Considering the mediazation of America is there much difference?
    Isn't the most important candidate poll actually the neilson ratings?

    Newt wins in the hair category and poor ol Ron is still in last place on the hair episode too :(

    And I have already seen threads about sex with Newt.
    Face it folks Newt appears the likely media winner.

    Then you just are not listening, dude. Gingrich will win because MOST AMERICANS ARE CONSERVATIVE. They self-identify as conservative or leaning to conservatism. Libtards are about one out of five Americans and they only vote Democrat or Socialist Party anyway so who needs them?

    Take your meds and pay fracking attention, will you?

    If you are talking about opposition to Romney it is because the man is like a Nixon on steroids.

    He will say or do anything to anyone to win the nomination. I really fear for my country should he become President. I would much prefer Obama to Romney as Obama is more honest than Romney and has genuine concern for average Americans even if it is confused.

    Romney eats Americans on Main Street for a snack daily.

    Why do you propose this false dichotomy?

    Cant we both win the debates AND the election?
