    If you watched the debates last night and want to talk about it lets do so here.

    I liked when Newt asked the liberally biased questioner if her question was serious. "I love the humor disguized as a questoin"

    I also liked when he brought up the fact that many don't remember the history of america when they talk about the "1% and 99%"

    To me the questioners framed their questions with a lot of liberal bias. Not every question but many of them. Who else felt that way?


    How about Perry's "Brain Fart"

    Or how about Romney's response when they tried to get him to attack Cain on harassment?


    Several good moments even if the questioners made it difficult to watch at times with their innacurate claims/statments disguised in their questions.


    Oh and for those that will say i'm a "hack" for saying the questions were biased this is the first out of all the debates where I have made that comment about the questions so don't bother going there.

    Thank you for the clip :) It was fabulous! I'd pay money to see a debate between Newt and Barry.. Newt is my guy so I'm a bit bias when it comes to him.. however, he continues to show his knowledge of the issues and that he is a very formidable opponent.

    I was asleep early due to having to be at work at 3AM to do some maintenance... (you know, work, unlike what the OWSers and the progressives living on mommy's couch in the basement do)... So I missed the debate, and I did not TiVo it... so I will have to read up on it later

    I had to come back to bump this bad-boy thread.

    Nicely done by PP (particularly given his reputation as a recidivist sexual harassment predator).

    The Newt clip WAS a sterling moment.

    Newt is still the sharpest pencil in the box.
