    Debate audience, or whooping football crowd? - CNN.com

    booing a gay soldier?

    cheering someone who dies because they dont have health insurance?

    booing the fact mtt romney's dad was born in mexico?

    booing ron paul for saying do unto others as you would have them do unto you? i thought these people loved the bible?

    seriously? is this what supporters of the gop have degenerated down to?

    It reminds me of a Big Time Wrasslin crowd. Which makes a lot of sense if you think about it.

    that is funny...and true. when they showed the crowd i dont think i saw a person of color.

    reminds me of the last repub convention when it seemed like 99% of the crowd was over 60 and caucasion. that turns me off, but oh well.

    Yes, agreed, we--the Republicans--have got to do a much better job of being less judgemental (holier than thou), and more open to the reality of acceptance and tolerance. Otherwise, our ranks will continue to dwindle. Have to wonder if we--the Republicans--have scared all the Independents away?! It's certainly not getting any easier for moderates like me either. Then, after watching the debate "performance" you don't have to wonder how we've become so isolated from the mainstream--dang!

    Reminds me of the last time I read an intelligent post from a jibbering idiot... oh... wait... that hasn't happened yet.

    Idiot.

    99% of your posts are bullshit. Prove me wrong! :lol:

    Here's my issue with the OP. (S)He starts off with bullshit. If you bullshit in your first sentence, I stop reading the rest. I am not interested in the bullshit of fools.

    I don't know but they clapped after nearly everything said last night. I got tired of hearing it, they should make them sit on their hands. Maybe it's just me but I think a debate should be a little more serious; I'm starting to think they should do them in empty auditoriums.
