it will be interesting to see responses to this debate because they all pretty much solidified their positions on the issues.

i still want santorum to drop out, as he is annoying the heck out of me. (although he gave a good answer on the school shots issue). i think santorum is more popular with the military wing of the republican party and more popular with men than women.

I think Santorum makes good points, but he isn't going anywhere. Perry irritates the heck out of me.

The left wing media is really hoping for Perry...it is so obvious. Republicans better look out.

He should be gone real soon.

He's a dem-lite. You can have him......but of course, if he were running against obama, you'd vote for obama anyway.

The coming regulations and TAXES from obamacare is creating anxiety and consternation in the business community. They have no idea how much it will cost them. It is the driving force of why business is not hiring, apart from the lack of demand from consumers.

No, we just don't like the blame America meme, which usually resides on the Left.

To you he speaks common sense, but to the nation he talks crazy. You see, the Left is a fringe minority in the population and all this talk of blaming America for 9/11 belongs right there...on the Left. I can understand why you like him. But as with Huntsman, if he were up against obama in the general, I have no doubt who you'd vote for.

santorum would spend every single penny that americans made fighting "enemies" around the world.


that doesn't work for me.

i liked that paul talked about "defense" spending as opposed to "military" spending.

if you left it up to men like santorum, the earth would be a smoking crater.

maybe that is why there are women on the earth.

It turns out any kind of historical contextualization or actual geopolitical knowledge is just a "blame America meme". You heard it here first, folks. If you don't just repeat "THEY HATE US FOR OUR FREEDOMS," like Santorum did, you're basically a traitor.

LOL @ Santorum trying to pull a Guliani on Ron Paul. Santorum doesn't grasp the concept of blowback, and yet, he's a pretender on that stage. I bet our conflict with Afghanistan started on 9/11, according to Rick.

i bet if we left, they would go back to hating each other.

they have their share of problems in the mideast and we don't need to keep getting sucked into them.

look at the jackass libya action. the rebels are just as bad as the people they are replacing, according to eyewitness reports.

i saw an interesting (although surprising) report from goldman sachs that they expect america to be the world's top oil producer going forward.

if true, that would certainly be good news for america.

"Well, you see, we actually did a lot of things in Afghanistan that influenced their opinions of us"

STOP BLAMING AMERICA FIRST

"I'm not blaming America, I'm just saying, our actions in other nations ha-"

ANTI-AMERICAN *******

"Guys..I started the Tea Party...remember? It's me ...Ron Paul..."

BOO THIS MAN
