Anyone watching these guys tonight?
Come, let’s go!
Congratulations Pam on being #1
Thanks hopefruit2, from Pamela
This is what I have been putting put for the squirrel all day! Mixed nuts, in the hard shell! Won’t be watching the lunatics, no stomach for it!
Whoop! Whoop! I should go to the Solomons more often on a snowy day!
Thank you, my Chipsticks, you are too good to me!
I know, I know. :-)
But don’t let that stop ya’! You make a huge difference doing all that you do for us Obots!
Anyone here from Florida know anything about this?
Sorry, forgot the link!
I tweeted that. Thanks for letting us know about this. It is alarming how far the GOP is going to destroy this country.
tweeted that to OFA_FL too
Not unless you listen to NPR down here. I live in Miami and earlier this week was the first I had heard about it. Local public radio station is the only one reporting it…
Debate time, John King moderating… look for softballs to be thrown.
He is a pathetic reporter. I really miss Tim Russert.
South Carolina’s primary—the first in the South—is this Saturday. And even though it’s a Republican primary, Democrats have been on the ground across the state all week, holding the GOP candidates accountable and building up the President’s Palmetto State operation.
We kicked today off in Charleston with a press conference with our chair, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, former chair and South Carolinian Don Fowler, and South Carolina state Rep. Bakari Sellers, who called out Mitt Romney for refusing to release his tax returns—a precedent that every presidential candidate has adhered to for decades, including George Romney in 1968.
Guardian live blog, usually smart and VERY good fun:
Thanks! I’ll be switching back and forth! Anything to keep my mind directly OFF these lying SOBs!
Too bad the humor factor will be diminished with Rick The Imbecile from TX gone….
I almost wept when he withdrew, Dave, he gave us sooooooooo many laughs.
Lover Boy Newton Leroy is not looking trim tonight.
Bill be nice. It’s January. :)
I agree with John King on one thing… GO PATRIOTS!!!
Checked into this particular blog first today after a two day visit from one of my sons. Lots of things have happened since I was on last. Now I need to go back and check the other earlier posts. I’m tivoing the debate to watch later.
Welcome back OG!
Ooops, lots of marriage mentions. Wonder why???
Newt asked about Marianne… and so it begins!
Newt appalled at bringing up Marianne… but this fucker wasn’t appalled to impeach Bill Clinton for the same thing!
Gingrich gives a big FU to the question about whether he would respond to the claims made by his ex wife and begin the debate with that question.
Audience loving Newt!
He kept giving dumb answers and they kept clapping. They’re all morons.
Newt is angry!
Just tuned in to hear them introduce themselves. I find the fakeness of these people, including the moderators (John King) very tiresome. The desire to make it all seem so exciting by the media is so creepy.
First question about Gingrich’s cheating ways.. I’m betting that was all planned. Gingrich the hypocrite upset about being asked… didn’t he as a President this same question back during Clinton’s admin?? But now he calls it ‘trash’.
he doesn’t come off as Presidential at all.
Newt is a complete ass!
Newt Gingrich plays victim on "open marriage" question. "Don't try to blame somebody else!" Projection much?— Matt Ortega (@MattOrtega) January 20, 2012
Gingrich plays the Sarah Palin "victim" card. "Elite media" are the problem.— Lynn (@wavingcrosser) January 20, 2012
he also said all this (issue with his ex wife) is Obama’s fault.
I kid you not.
You couldn’t invent these people, no on has an imagination that vivid.
yes daisydem. I wouldn’t believe it if I didn’t hear it.
He said the media is bringing all this up to protect Obama.
Yes, to protect Obama-the-faithful-husband. Right. Unreal.
Translation: PBO is so loving and faithful to his one and only wife, just bringing up the fact of my numerous adulterous affairs is biased against me!
So, John King is part of the liberal media elite?
News to me too!
WHAT A HOOT FOR THE FIRST QUESTION…NEWT ON THE DEFENSE AND OF COURSE THIS AUDIENCE WILL BE WITH NEWT…BECAUSE HE IS A ‘GEORGIA BOY!’
Who said that? No way. John King (of the shaking head forward in affirmation like one of those dolls in your rear view mirror on the car) is the reason I have not watched CNN since he did that interview with Dick Cheney (Darth Vader) right after the inauguration! Cheney was spewing lie after lie and King was nodding his little pointed head in affirmation!
Sorry, but John King walked right into that one, and Newt totally punked him…that answer might just have won him the SC primary.
Stupid to open with the question.
I’m gonna analyze this like a repub voters.
What did he say?
Newt Gingrich did not have drag President Obama’s name into it. The question had nothing to do with Barack Obama. It wasn’t Obama who did the ABC interview about his ex-wife. That may win Gingrich the nomination in SC, but it will not help in a general election against the President.
Paul whining about corporations, but he signed the Grover Norquist pledge!
all these men are weak.
blame the media.
Elizabeth Warren has raised over $1M!
Congrats Ms. Warren. . . we have your back!
for repub voters going against the liberal media is a plus.
3 specific programs that put Americans back to work and Paul wants to get the fed government out, then says he wants stronger regulations!
What a nut!
Fornicating Under Consent ofthe King them or feed ‘em beans.
And the winner tonight: Yardarm!
Not me Cap’n. It’s your wheelhouse.
I like all the cheering of open-marriage fans at the start. #cnndebdate— David Corn (@DavidCornDC) January 20, 2012
In a word … NO! But I give thanks for those who have the stamina and the nerves to watch and report. Thank you. Each of you. So the subject of Marianne is already out there? Yea. And how dare anyone disparage her story. Just because you were the “first” mistress, that does not mean you don’t think you are the only one for him and he’d never cheat on you (for awhile you think that) and doesn’t her being his mistress when his first wife was sick lend credence to her story now that he cheated on her too and wanted to keep doing it … with her blessing? How sick is that? Especially if now you are touting yourself as a “family values” candidate? I hate them, all of them. I hate the GOP and will be glad when it completely implodes, explodes … whatever. And I think it is getting close!
IM LATE TO THE FREAK SHOW! WHAT DID I MISS
You missed Newt get angry because John King started off the debate asking him about Marianne Gingrich!
Andrew Sullivan believes Newton Leroy may have won the SC primary with his response to the opening question.
I agree it was a stupid error by CNN. CNN should have had it as a question from a “real voter”, not from King himself.
Repubs already have a distrust of CNN as liberal media (no matter how many RW nutjobs they hire…this fed into narrative).
Now all Newt’s got to do it keep his head down and not get flustered and take it to Romney.
Newt attacking Willard on Bain Capital
wow…first question out the box….the interview
Willard attacking the President and NOT Newt…
Romney – Obama is employing crony capitalism
John King calling out Willard for his fuzzy Bain Capital math
OMG WILLARD HAS A DISEASE!
Willard has moved far far to the right and it’s pathetic!
Willard dodges Newt’s question about Bain and attacks PBO. King asks him again and he goes after PBO again. :roll:
Romney – I am not talking about Bain because I know my response will be attacked by the left and President Obama.
Character is only an issue for Republicans when they can disguise their own by pointing at Dems. #CNNdebate— (@Karoli) January 20, 2012
Willard is sounding like a used car salesman!
8.19pm: Complaining about the slowness of the government, Newt Gingrich says: “We won the entire second world war in three years and eight months.” Did “we” now, Newt? Because of course the second world war only started in December 1941, as everyone knows.
Not only did it not start until December 1941 apparently “we” were the only ones fighting it. (Newt like Darth Chaney and the other thuglets never go to war.)
I thought he was a history professor.
120-10 = over 100k jobs? What is Robney talking about?
Willard isn’t landing ANY punches at Newt, and instead attacking the President… how pathetic!
These people in the audience had to be paid.
Romney will stuff capitalism down Obama’s throat if he has to.
Santorum – This is the squalor that Obama has created by giving citizens more food stamps and medicaid.
These candidates are so pathetic…a noun and verb and BarackObamaBarackObamaBarackObama….
hopefruit..that’s a cood one, a noun,a verb and baraackobamabarackobama.
I meant good one.
Boston Globe: "It is impossible to say precisely if more jobs were created than cut by Bain." j.mp/yeRqfi #cnndebate— The Democrats (@TheDemocrats) January 20, 2012
I leave it to you brave and stalwart souls, bless your stamina! I am going to make dinner!
Happy eating Pamela ;-)
Romney repeats his usual line of four companies that have created 120,000 jobs, minus 10,000 jobs lost in others place. This is kind of nonsense, since Bain for example only gave Staples (one of the four) about 10% of its start-up capital. So shouldn’t it only take credit for 10% of the jobs?
But no, Romney goes off onto how he believes in capitalism and how he’s going to “stuff it down [Barack Obama's] throat”. How charming.
HEY DIPSHIT KING, PBO DID THAT ALREADY.
FACT: Romney campaign has not provided proof that Bain created "thousands of jobs" during Romney's tenure j.mp/ylXUgt #cnndebate— The Democrats (@TheDemocrats) January 20, 2012
Santorum: Obama just wants to give "them" more handouts. Who are "they" one wonders?— David Roberts (@drgrist) January 20, 2012
Paul: No new programs for military service men and women coming back. Just cut taxes and debt.
Paul says vets need medical health, but he voted AGAINST the American Care Act!
Santorum said this President cut veterans benefits???
Bain cut jobs and benefits at one steel company while they & investors received management fees + $65 million dividend. j.mp/A1PJ4S— The Democrats (@TheDemocrats) January 20, 2012
Santorum says Obama will gut our military and their benefits, we need to cut social welfare…
Santorum said that this President wants to cut Veterans benefits.
Willard says get the federal government out of spending for vets, let the states handle it and blames the President!
Wow, attacking the vets. That’ll win over a lot of votes. This may be the debate that seals the GOP’s doom with the broader electorate.
But doesn’t the federal government send these men and women off to war?? Why should the states have to figure out what to do with them when they come back? Makes no freaking sense.
LOL…Mitt is suddenly a state’s rights proponent. Gag me…such bullshit coming from these people.
He is going way right! That is actually good for us!
Taxes were 91% during the Eisenhower administration, to pay for WWII! Sorry Newt, you lie!
Yes, the top tax rate was 91 percent and the economy somehow did great in spite of heavily taxing the “job creators.”
Next question – Obama care – are you going to repeal it and how will you do it?
Willard said his EO wouldn’t completely end ObamaCare but he will repeal it… but ObamaCare came from WillardCare!
knock on wood!!! Willardcare!!!!
Romney – we will have to get it repealed in the house and the senate and we will get the People to support it.
Willard: convince democrats to get rid of Obamacare and replace it with Willardcare :roll:
I HAVE TO AGREE WITH SULLIVAN…THE PEOPLE IN SOUTH CAROLINA ARE OUT FOR BLOOD AND THEY WANT A FIGHTER FOR A CANDIDATE…THEY ARE OUT TO GET PBO…THE AFRICAN AMERICAN PRESIDENT…AND THEY DON’T CARE WHAT THEY HAVE TO DO TO GET THERE. THEY ALSO DON’T CARE WHAT NEWT DID TO GET THERE. THEY WANT A GUY WITH A VERBAL AXE!
i hope the SS sticks guards the President and his family….
May the Creator keep our President and his family safe from harm…
Romney is describing Obamacare
For anyone who’s not watching the debate… I found this:
Obama Sends Birthday Card to Zooey Deschanel
“Zooey Deschanel received a special letter for her birthday from a very high-ranking man: President Barack Obama.
Deschanel is birthday twins with First Lady Michelle Obama, which was an easy reminder for the commander-in-chief to send the New Girl star a special note on the 17th.
In addition to wishing her a happy birthday, Obama thanked Deschanel for “all (she) has done to encourage and support young women who are making a difference across our country.”
The 32-year-old actress co-founded HelloGiggles, an entertainment website devoted to women that partnered with the White House for a campaign called “Women Working to Do Good,” which highlights women around the country who make a difference in their communities…”
Gingrich: bureaucratic medicine, repeal all of it, blahblahblah…
Gingrich – Repeal Obamacare should be a major part of the Republican Fall campaign.
HAHA ROMNEY CANT RUN WITH THAT ANSWER. WHAT HE JUST DESCRIBED IS OBAMACARE
Gingrich says the President can’t get jobs for 26 yo on their parents healthcare but Gingrich forgets how the Republicans BLOCKED the American Jobs Act!
Repeal Obama care, repeal it now, that is my number one issue!
Please, please, please! Lol!
Yikes! These voters in SC are scary. Johnny Reb!
Santorum calling out Willard for Willardcare being the basis of Obamacare
More birthday wishes for FLOTUS (from HelloGiggles.com, dated 1/17/2012)
[Article has thumbnail links to some great photos of FLOTUS]
“Michelle Obama is listed as one of my inspirational people on Facebook. And no, it’s not just because she’s married to the leader of the free world. It’s also because she looks better in J. Crew than the models in the catalogue do. Most importantly, though, it’s because of her programs fighting childhood obesity and the fact that she always comes across as super poised and very intelligent.
Last week Mrs. Obama got a Twitter account and I was one of the first to follow her. This started the Google image stalking of Michelle Obama that happens quite often for me. And when I found out it was her birthday today, it seemed a good time to put those Google searches to use…”
Thanks Dudette. I enjoyed the photos of Michelle. I have no stomach for the Republican debates either. Judging from the comments the crowd is even uglier than usual.
Go Santorum!!! going after WillardCare!!
Santorum called out Gingrich for supporting the individual mandate
I hate to say it, but I think unless someone faints on stage, Newt has already won this debate and maybe the primary.
Who wants to bet the lead headline about the debate are already written?
“Newt Defiant”….sounds about right.
By doing what he did and with John Kin’s help of putting the question out there first, Newt has essentially neutralized the attacks on the marriage in this debate. Santorum or Romney will looks like douches if they bring it up.
I think you are right!
why would you hate to say it. I want Leroy to win the debate and the primary……both of which are unlikely.
FACT: Romney proposed giving veterans a private voucher, which would undermine the care they receive now. #cnndebate— The Democrats (@TheDemocrats) January 20, 2012
Willard on the defensive of his Willardcare plan
Romney said the MA health plan "could inform Washington on ways to improve health care for all Americans." j.mp/kDMT7g #cnndebate— The Democrats (@TheDemocrats) January 20, 2012
This audience makes me completely sick to my stomach.
They do a disservice to the American people and seem completely unaware that they are holding up a mirror that reflects the hatred and bigotry of the past in this country.
This debate and these republicans reflect a terrible view of this nation.
I can hardly wait for PO be reelected in 2012.
THAT’S RIGHT! …….THIS IS WHAT I CALL THE ‘GONG SHOW’ PROOF OF THE WORST IN AMERICAN PATRIOTISM!
They have the same effect on me, nospin, vile ugly horrible people.
Hang in there, PBO will be speaking at 9:25 – it’ll be a majestic relief to hear him.
I LOVE HOW THYE BASH THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT AND THEN APPLAUD ROMNEY FOR SAYING OBAMA CUT MEDICARE!
I wish that this would open the eyes to those “independents” who disapprove of PBO more than approve of him, (I think the largest percentage of “independents” are dissatisfied Americans) and make them realize that PBO is the best president we have ever had. I wish this ugly racism would stop rearing it’s ugly head. It scares me.
THE DOWNSIDE OF OUR SOCIETY TODAY IS THE FACT THAT THEY WILL TAKE ANYONE WHO WILL STAND UP TO PBO…THEY DON’T CARE HOW DIRTY HIS OWN BACKYARD IS! THEY LOVE THE FACT THAT NEWT IS FROM GEORGIA! IN SOUTH CAROLINA…IT’S GOING TO GET DOWN TO WHO CAN SPIT THE FARTHEST! NOT A GREAT TESTAMENT FOR CHARACTER!
Yes, this family values crowd are all a bunch of hypocrites. They love red meat and Newt is famously fiving it to them. Randi Rhodes was telling the democrats to vote for Newt in SC Saturday so that they can drag this clown show out longer. :)
A PRESIDENT NEEDS MORE THAN DEBATING PROWESS
Newt, on the other hand, is a sharp debater. And his lack of those other attributes, e.g., organization, has, at least for now, been largely offset by his debating prowess.
But here’s the thing: does being a good debater make you a good president? I can’t see that it does.
Santorum just owned Willard on Willardcare. Just give it up Willard!
Gingrich actually refuted Santorum’s point but bringing up teleprompter and Lincoln-Douglas debate…
Willard sounds so proud of himself: “if you want to be gov or Mas, go be gov, but I wanna be president of the United States!”—-then he nodded for good measure and wiggled like a peacock! hahahhahahahahahahhahahahaha!! what an ass!!!
Lisaloves, I love your way with words. I am ROTFL. :)

UNFORTUNATELY …THIS ALL REMINDS ME OF DOG/ROOSTER FIGHTING AND THE AMPITHEATER IS FILLED WITH AN AUDIENCE LOOKING FOR A BLOOD LETTING! HISTORY CERTAINLY DOES REPEAT ITSELF WHEN RE-VISIITING THE WORST IN CHARACTER!
how long is this damn debate anyway?
It feels like 8 hours already lamh. 75 minutes to go …..
Whew… Commercial time at last!
Hilarious, Gingrich’s tax returns released DURING the debate!!!!!!!
Up Next: Leroy released his tax returns,,,,what’s in them?
This is how he puts Robney on defense.

Cool! What channel?
Thank goodness. Sane words from a sane person.
The contrast between whomever “wins” this primary process from the Republicans and President Obama will be CRYSTAL CLEAR, with our President emerging as the reasonable man and the Republican emerging as out of touch.
And the craziness continues!
Believe it it not, Charleston is a beautiful city. But I digress!
You crack me up :lol:
Santorum is doing pretty well.
So is Gingrich, Robney is on defense, halperin already gave him an A!
Santorum calls Gingrich grandiose. Love it.
oh, and Newt if he’s smart laid the trap for Romney by releasing his tax returns during the debate so you know CNN has to ask about it. it practically a lay-up shot.
Let’s see if Romney has finally come up with a better answer.
Santorum brings up his win in Iowa!!!!
Wow, Santorum’s pretty good (by his standards) tonight.

I had the pleasure of meeting her several times while I was stationed in DC. Additionally, her creations would grace my desk every week that I went to Church. Gentleman from my Church worked @ the White House, and as the arrangements were changed daily back then (don’t recall hearing about excessive spending back then), the “Saturday” flowers would decorate our Church on Sunday, and my desk on Monday… (we were free to take them (minus the container) after service.)

Santorum is roughing up Gingrich BAD!
Holy smoley, Rick is SKEWERING Newt!!!!!!!
Any word on where we can watch PBO at the Apollo tonight?
To me Willard is making little impression. Newton Leroy and Santorum are dominating the attention.
They are all going after Newt, they must know he is now frontrunner?
Santorum and Leroy going at it!!!!
That ass Willard looking like an ass bouncing between Leroy and Santorum—–like he’s watching a tennis match.

Where will we be hearing POTUS tonight?
Hi socasweet, C-Span have the speech in their listings
I’ll post a heads up nearer 9:25

Romney flubs big time. He was rambling and forgot what his line was supposed to be.

I’m getting a kick out of reading the comments here. No way can I watch this. Seriously. I don’t want to throw something and destroy my TV.
Agreed. Bad things can happen and my poor husband has to listen to my howling and cursing. It’s just not right. Hearing about it second hand is all I’m up for. But it’s good to read the comments from like minded people with stronger stomachs.
That’s why I admire anyone who can watch.
Could someone explain to me why no coverage of POTUS’ speech at the Apollo tonight on BET or TV One? WTH!!
BET and TV one very rarely do live coverage of anything. If I remember correctly, the last time they did was when Obama won the nomination, DNC convention and election night
Willard you have been successful… successful at a career of screwing people and being a professional liar!
Ah, it’s the Democrats fault that Willard stashes his loot away in the Cayman Islands?
Willard: Dems trying to attack people who are successful. ——-brings up Keystone and PBO playing golf.
Yes, I think he said PBO played golf 90 times or something. Guess he has a staffer paid to count that. WOS.
/ghetto on I ain’t watching this mess and y’all cain’t make me /ghetto off. I tried to watch one Repub debate and my grandma was about to kick the TV in with all the lies behind proffered and my blood pressure was going up. My sister can actually watch the debates all the way through, but ends up shaking her head in the end. I only watch the primary election returns, nothing else.
Willard won’t release his tax returns because he doesn’t want to reveal that he’s been getting taxed at a low rate.
Miserably weak response from Willard on his tax returns. He doesn’t want to release them because it’ll give the Dems something to attack? Hmmmmmm…….
That will be the soundbite that the pundits focus on!
He’s such a dumbass. He also said he doesn’t want to release it so he can beat PBO. He must be hiding shady stuff. Love how John King stumped him with the fact that his dad George Romney released 12 years of tax returns. Willard looked mighty uncomfortable.
He more or less said his dad was poor and releasing his returns didn’t mean the same. Uh, okay.
What an ass!
Santorum’s comment was funny, he does his own taxes and he’ll get them as soon as he gets home.
.@MittRomney just said he's not releasing his returns because it would hurt him— Brad Woodhouse (@woodhouseb) January 20, 2012
John King brought up Willard’s father and how he released his tax returns. Even the audience wants him to follow his father’s footsteps.
what the fudge?!!!! Nin, you and I are sharing a brain tonight!!!
Willard it’s been REPUBLICANS wanting you to release your tax returns… or is Chris Christie suddenly a Democrat?
THATS NOT HTE POINT U IDIOT WILLARD
Jphn King did a good thing. Brought up Willard’s dad releasing 12 years income tax. King asked if he’d do the same, WIllard: “I don’t know. Maybe.”—audience booed.
Good grief Lisa, Willard handled it all abysmally!
Willard is on defense!
Even he realized it because he immediately went back to his old defense tactic—-shifting the focus back on PBO. “I’ll be able to talk to PBO in a way no one else on this stage will be able to.”—-after which, PBO will promptly stick his shoes up your rump, Willard!
And I honestly lost track of the number of lies he told in his ‘defense’ – Twitter is abuzz!!!
I don’t even bother to count. I mute and sometimes I think of what will happen to him when PBO gets a hold of him in the GE.
This is so dumb of him. Your Daddy released 12 years worth of income tax but you can’t release one! Seriously???!!! Just rip the band-aid off Romney and get it over with. PBO is going to rip him a new one during the general.
Willard is squirming around the issue of his tax returns. He knows he’s hiding something.
Every single Republican on that stage has blamed Obama except for Ron Paul.
Ron Paul has some racial issues, maybe that’s why?
No! We need Newt to take down Romney! If Romney wins, then it’s over!
Paul says that consumers benefited by Apple jobs in China.
Everytime he speaks, I’m reminded of how batshit crazy he is.
Paul sounds like someone’s crazy old uncle. Why is he still in this race?
As a place holder for Romney. He keeps Santorum and Gingrich from solidifying their support. Notice he HARDLY ever attacks Romney?
If Willard is the nominee, Paul will endorse Willard so that Rand will have an opportunity at VP…
Santorum vs Paul…
WILLARD. “MAYBE” IS NOT A PRESIDENTIAL ANSWER.
That’s freaking right on! I can’t watch the hatefest…I appreciate ALL of this tonight :)
Honestly, we never needed a PBO speech more …. sanity!!!!!
It shows! My question is..has he lied to everyone all his life?
Gingrich saying he’s asked a question about Hollywood as a conservative…
Rommney needs a brake so he can change his tap-dancing shoes. He’s worn out the current pair.
Willard opposes SOPA
So, presumably, he’ll be for it tomorrow?
hatcha!!!!! right on Chips. right on!! :lol:
Good night everyone.
Reminder: President Obama’s campaign event at the Apollo in New York on C-SPAN at 9:30pm
Williard doesn’t take a stand on anything.
Does he ever?
Another break, then more craziness!

My goodness, I need PBO’s soothing voice to rid me from the nightmarish debate. Romney is a bloody fool. He basically admitted that he doesn’t want to release his tax returns because he’ll lose. Heads up buddy boy you were always going to lose.
