    Romney and Gingrich squabbled, further reminding voters that they have some glaring hypocrisy issues. Santorum kept saying both of them had screws loose.

    The person who won this debate? Ron Paul. The man who consistently gave good answers that no one seemed to have any issues with, and actually agreed with a number of times.

    Now who’s going to win the state’s delegates? Not Ron Paul. Because in a country as messed up as this one is right now, voting for someone who makes sense is not as important as voting for someone with issues who more closely associates with a political party.

    How about you vote for the person instead of the discombobulated team? (I mean this for all parties involved).

    Mitt Romney was clearly the winner of tonight’s debate. His attacks on Gingrich were factually based and well delivered. Gingrich was obviously ruffled and unable to answer with any real clarity. Romney was by far and away the most presidential and refined. Gingrich is a very brilliant man, but he is not a man of true moral convictions and it shows. His mastery of language is very impressive, but he lacks the character necessary to guide America out of the downward spiral that Obama has put us in. In my opinion, Romney is light-years ahead of Gingrich as the best choice to become our next president of the United States.

      Jane, Romney barely answered any questions and continually diverted from what was being asked. When asked abut sugar subsidies he went on a rant about golf and NASA. Mitt’s just hot air with a haircut. Never gives solid answers, just yells “capitalism” and “free markets” and gets cheers even though in the same sentence he usually talks about needing regulations and restrictions. The man offers up little substance and when he does he is a walking contradiction.

  • Jane January 24, 2012 - 8:47 AM

    From the comment of TheSwash.com, it is apparent that everyone sees and interprets things according to their leanings. I couldn’t disagree more with the conclusions given. I thought Romney had his strongest performance and answered every question whenever Newt shut up long enough to allow him to do so. Your trite labels of Mitt as “just hot air with a haircut “shows that you are the one lacking in substance or you would not have had to sink to criticizing his looks. That’s always a dead giveaway. And only a complete airheaded fool would take the position that Romney never gave solid answers, just yelled “capitalism” and “free markets” and so on. Your hateful bias has blinded you to the qualities of the man that are obviously above your comprehension. He is a brilliant individual, with a magnificent command of the English language.. His level of understanding regarding how to turn our economy around can not be argued with simple-minded baboons who hurl jackass remarks at a dignified gentleman whose dust they are not worthy to stand in. Romney is highly principled and has been a major financial success because of his high level of discipline and understanding of our econmy. America should be so lucky as to have him be our President. At least then, we would have a fair chance of getting our economy on track and restoring pride and goodness to America once again

      Jane: I think someone is crushing hard on Ol’ MIttens and needs to lighten up and see the humor in things. As far as economics goes, it wouldn’t hurt Romney (or you) to pick up a book by Rothbard, Mises, Hazlitt, Hayek or even Friedman to see why your hero’s economic philosophy is disastrous.

  • Paula January 24, 2012 - 9:27 AM

    Mitt Romney was by far the best prepared, poised and factually accurate debater tonight. Hit Newt hard on F&F issues and the fact that he was voted off the house. Great job!

  • John January 24, 2012 - 10:07 AM

    Ron Paul understands the greatest threat to our national security is our national debt. Who will bail us out when we go bankrupt! The programs will stop when the money runs out. If we keep printing money our dollar will be worthless, 401k’s, savings all worthless. Research it yourself. How do you think we will get out of our current course?

  • Liberty2012 January 24, 2012 - 1:39 PM

    The American people have freedom in front of their face but they are too ignorant to grasp it.

    Ron Paul:
    Cut 1 Trillion Dollars first year,
    Bring home ALL troops,
    Build up National Defense,
    Return money printing authority to the Congress,
    Shrink the government
    Give power back to the states

    He is a DOCTOR and a 24-Year CONGRESSMAN.
    He represented his DISTRICT in TEXAS just as well as he would represent this country

    1700 referrals from Mitt Romney Central and less than 100 from the Daily Paul and Paul is still winning this poll. Romney supporters, where is your enthusiasm? Even when you use Paul supporter-esque tactics and bumrush a poll en masse you still can’t hang.

  • Dopplepopolise January 24, 2012 - 5:39 PM

    These Romney people sound like religious zealot, trust fund babies. How can you defend a mans morals when he was born into affluence, never had to “earn” a damn thing for himself and made his money from taking advantage, of the advantage he was born with. He cost people their jobs and retirements so he could add immense sums of money to his own wallet when lets face it, it was stuffed since birth. But the guy has moral character? That must come from his constantly changing his mind about exactly what his morals are like on abortion and healthcare mandates. Vote Ron Paul for freedom! 30 years of consistency! Warned us the bubble was coming! seems cut and dry to me

    No question that it was a good night for Santorum and Dr. Paul. However, given the political realities, this still remains a two-way race between Newt and Mitt. Because Mitt had a better debate performance in Monday night’s debate, three separate polls issued yesterday and today, indicate Newt’s momentum has ended and that Mitt was again in the lead in Florida going into tonight’s debate, though not by much. Because of his lost momentum, Newt needed another knockout performance tonight, and on that, just about all the major news outlets agree he didn’t do very well tonight. I. Contrast, there is widespread agreement across both broadcast and print media that tonight was definitely Mitt’s best debate performance. Because of all of the above analysis, as a practical matter, Mitt effectively “won” the debate and will probably carry Florida.

    Unfortunately, Newt and Mitt both have to spend most of their debate time defending themselves instead of discussing the real issues. I thought Rick did pretty well tonight, when I could actually follow what he was saying. Ron Paul blew them all out of the water this time. He was relaxed, funny and on point as usual. I was so glad that he pointed out that Newt ‘balanced the budget’ by stealing Social Security funds from the American people. No wonder this country is in such a mess with politicians such as he at the helm. I detest Mitt Romney but, now I actually find him almost likable in comparison to Newt Gingrich. That said, Ron Paul seems to be the only candidate with a concise grasp on how we got into this mess and how we will be able to get out of it. Since our current economic turmoil is by far the greatest threat to our national security, I am going to cast my vote for Dr. Paul. National security issues aren’t going to matter if we do not have the money to protect ourselves.

    He also seem to be the only candidate who is concerned with the domestic security of the people as well. I haven’t heard any other candidate speak out against NDAA, TSA, SOPA or PIPA. In fact, Romney embraced NDAA. These other candidates frighten me just as much as Obama does.

    A vote for Ron Paul is a vote for freedom.

    I challenge everyone on here to actually read up and learn about the Federal Reserve. It is quite apparent that those on here who support Romney and/or Gingrich have not done so. I thought about supporting one of them a couple months ago, but then decided to actually learn where the heck our money comes from and why it can just appear out of thin air to create more and more debt. Well, if people on here who support Romney, Gingrich, Santorum or Obama were to do the same as I did, they would NEVER vote for any of these men and they would never look at Washington or our media the same way again. The Fed is the single most powerful and corrupt entity in the US…and the world…along with the IMF, World Bank, etc. Please Google: The Creature Island or go to YouTube and simply search The Fed. There are many great documentaries now its its very dark and secret history. You will then now why I, and tens of millions of others, will only support Ron Paul and why we do all that we can to help others learn. Please do what I ask for your family, friends and yourself. Our entire monetary, economic and social systems WILL collapse if we don’t get Ron Paul into office. I have extensive experience in the business world…and it is doomed if we continue to allow the Fed to operate or put Romney, Gingrich or Obama into office.

    Santorum and Gingrich simply CAN’T because Newt didn’t get on the ballots of many states and Santorum….well it’s Santorum.

    It’s a two man race now. So Massachusetts demagogue snake in the grass or 76 year old doctor, veteran, 24 year Congressman…
