It wasn’t the debate tonight that surprised me..nothing new was exposed under the sun. Ron Paul was as he said he is: consistently constitutional. Rick Santorum fell from grace by trying to act like all the previous bad votes he did in Congress were not his fault—and he has a point…It’s just the way Washington forces you to work. He really got some big boos when he said he was a team player.
Most people know the “system” is corrupt.
Newt Gingrich had no great moments, but if he ran on getting our own energy here at home and telling the rest of the world to go fly a kite like he said—He’d probably win.
Mitt Romney did well, said all the right things—no doubt it will be announced that he won. But, at the very end of the debate we saw his dark side. John King asked him a question, and Mitt was pontificating his usual politician BS style, and King called him to answer the question, and Mitt snapped back with that “How dare you question me.” attitude. Newt can pull it off. Mitt looked arrogant.
We have the supreme arrogant in the White House now, we don’t want another.
At the end of the debate there really was no clear winner..everyone had a few good points, but it was after the debate that I was surprised at Ann Coulter’s piece on why all us ‘morons” don’t get it. Mitt Romney is the best candidate according to her. She really has no clue.
I’d like to help her out to WHY Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin, Sean Hannity, Sarah Palin, and many others are scared of Mitt.
Here’s a few of her comments, and my…”help.”
Ann Says: Romney became deeply pro -life as governor of the aforementioned liberal state and vetoed an embryonic stem cell bill. (Meanwhile, Newt Gingrich lobbied President George W. Bush to allow embryonic stem cell research)
Nobody Says: We have all seen the video Ann, of Mitt being FOR pro-choice…he was a pretty big boy when he took that stance, and now he has changed. (flip-flop) Also– So what if he was elected in a liberal state? That means that a lot of liberals thought he was pretty moderate. And George Bush’s embryonic stem cell research was on only the embryo’s that had already been frozen. Bush was adamant that no more be harvested. At the time, Nancy Reagan was pushing really hard for it. Remember Ann?
Ann Says: The chestnut about Mitt Romney being pushed on unsuspecting conservatives by “the Establishment” is the exact opposite of the truth. The Establishment, by any sensible definition, is virulently opposed to Romney.
Nobody Says: Ann Coulter thinks the “establishment” is Rush Limbaugh and FOX news. To the American people “the establishment” is the old Rockefeller Republican big government part of the party that we are tired of. That big Rockefeller government was endorsed and lead by the Bush family, who endorses Mitt. It’s as simple as that., Ann. George W. Bush turned into a big government Rockefeller Republican and his family support Mitt Romney. THEY are the establishment, not the conservative TV and Radio hosts.
Ann Says: But instead of popping Champagne corks over our final triumph over Rockefeller Republicanism, some conservatives are still fighting old wars, rather like an old cold warrior prattling about the Soviet Union after the rest of us have moved onto the war on terrorism.
Nobody Says: When was the final triumph over Ann? Was it over when Daddy Bush said, “There WILL be a New World Order? Was it over when his son signed the North American Treaty? Or when he expanded government spending? When he came out and said, “Well the bankers got a little too greedy” and started the bailouts of the bank, with just a “Okay, no big deal here.” and changed the whole world?
Tell me Ann, when did that big government Rockefeller part of the party stop? Hasn’t the whole Bush family been trying to get Jeb as President?
Ann Says: The obsession with sticking it to the Establishment (which includes Christine O’Donnell, but excludes Bill Kristol) by voting for a loose cannon demagogue or a crusading Catholic who can’t seem to move the conversation past contraception is as pie-in-the-sky delusional as anything dished by Democrats carrying on about “green jobs.”
Nobody Says: Ron Paul is not a loose cannon. If he is a loose cannon then so is our Constitution. You are a Constitutional lawyer, are you not? And whether you liked his answer tonight on attacking Iran, (Ron is against it)he is right on one thing. Another war would sink us economically like Russia. We have 45 bases around the area..war should be avoided at all cost.
Still, most conservatives think Iran is another Hitler waiting to happen.
And Ann…Rick Santorum did not start all the contraception talk, it was Obama who set that whole thing up. That conversation is being fueled by liberals, not Santorum. (Wow…Ann Coulter, the women who wrote the bible on liberal dirty tactics ignores her own books. Amazing.)
Ann Says: Meanwhile, Romney cheerfully campaigns on, the biggest outsider and most conservative candidate we’ve run for president since Reagan, while being denounced by the Establishment as “too Establishment.”
Nobody Says: He may not be from Washington, but he is the son of a Senator. Many believe that the big corporations and money have taken over most of our politicians. (Wow, that’s pretty much a fact.) Obama will paint Mitt as the big rich Wall Street guy and he will lose. Mitt will get mad in a debate, like he did tonight. It would be a VERY close race….and they would give it to Obama to prevent race riots.
I can’t say tonight as I walked around the block and looked at the stars that I felt inspired at all by any of it. In a debate, Newt would be the best debater against Obama. That’s just my Nobody’s Opinion. I think Sarah Palin and Thomas Sowell agree.
