- NEWT WENT ON THE OFFENSIVE AND MIGHT HAVE NEUTRALIZED THE EFFECTS OF HIS EX-WIFE'S REVELATIONS.
- MITT DID NOT HANDLE THE TAX FORM NON0ISSUE WELL.
- RON PAUL IS A NUT-JOB.
- RICK SANTORUM IS A SANCTIMONIOUSNESS PRIG - WHO IS RIGHT ON MANY MANY ISSUES.
BUT I STILL LIKE MITT.
I THINK THE TRULY MOST IMPORTANT DAMAGING MOMENT OF THE NIGHT CAME WHEN RICK SANTORUM EXPLAINED HOW NEWT WAS A LOUSY LEADER WHEN HE WAS SPEAKER.
THIS COMPLETELY CORROBORATED SUSAN MOLINARI'S DESCRIPTION OF NEWT - ONE WHICH MANY ON THE EXTREME RIGHT POOH-POOHED ON THE BASIS OF THE FACT THAT MOLINARI IS A MODERATE REPUBLICAN.
SANTORUM IS NOT A MODERATE AND HE AGREES: NEWT IS A LOUSY LEADER WHO IS UNRELIABLE, ERRATIC AND SHOULD NOT BE TRUSTED WITH THE OVAL OFFICE.
HERE'S RICK CORROBORATING MOLINARI: SANTORUM:
I will give Newt Gingrich his due on grandiose ideas and grandiose projects. I will not give him his -- his -- his due on executing those projects, which is exactly what the president of the United States is supposed to do. Four years into his speakership, he was thrown out by the conservatives. It was a coup against him in three. I served with him. I was there. I knew what the problems were going on in the House of Representatives when Newt Gingrich was leading this -- leading there. It was an idea a minute, no discipline, no ability to be able to pull things together.HERE'S ROMNEY'S RESPONSE - WHICH IS THINK WAS GREAT:
KING: Governor Romney, you're raising your hand to come in the conversation. I want to let you in on the conversation, but also, as I do, you put an ad on the air paid by your campaign, not one of the super PAC ads, calling the Speaker an unreliable leader. Why?
Well, let me go back and address first what you just heard. What you've listened to, in my view, and the Speaker's rendition of history going back to 1978 and his involvement in Washington, is, in my view, a perfect example of why we need to send to Washington someone who has not lived in Washington, but someone who's lived in the real streets of America, working in the private sector, who's led a business, who started a business, who helped lead the Olympics, who helped lead a state. We need to have someone outside Washington go to Washington. If we want people who spent their life and their career, most of their career, in Washington, we have three people on the stage -- well, I take that back. We've got a doctor down here who spent most of his time in the surgical suite -- well not surgery, in the birthing suite. (APPLAUSE) ROMNEY: But I think America has to make a choice as to whether we're going to send people who spent their life in Washington go represent our country or, instead, whether we're going to lead -- have someone who goes who's been a leader in the private sector and knows how the economy works at the grassroots level
