    MKichele Bachman- the voters in America are not concerned about Obamacare right now and you have not gotten the message. It is all about jobs and the economy and taxes for the wealthy. Look at the signs people carry at these protests you do notr see any Obamacare protest signs. You, as usual, are out of touch with what the voters really want. You, who takes money from Obamacare in your business and from the Federal government, are not credible in that area.Your fifteen minutes of fame have passed. Your future air time will include your announcing your departure from the campaign and your crazy remarks that have endeared you to the crazies in the tea party.

    Mittens smirked when everyone was bashing Pee Wee Herman's 999, and how it gives the wealthy a tax cut, and everyone else pays more. But when the attack turned to Mittsy, he becameunglued and unpresidential. I cannot imagine any of these circus clowns in the white house.

    Every one of these candidates wants to protect the tax cuts for the wealthy that our country cannot afford. It appears that those republicans who make the most, do not want to share the burden. People like Hannity, O'Reilly, Limbag, Beck, Murdoch, and the Koch brothers have become the true welfare queens of 2011.

    Fireworks was Ok. Thats why they were there. But what did not impress me was Michele Bachamann shouting: Anderson, Anderson, Anderson so that he can allow her to answer. That looked a bit childish. It reminds me those days when we were at kindergarten school!

    I did not like when Romney touched Rick Perry on the shoulder. We do that to someone whom we think has no power on us(kids). I do not think Perry has no power on Romney. Both are still on looking for the job, no one has got even half way!

    Rick Perry sealed his own fate with his crude ineffectual debating tactics and allowing Mitt Romney to example the fact that he is far more knowledgeable and presidential. It's shocking to think someone with Perry's level of ignorance has been a governor of such an important state for ten years. Perry embarrassing Anderson Cooper by responding to Anderson with his "you ask the questions and I respond how I want to" was so disrespectful and another opportunity for the American public to witness and judge how far away from anything we'd ever want for a President Rick Perry is. It would be wise, if Perry really wanted the Republican agenda to move forward, to step down and allow intelligent, well spoken, polished, respectful prospects to continue the fight for the White House. His involvement in the Republican Presidential race has becoming a circus show and a compete embarrassment to the Republican Party and political process.

    what a freak show. Mittens getting very testy when challanged...Perry, well he's lost. Bahmann, and the rest don't have a chance so they try to shout and impose themselves into relevancy. Nothing here did any of them any good in a face to face with Obama.
