Coming to you live from the city where money rules and the majority of people lose big, it’s the GOP Debate in Las Vegas!

We’ll be live blogging during the debate tonight so pull up a slot machine stool and place your bets on the horse that you think will extend their lead or trip and fall!

The debate begins tonight at 5:00 pm PDT/8:00 pm EDT on CNN.

Though there have been a number of debates, this should be an interesting one. Coming on the heels of Occupy Wall Street growing big and becoming more legitimized, Herman Cain’s one-gimmick hollowness rocketing him to the top of the polls, Romney being frozen in the polls with 75% of Republicans wanting someone else and Rick Perry and the verge of tumbling out of the race or climbing back in.

Add to that Romney’s latest quote about wanting millions of Americans to be thrown out of their homes more quickly so speculators can buy them and rent people’s homes back to them at a profit, it should be a busy night for Romney, Cain and Perry as they try to double down on their hands and win big.

Sorry about all the Vegas puns…though the term that really comes to mind when it comes to this Republican field, is “craps”.

    Oh!
    The debate has started?

    I thought that AZ and Las Vegas were the same time right now.

    Perry actually said that he’d “bump plans with you, brother?”

    Wow.

  2. AdLib says:

    Rick Perry’s Health Insurance Plan: “Stop illegal immigration!”

    Huh?

    Loved Romney and Perry shouting at each other like kids on a playground!

      Yeah, that was weird. I thought he was going to say they come here for health care, which is what a lot of rightwingers say. They don’t realize Mexico has national health care. A lot of Americans are starting to go down there for treatment.

  3. javaz says:

    Cain will say that women must be forced to carry babies to full-term even in cases of rape and incest.

    Cain will not be able to explain his 9-9-9 plan, but will state that the working class and poor will accept paying more in taxes under his plan so that the rich can pay less.

    Romney and all the rest will declare that life begins at conception.

    Perry will try to fade into the background.

    Huh oh, Mitt and Rick getting nasty!!

  5. AdLib says:

    Herman Cain’s Health Care Plan: “Die, Die, Die.”

  6. AdLib says:

    Romney’s looking a bit tense.

    while we’re watching the circus

    Bank of America is, right now, shifting derivative­s in its Merrill Lynch investment banking unit to its depository arm, which has access to the Federal discount window and IS protected by the FDIC thus, backstoppi­ng $75 Trillion Of Bank Of America’s Derivative­s Trades.

    heeeeeeeee­eeeeeeeeee­llo America wake up!

    Ron Paul: “I said it last time, when it comes to health insurance, let churches perform heart transplants.”

  9. AdLib says:

    This is entertaining so far, letting them tee off on each other! And this debate comes at a pivotal time for most of them.

    Romney did do his double-talking best while under fire for Romneycare…but he makes no sense. Universal health care is loved in MA but should be hated nationally. Was a miracle in MA but an unConstitutional disaster if put in place elsewhere.

    Does any Repub buy this obvious BS?

    I think that Occupy Wall Street will be mentioned and Mittens will say that he empathizes with the 99% and then he’ll say something about his 1,574 page Job Plan.

    Perry will say something about nothing.

    Bachmann and Ron Paul will accuse PBO of divisiveness and causing the peasants to revolt.

    Newt will mention his running credit account at Tiffany’s.

    Huntsman will say something that sounds sane.

    Cain will mention electrocuting Mexicans and the crowd will erupt into applause and cheers.

    Electric Fence for the drinking game!

  11. AdLib says:

    Bam! Romney just trashed Gingrich and made him admit, after Gingrich got vicious on Romneycare…that Gingrich supported it during the Clinton Admin!

    Hilarious!

    The crowd will applaud and cheer when Cain says that he wants to electrocute Mexicans.

    I think that Occupy Wall Street will be mentioned and Mittens will say that he empathizes with the 99% and then he’ll say something about his 1,574 page Job Plan and how it’s imperative to speed up foreclosures before the holidays.

    Perry will say something about nothing.

    Bachmann and Ron Paul will accuse PBO of divisiveness and causing the peasants to revolt.

    Newt will mention his running credit account at Tiffany’s.

    Huntsman will say something that sounds sane.

  13. AdLib says:

    Santorum is kicking Romney in the ass and Romney is trying to say, “Romneycare is great when I did it but is unworkable when a black man as President does it!”

    Ha, Adlib! I’ll put mine back in storage for use in one of the next 22 ones that they have planned. 😆
