Tonight at 6:00 pm PST, the latest episode of “Many Psychos Flying Circus”…aka, a GOP Debate, takes place courtesy of Yahoo and ABC.

You can watch it on ABC and it should be live streaming at www.abcnews.com and yahoo.com (if we can snag an embed of the livestream, we’ll add it here).

There should be fireworks with this being Newt’s first debate as the front runner and the GOP Elite just begun its panicked attacks to knock Newt out fast and install the unlikeable Romney in his place.

See you then!

Breaking News:

Romney flip flops on his bet with Perry. He now bets Perry a Rolex, a Renoir, CC dues at Augusta, a Fabergé Egg, a Bentley and a Learjet but insists he’s not an elitist because he won’t let Perry pick the color of the Learjet.

Oh he’s already made that bet and thousands of workers lost and he won millions. It was called Bain Capital.

My cable crashed along with my internet connection so I watched the 1942 version of “Gaslight” and took the trash out.

I guess I only have one question.
Did President Obama win again?

Sorry GOP Genius Panel
Yucca Mountain has seismic issues and of course it is part of
the Colorado River Water Table.
Where do we get most of our water from in So Cal?
The rock at Yucca Mountain has been affected by Earthquakes and
“gasp” nuclear weapons testing
It is not stable.
Its just that you can’t find
any state anywhere that wants it
At Any Price
Mongolia is saying NO
As it stands any where they have nuke reactor that is where
you will have a permanent highly radioactive nuclear waste dump
that you have to safely manage and maintain for tens of thousands of years
Wow, what a conservative value!
Still like that nuke power? morons?

MY CLOSING THOUGHTS….

My debate rankings…

Top to Bottom….
1) Gingrich for not getting gutted. seeming to be authoritat¬ive and cool
2) Bachmann for creating strong attack lines (Newt/Romney)and seeming prepared to engage
3) Paul for ongoing consistency in (largely fringe) positions.
4) Perry for not falling asleep, not bumbling, seeming prepared, taking on a bit of economic theory
5) Santorum for not seeming too fringey in his POV and quite reasonable on the Palestine issue.

One BIG Loser: Romney. Milquetoast. Dancing around. No backbone, brittle. No fire in the belly. The hollow man.

He had one good moment re. labeling Gingrich as a foolish fire starter over Newt’s Israel/Palestine comments but could not capitalize on it.

Why didn’t Romney punch Gingrich in the gut pointing to his lost Speakership and resignation form the House?

Imagine him saying this:

“MR. GINGRICH HOW DARE YOU OFFER YOURSELF FOR PRESIDENT WHEN YOU WERE DRIVEN FROM THE SPEAKERSHIP OF THE HOUSE AND HAD TO RESIGN YOUR SEAT AS THE RESULT OF ETHICS CHARGES, YOUR CONFRONTATIONAL ENEMY MAKING STYLE, AND A GENERAL LACK OF LEADERSHIP. YOUR OWN PARTY REJECTED YOU AND MANY WHO SERVED WITH YOU HAVE EXPRESSED GRAVE CONCERNS ABOUT THIS BID FOR THE WHITE HOUSE. I JOIN THEM IN THAT CONCERN.

Not doubt the big news was that Romney lost. He’s just melting in the spotlight and worse made the biggest gaffe of the night with his $10,000. You list shows debates are not viewed in a vacuum. Romney is suppose the by the robot who does not make mistakes so for him to have the biggest gaffe is huge.

I seriously think this could be the end of Romney. Sure he will hover around 20 points with the establishment but there is serious room for someone to pass him or for Newt to explode up the charts. This is Casey Kasem. I’m out.

Reviewing four other blogger websites…..Mitt Milktoast Romney is the big loser at all four.

Back calculating from this source over 11,000 lives are saved a year with 68% compliance.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), an estimated 5,500 lives could be saved each year by increasing the level of safety belt use in the United States to 90 percent. Yet, only 68 percent of Americans wear safety belts. By contrast, Germany stands at 95 percent.

Now you wonder why I find that mentality stupid. Oh that’s right we have the freedom to be stupid. 🙄

http://www.bhsbees.com/safety_stats.htm

The point is you are using a right wing tactic where you are trying to use an exception to prove the the rule.

Paul wants to end EVERY safety requirement. How you can say he’s correct in any way is just beyond me?

If you like Ron Paul’s America Somalia is a good place to go.

On the plus side, Ron Paul seems to be the only candidate who is not marching to war with Iran.

Absolutely AdLib.

I don’t mean to sound so aggressive but you can’t let that right wing argument stand.

Let’s not forget regulations create jobs and innovation. Someone has to research and develop seat belts and airbags before they are implemented and of course someone is paid to make them.

The same goes with renewable energy technology. Eventually we are going to have to replace who industries and that’s where economic growth opportunities are for the future.

Good job KQ, I now have the job of showing the hubby how really bad Paul is. I agree some of what he advocates is interesting but to take him at 100% is to ask to be a resident of Somalia

It’s the same right wing crap when they attack so called “political correctness”. Sure it’s easy to pick spots where political correctness is silly. But the general notion that people should be more tolerant and sensitive to others in society who are different than them holds true no matter how people cherry pick silly exceptions.

One of my favorite sites is denialism and they show how using the exception to condemn the rule is a logical fallacy that leads to denialist beliefs.

Nailing down the nonsense in Paul’s position with hard data. Well done.

ROMNEYS LACK OF “FIRE IN THE BELLY” IS THE STORY OF THE NIGHT…

He had one good moment re. Gingrich as a foolish firestarte­r over Israel/Pal­estine but could not capitalize on it.

Why didn’t Romney punch Gingrich in the gut with his lost Speakershi­p and why it happened?

Imagine him saying this….”HOW DARE YOU RUN FOR PRESIDENT WHEN YOU WERE DRIVEN FROM THE SPEAKERSHI­P AND FROM THE HOUSE FOR ETHICS CHARGES AND YOUR LACK OF LEADERSHIP­. Your failings in your private life are one thing, but you carried that lack of integrity into the House and many of your fellow lawmakers from those days are coming forward to say you are not fit. I join them in that sentiment.”

Imagine.

I have read that he has a fierce temper. I wonder if it is that trait that keeps him from getting in touch with the “fire” of which speak. Obama has it. So did Bush. Clinton certainly did. All to very different ends and expressed in differing form and fashion, but there….Romney, the hollow man.

Every time I watch a GOP debate I think of this song. You’ll recognize some early Michelle Bachmann and Ron Paul work in the beginning.[img]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fi4K9Cus0_g&feature=related[/img]

With a bit of a mind flip
You’re into the time slip
And nothing can ever be the same
You’re spaced out on sensation
Like you’re under sedation
Let’s do the Time Warp again

Who in the debate was driving the cop car out of the JCP store? The moderators?

Well, after that debate I now need to watch a good movie. Something not a fantasy. Got enough of that with this debate. Good night to you all and thank you for letting me be part of your debate responses. They were truly more fun and a lot more interesting and knowledgable. See you tomorrow. Enjoy your evening with your love ones!

Ron Paul is awesome because 50% of what he says is perfectly reasonable and the other 50% is CrazyTrain. You never know what you are gonna get.

When are they going to have an actual debate?

You know, something where everyone has time to address policy issues and be as subtle or obvious as they need to be.

And then, I don’t know, actual journalists who call them on their answers and ask important follow up questions

Instead of going to the next twitter question from Duck_Fucker69.

I think when it downs to the final two, which in truth it is already but they have to give the others their time. I said earlier that I would like the moderators to have the facts in front of them before they ask the question. When the answer is given, they challenge the candidate with the facts and see how they respond.

That’s how it use to be. Actual journalists asking actual questions and demanding actual answers.

The primary stage has really gotten out of hand.
