It sure feels like the air is going out of the GOP Primary balloon with Mitt Romney sucking all the oxygen up out of the room into his completely hollow body.
Huntsman’s out, the weight of the GOP Elite has come down on Newt and Santorum so Newt’s tamed down his attacks on Romney, Santorum’s muted it a bit.
This is essentially the penultimate debate before the South Carolina primary…which is looking like the final opportunity for any of the others to stop Romney so logically, they should come out guns-a-blazin’ against him…but expecting logic from Republicans is like expecting honesty…from Republicans.
Tonight’s debate can be watched on Fox News and at http://foxnews.com at 6:00 pm PST/9:00 pm EST. Just remember to change the channel at the end and before the Fox propagandists start up if you’re watching on a full stomach.
Not just me. Racism aside, this was the most jaw-dropping part of the night which apparently only Juan Cole and I made note of. I’ll crosspost this as there are so many good points how their complete ignorance is dangerous, apart from being incredibly ironic.
Perry talks Crazy about Turkey, but is Par for GOP Course
No doubt with the hard right Gingrich won the debate by far. To the ravenous right wing Juan Williams was a proxy for President Obama. Then again these are the same people that think ever African American is the same. The MSM meme is that Newt was sending out dog whistles tonight but I watched the clips. They sounded to me like Gingrich was leading barking bloodhounds and a group of cowards with white sheets over their heads in a chase of a black man in a dismal South Carolina swamp.
The GOP could not have shown their disdain towards MLK’s legacy more.
As someone on Twitter said, they aren’t using dog whistles they have a doggone PA system.
I haven’t seen this much racism on display for the nation to witness in a while.
That’s why I hate old memes like ‘dog whistles’. There is a sea change in the racism and xenophobia coming from the right so using those old phrases that are nothing more than quaint cliches does not describe today’s reality.
Al Sharpton had a series of letters written to Dr. MLK from Segregationists. Things written like an “arrogant”, “dark skinned Hitler” who wanted to “take from White people” and “lead us to Communism.”
I got a chill. I already knew all that was racist. “Arrogant” I knew was ‘uppity’ but I thought the others were newer proxies, or that Communism was another old bogeyman they had substituted for N*****.
Silly me. It’s almost word for word to what they say now. Like some sick subculture that has survived, an invisible empire unto itself.
These FOX pudnuts are pathetic. I can’t watch.
Ed, on The Ed Show is going after the crowd at the debate and the racist booing.
That was a pretty well dress attendance to that debate. As I watched them leaving I saw one person of color and I think he was the only other guy besides Juan that FOX has on staff.
A lot of 1%-ers from the midwest like to spend January in Myrtle Beach, Sally. Might explain the low numbers of riff-raff there.
There were lots of black folks there but they were out of camera range. You know, the ones holding brooms, mops, cleanup rags…you know doing useful work for minimal wage.
Well, that is true, Murph.
The Europeans must have millions of troops on their many, many, many borders….oh wait. They don’t. The have control over who gets hired using a national work id system. It has worked for years. They do not want to lose this issue and they want their sponsors to continue to hire the undocumented.
And yet he calls it “my Super PAC.”
“I just can’t control “my” people.”
Romney LUVS his SuperPac…..he lies about lying.
McCain Feingold is gone…bozo.
Wow, Newt, that was a hit below Romney’s Super Pac belt.
And Mittens delivers a kick to Newt’s newtons in retaliation.
😆 Newt’s newtons!
Kick him in the junk mail! Kick him in the junk mail! Kick him in the junk mail!
Yah, Romney, those assault rifles and automatic weapons leave a lot of meat on that Elk. NOT
The fact that people are now able to carry guns into national parks under Obama shows how he wants to take all our guns away…. ?
The “dodgy factor” is displayed graphically on FOX’s website. They have dodge-o-meters for each candidate. funny…
If there was a God all their pants would burst into flames.
They certainly should have noses longer than Pinocchio.
The flame part will come later, KQ. Right now the crew is cleaning up the throne after He fell off laughing at the thought that all these guys claim to be Christians.
Oh, Romney, you don’t pay income taxes on your savings over there in that cayman account.
Nice. Newt takes credit for Clinton’s balanced budget.
Yup after the crash Chile’s plan is going to have a massive funding hole in it for years to come.
I knew that sounded fishy, Murph. Thanks.
