Charlie Rose said...

Sorry, I missed Sesame Street when they were teaching alphabetical order.

Writer X said...

He's asking Bachman a question??? Confused...Interesting strategy.

AndrewPrice said...

More proof! Romney should have gone after Cain, but he went after Bachmann instead. I think this further suggests he and Cain and friends.

Writer X said...

Gag me with a spoon.

AndrewPrice said...

Does anyone know if Bachmann has kids?

AndrewPrice said...

Writer X, When you're done with the spoon, pass it around. I'm gagging too.

T-Rav said...

Ooh! Bev! Bev! Bachmann just answered my question for me! Now you know how many kids she has!

BevfromNYC said...

We haven't heard how many kids she has in the last 5 minutes. I had almost forgotten.

Writer X said...

Gee, does Bachman have children? Who knew.

T-Rav said...

Her conclusion sounded like an infomercial.

BevfromNYC said...

Is Michelle Bachmann a tax attorney. She forgot to say...

Writer X said...

I won't be checking out the web site. Sorry.

AndrewPrice said...

For Santorum to pretend to be anti-Washington is ludicrous.

T-Rav said...

Make sure Santorum is finished, guys.

Writer X said...

Spit it out Santorum. Ugh...

AndrewPrice said...

Right after attacking insiders, he now attacks Cain for being inexperienced? Seriously Santorum... go home.

Writer X said...

The old commentator guy looks like he needs a stiff drink.

T-Rav said...

Okay, so I didn't have much personal feeling about Santorum one way or the other, but now I really want him gone.

Writer X said...

Santorum has not done himself any favors in these debates.

T-Rav said...

Hey guys, where's that spoon? Anyone still using it?

DCAlleyKat said...

I think the reason TARP now leaves a bad taste in everyone's mouth is because of the dishonesty and the filure to fully inform we yhe people...

Unknown said...

Santorum: I hate to tell you this, but until the Constitution is amended to keep Congress from passing any tax legislation at all, there's always the possibility of abuse. But with Cain's plan, it would be transparent and easy for the average American to understand and jump on.

Writer X said...

These Bloomberg commercials using cutesy kids are damn annoying.

T-Rav said...

By the way, no kids talk like this in real life. Trust me. The most eloquent they get is when the Jonas Brothers come up in conversation.

AndrewPrice said...

Lawhawk, I agree. His attack is disingenuous because you could level the same criticism against ANY plan.

AndrewPrice said...

Isn't the third round usually a lightening round in these kinds of contests....


Today's question is "band names" are you ready?!

An 800-lb. Elephant said...

Hey, does anyone else see this RomneyCare thing right in the middle of the room? Anyone?

AndrewPrice said...

Punch him Herm!

AndrewPrice said...

Block granny?

T-Rav said...

I don't know about the rest of you, but I can't wait for the last round when we find out what the candidates' favorite colors are.

An 800 lbs Donkey said...

Pay not attention to the problems with Obamacare.

DCAlleyKat said...

I'm bored...

AndrewPrice said...

Greenspan. Good choice actually.

T-Rav said...

Ron Paul is about to have a stroke.

BevfromNYC said...

Oooh...oooh... final questions!
Boxers or Briefs! Boxers or Briefs! And for Michelle B. - French cut or Briefs!

T-Rav said...

Uh, wait. How is he a true insider? Hey, I asked you a question! Answer me! Let me finish!

AndrewPrice said...

T-Rav, I had that thought too! LOL!

DCAlleyKat said...

I'm not a Greenspan fan but at least he warned us...

Writer X said...

Well meaning?? Please. Grow a spine, Mitt.

AndrewPrice said...

DCAlleykat, That's actually what I meant. :)

The Entire Obama Administration said...

Yes...he's well-meaning. Not corrupt or agenda-driven or anything, just well-meaning. That's it.

AndrewPrice said...

Bev, I think we should finish Price of Right Style and have them all bid on the price of a bucket of soup. The closest without going over gets the nomination!

Writer X said...

LOLOL!

P.S. Does Bachmann have kids?

T-Rav said...

Bev, I'm not sure what you meant by that question, and frankly I'm not really sure I want to...

DCAlleyKat said...

She's right on!

AndrewPrice said...

Turning gay people straight does NOT make you a small business person!

T-Rav said...

Writer X, I'm not sure. Let's wait a little while and see if she happens to mention it.

DCAlleyKat said...

I'm actually happy to have seen and heard such a diverse group...

AndrewPrice said...

Paul is correct.

Writer X said...

Way to go, Ron!!! Way to create love.

T-Rav said...

Holy crap, they actually brought Solyndra up. Could...could Fast & Furious be next?

Unknown said...

All right, Paul! Repeal Dodd-Frank and Sarbanes-Oxley. Yay!

DCAlleyKat said...

I mean look what the Dems have to vote for!

Writer X said...

I'm guessing Red Coat Girl isn't a Perry fan.

AndrewPrice said...

Perry has the identical speak problem Bush had -- he gives have an answer, pauses stumbles, and then finishes. Every single sentence!

Writer X said...

Is Holder in the audience?? A girl can dream.

AndrewPrice said...

Writer X, You think?! LOL!

AndrewPrice said...

I hate to say this to Rick, but just because the whole government is in on the cronyism doesn't make it less crony.

AndrewPrice said...

Actually, they didn't own the homes and that was the problem-- the banks owned them.

Writer X said...

Oh, dear god. Charlie Rose needs to be tasered.

AndrewPrice said...

+10 for Newt! :)

T-Rav said...

Heh. Nice shot, Newt.

BevfromNYC said...

Ouch, Newt!

AndrewPrice said...

Writer X, I would LOVE to see him tasered! LOL!

DCAlleyKat said...

Huntsman looks lost...

BevfromNYC said...

Yea! Newt! You've got to be able to afford it to be able to buy it!! Yes.

Unknown said...

Mr. Bush: The more people who own homes the better, so long as they can pay for them. If you work hard, pay your bills and set aside money for important things, you should own a home. Otherwise, rent until you can afford to buy a home. Barney Frank, Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae screwed that concept up.

T-Rav said...

This is sort of a tangent, but I wonder if the Chinese are more of a paper tiger if they let on. Not expecting a clear answer, just wondering.

BevfromNYC said...

Who is that woman and why is she talking?

#Occupy Wall Street said...

You...you can't do that! You're supposed to be on the plantation and voting like us! How dare you!

DCAlleyKat said...

more lost jobs...say it Mitt!

AndrewPrice said...

T-Rav... Yes. I can do an article on it at some point if you want.

AndrewPrice said...

Bev, She's the Obama Administration Rep at the table.

T-Rav said...

Whoever said they were being disturbed by Romney's use of the word "fundamental," yeah, that's kind of troubling.

AndrewPrice said...

This is because of Obama. Obama causes poverty.

Writer X said...

Go, Perry!! He finally woke up.

T-Rav said...

Andrew, are you implying the Administration has only one rep at the table?

AndrewPrice said...

Yawn.

DCAlleyKat said...

wow Greek even Rick...

AndrewPrice said...

T-Rav, No, I count 4 -- Rose, the woman in red, the younger woman and Huntsman.

T-Rav said...

Okay, this is actually a good point. Unmarried couples and single-parent households actually do have higher poverty rates.

AndrewPrice said...

"don't tase me bro!"


"Ahhhhhh!!"

T-Rav said...

Who the heck was that yelling? Taser them too, while we're at it.

AndrewPrice said...

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! Stop saying that!!!!!!!!!!!!

T-Rav said...

There it is again!

AndrewPrice said...

"I was po before I was poor." Nice!

DCAlleyKat said...

yeah Herman poh noh moh...

T-Rav said...

300 comments or bust!!

DCAlleyKat said...

I think it was Huntsman...

AndrewPrice said...

I want to go to war with Europe.

DCAlleyKat said...

It was great to be with you all....

AndrewPrice said...

Must be nice to be from a rich family.... smug jerk.

BevfromNYC said...

What does it exactly mean to be poor in America?

AndrewPrice said...

Thanks for joining us DCAlleyKat! :)

T-Rav said...

Yeah, I don't think that's called "Huntsman is a brilliant economist," I think that's called "It's Utah."

T-Rav said...

Bye DC!

DCAlleyKat said...

I do not like Perry...

BevfromNYC said...

Andrew: If you and Santorum get together, We can have WWIII. Yippee!

Unknown said...

The left has defined deviancy down while at the same time defining poverty up. When "poverty" means only two wide-screen HDTVs, only two cars, only one air conditioner and only one Section 8 house, of course there are more people living in poverty than in the past.

T-Rav said...

Oof! I'll admit, that was a good closing line.

BevfromNYC said...

Dear Lord make it end.

AndrewPrice said...

I believe in tables too, there's just too much evidence to be a table-denier.

DCAlleyKat said...

Now for the MSM smearing ...

BevfromNYC said...

301! Way to go!

Writer X said...

That had to be the worst most convoluted final question ever. Charlie Rose needs to go away.

AndrewPrice said...

Thanks to everyone for coming! It's been a lot of fun! :)

BevfromNYC said...

Andrew, YOU ARE WRONG! Tables are suspect. I believe chairs are much more useful!

T-Rav said...

Well, this was interesting. That's all I got at the moment.

T-Rav said...

Personally, I believe in throwing chairs...

Unknown said...

My guess: The polls will show Romney moving up, Cain gaining a few points, Perry losing points, and the rest holding about where they were before the debate. I give the questioners a D+.

AndrewPrice said...

T-Rav and Bev, I believe in throwing tables! ;)

T-Rav said...

What I learned from tonight's debate:

-Bachmann has 5 biological kids and 23 foster ones.

-People really need to let Santorum finish.

-Ron Paul doesn't like anyone who won't destroy the Fed on Day One.

-Charlie Rose needs to be taken by the hand and led away from the news desk.

That's about it.

BevfromNYC said...

I was't aware that throwing furniture required a belief system, but okay! Just in case, if I ever invite you over to my home, promise me you will say "no". I like my table and I wouldn't want to risk it.

AndrewPrice said...

Bev, It's just believing in tables that requires a specific belief system... or Charlie Rose was lying to me.

Al Gore said...

If you don't accept that the fact that climate change exists, you are no different from a table-denier.

AndrewPrice said...

Oh Jeez, who let Algore in the room?

BevfromNYC said...

Hey, Al! Look over there --> Carbon credits!

Okay, someone lock the door and turn off the lights. He might come back.

T-Rav said...

Okay, here are my more serious thoughts on the debate:

Among the frontrunners, I think Cain did best. He started out a bit slow, but he built over time. He should be able to pad his numbers a little more.

Romney didn't do just great, but it's Romney. He stumbled some, but he was still pretty smooth.

Perry lost by not winning. I think this was actually better than his last performance, but he needed to really hit it out of the park to turn things around, and he didn't. I expect his numbers to maybe tick up a bit, but not much.

Among the also-rans, Newt did great again, Bachmann was mixed, Paul was...well, he was Ron Paul, Huntsman continued to irritate the heck out of me, and Santorum just needs to go away.

I give the moderators a hearty FAIL, not to mention Bloomberg.tv. The darn site buffered so much I missed nearly a third of the debate. Also, we should consider that this debate may not mean as much, given its limited availability.

Finally, collectively speaking, Commentarama is much smarter than the candidates are. That is all.
