I inadvertently livetweeted the whole debate:
Why is Mitt taking a shot at Ron Paul? What possible gain?
Newt: I used to be someone important
TPaw gets better of Mitt's lawn
Who will try to top Santorum by actually proposing negative taxes?
Bachmann seething with not liking TPaw, feeling seems mutual
MB doubles down on TPaw=Obama
That Herman Cain alliance oughta net Mitt 1 or 2%, but please go back to the all Bachmann-TPaw format
Wallace: Your campaign sucks. Newt: You suck.
Huntsman: Where am I? Idaho? Ohio?
Wallace: Are you an idiot? Cain: In what respect, Charlie?
Cain: I have learned more, and i should have this down in 8 years
Huntsman proposes Great Border Wall of China
Cain: My statements are a joke. Deeth: I'm with ya there.
Cain: America as gated community?
Newt, who calls Obama "food stamp president," bashes Obama for making attacks
Ron Paul seems to have loudest claque
Fox: You raised taxes. Mitt: I don't believe in raising taxes and didn't raise taxes, and it doesn't count because it's Massachusetts
TPaw: It doesn't count because it's Minnesota
Bachmann: It doesn't count because it's Minnesota
Yay, another TPaw Bachmann fight! what if the fetuses were smoking untaxed cigarettes?
TPaw looking defensive, gets all double negative. (Legislators can be "Pure" executive have to govern)
Santorum: I'm still here
All hands go up for Grover Norquist.
Newt: I used to be important
TPaw gets a do-over on Obamneycare. Mitt's face: why is this guy on my stage?
The do-over is still too nice, Mitt makes a joke of it and goes Tenther. And it doesn't count because it's Massachusetts
Ron Paul backed into a corner of free market vs state's rights, gets applause from claque anyway
Santorum getting noticably desperate for time, says Jeezus trumps 10th
No one on stage is as comic relief crazy as Mike Gravel. Or Am I just so numbed by the hard right drift that it doesn't SEEM as crazy?
Most embarrassing potty break of Bachmann's life
Paul: Opens mouth. Paul crowd: YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY
Huntsman: Yup, still here.
And of course the Palin Question goes to Bachmann
Newt: Rudy Giuliani used to be someone important
Praising the troops gets TPaw an easy applause line
Wonder what neo-Con(federate) Rick Parry will say about "wars of independence for another nation"? Yee-haw. perhaps?
Newt thinks debate is against moderators
Huntsman just itching for a DOS attack from Anonymous
Where's Herman: off making a delivery? I said extra cheese!
TPaw has this down: gets applause first for Troops Good, now for Israel Good. Soon to come out in favor of baseball
Santorum vs. Ron Paul: that's an interesting fight... wish they had let it go on.
Cain: what I really meant was
Fox makes a Ron Paul drug joke. Should have invited Gary Johnson
Did *Rick Santorum* just say "tramples the rights of gays"?!? Oh, just in Iran.
Ron Paul is in the same party as these folks?!?
Newt: Godwins Law Fail
Cain: What I really meant was
Bachmann should have prepped a better answer for "submissive" question. Could have homered, gets a single
Mitt tries to talk about gay marriage without saying anything. Runs out of stuff to say and has to commit.
Huntsman takes high road on civil unions, loses votes
Santorum probably jumping up and down: Me next! Me Next!
I haven't heard Ron Paul say GOLD all night
Santorum really working for that BVP endorsement
Mitt: If I say enough, it buries my answer
Morrie Taylor was much more entertaining than Herman Cain
Newt tries to ride Paul's Sound Money train
SANTORUM gets the gold question? Paul: Me next! Me Next!
Santorum calls Paul "mostly wrong"
in honor of debate I'm drinking tea
Huntsman: Repeal No Child Left behind. Applause from 2007 Democrats
Closing statements: Santorum namechecks Grassley, complains about time
Paul: GOLD! Drink!
Bachmann: ONE... TERM... PRESIDENT!
All candidates come out in favor of I Love America. SO there's room on the other side of that issue
Most candidates shake hands with crowd, Paul and Santorum continue debating each other
