With Mitt, Mr Newt, & Ricky Sanatorium to work with, Ted Koppel couldn't make that debate credible.
All John King had to work with was Ron Paul. Talk about a tough assignment for the moderator...
I think King could have done a better job pushing the clowns for answers. Especially when Mitt had his "Sarah Palin Moment" claiming he'll answer his own made-up question, and not the question being presented to him.

But I agree, Paul was pretty much the only NOT pandering to the religious right.

This is a good thing for Dems, as the repubs debate to see who can be the farthest right. None will be able to track back to the middle during the general election.

The only repubs enthusiead about this bunch is the radical right due to their hatred of the President.

They are the one's showing up in primary season with numbers much lower than the last.

So the candidates are debating and campaigning to get applause from this crowd.

These clowns don't realize yet how much that will hurt them during the general election.

Do they think woman voters want a ban against birth control? Heck, even men support birth control.

Gibbs....quiet!!

They think the messages are just what Americans want to hear. Woman were screaming for bans on Birth Control prior to the primary season.

Banning Birth Control that 99.9% of women use means JOBS!

Let them continue as is, Gibbs.

I love watching the repub part kill itself by chasing the religious right.

After all, who can ever forget the way he schooled Sean Hannity, live on Sean's Fox News Channel, after an Obama-McCain debate.
It never gets old for 'ol PooPoo to see Mr Gibbs playing keep away with Hannity's manhood. LOL!!!

I hope this is not true, That is despicable. someone please tell me that he did not vote for this.
• It wasn't in a linen closet, but his vote allowed a baby to be held by a nurse while it died after it was refused the nutrition and meds needed to help it live.

• The mother wanted it aborted. The abortion didn't work. When the baby was born alive, but premature, the baby's care was refused. It died as the nurse sat in a chair rocking it. You can thank Obama and his buddies for this. THIS FOLKS IS A LIBERAL. FORCE THE CHURCH TO GIVE OUT RUBBERS, BUT LET BABIES DIE. SCUM.

I'm willing to bet the ranch that Darryl Issa hearing quielty goes away now that repubs see it pushed Obama's approval rating up by pushing away Woman and Independents.

I bet they don't make a big show of this hearing going forward.

Obama co sponcered a bill when he was State Senator that banned medical care for a baby born live after a botched abortion. It was written after a nurse at a local Hospital testified to finding a baby, in a closet, dying from a botched abortion. The Hispital refused to give it medical care so the nurse held it for an hour until it died. He is evil personified.

Mangling facts, revising history and peddling more rightwing bs (with the added unhinged and disgusting personal smear of Obama for good effect). I am shocked! SHOCKED I tell ya!

Do you REALLY want to know the truth? Why do I doubt that?
Your point is not remotely true , of course. IL has had a law on the books since the 1970's mandating that physicians must provide full care to any baby surviving an abortion.
The bill in question was redundant to existing law, and was an attempt to limit the rights guaranteed by Roe v Wade.
Jill Stanek, the nurse who made the claim, has been thoroughly discredited, and has joined the ranks of Orly Taitz and Larry Sinclair as pariahs only Internet hacks like you will defend.
When was the last time she appeared even on FauxNews?
Your outrage is a crock.
But you already knew that.

More BULLSH!T by the crazy BALD FACED LIAR! Obama opposed legislation in 2001, 2002 and 2003...ergo he Would NOT have cosponsored it. t

Only anti-abortion cultists could accuse President Obama as supporting infanticide.

From Fact Check:“…At issue is Obama’s opposition to Illinois legislation in 2001, 2002 and 2003 that would have defined any aborted fetus that showed signs of life as a "born alive infant" entitled to legal protection, even if doctors believe it could not survive.
Obama opposed the 2001 and 2002 "born alive" bills as backdoor attacks on a woman’s legal right to abortion, but he says he would have been "fully in support" of a similar federal bill that President Bush had signed in 2002, because it contained protections for Roe v. Wade.…. Obama voted in committee against the 2003 state bill that was nearly identical to the federal act he says he would have supported. Both contained identical clauses saying that nothing in the bills could be construed to affect legal rights of an unborn fetus…..[snip]

Obama’s critics are free to speculate on his motives for voting against the bills, and postulate a lack of concern for babies’ welfare. But his stated reasons for opposing "born-alive" bills have to do with preserving abortion rights, a position he is known to support and has never hidden.

Yes, your evil President supported a bill to ban medical attention to babies that survive a botched abortion. I think the people who live in Illinois know a little more about your community organizer then you hicks do. He has to answer to God for what he has done, so I could care less, but you know nothing about the man.

Trying to change the subject? The legislation was not about premature birth. It was about Abortion. When a baby survives an abortion in Illinois, thanks to State Senator Barack Obama, it is illegal to give it medical attention. It is to be left to die. He is such a sweety. You will never get your facts about that horrible little man straight, because you are blind to his short comings.
