Uh... the only reason there's any "regulatory uncertainty" because of Obamacare and Dodd-Frank is because Republicans want to repeal them. If we just let them be, there'd be no uncertainty. Don't be a dumb, Huntsy.

Huntsman's response was so detailed that all responses look like copycats. Nice.

I just hope Trump doesn't turn into some kind of Berlusconi-esque Teflon man.

WOW. Not only is Romney using the Romney-Smirk, he's leaning as far back from Perry as possible. Maybe he knows bad things could happen when Perry tries to do math.

What Huntsman is saying would be red meat conservative rhetoric in any sane country but in America it's considered DINO-speak without constant references to big government, federal waste and the like.

I feel bad for fact-checkers out there. If you dealt with every response you could write a novel.

Yes, let the country default instead. How can someone cheer for that?

Did Bachmann just criticize the Bush tax cuts? (and therefore extending them?)

Jobs? Please have Cain talk about the 9-9-9 plan!

I have to say that with each debate, my respect grows for Romney.

I've found that a lot of left-leaners I know respect him. One of my best friends, a liberal from a Democratic family, just loves the guy.

You could see the gears grinding in his head when he was talking about what 0 divided by two is.

9-9-9 again. But I liked his joke.

And what was with Romney's praise of Texas. And his joke.

He's aware that his economy plan sounds like a pizza deal, I assume?

This crowd is ridiculous. They are only cheering for these talking points and if someone says something of substance, they are silent. It's maddening!

Don't question the Bachmann, she heard a question and answered that question. It just wasn't the question the rest of us heard.

By the end of this election, anyone who doesn't know Mitt Romney spent 25 years in the private sector is an idiot. Tongue

Don't get me wrong, I still hate him and think that he's a craven/spineless douchebag but at least he isn't acting like a dolt when it comes to entitlements when he could easily make his rhetoric sound closer to the conservative norm.

I think we should implement a 6% corporate tax, 6% income tax, and 6% sales tax.

lol @ getting our tax code competitive in the world.  Does that mean Romney wants to raise taxes to be equal to the rest of the West?
