The audience was told before the debate that cheering wildly and booing

was not allowed. You could still hear mild examples of it. That ban took a whole lot of thunder out of Newt's performance.

1. Exactly!

 

You could SEE it...lol

I swear, at one point it almost looked as if he was going to cry because he couldn't get any hmph out of them.

9. Makes a big difference in who the mods are.

 

Nothing like being able to hear how utterly stupid Newt sounds and being able to hear the contradictions and distortions without a lot of noise to distract you. Great move!

3. Cheering and booing SHOULDN'T be allowed in any "debate."

Newt feeds off of his audiences...you can almost see his eyes light up when he talks about "all of Obama's failed policies" and everyone starts cheering. It should be about the difference between the candidates and what they would do differently, not a constant Obama bashing.

We'll see what happens on CNN Thursday but I'm not holding my breath.

4. These are not debates

These are performances, opinions voiced without any facts to back them up, attacks against Obama
without him there to refute.

This is entertainment for the masses and the masses need to applaud or boo as the case may be.
These performances are nothing more than unpaid ads.
These 'debates' are a farce, just like the candidates.

5. Yeah, I totally agree!

That's why I put "debate" in quotes.

7. What are they afraid of

That the rest of the world will see our dirty laundry? Let the fools applaud, cheer and boo. I think it shows the world that not all of us are that dumb.

10. Castro has out-lived a lot of his enemies...

11. It always amazes me when the GOP brings up 'God' ...

like when Bachmann, Perry, and one other of 'em said that GOD told them to run for the office of the presidency....

BUT if that is what they truly believe then what do they think of GOD letting Obama be elected in 2008 ???

Pisses me off, just like when the GOP candidates say that if the American public elects a republican president in 2012 then that will be what America wants and that is the direction the country should go in - but they disregard that the American public elected Obama in 2008 and that was what WE the American public wanted/wants and all that the GOP has done since the first day that President Obama too office has been to obstruct EVERYTHING that Obama has tried to do !!! Grrr...
