Mitt Romney at times looked pitiful when Rick Santorum was berating him over some of his policies when he was the governor of Massachusetts namely the law regarding felons, convicted or time served having their voting rights re instated. We heard Rick use the term “African Americans” a bunch of times as he made his point. He pointed out to Romney that he was a flip flopper when he voted against a law that wrongly keeps blacks out of the voting both over other races due to their percentage-wise higher rate of incarceration.
It was one of the better debates. Ron Paul needs to get out of the race. As I indicated Rick Santorum is a rising star. And Huntsman endorsing Mitt really does not amount to a hill of beans,
Oh, and how could I forget the fireworks between Newt Gingrich and Juan Williams? That was interesting. Newt talked down to Juan like Southern men often do to blacks. The audience was party to the beating that Juan took by booing him. At first I thought they were booing Newt but it soon became clear that they were booing old Juan. What is Juan exactly? He talks like a Dem but walks like a Repub? He is in the crosshairs simply because he is not conservative enough and the good white folks know that he used to be Dem, so I heard.
Juan you need to get off the fence and stop pretending to be a conservative. You can be an Independent if you want to save face. But nobody is buying your conservative cred.
