"Lesser-known candidates tussled for position, including former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, Texas Rep. Ron Paul, businessman Herman Cain and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich."-from the article

These are the candidates and their votes in a poll that asked "Who won the Republican Debate?"
Paul -11640
Gingrich -4890
Cain -2574
Romney -1944
Bachmann -1913
Santorum -858
Huntsman -323
Pawlenty -259

It seems our "lesser-known" candidates actually have people who know them. I'm tired of the media selecting candidates for us and telling who poses a threat to Romney, or Obama, or who is "electable". Stop shoving Rick Perry down our throats. He is another neo-conservative establishment politician parading his Christianity to get elected. We don't want or need any of his kind. The Ron Paul Revolution is spreading and growing and the Republican party better wake up to that reality or they will lose more elections and more credibility.

I don't care whether he proves a threat to Romney. I care that, by his past actions, Perry has shown that he proves a threat to the United States. Remember -- he's the one who wanted Texas to secede from the United States (another Civil War, anyone?). Say "NO" to him -- that's what he's shown he deserves.

Perry threatened to succeed from the union...then asked for a cut of the stimulus package. Hypocrisy.

We don't need another Texas governor who was a cheerleader, yes he was, look it up, messing thus country up again. Bush ran up the deficit 6 trillion with his "small government" Republican dealings.

Just say no to cheerleaders for president.

I would rather ave Omney and his inconsistencies over this loudmouth perry.

Btw Mitty, corporations are mot people.

Perry is a neo-confederate. Romney can't win because republicans don't like him except LDS republicans.

I hear Massachusetts loves Romneycare. He should run as a democrat.

Gov. Mitt Romney lobbied the credit ratings agency Standard & Poors in 2004 to raise his states credit rating in part because Massachusetts had raised taxes during an economic downturn two years earlier

Mitt Romney sat at the head of the table at a coffee shop [in Tampa, FL] on Thursday, listening to a group of unemployed Floridians explain the challenges of looking for work. When they finished, he weighed in with a predicament of his own.
"I should tell my story," Mr. Romney said. "I'm also unemployed."

On the other hand Hillary is the greatest threat to Obama's Democratic nomination for the 2012 general election. The Democrats are disgusted with Obama's inability to deliver on his promises. He's dropped another percentage point in the Rasmussen daily presidential poll.

Dosen't the Rasmussen poll have a, oh I dunno, date?

Something I can look up BESIDES your claims?

Also, when, exactly is Hillary running for President in 2012 Rifleman?

It's August 2011.

Or is this another 'misspoke?'
