President Obama decided to "hang out" at Google+ to be interviewed by interested Americans - and one would have to believe, based on this interview that Americans are basically interested in marijuana laws - making them a better audience for Ron Paul.
One would have thought Ron Paul had won the Florida primary instead of coming in fourth as his enthusiastic followers cheered loudly for his speech. One would hope all of us would have his passion for ideas and liberty at his age - or any age.
Santorum said his events have been filled to overflowing. He said his daughter Bella has been rallying and that she will come home in the next few days.
Santorum said a true conservative will be able to beat Obama and that Newt Gingrich isn't that candidate and enumerated a whole hosts of issues in which Gingrich has not been conservative in his point of view. He said that Gingrich went into Florida saying he could beat Romney and it isn't happening. He said he's running a conservative campaign and isn't in debt as Gingrich is. He noted that every few weeks it is someone else up against Romney as the conservative alternative.
Santorum said that while he supported Romney four years ago, but that he hasn't acted that way since. He said Romney has had a long history of ripping candidates and this is because he doesn't have a record to run on. He said that money won't be a factor in the general election as the news media and the Democrats will rip him apart.
Gingrich said Mitt Romney is running dishonest ads and that this is the conspiracy of the establishment. He said his liberal record, the fact that people like George Soros has compared him favorably. He said his fundraising is picking up after his money bomb after his South Carolina primary victory. He disagrees with Romney that the economy is improving and that it is weak across the boards.
Gingrich said he won't embarass himself by singing as Governor Romney did on the trail.
Reagan said Pat Buchanan bolted the GOP to run for president so he also is an opportunist in his view. He pointed to Gingrich's record in leading the GOP to control of the House. He doesn't recall his father Ronald Reagan saying anything about Gingrich, but said Gingrich has been supportive of the Reagan legacy and policies.
Reagan said Gingrich has had so many negative ads run against Gingrich that this is why his poll numbers are unfavorable versus Obama. He said that Gingrich sees Romney as liberal and that the candidates aren't following his father's commandment to not trash one's own party members. He noted that his father voted as a liberal Democrat until his daughter convinced him of conservatism's strengths and said Gingrich also moved from being a Rockefeller Republican to a conservative.
Walker said he is pro-worker if not pro-union. He said the real issue is that union bosses object to workers being forced to join unions. He said he's received money from our of state but that the opposition brought in resources and people from out of state to get him recalled. His movement has attracted the small donors, he said.
Walker said that there isn't fear among GOP governors about promoting right to work in their states.
Hickam said the military is the real big player in space. There is the NASA robot in space program and humans in space program. He said we need to get humans back in space and that Gingrich seems to remember the stimulus that the space program provided our economy with new ideas and technologies.
Hickam said that we should aim for getting back into Earth's orbit from any airport and other innovative approaches. Then this can progress to Moon colonisation similar to the South Pole station. He said it is wrong that the US has to buy a seat on a Russian Soyuz shuttle to get back to the space station. He cited commercial flights coming into vogue as with Elon Musk's efforts.
Diaz-Balart said he doesn't know why Jeb Bush isn't endorsing anyone. He said he is endorsing Romney because of the economy which Romney understands and can turn around. He added that Romney has the best shot in defeating Obama and feels good about his prospects to save our nation. He said that there is a hot race among bright good candidates and the negative attacks can have their effect. Ingraham noted that Obama's positives are going up and Diaz-Balart responded that Obama will get hammered in the general election, He said he doesn't like negative ads but they will pale versus what Obama will sling at the GOP candidate.
McCollum said that Gingrich is making his case and that the race is tightening. He said Romney isn't reaching out to the Tea Party. He said Romney has at least as much baggage as Gingrich if not more and that his tax plan is weak and afraid of criticism. He said Gingrich has the ability to shake things up in Washington. He said Gingrich has many ideas that are visionary. Ingraham countered that Gingrich spent his time on the Sunday talk shows complaining which is what people do when they are losing. She said Romney is organized and doing things candidates should do. He said Gingrich has the skills and experience as a true conservative.
