Open Chat... All Day, Every Day! Express Your Views, Debate, and Challenge the Views of Others!

In order to keep up with the nature of free, spirited debate, I wanted to place the chat feature at the top of the homepage. This ensures people can come here and share their views on anything they wish and not have it be related to any specific discussion. Here, people can share ideas, links, and views "unmoderated" and an their own pace. To me, this makes The Elephant in the Room blog truly a place for debate.

ABC Debate: December 10th, 2011 from Drake University

Did you watch? Yes, it was on a Saturday night during the holiday shopping seasonm which probably isn't good for viewership, but, if you did watch, who do you think won?

What was the most important moment?

... the best "gotcha" moment?

... the biggest flub?

... the funniest moment?

Did your pick for the GOP nomination win?

Give your opinions below. Thank you!


  1. Have seen this blog before and I love it. Thank you!

    Gingrich's response of loaning the presidency was great! I think that will be in the headlines.

  2. Romney is still the most wll-rounded. Not too extreme, not too much of a pussyfoot.

  3. Ron Paul / Judge Andrew Napolitano 2012

    Exit right or left and come to the forefront of what America stands for....

    Pau'ls radical ideas.... His beginnings....
    1.) End the wars -- Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Drug-war, etc, etc, etc.

    2.) Protect civil liberty -- repeal Patriot Act, Military Commissions Act, etc

    3.) End National Debt - No more debt increases -- it is not ethical to put debt on future generations

    4.) Federal Reserve Bank System -- Seek an investigation and audit of
    the Fed and it's cozy relationship with big banks and big corporate

  4. Ron Paul is a cook. Newt is the only one with balls. Well, he and Bachmann :)

  5. Don't you mean kook? Paul won.

  6. hahaha Ron Paul is not a cook or a kook and he won the debate!!

  7. ron paul is a kooky old isolationist

  8. Ok, I thought the comment about Paul not being a cook or a kook was pretty funny. I actually think (though I would not support him) Rick Santorum won.

  9. Newt won. Truth first!

    Romney's bet thing won't be as bad as the media wants it to be.

  10. Nice blog. Will def follow.

    1. Newt
    2. Perry
    3. Romney
    4. Paul
    5. Huntsman yes he did better
    6. Santorum
    7. Bachmann just get out please

  11. Newt was accused of 84 ethics violations, and forced to pay a $300k fine - not to mention all the personal baggage. You think he has the morals to run this country? I don't think so.

  12. Got it, got it, got it.

    Okay, so what does that have to do with the who won the debate? Fail.

    Newt won, and is way more powerful than Ron Paul (who I'm going to assume you're voting for).

  13. If Ron Paul was half as good a speaker as Newt he would win on his integrity alone.

    But as it is he always comes off stressed whiny and seems weak.

    He needs to stop with the high pitch bitchy rants.

    But I DO like him a lot.

    So who won? Newt of course. He's a smart guy.

    As far as Mittens is concerned ....Why do people still think he has a chance ?

    "hey Mittens, I'll bet you $10,000 you will not win the nomination"

  14. Huntsman won and he wasn't even there. These guys don't know anything about China.

  15. Ron Paul is not whining. He is trying to coax the American people to 'Wakeup'.....that is a 'tone' where he is so FEDUP and filled with frustration, it's hard to keep that tone down. Main stream media will not "air" all his 'good qualities'....Go to youtube for video and questions about him.....It will open your eyes........

    "I want to use all my strength, to resist the notion that I can run your lives, or run the economy, or run the world. I want to use that strength to repeal and reject that notion, and stand up and defend the principles of liberty." -Congressman Ron Paul
