I participated in the first Twitter Presidential Debate with Tea Party and Republican presidential candidates including Michele Bachmann (@TeamBachmann), Herman Cain (@THEHermanCain), Newt Gingrich (@NewtGingrich), Gary Johnson (@GovGaryJohnson), Thad McCotter (@ThadMcCotter), and Rick Santorum (@RickSantorum). I was most impressed with Gingrich, Bachmann, and Santorum.

Gingrich definitely has a handle on what is going on in DC, and is able to couple that with what needs to be done – at least in talking points. (Talking points are the basis for all things campaign related and applies to all candidates.) I really want to research his plan, which he calls the “Jobs and Prosperity Plan,” which includes no tax increase; 100% expensing; reduce business tax to 12.5%; eliminate cap gains & death tax; audit and reform the Federal Reserve; repeal the following legislation: Dodd-Frank, Sarbanes-Oxley, Community Reinvestment Act; break up Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae; repeal and replace Obamacare and fully develop American energy. That appears to be a fairly solid approach, on the surface, but I need to research it more.
Bachmann, no doubt, is the poster-candidate for the Tea Party movement and can invoke a passion that I have only seen among tea party members. Repealing Obamacare is the core of her campaign. Again, courting the passionate anger and distrust of the federal government by tea party members. Will it be enough? I don’t think so. She is saying the right things, and is gaining momentum because of it, however.
Santorum, as far as I’ve seen, was the only candidate that mentioned God in his responses to tweeters’ questions (I need to go back and look at all the tweets to be sure). That was very interesting, I thought. Many of his responses reflected on founding principles given to us by God. If I can see that coupled with a better explanation of his plan for America, he would become a very strong candidate.
I would have to say that Newt Gingrich won the debate, but does not have the buzz that some of the other candidates have, especially Michele Bachmann and Herman Cain.
Disappointed that other candidates like Mitt Romney, Ron Paul, and Jon Huntsman didn’t participate. Hopefully SE Cupp (@secupp) will moderate another Twitter debate in the near future and that other candidates will join in.
Abe and Anna share their thoughts on the final installment to the Harry Potter Movie Phenomenon – Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part 2. Watch as Abe and Anna share their favorite movie moments, discuss who is hotter – Hermione or Ginny for Abe and Harry or Ron for Anna – and what they would have as their Patronus. An ant? Really, Abe?
HP 7.2 came out last Thursday/Friday at midnight, and The Abe-N-Anna Show was there to capture the moment. Check out what the fans had to say:
All the fans were sad, but for many, Hogwarts will always be there.
Thanks to the wonderful team at Marquee Cinemas at Southpoint 9 in Fredericksburg, VA for allowing us to film on this historic night in movie history.
So, we discussed the technology we are trying to use with BlogTalkRadio. And then we discussed Harry Potter, which comes out tonight at midnight! We are totally excited, but we won’t be seeing it until Saturday.
Find out what videos we are shooting this evening and participate in our poll on Facebook: For the gals, who is the hottest of them all – Harry or Ron? And, of course, for the guys, who is the hottest of them all – Hermione or Ginny? Which one of the four does Anna think is the hottest? Listen to find out.
Also, Abe has two theories about the conclusion of the Harry Potter saga. Now, keep in mind, I have not read a single book from the Harry Potter series. So, I have theories. Listen to the episode to find out what they are, only on BlogTalkRadio.
