Thursday, September 22, we have another Republican presidential debate live on TV, this time from Orlando, Florida. The Fox News Channel and Google will be hosting the 2-hour event, starting at 9pm EDT. We here at will be covering the 2012 GOP debate with a live blog, as well as with live streaming video if available. Once again, the field of eight candidates will take the stage remains unchanged from the last couple of debates. Rick Perry and Mitt Romney will square off as the front runners, with Newt Gingrich, Ron Paul, Michele Bachmann, Herman Cain, Jon Huntsman and for some strange reason, Rick Santorum. One would think that a sitting member of Congress, like Thaddeus McCotter, would have more standing than a washed-up loser like Santorum, especially since both score 1% or less in the polls. Florida will be holding a straw poll this weekend as part of a CPAC convention.

Of course, the real story will be reaction from the GOP candidates to the latest dribble from Barack Obama on his jobs plan and his deficit reduction – tax increase plan. Obama is facing more and more criticism from his own party as well. An early supporter of his 2008 election campaign wrote an article in the Chicago Tribune on Monday asking Obama to withdraw from the 2012 race. Leaders of the Congressional Black Caucus admitted that if anybody other than Obama were president, they would be marching on the White House in protest of the high unemployment rates and terrible economic conditions African-Americans are experiencing.
