Al Madrigal goes on location in Florida to make sense of the Tea Party's reactions at their Republican presidential debate. (4:08)

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE).

>> Jon: WELCOME BACK.

OF COURSE, YOU KNOW, IT WAS

REALLY NO SURPRISE THAT THE TEA

PARTY WAS VOCAL LAST NIGHT.

BUT WHAT WAS SURPRISING WAS EVEN

PARTY DARLING RICK PERRY FACED

THEIR OCCASIONAL WRATH,

ESPECIALLY ON IMMIGRATION

ISSUES.

>> IF YOU ARE WORKING AND

PURSUING CITIZENSHIP IN THE

STATE OF TEXAS, YOU PAY IN-STATE

TUITION THERE.

NO MATTER HOW YOU GOT INTO THAT

STATE FROM THE STANDPOINT OF F

YOUR PARENTS BROUGHT YOU THERE

OR WHAT HAVE YOU.

(BOOS)

AND THAT'S WHAT WE'VE DONE IN

THE STATE OF TEXAS AND I'M

PROUD.

>> Jon: BOO!

PUT THEM IN A COMA AND KILL

THEM!

(LAUGHTER)

WE'RE STILL TALKING ABOUT POKER,

RIGHT?

(LAUGHTER)

WITH MORE REACTION TO THIS WITH

TURN TO SENIOR POLITICAL

CORRESPONDENT AL MADRIGAL WHO

WAS AT LAST NIGHT'S DEBATE.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

AL, NICE TO SEE YOU.

WHAT ARE YOUR IMPRESSIONS OF

WHAT HAPPENED LAST NIGHT?

>> I REALLY DON'T KNOW WHAT'S

GOING ON WITH THESE GUYS.

ALL RIGHT, JON, THAT BOOED RICK

PERRY.

I GET THAT THEY'RE NOT INTO

ROMNEY, BUT PER INDUSTRY THE GUY

EXECUTED 234 PEOPLE, GUNNED DOWN

A COYOTE ON HIS MORNING JOG!

(LAUGHTER)

BUT HE MENTIONS MEXICANS AND

COLLEGE IN THE SAME SENTENCE AND

SUDDENLY HE'S TOO SOFT FOR THEM?

(LAUGHTER)

THIS IS A TOUGH CROWD.

>> Jon: BUT, YOU KNOW, MAYBE

IT'S THIS THE TEA PARTY'S IDEALS

ARE LARGER THAN ONE INDIVIDUAL.

>> WHAT IDEALS?

I MEAN...

(LAUGHTER).

THE PARTY THAT STARTED OUT

FEARING DEATH PANELS HAS BECOME

ONE!

(LAUGHTER)

IT DOESN'T MAKE ANY SENSE.

THIS IS FLORIDA.

HALF THE POPULATION IS IN A

COMA.

(LAUGHTER)

I JUST REALLY DON'T THINK THAT

ANY CANDIDATE WILL EVER BE GOOD

ENOUGH.

>> Jon: WELL, SOMEONE WILL

COME ALONG.

THAT'S HOW THESE TYPES OF

POLITICS GO.

ANOTHER RONALD REAGAN WHO CAN...

>> WHOA?

WHAT?

ARE YOU NUTS?

RONALD REAGAN WAS A HOLLYWOOD

COMMIE WHO RAISED TAXES, GREW

GOVERNMENT AND GAVE AMNESTY TO

ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS.

THAT POOR SON OF A BITCH WOULD

GET EATEN ALIVE BY THIS CROWD.

(LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE)

I WILL GO AS FAR AS TO SAY THAT

NO HUMAN BEING LIVING, DEAD, OR

FICTIONAL WOULD EVER SATISFY THE

TEA PARTY.

>> Jon: THAT'S JUST NOT TRUE,

AL.

IT'S NOT A...

>> YOU WANT TO GO?

YOU WANT TO GO, OLD MAN?

ALL RIGHT, BRING IT.

>> Jon: YOU WANT KNOW BRING

IT?

>> BRING IT.

>> Jon: YOU WANT KNOW BRING

IT?

>> BRING IT.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE).

>> Jon: ALL RIGHT, THEY LOVE

THE FOUNDING FATHERS.

THOMAS JEFFERSON.

>> (LAUGHS)

THAT'S YOU BRINGING IT.

THE MAN CUT UP HIS BIBLE, LOVED

THE FRENCH AND HAD A

WELL-DOCUMENTED CASE OF JUNGLE

FEVER.

(LAUGHTER)

TRY AGAIN.

>> Jon: OKAY, FICTIONAL,

RIGHT?

SUPERMAN.

(LAUGHTER)

>> ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT.

(LAUGHTER)

>> Jon: COME ON!

THAT'S RIDICULOUS!

HERE'S SOMEONE WHO COULD LEAD

THE TEA PARTY.

OPTIMUS PRIME!

>> HE ACCEPTED THE AUTO INDUSTRY

BAILOUT!

>> Jon: ALL RIGHT.

THE TERMINATOR.

A MACHINE THAT TOOK AWAY

GOOD-PAYING AMERICAN ASSASSIN

JOBS!

(LAUGHTER)

>> Jon: WOW.

YOU MIGHT BE RIGHT.

I MEAN, EVEN JESUS FED THE POOR

BY REDISTRIBUTING LOAVESES AND

OFFICIALS.

>> WAIT, WHOA, WHOA, WHOA, WHOA.

DID YOU JUST DISJESUS?

(LAUGHTER)

>>

>> Jon: NO, I WAS SAYING FROM

AN IDEOLOGICAL PERSPECTIVE THAT

THEY MIGHT...

>> JON, IF THERE'S ONE THING

THAT I'VE LEARNED FROM THIS

DEBATE-- AND I QUOTE-- "BOO!

BOO!

LET HIM DIE!

LET HIM DIE!"

>> Jon: WE'LL BE
