At the beginning of the second hour of Tuesday night's debate in Hanover, New Hampshire, moderator Charlie Rose prompted each candidate to ask another candidate a question. More than half the candidates used the opportunity to take on Romney.
Herman Cain touted his own 9-9-9 tax plan as "simple, transparent, efficient, fair and neutral" and asked Romney if the former Massachusetts governor could name all 59 parts of his own economic plan and whether that plan was simple, transparent, efficient, fair and neutral.

A calmer, more subdued Michele Bachmann took to the stage Friday night at the Values Voter Summit in Washington. Her voice was noticeably less passionate than in stump speeches past.

In last night's GOP presidential debate Minnesota congresswoman Michele Bachmann lambasted Texas governor Rick Perry for his executive order, which never went into effect, that sixth grade girls should receive a vaccine to prevent HPV, a sexually transmitted disease that causes cervical cancer. Bachmann knocked Perry down a notch, arguing that the episode was an example of crony capitalism (Perry's former chief of staff was the chief lobbyist for the drug company that manufactured the vaccine).

Fifteen minutes into last night’s Republican presidential debate, Michele Bachmann became the first candidate to mention and attack Obamacare. She did so after five other debaters had already spoken, and in response to a question that didn’t explicitly reference the overhaul — thereby immediately establishing repeal as her top priority.
