Question:  Who can beat Obama?


Santorum: Polls right now have no relevance where over 50% of Americans can't even name one of us.  No one has beat a Democratic incumbent but me.  Romney ran to the left of Kennedy.  I ran as a conservative.

Romney:  Career politician won't appeal to Americans.  My distinguishing feature is working in the private sector.


Perry: Romney was 47th in the nation for job creation while governor.  I will draw a bright contrast with Obama.


Romney: Perry chaired Al Gore's campaign. [Chuckles]


Perry:  Texas is leading in job creation.


Romney: My unemployment was lower than yours [Perry].


Cain:  Romney's experience is Wall Street orientated, my experience is main street orientated.


Bachmann:  The cake is baked.


Gingrich: Bickering does not beat Obama. I will do 7  three hour Steven-Douglas debates with Obama.
