If Rick Perry were the nominee, I’d be voting for him. I believe every single person on the stage in that last debate would do a better job than president Obama.
Mitt Romney • Claiming, during an interview over the weekend, that he would vote for Rick Perry, the man he savaged during last week’s debate. But would Rick vote for Mitt? SUSPENSE! source (viafollow)

The good news is, the cake is baked. Barack Obama will not be re-elected President.
Michele Bachmann, delivering her final remarks (which she had to interrupt Anderson Cooper to make).

You want somebody who’s actually created jobs, not somebody who’s just watched them be created.
Mitt Romney, trading barbs with Rick Perry over employment. Romney also claimed 40% of Texas’ new jobs during Perry’s tenure went to “illegal immigrants,” which Perry called “a falsehood on its face.”

Are you all willing to condemn Ronald Reagan for trading weapons [to Iran] for hostages? We all know that was done.

Ron Paul, challenging Michele Bachmann’s assertion that America cannot negotiate for hostages with terrorists. Obviously, Iran is a state rather than an assemblage of terrorists, which was the retort his comment drew, but it does highlight the lack of nuance being expressed in this conversation.

Rick Perry just called for defunding the United Nations, to a rather warm reception from the GOP crowd. Ron Paul followed up by declaring his intent to cut all foreign aid.

I would have a policy that we do not negotiate with terrorists. Now, then you need to look at the whole situation and examine the facts.
Herman Cain, answering a question from Anderson Cooper as to whether he would, as he’d earlier intimated, be comfortable authorizing a hostage swap along the lines of what went down between the Israelis and Palestinians today — the hypothetical situation was an American soldier being held hostage, and his holder demanding the release of all Guantanamo detainees. Similar to Cain’s recent contradiction on his remark about an electrified border fence (he said it was a joke, but that he might still want an electric fence), he seems to want it both ways in an awkwardly compressed way. If you say you can’t negotiate with terrorists, isn’t that sort of the end of this question?

The concept that we select people based on the church or the synagogue you go to strikes me as a great departure.
Mitt Romney, addressing the anti-Mormon remarks by Pastor Jeffress, who endorsed Rick Perry. Romney said he’d heard worse insults over his faith, and would’ve rathered Perry call out Jeffress for earlier comments in his endorsement that faith should be at play in the presidential selection process.

Romney dodges question on Occupy Wall Street

Mitt Romney was asked his opinion on Occupy Wall Street, on the heels of some slightly softer rhetoric he recently directed at the “99%.” However, on the heels of Herman Cain’s defiant response (which drew a big cheer from the Las Vegas crowd), perhaps Romney wasn’t feeling so bold; he avoided addressing OWS completely, opting instead to criticize President Obama’s economic policy, also insisting the President “doesn’t even have a jobs plan.”

Yes I do still say that, and here’s why: they might be frustrated with Wall Street and the bankers, but they’re directing their anger the wrong place. Wall Street didn’t impose failed economic policies… they ought to be in front of the White House. So I do stand by that.
Herman Cain, refusing to back down from his criticisms of Occupy Wall Street. He insisted he stands behind his earlier comments that it isn’t a person’s fault if they succeed, but it is if they fail. Ron Paul disagreed, saying that Cain was “blaming the victims” of a bad business cycle, and calling out the Federal Reserve.
