I think aid is all worthless. It doesn’t do any good to most of the people. You end up taking money from poor people in this country and it goes to rich people in other countries, gets used for weapons of war… the biggest threat to our country is our financial situation, and this is aggravating it.
Ron Paul, answering a question initially posed to Herman Cain: whether he felt we could afford to continue foreign aid to Africa for things like AIDS, malaria, and the like. Worth noting: foreign aid presently makes up about 1% of the U.S. federal budget.

Newt Gingrich endorses sanctions against Iran, as well, and also called for “frankly, sabotaging the only refinery they have.” Relatedly, Wolf Blitzer posed this question to Gingrich by saying “I know you’ve studied this.” Shouldn’t candidates studying such issues be something of a presumption, in an ideal world?

We need to sanction the Iranian Central Bank… that will shut down that economy, and at that point in time they’ll truly have to deal with the United States.

Herman Cain was asked if he’d help Israel if they attack Iran, with the goal of preventing them from acquiring nuclear weapons. He suggested he would first make sure Israel had a sensible plan, and warned that Iran was “very mountainous.” Ron Paul, when questioned, said he would not help Israel in that fight, citing their own nuclear arsenal as a reason no such help would be necessary.

I agree with Ron Paul. We are not fighting a war on terrorism. Terrorism is a tactic. We are fighting a war with radical Islam.
Rick Santorum, milking the surprise of declaring he agreed with Paul, with whom he’s clashed contentiously in past debates. To be fair, though, everything he said subsequently (decrying the Obama administration for wanting to set a withdrawal timetable in Afghanistan, for example) could in no way be called “agreeing with Ron Paul.”

We haven’t done a good job defining our end goal in Afghanistan… we need a force on the ground more akin to ten to fifteen thousand.
Jon Huntsman calling for a more rapid drawdown of forces in Afghanistan, which Mitt Romney called “cut-and-run.” Huntsman hit back, challenging Romney’s deference to “commanders on the ground,” saying “at the end of the day, the President is the Commander-In-Chief.”

Michele Bachmann just criticized Rick Perry’s stance on aid to Pakistan, suggesting the Texas governor’s thirst to cut off the money would increase the chance of nuclear weapons falling into the hands of terrorists, and making their way to the United States.

No Blitz, that’s oversimplifying here… I’m sorry Blitz, i meant Wolf. Since we’re on a blitz debate- I apologize, Wolf.

Herman Cain, referring to moderator Wolf Blitzer as “Blitz.” Blitzer’s response, calling him simply “Cain,” didn’t really work as well. One syllable name, that.
