Back to Romney again, for a question about the auto industry. He's firm on it, but Harwood presses him on whether he's going to stay consistent. Romney: "I'm a man of steadiness and constancy." He uses his marriage, church membership, and his first job as evidence. Sidestepping the question.
Harwood tosses the flip-flop issue to Perry, who says we need to send a message that "America is gonna be America again," and "If you are too big to fail, you are too big." What does that mean?
Maria asks Gingrich about tax reform based on Bernanke's statement that unemployment is a national crisis. Gingrich says Bernanke should be fired asap and that he's glad Bernanke "recognizes the wreckage his policies have caused." He's strong.
Over to Michele Bachmann, who cites historical statistics to say that the rest of the world is attracting capital with lower taxes and we need to get rid of Obamacare and Dodd-Frank. Also, we need to deal with immigration. She stumbles a bit, but she stays with it.
Santorum up, regarding his plan for zero taxes on manufacturers -- "Government has made us uncompetitive." He's purposeful.
