John King: Welcome to our 2012 Republican primary debate. On stage are all the candidates who felt like showing up tonight. Let’s skip the boring opening statements and have candidates introduce themselves.
Rick Santorum: I’m a former senator who nonetheless has experience making tough executive governing managerial ruling leadership decisions.
Michele Bachmann: I’m a businesswoman with 5 children and 23 foster children.
Newt Gingrich: Obama sucks.
Mitt Romney: I lost in 2008, but that won’t happen again, because Republicans are the party of “it’s his turn.”
Ron Paul: I am a senator who used to deliver babies and now champions liberty and libertarianism.
Tim Pawlenty: I’m a husband, father, neighbor, and lover. Of America.
Herman Cain: I am not a politician and have no political experience. I know pizza.
King: What would you do to create jobs?
Cain: Uncertainty is stalling this train that is our economy. We need to lower taxes, which is like greasing the caboose, and then decrease interest rates, which is like putting the fuel in the tank of the train that is our economy.
King: Is it possible for the economy to grow at 5% a year?
Pawlenty: Our president is an anemic declinist who thinks we can’t have 5% growth like China or Brazil.
King: What are your views on Dodd-Frank?
Bachmann: I’m looking forward to answering that question. But first… Guess what: I’m running for president!
