GOP Debate Off To A Polite Start

The race for the GOP presidential nomination is off to a very polite start. Last night in New Hampshire, seven Republican hopefuls, including newly declared candidate Michele Bachmann, avoided taking shots at each other.  Instead, they focused on the man they all want to beat in 20-12.

"President Obama is a one-term president," Representative Michele Bachmann said.

"The Obama administration is anti-jobs, anti-business, anti-American energy destructive force," New Gingrich said.

The contenders blasted everything from the President's healthcare overhaul... "This is another example of him breaking his promise," Tim Pawlenty said, to his handling of the economy.

"This President has failed, and he's failed at a time when the American people counted on him to create jobs and get the economy growing," Mitt Romney said.

With his own job on the line, President Obama is traveling to battleground states trying to convince voters he is getting the economy back on track.

"I will not be satisfied until everyone who wants a good job that offers some security has a good job that offers security," the President said.

In North Carolina Monday, he rolled out two new job creation plans. Then, at a fundraiser in Miami, he asked for a chance to do more.

"Big changes don't happen overnight," President Obama said.

This morning, the President heads to Puerto Rico to try to drum up more support. Residents on the island can't vote in the presidential election, but the nearly 5 million Puerto Ricans living in the 50 states can.
