Debate Live Blogging Pt. 4

9:06 PM: This could be fun. Candidates get to question each other.

9:07 PM: Yup. Michele Bachmann kicks it off, asking Rick Perry about his support for Al Gore in 1988.

9:08 PM: Finally. Cain and Romney engage.

9:10 PM: Cain challenges Romney to name the 59 points of his economic plan. Romney: “Simple answers are helpful but often inadequate.” #999throwdown

9:11 PM: Someone forgot to tell Michele Bachmann that Rick Perry isn’t relevant anymore. Everyone else targeting Romney with their questions.

9:12 PM: Right now it’s Mitt Romney and the also-rans. It’s that simple.

9:14 PM: Ron Paul can’t resist going after Cain for serving on the Federal Reserve board.

9:18 PM: Perry joins in the Romney onslaught, but Romney holding his own.

9:19 PM: Romney’s turn. He tosses a nice easy one Michele Bachmann’s way. Well played.

9:20 PM: Cain eclipses Perry in this debate. Strange but true.

9:23 PM: Someone might want to tell Rick Perry that the debate started 83 minutes ago.
