GOP Primary Debate Focuses On Obamacare, Economy

June 14, 2011 by  

Seven Republicans recently took part in a primary debate.Seven hopefuls for the Republican nomination for the 2012 Presidential election recently squared off in a debate in New Hampshire and set their sights on attacking the record of President Barack Obama.

According to The Associated Press, much of the debate focused on Obama and his overhaul of the healthcare system and his struggles with the economy.

“When 14 million Americans are out of work, we need a new President to end the Obama Depression,” said former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.

Representative Ron Paul (R-Texas) was specific about what he thought was wrong with the economy, blaming the recession on the Federal Reserve, reports the news source.

Still, much of the criticism during the debate was saved for the President.

Tim Pawlenty, the former Governor of Minnesota, said that Obama was a “declinist” who thinks of the United States “as one of equals around the world,” rather than an exceptional country.

While many ideas and opinions were shared during the second Republican primary debate, perhaps the biggest bit of news to emerge from the debate was the announcement by Representative Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) that she would officially join the race for the White House.

      I think Michelle Bachmann did a wonderful job and I hope she continues to do so. We need her in the White house. Thank you.
