Debate Videos: Candidates Finally go after Rick Perry

Last night's debate was the first indication that Republican candidates had any real interest in seeing the bloom come off the Rick Perry rose. In this first video, both Santorum and Bachmann go after the Texas governor for his signing of the Texas DREAM Act, which grants in-state tuition for illegal aliens. Santorum hits Perry first but Bachmann delivers the money line when she says that people who break our laws should not be eligible for government benefits. Perry's defense was quite pathetic and may have done him more harm than if he'd have deferred. He implied that those who disagreed with him were racist when he said he wasn't going to hold back benefits because of someone's last name.

Via CNN:

Bachmann wasn't done. Neither was Santorum. Both also went after Perry over the Gardasil controversy. Bachmann got the better of it when she went for the jugular by rightly pointing out that not only did Perry sign the Executive Order that mandated 12-year old girls be vaccinated for a sexually transmitted disease but in doing so, he helped his former chief of staff who was a lobbyist for Merck, the company responsible for the drug.

Then, after the debate, Palin piled on, saying that the crony capitalism displayed by Perry in the case of Gardasil is exactly the thing she stood up against when she was governor of Alaska. If pressed for time, the good part comes at about the 6:45 mark.
