Romney is pushed again on tax returns, business background at SC debate

Myrtle Beach, South Carolina (CNN) - Mitt Romney's rivals put his corporate record under the microscope in a Republican presidential debate Monday, with most of his GOP opponents looking to dislodge the party's frontrunner from his perch ahead of South Carolina's primary on Saturday.

The issue of poverty also factored prominently into the Martin Luther King Jr. Day match-up where a large studio audience roared in support or disdain over candidates' stated positions.

    FOX?? No thanks - softball questions and Obama-bashing is all that ever happens. We've already heard it ad nauseum.

    Take Perry, Santorum and Gingrich out of the debates and it would be one hell of a time lol. Latest CNN polls seem to show Romney and Paul have the best numbers against Obama. 🙂

    look at Obama's numbers- if he wins -its because the repubs are so bad- not really a win:)

    romney will hold off as long as he can on the tax question. It would show how much money he made and how little he paid in taxes, Won't look good for his campaing.

    I would never trust any of these candidates with a high level foreign policy decision.I cant see the majority feeling safe with any Republican candidate putting their sons and daughters in harms way, it seems like Obama is the only one not promoting war these days. When it comes to the economy it is very clear Republicans have the same agenda as Reagan and Bush which is to feed the rich and screw the majority with their trickle down economics that has failed for forty straight years

    Alex, you are wrong the poll numbers show that they are basically tie and just wait the election is ten months away. You
    guys underestimate the undisputed President. Obama can beat the republicans even if all five of them run against him in
    the general election
