"oh, yeah, that guy's a real brain surgeon." ] what was it like to have him as a doctor? "your surgery will begin any moment, we just need to get dr. carson in here."

charge in accusing rubio of being too scripted. on the debate stage, rubio had a chance to prove everyone wrong, opposite. >> let's just stop once and for all with this fiction that barack obama doesn't know what he's doing.t he's doing. but i would add this, let's dispel with this fiction that barack obama doesn't know what he's doing. he knows exactly what he's doing. th doesn't know what he's doing is just not -- >> there it is. >> he knows exactly -- >> there it is. the memorized 25-second speech. >> that's the reason why --ybody. >> we are not facing a president that doesn't know what he is doing. he knows what he is doing.

[ laughter ] >> seth: incidentally, "grab em" is also the title of trump's book on dating. [ laughter ] the new hampshire primary is, of course, tomorrow.p, rubio, and cruz, it's a chance to emerge as a frontrunner. for kasich, christie, and bush, it's a last stand. and for ben carson, it is, like all things for ben carson, a waiting game.
