As each of the 10 GOP presidential candidates tried again to find ways to stand out from the pack in Tuesday night’s debate in New Hampshire and reaffirmed their values bona fides, they were newly willing to criticize the Bush administration for its handling of the Iraq war, Hurricane Katrina and especially illegal immigration. "I think we were underprepared and underplanned for what came after we knocked down Saddam Hussein," Mitt Romney said on the first issue. Even Tommy Thompson (in photo), a former member of President Bush’s Cabinet, was pretty harsh. The Ronald Reagan name-dropping continued. This time, though, the elephant in the room was Fred Thompson, who launched a campaign Web site Tuesday and appeared after the debate on Fox News channel.
