Michele doesn't like Herman or Mitt. Ron doesn't like Newt or Mitt. Rick and Jon both don't like Mitt. And Mitt doesn't much like Rick.

While the Republican presidential candidates debated Wednesday night outside Detroit, reporters' inboxes filled up with quick-hit responses from their campaigns. Some were positive, but many attacked rival candidates - a snapshot of the campaign's evolving dynamic.

Rick Perry's campaign targeted Mitt Romney, with releases hitting him on taxes, the auto bailout and health care. Romney's campaign responded with releases hitting Perry on the uninsured and fiscal policy.

Jon Huntsman's campaign dinged Romney on trade and health care reform. Ron Paul's campaign hit Romney on Medicare and Newt Gingrich on health care policy and Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac. And Michele Bachmann's campaign hit Romney on health care reform and Herman Cain on taxes.
