 The GOP presidential candidates’ New Year’s resolutions for 2012:

Michele Bachmann: “It’s to work very, very hard and win the Iowa caucus and then win the New Hampshire primary and then win the South Carolina primary and then go on and win the Florida primary. So my resolution is to win primaries next year. And become the nominee.”

Newt Gingrich, playfully to Mrs. Gingrich: “Do YOU have a New Year’s resolution?”

Jon Huntsman: “A little more love and compassion. … I just hope that this country can show greater compassion toward the families who have lost a loved one in the theater of combat.”

Ron Paul: “Make sure that when people come to hear, me, that I deliver a proper message and do a better job each time I do it.”

Rick Perry: “I resolve to pray more often for our young men and women who are in our combat theaters, that they’ll come home soon and safe.”

Mitt Romney: “This coming year, I will endeavor to say ‘thank you’ more often. Appreciation is an underappreciated quality.”

Rick Santorum: “I haven’t thought about that yet, but I suspect you might guess.”
