Round 4: Bachmann asked if she’ll be submissive to her husband

The jaw-dropping moment of the debate came in the fourth round, which opened with a series of questions about faith, specifically statements the candidates have made about various faiths and their own faith.

Byron York of The Washington Examiner asked Michele Bachmann: “As president, would you be submissive to your husband?”

The crowd booed.

Bachmann waited a bit, smiling, then said: “Thank you for that question, Byron…What submission means to us, it means respect. I respect my husband…and he respects me as his wife. That’s how we operate our marriage.”

The segment ended with a series of questions about the economy.  One final round left.
