Last night's Republican debate, hosted by ABC, was notable for a number of things, as the candidates prepare themselves to move into the New Hampshire primary. 

Senator Marco Rubio was pinpointed by a number of candidates on stage after he had a better showing than expected in Iowa, perhaps a sign that he was becoming a bit more of a threat to those who hoped to get the nomination.

In particular Governor Chris Christie targeted him, saying that he had "not been involved in a consequential decision where you had to be held accountable. You simply haven't". 

However, the debate made waves on social media as a result of the fact that the introductions did not go to plan. While Gov. Christie was introduced without a hitch, Dr. Ben Carson missed his cue and stood awkwardly in the wings, before he ended up getting confused and crossing paths with Senator Ted Cruz. 

Donald Trump also missed his name being called, which left both him and Carson waiting for their turn to walk out and wave to the crowd.
