As a hachetman, romney only knows how to attack.

Washougal, Washington

......Newt Gingrinch is beginning to look more like John McCain all the time...go Michelle and Mitt and Ron!...You're red hot!...this country needs to be shaken up, so that change can happen.


Romney's record speaks for itself. He has made a living as a hatched man.. He only has his best interest in mind....

Clearfield, UT

Our government could use a good hatchet man... all sorts of programs need to be chopped back.

Considering Romney is in bed with so many special interest groups, I am very surprised in his attacks here! Is he so silly that he believes people will take his attack seriously?

Corporations did not cause our huge deficit or high unemployment. Government trade agreements and regulations have.

We currently have an adulterer running for president. We also have a president, who for some reason, gave up his law license and has hidden his past.

We need more smarts and common sense for our next election.

False, look it up instead of passing on bad information, you must have received the same email I did from others to lazy to even go to snopes.

Happy Valley Hectic,

Obama's legal license status is "voluntarily retired". In other words he gave it up.

Pot meet kettle. Hillarious how Mitt, is courting insider George Bush while calling another equal insider and insider. You should look at Mitt's foreign policy consultants...its a verified who's who of George Bush rehash.

The press is making a big deal about Romney making an unprovoked attach against Newt. Yesterday I read an article saying that Newt told his staff than would not return the vicious attack by Romney but would remain respectful.

GUESS WHAT? On November 28th, an article by Jeff Zeleny, reported that Newt had taken the gloves off and attacked Romney...and this was the first blow, folks. He said that he was a lot more conservative than Mitt and then added the following:

"I wouldn't lie to the American people, I wouldn't switch my position". He also claimed to be far more conservative than Romney. All you have to do is look carefully into Newt's record to know this is far from true. And as far as being dishonest? If he lied to two wives, and if he was dishonest enough to be bagged on an ethics violation and thrown out as speaker of the house, you know this man has an honesty problem. And, he switches positions constantly.

Happy Valley Heretic,

My sentiments exactly. Now turn that around. I did the research on every charge against Romney and learned that the twists or out right lies have been swallowed whole by most gullible Americans determined not to like Romney. Do your homework without accepting the stories of either side. There are facts for those who put in the effort.

I like newts politics but I would think it hypocritical for republicans to vote for him when we condemned clinton for his adultery. President Hinckley called it pathetic for the majority of the country to overlook clintons affair and the same goes for newt.

Gingrich is the ULTIMATE Insider. Ethics scandal, money from big business, 2 spouses cheated on. Why is the Republican electorate allowing this guy to surge in the polls? Republicans prefer this cheater over Romney says a lot about Romney.

Newt is part of the problem, not the solution.

Bear Lake, ID

Every politican has a history that changes positions or evolves with the times. Newt has more than most with equally bad personal history baggage and evidently is getting a pass. Mitt gets vilified and he has absolutely no personal moral baggage. Seems like a double standard. Is it more than just political positions or would Mitt's enemies do anything to stop a Mormon from being elected?

Read bewtween the lines about the search for the anti-Romney and the secret Iowa meetings of church and other leaders with one goal to coalesce behind one conservative other than Mitt. Anti-Romney and anti-Mormon could be interchangeable in this situation.

Why is it acceptable for so many good Americans to be bigots towards Mormons. It may be veiled, but that is what it is when polls show this to be true.

Mitt is a good man and would do wonders better than the current president. He is the only one in polls thatis close to beating Obama. Newt or any other Republican candidate would do better than President Obama.

The news story article said that Romney "attacks" Gingrich, yet is it really "attacking" if one merely points out something that is true?

We all know that an "attack" is when you criticize the person themself and do it by saying hurtful, angry things such as "You're stupid" or "You're an idiot" or "You aren't worth anything". We all know THOSE type of statements are "attacks", indeed, I bet every one of us reading these DesNews articles have been on the receiving end of some of those kind of statements.

And yet Romney simply points out how Newt Gingrich has been in politics for decades and that is labeled by the mainstream media as an "attack". It saddens me deeply that the media SAYS they want politics to be 'clean' and yet at every opportunity they can they frame something in a negative light.

From what I've seen, the mainstream media tends to do this even moreso if it can make a conservative person look bad.

In looking back at November 2010 and looking forward to November 2012 I say: Finish The Job!

Wake up people!!!!! You know Mitt is the best candidate! He is no doubt the best with solving economy! He has the knowledge and experience! In the words of Gov Chris Christie, "wake up! He's the one who can beat Obama"!!!! Why do you think deems are already putting ads out against him!! Like duh..... They are scared of him!

Beverly Hills, CA

There is something seriously wrong with the GOP when Newt is climbing back into this. For tide of you when say you agree with hisolitics, be aware of what you agree with.

Infidelity, twice...that we know of.
Ethics question.
Individual mandate health care pusher
Made millions after office from companies he helped as speaker.

You all seriously agree with this? Oh,btw, his personal life is part of his politics. When you run on a platform of family values, claiming you have the right to legislate other people's morality but are with your mistress while your wife is battling cancer disqualifies you for any office.
