The two fierce rivals for the 2008 Republican presidential nomination do not disagree on everything.
DEARBORN, Michigan (CNN) – Turning their attention away from their fight over taxes and spending, GOP presidential candidates Rudy Giuliani and Mitt Romney found a common enemy at Tuesday’s debate: Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton.
Giuliani, who makes Clinton a frequent target on the campaign trail, accused Clinton of trying to “put a lid on our growth."
Poking fun at Clinton’s proposal for a $5,000 bond for newborns, he said it would come “with her picture on it.”
Giuliani said, “I challenged her. She has backed off that. She has a new one today. This one is, she's going to give out $1,000 to everybody to set up a 401(k).The problem is, this one costs $5 billion more than the last one.” (CNNPolitics.com: Romney, Giuliani spar during Thompson's debate debut)
Making it clear he expects Clinton to be the Democratic nominee, Romney said, “I can't wait to talk about the fact that I spent my life in the economy. I understand how jobs come and why they go. I know how to get a health care plan not just talked about, but actually implemented. I know how to make sure that we keep our taxes down and our spending down. I know how to help American companies do business around the world and stop those foreign companies from coming in here unfairly. I can't wait to debate with her, because I've done it. She's just talked about it."
