    Why should Gingrich not have a chance to fire back? Romney and his supporters didn't hold back. I am sure that there were other opponents were going after Gingrich because he was the leader in the polls. Romney is that currently. Everyone has some bagage and we're find out Romney's.

    Hey Mittens with your job creation record in full view both as governor of a state and Bain CEO, you have got nothing on President Obama. OK.

    You brought this on yourself Mitt. If you live in a glass house you dare not throw stones. And my question to you sir is why are you not running on your record as governor of Massachusetts? Governors do become presidents but CEOs do not.

    Santorum? Really Giuliani? You know there's this other candidate who's been polling much stronger than Santorum...God forbid you say his name.

    They may have been horrible but the question should be were they true?

    I'm glad to see that Rudy Giuliani has.expressed his sympathy for Newt Gingrich. Romney showed his true colors by the way his staff castigated Gingrich so Romney could win in Iowa. Romney is NOT the kind of man we need in the Oval Office. He is so screwed up he has no idea who he is or what he believes. He is trying to avenge his father's defeat in 1968 but it is not a good reason for running. He should withdraw now and go home. But he won't.

    Newt is being honest. The rich Corporations and their paid talking heads are scrambling to put a stop to a truth they don't want the public to know...Vulture Capitalism....Busted!

    Where do all these "officials" get the idea they can tell candidates what they can and cannot say?? Have we lost the right of FREE SPEECH?? Don't care for Perry but I stand with him in refusing to be told what he can say.

    Rudy Giuliani should be aware that candidates do not control the content of their advertising since the advent of Super-PACS. The entire election process is bought and sold by the biggest money... our democracy is going down the drain.

    Want to curtail negative campaigning? Eliminate the Super PACs. Wealthy people just use them to promote their political agenda.....you can be certain that they're not out to level the playing field.

    President Newt Gingrich. Bring our nation to a balanced budget and prosperity like you did when you were Speaker of the House. You did it once before.

    It will be interesting to see if Mitt has the same response (Romney has said he would not ask for the ads to stop, citing federal law forbidding coordination between campaigns and the separate super PACs.) when the Democratic Super PAC's start to swiftboat him in the general election, assuming he makes it through the primaries without alienating the entire 99%. .

    What is so horrible about the truth? I guess it must be something that Republicans fear or want to hide.

    Watch the debates between Kennedy & Romney on Youtube. Watch Mitt flip-flop like sardines out of the water.

    I guess the attacks on Kerry in 2008 were perfectly acceptable though

    I find the assault that started on Obamas first day that continues to this day much worse then a few days or weeks of commercials. The entire feild of Republicans along with Fox news has had a full out attack loaded with lies and treason since the day McConnell called for action and the attack plan did not care that it affected the economy and innocent people on a daily basis. Republicans are wimps for crying about this little stint in the primaries, and not one of them could handle what Obama has had deal with the past four years,all while repairing the Bush assault on the economy and killing people like Bin Laden.Republicans should go cry a river somewhere else.

    This was all created by the republicans. They pushed to mach corporations a person now they have to live with the results. They wanted to be able to throw money against the left but it is hitting them right in the kisser.

    "horrible" ads attacking a horrible man, what's the problem?

    "A one-time presidential candidate chastised Mitt Romney Thursday for a barrage of anti-Newt Gingrich attack ads aired in Iowa on his behalf."

    Of course. Fellow philanderers do have to stick together don't they.

    I always think of Giuliani as being horrible.

    I'd call it more "the horrible truth". Just go to factcheck. Who listens to Guilliani anyway? He is too tainted himself, for me to consider anything he says.
