Conservative contenders go after Romney

(CNN) - Six days and two debates before the South Carolina primary, conservative GOP presidential hopefuls attacked front-runner Mitt Romney on Sunday to try to head off what two influential Republicans said could be a decisive third straight victory for the former Massachusetts governor.

In appearances on morning talk shows, candidates Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum and Rick Perry all contrasted their conservative credentials with Romney's more moderate record in hopes that South Carolina voters will agree with their contention that Romney can't defeat President Barack Obama in November.

    If Romeny wins "The Three Egos" have only themselves to blame. Their unwillingness to get behind one so-called
    "conservative" candidate splits the vote. Too bad for them, I think they are all losers anyway, Romney included.
