Romney faces tax questions after debate attacks on Gingrich

(CNN) - Mitt Romney attacked surging conservative Newt Gingrich in a Florida debate and prepared to face questions Tuesday about his tax returns being released under pressure in a crucial week for the Republican presidential race.

In the spirited Monday night debate at the University of South Florida in Tampa, Romney questioned the former House speaker over his record in Congress and alleged lobbying after getting out of government.

    Mitt Romney released his tax returns just in time to be made the poster child of the 1% during the State of the Union address. President Obama doesn't even need to mention Romney by name, only by the abstract, "the 1%," as he points out the unfairness in the tax codes. I think the timing of Romney's release showed bad judgement.

    "With little chance of winning, Paul chose not to compete in state where first place gets all the delegates."

    Republican Party rules established in the 2008 convention say that Florida is supposed to forfeit half of its' delegates because it moved its' primary so far up the calender. Let's see if Republicans can follow the rules, this time their own rules. I doubt it.
