Romney attacks Gingrich in GOP debate

(CNN) - In a spirited Republican presidential debate, Mitt Romney went after his surging conservative rival Newt Gingrich over his record as U.S. House speaker in the 1990s and accused Gingrich of lobbying after getting out of government.

Gingrich angrily denied the lobbying accusation, accusing Romney of lying about the issue and seeming flustered by the persistent attack.

    Wow, look at Newt's gut. It looks like the button of his suit is about to pop off under the pressure.

    The people in Florida showed CLASS. South Carolina you could learn something from them. As you can see, all southern states do not act like South Carolina.

  7. Caymans Island and Swiss Account come home to rooost! For Mitt.

    Mitt Romney is not half the man of his father Gorge Romney. Mitt must release his tax record date back when his was the "King Of". Romney has been paying a tax rate lower than 15% and using offshore accounts to zero that out.

    Big surpise here. Romney is feeling the heat and he will do and say anything to win. However, he will probably win the nomination. I sure hope he can take it as well as he can dish it out...

    When I heard people saying: "Gingrich is Kuku". I did not believe it. Now I do believe it. This man is on and off. During the debate in S. Carolina he was almost to eat John King alive. Last night in Florida, he looked like water in a frozen box!
