He hit him in some vulnerable places. Now Willard, ask Newt to produce his $$/what he did from Fannie and Freddie.

TAMPA, Fla. -- An aggressive Mitt Romney on Monday made it clear that he will seek to make rival Newt Gingrich's record the central issue in the days leading up to Florida's primary, launching a multipronged attack on several past controversies and calling the former House speaker "highly erratic."
"He voted in favor of establishing the Department of Education, and yet he gets in a debate and says we should get rid of the Department of Education and send all the education issues back to the states, He’s ... opposed vehemently to the Massachusetts health care system, and yet just a couple years ago wrote about what a superb system it was.
"He’s gone from pillar to post almost like a pinball machine, from item to item in a way which is highly erratic. It does not suggest a stable, thoughtful course which is normally associated with leadership." Romney also picked up on an argument that Rick Santorum has sought to make -- that there could be a surprise with Gingrich that Republicans can ill afford.
"I think it’s an appropriate that people should know if there’s going to be an October surprise," Romney said. "And in the case of the speaker, he’s got some records which could represent an October surprise.... So let’s, let’s see the records from the ethics investigation; let’s see what they show, let’s see who his clients were."
Go fellas, stick it to each other.

So many discomforting candidates and so little to choose between them.
Does the base go for the moralizing philanderer and
Well, as far as the base is concerned, they all share the most important qualification....skin pigmentation.
