Romney Pummels Gingrich

Oops, Newt Gingrich should have done his homework. At the last debate before next week's crucial primary vote in Florida, where Gingrich and Mitt Romney are running neck and neck, Gingrich called Romney "anti-immigrant." "That's inexcusable," Romney shot back. "I'm not anti-immigrant. My father was born in Mexico ... The idea that I'm anti-immigrant is repulsive. Don't use a term like that." The other candidates also piled on the ridicule when they mocked Gingrich for pandering to Cape Canaveral voters by promising a permanent colony on the moon. It was Romney's most aggressive debate so far, which could put his campaign back on track.
