Romney boards ‘Earn It’ bus, fumes past Gingrich

NEWPORT, N.H. — Mitt Romney, back atop the GOP field in the latest Rasmussen Reports poll in Iowa, kicked off his “Earn It” bus tour here on Wednesday with another jab at Republican rival Newt Gingrich, who has been sharply criticizing the former Massachusetts governor’s “negative” campaigning.

“This is politics. If you can’t stand the heat in this little kitchen, wait until the Obama hell’s kitchen turns up the heat,” Mr. Romney said – first during an appearance on Fox News and then during a campaign stop in Keene.

Mr. Gingrich fired back, saying he can handle the heat and would be “happy” to “test this kitchen.”

“Go back and ask Gov. Romney, would he like to come and play in the kitchen? I don’t think so. I don’t think he wants to do anything except hide over here and pretend it’s not his fault that he is flooding the people of Iowa with falsehoods,” Mr. Gingrich said, referring to ads being run by the Restore Our Future PAC, which is allowed to accept unlimited contributions and is run by former Romney aides.

The bus tour and spat between the top GOP contenders come just two weeks before the Iowa caucuses kick off the nomination contest on Jan. 3. They also coincide with polls that suggest that the anti-Gingrich ads – also coming out of the Rep. Ron Paul and Gov. Rick Perry camps – are taking a toll on the Georgia Republican’s White House bid.

    Neither candidate has an agenda that has total appeal to the working class voters. both candidates need to recognize that the entitlements we need to cut are tax loopholes and foreign aid without the requirement of free trade. We need a balanced budget amendment so voters know Washington isn’t squandering taxes. We need a plan that lists where the cabinet and their subordinate agencies can be condensed or eliminated.

    This isn’t rocket science – you just have to do what is right for working class citizens, as a whole.
