Negative war between the two frontrunners begins with Romney tagging Gingrich as a Washington insider.
Newt replies: “The only reason you didn’t become a career politician was you lost to Ted Kennedy in 1994.“
Intense back-and-forth followed by shots on both leaders by Bachmann and Perry and Paul hitting Gingrich.
Both frontrunners hold their own.
Newt and Mitt tangle over the ex-Speaker calling Palestinians “an invented” people.
Gingrich: “I will tell the truth even if it’s at the risk…of causing some confusion with the timid.”
Romney says the President should not speak for Israel: “The last thing Bibi Netanyahu needs is…someone creating extraordinary tumult in his neighborhood.”
