Romney Promises More Fighting Words in Campaign

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney promised more fighting words in this campaign-- both against fellow GOP contenders and, if he's the nominee, President Obama-- after getting kudos from some pundits for going after rival Newt Gingrich in Monday's debate.

When asked if his attacks on Gingrich's record were now the model for the Romney campaign, the former Massachusetts governor said: "There's is no question that that's what I'll take to the president. I'm going to battle the president directly, head on, point out how his policies have failed the American people. Of course there are differences between myself and my fellow candidate, I'll point those out as well."

Romney said Gingrich has been "wonderful" at attacking the moderator and the media. "That's always a very favorite response for the home crowd," he said. "But it's very everybody different to have candidates go against candidates, and that's what I'll do against President Obama."

 

Nancy Pelosi, speaking in an interview that aired on Tuesday, said she was sure Gingrich was never going to be president of the United States. "There is something I know," she told CNN's John King.

When the Fox News hosts asked Romney whatPelosi knows, he said: "I wish I knew what that was. I'd tell people what it is right now."
