Rivals go after Romney in New Hampshire debate

Rivals go after Romney in New Hampshire debate

Mitt Romney's rivals have attacked the Republican presidential front-runner from the opening moments of a campaign debate, dismissing him as a mere business manager rather than a leader and a man whose investment company actually cost workers jobs.
Mitt Romney retorted that Bain Capital had created 100,000 jobs on balance, and that a businessman's experience was far better to fix the economy that a lifetime spent in Washington D.C.
"I'm very proud of the fact that the two enterprises I led were successful," he said, referring to Bain and another firm.
The barbs flew from the opening moments of the debate, the first of two over the weekend in the run-up to the first-in-the-nation New Hampshire primary on Tuesday.
Romney won the Iowa caucuses earlier in the week by a scant eight votes over former Sen. Rick Santorum and is far ahead in the polls in New Hampshire, making his rivals eager to slow his rise in the race for the nomination.
