|Former Speaker Newt Gingrich.|
The issue over Romney's 15% tax rate and his saying $374,327 plus to give 9 speeches was "not very much" income seems to be hurting Romney even within Republican ranks.
Meanwhile the news out of Iowa is that former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum, and not Romney, actually won, the Iowa caucus.
It was all in all a very bad day for Mitt Romney. The only saving grace was the airing of the interview with the second wife of Gingrich's where she suggested he wanted an "open marriage" if the relationship was to continue. I doubt that will have much of an impact, given people tend to discount anything an ex-spouse says. I could be wrong though. After all, I did not foresee this enormous comeback by Gingrich in South Carolina.
