Mitt Romney's Team Continues to Attack Gingrich on Moon Idea

While Rick Santorum swept contests in Colorado, Minnesota and Missouri on Tuesday, Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney focused his fire on another GOP contender -- Newt Gingrich -- on Wednesday.

The Romney camp has been pounding Gingrichs call for a colony on the moon. Gingrich returned to the idea in Ohio on Tuesday. In Dayton, Gingrich said, This is the difference between the Republican establishment, which is the cheap version of the Democratic establishment. I mean, why did my two Republican competitors instinctively decide we couldnt go into space? Because theyre cheap.

This comment led to more fire from the Romney camp.

Speaker Gingrich just doesnt seem to get it, said Amanda Henneberg. Our staggering national debt and recurring deficits are jeopardizing Americas fiscal future -- yet he attacks critics of his moon-base proposal for being cheap and stingy. Combined with his record as the granddaddy of earmarks and his past criticism of fiscal conservatives, its not surprising that his campaign hasnt left the launch pad.
