Bachmann Coins Phrase 'Newt Romney'

Thanks Michele Bachmann for giving us the image of “Newt Romney.” The Republican presidential hopeful attacked the two frontrunners as “Newt Romney” in Saturday night’s debate, while Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich attacked each other’s records as “career politicians.” “The only reason you didn’t become a career politician is because you lost to Teddy Kennedy in 1994,” Gingrich swiped at Romney. Romney said “losing to Teddy Kennedy in 1994 was the best thing that I could have done” since it gave him the chance to go to the private sector. Romney pushed back against Bachmann’s comment that the two candidates by saying he is “outside Washington, outside K street.”
