Romney Strikes at Paul in Iowa

Mitt Romney must be pleased: a new CNN poll shows basically a two-man race in Iowa between Romney and Ron Paul, with Newt Gingrich collapsing to fourth place (and Rick Santorum surging to a surprising third). With just five days until the caucuses, Romney has begun training his sites on Paul, attacking him for his foreign-policy views: “One of the people running for president thinks it’s OK for Iran to have a nuclear weapon,” he told a crowd Wednesday. “I don’t.” Paul, meanwhile, isn’t backing down from his provocative foreign-policy positions: “How long do we have to stay in Korea?” he asked a crowd Wednesday. “We were there since I was in high school.”
