Attacks on Mitt Romney's business record by fellow GOP presidential candidates Newt Gingrich and Rick Perry didn't gain much traction in New Hampshire, as Romney cruised to victory in Tuesday's primary. The criticism certainly seemed out of place in a GOP primary. As a Wall Street Journal editorial noted, "It's hard to be a credible champion of private economic growth and job creation if your main message is an attack on private enterprises." Jennifer Rubin of the Washington Post said the attacks enabled Romney to "lay claim to be the standard-bearer of not just his party but of the conservative movement. He's with the Republicans who don't want to apologize for their faith in the free market."
