Republican Debate Live

Republican Debate Live, Debating one last time before voting begins, seven Republican presidential candidates made their final arguments for why they are the best prepared to compete against President Barack Obama in 2012.
Newt Gingrich defended his conservative credentials, which have been questioned by his opponents as he has risen in polls during the last month.
“It’s sort of laughable to suggest that somebody who campaigned with Ronald Reagan” and “has had a 30-year record of conservatism is somehow not a conservative,” the former U.S. House speaker said at the gathering in Sioux City, Iowa.
Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney argued that his decades of experience in the private sector would help him debate Obama in a general election, while he sought to use to his advantage an attack Gingrich made against him in recent days.
Gingrich had said Romney, co-founder of the Boston-based private-equity fund Bain Capital LLC, made part of his fortune through moves that destroyed jobs.
“The president is going to level the same attack,” Romney said. “He’s going to go after me and say, you know, in businesses that you’ve invested in, they didn’t all succeed. Some failed, some laid people off. And he’d be absolutely right. But if you look at all the businesses we invested in, over 100 different businesses, they added tens of thousands of jobs.”
