Rush: Hey, Let's Not Go All Kookoobananas Over Skill At Debates Since We'll Have One Or Two At Most

Hey I said that.

Romney and Gingrich had a sharp exchange. Romney suggested that Gingrich ought to give back the money he made lobbying for Freddie Mac; Gingrich responded by suggesting Romney give back the money he'd made at Bain Capital, "bankrupting" companies and "laying people off."

It's a strange comeback for a conservative -- to essentially attack the foundations of capitalism itself. While people say stuff like "Newt doesn't make mistakes," in fact he does, and they're just as worrisome as a "heartless" comment on immigration. There is a conception that Newt thinks very carefully before speaking, and delivers consistent conservative messaging with each pronouncement; in fact he tends to grab for any rhetorical club at hand, and doesn't seem to give a lot of thought as to how the club might fit into conservative philosophy.

Brit Hume had reacted sharply to Newt's counter-attack earlier in the day.
