Romney slams Gingrich on ‘activist judges’ stance
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney today criticized a proposal by former House Speaker Newt Gingrich to rein in the judiciary. But Romney generally toned down his criticism of Gingrich, after the two traded barbs last week. Speaking to more than 100 people crammed tightly into the Coach Stop Restaurant, Romney never mentioned Gingrich by name. But he did criticize Gingrich’s position that he would force “activist judges” to justify their rulings before Congress and would abolish courts based on their decisions.
