Romney Slams Huckabee as 'Lifelong Politician'
DUBUQUE, Iowa -- In an interview here Friday, presidential candidate Mitt Romney sought to paint Mike Huckabee -- his main rival in Iowa -- as a political insider who lacks the sort of private sector experience to be an effective president.
"There is a big difference between us in terms of our life experience," said Romney of Huckabee. "I spent my life in the private sector and then running the Olympics, he spent his life in government. So we have a lifelong politician versus somebody who has been in the business world for most of his career."
As both Romney and Huckabee hone their pitches to crucial social conservative voters here in Iowa, the former Massachusetts governor insisted there is no difference at all between the two mens' positions on social issues.
"We're both pro-life," said Romney. "He's been longer pro-life than I have. If that's a major issue for people then fine."
