Mitt Romney's Rivals Pile On The Pejoratives

MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) - Timid, an unreliable conservative, a defender of the status quo.

Rivals of Republican front-runner Mitt Romney can't find too many bad things to say about the former Massachusetts governor as they try to put the brakes on his steamrolling campaign.

Romney has harsh words, too, but for Democratic President Barack Obama. He's calling the president a "crony capitalist" and "a job killer."

Romney is heavily favored to win next week's New Hampshire primary, so much so that he is campaigning for a second day in South Carolina. Voters there aren't to cast primary ballots for two

Romney's top rival, Rick Santorum, is likely to find a welcome audience among South Carolina conservatives and so remains in New Hampshire to try to maintain the momentum he earned from Iowa.
