This Week's NH #FITN News & Headlines


Eagle Tribune: Candidates shouldn't pander image to audience, "People in New Hampshire expect candidates to be genuine. It could hurt their effort to totally change message or try to be someone they aren't."
Concord Monitor: Perry sticks to his guns in first town hall, "Perry needed little prompting to repeat his earlier characterization of Social Security as a Ponzi scheme, a description that rival Mitt Romney has seized upon. When state Rep. Al Baldasaro, a Londonderry Republican, praised Perry as the 'only candidate that has stood up' and used the comparison, Perry said the government must reform the program so it will be there for younger generations."
Concord Monitor: Romney pushes back, "Both Democrats and Republican rivals are striving to brand Romney as an opportunist whose beliefs are lightly held. But it was a self-described supporter who asked Romney at a town hall meeting at Saint Anselm College how to answer charges that the former Massachusetts governor is a 'flip-flopper.'"
Boston Globe: Democrats, fellow Republicans join to bash Mitt Romney as flip-flopper
