The boss said on Fox News earlier today that no one is really sure how well Mitt Romney will stand up to attacks. "[Romney] has not been subjected to a lot of negative attacks from his competitors on the Republican side," the boss told host Megyn Kelly. "They've been busy cutting each other up. . . We just don't know, honestly, I think how well Romney will stand up to attacks."

And, similarly, Holly Bailey reports: "Mitt Romney has long been considered the frontrunner for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination, but if he wins Iowa's caucuses on Tuesday, it will be partly because of one extraordinary fact: Not one of his Republican rivals ran a negative TV ad against him in the state."
