As this year's field of Republican presidential candidates heads into Tuesday's New Hampshire primary, plenty of focus is on the leader of the pack -- Mitt Romney. The one-time Massachusetts governor is on familiar territory in the Granite State, and polls show Romney coasting to an easy win.

That's despite increased attacks from the likes of Newt Gingrich and Rick Perry, who have questioned Romney's conservative credentials. Romney has largely weathered such attacks, but recent claims by the multimillionaire that he knows what it's like to worry about losing a job are drawing fire from critics as phony.
