Newt Gingrich took a dig at Mitt Romney and his tax returns in an appearance at the Univision candidate forum in Miami.
When asked about Romney's position on immigration, Gingrich said that deporting all undocumented immigrants is unrealistic.
"You have to live in a world of Swiss bank accounts and Cayman Island accounts and making $20 million for no work, to have some fantasy this far from reality," Gingrich said.
As Alexander Burns noted, it's also a fantasy for anyone to believe the issue of Mitt Romney's tax returns is over and done with. But that's what Romney's team says they believe:
Mitt Romney's campaign is firmly operating as if the former Massachusetts governor's tax returns, which dogged him throughout the South Carolina primary, are now an issue of the past.
Speaking just hours after Romney released his 2010 tax returns and estimates for 2011, spokesman Eric Ferhnstrom was already trying to move on.
"As far as we are concerned, we put it to bed," he said, at a campaign stop in the outskirts of Tampa.
They truly haven't a clue.
8:26 AM PT: Greg Sargent's take: "Romney is half right when he says his critics are putting capitalism on trial. This election is putting his brand of capitalism on trial."

Newt pokes his head up from his world of dinner w celebs at L'Auberge Chez Francois to attack Mitt's world of Swiss bank accounts.
