Huckabee's front-runner treatment?

From NBC's Domenico Montanaro
Huckabee gets a negative question on his record on illegal immigration. But it's 25 minutes in and he is speaking now (and the topic is still illegal immigration).

Romney went back at Huckabee, equating him to Massachusetts liberals. He then turned to him and said, "Mike, that's not your money, that's the tax payers' money."

Huckabee wrote in response, "We're a better country than to punish children for what their parents did." That was an effective line. But Romney hit back and he has shown some backbone in this debate so far.
