7:07 am
president. at one point saying me might offer himself up as a third party can't. meanwhile, romney made it clear, he's moved on from gingrich, campaigning against president obama. >> i'm afraid he's detached from reality. >> reporter: his argument comes just as the governor's own words come under fire. when asking a question about a new poll, saying more voters think that the president knows more about the needs of more americans than romney does, he answered this way. >> i'm in this race because i care about americans. i'm not concerned about the very poor. we have a safety net there. >> reporter: when pressed about how this sounded, this is how he responded. >> we'll hear from the democratic party about the plight of the poor. no question, it's not good being poor. my campaign is focused on middle income america. >> reporter: newt gingrich
7:08 am
pounced. >> i'm running to be the president of all the american people. and i am concerned about all of the american people. >> reporter: even rush limbaugh weighing in on mitt's moments. >> corporations are people, my friend. i like being able to fire people that provide services to me. i'll tell you what, 10,000 bucks? a $10,000 bet? i'm not concern about the very poor. >> everybody knows what he's trying to say but he didn't say it. he makes himself a target. he comes across as the prototypical rich republican. it will make it harder and harder and harder to go after obama. >> reporter: bahhing to the potential show stopper here. donald trump is not saying anything this morning. i reach eed out to the romney camp. they are remaining mum, too. >> let's get to jake tapper in washington. let's start with the news from donald trump. maybe news from donald trump and newt gingrich later today. even if trump gets behind him, makes a difference in nevada,
7:09 am
it's still hard to see a path for newt gingrich for the nomination. >> it depends on your version of reality. i would suggest, yes, that's probably right. this is how it looks from the gingrich campaign. they're hoping for a great february. now it looks as though the stars are aligned for mitt romney to have great february. they're hoping for a great february. if they can make romney have more unforced errors. such as the comments david just highlighted. if they can win some delegates in the caucus. if romney loses any of the kau causes that he won four years ago, if there's a call for romney not to be the carrier, the messenger of the conservative brand, they're hoping super tuesday comes in early march and that gingrich can go on for the nomination.
7:10 am
>> that is a lot of ifs right there. this is playing off as the obama campaign saw all year long. they think romney is coming in with vulnerability. saying his unfavorability has gone up in the last weeks. on the other hand, he's basically tied with the president. >> especially in the key battleground states. they're trying to paint romney as a heartless robber baron, without convictions. someone out of touch with the american people. they hope romney will keep making comments like this. if you look at the polling, obama will have a tough race. now to the investigation being launched this morning in a possible radiation leak at the san onofre nuclear power plant in southern california. nearly 7 million people are in the vicinity. david wright has the latest. >> reporter: the plant's
7:11 am
operators insist that at no point were the public or the workers in danger. the entire leak was contained in that far dome behind me. how're, a spokesman for the nuclear regulatory commission say it's possible that traces of radiation leaked into the atmosphere. workers hoped to get inside the power plant today, to determine what caused the steam tubes of reactor number 3 to leak. 7 million people live in a 50-mile radius. any trouble at san onofre is a cause for concern. >> scary. it's scary. >> reporter: they say what failed was a part that was replaced in december 2010. >> no danger to the public, no danger to our workers. >> reporter: did any radiation leak out? >> if there was any at all, no
7:12 am
equipment picked it up it was that little. >> reporter: after the power plant meltdown in japan, there's been a new focus on safety worldwide. including a new nuclear regulatory report issued this week saying that 96 u.s. reactors are in regions that may be more vulnerable to earthquake that previously thought. >> that steam coming out is mixed with radio active water. there's no way around that. >> reporter: workers at the reactor plan to go inside today to see what went wrong. it will be days before we have an answer. we're going to turn to the mom that disappeared from a denver parking lot, leaving her two toddlers in the car for hours. she showed up at a local hospital 12 miles away saying she doesn't remember a thing. she spoke out to our clayton sandell. >> reporter: this morning, sarah hatfield is out of the hospital but not out of jeopardy.
7:13 am
they work to narrow in on what caused 12 hours of her life to vanish. what is the last thing you remember? >> sitting in the car, waiting to get gas. >> reporter: after that, she says her memory is a black hole. police say she abandoned her car at a gas station, leaving her 2 and 4-year-old sons inside. >> the keys are in there. nobody seemso know where the parents are. >> how long have they been here? >> for over a couple of hours. >> reporter: she's not allowed to see her children without supervision. have you been able to talk to them? >> once. >> reporter: what did they say? >> he said i lost him. it's what he would say. mommy, you lost me. >> reporter: what did you tell him? >> that i love him. and i love him, too. >> reporter: hatfield is baffled about what happened that day.
7:14 am
she believes she walked nonstop for 12 miles, finally snapping back into awareness at midnight when she called her husband. >> she doesn't know how she got there? >> she was crying. she was freaking out. >> reporter: doctors believe she may have had a seizure, a psychotic break, or a rare condition called transient global amnesia. how frustrating is it that they can't narrow it down and give you an answer? >> very. very, because i don't know what happened. there's so many unknowns. >> reporter: the worst part, she says, is the fear it could happen again. for "good morning america," clayton sandell, abc news, denver. >> so bizarre. now an eye-opening plea by a medical journal this morning. could sugar be as bad to the body as alcohol?
7:15 am
they're suggesting like alcohol, sugar should be taxed. >> they're saying not all calories are the same. the ones from sugar are the ones we need to worry about. here's why. they link sugar to the metabolic syndrome. it has abdominal obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, high try glis rides. >> it's about added sugar. >> they say if there wasn't the added sugar, the other sugar we take in wouldn't be a problem. 22 teaspoons of added sugar per day is what the average person has. >> this is what we're adding per day. >> let's start with breakfast. that glass of orange juice, six teaspoons of sugar.
7:16 am
sweetened sugar, as many as five teaspoons. gran noel la, six teaspoons. ketchup on your french fries, one whole teaspoon. >> the sugar association said to label a single food is the one and only problem misinforms, misleads and confuses consumers and adds to the problem. what do on you think? should it be taxed? >> it would cut down on it a little bit but bottom line, get rid of the sodas, sports drinks. only one glass of fruit juice a day. >> thanks, rich. time for the weather and sam champion on this friday eve. >> hey, robin. like to hear that. good morning, doctor. good morning, robin. let's talk about the snow in the middle of the country. watches and advisories out for nine states.
