With just one day to go before the first-in-the-nation New Hampshire primary, Mitt Romney — the former Massachusetts governor and frontrunner for the nomination — described his faith in the free market with words that might come back to haunt him.

The candidate is already facing criticism from his Republican rivals about his record as CEO of Bain Capital LLC, a Boston venture capital group that invested in struggling companies in an effort to turn them around. . .
