You know what would be nice? If Mitt Romney could be half as mean to Barack Obama in the general election as he has been to Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum in the GOP Primaries...

You have to get plum mad dog mean...
Update (are you up for this Mitt?):

  1. Not going to happen. He already said he wasn't going to say "outrageous" things about Obama. What the hell is there to say but outrageous things about him that just happen to be true.

  2. The first thing I would like to say is that Mitt Romney is a former bishop and stake president in the church of Jesus Christ of latter-day Saints. The expectation of raucous comportment most probably will not materialize. On the other hand, the Supreme Court ruling allowing political action committees, their free-speech rights, gives Mr. Romney the ability to project a squeaky clean image while at the same time, having his confidants and allies do his underhanded dirty work of lies and accusations along with character assassination, so as to not appear to dirty his hands in matters so unscrupulous!
    Let it be known that this message comes from a devout Mormon, who does not appreciate the apparent "say one thing, but do another."Dishonesty and deception.
    Mr. Romney is really just an old fashion Keynesian wearing a conservative T-shirt, which these days gets to be called a Republican moderate! As in Shakespeare's "Macbeth", "beware of when the trees come to Dunnsne".

    1. Well said.

      Mitt is not my first choice at GOP nominee, but Rick and Newt are far from perfect either.

      I expect Republicans to have read (in the words of Paulie on the Sopranos) "Prince Matchabelli" and Sun Tsu (and perhaps some Clausewitz). But you can be above the fray and let your PAC do the dirty work, without being disingenuous about it. This is going to be a tough fight and Alexrod and the Democrats will pull every dirty trick to win. Mitt has to be up for that. And no apologies for doing so.

    2. You sound like a bit of a hypocrite, in that your intention seems to be a character assassination of Romney. And as proof you supplied nothing but your wild immaginations.

    3. Anonymous: Well then Tina Korbe and Hot Air, Jeff Goldstein and Protein Wisdom, and I are hypocrites too. Read the links. I am not trying to attack Romney's character--I am pointing out he is being naive if he thinks he can win against the Obama-Axelrod machine with statements like this. Gasoline prices spiking are due to Barack Obama's policies. We are dealing with ruthless people on the other side who lie. And our candidate better be tough enough to fight back. It is not a lie to say Barack Obama is causing gasoline prices to spike, it is objective fact based on his very bad policies.

      And I would not hesitate to do the exactly the same thing if Rick Santorum or Newt Gingrich said something like this. And trust me, I have pointed out plenty of mistakes they have made (read some of my posts on Gingrich and Santorum and you will see that).
