Kevin Madden, Romney spokesman answered a few questions about Thompson’s remarks today and the push poll controversy. What was his reaction to the comments concerning Terry Schiavo? “I’ve read the transcript and I still can’t figure it out. His response was somewhat meandering. ” What is the Romney reaction to Thompson’s remarks concerning management experience not being essential to the presidency? “Unfortunately for Fred Thompson, hitting a gavel in a committee hearing room isn’t the type of management experience people are looking for in a president. ” And what about his comments regarding Romney “whining” about the NRLC endorsement? “Governor Romney is working hard at town halls and meeting as many voters as possible in order to earn the support of Republican activists. Hard work and bold ideas are what motivates supporters, and Governor Romney has plenty of both. Fred Thompson should do more with the endorsement than just ruminate over why others didn’t receive it. As a campaign, we respect those pro-life advocates who have offered their support for other candidates, just as we are thankful for the support of those who are working with Governor Romney. Ultimately, we look forward to working together with all of those involved in the pro-life movement throughout this campaign.” Finally, if a campaign is tied to the push polls what should they do( e.g. fire people, cooperate in a criminal prosecution)? “I’d expect any campaign that was involved with the calls would likely have to take quick action against those responsible. The criminal prosecution part is a question for the New Hampshire AG’s office.”
