Absolutely right Phil and for Rudy and McCain who chased their rivals off the headlines. The latter two are still arguing about that silly website. Yes, silly by any standard of political oppo gamesmanship. Romney tried to take the high ground. Team Fred has sent out a long communication complaining that –gasp–Romney’s team ” is simply doing exactly what they said they would do, and when they get caught, they have a pattern of denying it.” The rest of the missive quotes from that reliable conservative journal Salon and the Boston Globe(which is to Romney what the Daily News is to Rudy) about how tough Romney plays with the opposition. If I am a pol in SC I’m thinking “I like the tough guy.” One GOP consultant’s take: “glass chin.” Seriously, the way to get at Romney is on substance or on flip flops; the dig on him is that he’s not tough enough. This is helping him.
