What makes Mitt Romney think Republican primary voters in Florida and elsewhere will be attracted to him by airing out Bob Dole’s bitter fruit against Newt Gingrich?
Dole basically blames Gingrich for losing the 1996 election to Bill Clinton and now it’s payback time:
The Democrats are spending millions of dollars running negative ads against Romney as they are hoping that Gingrich will be the nominee which could result in a landslide victory for Obama and a crushing defeat for Republicans from the courthouse to the White House.
Well, if anybody knows about being on the wrong end of a landslide it’s Bob Dole.
The crux of the matter is that none of this tells Republicans voters why they should put their trust in Mitt Romney. This was the thrust of my argument in my feature article earlier this week.
