Mitt Romney won the Florida primary by spending five times the amount of money that his competitors were able to scrap together. His ads portrayed Newt Gingrich as a man lacking moral standards, a man who was condemned by the House of Representatives and hammered away at Newt’s financial connections. In a recent interview Mitt emphasized that if you think he conducts a dirty campaign, just wait until Barack Obama gets going.
“No question that Barack Obama billion dollar machine will organize the most vitriolic, spiteful campaign in American history.” An aide added, “they are going to spend and smear their way to the White House.”
I guess Barack Obama has a great teacher named Mitt Romney when it comes to conducting campaigns filled with a vitriolic and spiteful tone. Just ask Newt Gingrich if you disagree with the previous sentence.
