Via The Hill:
Restore Our Future, a super PAC backing Mitt Romneys presidential campaign, will run full-page ads attacking Newt Gingrich in the Manchester Union Leader and The State in Columbia, South Carolina, the most prominent newspapers in the next two states to vote .
The decision to attack Gingrich is a curious one as Rick Santorum has emerged as Romneys top rival for the GOP nomination after he virtually tied Romney in Iowas caucuses on Jan. 3. Post-voting analysis shows much of Gingrichs support in that state ended up going to Santorum.
Maybe I will be proven wrong about Santorums staying power, but I dont think so.
Team Romney and its sycophants in the conservative establishment media have known, at least since October after the Perry crash, there is only one candidate who could defeat Romney in the primaries.
They didnt dump everything including the kitchen sink on Newts head not for nothing.
Romney and Gingrich can keep having a slap fight as Santorum inches closer.
Quite frankly, Newt has been timid lately. I want to see Nasty Newt.
Okay with me if they keep thinking that. Better for Rick S. if he is ignored and Romney/Gingrich $$$ spent elsewhere.
I’m not sure ... I’m thinking Romney knows he’s got a thousand times more money to spend for the rest of the Primaries and thinks the Dark Horse will founder before the final stretch, so he is attacking the person who may have the money to produce the advertisements which will be detrimental.
I’ll wait and see ... tonight’s debate could be very revealing.
