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.
TOPICS: New Hampshire; South Carolina; Campaign News; Parties
KEYWORDS: catholic; feminists; homosexualists; newhampshire; novote; romney; santorum; southcarolina; stealthobamafans
He may be right.
Romney and Gingrich can keep having a slap fight as Santorum inches closer.

(Not Romney 2012.)
Quite frankly, Newt has been timid lately. I want to see Nasty Newt.
Romney doesn’t have the balls to call Obama a socialist then Newt needs to take off the gloves and come out fightinhg. Romney isn't half as bad as zero is going to be. This time no free rides or letting zero play the race card.

(Everytime I see that guy's face ot)
Romney camp is attacking Newt not Santorum because they do not believe in the third leg in Conservatism which is Social Issues. They think Santorum’s social Conservative, Working Class, Reagan Democrat message has no chance because they do not believe in the Reagan model. Newt is the only one left opposing Mitts for the Rino-McCain-Dole-HW Bush-Ford-Rockefeller-George Romney wing of the party which is all they believe in anyway.
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.
