Surprise. Surprise. Connect the dots......
Carol Platt Liebau is yet another Romney supporter,
in to attack Gov. Palin this month, for backstabber Carpetbagger RINO Mitt Romney.
There are enough attacks against Gov. Palin that this effort is concerted (p < .001)

"Mitt Romney has been the most consistently excellent debater overall in the two meetings of the Republican candidates.
He is personable, clearly well informed, incredibly well-funded, and surrounded by a crack staff.
All that, taken together, goes far to explain why his numbers in Iowa -- and elsewhere -- are looking better and better."

"But the other candidate who's very compelling is Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney."

"Romney supporter turned Obama man Douglas Kmiec indulged in quite a litany of name-calling,
finger pointing and demagoguery against the GOP that would have been amazing from the same man only one year ago.

"Kmiec was named by Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney
to head the Romney for President Committee
on the Courts and the Constitution in 2007."

"Cal’s Surprising Suggestion: ‘I Wish The Palins Would Leave The Stage For Awhile’"

"Romney obviously hopes that a growing number of Americans
accept the view of Cal Thomas, a popular journalist and an evangelical."

"Writing in his syndicated column, Cal Thomas commended Romney
for standing "on principle" and putting "more noble things ahead of self-interest." "

Peeking Out From the McCain Wreckage: Mitt Romney


Vanity: Team Romney Sabotaged Palin and Continuing to Do So?

Romney Supporters Trashing Palin

Romney advisors sniping at Palin?

Similar to Romney's other scortched earth tactics:

Novak: Fred Thompson drop-out rumors traced to Romney campaign

Said Novak: The rumors were "traced in part to Mitt Romney's campaign,
trying to stir up strife between McCain and Thompson

"Despite outspending his rivals by huge margins throughout the primaries,
(Romney) lost Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, Florida and California.
The only primaries he won were in Michigan, where Dad was governor; LDS states;
and a few states on Super Tuesday in which his California-obsessed rivals
couldn't spare the cash to advertise.
Only John Connolly in 1968 had a worse cash-to-delegates ratio.
And John McCain rightly did not like Romney's tactics during the primaries.
(W)hen (Romney's early leads) started slipping away, he resorted to unfair,
distorted, scorched-earth negative ads, betting that his opponents couldn't
afford to spend enough for the truth to catch up to his charges."

Good find...Carol Platt Liebau often sits in as a guest host for Hugh Hewitt, a HUGE Romney supporter.

The dots have been connected...

If the 2012 primary were held today, Palin could beat Romney in Utah and Huckabee in Arkansas.

I also think it is asininely stupid to hold either candidate responsible for what some of their alleged supporters are alleged to be doing.

Now if Romney himself makes a statement trashing Palin as Huckabee has done ('She hasn't paid her dues or earned her way into a primary spot'), then that is fair game.

But from what I've seen, the Romney supporters (mainly economic conservatives) seem to be a far more intelligent crowd than the Huckabee supporters, whom I refuse to trash because we will need both groups to win an election and undo the damage Zer0 will do by 2012.
