ABC News Rick Klein reports: For those reading 2012 implications out of Sen.-elect Scott Browns victory in Massachusetts, Mitt Romneys monthly PAC newsletter provides some insights.
Brown, R-Mass., is featured in two pictures in the newsletter, and Romney takes full ownership of his victory:
As supporters of the PAC, you deserve a thank you, the newsletter from Romneys Free Strong America PAC reads. Your support made it possible for Governor Romney to get behind Senator Brown from the very beginning, when polls showed him a 30-point underdog and everyone assumed the outcome was pre-ordained in favor of the Democrats.
Governor Romney asked his entire political team to help the then-unknown Brown, and he raised early money for him at a time when very few people would give him a second look.
Indeed, several key figures in Browns victory -- notably Eric Fehrnstrom, Beth Myers, and Peter Flaherty -- were and continue to be Romney people.
Browns campaign manager, Beth Lindstrom, was a member of Romneys Cabinet; his press secretary, Felix Browne, was a deputy press secretary under Gov. Romney; Brown finance director Priscilla Ruzzo held that same post in Romneys 1994 Senate race; and Will Ritter was a key advance staffer for Romney before he worked for Browns campaign.

Now that is ballsy. BS, but ballsy.

Let the great Romney debate begin! LOL!
McCain is taking credit for Scott Brown as well, in radio ads running in Arizona. In fact, if you went by some McCain ads, you would think that he was the founder of the Tea Party movement.
Typical Romney lie.
As painful as it must be for some Freepers to admit, it’s not BS, it’s entirely factual. Scott Brown has said as much. That’s why Scott Brown had Mitt Romney introduce him when he made his victory speech.
Cognitive dissonance always hurts.
ROMNEY DOES NOT HAVE SMARTS. HE’S JUST THE ESTABLISHMENT’S GUY. REMEMBER 2008. HE WAS THE FRONT RUNNER. HAD IT ALL WRAPPED UP ACCORDING THE THE EXPERTS. HAD THE MONEY THE ENDORSEMENTS. HAD THE BUSH MACHINE. BUT THE VOTERS REJECTED HIM. 2012 WILL BE A REPLAY FOR MITT. HE’S A TURD IN A PUNCH BOWL.
If they pass ObamaCare....I wanna see Mitt take credit for that....after all, he is the “father of Universal Health Care” in America.....
“Typical Romney lie.”
Typical political class whoring. There’s a disease in the political class, they are back stabbing whores who see themselves as royalty. I’m not enough of a student of history to know if it’s ever been this bad before, but it’s hard to imagine. Conditions such as we have now were in place in 1775 and lead to a revolution.
I heard that Romney was taking full credit for convincing the Mass. Dems to nominate Martha Coakley....sheer masterstroke of genius!
Is it me or does anyone else see that an impending copyright legal battle between Mitt and ‘Zero’ over the word ‘I’?
Scott Brown wisely refused to campaign in public with Romney.
He took his money, his advisors, and appeared with him on election night, but Romney is radioactive in Massachusetts, as he should be.
Romney is a phony and will not be nominated in 2012.
I like Pawlenty, Scott Brown, and Bob McDonnel from Virginia.
"Former Mitt Romney presidential campaign staffers
have been involved in spreading anti-Palin spin to reporters, seeking to diminish her standing after the election.
'Sarah Palin is a lightweight, she won't be the first, not even the third, person people will think of when it comes to 2012,'
says one former Romney aide
'The only serious candidate ready to challenge to lead the Republican Party is Mitt Romney.
"Some former Romney aides were behind the recent leaks to media, including CNN, that Governor Sarah Palin was a 'diva' and was going off message intentionally."
The Palmetto Scoop reported: "One of the first stories to hit the national airwaves was
the claim of a major internal strife between close McCain aides and the folks handling his running mate Sarah Palin."
"Im told by very good sources that this was indeed the case and that a rift had developed, but it was between Palins people and the staffers brought on from the failed presidential campaign of former Gov. Mitt Romney, not McCain aides."
"The sources said nearly 80 percent of Romneys former staff was absorbed by McCain and these individuals were responsible for what amounts to a premeditated, last-minute sabotage of Palin."
aides loyal to Romney inside the McCain campaign, said The Scoop, reportedly saw
that Palin would be a serious contender for the Republican nomination in 2012 or 2016, which made her a threat to another presidential quest by Romney.
Erick Erickson, who organized Operation Leper, said:
"These staffers are now out trying to finish her off .hoping it would ingratiate themselves with Mitt Romney."
"Who's the Palin Leaker from the McCain Campaign?
National Review Online The publication of a Vanity Fair profile of Sarah Palin
appears to have opened old wounds in the McCain campaign.
... the source of the Diva leak was Nicolle Wallaces husband."
NO MORE PROGRESSIVES!!!
“Is it me or does anyone else see that an impending copyright legal battle between Mitt and Zero over the word I?”
It seems the #1 requirement to be want to be POTUS today is an ego the size of Texas. #2 is a lack of ethics.
No reason to debate the facts.
Romney supported Brown - both financially and with campaign strategy - when Brown was 30 points behind.
Hate doesn’t change the facts.
In the IL primary, all Republicans running are claiming to be the next Scott Brown. Plus the RNC is sending junk mail claiming credit for Scott Brown’s win and demanding money. The whoring is sickening.
