In potentially the first inter-staff dust up of the 2012 presidential race, an aide of Sarah Palin is hitting back at Mitt Romneys camp for saying the former Alaska governor is not a serious human being.
Asked about the comments by POLITICO, a longtime Palin aide unloaded on Romneys staff.
It shocks me that anyone would try to do that, the aide said. Youd think wed all be working together toward a common goal that being 2010 and that should be the focus right now. Those who try to claim the mantle of Reagan would be good to follow one of his most sacred tenets.
For Washington consultants to sit around and personally disparage the Governor anonymously to reporters is unfortunate and counterproductive and frankly immature, the aide, who spoke on condition of anonymity, continued.
Further, the Palin aide criticized Romneys staff for launching into attacks focused on the 2012 Republican presidential primary rather than focusing on Novembers midterm election.
Shes not focused on promoting herself or disparaging other Republicans, the aide said. The Republican Party is not worried about 2012. We should be focused on 2010.
What shes trying to do is turn the tide on the Obama-Pelosi-Reid agenda Shes stated publicly that her goal is to turn the tide on Obamas agenda starting in 2010, the aide added. We need to all come together in what should be a great year for us in November.
The Palin adviser also jabbed at Romney for having changed some of his past positions and suggested that Romney does not have full control of his team.
Shes not a finger-in-the-wind kind of leader. She supporting candidates who share her common sense values, the aide said. When you have a team of consultants and strategists that big its hard to control.

Mitt needs to keep his big trap shut! He is definitely not my candidate!
Romney is like a bad rash.
Mitt (in Proxy) and Newt in the past few days have both done and said stupid things...Oh God Help us!!
hahah pass the popcorn. The footbll was teed up like Lucy’s football by Mark Halperin of Time Magazine and we’re going to kick it this time for sure.
The media is already trying to subliminally steer people towards certain potential Presidential candidates by constantly citing certain names in articles associated with the 2012 Presidential election including Palin, Romney, Gingrich, Hucakbee etc... God forbid the people actually choose their own candidates.
Glad to see that Governor Palin and those who support her still remember the year is 2010, not 2012, unlike Mitt and his people.
I think Palin should be able to deal with Romney the way my cat deals with a stuffed catnip mouse.
In soe of the various youtube videos of public debates during his Massachussetts career, he displays a staggering sense of entitlement and personal viciousness. I think he will attempt to undermine ANY nominee in 2012, after he loses the primary.
we’re THIS CLOSE to losing the country and GOP insider wonks are preoccupied with schoolyard fights. Ridiculous!
Somebody on the Rombot staff has misjudged the '12 tea leaves...either that, or Mythster Romney himself has been listening to the non-prophet office in SLC that's been whispering in his ear, "The White Horse prophesy...Mitt, you must save the constitution...Mitt, do you hear me?"
More anonymous aides fighting with other anonymous aides...baloney...magritte
The Romneyites have been out to get Palin ever since McCain preferred her to Mitt. THAT should not have surprised Romney since McCain obviously thought Romney too much of a pr... to be a comfortable fit for the old flyboy.

Unfortunately for my salvation, I detest Romney!
The man lacks the common touch. Watching him campaign, I got the impression that he sleeps in long pajamas buttoned to the neck.
No, Meg’s gone back to her family and is out of it now. My guess is it was Rebecca Mansour.
Hey! How did Mitt’s book tour go? Did countless thousands brave the elements to catch a glimpse? I never heard anything about the tour.
Hey! How did Mitts book tour go? Did countless thousands brave the elements to catch a glimpse? I never heard anything about the tour.Mitt had a book? Who wrote it? Was it about the wonders of government run health care?
