Facing the unthinkable here just seven days ago a second loss in a row to Newt Gingrich Mitt Romneys campaign team hatched a two-part plan to win in Florida: make Newt mad and Mitt meaner.
A team of some of the most fearsome researchers in the business, led by Mr. Romneys campaign manager, Matt Rhoades, spent days dispensing negative information about Mr. Gingrich, much of it finding its way to the influential Drudge Report, which often serves as a guide for conservative talk radio and television assignment editors and to which Mr. Rhoades has close ties.
The effort hit a peak by Thursday, when the site was virtually taken over by headlines assailing Mr. Gingrich, whose advisers said they eventually gave up on trying to persuade the Drudge staff to spare them, acknowledging, in the words of one aide, that very little can be done.

Even the New York Times can see and admit the strategy...Romney using the conservative media to attack Gingrich. I’m surprised they were willing to be honest about it, though.

Romney can go straight to hell.

It mentions that Romney had new advisors, one a Liberty University person who worked for the spiteful Michelle Bachmann, and others from the campaigns of George Bush, Mel Martinez and Charlie Crist.
Hell, I’m beginning to like Ron Paul, even though he makes my stomach turn... of the seven dwarfs, he’s Dopy, Mitt is Slimy and Newt is Doc and Sleepy tied into one.
Romney’s strategy to LIE and LIE about Newt jumped the shark last Thursday.
His only way to win is to LIE. Romney is phony, desperate and is disgusting. He is very similar to Zero in the way he is behaving.
Everything is staged. Even down to the last Debate, where Romney jumped off the stage to a group of people while having the CNN reporter right there. That was STAGED. Bringing in Romney supporters over local citizens for the debate was STAGED and coordinated.
This has to back fire on Romney. It is disgusting that he can’t take No for an answer. Free Republic will always be Anit-Romney and we will suggest Virginians vote for Ron Paul over Romney in the Primary.
ROMNEY and his band of thieves are LIARS.
I am curious about the nature of those "close ties."
There is a special place in Hell reserved for anyone and everyone who supports Mitt Romney.
May the fleas of a thousand camels infest their prayer rugs.
I won’t being “staying home” on election day because other Republicans are going to need my vote. Especially after the Obama commandos were allowed to do the redistricting here in Arizona using the illegals who were counted in the “census” orchestrated by Barry and the ‘RATS. Although those illegals headed for the tall cotton after SB1070 was passed, the redistricting commission pretended that they are still living here and gerrymandered their new districts in such a way as to give the ‘RATS the upper hand. I’ll just have to write in my selection for president. I won’t be “staying home”.
The cost of that rental? Their souls, perhaps?
Now we know that Romney
We told you that in 2007-08
where were you ???
I think what they got was not necessarily money, but the feeling that they were in with the in-crowd. It’s amazing what a little ego-stroking can do.
I love Mark Levin, but it looks like he was wrong about Drudge.
