As Rick Santorum counted up his victories Tuesday night, a senior adviser to Mitt Romney signaled the campaign would take a tougher approach toward his resurgent rival and portray him as a Washington insider.

Thats all the guy has.
Santorum has not been a factor in the race until now, and therefore has not had his many political faults discussed widely. Now he’ll get that pleasure.
“Romney will take tougher approach to Santorum, adviser says “
LOL If that’s the best “dirt” that mittens has to throw against Santorum, he better start crying now.
Bishop Willard Romney and his hissing cockroaches.
Mitt better come up with something better than that.
All S need do, if he chooses to respond, is contrast what he was doing in DC vs what Mitt was doing in MA, during the same time period.
I'd sooner spit in Romney's face than vote for him for dog catcher. FUMR!
Here comes the Romney big money unfounded character smear.
Doesn’t Mormonism have something like “Do not bear false witness against your neighbor”? Or are they like Islam that encourages you to stick it to anyone who’s not of the elect?
And the Romney slime machine with all its presstitute minions swings into action.
RNC be warned, I will say it again - I WILL NEVER VOTE FOR ROMNEY NOR WILL ANYONE IN MY FAMILY! PERIOD!
Are you ready for the romney/paul s%&t storm???
The Romney loving Drudge-Rhoades and GOP-e can both go to Hades.
Yep, it will be a Romney Paul tag team.
You read my mind in the next state over.
Good. Romney is a smear man, and this with Gingrich’s attack will show Romney to be what he really is - an issueless shyster.
Better Santorum than ROMNEY!
This is the only thing Flip can do. He has no positives to run on. He gets some some term gain with this method but his overall appearance and likeability takes a beating in the process. He continues to fall with his numbers across the board continuing to drop even from the unsuccessful 2008 campaign levels.
He’s a slow motion train wreck but no one wants to admit as much. How long until they once again dust off the draft Jeb Bush movement rumors?
The Romney slime machine is warming up fast today in order to try and take down Santorum now that he’s become a clear threat after last night’s massacre.
Personally I don’t care what Romney does. I am not going to be voting for him.
And then after the smears, Romney will say:
I never saw the ads. They were created by a SuperPac that Im not even allowed to talk to:
This act is getting old. Lets put Romney in a cage on top of a limo and ship him back to Massachusetts.
I will call out the slime machine I used on Bachmann, Cain and Gingrich but haven't released on Ron Paul as he serves me well.

Wow,,you could be talking about Obama when you said that.
This line of attack won’t work. We’ve seen all the Washington D.C. insiders and establishment money rallying to Romney not Santorum.
The slime machine he also used on Perry,
Post S. Carolina and pre-Florida, Romney and Gingrich drew the battleships of their respective campaigns broadside and proceeded to launch verbal attack after verbal attack upon one another. It got so ugly that both ships were listing in regard to how voters felt about the two candidates by the end of that states’ primary.
Along comes Rick Santorum on a dinghy, and blows them both completely out of the water with the twin torpedoes of truth and perseverence. For good measure he strafed them with the .50 cal of solid (not great) conservative principles with the courage to stand up for conservatism.
Both of the once fearsome battleships are wounded, not sunk. They will be back in the fight. But only the S.S. Romney has the captain at the helm that will drop a nuke on that little row-boat that could.
I’ve always liked the little guys in life. The ones that no one gave a chance to. The ones the bullies picked on because they could.
Once in high school wood shop, one of these little guys was being physically picked on and humiliated by a couple of large jock types. That day I proved to myself that I won’t fight for the little guys, but I WILL hand them a two-by-four, stand back and enjoy the carnage.
Swing low Rick, swing low.
I've been virulently anti-Romney from the get-go. See my post number 7.
So how come I never win a t-shirt???!!!
When our circular firing squad has finished it’s work, and the latest iteration of flavor of the month is safely under the bus, the writing on the wall will be a bumper sticker that says Ron Paul. Read it and weep.
It comes down to one word. When I tell my linguine spined Romneybot “friends” that I refuse to vote for their guy and they ask what he could possibly be lacking that I have missed, I simply say “Honor”. I would use the word “Integrity” too but most of ‘em don’t know what it means.
Stunned silence. It works well. Try it.
Let the Romney pitbulls loose. They still don’t have a clue why they are tanking.
This is what happens when you allow a Democrat to run in the Republican primary. He does as much damage as possible to the real Republican candidates. It is a win-win for Romney. He’d rather have Obama win re-election than see him lose to any of the conservative Republican candidates. Same goes for Paul.
Romney better tread VERY CAREFULLY. If he tries to DESTROY Rick like he did Newt, all hell will be unleashed on Romney.
I forgot about that. You're right.
So I can't even vote for him for dog catcher.
Is there anything this immoral cretin masquerading as a conservative is qualified for?
I support Ron Paul.
In Virginia anyway.
No one is listening to you anymore MITT, you have wasted your $$$$$ on negatives and it's not working, is it? Thing is YOU CAN'T CHANGE now, you can't play nice now. It's over for you, and your such BORE.
YOUR FINISHED, guess you will be the last to know, just about the time your helpers and the Media suck the last $$$ from you. But hey? You being a GOD and all that crap, put your face in your hat and see what magic trick you have left?
BTW: you need to change your underwear.
The chances for a brokered convention are growing, and that is very favorable to Paul....He shines at caucus type proceedings.
No, the God(s) who appeared to FLDS/LDS "Prophet" Joseph Smith told him that Christianity was an "abomination."
FLDS/LDS "prophet" Brigham Young and others taught that Islam is superior to Christianity.
Bluemoose is a member of the cult. I'll give him an opportunity to refute these claims here in front of everyone before I post the referenced quotes from thier own scriptures and books.
Contrary to popular belief and contrary to my initial conclusion, I don’t believe that Romney will turn up the heat of Santorum.... he won’t need to.
Regardless of yesterdays events, I doubt that Romney sees Santorum as much of a threat.
However, Trump might very well throw a few darts and of course Fox-GOP-e news will do Romney’s dirty work.
It seems to me that in the long run, it’s better for Romney if he continues to hammer against Newt.
We need a graphic from “Christmas Story”
Get ready for the slime! That’s all Romney can do slime & smear just like the Bush family.
Ping me to another political thread and I’ll give you one. One per thread.
But do check out the GOP rule. They are not following their own rules. Should show more than anything they’re in the tank for Romney. Address are provided to send them your two cents.
And if you haven’t already donate to FR and to Newt.
Newt’s working OH. Rick is going to MI and Mitt is heading to TX (Where Perry is setting up an ambush....Remember he endorsed Newt)
Have some HOT tea with that popcorn.
“Doesnt Mormonism have something like Do not bear false witness against your neighbor? Or are they like Islam that encourages you to stick it to anyone whos not of the elect?”
I do not know if the different regard and treatment afforded the ‘gentiles’ extends to a form of taqquiya in the public forum (as opposed to conversion pitches). I have repeatedly asked Mormons if Bishop Romney’s support for abortion in the public theater and his discouragement of it amongst his own represents that double standard. i.e. ‘Gentile’ control while the Mormon numbers grow. A kind of ‘spay your pets’ campaign. So far none have elected answer.
Anyway, I shall ping our ex-Mormon experts.
Unfortunately, Santorum is the last hope for conservatives. Newt is fading and all he can do now is split the conservative vote and give Romney the victory. If Newt had any integrity and cared about others more than himself (but that’s the issue, sin’t it?), he’d bow out now and give Santorum the total conservative vote and bury Romney.
“Is there anything this immoral cretin masquerading as a conservative is qualified for?”
Maybe fly swatter.
Well the MSM including FOX and other so called Conservative journalists covered for Romney when he bombarded Newt with the negative half truth distorted ads and criticized Newt as WHINING when he complained .
Let us see how they react when Santorum gets the same treatment.
Santorum doesn’t have the $$$ to fight back so what is he going to do WHINE like Newt or use what $$ he does have to go after Newt some more
The elitist castrati aka Romulans at Drudge, the RNC, Fox News and National Review are probably all on suicide watch after last night.
Santorum better be prepared for the barrage BS that is about to hit him.
Robama is so shocked. And now he has his next target to destroy.
So he will have Ann Coulter start talking about Santorum?
Santorum? You’re next.
The only one with immunity appears to be Paul.
