Unethical. Erratic. Reckless.
TPM passes along a Greg Sargent column. The blockquote above is taken from the second page of a mailer sent out by the Romney campaign in Florida.
It also contains this delightful quote from Jennifer Rubin.
With Gingrich you never have the peace of mind that you've gotten to the bottom of his well of sleaze
The concept of a Gingrichian "well of sleaze" is almost as disturbing as that of a "Santorum surge".
The NYT observes regarding Team Romney:
The new approach reflects what some Republican voters apparently want — a candidate who will engage Mr. Obama in a rhetorical death match. The audience reaction to Mr. Gingrich’s debate performances have proven how effective anger can be.
But Mr. Romney must find a way to project the anger that Republican activists want without turning off voters whom he will need in November — independents, women and suburban Republicans — if he becomes the nominee.
Willard M. Romney is figuring out what I've been saying for weeks: the GOP base wants to nominate Rush Limbaugh or someone of that ilk. They want someone who will scream their rage right in President Obama's face, without respect for him, his office, or the millions who elected him.
The race to the bottom continues in the Republican Party. They have created voters full of fear and hate, and now we all must live with the consequences.
