McCain Campaign television ad: Consider
Now, will this negative tit for tat ad war influence voters to vote for Giuliani and Huckabee?
Mitt Romney in Iowa responds to the latest McCain attack ad:
Mr. Romney fired back at Mr. McCain this evening while talking to reporters on his campaignâ€™s press bus. He insisted his own ad attacking Mr. McCain was a fair comparison between the two of them on issues, while Mr. McCainâ€™s was quite different.
â€œI begin the ad by indicating heâ€™s an honorable man,â€ Mr. Romney said. â€œI believe he is a good person. I make no attacks on his character, no attacks of a personal nature whatsoever. Iâ€™ve just seen the text of his ad. Itâ€™s obviously of a very differnet nature. Itâ€™s an attack ad. It attacks me personally. Itâ€™s nasty. Itâ€™s mean-spirited. Frankly, it tells you more about Senator McCain than it does about me that heâ€™d run an ad like that.
Later, when a reporter followed up with him, he expanded.
â€œItâ€™s reminicent of what he did against George W. Bush in 2000, which as you recall, he accused President Bush of twisting the truth like Bill Clinton,â€ he said. â€œAgain, this is the kind of nasty, personal attack, which really doesnâ€™t have a place in this process.â€
Yeah, right Mitt.Â You have been caught firing off negative ads against McCain and Huckabee.Â Now, you will have to take it just like you have been dishing it out.
Where is the GOP 11th commandment when you need it?
