The latest anti-McCain television ad from Mitt Romney now “on air” in New Hampshire
David Brody over at the Christian Broadcasting Network asks the question: Is Romney Desperate?
Here is the latest anti-Huckabee ad now “on air” in Iowa.
So, is Mitt worried? Is he desperate?
Romney is trailing in Iowa to Mike Huckabee in most all of the polls and John McCain is making a run at him in New Hampshire.
Will Romney gain by these negative attack ads?
Listen to Brother Brody:
Fair or not, perceived or otherwise, Romney has developed the reputation as someone who will change positions or just say anything to get elected President. When he goes negative against Huckabee and McCain, it plays into the perception that is already formed about him. It makes him look desperate. The mental picture is that Romney’s arms are flailing in every direction looking to hit something. McCain on taxes may work but Romney has some of his own issues with increasing fees in Massachusetts. Hitting Huckabee on immigration may also work but Romney needs to duck for cover on that issue too because of some of his past statements.
The problem here for Romney is that he’s not pure on these issues either so everytime he attacks, he gives his opponents a chance to strike back. John McCcain has been skewering Romney lately by mouth and press release.
Flap thinks Romney may have just sunk himself with his unlimited money paying for negative ads and large media buys, impatience and blatant desperation.
Look at the PUSHBACK by McCain:
But, we will see in a few days, now won’t we?
