Romney Vs Clinton

By Michael Levenson

"As Mitt Romney contemplates a potential presidential matchup next November against Hillary Clinton, his supporters believe he has a leg up: He already knows how to beat a Democratic insider, a woman with strong political connections, and a tough, well-oiled campaign operation."

I saw Hillary’s latest campaign ad earlier this week and it featured Mitt Romney very prominently. The ad talked about the “Republican Attack Machine” and I thought, if I was MR I would take the ad as a compliment. When another campaign just ignores you, you many be in a little bit of trouble, but when they come at you, you know you’ve been drawing some blood.

Below are a few lines from the article.

AMHERST, N.H. — Mitt Romney said Saturday that a new ad from Hillary Clinton’s campaign targeting him for being part of the so-called “Republican attack machine” ranks as the best part of the campaign so far.

“I’m convinced you are going to have the Democrats always whining about something. When we talk about their lack of experience they’ll be whining. When we talk about the course they would have taken in Iraq and how bad it would have been for our country they’d be whining,” Romney said. “It’s going to be a lot of whining you are going to hear. But, from our side, you are going to see optimism, hope and a pathway for greater prosperity in this country. ”

It’s very ironic that the Hillary War Room is complaining about “attack machines” when that is their stock in trade. It seems that they can dish it out but they can’t take it.

Maybe now they can quit spreading rumors (behind the scenes) that they have some “dirt” on Barack Obama. I admired Obama’s response to the effect, “Let’s see what you’ve got and if you can’t produce it, then shut up.”
