    This is great:

    The effort to derail Mitt Romney’s presidential quest heightened dramatically on Friday when a super PAC associated with Newt Gingrich outbid all comers for the rights to a scathing 30-minute attack video depicting Romney as a greedy, job-killing corporate raider “more ruthless than Wall Street.”


    According to four sources familiar with the project, the film was commissioned by Barry Bennett, a conservative activist who was once chief of staff for Ohio Republican Congresswoman Jean Schmidt. Bennett is now at the Alliance for America’s Future, a Virginia-based group whose principals include Mary Cheney, daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney. (Bennett declined a request for comment).

    So this film was made by conservatives, designed to bring down a fellow conservative. The primaries are an interesting process. First we get to watch fellow party members destroy and cannibalize each other for about a year, then we get to watch them all feign support while they rally behind the primary winner in an effort to show the public how "unified" they are as a party. Both parties do it. It's no wonder the public deems the whole political process and it's participants hypocritical. We have the two-party system and the electoral college to thank for that.

    I'm still waiting for the usual suspects to come on here and tell me that this is the guy we need to run because he'll connect with all those independents so well.

    Super PAC's can lie all day long and the media just keeps on taking in the money.

    Do they ever present hard evidence to back their BS? No Way Jose"

    At the rate things are going the republican party is going to be so beaten up that we won't be able to beat Obama. The fact of the matter is Romney very well could win as a large percentage of our party appears to be moderate in nature. Lets not destroy what we may have to use in the future, but instead vote for who you think would be best.
