1/30/12 With a massive financial advantage and with coordinated attacks from across the Republican Party, Mitt Romney has re-established his front-runner status and is poised for a big win in the Florida primary tomorrow. Romney and his Super PAC have outspent the Newt Gingrich forces by nearly $12 million on TV ads in the Sunshine State. Party establishment figures like Bob Dole, neo-conservatives like Elliot Abrams and even whack jobs like Ann Coulter have all launched attacks on Gingrich’s character and temperament. “It not about winning here anymore,” said a Romney staffer. “It’s about destroying Gingrich — and it’s working.” Gingrich vows however that he’ll be in the race until the GOP convention. Good news for President Obama and the Democrats.
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Tuesday compared President Obama’s handshake with Cuban leader Raul Castro to Neville Chamberlain shaking hands with Adolph Hitler.
