Romney staffer confessions

They're not even pretending anymore, via Gateway Pundit.

Mitt Romney’s goal in Florida is no longer just winning.

After Newt Gingrich scored a surprise blow-out victory in South Carolina last week, the former Massachusetts governor not only unleashed a political broadside of epic proportions.

“It's not about winning here anymore,” one Romney staffer told BuzzFeed. “It’s about destroying Gingrich — and it’s working.”

Breathes new life into Romney's 'winning at any cost' philosophy, doesn't it? How will that go over, Florida? Or better yet, America? And what happened to that laser-like focus on Obama? Gone. There's no way he'll hound Obama this vehemently, just as there's no way the Republican establishment will ever fight against the Democrat statists with the tenacity that we've witnessed them launch against conservatives and the tea party movement over the past year. They're timid when it comes to the former, yet ferocious when against their own. It never ceases to amaze me as to why the establishment think we would even want the loser to the Party's loser in '08?!  But they do, and they will fight tooth and nail to secure their man.

ADDENDUM: Here's a compilation of truths about Newt from an array of heavyweights, for and against Newt, who dispel Romney's attacks: Levin, Limbaugh, Lord, Palin, York, Krauthammer, Bozell, CNN and Newsmax. Yet, Romney still won't admit his dishonesty in this matter.

And leave it to Democratic strategist Doug Schoen to point out what should be the obvious:

Mr. Romney has been able to rebound from his South Carolina defeat by outspending Newt Gingrich in Florida by 5 to 1 and going on the offensive — attacking the former Speaker on his ethics violations, his investments in Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae and his position as the ultimate Washington insider.

While this strategy will certainly be necessary to secure the nomination, it will be insufficient going forward in the general election campaign.

So there you have it folks, another assessment that Romney won't employ these viciously conniving tactics against Obama. So why your own, man?  Could it be that perhaps conservatives aren't his own?  In the end, it really wouldn't be all that surprising to discover the Romney campaign's fingerprints on some of the other candidates' detrimental occurrences.
