"A wise and frugal government which shall restrain men
from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government."

Graceless, Classless, Clueless equals Romney's campaign

You can add Classless and Clueless to Graceless when describing the Romney campaign.  Frankly all these emails look like they could come from Carney, Obama's Press Secretary, as Romney shares the same traits as the Obama campaign for being snarky which is another word you could add to the list.  Imagine attacking a fellow Republican about his speech before he gives it and this is supposed to help Romney.  Cannot believe the tone deaf campaign that Romney is running.

His wife, Anne, just said no more debates for Mitt.  That's nice to know that she is calling the shots.  Romney loved debates until he started becoming the target and now he doesn't like debates because people are catching on he has been lying during the debates.  Imagine that -- Romney lying!  The flip flopper and the truth don't seem to be on the same page.

The Romney campaign of 'scorched earth' against fellow Republicans will eventually come back to haunt him in the weeks ahead.  How do you get supporters of other candidates on your side when they know their candidate was taken out with dirty tricks, opposition research to make them look bad, getting other candidates like Paul and Bachmann to be attack dogs, buying off candidates/office holders with donations for endorsements, paying off debts of candidates who endorse, and using tons of money against them in the campaign.  In Romney lala land guess you are supposed to forget how underhanded his campaign and Super PAC was against your candidate and just jump on board because Obama is so bad.  That's not happening with a lot of supporters of other candidates.

Like a lot of other conservatives I am not convinced that Romney with his underhanded tactics and wanting to silence anyone who dares to cross him would be much better then Obama when you have emails like this going out from his campaign:
2:00 PM, Feb 24, 2012 • By MICHAEL WARREN 
This morning, Rasmussen released a new poll showing Mitt Romney regaining his lead in the Michigan primary. This afternoon, Romney communications director Gail Gitcho sent out the following email to reporters:
All –  
If you are reporting on Senator Santorum’s response to the Rasmussen numbers speech today, in which he will reportedly issue desperate and false attacks against Mitt Romney in an attempt to prop up his campaign, please use this quote from me.  
“Rick Santorum is a Washington insider who is lashing out at Mitt Romney because he had a terrible debate performance. Back in 2008, Sen. Santorum endorsed Mitt Romney for president because of Mitt’s ‘conservative’ record. Now, Rick’s changed his tune. This sounds like another case of Rick Santorum abandoning his principles for his own political advantage.” – Gail Gitcho, Romney Communications Director

Communications Director
A snarky and graceless attack on a speech that Rick Santorum has yet to give? Is this the sign of a confident campaign? Are these kind of emails helping the Romney effort?
