"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."

Kristol: Going After Rick

Romney's Super PAC is probably equal to the disgust I have for Obama's big donors who have formed a Super PAC.  Whoever is running Romney's Super PAC has zero integrity and zero attention to facts as they try to smear Santorum after smearing Gingrich and the other candidates.  The Romney Super PAC is a reflection of Romney himself who is all about a 'scorched earth' policy about anyone who gets in his way.

Glad to see that Kristol has the opinion that Romney thinks the Republican primary voters are dumb as that is the impression a lot of us have.  I told someone if I was a dumb as Romney thinks we are, I wouldn't be able to get dressed.  Romney's contempt for the Republican voters shows when he has to be around us like at Town Halls where he is not comfortable unless it is a paid staffer or fellow Mormon asking the questions.
Going After Rick
10:19 AM, Feb 15, 2012 • By WILLIAM KRISTOL
America is going bankrupt, Iran is going nuclear, the Obama administration is going after religious liberty. And Mitt Romney is going after Rick Santorum. 
Which is fine (sort of). Romney's in a political fight, and politics ain't beanbag, as Romney has tried to say. 
But does his super PAC—following public (and therefore legal) guidance from his own campaign—have to go after Santorum in so juvenile a way? Santorum voted to raise the debt limit! (Along with virtually every other Republican when the GOP controlled the Senate—and does Romney think they shouldn't have raised the debt limit?). Santorum voted to raise his own pay! (As part of an appropriations bill—and does Romney think senators are overpaid?) 
The Romney campaign often gives the impression that it thinks Republican primary voters are really stupid—and it doesn't do a very good job of hiding its contempt. The Obama administration clearly thinks the American people are really stupid—and it doesn't do a very good job of hiding its contempt. It would be nice if the Republican nominee could contrast his respect for the American people with the Obama administration's contempt.
