You Stay Classy, Mitt

From CNN Political Ticker:
(CNN) – Mitt Romney is backing away from a statement that seemed to denigrate former GOP presidential candidate Robert Dole, who wrote a letter to Rush Limbaugh yesterday defending the former Massachusetts governor’s main Republican rival, John McCain.

In a FOX interview Tuesday morning, Romney had said the former Kansas senator was “probably the last person I would have wanted to have write a letter for me.”

(emphasis added)

My Comments:
Nice. Romney should've known that a remark like that was only going to play into McCain's hands.

I suppose we should at least be grateful that McCain - so far - hasn't followed the precedent set by Dole in the 1988 GOP New Hampshire Primary by snarling that his opponents should "Stop lying about my record!"

Politically dumb comment, but there is some truth to it considering the Dole campaign and the result. Though thankfully we will never see McCain doing a Viagra commercial.
