    “Zany” is looking pretty good right now

    “Zany” is looking pretty good right now

    The Romney campaign and its supporters have been pursuing a strategy of crazy ever since Newt surpassed Romney in the polls.  The strategy is to use words like reckless, unreliable, and so on as frequently as possible when it comes to Newt.

    It has been relentless, and Romney now has come as close as anyone affiliated with the campaign has come to calling Newt crazy:

    Mitt Romney is sharpening his warning to Republicans about the consequences of nominating Newt Gingrich as the party’s presidential candidate, declaring in an interview on Wednesday: “Zany is not what we need in a president.”

    You made such a big deal about the conversion of Paul Ryan as how this some how justified something your boy Newt said or thought about Social Security and then make the false statement that Romney called Newt zany.
    Watch the video and show me where Mitt ever called Newt zany.
    The reporter brought up the word and Mitt explained that we do not need zany in the presidency.
    Whether that applies to Newt or Rand Paul or Barack Obama is one thing , but Mitt never called Newt zany.
