I'm so sick of all the robo calls here in Florida before the primaries. Romney has big bucks with an unbelievable amount of robo calls and negative attack ads. I will say that Gingrich is primarily running a positive ad on his accomplishments in the past.

Limbaugh, Mike Reagan Blast Romney for Smears on Gingrich
Ronald Reagan’s eldest son Mike Reagan has issued a statement lambasting Mitt Romney and his supporters for claims that Romney’s Republican presidential rival Newt Gingrich was a strong critic of President Reagan.
Mike Reagan says such claims are false.
Even Rush Limbaugh, shocked by the Romney claims, chimed on his Thursday radio broadcast to say, "This is obviously a coordinated attack to take Newt out here in Florida."
Rush slammed the Romney-backed smear campaign against Newt.
“That kind of stuff is why people hate Romney so much," Limbaugh said.
Limbaugh added that Newt has always been a conservative from his early days in national talk radio in the 1980s.
“He was perhaps the premier defender of Ronald Reagan,” Limbaugh said.
On Thursday, Mike Reagan, a respected conservative commentator, responded to the Gingrich critics with this statement to Newsmax:
“I am deeply disturbed that supporters of Mitt Romney are claiming that Newt Gingrich is not a true Reaganite and are even claiming that Newt was a strong critic of my father.
“Recently I endorsed Newt Gingrich for president because I believe that Newt is the only Republican candidate who has both consistently backed the conservative policies that my father championed and the only Republican that will continue to implement his vision.
“It surprises me that Mitt Romney and his supporters would raise this issue — when Mitt by his own admission voted for Jimmy Carter and Walter Mondale who opposed my father, and later supported liberal Democrat Paul Tsongas for president.
“As governor of Massachusetts, Romney’s achievement was the most socialistic healthcare plan in the nation up until that time.
“Say what you want about Newt Gingrich but when he was speaker of the House he surrounded himself with Reagan conservatives and implemented a Ronald Reagan program of low taxes and restrained federal spending.

I wouldn't be surprised if Rush threw his support behind Newt soon. I do know he does like the stuff to go a while, but this much crap coming from Romney, might just fed him up enough

I might be wrong but I don't remember him ever giving support to a single candidate before the Republican convention unless the race was already settled or he was an incumbent.

yeah, he likes the process to play out, thus "Opperation Chaos" last time around.

I'm just saying Romney's shit just might make him change his mind this time

Operation chaos was the dems and was more of a joke than anything, I thought we were discussing Republican candidates before the Republican convention, that is what I was referring to.

Rush came down really hard on Romney's playing so fast and loose with the facts. If he didn't endorse Newt, he's coming awfully darned close.

He also raked Newt over the coals for attacking Mittens venture capital business.
