That Was Weird

Just a few moments ago, Romney surrogate and former New Hampshire Governor John Sununu made a very odd comment. He suggested that the investor community might punish Newt-backer Sheldon Adelson for funding Newt’s anti-Bain Capital movie, the one they’re going to go to town with in South Carolina.

Adelson is a billionaire casino mogul who has plenty of money himself but in the nature of things is in constant need of finance capital to fund new projects.

I think people invest money with Adelson because they think they’re going to get a good return. So I don’t think he really has a lot to worry about. But it sounded to me like sort of a threat, albeit not a terribly credible one — and an odd one since that’s a key base for Romney.
