“How dumb can your opponents be?” said John Sununu, an outspoken surrogate for Mitt Romney on Fox News Tuesday. Sununu is going after Newt Gingrich and his rich backer, casino owner Sheldon Adelson who is financing the attacks on Romney’s as “corporate raider” at Bain Capital. “For them to be anti-free enterprise, anti-the heart and soul of the republican party is just ridiculous.”
More than ridiculous, Sununu suggests that Adelson will face retaliation for these attacks by losing the financial support of many in the Republican Party:
Does he think that people don’t remember when you attack them and pay for the attacks in a primary, especially when one ever the parties receiving that attack is a party he likes to go to to finance his expansions? There is no common-sense in this process. You feel sorry for people that aren’t that bright.
