Giuliani Attacks Romney; Romney Attacks McCain
Rudy Giuliani recently launched an ad attacking Mitt Romney in Florida and now Romney's out with one of his own. Yet rather than playing offense against Giuliani, his Sunshine state spot indirectly attacks a mutual Republican rival -- John McCain.
In the spot called "Chairs," Romney begins with the statement "Washington is broken." All citizens, he says, deserve health care insurance, middle class workers should have fewer tax burdens and it's time to solve our "immigration problem."
The punchline: "If you send the same people back to Washington just to sit in different chairs, nothing will happen."
Giuliani's attack ad, however, is not so indirect. The spot flashes a quote from Romney, in which Romney praises Giuliani's position on taxes.
The Giuliani campaign has focused its efforts on winning Florida and his swipe at Romney indicates that it may view Romney as its chief adversary. As The Fix has noted: "For Giuliani to win in Florida (and beyond) he must convince voters that he, and not Romney, is the best choice for voters for whom tax cuts and conservative economic policies are top priorities."
