Der Mittenfuhrer throwing sharp jabs at Der Wafflefuhrer
Romney throwing sharp jabs at McCain
Governor's attacks cover range of issues

By Scott Helman, Globe Staff | December 25, 2006

They are disguised as subtle tweaks, brief asides, or polite oh-by-the-way remarks to the media and to Republican audiences. But the zing of Governor Mitt Romney's attacks on Arizona Senator John McCain is unmistakable.

With the 2008 primary season just around the corner, Romney seems to be stepping up his criticism of McCain on everything from taxes to terrorism. And McCain, for the most part, is ignoring it.

Romney's most recent public jab was oblique but hard to miss, and it came in a speech three weeks ago at the annual Republican Governors Association conference in Miami. In the address, Romney praised President Bush for pushing tax cuts despite opposition from fellow Republicans. McCain was initially one of those Republicans, and it is one reason some conservatives do not trust him.

"Our president . . . bucked the doomsayers in the Democratic Party and even some in our own party who were telling him that he couldn't possibly cut taxes," said Romney, who himself has expressed ambivalence about Bush tax cuts in the past. "But he did exactly that. He cut taxes. And why did he do it? Because he was convinced that . . . Americans could do a better job getting this country going than government could ever do. And boy was he right."

2. Maybe this should be our strategy for 2008, divide and conquer,
get them to fighting among themselves. That's what they did to us.
