1. This is republicanism at its core

Gingrich and Santorum expect him to not run negative ads - even though they have done the same. AND, they would have piled it on to win like he has AND they would do it even worse in a general election. I have seen Santorum campaigning, and it is not touch football.

But, this is what republican's have allowed themselves to become. They want to be treated with absolute kid gloves (but will regardless find reason to be greatly offended) while being bomb throwing fire breathers themselves.

I would also note about BO and Hillary. BO was always very tempered toward Hillary. His campaign for the most part. Hillary went at him pretty good, but nothing over the top. This is politics. End of the day, BOs temperment and personality were such that he was able to bring Hillary into his administration.

Rs - they want whoever they are fighting to have one arm tied behind their backs while they go to work below the belt.
