We’ve gotten a pretty good idea that John McCain doesn’t much like Mitt Romney. If you had any thoughts otherwise, look at this statement released this evening by Mark Salter, McCain’s closest aide, in response to Romney’s attacks on McCain’s record:
Welcome to Mitt Romney’s bizarro world, in which everyone is guilty of his sins. He didn’t support Ronald Reagan. He didn’t support President Bush’s tax cuts. He raised taxes in Massachusetts by $700 million. He knows John McCain is gaining on him so he does what any small varmint gun totin,’ civil rights marching, NRA endorsed fantasy candidate would do: he questions someone else’s credibility. New Hampshire is on to you, Mitt. Give it a rest. It’s Christmas.
