Katrina, you focus on the question of whether Adelson is Machiavellian, but a bigger question is: Is Mitt Romney?
Just last week, the media was reporting on private meetings between Mitt Romney’s Adelson, allegedly to get him to stop backing Gingrich. Now the Wall Street Journal is reporting that Adelson is going to pump $10 million to a Gingrich super PAC to go after Santorum on Super Tuesday.
Romney’s problem is that he has to go negative on Santorum, or he will lose. But if he’s seen as going negative, it will backfire.
Clever political insulation for the Romney campaign? Inquiring minds want to know, but will the MSM ask?
