Rudy Finds a Romney Statement He Can Agree With

Rudy Giuliani is running a simple ad of quotes and dramatic music featuring praising quotes on his tax record from … Grover Norquist, Steve Forbes, Pat Toomey, George Will…

… and Mitt Romney?
Heh.
(I also note that Will’s title in the ad is “conservative columnist,” while Steve Forbes’ title is ‘American Tax Fighter.’ Norquist is ‘America’s Leading Tax Fighter.’)
Boy, I’ll bet all four of Romney’s major rivals were looking at Michigan and hoping that the former Massachusetts governor would be knocked out.
UPDATE: Team  Romney quickly points out that that’s only half Mitt’s statement, that he also lamented the deficits Giuliani left behind.
Although if I were Romney, I wouldn’t make a habit out of citing Mike Bloomberg.
