Romney Source of Thompson Rumor

Fred Thompson was announced by the MSM and bloggers to be quitting the Republican Presidential race even before the Iowa caucuses were over. Thompson was quick to deny the story and dismiss the news agency and blog rumor mongers.

Who was the original rumor monger? Robert Novak writes today that the story "have been traced in part to Mitt Romney's campaign." The intent was to "stir up strife between McCain and Thompson" going in to New Hampshire. Thompson and McCain had a statistical third place tie in Iowa.

Mitt's folks don't always play nice.

But don't they know all these lame attempts can be traced back to them?

Unless it was really Giuliani who only made it LOOK like Romney's people. He's tricky that way.

They probably know it all can be traced back, but the short term gain makes the scam worth the risk. Plus the fact that most Americans have the attention span of a knat. It's a new day with the Internet, though.
