As I've said before, I like both Ron Paul and Mitt Romney, but I don't see the formal alliance between the two that seems to be an accepted fact these days. After last night's debate, Santorum even called them out on it. Or tried to anyway. Hmmm.. that was a really odd comment to make directly after the debate. I would never point out that two of my opponents, who have nothing really in common, have similar attack ads. That simply lends credence to the idea that the ads are correct. Especially when we are talking about Ron Paul who is famous for cutting through the spin and calling things like they are. I've made my case before about why Paul would not be too aggressive against Romney, but I think it is really a stretch to suggest that they are formally colluding against someone. I think the Santorum response makes him look really weak, the same way it made Gingrich look weak after his SC win. Contrast their responses with Romney, who simply says he is expecting the attacks and that he has broad shoulders. These attacks are nothing like what they will see in the general, and if they can't take the heat now, get out of the kitchen.
