We noted yesterday that Sarah Palin and her ilk have been calling on Mitt Romney to “light their hair on fire” with some raw meat for the base. It appears that Mitt Romney has heard the call and is about to let the dogs out. TPM reports.
Unamed aides to Romney told both Buzzfeed and NBC that they plan to step up their game, possibly including attacks on Obama’s biography that have up to this point been solely the domain of right-wing media.
“I mean, this is a guy who admitted to cocaine use, had a sweetheart deal with his house in Chicago, and was associated and worked with Rod Blagojevich to get Valerie Jarrett appointed to the Senate,” one Romney adviser told Buzzfeed. “The bottom line is there’ll be counterattacks.”
