A Fresh Smear Against Romney In Iowa; Dan Riehl Guesses At The Culprit

A n attack on Giuliani, supposedly coming from Mitt Romney's campaign.

The last Romney attack involved a push-poll denigrating his religion which then strongly hinted it was at the behest of the McCain campaign. Anyone see a pattern here? They're dishonest two-fers, attacking one candidate while pinning the blame for the smear on another.

I notice several candidates are not implicated either on the direct smear side or indirect blowback side.

I think Dan Riehl is reaching here, but I'm sorry, my guess is that Huckabee's behind it. This one and the last one. I thought it at the time but didn't want to make unfounded accusations. But the guy has a rep for being pretty nasty behind that sweet-souled smile. And while everyone has a reason to attack Romney -- him being ahead until recently -- it's Huckabee who has the most to gain from separating strong social-con evangelicals from Romney.

I also note that several candidates aren't seriously challenging Romney in Iowa. But Huckabee is.

Of course there's also a decent chance that Ron Paul's unhinged minions are behind this, too.
