Conservatives Hail the New Tougher Romney

July 13, 2012
Mitt Romney got the memo. 

The GOP presidential contender Thursday issued a day-long, brass-knuckled rebuttal to the latest development regarding his record at Bain Capital, a message coupled with a high-dollar new TV ad that calls President Obama untrustworthy. Combined, they amount to the most aggressive defense of Romney's tenure at Bain yet. And perhaps they are an implicit acknowledgment that Team Romney had been lackadaisical in striking back against Obama, particularly on the political sore point of Bain. 

For weeks, conservative leaders have publicly pilloried Romney's campaign for, in their eyes, failing to rebut President Obama's criticism that his opponent was an "outsourcer in chief." The criticism fermented into calls -- from Rupert Murdoch and others -- that he should shake up his senior team of advisers, never a likely scenario but one indicative of the growing frustration among conservatives.
