So Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, seeing rival John McCain slowly gain on him in New Hampshire (Romney’s back yard), is goin’ all Mike-Huckabee-with-a-shotgun on the Arizona Senator, per the AP via Yahoo news:

Romney fired away at McCain, repeatedly accusing the Arizona senator of failing “Reagan 101” by voting twice against Bush administration tax cuts. Romney also said McCain’s past support for allowing illegal immigrants to stay in the United States and work toward legal status amounted to amnesty.

But here’s the problem with that, from Romney’s 1994 U.S. Senate campaign…

“I was an independent during Reagan-Bush…I’m not trying to return to Reagan-Bush.”

Maybe this is some sort of post-modern, uber-conservatism on Romney’s part, involving conservation of candidates: Now we need only one candidate at a debate, for he can effectively debate himself!
