The "insult" of the day for Republican presidential candidates Mitt Romney and Rudy Giuliani seems to be to say the other guy is just like Democratic contender Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Today on MSNBC's Morning Joe, Giuliani had this to say about Romney: "He really is in a big glass house here and he's the one who more clearly had positions, at least at one time -– in fact, he's had every position Hillary has had, he's had every position that everyone has had."
Leaving no shot unanswered, the Romney campaign has again called attention to its claim that Giuliani and Clinton "share liberal values." Romney, the campaign reports, said this about Giuliani during an appearance this morning on Fox News Radio's Brian And The Judge show:
"I think he's found himself having to stand up and explain why it is that we ought to make him the nominee when he's very much like Hillary Clinton. He's pro-choice like Hillary Clinton. He's pro-gay civil union like Hillary Clinton. He's pro-sanctuary cities like she is."
As we noted earlier, after a brief respite for Thanksgiving the campaign turned decidedly testy over the weekend. Looks like that trend is continuing.
