Right-leaning radio host Mark Levin launched a scathing attack on Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney today, labeling the former Massachusetts governor “sleazy” and “poisonous.”
On his Facebook page today, Levin tells Romney, “Conservatives have had enough of your sleazy campaign tactics.”
Levin pointed to a CNN report, which noted that in the wake of Rick Santorum’s three-state sweep yesterday in presidential primaries and caucuses, Romney would be taking a tougher approach with the former Pennsylvania senator, looking to paint him as a Washington insider.
“I think we’ll see differences in approach that will be explored. Rick Santorum … was fairly aggressive in his contrasts, and I think we’ll see differences,” Romney senior adviser Stuart Stevens said Tuesday night. “Look, I just don’t think it’s a time when people are looking to Washington to solve problems with Washington.”
Levin told Romney on Facebook, “Run on your record. Explain your conservative credentials. Tell us how you’ll save this country. If you have a core it is time to reveal it. But stop your poisonous attack dogs and ads. You’re just pissing us off!”
