Romney's Desperate Hours

By JOSEPH W. McQUAID

Mitt Romney has thought himself so close, for so long, to finally grabbing a presidential nomination that he is now desperate as his “front-runner” status slips away. Desperate men do desperate things.

Enter John Sununu, former White House chief of staff to George H.W. Bush. As revealed last week, Sununu has been nursing a 20-year-old grudge against Newt Gingrich.

Why? Gingrich refused to go along with Sununu and others who engineered Bush's infamous breaking of his “read my lips, no new taxes” pledge. Breaking that pledge caused Bush to lose the White House to Bill Clinton.
