Mittens' Missouri backers are less than happy with their candidate after his disastrous showing in the Missouri primary earlier this week. Sen. Roy Blunt didn't mince any words:
Those are some pretty harsh words coming from Romney's own congressional liaison, the point person who reaches out to other congresscritters and senators and encourages them to join in backing Mittens' (now-flailing) campaign for president. Maybe Blunt is sore about the fact that Mittens flip-flopped on the commitment he made after Blunt was named the liaison: "I look forward to working with Roy as I bring my plan for job creation to Missouri and the rest of the country," and then never showed up.
You'd think for a campaign that has so many Missouri connections, what with former Sen. Jim Talent being one of the lead attack dogs, Blunt being the congressional liaison, having received endorsements from Missouri congressmen, and receiving the backing of a large number of Missouri GOP leadership, Romney would've put a little effort into the state. But maybe he thought he had it all sewn up, thinking that he's his party's inevitable nominee, but from the looks of it, his own campaign team is starting to buck.
