Pro-Gingrich PAC calls Romney "dangerous"

NBC's Alex Moe reports that the pro-Gingrich Super PAC, Strong America Now, is out with a remarkably incendiary mailer that ends with this:

"Romney is the SECOND MOST DANGEROUS man in America and will perpetuate Obama's slide into financial crisis."

So what makes Mitt more dangerous than everyone except Barack Obama? Romney's alleged failure to address the federal deficit.

"Newt Gingrich,” that same piece of literature reads, “Has the proven experience eliminating the deficit and making America prosperous."

All of this is ironic, considering Newt's call last week for Romney to rein in pro-Romney Super PACs for their attacks on Gingrich.

"I think he wants to run a campaign where he pretends to be positive while all of the dirty work is done by his former staffers. I don’t think the people of Iowa are that dumb."

The "dirty work" to which he was referring was this ad from the pro-Romney Super PAC, Restore our Future.
