If I understood correctly, during the GOP debate last night Mitt Romney charged Rick Santorum with having endorsed him--Romney--four years ago.
Was that an attack on Santorum's judgment?
This unexpected tactic opens up a whole new horizon of possibilities for negative campaigning. I can imagine an unscrupulous politician addressing a campaign audience:
Ladies and gentlemen, my esteemed opponent is so foolish and untrustworthy that he supported me in my last campaign!

There are many ways that Romney's Gnostic-style beliefs can come to the fore and reveal the bankruptcy of his worldview. My criticism of his candidacy for the last 5 years has been based on his deficient judgment in failing to fully explore his core belief system.
