Rupert Murdoch Still Wants Romney To Win Despite Harsh Criticisms
Inquisitr reported last week when Rupert Murdoch sent out a barrage of tweets aimed at Mitt Romney and his presidential campaign asking when he is going to start looking like a challenger. However, according to recent tweets it seems as though the media mogul is still fully on board with Romney and even continuing to offer up advice, according to the LA Times.
“Met Romney last week,” Murdoch said. “Tough O Chicago pros will be hard to beat unless he drops old friends from team and hires some real pros. Doubtful.”
Many Romney supporters questioned whether or not the conservative associated mogul was implying that he was instead leaning towards a Obama victory by calling out the Republican campaign. However, he laid those concerns to rest, tweeting:
“Romney people upset at me! Of course I want him (Romney) to win, save us from socialism, etc but should listen to good advice and get stuck in!”
This attempt to counsel the Romney campaign wasn’t his first, as last week he tweeted:
“When is Romney going to look like a challenger? Seems to play everything safe, make no news except burn off Hispanics,” adding,
“Easy for Romney to spell out restoration of the American dream and bash incompetent administration. But not a word!”
As appreciative as the Romney campaign is for the advice of Murdoch, Senior campaign adviser Eric Fehrnstrom says that they can’t pay attention to every tweet and that they are very happy with the state of the race right now.
“We like the way things are right now,” he said.
“We’re happy with the state of the race. I can’t respond to every tweet that Mr. Murdoch sends out, but we like the way things are.”
Whether or not Romney’s campaign decides to adhere to the recommendations of Rupert Murdoch remains to be seen, but it doesn’t appear as though he will be laying off the tweets any time soon as he informs his followers, “see you next weekend perhaps.”
Do you think the Romney campaign should listen to Rupert Murdoch and his tweets? Or should he just run his race and not worry about them?
