Mitt Romney's campaign is running a robocall in South Carolina featuring Laura and Rick Santorum endorsing Mitt Romney in 2008. This is Laura's response:
@2:50 Ingraham: At this point, could we possibly come to this understanding that one person is not going to beat Mitt Romney. And I think you could make the argument that if you don't see that then you shouldn't be President of the United States. If you don't see that you alone are not going to beat him at this point, then maybe Mitt Romney is the right guy.
@4:17 Ingraham: Rick Perry should drop out of this race. And I know, Laura, how can you say that, it's Rick Perry. And I like Rick Perry, I thought he was pretty cool in the last debate, except for that little problem with calling Turkey an Islamic terrorist regime. I mean, God bless him but he's not put in the time to kind of know anything about foreign policy and you can't be president if you don't know anything about foreign policy.
@6:03 Laura recreates a Romney robocall featuring Laura and Rick Santorum (text found here: http://www.politico.com/blogs/burns-h...)
@6:50 Ingraham: That's the call. Tricky Mitt. Cute. Situations, are they the same as they were in 2008? No they are not. And, what I think is probably the better way to go, if I'm Mitt Romney, is to actually engage conservatives in a conversation so conservatives actually believe that you are going to be a conservative warrior.
@7:50 Ingraham: We actually have in our hot little hands a new robocall to respond to the Romney robocall.
The robocall is Laura saying that things have changed since 2008. Then a clip of Sarah Palin saying she would vote for Newt Gingrich if she was in South Carolina. The (fake) robocall closes with Laura saying "Sarah Palin saying she would vote for Newt Gingrich in the South Carolina primary should mean something to you."
On the Romney campaign robocall:
@11:11 Ingraham: That seems like the kind of call you do when you are 20 points down, right, I mean when you are kind of desperate. That's the call you place when you are desperate, not when you are Mitt Romney.
@11:40 Ingraham: This seems to be, actually, a call that presupposes that the individuals hearing the call are so dumb, so moronic, troglodytes, who would believe that Santorum is not running for president and is just campaigning for Mitt Romney. Right? It's just weird.
@12:17 Second fake robocall, this one from "Gingorum" which consists of a mash-up of Romney highlighting the fact that he is a moderate.
@13:28 TV ad of Susan Molinari calling Newt Gingrich's leadership style "leadership by chaos."
@13:49 Ingraham: From moderate Susan Molinari from New York. From one moderate to another. I mean I like Susan Molinari, she's fun, but, I mean you are not going to convince conservatives that Mitt Romney is a conservative by putting Susan Molinari out there.
