Romney cries foul for attacking his strength

In an interview with NBC, Romney said “[O]ur campaign would be-- helped immensely if we had an agreement between both campaigns that we were only going to talk about issues and that attacks based upon-- business or family or taxes or things of that nature.”   NBC rightly asks "Is Romney really saying that scrutinizing his business record -- which he has held up as one of his chief qualifications to be president -- is personal?"

Romney can't run on his record as governor.  He can't run on political skill or rhetorical brilliance.  His business record is all he's got, so it's legitimate for all sides to discuss.
