Dear Commons Community,
The Huffington Post is reporting that Rupert Murdoch took to Twitter on Sunday to weigh in on the U.S. presidential election and that he has his doubts about Romney’s chances.
“Met Romney last week. Tough O Chicago pros will be hard to beat unless he drops old friends from team and hires some real pros. Doubtful,” he wrote.
He added: “US election is referendum on Obama, all else pretty minor.”
This is just the latest in a series of anti-Romney tweets. Last week, the News Corp CEO wrote that Romney “Seems to play everything safe, make no news except burn off Hispanics.”
Murdoch’s Fox News team must be aghast since all they do his pan President Obama and shill for Romney. Or maybe Murdoch is trying to drum up more interest in Romney’s candidacy.
