After Secret Meeting With Romney Campaign, Breitbart Employees Say He Supports Their Smears

Breitbart editor bragging that Romney supports his ‘surrogates’ attacking Obama over Rev. Wright, is playing ‘good cop, bad cop’

Readers on this site are already aware of the leaked document that showed a super-rich right-winger planning a $10 million “scary black President” smear campaign. Of course, once the plan and the billionaire backer were exposed to the sunlight, they quickly pivoted to say that they never really planned on running the ads.

Romney, after initially hemming and hawing and saying he hadn’t “read the papers yet,” eventually got around to “condemning” the attack strategy, saying, “So in regards to that PAC, I repudiate what they’re thinking about.”

But some in the right-wing blogosphere think that Romney actually is offering “wink wink nudge nudge” support for the smear campaigns, and is simply employing the strategy of “good cop, bad cop” alongside his surrogates. For example, here’s what one breitbart.com editor had to say (chronological from bottom to top):

Now, I’m tempted to dismiss this as another example of breitbart.com editors being completely unaware when everyone is laughing at them. But on the other hand, Breitbart representatives did recently participate in a secret meeting with the Romney campaign about campaign messaging. You’d think that if the Romney campaign wanted ridiculous race-baiting campaigns or birther conspiracy theories off the table, they could have made that clear.

Though it violates my general rule-of-thumb, if breitbart.com editors are claiming that Romney is actually supporting their smear campaigns, I say we should believe them.
