Romney Campaign's Juvenile Stunt

If there’s been a more childish, juvenile stunt pulled by a presidential frontrunner’s campaign than this, I wouldn’t know what it is:
The Romney campaign today will deliver an anniversary cake to Gingrich HQ in SC today marking the 15th yr (to the day) that Gngrich became the first Speaker of the House ever reprimanded for an ethics violation.
From GretaWire:
"I don’t know about you but with all the serious issues confronting our nation and for our next President to address, whether it be President Obama or a Republican, I find this gesture (below) from the Romney campaign to make them look very junior high. If Governor Romney even knows about this (and he may not), he should pull the plug on this prank. It doesn’t make his campaign (and thus him) look presidential. He wants to appear Presidential right now. It is one thing to point out and emphasize differences and experiences, it is another to ridicule."
Mitt knows about this stunt: Romney’s campaign manager tweeted about it today, linking to a page at Romney’s campaign site titled Happy 15th Anniversary, Mr. Speaker.

This isn’t just amateurish. It’s proof that Mitt can’t handle not doing well. When things don’t go his way, like they did in Monday’s debate, Mitt’s “looks presidential” facade disappears. It didn’t take long for Mitt to revert to his spoiled brat ways.

This stunt screams “I don’t look presidential.” How appropriate.
