Media mogul Rupert Murdoch on Sunday took a shot at GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s campaign team on Twitter.
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.— Rupert Murdoch(@rupertmurdoch) July 1, 2012
It’s not the first time that Murdoch has needled the presidential contenders. Last weekend, in two tweets, he pushed Romney to clarify his stance on immigration.
Easy for Romney to spell out restoration of the American dream and bash incompetent administration. But not a word!— Rupert Murdoch(@rupertmurdoch) June 24, 2012
When is Romney going to look like a challenger?Seems to play everything safe, make no news except burn off Hispanics.— Rupert Murdoch(@rupertmurdoch) June 24, 2012
And in January, Murdoch hit Obama and Google for their positions on anti-piracy legislation, accusing Obama of having “thrown in his lot with Silicon Valley paymasters who threaten all software creators with piracy.”
During the Republican primary season, Murdoch signaled his support for former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, describing him as the only contender with a “genuine big vision” for the country.
Can't resist this tweet, but all Iowans think about Rick Santorum.Only candidate with genuine big vision for country.— Rupert Murdoch(@rupertmurdoch) January 3, 2012
