Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney isn’t too happy with fellow candidate Rick Santorum’s new “Rombo” ad. Indeed, the video spot, released Wednesday, is the worst so far in this campaign, Romney told Fox News Thursday night, The Hill reports.

The ad rips former Massachusetts Gov. Romney for ripping former Pennsylvania Sen. Santorum. It shows a man resembling Romney with a paint-ball gun firing mud at cardboard cutouts of Santorum – and missing of course.

"He was the first person in the campaign to run negative ads, attacking me,” Romney said. “He did that through his campaign in South Carolina, his [super] PAC also ran negative ads against me, and then he's got the most negative ad I've seen, so far — the one attacking me for attacking him.”

Does that sound a bit like sour grapes? “Look, it's not something I'm going to whine about,” Romney said. “I know there are some candidates that want to whine about the fact that you go back and forth and talk about the distinctions between one another."
