Republican presidential candidates’ attacks against each other can turn circular pretty quickly. And that’s what is happening between former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum.

Santorum released a new video ad, titled “Rombo,” blasting Romney for blasting Santorum. The ad shows a man resembling Romney with a paint gun firing mud at cardboard cutouts of Santorum – and missing of course.

"Mitt Romney's negative attack machine is back — on full throttle,” says the ad’s narrator. “This time Romney's firing his mud at Rick Santorum. Romney and his super PAC have spent a staggering $20 million, mostly attacking federal Republicans."

Why?

"Because Romney's trying to hide from his big government Romneycare and his support for job-killing cap-and-trade,” the narrator states. “And in the end, Mitt Romney's ugly attacks are going to backfire."

Romney offered a nonchalant reaction to the ad on Fox News Wednesday, The Hill reports. "That's the nature of politics, which is you always accuse the other guy of what you've done yourself," he said.


"My campaign hasn't run any negative ads against Rick Santorum. ... I'm not saying we won't finally go after the guy, but frankly, he's been going after me."

Romney said the actor standing in for him looked “pretty good.”
