Cease Fire Over? Ron Paul Slams Mitt Romney in New Video

Despite talk of an alliance between the candidates, Ron Paul (left) goes after Mitt Romney in a new video clip.

It looks like a rumored non-aggression pact between Ron Paul and Mitt Romney may not be in effect.

The Paul campaign released a new video today slamming the Texas Representative’s opponents in the GOP presidential primary: Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, and yes, Romney. The bombastic clip labels Romney as a “flip-flopper,” arguing the health care reforms Romney oversaw as governor of Massachusetts “provided the blueprint for Obamacare,” i.e., the Affordable Care Act.

Earlier this month, Santorum supporters accused the Romney and Paul campaigns of going easy on each other to burnish each other’s credentials. But with the recent Republican debate in Nevada likely serving as the last debate of the primary season, the gloves may be off between the two campaigns.

You can watch the clip below.
