Pender – Hard to believe Barbour, others didn’t already have Romney accesshttp://blogs.clarionledger.com/politics/2012/10/29/haley-trades-silence-for-access/

Interesting POLITICO article, http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1012/82977.html?hp=t1 about the Romney campaign silencing GOP critics in September after a couple of campaign stutters.

But first, I don’t recall Haley Barbour being all that critical of Romney (please feel free to correct me if I’m not remembering something here) at that time. Haley usually follows Reagan’s 11th commandment against speaking ill of fellow Republicans.

Second, I find it hard to believe Barbour (and some of the others mentioned) didn’t already have such insider access to the campaign.
