He blasts Hillary Clinton's email "mess" -- but Romney used personal email as governor, and his staff destroyed hard drives when he left office.

The Hillary Clinton email kerfuffle has revealed that high-tech record-fiddling is a bipartisan phenomenon. It has also showed that for many pols hypocrisy is no reason to forego a political attack. Jeb Bush eagerly slammed HRC for her email shenanigans, despite the fact that he, too, relied upon a private server when he was governor and after leaving office vetted his gubernatorial emails before making them public. Now comes Mitt Romney. In an interview with Katie Couric of Yahoo, the failed Republican presidential candidate blasted Clinton for her (indeed problematic and rules-defying) management of the emails she sent and received as secretary of state. Romney called this "mess" an example of "Clintons behaving badly."

And he poured it on thick: "I mean, it's always something with the Clintons. Which is that they have rules which they describe before they get into something, and then they decide they don't have to follow their own rules. That I think is gonna be a real problem for her." He added: "she chose to say, 'No. I'm not gonna follow those rules and regulations. Not only am I gonna have private email, I'm gonna put the server in my house so that there's no way anyone can find out what was really said.' That is something which is going way beyond the pale."
