(Newser) – Mitt Romney borrowed a phrase from Hillary Clinton today but put his own twist on it, warning of a "vast left-wing conspiracy." The media is a part of it, he explained on Breitbart TV, and their intention is to "do everything they can to divert from the message people care about, which is a growing economy that creates more jobs and rising incomes," he explained. "There will be an effort by the quote vast left-wing conspiracy to work together to put out their message and to attack me," he warned. Clinton trotted out the phrase "vast right-wing conspiracy"in 1998 when explaining who she thought was behind the sexual harassment charges Bill was facing, notes CNN.
