Is Rupert Murdoch beginning to feel a little warmer towards Mitt Romney?

The News Corp. chief drew attention for his despairing tweets (and private sniping) about the GOP presidential nominee. Murdoch said that he worried about Romney's ability to attack President Obama enough.

On Thursday, though, he had rare words of praise for the former governor, as well as some more negative comments about Obama.

Rupert Murdoch
At last Romney attacks, looks better. Keep it up! Still needs to address all Hispanics, 80 per cent Multi- cultural. Dole got 20, Bush 45.

Rupert Murdoch
Yesterday Obama went off script, showed real self ie government omnipotent, individuals secondary. Must be big damage.

Murdoch was referring to Romney's repeated hammering of Obama over comments he made about business.

Of course, the mogul is a famously mercurial sort, so it's possible Romney could do something to arouse his ire soon enough.
