    Looks like Rupert Murdoch had some Monday regret. The media mogul stepped back from his criticism about Mitt Romney, tweeting on Monday that “of course I want him to win, save us from socialism, etc but should listen to good advise and get stuck in!” On Sunday, Murdoch had tweeted “Met Romney last week. Tough O Chicago pros will be hard to beat unless he drops old friends from team and hires some real pros. Doubtful.” Romney campaign strategist Eric Fehrnstorm responded to the criticism by saying “we’re happy with the team we have.” Jack Welch, another international business tycoon, has since tweeted his two cents: "Hope Mitt Romney is listening to Murdoch advice ont campaign staff..playing in league with Chicago pols..No room for amateurs."
