Romney took aim at McCain on Tuesday night, putting his opponent on the hot seat for failures in Washington, his criticisms of President Bush and his move directly from the military into Congress.

I'm not very much familier with the US politices, but I see his means Romney's from the point of grammar view. Am I right?

Thanks

I think the reference is actually to McCain. I also think that the sentence was poorly worded [another case of trying to do too much in one sentence, hence the problem in interpretation].
