VIDEO: Romney ad “Shame On You” hits Obama with Hillary criticisms

I like it!

Politico has the transcript:

NARRATOR: Barack Obama’s attacks against Mitt Romney: they’re just not true. The Washington Post says, ‘On just about every level, this ad is misleading, unfair and untrue.’ But that’s Barack Obama. He also attacked Hillary Clinton with vicious lies.

CLINTON (file footage): He continues to spend millions of dollars perpetuating falsehoods.

NARRATOR: Mitt Romney has a plan to get America working. Barack Obama? Worst job record since the Depression.

CLINTON (file footage): So shame on you, Barack Obama.

ROMNEY (voice-over): I’m Mitt Romney and I approved this message.

Hah. That’s got to cut deep, considering the nastiness of the 2008 Democrat primary campaign season between H. Clinton and Obama. Kinda reminds me of the ad Senator McCain ran against Obama featuring criticisms then-candidate for President then-Senator Joe Biden made about the then-junior Senator from Illinois:


You know what I think would make a great ad, that would follow along the themes of using the criticisms made of Obama by his Democrat opponents in 2007/8? Playing their sound bites, and then asking the question “what’s changed? Nothing” while displaying facts on the screen. Of course, Romney would run the risk of Democrats using the same tactics on him via ads but it’s something they’re already doing anyway via public statements and interviews – they’re just not mentioning the names of the candidates who criticized him (not to my knowledge, anyway). The essence of the Romney ads against Obama could be that he used the Presidency for on the job training, and four years later we are all experiencing the disastrous results.

Anyway, I really dug the ad and hope the Romney campaign is committed to continuing to hammer the President and his party. May it continue until the day of the election, unlike John McCain’s ads, which ran flat after mid-August of that election year.

  1. This guppy pond existence of the commiecrats is reminiscent of Shakespeare’s “Julius Caesar”. Do not think there will be a fairy tale “happily ever after” ending. Some of the residual animosity is evidenced by Bill Clinton’s (a.k.a. “The Unabanger”) going off-point praising Romney’s business record.

    Excellent ad. I’m sure there’s lots of material to be gleamed from Democrats from before Obama secured the nomination in ’08.

    And I want to see an ad about the economy, using that prized Obama quote – “Pass this bill and unemployment won’t go above 8%.”

    I don’t think that you need to worry about Mitt Romney backing down after mid-August. He has proven that he is as tenacious as a pit bull.

    When one swims with sharks, one has to realize one is swimming with sharks.

    In 2007/8 Obhammud was swimming with sharks, and happened to get the prize. Now he is fighting for the prize again, but doesn’t have a clue that the same sharks he injured four years ago are still there swimming.

    Drew is very correct. In the guppy pond Dear Leader is in, he is fair game for the cannibals he is swimming with. They care not about the country, only who can get the most power. Thugs only respect power, not character, the same as sharks.
