You’ve asked for it . . . you’ve waited for it . . . you got it.
Mitt Romney’s first TV spot (via the New York Times):
Not surprisingly, the ad is about as credible as Romney himself.
From the Times Caucus blog:
[T]he ad shows [Pres.] Obama saying, “If we keep talking about the economy, we’re going to lose.”
But the line, which is perhaps the spot’s most devastating moment, is also the one that seems to be the most taken out of context. In fact, at the time, Mr. Obama was referring to something that an aide to his then opponent, Senator John McCain of Arizona, had said in reference to the McCain campaign — not Mr. Obama, then or now.
In a 2008 interview with The New York Daily News, an aide to Mr. McCain warned, “If we keep talking about the economic crisis, we’re going to lose,” and Mr. Obama picked up the comment and began using it to mock Mr. McCain on the campaign trail.
Mitt Romney will say anything, do anything to become president of the United States.
That alone disqualifies him for the job.
