DNC ad targets Romney over flip-flops
WASHINGTON (AP) — Democrats are using humor to try to undermine Republican Mitt Romney, pushing a movie trailer-style ad that portrays his candidacy as “the story of two men trapped in one body.”
The new ad released Monday is part of effort by Democrats to call attention to Romney’s inconsistencies on a number of issues important to conservative voters as he seeks to challenge President Barack Obama next year. Democrats are trying to slow the former Massachusetts governor’s progress with six weeks remaining before Republican primary voters begin picking their nominee.
Obama and Romney are waging a nifty pre-general election battle right now, blithely ignoring that pesky GOP presidential primary. Except Romney can’t totally blow off the nomination battle, since he’s consistently been the quarter-horse of the race.
So he’ll likely start competing on both fronts soon.
In other words, let Mitt v. Mitt.
