Oxymoronic Super PAC Restore Our Future has restored its umpteen-million-dollar ad campaign, which had previously blowtorched Rick Perry, Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, and any hope of a rational presidential campaign.
From Politico’s Playbook:
EXCLUSIVE – Restore Our Future, pro-Romney super PAC, begins its biggest ad buy ever in terms of dollars (Olympic buy had same number of states, 11): “Another Month,” $10.48 million, running tomorrow through Aug. 21 in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin.
–Female announcer: “Another month. Even MORE Americans jobless. If you had President Obama’s record, what would YOU do? Would you joke? [Obama clip:] ‘Shovel ready was not as, uh, shovel ready as we expected.’ Deny reality? [Obama clip:] ‘We tried our plan, and it worked.’ Even insist? [Obama clip:] ‘The private sector is doing fine.’ Or do what Obama’s allies are doing now — launch ‘shameful,’ ‘dishonest’ attacks? With NO record to run on, it’s the ONLY strategy Obama has left.”
Translation: We’ve gone negative because he’s gone negative.
This isn’t the Seinfeld election.
It’s the M.C. Escher election.
