Mitt's Weak-Sauce Attack Ad

Posted by Paul Constant on Thu, Dec 8, 2011 at 11:14 AM

So Mitt Romney is allegedly preparing for a big fight with Gingrich. Is this video supposed to be the first attack?

Because if so, it doesn't work. Talking about how long Romney has been married is a backhanded slap aimed at Gingrich's lurid history with women, but it's so far backhanded that it doesn't even connect. This is too polite and mannered an ad to do anything at all—it just reminds people that Romney is boring. He hangs around for a long time. The only positive achievement he mentions is saving the Olympic games that one time, which is not enough to make the voting public think he's presidential material. The Romney people should know that they have made a very bad ad, here. It's no wonder Fox News is claiming that the Romney camp is "weeks from imploding."
