Here Are Mitt Romney’s 15 New Ads You Won’t See In Pennsylvania
Fresh off the Democratic National Convention, Republican candidate Mitt Romney is in all-out ad blitz mode. He released 15 new commercials today that are set to make Jeopardy! viewers in “key swing states” yearn for Nov. 7 when the pain of having to hear the two candidates “approve this message” five times a day will finally be over.
As we noted yesterday, presidential television campaigning has basically ended in Pennsylvania—for now. Before Bill Clinton’s DNC speech on Wednesday, Chuck Todd of NBC News went out of his way to note Pennsylvania is not a “toss-up” state anymore. All commonwealth polls point to an Obama victory. (One hope for Romney, as we’ve also noted, may be new voter-ID law’s suppression.) So, instead, Romney is going after Colorado, Virginia, Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and North Carolina—all of which, like Pennsylvania, went for Obama in 2008.
The ads are all basically the same. They deal with defense cuts (Obama has made it unsafe to live in Iowa), regulations (Obama’s finance regulations make it harder to steal cash from the poor), the deficit (which doesn’t matter, according to former Vice President Dick Cheney) and home values (which have been down, especially in rural and suburban America, for several years.)
So, either be mad ol’ Mittens isn’t spraying you in the face with his own, or be very, very grateful for the same reason. Below are the new ads the Romney campaign released today.
