This is a fantastic new ad from the Obama campaign:
Brian: "They came up and said you are definitely laid off—everybody as of right now."
Karen: "What was I going to do for my children? Are they going to have a home?"
Miles: "Without President Obama's rescue of the auto industry, Ohio would have collapsed."
George: "Mitt Romney would have just let us go under- just let them go...bankrupt."
Romney: "Yeah, that's...that's exactly what I said, the headline that you read which is, said: "let Detroit go bankrupt."
Karen: "And for him to just say— let them fail."
George: "How can you say something like that? It's just beyond me."
It's just a brutal ad—but the amazing thing is that the guy who delivers its most brutal attack is Mitt Romney, on himself, when he says, "Yeah, that's what I said: Let Detroit go bankrupt." Juxtaposed with the people whose livelihoods he would have so callously thrown down the drain, it's easily one of the most powerful, if not the most powerful, ads of the campaign. And that last question—"How can you say something like that?"—that's not a question that Mitt Romney can answer. All he can do is hope that people don't see the ad.
There's less than 20 days to go: please chip in $5 to help President Obama get ads like this on the air in the closing days of the campaign.
