Over the weekend, the Obama campaign released an ad that even the denizens of Free Republic had to admit was impressive. It was a simple idea: Romney sings America the Beautiful (tone-deafedly like only a humanoid can) while damning quotes about Romney and how he loves to ship jobs overseas flash across the screen.
If you have been trapped under something heavy for the past few days, here is the ad:
Today, the Romney campaign hit back with an ad of their own, and it’s — well — take a look:
If you didn’t laugh at this ad, there’s probably something broken in your brain, because WTF?! Is this the best they can do? Stealing the Obama campaign’s idea and then royally fucking it up? I can’t even remember what the point of the ad is, and I just watched it. All I’m hearing is President Obama singing the hell out of some Al Green.
Come on, son! What is going on with the Romney campaign?!
Oh, and there’s also the fact that by releasing this ad, Romney has opened himself up to attacks over his refusal to name his donation bundlers (i.e., people who gather donations from a bunch of individual donors). FEC rules do not require candidates to disclose their donation bundlers, but of course President Obama does anyway. Romney, on the other hand, has decided to act shady and disclose exactly jackshit.
