Romney has been on fire all week, he doesn’t seem to be letting up one single bit either. Yesterday at another rally in Bowling Green, Ohio he hammered the Master of Disaster and his socialist policies mincing no words whatsoever…in fact, those in attendance responded passionately. I read a very good reason why this may have set the fire in the first place, this piece speaks volumes about the democrats from Clinton to Stephanie Cutter who works for Obama now…remember she declared Romney was a felon. You can read this here…it’s from the PJ Tatler.
Now…on to today’s report, this is via FN:
Mitt Romney’s campaign kept up the drumbeat of criticism Thursday over President Obama’s “you didn’t build that” gaffe, releasing a scathing web ad in which a New Hampshire business owner says: “President Obama, you’re killing us out here.”
The ad, released Thursday morning, sustains what has been a weeklong theme for the Romney campaign. Echoing the Republican candidate’s recent criticism on the stump, the video hammers the president for suggesting this past Friday that business owners owe their success to government.
The video features Jack Gilchrist, owner of Gilchrist Metal Fabricating Company, and shows him getting ready for work at dawn while Obama’s words play in the background.
“If you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own. … I’m always struck by people who think, well, it must be because I was just so smart,” the president says, as the ad shows Gilchrist saying goodbye to his family and heading off to work. “If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.”
The ad then cuts to an incredulous Gilchrist, who asks: “My father’s hands didn’t build this company? My hands didn’t build this company? My son’s hands aren’t building this company? Did somebody else take out the loan on my father’s house to finance the equipment? Did somebody else make payroll every week or figure out where it’s coming from?
“President Obama, you’re killing us out here. Through hard work and a little bit of luck, we built this business. Why are you demonizing us for it? We are the solution, not the problem.”
The ad closes with quotes from Romney’s campaign speech in Pennsylvania earlier this week in which he criticized the president’s remarks.
The video comes as Obama heads to the swing state of Florida for a string of campaign events. Romney, meanwhile, will be in Boston for closed-door meetings with campaign aides.
Democrats have countered Romney’s latest attacks, accusing the GOP candidate of trying to distract from other controversies — namely his refusal to release more than two years’ worth of tax returns, and questions about when he left private equity firm Bain Capital.
The Obama campaign called Romney’s latest attacks “off the deep-end” and “over the top,” arguing the president’s comments were taken out of context.
The Romney campaign is not letting up, turning its criticism into a multi-platform message. The campaign is now selling shirts on its website that say: “I built my business, Mr. President.”
Now here’s some good news that should put a smile on your face, especially where this poll came from. You might want to click the link to read more about this, it’s from Fire Andrea Mitchell blog. Plus, keep in mind this poll gives the democrats a six and a half advantage…so we know our side of the aisle is further ahead than what this poll states.
I don’t know about you all…but this gal’s feeling pretty positive these day…I’m still saying a ‘Landslide‘ is coming in November as long as Romney keeps the gloves on!
