Obama campaign targets Romney’s record as governor

June 2, 2012

President Obama’s reelection campaign on Friday released another video bashing Mitt Romney for his record in job creation as governor of Massachusetts.

The video mash-up pulls together footage of his former rivals for the Republican nomination — Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, and Rick Perry, as well as John McCain in 2008 — each of whom is shown criticizing Romney for Massachussetts’ rate of job creation and tax increases during his term as governor.



It follows a longer video, released on Thursday, that mines archival footage for video of Romney, during his 2002 run for governor, promising to use his experience in the private sector to improve the economy in Massachusetts, then contrasts it with a series of former and current state officials who say he didn’t follow through on his promises.

Obama’s New Black Panther’s targeted voters at a polling station.

Romney’s RINO GOP thugs targeted law-abiding citizens at the GOP Convention in Louisiana today.

Obama’s New Black Panther’s menaced…

Romney’s RINO GOP thugs broke the hip of an old man and broke the fingers of another man.

Romney’s thugs are no different than Obama’s thugs.

America gets what it votes for.

Come November, you can either vote to stop another thug from being seated in the White House,

Or you can vote for more voter intimidation and evil.

It appears that the Obama attacks on Mitt’s character and previous experience are failing. Perhaps he should fall back on his record as president and all of the experience that he has gotten in the past 3.5 years.

Too bad Obama does not have a positive record he can run on. Obama’s performance has been infinitely worse.
