They think you’re stupid, and considering he stands a good chance to be re-elected, there are plenty of stupid people he hopes to bamboozle with this nonsense.
President Barack Obama’s campaign accused Republican Mitt Romney of siding with “Big Oil” in a new television ad released Monday, signaling an escalation of a general election campaign and a vigorous debate over gas prices.
“In all these fights, Mitt Romney’s stood with Big Oil – for their tax breaks, attacking higher mileage standards and renewables,” the Obama campaign said in the new ad, which marked the first time the president’s campaign has publicly attacked Romney by name and made clear it views the former Massachusetts governor as Obama’s likely opponent next fall.
Back in 2008, Barack Obama was the top recipient of donations from British Petroleum. But we’re not supposed to mention that. The AP sure won’t. It’s one big pity party for Obama.
The ads, however, show the degree to which the Obama campaign needs to defend itself against unlimited money raised by outside groups supporting Republicans. Priorities USA has struggled to compete with some of its Republican rivals, forcing Obama’s team to go on the defense and spend money on TV ads seven months before the election.
Poor thing just can’t defend himself.
