We’ve seen probably the nastiest, dirtiest campaign in American history by the failed president. And now he’s got the balls to claim it’s Mitt Romney running a dirty campaign.
The descent into self-parody is pretty much complete.
I can script the media reaction: Governor Romney, why are you running such a dirty campaign?!?!
The Web video is another attempt by Obama’s campaign to counter-act Romney’s recent charge that Obama plans to former President Bill Clinton-era recent welfare reforms by loosening the welfare-to-work requirements. Romney has released a TV ad and several videos seeking to cast doubt on Obama’s claim to strengthening the program. Obama has fired back in his own TV adthat Romney’s claims are false.
The new Obama video is released on the same day Romney’s campaign released a new TV ad blaming the president for a negative attack ad produced by Priorities USA, the super-PAC supporting Obama.
“What does it say about a president’s character when his campaign tries to use the tragedy of a woman’s death for political gain?” Romney’s ad asks.
Monday on the campaign trail, Romney blasted Obama for failing to denounce the ad, saying: “Mr. President, get your campaign out of the gutter.”
To no surprise, this clip is filled with MSNBC hacks regurgitating Obama talking points.
