Obama for America… provides Team Romney with its latest ad.

For free.  Here’s Mitt Romney‘s latest strike-while-the-iron-is-hot attack ad “Big Bain Backfire:”

Nice to see that they’re keeping up with events, huh?

 

Anyway, as a good general rule: if you have a politician from your own side rushing to push back on your new angle of attack, then you may have a problem. If you then have to make that politician explain and retract his earlier statements – in what pretty much everyone else is calling a “hostage video” – then you probably do have a problem. And if you then get another politician from your own side rushing to condemn said hostage video, then you have several problems. And one of those problems is that you have just demonstrated that you have no control over your own Presidential campaign.

You know, when Republicans said that the attack ads against Obama would more or less write themselves… well, we meant it. We just didn’t really think that the Democrats would be so kind as to actually cut the video rebuttals for us, too.
