“When you start running ads accusing your opponent of killing people, then you have lost your credibility.”
~ Romney adviser Eric Fehrnstrom
As if Obama had an iota of credibility, before the Soptic scandal erupted. But I digress.
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?
What does it say about a president’s character when he had his campaign raise money for the ad then stood by as his top aides were caught lying about it?
Doesn’t America deserve better than a president who will say or do anything to stay in power?
Update: Ed Morrissey adds perspective.
Meanwhile, BuzzFeed reported a few minutes ago that Romney had an opportunity to run a similar ad against Mike Huckabee in 2008 — and vetoed it:
A source close to the campaign tells me that this ad will be a “real buy” in swing states.
