A new ad from a pro-Obama PAC this morning takes an emotional approach to undermining Mitt Romney and his Bain background, while also raising the key Democratic issue of health care reform and broad coverage. Conservatives are already crying foul, using the word “toxic,” according to The Nation, while Romney’s campaign is running ads that are not only even more negative, but blatantly false.
Pundits are raising the question of whether the President has given up on trying to win votes among the white “blue collar” class, the so-called “Reagan Democrats,” including union members in the South? He has openly courted the gay vote and the Latino vote.
“The ad is the fifth in a series of a $20 million television and online project to educate voters about Mitt Romney’s business record and their impact on middle class families. The first four related ads, “Heads or Tails”, “Loris”, “Donnie” and “Stage” have been airing since mid-May.”
