Well, we’ve officially kicked of the political season with the negative attack campaign ads. Nothing about the candidate’s message or their ideas or plans or records. Just the usual “the other guy is worse than me”, filmed in grainy black and while video, using the voice narration of someone sounding like the narrator on Forensic Files. Better settle in folks, we have a whole year of this to live through.
A political group working to elect Mitt Romney is launching TV ads in Tampa Bay criticizing former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich as a baggage-laden disaster against whom President Barack Obama would love to run.
“Barack Obama’s plan is working. Destroy Mitt Romney. Run against Newt Gingrich. Newt has a ton of baggage,” says a female narrator, who cites congressional ethics violation fines Gingrich paid, consulting fees he received from Freddie Mac, and his positions on illegal immigration.
