    Great ad. Especially like the fact she mentions she voted for Obama in ’08, but won’t be again.

  • Good one

  • (In the Dem’s brain)

    What manner of sorcery is this? A woman that can think for herself? Egads!

  • sjmom

    They’re running from Obama as fast as their legs can carry them. Not sure about a landslide but its not going to be a close vote either. I think Romney could win almost all of the swing states including Ohio plus a few other surprises.

    • cathmom

      Just hope Obama and his campaign don’t have any surprises for us before the election…….

      • sjmom

        I have no doubt they’re looking for one but they must not be able to find anything if they’re concentrating on “binders”.

        • Rightstuff1

          and don’t forget BigBird !!!

          I am thinking that too. October is almost over and Romney is extending his lead less than 3 weeks before the GE. If they had one I would think they would have brought it out by now.

          Even though Romney was not my 1st or 2nd choice, I set that aside and put my faith in God.

          • sjmom

            I was also a not Romney but I now have a great respect for he and Ann. Like you my faith is in God and I am having the most glorious time watching the Lord turn this election around. Wow, our God is an Awesome God!

        you can bet the farm that axlerod and the rest of the chicago machine is already looking into a way to get the elections cancelled.

      Everyone seems to worry about Ohio because no president was ever elected if he didn’t win that state. That is baloney. He can win the other 49 states and lose Ohio and win the election.

      Or should I say “the other 56 states?” Just kidding.

  • NeedMyCoffee

    I’m not a fan of this one. Yes, it clarifies his position on contraception, but did we really need to bring up abortion? That is not the primary issue in this campaign. The economy is and Romney is winning there. Yes, this ad mentions the economy at the end, but it was so last second it came across as awkward to me.

    • proudhispanicconservative

      I disagree the ad is very effective it points out that women’s issues are important but the economy is more important for everyone’s sake.

      • NeedMyCoffee

        I think it would have been more effective to have the same scenario with the woman in the kitchen with her children, but with her just talking about the economy. That would would have driven home the point that, unlike what the liberals think, the economy is the most important issue in this election to most women. By having her start out by talking about a ‘women’s issue’ I think it lessened the impact.

    At this point, there’s no point quibbling with Romney about his weak abortion position. He is pro-life enough, especially compare to the most radical pro-abortion politician this nation has ever elected.

    I see what he is trying to do here in making himself open to all women because the Dems are going to throw the kitchen sink at him these next two weeks (though I was surprise to hear Obama has pulled his negative ads; I don’t know about his PACs though). Romney just needs to narrow that women gap to less than 5 and he should be in good shape. Obama doesn’t have a chance in hell in winning the men vote this time around. But it is prudent for Romney to go after winning women to see if he can win this election in a big way, which I think he will after the next debate.

    We are almost there! We are two weeks away from the fundamental restoration of America! Romney/Ryan 2012!

    • Romney is a little to the right of the country on this issue. But that doesn’t matter if Roe doesn’t get overturned in the first place. And a majority of the country, while paying lip service to Roe, definitely do not agree with Obama’s position. Voters are much closer to Condi, meaning waiting periods, parental consent and other restrictions, short of an outright ban.

        Have you watched ? If not, may I encourage you to watch it and tell me your thoughts afterward?

    • jaybenson

      Until Obama was elected I was a Pro-life Extremist who believed there should be absolutely NO exceptions. Obama’s Presidency has proven to me there is at least one exception that exists. 😛

      • Galatiansch2vs20

        To be pro-life all the time when it comes to the unborn is not an extremist position…it’s right. Obama should not have been aborted prior to birth, but should be tried for the crimes he has committed.

    • badbadlibs

      Gov. Romney believes exactly as the Mormon church teaches. It’s a weak abortion position as you’ve stated, but it’s the church’s core beliefs.

  • I guess to reach out to more moderate democrats and independents it’s a good ad that will reach them.

  • John3_3

    good ad. Let me tell you all something: Romney is running an outstanding campaign! This man is S*M*A*R*T! He knows what he is doing and he has the awesome ability to convey his message so all can understand it and he knows exactly how to put an ad together to get his message across. This ad was great, it addressed an issue that Obama has been lying about and it is right to the point.

    There are somethings that I don’t agree with him on (i believe in no exceptions- its either murder or not) but I really like this man and I can see him leading us into economic recovery and maybe be the next Reagan! I can only pray so!

  • hbnolikeee

    Mitt should put out a very simple add regarding Bari’s handling of the killings of our people in Libya. No need to focus on when he finally called a spade a spade. Better to ask this one question:

    “If you didn’t have the information for two weeks, why did your administration including yourself at the UN keep blaming these killings on a video clip?”

    That question needs to be the point in the sand, no more no less.

  • iaintlyin

    no apology? i mean, its not as though you gave wrong directions to Carvel.

  • ChicksLoveRight

    YES!!! No matter what, this election is and should be about ECONOMY! Romney needs to remind people about that!

  • bobemakk

    Excellent video.

  • stage9

    I think it’s clear where Obamney stands on social issues. It’s the same as Obama’s.

    • Galatiansch2vs20

      I think Romney’s own record and stance on the ‘social issues’ is why he has made the economy his number one issue… the fact that so many in this country embrace a right to kill the defenseless unborn under any circumstance is a sign of moral decay:

      “History fails to record a single precedent in which nations subject to moral decay have not passed in to political and economic decline.” – Douglas MacArthur, Supreme Commander of Allied Forces in the Pacific during WWII

    The Dems are waging a war on children.

  • wodiej

    good ad. Social issues are not the #1 issue this election-jobs are. Period, over and out. Romney has done a fantastic job of staying on it.
