New Romney web ad continues hammering Obama for attacking success

It’s clear that Romney isn’t going to let up attacking Obama for his dreadful comments attacking success anytime soon, and I think that’s awesome. And this ad is fantastic. Just watch:



The thing that really made this ad work for me was when the business owner started asking if someone else took out the loan on his fathers house or made payroll every week. It really emphasizes the hard work of the individual that we all understand and just makes Obama’s comments even more ludicrous. Great ad.

I still can’t believe the president said, “…you didn’t build that!” That was a roundhouse slap to the face of so many people trying to do their part to get America growing and going again….and NoShowObama slaps ’em down. Way to encourage folks and make ’em want to start businesses on their own.

FANTASTIC AD!!!! It really was. There are literally millions of people like this all over America who put everything on the line to keep small businesses going. They are the backbone of this nation and provide the bulk of the jobs out there for most Americans. Not only do they need to be honored, but they need to be helped and encouraged in every way possible. It’s NOT more government that we need, it’s less laws and regulations that kill the very businesses that we want to create. I hope Romney keeps this up, because I think most hard-working Americans can relate to it. Great ad.

This ad is very Reaganesque. It has that “America is great because of its people” feel. I’d whittle this down to a 60-second TV ad by leaving off Romney’s words. His words aren’t bad; it’s just that the business guy says it all so well that Romney’s thoughts are basically redundant. This is my favorite Romney ad so far.

If you think about it Obama has insulted many Americans; the business community being the latest to suffer his arrogance. First it was the Jews when he threw Israel under the bus, the senior citizens when he cut $500 Billion from Medicare, Christians are under continual assault, taxpayers who should pay more so he can spend more and others. He is making the rounds denigrating all which someone holds dear. Now look at who he has pandered to; Islamists, unions, illegal aliens and environmentalists among others. As I have said all along his idea of “hope and change” was to bring hell and chaos upon us. We cannot let it stand and must not only remove him in November but all of his cohorts in Congress. IT IS TIME FOR A CHANGE. IT IS OUR TIME TO TAKE OUR NATION BACK AND WE MUST NOT FAIL. WITH GOD ON OUR… Read more »

Obama is like Jim Jones….. It’s time to put the Kool-Aid down before killing yourselves, people. In 2008, I saw “that” look many people had.. I knew we were in trouble. Big time. They were hypnotized by a false political prophet.

We need to financially support Romney & PRAY Obama out of office. It’s time to REALLY pray. Our country IS at stake.

BTW, Great ad. They shoudl do this more often.
The libs have mastered the art of the “protected surrogate”. Getting people to criticize your opponent who appear to be to virutous to question.
We need to start putting real Americans out front, and have them describe what this man has done to the economy, and show that not allof these “rich people” are lighting giant cigars with $100 bills while flying on thier private jet.

Here is an appropriate quote from “Atlas Shrugged”. Ayn Rand was certainly prophetic. Amazingly so. Much like George Orwell has been. Here it is:

“He didn’t invent iron ore and blast furnaces, did he?”

“Who?”

“Rearden. He didn’t invent smelting and chemistry and air compression. He couldn’t have invented his Metal but for thousands and thousands of other people. His Metal! Why does he think it’s his? Why does he think it’s his invention? Everybody uses the work of everybody else. Nobody ever invents anything.”

She said, puzzled, “But the iron ore and all those other things were there all the time. Why didn’t anybody else make that Metal, but Mr. Rearden did?”

Kaboom.

Rshill7 – That is BRILLIANT! Thank you for remembering that little gem.

It just reminds me that there are really no “new” arguments. It’s the same shiite every generation and it’s a sad truth that we have to re-learn it everytime.

Actually… the truth is that it is the natural state of man to:

1) dominate one another
2) seek “security” and “protection” from our fears

Neither of these work in a free society because freedom requires

1) Cooperation for our enlightened self-interest
2) Faith that God is the only one who can provide “security” and “protection.”

That is why each generation must fight our tendency to revert back from the genious of the Founding Fathers into a modern form of despotism and slavery.

Pass on the light of liberty and faith in God to our children and there will always be hope!

Why are you demonizing us for it? We are the solution, not the problem.

For a communist, successful entrepreneurs are the problem.

It seems Romney and others are finally willing to admit that this whole naive idea that these Statist clowns are “not evil, just wrong” is impossible to support.

Since Obama was elected, I’ve thought it might be for the best because, as is often said, experience is the best teacher. Our national experience of destructive communist policies, as well as all the lies, corruption, and general lawlessness that go with it, may (I pray to God) serve to educate us against its dangers for a long time.

Strong ad.

Much has been said about Obama’s insulting words in Roanoke, and rightly so. However the tone in which they’re spoken has not been mentioned very much, if at all.
He’s just dripping with contempt. Almost to the point of listening to a true demogogue. Frightening. If you contrast that with the times he seems preternatuarlly calm, it strikes me you are on to something , Joe.

I think Obowma has set that 250,000 number as his line in the sand for sucess.
That is, you are allowed to succeed up to that point (for now). Anything beyond that
will have to be punished and the penalty to the government creator for free stuff etc.

Obama has lost his way. Those vacations, nice food, golf and immunity from prosecution for using drugs in the White House have all gone to the top of his pointy little, “potatoe” head.

Why do you say Obama has lost his way? It has always been his way! Private property and private business does not exist in a Communist regime. He is just polishing his message! He truly believes the American people want Communism and that they want him as their dictator. He is that delusional.

Yes! I’ve been saying we should drill for our own oil and, once we get the oil flowing, we should then pull up our oil rigs in the ME and let those sand rats figure out how to get the oil out of the ground themselves. It is our technology that is pumping that oil for them.

While we’re at it, end islamic immigration and send them back to whatever 7th century sandbox they crawled in from.

Obama alone cannot destroy America. I agree. What is discouraging to me is that, even with him virtually coming out of the closet as a full-fledged Communist, the polls are showing the presidential race in a dead heat. That means that at least 33% of Americans want Marxism to replace Capitalism. The other 15% or so who support Obama do so only because he is black and they are racists.
