Romney releases first general election TV ad

Source: AP

By STEVE PEOPLES,

WASHINGTON (AP) Mitt Romney's first general-election TV commercial promises he would introduce tax cuts and approve the Keystone XL oil pipeline on Day One of his presidency.

The Republican candidate's campaign released the ad Friday, coupling it with a fundraising pitch. The 30-second pitch is upbeat, in contrast to a spot President Barack Obama's campaign is running that criticizes Romney as a businessman. Romney has called the Obama ad "character assassination."

In Romney's commercial, his first since becoming the presumptive nominee, an announcer asks, "What would a Romney presidency be like?"

"Day One: President Romney immediately approves the Keystone pipeline, creating thousands of jobs that Obama blocked," the announcer declares, referring to a pipeline that Obama has delayed, which Republicans insist shows that Obama is hostile to the energy industry.

4. Yes

I saw one here in Virginia defending his energy policies against a Romney attack and mentioning how Romney ships jobs overseas. Then hits him on having a Swiss Bank Account.

5. Hmmmm

So in other words he wants to go back to the Bush policies, cater to big oil, de-regulate, and give tax cuts to the rich, that worked so well the last time, right?

The guy is a complete idiot, what else can you say when he wants to return to the same policies that took us into the worst recession in history!
