2. Powerful.

A very solid way to start the discussion over Mitt Romney's record.

3. I'm glad to see they aren't coming out timid...

The more the RW is upset, the more it shows they have been gored. Kerry should have done the same.

4. Oh they'll raise the hue & cry over this one!

Which will back fire in a big way. Notice how Team Obama is playing things so that when GOP cries victim they only look worse?

5. Something to Think About

It is a good ad. It gives people something to think about. Do you really want your country run like that?

11. More importantly we need this kind of ad approach in Congressional elections.

 

Give the President a Congress that works!

8. Bravo! And they did it by telling the plain truth:

Romney destroyed jobs and has NO IDEA how to create them.

10. I love the way the RomneyEconomics site is set up -- very concise points,

easy to just click through and get the whole story. They were wise to do it this way instead of a big, long, explanation!

The spot and the site are powerful!

12. Best political ad I've ever seen.

People speaking from their hearts about what Romney and his buddies did to them. That is compelling!

On edit -- The Republicans will scream and tear their hair over this one. The fact that the video exists will become the story.

Their screams will do them more harm than the video because the more they scream, the more people will choose to watch and pay attention to the video.

The truth hurts, and this story and these people are the truth

-- and what's most important, they sound and look as true as they are. Everybody in middle America know those people.

Mitt Romney and his Republican friends don't know them and never will.

15. Good ! Get on BRUTAL OFFENSE and STAY THERE ! It's a great ad because:

 

It amplifies the narrative that RoMONEY is UNLIKEABLE, UNTRUSTWORTHY, and a HEARTLESS CORPORATE TOADIE. So it is a great sustainable line of attack that they must continue on to election day over and over and over again. It is great because it uses MIDDLE CLASS BLUE COLLAR WHITE MALES who are REAL people and very sincere. This is a constituency with which we need to make futher inroads. The script is great and REAL. The graphics are REAL and very hard-hitting. It makes the viewer angry. These victims look and sound like ANY American we might have in our family. It evokes emotion on a very GUT level.

Very importantly, it destroys RoMONEY's credibility on the economy and reinforces Obama's CREDENTIALS and value differences on their approaches to the economy. The economy is what Mitt is trying to tout as his strong suit. This ATTACKS HIS CREDIBILITY on his number one selling point. IT IS A BRILLIANT AD !

They should make 60-second and 30-second versions and run it EVERYWHERE and ENDLESSLY.
