Pro-Gingrich Group Posts Anti-Romney Ad, Featuring McCain
NY Slimes ^ | January 4, 2012 | By MICHAEL D. SHEAR

Posted on 01/05/2012 11:35:36 AM PST by US Navy Vet

MANCHESTER N.H. — On the day Mitt Romney rolled out the endorsement of Senator John McCain of Arizona, a “super PAC” backing Newt Gingrich dug out an old gem and put in on the Web.

The PAC, Winning Our Future, posted a commercial slamming Mr. Romney by using past footage of him offering conflicting positions on issues like abortion, gun control and what it means to be a Republican.

“I will preserve and protect a woman’s right to choose and am devoted and dedicated to honoring my word in that regard,” he says.

But moments later, in another clip, he says: “You can go back to YouTube and look at what I said. I never said I was pro-choice.”

But it’s the kicker to the ad that makes it significant.

Multiple Choice Mitt disgusts me.

He will say ANYTHING to get elected.

Very effective. Not sure it will be effective in NH but it will sure be effective in SC and FL.

Then he still is pro-abortion...

Devotion and dedication means for life...

Yeah that might be a problem. I don’t know how many true Conservatives there are in New Hampshire.

The phunniest part of the Romney ad debacle is that McCain tried to pull his 2008 anti-Romney ad off their YouTube acct! http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/01/04/mitt-romney-john-mccain-youtube-attack-ad-removed-video_n_1184197.html

Keeping a finger on the Fox pulse.

OK - so here’s the lastest approach for the Romney campaign.

Romney is non-threatening - not a bomb thrower and will compare favorably against Obama who ‘scares’ voters with his ‘in your face’ attitude.

OTOH - Newt is a ‘war horse’ - just as scary as Bamster.

Remember - you read it here first;)

For a super PAC, Winning Our Future doesn’t seem to have much juice.

Yes the ad itself appears like it could be effective. But posting an old McCain ad on a less than stellar website seems pretty weak. Certainly doesn’t measure up to creating their own work and making significant ad buys with it.

Willard needs to feel some heat. If he thinks he can cruise to the convention with a cake walk, wait until the Dems put on their $Billion press. It’s going to get ugly and he had better be in shape to handle it if he is the nominee.

Hannity played it right on the air on Fox with mccain and romney both sitting there the day of the endorsement. It was hilarious. It was an actual mccain campaign ad from 2008.

Willie Milt Romnuts will win in Red Hampshire. Even the local media says the real interest lies in who finishes second...

“Mitt” is a political nothing. While I will vote in our election this November if “Mitt” is the candidate I will not cast a vote for President. I will vote for our congressman and the various proposed referendum..

Romnuts is right at home in pro-abortion Red Hampshire...there is a reason that more people are fleeing NH than any other New England state (based on figures from United Van Lines)...

is McCain approving the message purposely cut short so it sounds like he is saying, “I am John McCane and I approve of this mess”

Right but of course Newt would not. The geezer is clinging to the memories of the old days. Not a bad guy , time has passed him by .

McCain did not like Newt calling Mitt a liar so this is Newts answer to McLame and Mitt.

IT’S UNANIMOUS FOR RINO ROMNEY

One of those stories where I dislike everyone involve(, but since the other posters have McCain and Romney covered, I have to wonder if we`ll be seeing an ad in response to this, using Newt`s whining and crying about negative ads and how Romney should have control over what outside groups put in their ads.

And the ad is hardly devastating. Political opponents saying negative things during a campaign, then endorsing each other when one becomes the nominee?

That`s a lot less rare than, I dunno, Newt shaking hands with Clinton and agreeing to work together, taking a photo sitting cozily with Nancy Pelosi, or saying he completely agrees with...uh...Romneycare.

Never liked Newt. He talks positive until it`s time not to be positive. Then he`s a surly, bitchy Washington pol.

i was thinking the same thing about her endorsing Romney in South Carolina. I am sure she has gotten her direction form McCrazy for sure. Lindsey sure is becoming an old ugly queen isn’t she. Man it sucks being a gay old gal.

My New Hampshire prediction. I did VERY good predicting Iowa before the caucus’. I even did better than the media.

Anyway here we go. Romney will not do as well as he thinks because NH will be good to Huntsman.

Romney 38
Huntsman 26
Santorum 14
Paul 12
Newt 10
Perry 1

It needs to play on TV down in SC, over and over and over.
Old folks don’t have the internet, but they have a TV.
