Washington - Obama's New Campaign Ad Mockingly Shows Romney Singing "America The Beautiful"
Washington - President Obamaâ€™s campaign continued on Saturday to prosecute its case against Mitt Romney for holding offshore accounts, releasing a new television ad that mockingly shows Mr. Romney, the Republican candidate, singing â€śAmerica the Beautiful.â€ť
The presidentâ€™s campaign has spent more than a week hammering Mr. Romneyâ€™s personal wealth and calling on him to disclose more information about his personal finances by releasing his tax returns.
The new ad â€” which the campaign said was running in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, North Carolina, Nevada, New Hampshire, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Virginia â€” reminds viewers of those issues even as it shows a clip of Mr. Romney singing at a campaign event in Florida earlier this year.
It says Mr. Romney shipped jobs to Mexico, China and India â€” accusations that Mr. Romneyâ€™s campaign vehemently denies. And it notes that Mr. Romney had â€śmillionsâ€ť in a Swiss bank account and â€śtax havensâ€ť in Bermuda and the Cayman Islands.
â€śMitt Romneyâ€™s not the solution,â€ť the ad states. â€śHeâ€™s the problem.â€ť
