Mitt’s Obama-Esque New Ad

So I’m watching Romney’s latest ad, and reading the script…

Script For “Chairs” (TV:30):


GOVERNOR MITT ROMNEY:  “I keep hearing the same thing, that Washington is broken.


“I hear the people say they think we deserve health care for all our citizens, but not government health care and that hasn’t been done.


“They say we ought to be able to get a reduction in the burden on the middle class, and that hasn’t been done.


“They say we ought to solve the immigration problem in this country.  It hasn’t been done. 


“If you send the same people back to Washington just to sit in different chairs, nothing will happen. 


“I will change Washington.  I will take it apart and put it back together.  I know how to bring change.


“I’m Mitt Romney and I approved this message.”

and I’m thinking, other than a vaguely disapproving line about “government” health care, is there anything in this ad that couldn’t be in Barack Obama’s?
The ad, unsurprisingly, is only running in Florida.

Republican Mark Harris has a 905-vote lead ... Read More
