The Most Foul Romney Ad Yet

Just as Romney and Ryan decry the utterly "negative" Obama campaign.  Charles P. Pierce calls this new ad out and out racist.   It is, in any case,  totally false.  Pierce  titled it, "Mitt Romney is Stuck in the Racist Sewer of Our Politics."  Excerpt: "There is nothing for now than to say, flat-out, that Willard Romney has decided that the only way he can become president is to become a racist and to appeal to the racist base of his party. This is the second ad in as many weeks centered on the general theme of The Negro President Wants To Give Your Money To The Black People Like Him....the dogwhistles are now air-raid sirens, and  the Republicans are no longer even trying hard to camouflage what they're actually saying.

"That is the muck in which Romney freely immersed himself, and now, like some toxic monster, he has become the muck in which he swam. .. I might point out that, sooner or later, if you go into this running river of sludge deeply enough, it no longer matters whether you are a racist or not, as long as you're so obviously promiscuous about performing as one on the public stage."

UPDATE:  Obama camp attacks ad (pointing out fact-checking sites agree with them) while Romney camp continues to defend. Not laughable McClatchy headline here, calling the Romney ad "not quite accurate."

Racist -- and an out-and-out, easily disproved, lie.

And where are the Republicans who specifically requested that the POTUS give their states more latitude in this manner?

Silent. As always, when they get what they ask for.
