Boy the hits from the Romney campaign just keep on coming….I don’t know if you saw it but Pres. Obama’s campaign put out an incredibly effective ad with Romney singing “America the Beautiful” while panning through the towns and factories he decimated via Bain’s vulture capitalism. So in response, the Romney campaign put out their own ad showing the President singing Al Green, because you know he’s all blackity-black. Well, just to put a little a la mode on your apple pie and make that little dog whistle louder, a Romney spokesperson had this to say:
It’s the difference between the songs that they’re singing,” Mrs Welch said. “Mitt Romney didn’t exactly do a beautiful job on that song, but think about what he’s singing, OK? I mean it’s that patriotic song and he goes all the way through it. Then you’ve got the very cool Barack Obama singing Al Green. That is the two different Americas. Isn’t it?*
Ummmm, no Mrs. Welch, it isn’t two different Americas. That’s what Mrs. Welch, Mitt Romney and the rest of the GOP doesn’t seem to understand. It’s all one America, you snobby, racist, sorry excuse for an American.
