New Obama Campaign Ad: 'Romney Murdered Jon Benet Ramsey'Topics: Political News and commentaries
CHICAGO -- With campaign rhetoric becoming increasingly heated and both presidential nominees releasing more attack ads, a new 30-second spot from the Obama campaign this week accuses his opponent Mitt Romney of committing the 1996 murder of 6-year-old beauty pageant queen JonBenet Ramsey.It's worth your time to read the whole piece. It goes on to 'reveal' that according to sources at Obama's Chicago headquarters (anonymous, of course), the "He Did It" commercial is just the first in a new series of attack ads that accuses Romney of drowning actress Natalie Wood in 1981, convincing cult leader David Koresh to burn down the Branch Davidian ranch in Waco, TX, and even causing the Challenger disaster.
Titled "He Did It," the advertisement asks if anyone can truly remember where Romney was the night of the child's murder, and whether the U.S. populace wants a president capable of strangling a little girl and dumping her body in her parents' basement.
President Obama appears at the end of the advertisement to approve the message.
"I think this is a fair ad, and I think Mitt Romney owes an explanation to the American people as to why he murdered JonBenet Ramsey," said Obama campaign manager Jim Messina, who called the commercial's black-and-white reenactment of Mitt Romney carrying a kicking and screaming child to her death "accurate." "Ultimately, voters need to know who they're getting with Mitt Romney: a job- and child-killing businessman who is so deceitful he won't release his tax returns or admit to a senseless murder that shook the nation to its core." ...
Over a silhouette of Romney walking away from the Ramsey mansion -- blood dripping from his hands -- the commercial's narrator asks, "If Mitt Romney kept the murder of JonBenet a secret from the American people, what else is he hiding?"
Moreover, at the end of the spot a smiling Romney is seen at a campaign event saying, "I killed her, and I had a good time." Sources from the Romney campaign were quick to announce that the audio and video had been cobbled together from different statements he made during that particular rally.
