Skip to comments.Santorum SuperPAC Seeks to Tie Romney and Gingrich to Obama
Posted on 02/24/2012 10:49:55 AM PST by Red Steel
A superPAC that supports Rick Santorum has released a new television ad in Ohio that seeks to tie both Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich to President Barack Obama.
ABC News was given a sneak peak at the ad, titled Obama. It will run in Ohio along with another Romney attack ad already running in Michigan called Vital Decisions. The Ohio buy is $257,000 and was announced Friday morning.
The narrator says over photos of Romney, Gingrich and Obama: How can Mitt Romney or Newt Gingrich beat Barack Obama when on the vital decisions theyre not much different? Like Obama, Gingrich supported individual health insurance mandates and lobbied for Freddie Mac. Mitt created RomneyCarethe blueprint for ObamaCare. And just like Obama, Romney even left Massachusetts 1 billion (dollars) in debt.
The ad asks Who can win? It then touts Santorums jobs plan.
Watch it here.
Santorum consistently goes after Romney for enacting health reform in Massachusetts and Gingrich for previously supporting health care mandates. Unlike the superPAC airing the ad on his behalf, the former Pennsylvania senator has said he wont attack Gingrich for his work at Freddie Mac because he was using his talents to provide for his family.
Vital Decisions, the ad that will run in both Ohio and Michigan, also ties Romney to Obama. The narrator reads over photographs of just Romney and Obama and the script is almost identical with Gingrich not mentioned.
Watch it here.
The ads will run through Wednesday. The superPAC Red White and Blue Fudn has poured $1.3 million into Michigan ahead of Tuesdays primary there.
A Quinnipiac Ohio poll from earlier this month had Santorum leading in the state with 36 percent to Romney with 29 percent and Gingrich with 20 percent.

You stay classy, Senator!
Santorum is sinking lower on my short list.
Oh I am so impressed. I can just ‘feel’ the Christian love and purity and honesty. s/
Politics ain’t bean bag, but it’s crap like this that he knows isn’t true that makes it hard to like him.
Newt Gingrich, his mentor, doesn’t deserve this and Santorum knows it.
Obama wants Santorum so he can destroy him (easily) and take Congress back for the Rats.
Santorum is the Rats’ enabler.
The main question is, is the ad untrue?
Exactly, I think Newt’s the one they really fear.
The ad is untrue.
Gingrich did not "lobbie" as a Lobbyist for Fannie sMac.
... there was an old—and I guess they all are old now— “Peanuts” comic strip where Charlie Brown was assigned to clean out the school's black board erasers—one had to smack them together out of doors to get the chalky dust out of them.
Before he started, the local Biblical scholar Linus Van Pelt told him, “Remember Lot's wife.”
After pounding the erasers Charlie Brown was totally covered in their dusty residue and came to understand Linus's scriptural warning and conceded,
“Linus was right, I have become a pillar of chalk.”
Agree, Onyx. Santo better tread lightly and realize that the enemy of my enemy is my friend..ie Newt is his potential ally, mentor and friend.
Play to win; by any means is just like Romney and Obama.
Newt is the best candidate who has solutions.
Frankly, I am finding Santorum more and more of a repulsive little twerp every day. I never liked him, but now I’m really, really disliking him!
Tie Romney and Gingrich to Obama
This should not be difficult, but probably lots of fun with 1000’s of FACTS!
Well given the PROUD GOP e is ignorant in the warning of Christ and have invited in the Sodomites to run their party, I figured I would do what I could to remind people of Christ's warning.
