Skip to comments.In latest Romney ad, Hillary Clinton attacks Obama
Posted on 06/29/2012 4:36:34 PM PDT by NKP_Vet
In his effort to challenge President Barack Obama's attacks on his jobs record, Mitt Romney has enlisted a surprising new surrogate: Hillary Clinton.
The Romney campaign quietly launched a new 30-second television ad Friday featuring footage of Clinton campaigning against Obama during the 2008 Democratic presidential primary, in which she accused Obama of lying about her record.
"Shame on you, Barack Obama," Clinton says in the footage recycled in the Romney spot.
The Romney ad uses the Clinton footage to back up a recent Washington Post Fact Checker item that said a recent Obama ad accusing Romney of outsourcing jobs overseas while he was governor of Massachusetts was "misleading, unfair and untrue."
"But that's Barack Obama," a narrator in the Romney ad declares. "He also attacked Hillary Clinton with vicious lies."
The Clinton footage comes from a campaign event held just before the Ohio primary in 2008, when Clinton attacked Obama for mailers she said mischaracterized her positions on health care reform and the North American Free Trade Agreement.

Now someone had to give permission to let them run that.
I wonder who does not like Obamy?
This, is gonna be a great campaign to watch.
That was such a great ad.
THAT was a great ad! Very effective!
Short and to the point.
See tag line.
Ya think? I don’t think that permission is needed once it’s been aired on public airways.
There’s a faint possibility that I’m wrong.
No. Never happen. Interesting speculation but impossible.
Hillary calling somebody a liar is laughable
I still remember how she and Bubba continually condemned FOX news when they were running the WH
But during the primaries when she was denied access by the MSM in favor of Obama she ran to FOX to get her message out
It may be that is was aired on the general public and is public knowledge, but the spot is used for adverts. I am certain that they have to have permission for that. It would be like if I were to use a spot that you put out for the general consumption by the public, and I used it to gain a particular advantage either financially or other.
I understand that the Klintoons really, REALLY, dislike Obama and his cronies.
Shame on the voters who voted the magic negro into office.
The Supercourt says when it comes to free speech...anything goes.
I'd bet you'd have said the same thing about Roberts yesterday morning.
It’s only beginning. Wasn’t at all for Romney during the primary, but mittens is gonna get nasty wit’ Bro-bama.....aka Afro-bama.
I think Romney knows what Mccain and his ignorant lackeys (Wallace and Schmidt) could never figure out. That you have to go right at this guy.
Free speech? By who?
Yup...if your opponent brings fists, you bring a knife...if he’s got a knife, you bring a gun...he’s got a gun, you bring a tank.
Romney’s gotta take off the gloves and not be afraid of callin this guy out.
And if a tank, an atom bomb, and if an atom bomb...
They need to use the Hillary clip of her shrieking about the right to disagree with any administration...
Hmm, if her permission is required, then who is helping who? May be clever, but it makes me distrust Romney even more, which is amazing since I already don’t trust him a quarter of a milimeter.
