Skip to comments.New TV ad to attack Obama, Geithner on lost Delphi pensions [VIDEO]

A new video advertisement from conservative advocacy group Let Freedom Ring features the stories of several Delphi salaried retirees, who lost their pensions at the hand of the Secretary Tim Geithners Department of Treasury.
I would ask President Obama why I had no rights and he had all the rights to take my pension away and never ever look back and say not only did I take it from Mary Miller, but I took it from 20,000 other people and their families, one Delphi salaried retiree, Mary Miller, says in the ad.
Its made life pretty rough. Ive really struggled to pay for the basics, Miller also says in the ad, adding that the Obama administrations actions led to her losing over 30 percent of my pension.
The ad is destined for television sets and online ads in the battleground states of Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia, Let Freedom Ring executive director Alex Cortes said in an email to The Daily Caller.
GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romneys campaign has addressed the Delphi pension as well, in a May web video.
Delphi salaried retiree Mary Southerland recounts how she had interviewed with General Motors at 17 and was hired on at that time, so I had literally spent my whole life with General Motors and Delphi.
Both my husband and I worked for Delphi, and we both lost well over 40 percent of our retirement, Southerland said.

That was a good ad. I hope our side can keep this up.
Is this actually a TV ad or just a web video? 1:36 is a bit of an odd time to be a TV ad...and it doesn’t have the disclaimer “...responsible for the content of this advertising” at the end.
Good, but too long for TV and that’s the medium that needs to be hammered.
He wants to play class warfare. This was a lost opportunity.
Romney should point out all the jobs Obama killed when he shut all those Republican owned auto dealerships, jobs that were and will be lost when all those coal-fired utilities will be closed and all the coal mining jobs that have been and will be lost in his war against coal. Then Romney can point out the lost of potential jobs from Obama’s delay on the pipeline from Canada and as well as the potential loss of jobs from not promoting offshore drilling. Then Romney can point out how many jobs will be lost and jobs not created because of Obamacare.
I agree with you — and I would cut out the Obama speaking segment. Why give him a soapbox in the ad?
Is there more data to back up the theory that Republican owned dealerships were targeted by Obamao? I know personally of two GM dealerships (both Republican owned) that were forced to shut down. One co-owned by my Republican brother. And another (very large one) in Ohio that was previously owned by an African American guy who, in previous years just before his death in 2006 had donated about $24K to Demoncrats....but when his son (apparently a Republican) took over the dealerships, he stopped contributions to Demoncrats and ended up having his profitable GM dealership shut down.
Not theory just facts. I recall that an analysis which factually proved that an overwhelming fraction of dealerships shut down were Republican owned.
