I get the feeling Bill knew this ad would be made.

And he’s completely okay with it. Kind of like those hidden signals sent by military when they’re being forced to say something by their captors.

I like it, but the quote is a bit out of context.

Not a good ad. The quote by Clinton is 4 years old. They have many more recent Clinton quotes on tape and video that also undermine 0bama and praise Romney. Hopefully, those quotes will be rolled into follow on ads soon, as each completely negate his speech from last night.

Agree. We like it because we don’t like the Rats. It seems like a waste of money to me if an ad is not aimed at persuading those who have not yet committed to a candidate.

I like it. A lot. Puts Clinton’s speech into the proper half-hearted context.

“Not a good ad. The quote by Clinton is 4 years old.”

Yeah, I dont think its that strong. OK but not great.

Romney was called a murderer and this is Clinton saying something 4 years ago? meh.

Romney camp has a habit of just running media and democrats talking. I dont think that closes the sale.

They should do one where Romney says “I will defend religious liberty” then cut to the catholic church complaining, then cut to the DNC boo’ing God.

“Whose side are you on? “

I like Dick Morris’ description of Clinton’s speech, “It was like watching a great lawyer defending a guilty client.”
