Posted on 09/09/2012 11:25:31 AM PDT by afraidfortherepublic
Mitt Romneys campaign went on the air in Wisconsin on Sunday, expanding its advertising offensive against President Barack Obama and making a play for a state that would give Romney some much-needed breathing room on the electoral map.
The commercial is the 16th Better Future advertisement Romney has released in nine swing states since Obamas speech at the Democratic National Convention in an attempt to blunt any momentum Obama may have received coming out of the convention. Each ad is specifically tailored for each state and various demographics.
This president can ask us to be patient, Romney says in the ad This president can tell us it was someone elses fault. But this president cannot tell us that youre better off today than when he took office.
A narrator then says, theres a prairie fire of debt that grows over $3 billion dollars per day, and notes Romney would create over 240,000 new jobs for Wisconsin.
Wisconsin was thought to be a shoo-in for Obama and was included in the baseline of states the Obama campaign assumed it would win.
However, when Romney put Wisconsin native and Congressman Paul Ryan on the ticket, Wisconsin became a swing state. In addition, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) instituted public sector and fiscal reforms to give the state a budget surplus without raising taxes after he was elected in 2010, Wisconsin voters prevented him from being recalled because Walkers reforms were working.
Wisconsin voters may be receptive to Romneys economic message. If Romney could win Wisconsin, he would not have to draw an inside straight, so to speak, and run the table in Ohio, Florida, Virginia, and North Carolina to have any chance at winning the election.

Wisconsin — Romney expands ad buy ping
FReep Mail me if you want on, or off, this Wisconsin interest ping list.
I apologize if anyone on this ping list has asked to be removed. I’ve been out of town for the last three weeks, and my “at home” computer lists may not have all been updated. Just let me know if you received this ping in error.
Gosh, I hope these work. I live in NJ and it’s hopeless here. And, these recent pols in Zero’s favor have me scared.
Pray for America.
Perfect result: Obama wins the popular vote and Mittens wins the electoral college. Watch them squirm.
Obama is only leading by 7% in NEW JERSEY!!
That could happen. I wouldnt be surprised if Obama wins the popular vote and Romney wins the electoral college
I'm still chortling....nay, guffawing!
See #9! :~)
Well, in the famous words of their infamous Governor, the people should “Get off the damned beach! You are tan enough.”
Once they come indoors, they should watch Fox News and learn what this election is all about.
I can understand "Watch them squirm", but why would losing the popular vote while winning the electoral college be a "perfect result"?
Anybody else notice how when the narrator of the ad says “... we’re not better off under president Obama”, it sounds like she says PRESENT Obama? LOL!
Waste of money by Romeny. He has no chance in WI. He has no chance on PA, NH,or MI either. He needs to try and lock down the Bush states of 2000 and 2004. It’s his only slim chance, but I am pretty certain 0bamam locked up Ohio at his convention. They hate Kasich and the Republicans there.
Yes, I heard “present” not “pres-i-dent, Good one!
He’s pulled his ads from PA and MI. At this point, trailing coming out of the conventions, I’d say his only shot is to do extraordinarily well in the debates. Reagan turned around his campaign with one debate, but there’s never going to be another Reagan.
