Romney Releases New TV Ad: ‘Strong Leadership’

Today, Romney for President released a new television advertisement. Here is ‘Strong Leadership‘ (something sorely lacking with our current out-of-touch president):


As Governor of Massachusetts, Mitt Romney demonstrated strong leadership—reducing the unemployment rate and balancing budgets without raising taxes. As president, Mitt Romney will do the same to help create jobs and get our country back on track.

Ad facts:

Under Governor Romney, Massachusetts Added Tens Of Thousands Of Net New Jobs – The Best Jobs Record Of Any Massachusetts Governor In The Last Decade. (Bureau of Labor Statistics, www.bls.gov, Accessed 5/31/12)

Massachusetts’ Unemployment Rate Fell From 5.6% To 4.7% During The Romney Administration. (Bureau of Labor Statistics, www.bls.gov, 5/30/12)

Governor Romney Closed A Nearly $3 Billion Shortfall Without Raising Taxes And Balanced Four Budgets. (Pam Belluck, “Romney Candidacy Puts Massachusetts Economy In Spotlight,” The New York Times, 3/16/07)

From day one as president, Mitt Romney’s strong leadership will make all the difference on jobs.”

Yesterday Obama released his own ad, which will run on national cable and air on television in nine battleground states. It features Obama pushing his “wealthiest Americans should pay a bit more” class warfare meme and a blaming narrative - “Congress refuses to act.”

Yes, America. Strong leadership will make all the difference.


GOP Presidential Nominee Mitt Romney is pictured at one of the many round table meetings he held during the primaries for voters to share concerns. Time and time again, fixing the economy and reining in America's massive debt was uppermost on their minds.

It was pancakes and eggs and FOX & Friends in the Prairie State this morning…

Governor Romney met with voters very early this morning at Pancakes Eggcetera in Rosemont, Illinois to rally support ahead of their delegate-rich primary next Tuesday. He spoke on jobs/economy, gasoline prices, housing market, and Obama’s 18 minute Hollywood created infomercial (*poster below):

Mitt Romney pans new Obama documentary with two thumbs down

Republican presidential contender Mitt Romney gavePresident Obama’s new campaign infomercial two thumbs down at an Illinois campaign event on Friday morning.

The “so-called documentary about President Obama is now on the Internet . And you can take a look at it. It’s about 17 or 18 minutes,” Romney said at a diner outside Chicago.

He ridiculed director Davis Guggenheim for remarking recently that he had nothing negative to say about Obama. Romney used that as a takeoff point to attack the president over gas prices, the struggling housing market and continued high unemployment.

I’ll give you some help, Mr. Guggenheim,” Romney said. “You can make a call to some of the moms that are having a hard time paying for gas as they get their kids to and from school and practice and music lessons. And you can also talk to the people who are having a hard time getting to and from work, given the price of gasoline.”
[...]
…Romney said gasoline prices “have gone through the roof, in part because of this president’s failure to develop our energy resources.”

Later, FOX & Friends’ Alisyn Camerota, Steve Doocy, and Brian Kilmeade caught up with The Gov at the restaurant. Here’s the interview:

Using the telephone, Romney also held a half-hour townhall with Illinois Republicans. He hammered home the point that Rick Santorum is an ECONOMIC LIGHTWEIGHT :

Romney, in a half-hour telephone town hall to Illinois Republicans solicited by his campaign, warned the state’s voters to beware of Santorum.

“Sen. Santorum, for instance, is going to be campaigning in Illinois,” Romney said. “I think you’ll find he’s an economic lightweight — not because he isn’t an intelligent person but because not having ever spent any time in the private sector. He really doesn’t understand fundamentally what it takes to make this economy grow and thrive and add jobs. The economy is in my wheelhouse, it’s something I know well.”

Romney sought to paint Santorum and Gingrich as lifelong creatures of Washington while portraying himself as spending his life “in the real economy.”

I’ve actually run things,” Romney said. “Now as you know, we elected three years ago a president who’d never run anything. And it hasn’t worked out so well. And both Speaker Gingrich and Sen. Santorum, like the current president, have not really run anything. I think it helps to have run something and understand the economy by working in the real economy.”

Leaving no media stone unturned, Romney for President released a new television ad today in Illinois titled Wrong Choice:

Rick Santorum’s weakness is the economy and his economic plan has been criticized as the worst of all the GOP candidates. Mitt Romney has proposed the boldest plan since Ronald Reagan and has the leadership experience to lead our country.

Video text

Mitt Romney: “I am going to do something to government. I’m going to make it simpler, and smaller, and smarter.

Getting rid of programs, turning programs back to states, and finally making government itself more efficient.

I’m going to get rid of Obamacare.

It is a moral imperative for America to stop spending more money than we take in.

It’s killing jobs and it’s keeping our kids from having the bright prospects they deserve.

The experience of balancing budgets is desperately needed in Washington and I will take it there.

I’m Mitt Romney and I approve this message.”

(emphasis added)

Tomorrow, Governor Romney will continue reinforcing his New Hampshire lead with stops in Londonderry and Portsmouth. Then, in the evening, he heads to Davenport, IA.

It’s getting exciting now!
