Romney’s New Ads: Obama Econ Not Getting Better, Cherished Friend Israel

Today, Romney for President released two fantastic new television ads.

The first is titled “It’s Just Not Getting Better.” Under President Obama, our economy is just not getting better. Americans are suffering. As former NH Gov John Sununu said, “It’s a DISASTER.”

Governor Romney has a plan and the experience to build a stronger, robust middle class with more jobs and MORE TAKE-HOME PAY. And, regardless of the tiresome, lying rhetoric coming from Obamaville, Romney is NOT going to raise taxes on the middle class. Mitt Romney is the leader we need:


An excerpt from Romney’s radio interview with Sean Hannity on August 2, 2012:

“Help is on the way for the middle class.”

It’s a shocker.

After nearly four years as President of the United States, Obama hasn’t stepped foot in Israel. To put his turned-up nose in perspective, here’s a list of countries Obama HAS visited: Canada, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Czech Republic, Turkey, Iraq, Mexico, Republic of Trinidad and Tobago, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Russia, Italy, Vatican City, Ghana, Denmark, Japan, Singapore, China, So. Korea, Norway, Afghanistan, India, Indonesia, Portugal, Brazil, Chile, El Salvador, Ireland, Poland, Australia, and Colombia. And, he’s visited some of these countries more than once. Obama can’t be bothered with Israel…

Governor Romney recognizes and values the cherished relationship our nation has with Israel. Our country needs a leader that stands with our allies - and Romney will. Here’s the second new Romney ad ‘Cherished Relationship‘:

Well done!
