New Romney ad presses Obama-disappointment theme

posted at 10:01 am on October 6, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

What’s the best way to capitalize on an opponent’s remarkably disappointing performance in a televised debate?  Remind people that he has disappointed them in more ways that just rhetorically.  Team Romney takes advantage of the emerging consensus to present “Melanie,” a small-business owner who supported Barack Obama in 2008 but has come to regret it.  For an added bonus, Melanie McNamara argues that women with families ought to be supporting Mitt Romney rather than gender-warrior Obama in order to maximize the opportunities their children will have in the future:

“I’m disappointed in Barack Obama as my president.  Because he promised to bring us all together and we’re all going to be able to prosper. I don’t see the prospering.  In 2008, I voted for Barack Obama. He doesn’t have my vote this time.

“Why Mitt Romney? Being a woman, you think about your children and you think about their future. And what I want to think about is a future that has jobs. That our economy’s growing again. That’s important to women and it’s important to me.”

Whether this is planned timing or serendipity, it works well with the post-debate dynamic.  Many voters who finally began paying attention with the start of the debate season had to be shocked at Obama’s performance.  After having been built up as such a powerful orator and perhaps the smartest man ever to hold the office, his mauling at the hands of Mitt Romney has to have many of those re-evaluating both of those qualities.  And without that edge, it will be impossible for voters to easily accept the idea that Obama is leading them out of a lengthy economic stagnation rather than extending it through his own incompetence.

After all, when you’ve lost the New Yorker

… I’d say that the disillusionment is nearly total.

It’s hilarious everyone is all excited about ads that will hardly run (if ever) since the Romney campaign is broke or something. Or maybe they’re saving their money for some super-duper, unbelievably awesome, “shock and awe” ad blitzkrieg, that will happen sometime, somewhere…

gumbyandpokey on October 6, 2012 at 10:08 AM

Good ad, though I still haven’t forgiven those idiots who voted for Obama last time for what they’ve inflicted on us all.

Obama is beaten. Romney is like the Karate Kid now…..he needs to deliver the final blow. Romney was better prepared both by virtue of a great prep team, and also by a lifetime of experience that Obama can’t match. It is no surprise that the Obama campaign is resorting to cheap leg sweeps against Romney—they know they are beaten and they are doing it to themseles.

I love the New Yorker cover. I am stunned that it was used. **stunned**

I guess I don’t really understand the New Yorker – are there some right-wing moles working there?

Remember, just before the 2008 election they ran the “Obama fist-bump” cover. In fact, it looks like the same artist’s work, doesn’t it?

Obama peaked in 2008. He was a one hit wonder. On Wednesday night, all that he could do was try to resell us his same first hit song. We had heard it all before. There was nothing new. No leadership, no plan, no creative assessment, no connection, no artistry, no statesmanship, nothing.

What is nearly forgotten about that issue of the New Yorker is that the article within on Obama’s political past was a stinging indictment of his character – yet no one seemed to give it any heed.

I know that it cemented my opinion of him as a highly dangerous leftist radical.

Now if we can put this current cover together with the article from 2008 we might have something.

I agree. After the debate, this is a pretty wicked ad. I’m sure Team Romney had it in the pipeline at some point, but the debate results just made it much too fortuitous NOT to put out right now. Remember the primaries, folks…Romney always came out in the final moments to deliver his crushing blows. As long as he can even hold his own in the final two debates, people will remember them all as a total victory for Romney (after his first debate performance). And as long as Ryan crushes Biden this week (a VERY likely outcome, neh?) we should have this locked up for the undecideds. :)

You think you know a lot. Here’s a serious question for you…

Please tell me where the hundreds of millions of dollars (according to the Romney campaign) went? What happened to the financial advantage we were told they had when they were outraising Obama during the summer? With that kind of money rolling in, how could they not have enough to run ads on cable tv? We were told they could match the Dems ad-for-ad this time and what a difference it would make. Obama even ran desperate fundraising appeals (wedding registry) because of the money that Romney was pulling in?

WHAT HAPPENED TO ALL THE MONEY?????

WHERE ARE THE ADS?????

Clint Eastwood really set the stage, he really did.

I hope that the Smithsonian gets a hold of the chair that Clint used that night and puts it on display.

My theory is that the MSM can see the writing on the wall, and so they’re trying to suck-up to Romney now in the hope that it will buy them more favorable access when he steps in. They’re whores. And no thinking person in the US is going to believe that they’ve suddenly turned a corner. The MSM is a total disgrace.

Even they are starting to see the writing on the wall. Yesterday’s job numbers did worse than falling flat. They hurt his chances because the media could not avoid reporting that they were “bombarded” by people claiming they were fake and THAT became the real story yesterday.

This is quite frustrating. Why does Romney allow this when he is worth a quadrillion dollars? Romney should loan his campaign $50 million to $100 million to spend now while the campaign cash comes in. If he becomes President, he will easily be able to get rid of that campaign debt. I don’t get it. They should be outspending Obama this month. There is no excuses for this.

From the WSJ article you posted:

For every five commercials Mitt Romney and his allies ran here in this vital swing state in the last two weeks of September,

In Florida, the disparity was greater. The number of pro-Obama ads outnumbered pro-Romney ads by almost 50 percent

The story was the same in most of most of the other battlegrounds. In Ohio and in Iowa, in Norfolk, Va., and on the Boston stations that feed New Hampshire, Mr. Obama out-advertised his rival after the parties’ nominating conventions

PS. When people say things like “every single” or “everyone agrees that..” it really raises a red flag for me. Especially when they don’t even bother to like to any source for said “fact.”

it is true that advertising wise obama is spending more money. But after the debate most of the money spent on ads accusing Mitt of being heartles rich guy have been dispelled.

the Obama campaigns attempt to “define” Romney has failed now that Romney has defined Romney.

gerrym51 on October 6, 2012 at 10:43 AM

After having been built up as such a powerful orator and perhaps the smartest man ever to hold the office, his mauling at the hands of Mitt Romney has to have many of those re-evaluating both of those qualities.

Obama is only powerful in the rhetorical context of the singular, unopposed speech. It’s no wonder that he holds few to no press conferences and did so poorly on Wednesday. He’s a very poor listener. At one point on Wednesday, Romney hammered Obama on his $5trillion claim and essentially asked for an answer, IIRC, and Obama merely turned to Lehrer and it was like a “talking points -ON” switch was flipped on his back. I was left wondering, “where the F**k did that come from?” It was as if Obama was disembodied and somewhere else and he switched into, “I’m the only one on this stage” mode.

I sure hope that Ms. McNamara turns out to be for real. After the Obama ad featuring “Republican women” who have turned to his side, where we were all shocked, shocked to learn most of them were NOT Republican women at all, you know that Team Lightbringer is going to try and turn the tables.

Now, there’s no way to prove who she voted for in 2008, and she didn’t say that she was a converted Democrat, but if there are contribution records in her name, those are still in play for a counterattack, unless she is telling the truth that she supported Obama in 2008.

“it is true that advertising wise obama is spending more money”

But WHY do they have more money when Romney and the GOP spent the summer/early fall bragging about the record fundraising totals they were bringing in?

They were outraising team Obama and Obama is running 3 ads to every 1 Romney ad in Ohio. It makes no sense.

Gumby once again I have proven you are liar….yet you avoid that fact.

Maher thinks that all his money donated to the Choomster isn’t going to ads, it’s going to weed. Uh oh.

“Gumby once again I have proven you are liar….yet you avoid that fact.”

Paul Ryan himself says they’re being outspent 3-1 in Ohio. Deal with it.

As Jonah Goldberg wrote yesterday:

The Irish have a saying: “Hunger makes the best sauce.” And it’s true. If you’re hungry enough, roadkill will make for a king’s feast. Liberals were so hungry for someone like Obama, he seemed like so much more than he really was.

And now, they see he wasn’t even roadkill, but an inedible chair.

Poll: Romney up four points since Wednesday, now leads Obama by two
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Saturday shows Mitt Romney attracting support from 49% of voters nationwide, while President Obama earns the vote from 47%. Two percent (2%) prefer some other candidate, and two percent (2%) are undecided.

Gumby when it comes to advice about how to spend money please save your talk for the left.

Now tell us about Walker…..

I’m sorry, he sucked,” said Maher last night. “He looked tired. He had trouble getting his answers out. Looks like he took me million and spent it all on weed!”

AGH, can someone tell me how to block this troll?? Every thread I start reading gets hijacked by this moron.

It was as if Obama was disembodied and somewhere else and he switched into, “I’m the only one on this stage” mode.

ted c on October 6, 2012 at 10:44 AM

Yup, I noticed that as well, kind of like Obama turned into a Disney Audio-Animatronic, not an actual living breathing human being, just a MP3 playback machine.

So CW pitifully tries to dodge the money question…

CW, how about the deal I’ve proposed to Del.

Romney wins, and I leave the site. Obama wins and you leave.

Sounds fair. Let’s see if you have the courage of your convictions.

gumbyandpokey on October 6, 2012 at 10:49 AM

Gumby I got to go but you have once again shown to be the liar and joke you are. You avoid answering questions about Walker. You’re a joke.

CW on October 6, 2012 at 10:49 AM

We tried to tell ya Melanie.
