        That being said... I would rate it about average among other ads that have been coming out lately.

          Thank you for fixing the link!
          I saw it on "Real Time with Bill Maher."

          It did make me wonder, however, WHEN the Mormon issue is going to be put on the table.

            I expect it to show up in some PAC ads, but I don't expect it to be an issue coming from Obama's campaign... I don't think Obama wants to bring up Mormonism, when Romney has specifically said that Wright is off the table.

              Wright is 4+ years ago.
              Why would he be back on the table in 2012?
              Nevermind.
              I guess for the same reasons that Ayres and birth certificate and college grades are still being thrown out there.

                Mitt's taxes were 3-8 years ago smile

                I think it is because religion really doesn't matter that much, assuming it isn't extremist.

                LDS isn't extremist...

                What would you like to see come up about his religion?

                In all honesty, Romney spoke to the Mormon issue four years ago as well.  Is it really necessary for him to address it again?

                And, come on?  A presidential candidate who doesn't drink beer, smoke cigarettes, ingest caffeine shouldn't have to answer for it.  We never make the ones who DO answer for it to anyone.

                Silly business if you ask me, MM.

            Aren't most of the people that would care one way or the other about Mitt being Mormon Republicans?  If so, it seems like the time to bring that up as an issue is past now that he has the nomination.

            Other than that, it looked more like a beer ad than a political attack ad to me...

              Yes. Evangelical Christians might care about Romney's religion.
              However, he's passing the social conservative test with his (current) stances, so I guess that's what they really care about.

              It's tongue-in-cheek. Doubt it will be playing in any swing states.

    After what the Romney campaign, the Tea Party and the other extremists have put in their ads, it is amazing how they can whine when President Obama and/or his supporters bite back.

    Do they think that we have forgotten about the never ending stream of lies, libel, slander, death threats, racism, disrespect and despicable content they have been cranking out since 2008?

    Well, we haven't. It is time that every last one of their flaws and faults are exposed for the whole world to see and hear. If they can't stand the heat...they can get out of the kitchen, but to act like whining bullies is disgusting.
