The new ad by American Bridge PAC makes a bizarrely hilarious association between the GOP candidate and the recipient of the most infamous not-guilty verdict in U.S. judicial history.
Now that most of the GOP candidates have officially shot themselves in the foot, the Democrats have begun to focus the majority of their attention on Mitt Romney. Although we are still months away from finding out which GOP candidate will challenge Barack Obama for a spot in the White House, Romney has been prematurely identified as Obama’s main competition. So get the popcorn and let the entertaining defamation advertisements begin.
In the most recent anti-Romney ad, the American Bridge PAC focused on Romney’s statement that unlike Newt Gingrich he’s not a career politician. Romney did spend a lot of his adult life in the private sector, but to say he hasn’t made a career out of politics is far from the truth. The new ad showcases this by pointing out that he began running for Senate way back in 1994, meaning he’s been working in politics for over 17 years.
The majority of the video is spent flashing back to the major events in 1994, like the rise of the internet and O.J. Simpson’s surreal wild ride in the white Ford Bronco. They show Romney’s press conference to announce his candidacy for U.S. Senate, then cut to O.J.’s infamous chase with L.A. police and cut back to a Romney interview of him talking about driving up the highway with his wife and kid.
It’s a bizarre juxtaposition that makes very little sense, but at the same time it’s downright hilarious. Remember everyone, don’t vote for Mitt Romney, because he began his political career the same year O.J. most likely killed his wife.
