Romney Ads Attack McCain, Huckabee
Mitt Romney is out with a new ad in New Hampshire attacking John McCain. As eerie, dissonant music sets the tone of the spot, an announcer asks whether McCain is "the right Republican" for the future. McCain, the announcer says, "opposes repeal of the death tax and voted against the Bush tax cuts -- twice ... pushed to let every illegal immigrant to stay here permanently, even voted to allow illegals to collect Social Security."
And Romney? He "cut taxes and spending as governor. He opposes amnesty for illegals," the ad says. It concludes, "Mitt Romney, John McCain -- there is a difference."
Romney has also launched an ad attacking Mike Huckabee. As mug shots of Romney and Huckabee appear side-by-side, a female announcer softly says, "two good men." Then a male announcer quickly chimes in and asks, "but who is ready to make tough decisions?"
The female announcer says Huckabee "grew a six billion dollar government into a 16 billion dollar government," backed in-state tuition benefits for illegal immigrants, and handed down pardons or commutations for a thousand people, "including 12 convicted murderers."
Meanwhile, Romney, the male announcer says, "held spending down below inflation," cut taxes, and offered "zero pardons." The difference between the two candidates? -- "strong leadership."
