Obama Super-PAC Uses Leaked Videos to Bash Romney

Priorities USA Action, the super-PAC supporting President Obama, is out with a new video hammering GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney for the divisive remarks he made at a Florida fundraiser as revealed by Mother Jones.

The Priorities ad opens with the image of a fancy home and hits Romney for, behind closed doors, dismissing 47 percent of American voters as “victims” who are “dependent upon government.” The ad then cuts to a normal house and says: “Behind these doors, middle-class families struggle, and Romney will make things even tougher.”

The ad goes on to show a clip of the leaked video, with Romney saying of the 47 percenters: “I’ll never convince them that they should take personal responsibility.” To which the ad’s narrator replies: “And Mitt Romney will never convince us he’s on our side.”
