New Obama Ad Simply Replays Romney’s ’47 Percent’ Comments

The Obama campaign released an ad Thursday that simply plays Mitt Romney’s remarks about ’47 percent’ of Americans without any additional commentary. As the ad replays his comments, it shows a series of pictures of American families, workers and veterans — all members of the approximately 47 percent of Americans who did not pay income taxes in 2011.

The Obama campaign told NBC the ad will run in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Nevada, New Hampshire, Ohio and Virginia. This is the campaign’s third ad attacking Romney over the leaked 47 percent comments.
