Obama Attacks Romney With Second 47 Percent Ad

September 25, 2012 12:53 p.m.

The Obama campaign launched its second ad attacking Mitt Romney for his 47 percent comments on Tuesday. 

“When Mitt Romney dismissed 47 percent of Americans for not pulling their weight, he attacked millions of hard working people,” the narrator says in the ad. “They pay social security taxes, state taxes, local taxes, gas, sales and property taxes.”

The narrator then compares them to Romney: “Romney paid just 14 percent in taxes last year on over 13 million in income. Almost all from investments.”

“Instead of attacking folks who work for a living,” the narrator concludes. “Shouldn’t we stand up for them?” 

The ad is airing in New Hampshire, Virginia, North Carolina, Florida, Ohio, Iowa, Colorado and Nevada.
