“Easy Answer,” Hard Ad

Amazing to think about what would have happened if this ad had been run in Iowa for all of December with real money behind it. Boston will surely note that Santorum is launching this spot the very day he spent the morning going after Romney and his Super PAC for their campaign efforts. There are more hot-button issues packed in here than there are Romney sons. The unflattering photographs of Obama and Romney are classics of the genre. And, with the exception of the Kennedy line, the claims are rock-solid factual. Will we see some of these same lines in robo-calls, emails and radio spots? As Sarah Palin, who would share some of the ad's sentiments, would say, you betcha.

FIRST ON THE PAGE: New Santorum South Carolina TV spot finally goes where many conservatives (and commentators) expected Romney rivals to go.

Hits on Palmetto State TV stations Tuesday.

The script:

Obama supported the Wall Street bailouts… So did Romney.

Obama gave us radical Obamacare… that was based on Romneycare.

Obama’s a liberal on social issues.

Romney once bragged he’s even more liberal than Ted Kennedy on social issues.

Why would we ever vote for someone who is just like Obama?

When we can unite around Rick Santorum. And beat Obama.

Watch it above.
