Just under a year before the 2012 presidential election and before Republican primary voters have chosen who the party's nominee will be, the Democratic National Committee has launched an ad attacking GOP front runner Mitt Romney.
The ad, called "Trapped" paints the former Massachusett's Governor as a flip-flopper. The slickly done 30-second ad is done in the style of a Hollywood film trailer and urges viewers to go online and view a nearly 5-minute pice title "MittvMitt.com: The story of two men trapped in one body."
Th ad and internet video show Romney changing his position on a number of issues over the years from president Barack Obama's health care reform package to abortion to the Reagan presidency.
On abortion Romney is shown at one moment saying, "I will preserve and protect a woman's right to choose.' he is then shown saying, "The right next step is to see Roe v. Wade overturned."
In a conference call Monday promoting the ad and the video, Democratic Party of Virginia chairman Brian Moran said it's a "terrific ad," because it's in Romney's own words.
"We need only to let him speak for himself, and the video the DNC released this morning does exactly that," Moran said. "So it's time the American people hear what Mitt Romney truely believes in and what he stands for. They deserve a leader who doesn't drift with the winds of politics and is dedicated fighting for the middle class."
