President Obama recently indicated that if he wins a second term he would appoint a Secretary of Business. For anyone who understands the legitimate roles that government and the free markets have in our republic, the comment was one which should be enough to demonstrate to them that this President truly is a socialist. And while Mitt Romney has avoided the use of such descriptions of the President, he did not let the President’s ignorant idea go unanswered. On Thursday he released a sharp 30 second ad that hammered President Obama for his government-centric vision. (see ad below)
The ad may not play well with President Obama’s hand-out loving, government control seeking, dim-witted, liberal base but there is no need for it to. Mitt Romney was right when he once told a group of campaign donors that his campaign will never be able to convince those people that he is the better candidate for them or the nation. But what this ad does do is appeal to Romney’s base, the group of voters who in these closing days of the campaign he must make sure are energized to come out and vote for him and against the President. This ad does that. It gives freedom loving people who want less government control, another example of just how antithetical Barack Obama is to that goal. But more important than even Romney’s base, are the independent voters whom this ad appeals to.
Independent voters tend to be open to good government but apprehensive about more government. They tend to be more interested in government doing what it is suppose to do properly, than giving government more things to do incorrectly. Romney’s new ad, entitled “Secretary of Business” helps drive home the point that Barack Obama does not share that view with them.
In addition to the new ad, Romney has also taken that message to the campaign trail where today in Roanoke, Va, Romney told the audience;
“We don’t need a Secretary of Business to understand business, we need a President who understands business “.
He added “and I do”.
