With Mitt Romney releasing his first general election TV ad of the season, I was curious to watch and share his first TV primary ad of the season.
Unfortunately, if you go to Romney's Youtube channel, the ad is "embedding disabled by request" which means you can't put it on your site (screencap above).
It turns out that this is the only video out of 132 on Romney's Youtube channel that you can't embed.
Who knows, but it's his most controversial spot, and features a quote that -- by all accounts -- takes Barack Obama dramatically out of context.
If you remember, the ad shows Obama in the 2008 election, quoting comments from a John McCain adviser that the GOP would lose if the election were about the economy.
But Romney takes the quote, fails to say it was from the McCain camp, applies it to the 2012 election, and attributes it to Obama.
Is it possible that the Romney campaign is still sort of embarrassed by the ad, and doesn't want people to be able to embed it on their sites and bash him for the out-of-context attack?
Very possible, and it's a more subtle way of getting it out of the internet's bloodstream than scrubbing it all together.
