Obama Campaign Releases Record Number of Attack Ads Following Debate

In the weekend following President Barack Obama’s terrible debate performance, the Obama campaign released 18 videos on their YouTube channel, 10 of which are attack ads against Mitt Romney, in an effort to rally their campaign back to success.

This extreme meltdown of Obama advertising focused especially on the debate, calling Romney “Dishonest,” “Misleading,” Untrustworthy,” and a, “Liar.” Most of them have specially selected footage from the debate. One even talks about, “Romney’s debate performance,” calling it “mostly false.”

Well, when your candidate swings and completely misses in a disaster of a debate, there is not much left to do but relentlessly try to draw attention away from the extent of the failure.

Clearly, the Obama campaign is grasping at straws, trying to come up with a reason why Obama couldn’t pull it together on Wednesday.

“After the debate Romney didn’t tell the American people the truth,” one ad claims. “Because his real plans would hurt the middle class.”

“Mitt Romney claims he wants more teachers. Not true,” another ad says. “He has been saying for months that he doesn’t want more teachers. If we can’t trust him on the debate stage, how can we trust him in the oval office?”

Keep the ads coming, Obama, but your debate performance speaks for itself.

Check out the most desperate one where the Obama campaign says that Romney misled the American people about Obama’s green energy record. Really, you’re going to defend Solyndra?:

    Amazingly enough Obama never bothered to correct Mitt Romney on these so called “lies” during the debate for fear that Mitt Romney would debunk Obama’s accusations on live TV in front of the American people. Instead, he chooses to run ads after the debate attacking Mitt Romney and calling him a liar making it impossible for Mitt Romney to call him out on his persistent lies. He is doing exactly what Mitt Romney accused him of during the debate. Incessantly repeating these lies in hopes that the American people will believe them if they hear them enough times. Speaks volumes about Barack Obama!

    Oh right…………………………………………it was the altitude!
