The Benghazi Campaign Ad That Never Ran

This leaves us more than a little speechless. Here is a campaign ad that the RNC created for the final days of the 2012 election.

However, the ad was spiked by the Romney campaign, because …

Wait for it …

Romney thought the election should be purely about the economy, and nothing else.

We talked about this fallacy repeatedly throughout 2011 and 2012 (for example, here and here). We said that it would snatch political defeat from the jaws of victory, and would ensure Obama another 4 years in office.

Sadly, we were right.

This ad should have been run nonstop 24/7, for the final two weeks before the election. As it stands, spiking the ad was one of the many missteps of the Romney campaign.

Oddly, while Romney was willing to go after his GOP opponents with brass knuckles to the crotch (usually administered through surrogates), he was unwilling to go after the Democrats with the same zeal.

So tell me, why was he a good candidate again?

  1. Romney ran the same campaign that McCain ran, with the same results.
