This ad by the Obama campaign against Romney is running in nine swing states(Colorado, Florida, Iowa, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia) and is probably the most brutal thus far of this campaign season. It combines continuous attacks on Romney’s offshore accounts and his time at Bain Capital over a backdrop of Romney mangling “America The Beautiful” at a campaign stop.
The ad is already receiving numerous praises on Facebook from Obama supporters proclaiming that “it’s about time” Democrats (and President Obama) learned to play hardball.

I'm Kali Holloway and I'm Digging for Stories Where the Corporate Media Doesn't Go
Hi AlterNet Readers,
I’m Kali, AlterNet investigative reporter. Trolls have made stalking, harassment and intimidation an everyday hazard of going online. I’ve spent weeks in the troll cesspools to understand how they operate and why.
Trolls target women, people of color, LGBT folks, Jews and Muslims. And they love Donald Trump.
Trump’s racism, misogyny and hatred has united neo-Nazis and women-haters with the goal of getting him elected and spreading their toxic ideas.
With backing from supporters like you, I have the freedom to go deep into dark topics like this one -- and expose things we all should know.
We need to raise $15,000 in the next two weeks to hit our goal and continue this necessary work, both mine and the rest of our team.
