Laughing at Mitt Romney O Day - August 10 2012-Super Pac/Olympics and Randy Travis Edition

Referring to the superpac ad

Of course, Presidential campaigns are not responsible for the content of superpac ads- Mitt Romney has said so himself, even though there was one instance where it clearly looked like he was coordinating with the Superpac run by Karl Rover.

Remember this?

WASHINGTON -- Karl Rove was the featured speaker at a previously unreported luncheon held just outside the Mitt Romney campaign's recent retreat for high-dollar donors, according to three Republican fundraisers who attended the event.

Rove's luncheon speech did not appear on the retreat's official agenda because Romney's campaign didn't host it. Instead, the event was hosted by Solamere Capital, a private equity firm founded by Tagg Romney, the candidate's eldest son, and Spencer Zwick, the Romney campaign's chief fundraiser who is often described as Romney's "sixth son."

Rove's speech was delivered on June 22, the Friday of the retreat weekend, to about 200 wealthy guests, including quite a few money harvesters for the Romney campaign, according to GOP sources who attended but requested anonymity in order to speak freely.

If Mitt Romney is truly concerned about truthfulness, seems to me he needs to clean up his own yard, first, including ads that go out UNDER HIS OWN NAME, not Superpacs, that are blatant lies, like how he edited the You ddn't build that quote by President Obama or his most recent welfare reform  ad that has been panned as blatant lies.

Mitt Ronmey-Olympic Welfare Queen

Fact: While running the 2002 Olympic Games, Mitt Romney steered millions of dollars in Olympic contracts to Bain Capital subsidiaries that he owned, including Sealy Mattress, Domino's Pizza, and Marriott Hotels.

Fact: Romney offered Office Depot a contract buy-out and a $1 million payoff so that he could give their Olympic contract to Staples, a Bain-owned company.

Fact: Romney took his Olympic profits and hid them overseas in the Cayman Islands and Swiss bank accounts to avoid paying taxes on them. He won't even release his records from running the 2002 Olympics to show us exactly how much he made off the Games.

Fact: Mitt Romney asked a Wells Fargo and Co. executive to serve as the Mayor of Olympic Village.

Incidentally, here is an ad by Moveon that is NOT an Obama ad
