Mitt Romney Ad: "Day One, Part Two"



Much of my previous commentary again applies to this ad.

The tone is positive -- which is good. Enough of the 'Obama is not one of us' type of attack (*cough* Trump *cough*).

But...
Day one: President Romney announces deficit reductions, ending the Obama era of big government, helping secure our kids' futures.
Really? Has it really been the OBAMA era of big government?

Look, I'm not saying that the President is a small government conservative. He's not. Quite the contrary. But, you cannot pin 100% of the blame for 'big government' on him. Many of President Obama's predecessors were big spenders -- Democrats and Republicans alike.

Please don't misunderstand, I'm not defending runaway spending and big government mentality. I don't like how much the government has grown in its scope over the past 50 years. But it is unfair to call it the "Obama era of big government". Rather, I would suggest the "Carter-Reagan-Bush-Clinton-Bush-Obama era".

Just sayin'.
