I’m just tired of these either/or ads. Yes, Romney is a douche, we know that. I agree that if his message is inconsistent, we should point it out. If he’s just spouting off crap to get elected (which I believe he is), then that is what should be the focus of the ads.
What I don’t agree with in this spot is the correlation that having offshore accounts, or outsourcing, or utilizing other foreign resources is somehow un-American. I don’t agree that those are things Romney needs to apologize for, nor things we as Americans should hold against him.
Now obviously many Americans don’t feel the same way, which is why I believe Romney won’t release his tax records (and why McCain couldn’t choose him for VP in 2008), but I just don’t think it’s relevant to his ability to potentially lead the country.
BUT! If Romney also perceives these actions, accounts, and other foreign resources as less than American, then yes, he needs to be held accountable for not living up to his own standards.
