New Santorum TV ad morphs Obama into Romney

 

Down in the polls to Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum is up with tough new TV ad in Wisconsin, which shows President Obama's face morphing into Romney's.

The script:

“I’m Rick Santorum and I approve this message.

Female narrator: "What if I told you this man’s big government mandated healthcare included $50 abortions and killed thousands of jobs?

Would you ever vote for him? What if I told you he supported radical environmental job killing cap and trade and the Wall Street bailouts?

And what if I told you he dramatically raised taxes and stuck taxpayers with a $1 billion shortfall? 

One more thing: What if I told you the man I’m talking about isn’t him?

It’s him.

*** UPDATE *** The Romney campaign issues this response: “Rick Santorum is attacking pollsters, attacking reporters and attacking Mitt Romney. It is sad to see him completely lose his bearings and revert to patently false claims. Senator Santorum is at a point of desperation that he will say or do anything. It is pretty clear that he is lashing out at everyone around him in order to prop up his sinking campaign.”
