GOP’s Desperate Last Gasp Ad To Get One Black Vote…

GOP's Desperate Last Gasp Ad To Get One Black Vote...

So you may recall that, this past summer, I wrote an item about Willard “Mitt” Romney’s ad that was aimed at potential black voters. Both of them. (HERE)

Public reaction to the ad was pretty much that of laughter, total disbelief and derision. And also, you might recall that, a few months agom polls showed that Romney was getting 0% support from African-Americans. An all time low for any GOP presidential candidate.

So I guess, in a last minute attempt to raise that 0% to a more comfortable .05%, a GOP SuperPAC, Empower Citizen Network, has come up with a new, desperate, last minute TV ad that will, no doubt, convince black folks that the GOP is the way to go.

Basically, it’s because Lincoln freed the slaves.

And if that doesn’t work, then what will? But I do have one question…

Who’s the actor in the ad? I realize it’s really tough to make a living as an actor and sometimes you have to take any gig just to put food on the table. But seriously, did it have to come to this?
