Mitt Romney’s campaign kept up the drumbeat of criticism Thursday over President Obama’s “you didn’t build that” gaffe, releasing a scathing web ad in which a New Hampshire business owner says: “President Obama, you’re killing us out here.”
The ad, released Thursday morning, sustains what has been a weeklong theme for the Romney campaign. Echoing the Republican candidate’s recent criticism on the stump, the video hammers the president for suggesting this past Friday that business owners owe their success to government.
The video features Jack Gilchrist, owner of Gilchrist Metal Fabricating Company, and shows him getting ready for work at dawn while Obama’s words play in the background.
