Campaign 2012

Obama Web Ad Hits Romney on Gay Marriage

One day after his shift in position on same sex marriage was announced, President Obama's campaign is out with a new web ad attacking Mitt Romney on the issue, entitled “Mitt Romney: Backwards on Equality.”

The ad runs Obama’s statement made this week to ABC that “same sex couples should be able to get married,” then runs Romney’s quote from Wednesday in which he said: “I do not favor marriage between people of the same gender, and I don’t favor civil unions, if they’re identical to marriage, other than by name .”


The ad then runs text asking, “What rights would Romney deny?" It then runs this text: “Adopting children together,” followed by “Emergency medical decisions for partners.”

Then, it twists the knife: “Even President Bush supported civil unions.”
