Priorities USA Action

"Romney's Big Oil Trail" +
:30 ad run starting April 2, 2012 on TV and online in CO, FL, IA, MI, NM, NV, OH and VA.

[Music] Male Announcer: Who's behind this ad smearing President Obama?

Big Oil.  That's who.

The money they make from high gas prices is going right into Mitt Romney's campaign.

Big oil executives have pledged 200 million to help him.

And Romney's pledged to protect their record profits, and their billions in special tax breaks too. 

These guys all profit.  You pay the price.

Notes: According to the press release, this ad aims

"...to expose the true motivations of big oil’s attacks on President Obama—to elect Mitt Romney who stands to protect big oil’s profits at the expense of middle class Americans. 

“While President Obama is taking serious action to make America less dependent on dirty and dangerous sources of Middle East oil and create clean energy jobs here at home, Mitt Romney and the oil companies bankrolling his campaign are profiting from high gas prices politically and financially,” said Paul Begala, Senior Advisor for Priorities USA Action. “How can the American people trust Governor Romney to bring down gas prices when he and his biggest backers benefit so much from gas prices being so high?”
