I watched this Mitt Romney campaign ad the other day and would have never picked up on the subtle mistake in it.
Sarah Burris, managing editor of FutureMajority.com, noted that this ad focused on the auto industry in Ohio at the 0:05 mark shows a street scene located in Oklahoma. The former auto dealer talks about how the auto bailout hurt him and his Cleveland-based dealership. But, the viewer sees Oklahoma City. WTF?
Observers attributed the mistake to the fact that the states of Ohio and Oklahoma are next to each other in alphabetical order. Ha ha … well yeah … in a bunch of B-roll files I could see that happening. But, when a candidate makes a detailed case for a specific region of the country, at least show the correct area.
With every passing day, it becomes more clear that Mitt Romney (and his team) are completely out of touch with the American people. They can’t even properly put an ad together to sell people on an area they don’t care about.
Thanks to The Huffington Post for the heads-up on the story.
