New Fla ad ties Romney to "big oil"



The pro-Barack Obama SuperPAC Priorities USA plans to start airing this spot in Florida, Colorado, Iowa, Michigan, New Mexico, Nevada, Ohio and Virginia. It's a response to an ad by the American Energy Alliance attacking Obama over gas prices. Here's the script for the Priorities ad:

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 two hundred million to help him.
And Mitt Romney’s pledged to protect their record profits – and their billions in special tax breaks too.
These guys all profit.  You pay the price.
Priorities USA Action is responsible for the content of this advertising
