Mitt clinches nomination: Democratic National Committee throws kitchen sink at him in wry video

| No Comments

WASHINGTON--Mitt Romney clinched the GOP presidential nomination on Tuesday with the Texas primary putting him over--a milestone marked by the Democratic National Committee with a video slamming Romney--using his own words and those of his former rivals. The music is a light-hearted whistle, the visuals, close up of Face Book entries of news stories about Romney the DNC wanted to highlight. The DNC has a light touch with a tough message, "Mitt Romney, Little to Like."

React from the Romney campaign:

"This is another desperate attack from President Obama because he has no positive record to run on. Mitt Romney created more jobs in the state of Massachusetts than President Obama has for the entire nation. President Obama has failed to meet his own goal of 6% unemployment and has a net negative record on job creation. We're happy to compare the 4.7% unemployment rate Mitt Romney was able to accomplish. If President Obama had even half the job creation record of Mitt Romney, then he would be running on it." -Andrea Saul, Romney Campaign Spokesperson
