Romney launches new ad criticizing Clinton

Romney launched a new ad Friday.

WASHINGTON (CNN) - Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney is the latest presidential candidate to criticize New York Sen. Hillary Clinton, releasing a new ad Friday going after the Democratic frontrunner.

"Hillary Clinton wants to run the largest enterprise in the world," Romney says in the ad. "She hasn't run a corner store. She hasn't run a state. She hasn't run a city. She has never run anything. And the idea that she could learn to be president as an internship just doesn't make any sense."

Responding to the ad, Clinton spokesman Isaac Baker said, "Gov. Romney is a very experienced flip-flopper who has taken different positions on nearly every important issue facing the nation."

"Hillary Clinton is a two-term senator who has represented the United States in 82 countries around the world, and has been one of the nation’s leading advocates for children and families for 35 years," Baker added. "Trying to diminish her service isn’t going to help Mr. Romney’s weak and rudderless campaign."

Romney's ad starts airing in New Hampshire Friday.

    Hillary hasn't run anything, but she sure has ridden a lot of coat tails. By the way when she was with Wal-Mart her Husband was Governor of the State where they have the Corporate Office. I wonder why they put her on the board probably because of her "experience" couldn't possibly be another coat tail ride.

    Frankly, I would prefer not to give my vote to Mr. Romney, who raised taxes so horrifically in Massachusetts. He seems to think that the US should be run like a money-making business. Oh, dear! Who will see to the poor? Mr. Romney is using tons of his own money to try to buy the presidency. I would dearly love to see a portion of his, and everybody else's, funds (including funds Bush spends on the war) going to adults and children who are impoverished, cleaning up the environment, and making sure health care is affordable.

    "Hillary Clinton wants to run the largest enterprise in the world"
    Last time I checked Mitt, your Mormon religion WANTS to be the biggest enterprise in the world. They're losing more and more members and potential converts because of all the light that has been shed on your cult in the past 15 years. If you succeed then Joseph Smith's so called "White Horse Prophecy will come true, and the Mormons can rule the world.
