Romney super PAC attacks Obama 'fantasy land'

Madison, Wisconsin (CNN) - A new mail piece from the pro-Mitt Romney super PAC Restore Our Future envisions a second term "big government fantasy land" for President Obama where "spending, debt and taxes lead to prosperity."

The mailer portrays the president strolling through a fairy tale world populated by snails, shooting stars, mushrooms, flamingos and a man in the moon hovering over fog-shrouded river.

"It's time we get back to reality," the postcard reads.

The mailer, which arrived in Virginia mailboxes last week, was provided to CNN by a Democrat who received it.

    President Obama should hit back at this ad, showing Robmey living high up on a hill on Sesame Street, in his mansion, with the poor, middle class, women,veterans, students, minorities, seniors down below living in squalor.
    The problem with this ad is it is not fantasy, but very close to the real truth.
    Remember, from Robmeys own mouth he said he does not care for the 47% of Americans who are all moochers.

    Mitt, most Americans don't want your kind of reality, which changes every day. When you lie about auto industry workers at GM and Chrysler loing their jobs to China and still repeat them when both GM and Chrysler say you are lying, that's an example of your fantasy. When you have been captured on videotape repeatedly, saying you'll get rid of Roe vs. Wade and defund Planned Parenthood, then pretend you are a moderate on women's rights, that is your fantasy and reality. When, during the candidate debates, you want to defund FEMA, then refuse 14 times this week to answer questions about it, that's your reality.
    When you promise 7 trillion dollars in tax cuts and say you'll pay for them and balance the budget when experts say it's impossible, that's your fantasy.
    When you say Obama "gutted" welfare-to-work rules, and it is a bald-faced lie,that is another of your fantasies.
    Anyone that thinks you and Ryan will do anything besides taking us back to the George Bush days of economic destruction are joining you in total fantasy.
    Obama/Biden 2012.

    So what was the fantasy land that Romney created when he bought food and supplies for people to "donate" to him for a photo op post Sandy disaster.....what a complete fraud. Fits right in with Ryan's pots and pans "re-washing". Shysters all.

    f the Romney ad accused President Obama of being somehow tied to all Jeep production being moved to China, that would be flat-out untrue.

    However, this is what the ad states: “Obama took GM and Chrysler into bankruptcy, and sold Chrysler to Italians who are going to build Jeeps in China. Mitt Romney will fight for every American job.”

    Technically, none of this is inaccurate. President Obama did take GM and Chrysler into bankruptcy, the U.S. Treasury Department ​did ​sell its stake in Chrysler to Fiat, and Fiat is considering adding production jobs in China.

    yes, 4 years in Obamaland has convinced the American people they can do FAR better. Obama and his government control of our lives is NOT what freedom loving people want.

    AND RELEASE ALL THE INFORMATION OF YOUR BENGHAZI DISASTER!! STOP THE COVERUP!! Yes, the 3am call came and Obama decided to go campaign fund raising instead of pick up the phone and save the lives of 4 Americans.

    Mr. Romney lives in a dream world where smaller classrooms only matter to teacher's unions (he forgot that parents like small classrooms so their kids can LEARN-His went to private school. He also thinks women are stupid and need to be guided and prevented from making their own decisions-his Stepford wife probably hasn't made an independent decision in her LIFE and had the nerve to criticize a woman who pointed out that sure, raising kids is hard but not as hard when you have millions at your disposal, nurses, nannys, etc. Guess what, millions of us raised kids without nannys, nurses milllions of dollars AND worked 40-50 hours a week. She's clueless and should have said she was living in a dream world and understood her blessings, not minimize the actual lives of real people. And let's not forget the judgement this man has shown – someone should stick him in a cage strapped to the top a car. Who does that?

    The Koch brothers, Akin, Muirdoch, Limbaugh, Palin, Fox, etc. Who would ever believe a word of what this group of
    losers have to say. It's now all over for little Romney.
