From Talking Points Memo (of course Mitt is friends with a lefty site):
After a bitter primary fight in 2008, Mitt Romney is coming to Arizona Sen. John McCain's (R-AZ) defense.
After reports surfaced that McCain primary challenger Kelli Ward was re-using a 2008 Romney attack ad against McCain as her own, Romney's ghost campaign sent a cease and desist letter demanding Ward take down her Facebook ad immediately.
"Romney for President has not authorized your use of its protected material," the letter, which was provided to TPM reads. "Your campaign has engaged in blatant infringement of RFP's protected work and must cease and desist immediately."
The ad's identical resemblance to Romney's 2008 ad was first picked up by the Arizona Republic, which noted that the only thing difference between Ward's and Romney's ads was the fact Ward appeared at the end. Ward's campaign did not dispute the similarities, telling the Arizona Republic that "Mitt Romney got it right."
"If the shoe fits, wear it. The substance is still the same. Some things never change," Stephen Sebastian, Ward's spokesman, told the Arizona Republic.
The ad paints McCain as an ally of Hillary Clinton on everything from a gas tax to "blocking conservative judges."How about everyone joins me in a chorus of "Up yours, Mitt"?
The ad in question is here.
Earlier this year, instead of helping the presumptive nominee (after Nevada, the race was over), Mitt tried to sabotage Trump.
Maybe Mitt was a Democratic Party plant. That would explain Mitt's blowing the 2012 campaign.
