Romney uses Vogue editor’s ad to portray Obama as out of touch
Mitt Romney’s campaign is capitalizing on May’s dismal jobs report by portraying President Obama as out of touch on the economy and focused more on his own job than finding work for America’s unemployed.
Romney and Republicans underlined their message on Monday by seizing on an Obama campaign video featuring Anna Wintour, the well-heeled editor of Vogue and inspiration for “The Devil Wears Prada.”
The video of Wintour sporting a silken Obama 2012 scarf and urging supporters to attend a New York fundraiser next week — released the same day as the meager jobs numbers — is at odds with the “economic exasperation” many voters are feeling, said one top Republican advising Romney’s campaign.
“The biggest challenge that the president has is trying to talk in very glowing terms about an economy that many people feel is going in the wrong direction already,” the Republican said.
