Breaking News: The Obama campaign has just hired Republican presidential primary frontrunner Mitt Romney to write and produce TV commercials for the Obama 2012 advertising effort.
Romney, who was found standing this morning in deep doo-doo, commented. “It’s an honor. Wait a second – ”
In applying for the job, Romney submitted this clip, which he cut this morning on CNN.
A senior Obama campaign official said Romney was hired immediately after campaign aides reviewed the video.
“‘I’m not concerned about the very poor?’ This is priceless material,” the Obama official said. “We’re going to run this again and again and again and again.”
Another Obama spokesman confirmed the new hire.
“We really feel that Mitt Romney brings perspectives to the Obama organization that we could never develop on our own,” he said. “Mitt has shown he has the skills and commitment to perform here at a very high level, and we look forward to having him do great things for the Obama campaign.”
