Many conservatives feel that Mitt Romney was not fully supported by the Republican establishment in his 2012 run for the White House. This ad was created by the Republican National Committee for the 2012 campaign but it was not aired, nor was it evidently made publicly available at all until some time after the November elections.
According to an ABC News article, the ad was approved to air in the final weeks of the campaign but now, as the White House cover-up unfolds revealing the true events leading to the death of four Americans in Benghazi, it seems remarkable that Romney and the RNC would not have known how damaging the ad would have been to Obama if the American people had only seen this ad in time.
In retrospect, it seems prudent now to ask, was this simply an error in judgement, or was someone in the RNC helping Obama? Or is it possible that Romney was forced to take a dive as election day approached, and if so, what about John McCain seeming to give up near the end of the 2008 presidential election?
