Chicago is going up with a two-minute web video that strings together several Mitt Romney comments from the primaries that could come back to haunt him in the general election. This is one piece of an aggressive effort by the reelection campaign to make Romney’s pivot back toward the middle as hard as possible. Called “Memories to last a lifetime,” the reel includes Romney saying “corporations are people” in Iowa, “I like being able to fire people…” in New Hampshire and bragging at CPAC that he was “a severely conservative governor.” Determined to auger the “war on women” narrative, the video highlights Romney calling for the Supreme Court to overturn Roe vs. Wade, promising to “get rid of” Planned Parenthood, expressing support for the Blunt Amendment and telling Mike Hucakbee he backs a Constitutional amendment to begin life at conception. It also includes his calls to let the housing crash run its course and let Detroit go bankrupt. It ends with clips of him opposing bringing the troops home from Iraq, promising to veto the Dream Act and saying that he likes Paul Ryan’s budget. The tagline: “Romney: A severely conservative nominee. Remember that.”
