Desperate Mitt Romney to Michigan: Vote for Me, I was Born Here

| by Mark Berman Opposing Views

Mitt Romney was an easy winner of the Michigan primary in 2008, and he assumed he would win it again in 2012; after all, he was born there and his dad was a popular governor way back when. But now with a week to go before the primary, Romney finds himself trailing Rick Santorum. A loss would be embarrassing at best, devastating to his candidacy at worst, proving that if he cannot win his home state, he certainly cannot beat President Obama. So Romney has come up with an ad that basically says, "Please vote for me because I was born here. Please."
