Most Offensive Romney Commercial

I'm sorry, but losing a child is incredibly horrendous.  I speak from experience.

Losing a child, and letting Mitt Romney parlay your loss into a testimonial on national television is perhaps the lowest degradation to the memory of a loved one that I can think of.

This ad, wherein the elderly couple mourns the death of their son, while extolling the virtue of Mitt Romney, is, without question in my mind, one of the worst things I've ever been exposed to in my life.  Tasteless?  Check. 

I'm sorry, but after watching this ad numerous times, I have no sympathy for these parents or their loss.  I'm disgusted by them.

That this campaign ad is airing at all has the stench of desperation attached to it.  Romney's losing.  Thank God.

Straight to the point and well written! Why can't everyone else be like this?

Everyone else has an agenda, I guess.

I saw the commercial and wondered if they even lost a child or were actors.

Yeah - I wonder if they are actors, too. It just seems horrible to exploit a death in one's family for a political reason.
