Obama ad – can you name all of Romney’s tax rises in 30 seconds?

Obama has released a new ad that attacks Romney for raising taxes during his time as Governor of Massachusetts.

The extreme levity of the tone of this ad makes the attack quite grating.

It reminds me of a time when I first dropped my lunch tray in the dinning room at school the most annoying little brat in the class tried to lead the piss-taking. To my surprise and delight, everyone laughed at his eagerness to poke fun at me, rather than at my poor platter management.

At that exact moment I realised, as I cleared my plate of Pasta King spaghetti off the lino flooring, you can’t be really smug and annoying yourself and then expect others to follow you in mocking someone else.
