Obama Campaign Releases Ad Hinting Romney is a "Felon"

It was just last month that Obama Campaign Manager Stephanie Cutter claimed that Mitt Romney is either a liar or a felon, insisting that he misrepresented his time spent at Bain Capital.  Upon hearing the accusations, the Romney campaign insisted that the President issue an apology for the remarks.

Instead, the campaign has doubled down on the outrageous accusation, running an ad that attacks Romney for not releasing more tax returns, at one point flashing the words “felons” and “tax records” on the screen.

The Weekly Standard reports:

The latest web ad from Barack Obama’s campaign goes after Mitt Romney for not releasing more tax returns than he already has. The ad, titled “Mitt Romney’s Tax Returns: When Will He Come Clean?,” at one point flashes two words onscreen, “FELONS” and “TAX RECORDS.”

The words, “FELONS” and “TAX RECORDS,” are displayed onscreen for at least six seconds, so the Obama campaign wants to make sure its viewers see the words.

Given the title of the ad–and the subject–the ad wants viewers to consider that Mitt Romney might not be releasing more tax returns because, the Obama campaign is suggesting, he might be a felon. 

Here’s the video…

Is there ever a point where the people surrounding Obama recognize their own epic levels of hypocrisy?  College transcripts, healthcare reform developed behind closed doors, executive privilege to cover up Fast and Furious documents, interfering in voter intimidation prosecutions…  Where are the real felons in this campaign?
