Romney Bases New Attack Ad Against Obama on 2008 Obama Ad Against McCain

Call it a sly homage.

Mitt Romney's new TV ad against President Obama's "the private sector's doing fine" remarks…

…deliberately copies style, tone, and even font from then-Senator Obama's 2008 ad against Sen. John McCain's remarks that "the fundamentals of our economy are strong."
