Restore Our Future is going up with an ad featuring Olympic athletes touting how Mitt Romney turned around the 2002 Olympic games.
“Mitt Romney brought a huge sense of hope,” says famed figure skater Kristi Yamaguchi in the ad. Yamaguchi won a gold medal in the 1992 and was an ambassador for the 2002 games. She also donated the maximum to Romney’s 2008 and 2012 presidential campaigns.
Some folks are thrilled that former Mass. Governor Mitt Romney’s campaign is bringing up his leadership in rescuing the 2002 Salt Lake City Winter Olympic Games:
And some folks have very nice things to say about Yamaguchi:
On the other hand, there is, of course, some disappointment:
Kristi Yamaguchi is no longer one of my favorite Olympians or figure skaters. DONE WITH YOU, MA'AM!—

And then … there’s the hate:
Why would Kristi Yamaguchi support Romney? That's stupid!—

Plus a little bonus hate for Mitt. You can always count on liberals for the lagniappe:
Kristi Yamaguchi appears in pro-Romney ad. Makes sense. He's all about skating around the truth and dancing around questions.—

Of course, when big Hollywood celebrities hold fundraisers for Obama in their own homes, that’s a horse of another color, deserving to be fed naught but sugar lumps and shiny apples, according to the Left.
