Over the weekend, Team Obama viciously mocked Mitt Romney’s patriotism in an ad set to the GOP candidate singing “America the Beautiful.”

Today, Team Romney is out with a singing Obama ad titled “Political Payoffs And Middle Class Layoffs.” But the president isn’t belting out anything patriotic. Instead, he serenades his donors with “I’m so in love with you,” a line from Al Green’s “Let’s Stay Together.”

The ad slams Obama for having a lot more love for the donor class than the middle class. Middle class prosperity is clearly a joke to President Back-Scratcher. He’s way more focused on picking corporate winners and losers and spreading the wealth to donors at the expense of taxpayers.

Who does Obama really want to help? Himself.

Progressives, of course, can’t shoot down the ad’s claims. Pesky truth and facts, always getting in the way! So instead, they’re trying to turn this into an Obama-Romney sing-off.

Really, guys? Your best argument is “Obama sings better, so shut up”? Going for the American Idol vote?

If that doesn’t work, there’s always the racism argument.

Good luck with that. We love the smell of desperation in the morning.
