Bringing a knife to a gun fight

Come on, guys.  This is what the other side is putting out—an ad, posted on the official Barack Obama campaign YouTube page this past Friday:

There's just one little problem: John Hinderaker at PowerLine says

...The ad is surprisingly ineffective, but it is also dishonest. At least one of the women who pose as “Republican women for Obama” is a long-time Democrat...

...There are liars; there are compulsive liars; and then there is the Obama campaign. If someone took the trouble to track the down the other women in the ad, they would probably find something similar. If you do that, please record your findings in the comments.

UPDATE: OK, I’ve broken through on this via Facebook. More of the women are fake “Republicans.”...

 
I can just hear someone on the left spluttering, "But the One can't be held responsible for the actions of people working on his campaign!"
 
And as we all know, the buck has to stop someplace:
 
 
 
So what do our guys do? At Politico:
“I know there are some people who do a very good job acting and pretend they’re something they’re not,” Romney said. “You get what you see. I am who I am.”
 
To press the point, he said the GOP would even try to turn Obama’s still-high personal favorability rankings back on him at its convention this week, by making the simple case to voters: nice guy, failed president.
Un-frickin'-believable. These people are going to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.
 
This isn't simply a case of someone being an incompetent nincompoop (some would say a SCoaMF)—although that may also be true. This is a clash of world views: collectivism v. freedom:
 

Which do you choose—liberty or tyranny?

And Republicans...we're in dire straits. Based on data from the Treasury and the OMB, the Senate Budget Committee Republican staff under ranking member Jeff Sessions [R-AL] reports that in the last 4 years, the debt increased by more than it did in the previous 17 years.

Can't we take off the kid gloves now?

UPDATE:

Sorry, Rich, but this is one time I have to disagree with you.  I seriously doubt that this was what Romney had in mind (great Photoshop, though  smiley  ):
