Mitt Romney‘s campaign continued criticism of President Barack Obama and the controversial Priorities USA ad on Friday — with senior adviser Eric Fehrnstrom stating the president’s “lost his credibility.” Obama’s campaign, he said, couldn’t get any lower.
“When you start running ads accusing you opponent of killing people, then you have lost your credibility,” Fehrnstrom said to reporters at a briefing, according to BuzzFeed.
Adding imagery to his sentiment, he noted, “I don’t think a world champion limbo dancer could get any lower than the Obama campaign right now.”
This is just the latest in a series of attacks the campaigns have exchanged in light of increasingly negative ads. Fehrnstrom is also the subject of a Huffington Post profile that peers inside “the tough-guy persona that belies his bespectacled, middle-aged moon face.” The piece particularly dwells a bit on the adviser’s past gaffes (including, you’ll recall, the “Etch A Sketch” remark that immediately went viral).
