Totally Independent Romney Super PAC Just Re-Runs Old Romney Ad

Up now on YouTube: A fresh new ad from Restore Our Future, the Super PAC that is legally prohibited from co-ordinating with Mitt Romney's campaign.

Did I say "new"? I'm sorry. This is actually an ad that the Romney campaign used in the last presidential primary. Same subject, same music, same b-roll.

The only difference: The ad ends with Romney approving of the ad, instead of a generic message about how the ad is NOT AUTHORIZED BY ANY CANDIDATE'S COMMITTEE.
