Romney's lastest ad is a fraud

Romney's latest ad purports to present a former Obama supporter now disillusioned. The problem is that they chose a very well know long time Republican staffer, Bettina Inclan, to the play the roll of disillusioned voter.

Once again, TPM has the scope.
RNC staffer Bettina Inclan pretending to be former Obama supporter
The new ad features Republican National Committee Director of Hispanic Outreach Bettina Inclan, who in the ad purports to be an average woman voter who supported Obama in 2008. She describes her disillusionment with the president in the ad as a romantic relationship gone awry....

Inclan began her current RNC post in January 2012, and has worked in Republican politics since well before Obama’s 2008 election. She did Hispanic outreach for Rick Scott’s 2010 Florida gubernatorial race worked on Capitol Hill for Rep. Lincoln Diaz-Balart (R-FL), Rep. Thaddeus McCotter (R-MI) and as national executive director of the Republican National Hispanic Assembly.

“I was never pressured to be a Republican, but I am very much a fiscal conservative,” Inclan told Business Insider in May. “It might be because we were always on a very tight budget growing up. Or maybe my views of the world fall in line with the Republican Party.”
Have you ever seen a more poorly run campaign?  They could have hired an unknown actress and no one would have ever founder her to prove the lie.

Time and again, they get caught manufacturing evidence to not give Obama a second term. Time and again, they are exposed, and yet they don't stop.  I've seen poorly run campaigns in both parties, but nothing like this. 

What does this say about the substance of the Romney campaign?
