SHARE Obama camp to use Romney 47 % video for TV ad; already on web video

Wasting no time in seizing on a low-point for Mitt Romney, the campaign to reelect President Obama is already exploring a separate TV ad using a leaked campaign fund-raising video of the GOP candidate that went viral on Monday.

Obama already posted a Web video today featuring “regular people” who are reacting to the video, which was leaked to Mother Jones and posted on its Web site on Monday. It appears that Millennium Park is in the background of the video.

A source close to the campaign says they are looking at a separate TV spot using the video.

In the Romney video, he is heard saying that 47 percent of Americans pay no income taxes, are entitled and as president: “my job is not to worry about those people.”

Romney called a news conference late Monday to attempt to quell the growing firestorm over the comments.

He asked that the full video be released to show his comments in context.

Mother Jones earlier today said that will happen.
