Romney issues new ad. Problems of the unemployed. Featured guy with a long rap sheet

One of the big differences between Obama and Romney is the professional character of the campaigns.

If he can't get a video done right how is he going to lead a country.

What a putz.

Jason Clausen, a Mason City, Iowa man featured in Mitt Romney's new video featuring unemployed people has a lengthy rap sheet and served ten days in jail for "assault on a peace officer," public records show.

Clause is seen in the video "A few of the 23 million" saying, "When the economy went bad a month after my divorce, I lost my job, I lost my house." He and his wife filed for a dissolution of their marriage, records show, in January 2009, months after the economy started tanking.

According to public records, a Jason Clausen with his birth date was found guilty of "assault on peace officers and others" on Feb. 28, 2005. He was sentenced to 120 days in jail, with 110 of those days suspended. He was given 730 days probation and paid $845 in fines, records show. Iowa Dept. of Corrections records show he was on probation for "a serious misdemeanor" until April 3, 2006.

The records show Clausen had nearly 20 busts, tickets or fines, a number of them traffic infractions related to things like driving while intoxicated, or with a suspended license. Some were related to accidents, others to driving without seat belts.

1. Leaves a lot of confidence in his ability to vet the VP nominee

Now apparently its Obama's responsibility to find jobs for multiple felons.

Maybe he should check in with Mike Huckabee or Haley Barbour. I hear they have a soft spot for career criminals.
