Video of the Day: The DNC Hones in on Mitt Romney

Above is the latest Democratic National Committee attack video targeting Mitt Romney. In this one, the Republican candidate voices support for a voucherized health-care system for veterans.

In case you weren't paying attention, the DNC has gone after Romney more extensively than any other candidate in the GOP race -- suggesting the party sees him as a the likely GOP nominee, and bigger threat to President Obama than his Republican rivals.

The Romney campaign has been paying attention, and highlighted these DNC attacks in a fundraising email on Monday, writing:

So how deep does the Mitt-obsession run? Here's a small sample:

  • Obama's press secretary, Ben LaBolt, has referenced Mitt Romney over 110 times on Twitter in the last month. On the other hand, he mentioned "jobs" 11 times and "Iran" twice.
  • In the last five days, "Romney" has been mentioned 37 times on the Democratic Party's official Twitter feed, with no mention of any other GOP candidate.
  • The DNC has released 26 attack videos on its YouTube channels. Unsurprisingly, all 26 videos have only one target - you guessed it, Mitt Romney.
