First, he puts out an ad. Second, someone drops oppo on him in South Carolina. Basically, he used to be sensible before he started pandering. Does anyone think he is running? Why is this happening?

Ryan Sager points out how misleading the ad is:

It’s worth noting just how misleading this ad is: 15 of the 19 9/11 hijackers were in America legally on visas. Punishing Mexican immigrants for Saudi terrorism is more than a non-sequitur — it’s a transparent fig leaf for pre-existing nativist sentiment.

This is a citizens united ad, so maybe Newt is just doing them a favor or he was paid to do it. The same group had Fred Thompson appear in an ad during the 04 General against Kerry.

What is even more bizzare to me is the choice of music in the background, it’s like elevator light jazz, not exactly what I would have chosen for an ominous fear inducing ad.
