A Democratic SuperPAC is targeting Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney with a new Internet campaign that raises questions about his economic agenda one year before the 2012 election.

Priorities USA Action, a group run by former aides to President Barack Obama, said it was spending $100,000 to run advertising across websites such as Facebook, Google and YouTube as well as news websites.


A Web video released by the group Wednesday labels Romney as the Republican front-runner and outlines the policies it says the nation could expect if Romney wins the White House next year.

The video opens with Republican strategist Karl Rove saying Obama will not be able to win re-election and includes clips of Romney saying "corporations are people" and the housing foreclosure process needs to "hit the bottom."

"Mitt Romney's America is not our America," the ad declares.

Andrea Saul, a Romney spokeswoman, said that while the former Massachusetts governor was "focused on his jobs and economic plan, which will provide relief for the middle-class taxpayers, President Obama and his cronies are worried about their own jobs."
