Gillespie: Voters have Cut Through Negative Ads

Senior Mitt Romney adviser Ed Gillespie says voters have finally gotten a chance to cut through all the negative ads aimed at the Republican nominee and now seem him as a credible  alternative to President Barack Obama.
"If you looked underneath the data [of last night's debate] on the economy, on job creation, on balancing the budget, Romney won on all those things," Gillespie told Fox News' Sean Hannity Monday night.
He added that "Every time the American people have seen a Mitt Romney who is different than . . . portrayed in 30-second attack ads," their doubts about his ability to run the country have been erased.
Whether the issue is foreign policy or the poor economy at home, Gillespie said Romney has proven to the American people during all three debates that he can get the job done where the president has failed.
He said Romney was particularly strong last night when he drew a sharp contrast with the president "in terms of how do you see our role in the world and what is the American role?"
"That was one of the best moments of the debate for [former Massachusetts] Gov. Romney," Gillespie said, adding that the Republican nominee was successful in pointing out the Obama administration was "too slow" in organizing sanctions against Iran and anticipating what might follow in the aftermath of the Arab Spring.
Gillespie said voters were also left wondering after the debate about the administration's handling of the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya that left four Americans dead.
"There are more questions than answers still as a result of this administration's inability to give us answers that prove to be accurate," he said, calling the attack "reflective of the broader failures of the president's policies."
