In 2008 the McCain campaign created a the best ad of the presidential campaign tying the future President to his religious mentor Jeremiah”God-damn America” Wright . Even though his opponent was throwing every dirty trick in the book at him, John McCain refused to allow this factual commercial to run.
Apparently the same thing happened in 2012. The RNC created a great commercial about Benghazi which ABC dug up and released today. It uses the now famous Hilary Clinton 3am phone call as a starting point and then cuts to video of the burning U.S. consulate in Benghazi Libya.
Over the images of the attack––words appear on the screen:
“The Call Came … On September 12, 2012.” As the screen goes black, the words continue: “Security Requests Denied. Four Americans Dead. And an Administration whose story is still changing. The Call Came.” watch it below:

Apparently Romney nixed the ad because he thought it would distract from his economic message, but truth be told the commercial seems very effective and it may have made the difference in some of the close states.
