Etch-a-Sketching isn’t exclusive to just Mitt Romney today. Restore Our Future, the Super PAC supporting Romney in his bid for the presidency is also wiping its slate clean.In this case, Restore Our Future is getting rid of all the nasty, mean things it said about other Republicans during the primary season. Specifically, it has removed all but two of its videos from YouTube, as Politico first noted. And it has also taken down two of its sister, spin-off sites — newtfacts.com and rickfacts.com, which basically served as attack sites on once-rival Republican candidates Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum.
Here’s the Super PAC’s YouTube page. It has only two videos, scrubbing many others. Of the two that are left, one is an attack on Barack Obama and one details the story of how Romney helped save a kidnapped girl of a partner at Bain Capital.
Here’s an example of one of the videos taken down, an attack spot on Newt Gingrich. It’s one of many that helped to take a toll on his poll numbers in Iowa and Florida — the latter a crucial spot for Romney to halt Gingrich’s momentum.
The group has also started a Web site, rickfacts.com, which accuses Mr. Santorum of having voted for earmarks that included a “Bridge to Nowhere, a teapot museum and an indoor rain forest.”
And as for the site aimed at Gingrich, here’s a link to all the sites you can now click on that either redirect to the main page or give a 404 error message, because the pages have been scraped from the organisation’s sites. And here’s a screenshot:
According to Politico, Restore Our Future spent more than $35 million during the primary season, serving as a major force behind Romney’s eventual triumph.
Restore Our Future didn’t respond to a request for comment Monday afternoon.
