Romney’s new Iowa ad

Mitt Romney is up on the air with a new ad in Iowa where he frames the fiscal crises in moral terms.

“We have a moral responsibility not to spend more than we take in,” he says in the 30-second ad. “It is a moral responsibility to believe in fiscal responsibility.”

The ad closes with a shot of Romney strolling with his wife, Ann.
