A Mitt Romney campaign video posted on his campaign website appears to have been taken down due to a “copyright claim by BMG_Rights_Management.” The video included January footage of President Obama singing Al Green’s “Let’s Stay Together” juxtaposed with headlines accusing Obama of awarding donors and lobbyists.
The video came in response to an Obama campaign ad released over the weekend that slammed Romney for tax evasion as the former governor sings “American the Beautiful.”
The original video of Obama singing the song uploaded by the Associated Press is still available on YouTube. The Obama campaign also made a ringtone of the president’s rendition of the Motown classic available on its website. Requests to the Romney campaign and BMG for comment were not immediately answered.
That’s funny, BMG didn’t have any problem with Obama singing the song in the first place. That video has been up since January. I guess it’s just a coinky-dink that YouTube is owned by Google and Google is a big supporter of Obama.
