Which candidate was dumb enough to use a Canadian skyline in their campaign ad?

It was Rubio.

First off, this ad is a mess. The original “Morning in America” ad by Ronald Reagan was a tribute to an America that was recovering from an economic malaise. The people behind this ad apparently don’t understand metaphor and in parroting but not parodying Reagan’s original ad, they failed to capture any of the original’s meaning. Worse than that, though, is the fact that the video uses Vancouver’s skyline as a stand-in for any American skyline. If Rubio cares so much about all of the missing American jobs, why give the job of “America” to Canada? See for yourself.
