The DNC has released a new web video accusing Republican nominee-to-be Mitt Romney of “dancing around the issues” — just like his dressage horse, Rafalca.

Although Romney will be in London during the Olympics, he will not be watching Rafalca perform. He claims that he will be too busy, and he also probably doesn’t want the headlines that would come along with his attendence. As Democratic consultant Tad Devine said in April, “Dressage sounds like a very upper class activity, and I think the campaign doesn’t want to do anything to remind people that he lives a life very different than most in this country.”
