( The Root) -- Mitt Romney wants you to know he cares. No, no -- he really cares. He cares so much that he needs to tell everyone how much he cares in a new ad. He knows that the polls say that America believes Obama cares, so he can't even bad-mouth the president on that. What does a presidential candidate do?

Well, apparently he turns to the camera and makes an impassioned plea. Check out the ad and the discussion that followed from TWiB! Radio.
