Romney Ad Uses Footage of Hillary Accusing Obama of Running Deceptive Ads

An ad that Politico obtained that the Romney campaign is running (but has not blasted out to reporters)

“Barack Obama’s attacks against Mitt Romney: they’re just not true,” says the ad’s narrator. “The Washington Post says, ‘On just about every level, this ad is misleading, unfair, and untrue.’ But that’s Barack Obama. He also attacked Hillary Clinton with vicious lies.” The ad then cuts to footage of Hillary Clinton saying that Obama “continues to spend millions of dollars perpetuating falsehoods.”

The Washington Post piece cited is a June 21st piece by Glenn Kessler, which said that an Obama campaign ad accusing Romney of being responsible for jobs being outsourced deserved four Pinnochios. “On just about every level, this ad is misleading, unfair and untrue, from the use of ‘corporate raider’to its examples of alleged outsourcing,” Kessler wrote.
