Obama ad calls Romney ‘the problem’ with job losses to China – Yahoo! News

Undeterred by independent fact-checkers that have debunked the thrust of their claims, the Obama campaign is redoubling attacks on Mitt Romney as an “outsourcer” in a new TV ad airing in eight battleground states. The 30-second spot — titled “The Problem” — claims Romney condoned the Chinese “taking our jobs and taking a lot of our future.”

The Romney campaign called the latest ad a continuation of “desperate lies,” citing reports by several independent fact-checkers that have discredited the suggestion that Romney himself had a direct role in relocating U.S. jobs overseas. “We found no evidence to support the claim that Romney — while he was still running Bain Capital — shipped American jobs overseas,” FactCheck.org concluded in a report last month. Washington Post fact checker Glenn Kessler also concluded that while Bain-owned companies may have engaged in outsourcing, Romney’s ties to the practice are tenuous.

I know I should be thrilled that Yahoo News is actually telling the truth about Obama….  for once.

The thing is, this is hardly “man-bites-dog” news.  It’s more like in the line of reporting that water is wet.

But kudos, for once, to Yahoo and ABC, the source of the story.

    Other than repealing Obamacare, I wish that Romney had at least the makings of some dynamic, new approach to the current presidency. People tend to vote for a candidate’s personality, and Romney just doesn’t seem to show very much. Am I missing something about the man?

    Walter Mondale, Bob Dole, John Kerry, Mitt Romney? Is it just that voters tend to give presidents 2nd chances thus 2nd terms, and the Party powers that be always knew this?
