Fact-checking Mitt Romney

Team Romney has apparently put out a new campaign ad, and the Obama campaign is already all over it.

“Another Mitt Romney ad – and yet more empty promises. Contrary the claims made in his latest ad, on Day One, Mitt Romney would blow a hole in the deficit with $5 trillion worth of budget-busting tax cuts weighted towards millionaires and billionaires. And we know Mitt Romney can’t be trusted to stand up to China because in 2010 he criticized President Obama for acting to protect the American tire industry, calling it 'decidedly bad for the nation and our workers.’ If Mitt Romney had had his way, more than one thousand American workers’ jobs would have been on the chopping block. President Obama has proposed a balanced plan to reduce the deficit by more than $4 trillion, taken unprecedented action to protect American products and workers from unfair Chinese trade practices, and initiated an overhaul of the regulatory system that cuts red tape and will save businesses $10 billion over the next five years. We can’t afford to go back to the same policies that crashed our economy and devastated the middle class in the first place – America can’t afford Romney Economics.”—Lis Smith, campaign spokeswoman
