Obama Ad Calls Romney ‘Dishonest’

Obama Ad Calls Romney ‘Dishonest’

The Obama campaign released a new television ad Saturday accusing Mitt Romney of being "dishonest" when he claimed during the debate that he is not in favor of a $5 trillion tax cut. It also goes after a Romney ad that claims President Obama would raise taxes on middle-class Americans.

The ad, titled "Dishonest," will air in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Nevada, Ohio and Virginia.

Care to share?

4. I don't either, this is not an easy sound bite, the commercial states he lied about the 5 trillion

dollar tax cut but didn't clearly show Mittens saying he would implement the tax cut. I would have thought having a clip of Romney talking about ALL his tax cuts would have been more direct and to the point, I don't think going after the study was a good strategy, people don't care about studies IMHO... it's not like they are going to go read the study..

5. It's was

"I don't think going after the study was a good strategy, people don't care about studies IMHO"

...an opportunity to put a face to the study. Voters know who Cheney and Gingrich are, two of the most unpopular partisan hacks in the country.

6. I don't like it either.

It doesn't refute Romney's first statement...just leaves it hanging. So the viewer is waiting for HOW it is deceptive and it's never answered. And that muddles the second point.
