No shame. No shame. No shame. Absolutely no shame: "Romney Expands False Jeep-China Ad Campaign"

Romney expands false Jeep-to-China ad campaign
By Greg Sargent

Mitt Romney’s new television ad suggesting that the auto bailout will result in American jeep jobs getting shipped to China has been widely pilloried by news organizations, both nationally and in Ohio. The Romney campaign’s response: It is expanding the ad campaign.

A Dem source familiar with ad buy info tells me that the Romney campaign has now put a version of the spot on the radio in Toledo, Ohio — the site of a Jeep plant. The buy is roughly $100,000, the source says.

The move seems to confirm that the Romney campaign is making the Jeep-to-China falsehood central to its final push to turn things around in the state. The Romney campaign has explicitly said in the past that it will not let fact checking constrain its messaging, so perhaps it’s not surprising that it appears to be expanding an ad campaign based on a claim that has been widely pilloried by fact checkers.

The move represents a gamble on Romney’s part. The audacity of this falsehood makes it easier for the Obama camp to raise doubts about Romney’s character, integrity, and honesty — and to make the case that Romney not only failed to support the bailout when Ohio needed it; he’s now lying extensively to cover it up. Yesterday in Ohio, Joe Biden slammed the Romney camp by saying: “Have they no shame?”

What a pluperfect asshole.

I still would enjoy seeing Chrysler take out a really large "truth" ad in several local papers........I can dream about it at least.

6. I just can't imagine anyone falling for this crap

Here in Michigan, people are very, VERY much aware of where Romney stood on the issue in 2008. Why do you think Michigan is so deep blue this time around? I know our neighbors, who depend on autos just as much as us, must be equally aware. Who'd fall for this bullcrap?
