The Obama campaign is going after Mitt Romney with attack ads in three battleground states characterizing the Republican candidate as an "outsourcer-in-chief" who hasn't stood up to China.
A spot in Ohio shows an earlier Romney campaign ad in which a narrator says, “Day one, President Romney stands up to China.” Ominous music builds, and a narrator in the Obama ad asks: “But would he?”
“Romney’s companies were pioneers in shipping U.S. jobs overseas,” the narrator continues in the ad, entitled “Revealed.” The assertion is based on a Washington Post article reporting that Bain Capital played a large role in outsourcing while Romney headed the firm. Romney's campaign has disputed the report.
The Obama ad ends with this narration: “Romney’s never stood up to China. All he’s ever done is send them our jobs.”
