Obama Ad Calls Romney Out on His Automotive Industry Lies: VIDEO

Detroit

Mitt Romney put out an ad implying that Chrysler is moving U.S. jobs to China.

Writes Business Insider:

The claim is completely misleading and false, and provoked an outcry from Democrats and reporters . The report, from Bloomberg, actually said that Chrysler is talking about adding Jeep production in China in order to serve the Chinese market. Jeep production in North America would continue unchanged.

But despite the fact that Romney's claim was demonstrably wrong, his campaign is doubling down in the new ad, which went on air this weekend in Ohio.

The Obama campaign fires back at Romney's "lie" with a new ad.

When the auto industry faced collapse, Mitt Romney turned his back. Even the conservative Detroit News criticized Romney for his 'wrong-headedness' on the bailout. And now, after Romney's false claim of Jeep outsourcing to China, Chrysler itself has refuted Romney's lie. The truth? Jeep is adding jobs in Ohio.

Watch both, AFTER THE JUMP...
