Romney commercials draw fire from automakers

LORDSTOWN

Republican Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign is facing criticism on new TV and radio commercials about the auto industry rescue from not only Democrats and auto union leaders, but from officials with Chrysler and General Motors, which received federal bailout money.

The commercials came after Romney said last week in Defiance, Ohio, that he read an article that Chrysler “is thinking of moving all production [of Jeeps] to China.”

The TV and radio ads — which changes the wording of Romney’s statement — are playing in Ohio, including the Mahoning Valley. Fact-checkers call the ads technically accurate, but misleading.

The Romney campaign says the ads are “factual.”

U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown, a Democrat who campaigned today in Lordstown, said, “I find it offensive and disingenuous that ... these people who fought the auto rescue and tried to defeat it would run that ad that is just clearly untrue about autos, about China.”

"GM and Chrysler are in the pay of the Democrats," says the Tea Party Chorus. I'd bet on hearing this tune from Tea Country very soon. Or from the Moaning Valley crowd, even sooner.
