Obama to Air Ads in Michigan Touting Auto Bailout

WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama's campaign plans to air advertising in Michigan beginning Wednesday touting the president's support of the auto industry, responding to Republican ads criticizing the president.
Obama campaign officials say the ad comes in response to a $2 million ad buy by a Republican super PAC supporting Mitt Romney, Restore Our Future.
Obama won Michigan handily in 2008 and the state has not been among the battleground states heavily contested by both campaigns.
Obama officials have said they will not take anything for granted and match Republicans in advertising.
Republicans say the moves show Romney momentum and a sign that he is putting Obama on the defensive in traditionally Democratic states like Minnesota, Pennsylvania and Michigan.

    If Obama loses this election, you can blame/thank the Right for bamboozling him. How is it ethical that an entire news network questions the President’s citizenship for four years to create doubt in voters while a fringe element of the far right demonizes and degrades him? Most of this is financed by the rich who want to keep their stranglehold on the flow of wealth in our country.
