Romney Ad Attacks Obama Support For Auto Bailout

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Mitt Romney is attacking President Barack Obama's support for the auto industry bailout in a new television ad.
The Republican presidential candidate is highlighting a General Motors dealer in Ohio forced to close in 2009. The ad blames the Obama administration for dealership closures across Ohio.
The spot is being released Wednesday, the same day Obama campaigns in Ohio.
The auto bailout was enacted by President George W. Bush in 2008 and continued under the Obama administration. Romney previously argued that the nation's auto companies should be left to go through bankruptcy without government assistance.
General Motors posted record profits last year.
The Romney campaign is also attacking Obama's comments about business creation on more than a dozen billboards in Orlando, Fla., where the president is set to campaign Thursday.

    I voted to make him our republican challenger, and I am sorry! This man wants to blame Obama for everything bad in the world, and yet single handedly insulted people in countries all over. Starting in England, where he insulted a ally! then he goes to Israel, and upsets everyone in the entire region. Then he goes to Poland, and his aide curses the reporters, who were on the trip with him. This is someone who thinks he would make a good president? By the way I am jewish, with family in Israel and Poland. I guess that Mr. Romney is unaware that most homes in Israel have bomb shelters. Why would anyone keep opening their mouths and shoving in both feet? This man if elected will single handedly destroy our forigen relations with everyone. I am at the point that if he is talking then I am afraid of what he might be saying. I am so disapointed with this person.
