Romney’s ad quoting Obama out of context prompts DNC to call Romney ‘serial deceiver’

If Mitt Romney’s intent in aiming his first TV ad at the economic record of President Obama was to get it widely discussed in the media, he certainly succeeded.

The 60-second ad, broadcast in New Hampshire, shows a video clip of Obama saying, “If we keep talking about the economy, we’re going to lose.” What the ad neglects to mention is that the clip is from Obama in 2008 in which he was quoting an anonymous aide in the campaign of his GOP rival, John McCain.
