New Obama Attack Ad Slams Romney for Outsourcing Jobs And Financial Accounts

This Obama campaign ad, while a respite from the ol' adorable-little-girl fear-mongering gambit employed often by the GOP, is pretty harsh. Set to the Mittens Romney rendition of "America The Beautiful," which he often performs during speeches, it informs viewers that Romney has stayed afloat by shipping jobs overseas to Mexico, China and India, also alleging that Romney has "millions" in banks in Bermuda and the Cayman Islands.

Romney's camp has hit back, calling the ad "reckless" and "absurd," but the Democrats have withheld the apology they demanded.

Our political parties are more divided than they have been since the civil war. Politics is all about the art of compromise - but hate is a pretty stupid way to attempt that. It is disappointing that the election campaigns are turning dirty. I much preferred Obama's tactics in 2008, inspiring hope and inclusion among Americans in a way I've never experienced before. He didn't do a great job at keeping the feeling up during his actual time in office, unfortunately.
