Obama Doubles Down on Misleading Economic Statistics to Distort Romney Record

Today, the Obama campaign is following-up on last week’s ad – not to correct it, but to continue to sling mud in Romney’s general direction. The AP notes that “the ad is selective in its economic data. The Massachusetts economy improved slightly while Romney was governor but its average employment growth was among the nation’s worst.”

It’s all part of the Obama campaign’s attempt to relegate the issue of the economy to the back burner and sweep his own economic record under the rug. In the wake of a terrible jobs report last week, President Obama needs all the help he can get – and if he has to distort the truth to do it, so be it.
