Something a little unusual here. We expect to see the campaigns fighting with each other, but now the Romney campaign is fighting with GM and Chrysler, who have called Mitt out on his lying ads about the auto industry, including his false claim that jobs making Jeeps here will be moved to China.
The Romney campaign is dismissing the auto makers’ pushback and continuing their sleazy ads. All they care about is winning Ohio, and one in eight jobs there is auto-related.
It’s hard to call something a new low in presidential campaigning, but this may be it.
Mitt has shown us that he believes the end justifies the means. When he was running in Massachusetts, he got permission from the Mormon Church to lie about his position on abortion and pretend to be pro-choice, so long as he wouldn’t govern that way if elected.
