Mitt Romney's Deceptive Campaigning

There is a difference between hard-scrabble campaigning and outright misrepresentation and lying.  Mitt Romney has run his first campaign ad specifically attacking President Obama, and in that ad he outright lies about Obama's positions.  To give you a sense of Romney's tactic, the following clip is an example of what Romney would have to consider to be a fair and accurate representation of his own positions:

Yep, Romney actually said every single one of these things.  But it is offensive to pass off these things out of context to give the impression that this is what Romney actually believes.  Yet, that's exactly the kind of treatment of Obama that is included in Romney's ad.  He should be ashamed of himself.
