"Vice President Joe Biden on Wednesday branded a much-criticized Ohio ad campaign by Republican nominee Mitt Romney "an outrageous lie" and cast it as a character issue that should matter to all voters, not just those in Ohio.
In TV and radio ads running in Ohio, Romney suggests that Chrysler and GM are shipping jobs to China and that Romney, who opposed the Obama administration bailout that revived U.S. automakers, is the true champion of the industry. Fact-checkers, both car companies, and the Obama campaign have accused Romney of flagrant distortions.
Biden took the rhetoric to new heights on Wednesday. The Ohio ad, he told a rally here, says Obama forced Chrysler into bankruptcy so that "Italians could take over Chrysler and ship Jeep manufacturing to China. ... It's an outrageous lie. A lie, a lie that is so deceptive and so patently untrue" that Chrysler executives have felt compelled to point out repeatedly that not only are they not sending U.S. jobs anywhere, they are adding shifts and workers at U.S. plants."* Cenk Uygur breaks down Biden's counter-comments, the straight facts, and the words straight from General Motors that prove Romney's ads airing in Ohio are not truthful.
