The accompanying note at the end of the ad is explicit. That this came directly from the Obama campaign and not a SuperPAC is rather amazing. This is a direct challenge to everything Mitt Romney stands for.

Mitt Romney's not the solution. He's the problem.

The Obama campaign is out with a new ad this morning, "Firms," that hits Mitt Romney on outsourcing jobs over audio of Romney singing "America the Beautiful."

"In business, Mitt Romney's firm shipped jobs to Mexico. And China," the text of the ad says, showing footage of foreign countries as Romney sings. "As Governor, Romney outsourced jobs to India."

The ad will run in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Virginia, per a release from the campaign.
