My first dairy and I'm relatively new I will be short.I think the liar has bankrupted his own campaign by lying about Chrysler moving to China...

From Business Insider....
Ads that mislead or stretch the truth are nothing new for presidential campaigns. But this ad — and Romney's comments last week — has prompted harsh criticism from the media, likely because it strikes reporters as not only disingenuous, but irresponsible. For Romney to suggest that the livelihoods of specific voters — namely workers at the Jeep plant in Toledo — are in danger in order to win an election comes across to many as the type of fear-mongering that no one wants in a president.

Seeing an opening in the outcry, the Obama campaign pounced Monday. In a conference call with reporters Monday morning, Obama's campaign manager Jim Messina suggested that the ad was a "desperate" move by the Romney campaign, calling it "one of the most misleading, hypocritical and indefensible ads we've seen in a presidential race."

Later, on another press conference call, Ken Lortz, a United Auto Workers leader in Toledo, said that Romney's ad had only upset Ohioans "who know better.”

"We knew he wasn’t on our side when the economy and the industry was on the brink," Lortz said "But the fact that he would lie to our faces and try to deceive us is just too much."

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
