New ad titled ‘Dishonest’ hits Romney over his claim that he’s not in favor of a $5 trillion tax cut

The Obama campaign released a new ad for television Saturday titled, ‘Dishonest’ to hit Mitt Romney over his fact-free debate last Wednesday night, namely his claim that he is not in favor of a $5 trillion tax cut.

The narrator begins:
“This was dishonest.”

Mitt Romney:
“I’m not in favor of a $5 trillion tax cut.”

“Romney’s being dishonest here too:”

Voiceover from Romney ad:
“According to an Independent, non-partisan study, Barack Obama and the liberals will raise taxes on the middle class…”

The Chairman of that so-called independent group is from Romney’s former company. Dick Cheney’s on its board. Newt Gingrich was there too. It’s not independent. It’s just not true.”

The ad will be airing in battleground states.

    Uh oh.
