Obama Launches Negative Ad On Romney’s Massachusetts Record

Obama campaign goes negative — again. “Heard it Before” is airing in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.

One day after Obama senior adviser David Axelrod said Obama was running a positive campaign, Chicago launched another negative spot on Mitt Romney — attacking his record as Governor of Massachusetts.

Romney’s advertising in the general election has remained mostly positive so far, while outside groups have launched wave after wave of negative attacks to match and surpass Obama’s spending.

Update: Romney Press Secretary Andrea Saul released this statement on the ad:

“Having abandoned ‘Hope and Change,’ the Obama campaign only ‘Hopes To Change The Subject’ from an abysmal jobs report. We’re happy to compare the 4.7% unemployment rate Mitt Romney achieved in Massachusetts to President Obama’s weak record any day. President Obama’s policies have failed to get Americans back to work – it’s time for a president who has worked in the real world economy and understands how to get this economy moving again.” -
