Mitt Romney wanted the Obama camp to apologize. Instead, he got this: a brutal new ad that doubles down on the charge that Romney is an outsourcing fiend. It features Romney singing "American the Beautiful" as words pop up saying things like, "In business, Mitt Romney’s firms shipped jobs to Mexico. And China." The ad also tweaks Romney for his overseas bank accounts. The Des Moines Register notes that has accused the Obama campaign of "overeach" in its previous outsourcing attacks, as has the Romney campaign itself in its "No Evidence" ad.
