Former Governor Ted Strickland says Romney's TV ads are deceiving
Romney has been airing ads that blame President Obama for the closure of automobile dealerships

Former Ohio Governor Ted Strickland is taking issue with Republican Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney for television ads he’s airing that accuse President Obama of being responsible for closures of some automobile dealerships. Strickland says the auto bailout President Obama supported and Romney opposed has helped thousands of Ohioans keep good jobs tied to the industry.

“When the U.S. Auto industry was facing a crisis, President Obama ignored the pundits and he ignored politics and he rescued this iconic American industry. Meanwhile, Mitt Romney can’t talk about the auto industry without putting his foot in his mouth.”

Strickland says over 2000 more Ohioans are working in car dealerships now than when President Obama took office. But Chris Maloney with Romney’s campaign stands behind the ad. He says Strickland’s complaints are just more political rhetoric.

“The larger question here is whether the American government should be in the position of choosing winners or losers and bailing out industry with American tax dollars.”

Maloney says the fact is General Motors closed the Mansfield plant and some dealerships as a result of the auto bailout.
