Some may call it the cruelest spot of the circuit so far. The Obama campaign just released an ad that features Romney awkwardly crooning "America the Beautiful," while images of his alleged offshore tax havens scroll onscreen. The ad for the president—who has little trouble carrying a tune in public—also states that the former governor shipped jobs overseas while head of Bain Capital, a claim Romney loathes. "Barack Obama has resorted to the tactics of a typical politician," Romney spokeswoman Amanda Henneberg told the New York Times. "Dishonest and totally unsubstantiated attacks." The campaign said the ad will run in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.
