Mitt Romney's campaign kicked off the week on the offense, claiming the President's friends have benefited from political payoffs while the middle class suffers.
The ad follows numerous attacks by the president and his surrogates regarding Romney's connection to outsourcing of U.S. jobs, allegations that the President over the weekend said his campaign would not apologize for making.
"What does it say about a president whose record is so poor that all he can do in his campaign is attack me?" Romney said. "A campaign based on falsehood and dishonesty does not have long legs."
Appearing on Fox News, Romney today implied that his campaign is going to turn up heat on the president.
"The best offense is to look at the president's record," Romney said.
"When billions upon billions of dollars are given by the Obama administration to the businesses of campaign contributors, that's a real problem, particularly at a time when the middle class is really suffering in this country," Romney said. "I think it's wrong. I think it stinks to high heaven."
