Obama Camp: Mitt Doesn't Tell the Truth

The Obama campaign has reacted to Mitt Romney's assertion that President Obama is to blame for the shuttering of an Ohio factory that closed down before he took office. Trying desperately to avoid calling the presidential candidate an outright liar, Obama's rapid response director issued a statement Thursday insisting that the president has, in fact, helped create jobs since in office and that Mitt's own gubernatorial record is a better example of job loss. "Mitt Romney is building quite a record of giving speeches filled with distortions and fabrications. Why does he have such an aversion to the truth?"
