Romney Ad Pits Clinton Against Obama

A new television ad from Mitt Romney's campaign is using Bill Clinton's words against President Obama. The ad shows a clip of Clinton publicly criticizing The President during the 2008 Democratic Primary. The clip comes from a campaign rally in New Hampshire that year, where Clinton said "Give me a break, this whole thing is the biggest fairy tale I've ever seen." Clinton has said he was referring to Obama's position on the Iraq war. The ad begins airing today in Ohio and seven other states. Meanwhile the former President plans to campaign for Obama in Ohio and Florida next week. The Obama campaign says details are still being finalized. Clinton gave a forceful speech at the Democratic National Convention on Wednesday, calling for Obama's re-election.
