From Politico’s Playbook:
“Obama campaign targets Romney ties to oil,” by AP’s Ken Thomas: “President Obama’s campaign accused Republican Mitt Romney of siding with “Big Oil” in a new television ad released Monday, signaling an escalation of a general election campaign and a vigorous debate over gas prices. ‘In all these fights, Mitt Romney’s stood with Big Oil – for their tax breaks, attacking higher mileage standards and renewables,’ the Obama campaign said in the new ad, which marked the first time the president’s campaign has publicly attacked Romney by name and made clear it views the former Massachusetts governor as Obama’s likely opponent next fall.”
Except the ad is actually from the pro-Obama Super PAC Priorities USA Action.
Not to get technical about it.
UPDATE: Except that’s not the ad the AP piece was talking about. This is:
APologies to the Associated Press for jumping to contusions.
