Presidential Jobapalooza! (Mitt Romney “Did So” Edition) [New Series!]

Mitt Romney’s penurious campaign (it has spent under $5 million dollars on advertising since clinching the Republican presidential nomination vs. umpteen million dollars spent by GOP Super PACs) is actually dropping some coin on a TV spot defending his jobs record in Massachusetts.

Via MSNBC’s First Read:

In a response to this week’s hard-hitting Obama TV ad that criticizes Romney’s job-creation record in Massachusetts — that it ranked 47th in the nation — the Romney camp is up with its own ad. “As governor of Massachusetts, Mitt Romney had the best jobs record in a decade,” the ad goes. “Romney reduced unemployment to just 4.7%. “He balanced every budget without raising taxes. He did it by bringing parties together to cut through gridlock.”

The spot:


Reality check:

Some quick facts: The unemployment rate in Massachusetts was 4.7% in Dec. 2006, which was Romney’s last full month as governor, but that was higher than the nation’s overall 4.4% rate. While the ad states that Romney balanced the budget without raising taxes, he raised revenues and fees as governor.

And the beat(down) goes on.
