The Obama-Biden Truth Team is hard at work calling out Mitt Romney for his lies: "Mitt Romney says he wants to run on the issues. But the ads he's running are false welfare reform attack ads." The video ends with Mitt Romney speaking at a campaign event: Mr. Presdient, take your campaign out of the gutter, to which the Obama campaign responds, Mr. Romney ... take your own advice.
