Although President Barack Obama is heavily favored to win Michigan—and David Axelrod is confident enough of victory to stake his mustache on it—his campaign isn't letting a Romney Super PAC ad buy in the state go unanswered. "Remember what Mitt Romney said ... and what President Obama did, for Michigan" the Obama campaign's first ad in the state says, interspersed with footage of Romney saying "that's exactly what I said. The headline you read, which said 'let Detroit go bankrupt.'" The ad is airing in Grand Rapids and the Detroit area.

Meanwhile, Chrysler is not only pushing back against Mitt Romney's claims that it's moving jobs to China by pointing out that it is in fact adding jobs in the U.S., but reported its best October sales in five years, with 31 consecutive months of year-over-year sales gains. With the facts of the auto industry so much in Obama's favor, and to his credit, no wonder Romney is flailing wildly.

Please contribute to help President Obama in the final days of the campaign.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
