>> but it's striking, ohio is such an important state here in the battleground map, leader cantor, and yet this is a radio ad that the romney campaign is running in that critical state about the auto bailout and about jeep. i want you to listen to it.
>> barack obama says he saved the auto industry . but for who? ohio ? or china? and now comes word that chrysler plans to start making jeeps in, you guessed it, china. mitt romney . he'll stand up for the auto industry , in ohio , not china.
>> the head of chrysler said that that is deceptive, that they are opening production facilities to service the chinese market while they are also expanding production in ohio . this from a business leader governor romney who apparently thinks it's good business to outsource in order to make companies more competitive. is this the hopeful specific agenda that governor romney has for the state of ohio and the country?
>> you know, i think the point of that ad is the fact that we need a president who's actually going to focus on increasing the competitiveness of america so that we can see plant openings here. and we really need a president who is going to focus on making things in america so we can sell them abroad. and i think that's why you have seen former chrysler clee icoca indors mitt romney . we need somebody to work with all sides to bring them together with the single focus of getting this economy back on track. david, i've not seen the ad. i just heard it now. i've not seen the ad. apparently they are not running it in virginia. so i've not seen the ad. but i do think the point is mitt romney has demonstrated the ability of building jobs, of making it so that we can have more investment, more economic activity, in america . he has a demonstrated track record and has provided an actual plan, whereas all you're getting from the president in these closing days of his campaign is more negativity, more attacks, and i just think that, again, americans are looking to see how they can make their lives work again. barack obama is not providing any answers, and if you like the way things are now with nearly 8% unemployment, that's what you're going to get if you re-elect the president.
