I'm getting sick of hearing about Bain Capital and jobs going overseas. When can we hear about the issues that matter for this country?

*facepalm*.

I said alot more than that though. My point was that Obama doesn't understand the private sector.

How does Romney, who spent years bankrupting companies and sending jobs overseas, understand the needs of working-class Americans?

No he spent years helping companies. The cold hard truth is that in the private sector not everyone makes it. Jobs go overseas to avoid the high corporate taxes that Democrats have forced on us. Working class? You're suggesting that those who have been successful don't work hard?
I could not agree more.  The main reason that jobs go overseas is because our tax structure and other economic policies chase jobs out of America.  I believe that we need some taxes and regulation, but both need to be reduced.  I find it so ironic that liberal always bemoan "tax breaks for companies that ship jobs overseas" because their policies are largely the reason for it.

The only way to have American companies voluntarily keep jobs in the USA is to reduce pay and working conditions to Chinese levels, because corporations are always going to find the schmucks who are willing to work for $2 an hour for 12 hours a day.

Not quite.  Chinese wages have been rising because of their own prosperity. China's lax enforcement of IP law, while better than it was, is still weak enough to give companies making innovative goods cause for concern.  The rise in oil prices from their abyssal lows a decade ago has considerably increased shipping costs, plus a shorter supply chain means you can keep inventory low.  The really cheap gods are increasing being made elsewhere than China. The production of goods requiring either at minimum a semi-skilled workforce or which are heavy or bulky is moving back to North America, some here in the USA, some to Mexico depending on the product.

I like how the main character of that ad is a loving dog owner. Look at him feeding his dog and giving him cool Barack Obama dog bandanas to wear around its neck and not putting him on top of a car for 8 hours.

They're right to attack him on this, but I think the video is a bit too long and would have a bit more of a punch if it was less than two and a half minutes long.

Obama 30 sec TV spot goes after Romney tax plan and ties in his personal taxes.
Note how they have a shot of Romney standing next to Trump's plane (best they can do as Romney refuses to allow cameras around when he met with THe DOnald)

This isn't a presidential ad, but check out this senate primary ad that tears into Ron Paul. It is a pretty devastating ad.

Romney's new "Be Not Afraid - Obama declares war on religion" ad has a clip from his speech in Poland, citing Pope John Paul II. The end of the ad has Romney shaking hands with Walesa with the text "Endorsed by Lech Walesa." There's even a picture of Walesa shaking hands with the Pope (with a caption for those that don't know who he is) right before the part where Walesa shakes hands with Romney. So is it supposed to be "Pope and Walesa are buddies -> Walesa wants Romney -> Pope John Paul II would vote for Mitt" or something like that?

Also, is the Polish - American electorate the new swing group or something?

It is one of the groups Mitt is targeting with an astroturf "Polish Americans for Romney" group on his website.  That one makes more sense than his "Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders for Romney" which is so obviously astroturf as to be insulting.  Oddest of all is "Lawyers for Romney".  Has he decided that Republicans won't be using the "trial lawyer" tarbrush on the Democrats this year?

I'm not sure, but they seem similar. They are a little more toned down though.

You can't really got much more exaggerated than this, so there's nowhere to go but down in terms of tone.

The Medicare pre-emptive strike isn't bad. Romney's been very, very good on the campaign trail, too, since the Ryan announcement. It's reminding me why I liked him to begin with.
