Four Pinocchios for Romney’s Jeep ad

The Fact Checker weighs in on Mitt Romney's controversial new ad in Ohio: 

This ad shows that we have entered the final, desperate week of the campaign.

The series of statements in the ad individually may be technically correct, but the overall message of the ad is clearly misleading — especially since it appears to have been designed to piggyback off of Romney’s gross misstatement that Chrysler was moving Ohio factory jobs to China

President Obama has put out a response ad calling Romney "dishonest." The Romney campaign appears undeterred; a version of the ad is now on the radio in Toledo.
