Obama ad targets Romney on untaxed Americans

President Barack Obama's re-election campaign is launching its first television advertisement targeting Mitt Romney's comments about Americans who don't pay income taxes.

The Democratic campaign argues in the ad that Romney should stop attacking others on taxes and "come clean" on his own. The 30-second spot will start airing Monday in Ohio, a crucial swing state where Romney will campaign this week.

The ad signals that Obama will keep making Romney's personal finances a campaign issue even after the Republican released a second year of information about his taxes Friday.

The 30-second ad opens with a video of Romney at a private fundraiser in May, where he told donors that 47 percent of Americans don't pay income taxes, believe they are victims, and feel entitled to government assistance.
