Mitt Romney's campaign released this web today, contrasting what President Obama promised with reality:

"You see, we Democrats have a very different measure of what constitutes progress in this country," says candidate Obama in the ad. "We measure progress by how many people can find a job that pays the mortgage, whether you can put a little extra money away at the end of each month, so you can someday watch your child receive her college diploma."

The video then displays text, saying, “Median Household Income Has Declined By $4,300,” “Unemployment Has Been Above 8% For A Record-Breaking Thirty-Eight Straight Months,” and “Nearly Twenty-Three Million Americans Are Unemployed, Underemployed, Or Have Stopped Looking For Work.”
