Rick Santorum has released a new ad drawing a comparison between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, and arguing the two politicians share positions on health care, the environment, taxes, and the Wall Street bailouts. Watch the ad below:

The Romney campaign was swift to counter the claims in the ad. “Rick Santorum is attacking pollsters, attacking reporters and attacking Mitt Romney," said Romney spokeswoman Andrea Saul in an email to reporters. "It is sad to see him completely lose his bearings and revert to patently false claims. Senator Santorum is at a point of desperation that he will say or do anything. It is pretty clear that he is lashing out at everyone around him in order to prop up his sinking campaign."
