DNC vice chair accuses Romney of “deceit” (audio)

Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak, vice chair of the Democratic National Committee, says the basis of a new Romney ad is “factually incorrect.” 

“When I see that Mitt Romney has had a clear sail to say whatever he seems to want to say — and then, by the way, reverse the position the next day — I think the free run is over for Mitt Romney…Mitt Romney’s on my mind today because he ran an attack ad against the president and once again is basing that on something that is factually wrong. The great thing about people in Iowa is that they have a lot of different political opinion, but one thing they agree on is honest and common sense…and Mitt Romney has started his campaign in Iowa with deceit and it’s about time that we called him on it.”

Rybak just spoke at a news conference staged in Obama campaign HQ in Des Moines, IA.  He opened with comments, many of which were directed at Romney. A reporter followed up by asking why he had been so focused on Romney.  This is the AUDIO of his answer, transcribed above.
