FactCheck.org Summary: That twists his words way out of context. He was referring to his proposal to cut the deficit using both tax increases and spending cuts, like President Clinton. Obama wasn’t talking about past job creation efforts, as the ad would have viewers believe. He was talking about his proposed deficit-reduction plan, not his past economic plan, and about the general Democratic approach to taxes – as exemplified by Clinton’s 1993 tax hikes.
