President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign is releasing two new television ads that will air in nine battleground states, both of which hammer Mitt Romney for his economic record as governor of Massachusetts.

The first ad, called “Mosaic,” attacks Romney for raising fees over 1,000 times during his four years as governor.

The second, “Come And Go,” slams Romney for outsourcing jobs both in Massachusetts and at Bain Captial.

The ads reflect the Obama campaign’s eagerness to invoke Romney’s actual record as governor, a topic that Romney himself seems hesitant to discuss. The ads also both invoke the Obama campaign’s favorite slogan for attacking Romney’s record: “Romney Economics: it didn’t work then, and it won’t work now.”
