The Republican National Committee released a new Internet ad Tuesday, attacking President Barack Obama for inaccurately claiming no one on his staff accused Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney of “being a felon."

The ad begins with clips of Obama answering a question from Nancy Cordes of CBS News.

"Are you comfortable with the tone being set with your campaign? Have you asked them to change their tone when it comes to defining Mr. Romney?" she says.



The president’s response: "Well, first of all, I am not sure that all of those characterizations that you laid out there were accurate. For example, nobody accused Mr. Romney of being a felon."

The ad proceeds to play the audio of deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter conference call with reporters last month.

“Either Mitt Romney, through his own words and his own signature, was misrepresenting his position at Bain to the SEC, which is a felony . . . ," Cutter says. And the ad’s text includes the second half of her sentence “or he was misrepresenting his position at Bain to the American people.”

The screen then reads, "President Obama: Willing to ignore the truth in order to hold on to power."
