Romney and Perry exchange blows

GOP nominee hopefuls Mitt Romney and Rick Perry have locked horns once again with both releasing attack ads during the lead-up to the Nevada primary debate. These debates are really not what they are cracked up to be. (#letdown)

The duelling web videos see the Romney assault going after Perry's jobs record with a video entitled "The Facts." The ad cites a Perry interview with George Stephanopoulos as well as an article on immigration by the Washington Examiner that built on a report by the Center for Immigration Studies.

Conversely, the Perry team chose a different tact and instead creates a positive ad to give their candidate a positive aurora. They open with a Bloomberg report before cutting to a speech in which he talks of creating 1.2 million jobs.

Watch them and weep!
