Former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney is out with a new TV ad in South Carolina defending his record as a job creator and hitting his fellow GOP opponents for criticizing him alongside the Obama administration.

"Mitt Romney helped create and ran a company that invested in struggling businesses, started new ones, and rebuilt old ones, creating thousands of jobs. Those are the facts," says the narrator, highlighting companies like Staples, Steel Dynamics and Sports Authority.

"We expected the Obama administration to put free markets on trial, but as the Wall Street Journal said, 'Mr. Romney's GOP opponents are embarrassing themselves by taking the Obama line.'"


On Thusday, a pro-Newt Gingrich super PAC began airing TV and radio ads in South Carolina going after Romney's career in the private equity world.
