Obama defends campaign, says he had nothing to do with controversial anti-Romney ad

President Barack Obama defended the tone of his campaign Monday, distancing himself from one controversial attack on rival Mitt Romney by an ally but standing by his own ads and political accusations. “If you look at the overall trajectory of our campaign, and the ads that I have approved and are produced by my campaign, you’ll see that we point out sharp differences between the candidates,” Obama said. “But we don’t go out of bounds.”
