American Crossroads and Public Equity

The Hill reports:
The Republican super-PAC American Crossroads is trying to flip the script on the Obama campaign's repeated attacks on Mitt Romney's private-equity past.

American Crossroads, the outside spending group affiliated with Karl Rove, released a new Web video Tuesday blasting the president for his "failed investment strategies" with public funds, most notably the now-bankrupt solar company Solyndra.

"Obama's attacking private equity, but what's his record on public equity investing?" asks a narrator in the video.

The attack ad came on the same day that the Romney campaign revived GOP criticism of Obama's green-energy programs.
