Romney's Lying Ad Ushers in Truth Free Campaigning for GOP?

If the press ever met a challenge before, this is it. Let's see who reports the truth about the following ad from Mitt Romney, and who blames both sides or resorts to "some say" relativism...like in the first sentence of this Daily News story: 
Mitt Romney … already launching his general election attack on President Obama, with a vicious -- and some say deceitful -- new ad. The 60-second spot shows Obama during a stop in New Hampshire in 2008 as ominous music plays in the background. The text "he promised he would fix the economy," and "he failed" … At one point, Obama is heard saying "If we keep talking about the economy, we're going to lose." Although it sounds Obama is talking about his chances of winning in 2012, the then-Senator was actually quoting an aide from Sen. John McCain's presidential campaign in 2008.
Andrea Mitchell and Rachel Maddow rightfully rip Romney a new one:
