An independent group with deep ties to the Democrat's re-election campaign rolls out a TV ad assailing Mitt Romney over business practices at Bain Capital _ just 24 hours after Obama himself opened the same line of attack. It?s a sign of the new world of campaign finance, where super PACs have wide leeway. (AP Photo/Carolyn Kaster, File)
