Democrats 'thank' Romney for supporting ideas in Obama's jobs bill

The Democratic National Committee released a web video Thursday that plays a game of "then and now" with Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney.

While the former Massachusetts governor has stated his opposition to President Obama's "American Jobs Act," Democrats identified past clips of Romney expressing support for some of the ideas that Obama is pitching.

Interspersed with clips of the president proposing his plan are clips from interviews during which Romney praised ideas like infrastructure projects and a tax break for companies that hire the long-term unemployed.
