HILLIARD, Ohio —

President Barack Obama is accusing Republican rival Mitt Romney of running dishonest ads on the auto industry to scare voters in Ohio, saying: "This isn't a game. These are people's jobs."

The Romney ads, which have been airing in Toledo, the home of a Jeep plant, suggest automakers General Motors and Chrysler are adding jobs in China at the expense of workers in Ohio.

In his first comments on the ads, Obama says they are "not true. Everybody knows it's not true."

Obama says Romney is trying to alarm Ohioans "just to scare up some votes" in one of the nation's most important swing states in Tuesday's election.

Chrysler and GM officials say the ads are inaccurate.
