Oxidation is tough to remove and most often it has to be done with a professional buffer and the right compounds. If you're going to do it by hand, I'd try Meguiar's Dual Action Cleaner/Polish. Use a clean terry cloth rag and small circular motion on a spot and see how it does. You'll have to turn the rag several times, as the oxidized paint will load up the rag. Let it sit after doing a small area and completely dry out for a minute. Wipe clean and see what you get. It may be hard by hand to get it perfectly even. Follo up Meguiar's Sythetic Sealant.
Hope that helps

You didn't mention the make & model and the age. What you might have is the clearcoat deteriorating which may not respond to buffing/polishing.

I think tow guy and OKC are correct, the only thing I would add is when testing a "spot", make it a larger spot. Many people rub out a 2 inch diameter area and it looks great. Try it on a 12 inch area and see if it looks good and even, then evaluate fro there.
