  •  Meh. (0+ / 0-)

    I'm glad it's a web ad and that the campaign haven't wasted money by running it in swing states. It's 2012, not 2008, Obama's President and this type of schmaltzy ad isn't likely to move anyone.

    The campaign's job is to highlight the President's domestic and foreign policy successes, not to mention the fact that he has cut taxes for the middle class and small businesses 16 times, while making Romney unnaceptable to the electorate.

    •  In contrast, Obama nailed it... (6+ / 0-)

      in his speech today:

      As Mitt Romney prepares for an introductory foreign policy tour across Europe and Israel this week, President Obama appeared before the Veterans of Foreign Wars to talk up his successes overseas.

      The short version of Obama’s speech: The U.S. military and the country’s image abroad is stronger than President George W. Bush left it. Oh, and by the way: Osama bin Laden is dead, and the war in Iraq is over.

      “Today every American can be proud that America is safer, stronger and more respected in the world,” Obama said.

      Three years of Obama’s foreign policy have left “a new confidence in America” around the world, he said.

      “You don’t just have my words,” Obama told the VFW, “you have my deeds, you have my track record, you have the promises I’ve made and the promises that I’ve kept.”

      The bulk of Obama’s speech was focused on promoting his own accomplishments, but he did take a few jabs at the opposition.

      “We will maintain our military superiority as long as I’m president and well into the future,” Obama said.
