More of This, Please!

What I like is when Democratic candidates fight tough and give me some indication that they hate Republican policies as much as I do. What I like is this new Obama campaign advert. I like it A LOT.

Video Description: Image of President Barack Obama walking in the walkway along the Rose Garden at the White House. He says in voiceover, "I'm Barack Obama and I approve this message."

Cut to video of Mitt Romney singing "America the Beautiful" slightly offkey at a campaign appearance in Florida in January. While he continues to sing, we cut to the interior of an empty factory, over which text appears: "In business, Mitt Romney's firms shipped jobs to Mexico." Cut to the exterior of the factory. "And China." [Sources: SEC and Los Angeles Times.]

Cut to the interior of an empty office space. "As Governor, Romney outsourced jobs to India." [Source: The Boston Globe.] Cut to a Swiss flag billowing in the breeze. "He had millions in a Swiss bank account." [Source: ABC News.] Cut to palm trees at the edge of the ocean. "Tax havens like Bermuda..." [Source: Vanity Fair] Cut to a tropical beach. "And the Cayman Islands." [Source: ABC News]

All the while, Mitt Romney continues to sing "America the Beautiful" in the background.

Cut to a black screen with stark white text: "Mitt Romney's not the solution. He's the problem."
WOW. Just wow. That is a very effective ad.

Well done, Team Obama. Well done indeed.
