In the clips from Obama’s address, the president is seen promising an economic recovery and telling voters to look to the future, interspersed with footage of analysts discussing continued job losses.
“It’s not just about how we’re doing today, but how we’ll be doing tomorrow, says Obama.
The video then cuts to a title card which reads, “Today millions of Americans are suffering in silence.”
The ad then follows with graphics highlighting headlines about weak job growth and increasing numbers of workers leaving the labor force.
The video ends with a title card reading: “This is the Obama economy,” with an audio clip of Obama saying, “That’s why I’m running again for President of the United States.”
“Yesterday, President Obama launched his campaign by telling Americans not to ask if they are better off than they were four years ago, but how they’ll be tomorrow,” the Romney campaign said in a release announcing the new video. “This follows a jobs report that found more than 340,000 Americans dropping out of the labor force and an unemployment rate that remains unacceptably high.”
