In new 30-second TV spot airing in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Nevada, Ohio and Virginia, Team Obama defends the President’s energy policies and targets the GOP frontrunner.
Voiceover: “Under President Obama, domestic oil production’s at an eight-year high…. In all these fights, Mitt Romney’s stood with Big Oil.”

VOICEOVER: “Under President Obama, domestic oil production’s at an eight-year high. So why is Big Oil attacking him? Because he’s fighting to end their tax breaks.

So when you see this ad, remember who paid for it. And what they want.”
