Watch this new Obama campaign TV spot featuring Bill Clinton and anticipate:
- Peanut galleriers carping and taunting that 42 does it better than 44.
- Chicago delighting in having the Big Dog delivering this message. (You should see the focus groups!)
- Seeing this exact message from the former president as one of the highlights of the next two weeks.
Here’s the script:
CLINTON: “This election to me is about which candidate is more likely to return us to full employment. This is a clear choice. The Republican plan is to cut more taxes on upper income people and go back to deregulation. That’s what got us in trouble in the first place. President Obama has a plan to rebuild America from the ground up, investing in innovation, education, and job training. It only works if there is a strong middle class. That’s what happened when I was President. We need to keep going with his plan.”
