New Obama TV Spot “Promises”

This one notably includes LBJ, Paul Ryan, the word “voucher,” an AARP invocation, and the tag line “Mitt Romney, an end to the Medicare promise.”

NARRATOR: It’s a promise that was made long ago. You work hard, pay in. Your Medicare benefits are guaranteed. But Mitt Romney would break that promise, replace your benefits with a voucher. Insurance companies could just keep raising rates. Instead of a guarantee, seniors could pay sixty four hundred dollars more a year. AARP says the plan Mitt Romney supports undermines Medicare. Mitt Romney. An end to the Medicare Promise.

It isn’t spooky/scary negative, and/but the campaign says it is airing in five battleground states Saturday, and it is most certainly an initial part of an intense effort by the re-elect to inject its preferred issues and themes into a week that, under the old normal, Republicans would dominate with their convention.

Watch it above.
