SCRIPT: Obama for America Ad, “The Question”

BARACK OBAMA: “I’m Barack Obama and I approve this message.

VOICEOVER: “He keeps saying it.”

MITT ROMNEY: “This President cannot tell us that you’re better off today than when he took office.”

VOICEOVER: “Well, here’s where we were in 2008:”

BRIAN WILLIAMS: “Worst financial collapse since the great depression.”

LESTER HOLT: “American workers were laid off in numbers not seen in over three decades.”

VOICEOVER: “And here’s where we are today. 30 months of private sector job growth. Creating 4.6 million new jobs. We’re not there yet. But the real question is: Whose plan is better for you? The President’s plan asks millionaires to pay a little more to help invest in a strong middle class, clean energy, and cut the deficit. Mitt Romney’s plan? A new two-hundred-fifty-thousand-dollar tax break for multi-millionaires. Roll back regulations on the banks that cratered the economy, and raise taxes on the middle class.”

BILL CLINTON“They want to go back to the same old policies that got us in trouble in the first place.”

BARACK OBAMA: “We’re not going back, we are moving forward.”

VOICEOVER: “Forward.”
