Obama Argues for ‘New Economic Patriotism’
President Barack Obama argues for a “new economic patriotism” and touts his plan for a recovery in a new two-minute ad that will air in seven battleground states.
In the ad, the president speaks directly to the camera, and tells voters that if he could sit down with them “in your living room or around the kitchen table” to draw a contrast between his and Mitt Romney’s economic vision.
The president says his Republican opponent “believes that with even bigger tax cuts for the wealthy, and fewer regulations on Wall Street, all of us will prosper.”
“In other words, he’d double down on the same trickle down policies that led to the crisis in the first place,” Obama says.
