Perhaps realizing that the president's recent comment that the private sector was “doing fine” would damage him, President Obama's campaign is running an ad in several battleground states that attempts to push back, The Huffington Post reports.
In the ad, which was not announced to the press as many others are, a narrator says that, “Mitt Romney and his allies can spend millions to distort the president’s words, but they’re not interested in rebuilding the middle class – he is.” On screen is a small image from an ad that shows the president and his now-famous quote, “The private sector is doing fine.” The image is labeled “Attack TV Ads.”
At the beginning of the ad, the narrator says of the president: “He’s fought to pull us out of economic crisis for three years – and he still is.”
A campaign official told The Huffington Post that the ad is running in Colorado, Nevada, North Carolina, Ohio, Iowa, Virginia, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania and Florida.
