Obama Highlights Auto Bailout in New Michigan Ad

Obama Ad in Mich.: 'Made in America' 2/23/12

Less than a week from the Michigan Republican primary, President Obama has a new ad up in the Great Lakes State, highlighting his support for the auto bailout and promoting his support for American manufacturing.

The 30-second television ad, called “Made in America,” calls out the Republican presidential field for its position on the auto rescue, specifically going after Mitt Romney for his now infamous op-ed.

 

Showing images of autoworkers, happy families and Obama in factories, the announcer says, “But when a million jobs were on the line, every Republican candidate turned their back, even said, ‘Let Detroit go Bankrupt.’” The announcer says that Obama helped save 1.4 million jobs by providing rescue loans to GM and Chrysler.

“Don’t bet against the American auto industry,” Obama says with loud cheering in the background. He later adds, “Don’t bet against the American worker.”

The ad will go up on Friday in Grand Rapids, Detroit, Lansing and Flint markets on both broadcast and cable.

At Wednesday night's Republican debate, the auto industry was raised, with Romney defending his position, saying there was “no way” he would have let the American auto industry die off, even though he promoted bankruptcy.
