Obama Goes Direct in New Ad Stressing ‘Choice’ Voters Must Make: VIDEO


The Obama campaign released a new ad yesterday which points out the choice voters must make, the NYT reports:

The ad, which his campaign says will run in nine battleground states, is different in tone from many of the previous commercials from Mr. Obama and his rival, Mitt Romney.Rather than use flashy graphics, ominous-sounding narrators or clever editing, the ad shows Mr. Obama arguing that the election comes down to a choice.

“Not just between two political parties or even two people. It’s a choice between two very different plans for our country,” Mr. Obama says. “Sometimes politics can seem very small. But the choice you face, it couldn’t be bigger.”

Watch it, AFTER THE JUMP...

Meanwhile, the President was back on the offensive on the campaign trail, Politico reports, discussing another kind of 'choice':

"Frankly, the other side can't sell their ideas so what they're going to do is distort my vision. Earlier today, Gov. Romney was at it again," Obama said as the crowd booed. "Knowingly twisting my words to suggest I don’t value small business. In politics, we all tolerate a certain amount of spin. I understand those are the games that get played in political campaigns. Although, when folks like omit entire sentences of what you said, they start kind of splicing and dicing, you may have gone a little over the edge there. But there’s actually a real choice there."
