New ad stresses Obama love of country

| | Comments (4)

This ad is playing in 18 states.

The full transcript of the ad:

I’m Barack Obama. America is a country of strong families and strong values. My life’s been blessed by both.
I was raised by a single mom and my grandparents. We didn’t have much money, but they taught me values straight from the Kansas heartland where they grew up. Accountability and self-reliance. Love of country. Working hard without making excuses. Treating your neighbor as you’d like to be treated. It’s what guided me as I worked my way up – taking jobs and loans to make it through college.
It’s what led me to pass up Wall Street jobs and go to Chicago instead, helping neighborhoods devastated when steel plants closed. That’s why I passed laws moving people from welfare to work, cut taxes for working families and extended health care for wounded troops who’d been neglected.
I approved this message because I’ll never forget those values, and if I have the honor of taking the oath of office as president, it will be with a deep and abiding faith in the country I love.

Why doesn't Obama say he will raise everybodys taxes. Also, he left out Hawaii the paradise where he grew up with his typical white grand mother. His enrgy policy will be Jimmy Carteresque no drilling, refining just rationing and conservation.
How come the ad doesn't talk about universl health care run by the goverment.It'll be just like the Post Office.
Why doesn't it mention how he'll invest our tax money in welfare programs and infrastructure.
I'll tell you why if you knew what he plans you would never vote for him. He doesn't mention his character or who his associates have been for the last 20 years.

WHY DON'T YOU STOP CRYING SO MUCH, I HOPE YOU ARE A YOUNG PERSON
BECAUSE IF YOU'RE A PARENT OF A CHILD, THEY'RE IN TROUBLE!
LEAD, DON'T FOLLOW!

Strong Kansas family ! Are you kidding ! Raised by a TYPICAL white grandmother because his father took off like a coward when he was an infant. Schooled in private schools in Indonesia and Hawaii. The most expensive private school in Hawaii at that. His ad is untrue.

I GUESS BARACK OBAMA AS A YOUNGSTER TOLD HIS MOTHER TO MOVE TO
INDONESIA AND HAWAII, HE TOLD HIS FATHER TO TAKE OFF, HE TOLD HIS
MOTHER TO PUT HIM THE MOST EXPENSIVE PRIVATE SCHOOLS!
NOW DO YOU SEE HOW FOOLISH YOU SOUND, HE WAS A YOUNGSTER AND HOW
AND WHY HE GOT TO THESE PLACES THAT WAS A FAMILY DECISION, NOT
A YOUNGSTER, LAY OFF THE STUPID REMARKS AND GROW UP!
SOUNDS LIKE YOU ARE JEALOUS OF THE EDUCATION HE RECEIVED!
