New Obama Campaign Ad on Energy: Swiss Bank Account
“Swiss Bank Account” highlights Mitt Romney’s belief that a strong economy is built on outsourcing, loopholes and risky financial deals. As a corporate CEO, he shipped American jobs to places like Mexico and China. As governor, Romney outsourced state jobs to India, and now as a candidate for president he is pushing tax breaks for companies that ship jobs overseas.
Romney’s economic scheme stands in stark contrast with President Obama’s efforts to continue moving the country forward by rebuilding an economy that’s meant to last, by out-building, out-innovating and out-educating the rest of the world, and making the things the rest of the world buys by closing loopholes and providing incentives that are bringing jobs back to America.
President Obama’s reelection campaign is launching a new ad in three swings states that aims to contrast Obama’s record on energy policy with Mitt Romney, claiming Romney has a history of sending jobs overseas.
The campaign, with the new ad, seeks to kill two birds with one stone by parrying attacks on Obama’s green energy programs while knocking Romney’s record in business and as Massachusetts governor.
The 30-second ad that will air in Virginia, Ohio and Iowa opens by decrying “false attacks from Big Oil,” pointing to a Washington Post article Monday that called a pair of ads attacking Obama’s energy programs – including a multi-million dollar buy from Americans for Prosperity – inaccurate and out of context.
