    If you run a great campaign ad – you didn’t build that! Somebody else helped you make that ad.

    A great ad, indeed. I love the fact that he reminds us that the election is about two completely different visions of America. I agree. If Mitt is smart he too will remind us of this every single day.

    The first 12 seconds were spot on.  He then spewed Total BS.
    I still find it funny that he is using MSNBC’s “Forward” campaign.

    The president’s personal demeanor is so calming and credible, it almost distracts the viewer from the utter inaccuracy and distorted nature of his actual words. The Dem base will love this. Perhaps 1 in 20 undecideds will think to themselves, “Maybe…..”

    Gov Romney would do well to study this ad as a lesson in how to deliver a script with convincing sincerity.

      I agree. In terms of the delivery and setting, this is an unbelievably convincing ad. Team Obama hit this one out of the park.

      I have to say I agree, I saw this during the Olympic coverage and was unbelievably excited. I thought this was Obama at his 2008 best, calming, confident and convincing.
      I think your point about Romney & and a lesson sincerity is a good one. He’s not comfortable enough in front of the American people to pull an ad like this one off yet — if and when he does get to that point, he will have overcome his greatest weakness. One thing George W. doesn’t get enough credit for — the man was also an Ivy League grad multi-millionaire, but he came across as totally sincere and genuine and connected with the American people.
