Romney First TV Ad
November 22, 2011 by staff
The 60-second spot begins with images of President Obama in New Hampshire as the democratic nominee in 2008, talking about his plans to turn around the economy.
“I am confident that we can steer ourselves out of this crisis,” says Mr. Obama in the old footage, as the words, “He failed,” flash across the screen. “We need a rescue plan for the middle class. We need to provide relief for homeowners.”
Then, the ad shows Mr. Obama saying, “If we keep talking about the economy, we’re going to lose.”
But the line, which is perhaps the spot’s most devastating moment, is also the one that seems to be the most taken out of context. In fact, at the time, Mr. Obama was referring to something that an aide to his then opponent, Senator John McCain of Arizona, had said in reference to the McCain campaign — not Mr. Obama, then or now.
In a 2008 interview with The New York Daily News, an aide to Mr. McCain warned, “If we keep talking about the economic crisis, we’re going to lose,” and Mr. Obama picked up the comment and began using it to mock Mr. McCain on the campaign trail.
