Behind the Ad: Obama's "Made in Ohio"

By Michael J.W. Stickings

(Another installment in our extensive " Behind the Ad" series.)

Who : Obama for America (OFA).

Where : Ohio -- television.

What's going on: I'll let the Obama campaign explain:

The people of Ohio know the clear choice they face in this election. OFA's new television advertisement, "Made in Ohio," features Ohioans who know just how important President Obama's rescue of the auto industry was for them, their families, and their communities. They know too how it felt to hear Mitt Romney promise to let the whole industry collapse. That is why Ohioans understand that this election is about two fundamentally different visions of an economy: between moving America forward by building the economy from the middle class out, or taking us backward with a top-down approach.

Yes, the economy continues to struggle, but President Obama has done a remarkable job, pulling the economy back from the brink of catastrophe, and putting in on the road to full recovery, by investing in America's future through such decisive actions as saving the auto industry, helping homeowners in dire straits, and injecting much-needed stimulus to spur demand and productivity. The job isn't done, but the president's policies are working, and working well. Just look at the unemployment rate, which went down in 41 states last month. Jobs are up, exports are up, and the future looks brighter because of President Obama's leadership.

In contrast, Mitt Romney is absolutely the wrong choice -- for Ohio, and for America. He'd take the country back to the policies that caused the crisis in the first place, and he'd make it even worse with plutocratic policies that benefit the rich at the expense of everyone else, particularly the middle class.

That's the choice in this election, and it couldn't be more clear.
