Romney Ad: In January, We’ll Feel Like We’re ‘On the Right Track’


The Romney campaign unveils a new 30-second ad:

VIDEO TEXT: “What Will Be Different About A Romney Presidency?”

VOICEOVER: “What will be different about a Romney presidency?”

VIDEO TEXT: “Day 01”

VOICEOVER: “From day one, President Romney focuses on the economy and the deficit, unleashes America’s energy resources, and stands up to China on trade. President Romney’s leadership puts jobs first.”

VOICEOVER: “But there’s something more than legislation or new policy.”

VOICEOVER: “It’s the feeling we’ll have that our country’s back, back on the right track.”

VOICEOVER: “That’s what will be different about a Romney presidency.”

MITT ROMNEY: “I’m Mitt Romney and I approve this message.”

Say, the subtle invocation of the right track/wrong direction poll number question wouldn’t be intended to align with today’s jobs numbers, would it? Today’s jobs numbers might be good news . . . but yesterday’s certainly seemed disappointing, and/or ominous . . .
