Two Weeks Before Election Day, Obama Decides To Announce His Plans for a Second Term

President Obama’s been so occupied explaining why it isn’t his fault that the unemployment rate is high and the economy miserable that he clean forgot he might want to talk a little about what he would do if re-elected until today. Text from the ad:

There’s just no quit in America…and you’re seeing that right now. Over five million new jobs. Exports up forty one percent. Home values…rising. Our auto industry…back. And our heroes…are coming home. We’re not there yet…but we’ve made real progress and the last thing we should do is turn back now.

Here’s my plan for the next four years: Making education and training a national priority; building on our manufacturing boom; boosting American-made energy; reducing the deficits responsibly by cutting where we can, and asking the wealthy to pay a little more. And ending the war in Afghanistan, so we can do some nation-building here at home.  That’s the right path. So…read my plan, compare it to Governor Romney’s and decide which is better for you.

It’s an honor to be your President…and I’m asking for your vote…so together, we can keep moving America forward.
