“The Choice” – Obama For America TV Ad

“The Choice” – Obama For America TV Ad


Over the next four months you have a choice
to make. Not just between two political parties or even two people. It’s a choice between
two very different plans for our country. Governor Romney’s plan would cut taxes for
the folks at the very top, roll back regulations on big banks, and he says that if we do our
economy will grow and everyone will benefit. But you know what? We tried that top-down
approach. It’s what caused the mess in the first place. I believe the only way to create an economy
built to last is to strengthen the middle class. Asking the wealthy to pay a little
more so we can pay down our debt in a balanced way. So that we can afford to invest in education,
manufacturing, and homegrown American energy for good middle class jobs. Sometimes politics
can seem very small. But the choice you face, it couldn’t be bigger. I’m Barack Obama and I approve this message.

Good must win over evil. OBAMA 2012

  2. yes yes lets vote him so he can give the banks another 700 billion dollars and make the debt bigger and create no jobs, i will vote 3rd party, you may say i will waste my vote by i say nothing can be farther from the truth, I will not vote for 2 fake sellouts, any obama supporters please tell me why would you even vote for him im not being an ass, i really want to know why, i dont see what you see

  3. I'm just a 16 year old canadian kid but back in 08 i remember how important that choice was for america now this choice is important for the world

  4. President Obama – four more years! Romney is the "Tricky Dick" of this century! He is dishonest about his record, he has most probably, illegally, avoided taxes (won't show returns/supporting documents, causes great suspicion). Where there's smoke there IS fire. SUPPORT PRESIDENT OBAMA for four more years!

  5. love you barack!

    four more years…. im not a democrat…im just a guy who likes science and people who respect it

  6. I live in Australia and I believe that this president is really doing you Americans a favour so just vote for him (if you weren't going to already). I'm envious that we can't have a leader like that in our country right now.

  7. President Obama knocked it out of the park for a grand slam when he finished up by saying that all of Romney's ideas for fixing the economy are what got us into trouble IN THE FIRST PLACE!!!!

  8. I like how Barack Obama talks to you like an every day American. I love that quality in a President, and I believe he understands the everyday American and the struggles we face.

  9. I can't wait for the two of them to face off in the debates. Romney almost seems like a decent candidate behind the smokescreen of his campaign, but debating next to Obama he's going to look like a total fool.

  10. Nice video. Only thing about it is that its obvious Obama is look to the side of the camera, and not at the camera. Its a bit distracting and breaks the personal connection he is trying to make.

  11. I can't wait for the upcoming debates. Obama will destroy Mitt Romney.
    Obama for America
    Mitt Romney for the top 2%

  12. I'm from Canada, and I've been keeping up with American politics because this election also affects my country indirectly. I'm just hoping Americans won't make the same mistake as the 2004 elections and vote practically. Nevertheless, both candidates reveal distinct flaws. But Mitt Romney will be the peril for this country.

  13. Wow, I have to say…I am completely impressed. This is an amazing ad, as I think it really strikes the "choice" election that the democrats want 2012 to be.

    I hope both sides can do more ads like this. It's time to set aside politics and do what's best for the American people.

    I really hope that the recent tragedy in Colorado will bring politicians back a step, and understand they should be grieving for us and understanding OUR problems. Not the other way around.

  14. Man…I really wish I was old enough to vote in this election. I'll be 17 and a HALF by November…. πŸ™

  15. Australia loves you Obama (as do the rest of the world). The image of the US, rubbished under Bush Jnr, is now strong again thanks to Barack Obama!

  16. I hear a plan from Obama and no plan from Romney. All Romney has done is attack, nothing on tax, nothing on health care, nothing on education. Come on Mitt say something of substance please.

  17. Great ad. This is a choice. The Republicans will try desperately to make this election all about smearing President Obama… but that's not what it is. It's a choice between moving forward with President Obama or back to the policies that created the economic problems in the first place with Mitt Romney.

  18. Never have i seen a man aged this fast in four years. He cares too much for this country, OBAMA 2012 we support you sir

  19. I don't love Obama by any means, he's just been 'alright' as a president… but I'm definitely voting to keep him in office because Romney is so incredibly bad. lol

  20. Bring factories back to the us with incentives to companies who do it, and punish the companies who keep it over seas. Simple was to solve the job crisis. For some reason, it hasn't happend yet. The revenue the us would make, along with how many jobs would be created is good enough of a reason to do it.

  21. Do you realize that you're comparing a 8 year span to a 2 year span? Just saying dude, might want to think about that.

  22. It's funny because most of you, the people commenting on this video, don't know one thing about politics or Obama's policies. Just more victims to the media…

  23. A choice between two people? Are you kidding?

    We're not supposed to have a two-party system here in America…

    What about the other political parties? Are they not choices as well?

  24. Romneys gunna try to kick up as much dust and confusion as possible, but for those who manage to see through it, this is what it comes down to.

  25. Obama seems believable, but I already trusted him in 08. He's a good planner and organizer, but he hasn't actually made any progress. He hasn't fixed this economy. And this is coming from a democrat.

  26. The choice is pretty clear. Without this president, I wouldn't healthcare and I wouldn't be able to go to college.

  27. I just like Obama. He's a good guy. Middle class is the future.

    For the rich, how much money do you REALLY need?! It's okay if you give some back. You don't need that excess. Some people have trouble keeping food on their tables. Please have a little heart.

  28. Saw this on TV and right at 0:35 just about made me puke! Yeah it's the wealthy's fault we're all in debt up to our eyeballs… Let's remember who really spent all the money…

  29. This is such a great ad! I saw it on TV today and immediately searched it up on YouTube to watch it again! Share it with your friends! πŸ™‚

  30. This is how political ads should be. Not sensationalist, not meaningless quips, not out-of-context quotes, not an ad-hominem attack, just the candidate explaining major differences between his plan and his opponent's.

  31. How I wish I had more than two choices. Makes it feel like I really have no choice at all. Maybe in the future when technology can promote a candidate enough to leave huge financial backers out. A man can dream can't he?

  32. Why does he keep saying that Romney wants to lower taxes for the rich when Romney said over and over at the debates that he will not lower taxes for the rich.

    Does he know something about Romney's plan that Romney doesn't?
