Hillary Clinton rolls out new ads in Texas and Ohio

(CNN) - Hillary Clinton – outspent by Barack Obama 5-to-1 on Wisconsin’s airwaves in the weeks before her Tuesday loss – debuted another new ad in Texas and two in Ohio Friday, with less than two weeks to until critical votes in both delegate-rich states.

“In Texas when there’s work to be done, talk doesn’t cut it,” says the announcer in ‘Deliver,’ over images that include a wounded veteran, a group of schoolchildren, and a pick-up truck loaded with bales of hay. “You gotta roll up your sleeves, stand your ground and deliver… In Texas, it’s better done than said, and when it’s all said and done, Hillary delivers.”

The 30-second spot seems to echo a frequent Clinton criticism of Obama: that he represents “speeches, not solutions.”

A new Clinton ad in Ohio is featuring footage of the New York senator telling campaign trail crowds that “It’s time to level the playing field against the special interests.”

The ad highlights Clinton’s plans to cut taxes for the middle class, end corporate loopholes, and help the economy generate jobs – a major concern in the Midwestern state.

The campaign is also running a 30-second spot featuring former astronaut and four-term Senator John Glenn, who recently endorsed Clinton’s presidential bid.

    At least this one isn't blatantly attacking her opponent as the Wisconsin ones were. I am curious to see what ads Obama is running in these states... CNN?

    So much for getting money out of Washington Obamites. Your candidate can't win on even playing fields of ideas, but he can outtalk and outspend his opponent on the way to the White House. By the way, what about the pledge to take fed funding in the general. Just more rhetoric I suppose.

    Hillary is wasting her money. Just like Romney was.

    See if this one gets by the mediator. I have submitted this comment about six times and it has not been allowed on.
    The powers-that-be in this country will not allow a female to become resident yet. That is why Barack was allowed to run in this election year and potentially divide the Democratic party. The country allowed Black males the vote before we allowed females to vote. History will repeat itself. We will have a Black male President before we have a female President. That is the fact, that is the desire of the male Establishment.

    there seems to be times a person can feel sorry for this woman. Maybe after she loses the nomination i'll think about it.

    Hillary steals Bills words, and John Edwards words. I do not criticize her about that but the disingenuous nature of her criticizing Sen. Obama.

    Our country should keep in mind Mrs. Clinton is in her position because she is Mrs. Clinton. Keep in mind Sen. Obama as a freshman Senator has put forth more citizen oriented legislation Than Mrs. Clinton has possibly in her career.

    Ready on day one to do what? Make decisions like going to war in Iraq? Backroom deals to create universal healthcare?

    Senator Clinton is a survivor. She has proven that she is smart, tough and always lands on her feet. You can bet she will be demanding of Washington and will shake things up. She knows the ropes and knows how to get things done

    Clinton is a proven veteran which we rally need to get this country out of the mess made by the Bush administration. She is ready with a plan to move this country forward with confidence. She definitely has the solid ideas with the plan to back them up — Obama does not. He'll spend 4 years trying to figure out the system. We've already had eight year's of inexperience in the White House. Why would we want to repeat that with an inexperienced Obama?

    Come on Texas and Ohio...we're counting on you to pull Senator Clinton into the White House.

    A vote for Clinton is a vote for a change that's achievable.

    According to the media, Obama can do no wrong. They have been fanning the fire for him, giving her no credit. If she is strong, they call her too cold and calculating. If she shows emotion, they say she's manipulating. While he goes on and on with empty narratives, she is clear and consise and decisive, but you'll never hear the media applaud her for that!
    Sure, what Obama says has merit; change. But what is he changing? He offers no specifics. And I just do not think he is seasoned enough for the political arena. He says he is against Politics as Usual–why, then, is he vying for a position that is so political explosive–spending millions upon millions and millons.....Now THAT sounds like politics as usual to me.
