(CNN) – A conservative group is seizing on the anniversary of the late President Ronald Reagan's birthday to contrast his past comments with those of President Barack Obama.
The minute-long spot from Americans for Prosperity, which will air Monday on national cable, plays comments from the two presidents back-to-back in an effort to explain their "two visions for America," according to the organization.

"We've been a little bit lazy I think over the last couple of decades," Obama says in the spot before Reagan says, "Trust that American spirit, it's still there, ready to blaze in the light."
The ad, part of a roughly $230,000 buy from the grassroots organization, ends with a message to the "Gipper," who would have been 101 Monday.
"Happy Birthday, President Reagan," the ad reads. "We miss your optimism. Your love of America."
