Obama ad heads to more states

(CNN) - A recent ad from President Barack Obama's re-election campaign will start running in Florida, Nevada and Colorado on Friday.

The spot, which ties presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney to outsourcing jobs and trying to hide a Swiss bank account, started running earlier this week in Iowa, Ohio and Virginia.

The Obama campaign will put $832,541 into Florida, $206,876 into Nevada and $101,292 into Colorado, according to a Republican media buying source.

    Geez, I would have thought he'd be running ads featuring his greatest accomplishment...Obamacare. Oh yeah, nobody likes or wants it. Hmmmm... then why did he and his lackeys force it down our throats? Oh yeah, they know what is best for us.

    So Obama shutting down NASA, cancelling our space program and paying Russia to take our astronauts to space is not outsourcing jobs? And everyone is okay with NASA's employees that handled our astronauts going to space losing their jobs so that Russia's employees can take over taking our astronauts to space and Russia gets paid by the USA. Same thing people just at a different level.

    BARACK OBAMA 2008 campaign ad: “You see, we Democrats have a very different measure of what constitutes progress in this country. We measure progress by how many people can find a job that pays the mortgage, whether you can put a little extra money away at the end of each month, so you can someday watch your child receive her college diploma.”

    “If I don't turn this economy around in four years, this will be a one-term proposition.”

    2009-2012. What President Obama delivered.
    -Median household income has declined by $4,300. .
    -Unemployment has been above 8 percent for a record-breaking 38 straight months. ,
    -Nearly 23 million Americans are unemployed, underemployed, or have stopped looking for work.
    -The labor force is now at its smallest size since the 1969 when compared to the broader working age population.
    -Federal welfare spending is up about 41 percent
    -Food stamps up 135 percent

    That's right Barack, hit em with the truth about Romney, the none American, greedy weasel who hides his money so as to avoid paying taxes while shipping american jobs overseas. What a loser this guy Romney is. You know what Jesus says, "It's easier for a camel to fit through an eye of a needle, then it is for a rich man to get into heaven" Romney wants to be just the president by title only with out any care for the American people. This Guy Romney is walking around with a glass jaw.

    For a candidate that has no real record to run on, Americans should not expect much anything else from this president and his cronies.

    Because of Mr. Obama's policies, HE is probably more responsible for the outsourcing of thousands, upon thousands of jobs than any other president or presidential candidate in our history.

    Go figure...

    Expect a barrage of personal attacks from Obama/ Biden 2012. But no plans or vision. They used all their plans up in 2009 and 2012. No thanks.

    If The General Election in November is about the economy, Obama loses. He knows that. He will spend $1 billion to distract and attack. And then he will lose.

    It is most likely an unemployment line. In January Obama can take his place at the end of it.

    Obama's record is absolutely pathetic. He will not be able, nor will he want, to run one positive ad. He will merely sling mud at Romney. Obama has been a bigger disgrace to the White House than Clinton (Bill).

    It seem funny that when G Bush was leaving the WH, no one complained about the what the Repubs did tothe economy, but as soon as President Obama takes office...at that time and only that time do they realize the economy is in shambles....The job market is up,,,so who gets the credit for that ...Mr President ..Thank You!

    Obama hangs around the rich not the common folks, he has the worst job creation record, gas prices are skyrocketing, he's paying Russia to take our astronauts to space and he is criticizing Romney? Have you guys seen the expensive fabrics used by Michelle Obama? Seriously, the Obama's should look in the mirror. Outsourcing jobs was at the highest between the 1970 and 1980's, it started before the 1950's and it was mainly due to the UNIONS, red tape, regulations and high taxes. So if anyone should be criticized for outsourcing jobs it should be the UNIONS.

    Listening to the President's detractors is like listening to Fox (News). There is no basis of fact and no sense of perspective. Fact, when Obama took office the economy was losing 750k jobs a month, now, positive private sector job growth every month. For all you Fox heads who complain about jobs, talk to the GOP. Imagine the jobs numbers if Rethuglicans haven't obstructed the infrastructure bill, the first responders bill, the school moderization bill, the housing relief bill, we would be having the jobs numbers. But GOP party sheep aren't smart enough to think about that.

    @Class warfare – The polls on ACA have been very consistent – about 40% of the population approves of "Obamacare" (as you call it) and 50% does not. However, when you look at those who don't like it, about 1/4 say it did not go far enough. Therefore, about 52% like Obamacare or would like something more progressive and less than 40% don't like ACA and would prefer to repeal it or replace it with something less progressive. Looks like your view is in the minority.

    @RealityBites – You make a good argument for never allowing the GOP to have control of the WH and Congress, as they did for the six years immediately prior to the wheels coming off our economy. What the Obama Administration (and Bush in 2008) prevented our economy from falling off a cliff and has created a slow, steady recovery.

    @Four – You are getting the Obama campaign and the GOP mixed up. I love it when your side preemptively accuses your opponents of doing exactly what you do. You may not like it, but we are unlikely to change POTUS in the middle of a fragile recovery. You better hope for a downturn – which is what your side has been doing for 3 years – rooting against America.

    Oh I'm sure some people do. However, less than 50% approve of his job performance. Get used to it.
