Obama campaign releases 17-minute ad: "The Road We've Traveled"

(CNN) - President Barack Obama's reelection campaign unveiled Thursday a 17-minute long video painting a glowing portrait of the president's first three years in office.

The theme: President Obama inherited one of the worst financial meltdowns in history and, despite the odds, improved the economic picture while racking up accomplishments that should make key Democratic constituencies happy.

    I have watched the film. What an excellent job! I have come to realise how easily the good memories can quickly disappear. Seeing the film reminds me really were we have been and the big steps we have walked. Brilliant!

    While stupid Bush created this huge deficit by Iraq War, and Reagan by Trickle Down "Nonsense", Obama made a lot of progress, such as passing Health Care, Fin. Reg. Reform, DADT, Consumer Protection, etc, Because of these Stocks did not fall even in this worst scenario. No Wars. Iraq War Ended. GM alive, and paid back debt, and Bin Laden Killed. What evidence you need? idiots. These are substantial evidences which corroborate. Don't they?

    Republicans, led by Mitt Romney, will continue to insist that GM did not need government assistance. Republicans will continue to demagogue about the $8 billion worth of GM stock that taxpayers still own as wasted dollars. If the people own it, doesn't that mean that it is worth something? When the stock doubles in price, the taxpayers will break even. Meanwhile, no one on the right wants to talk about the over $180 billion AIG owes the taxpayers, which has no requirements or timetable for it to be paid back thanks to a Republican administration.

    Save some money on airtime because you would need less than 17 seconds to say:

    “It will take the better part of a generation to repair the damage caused by the worst President in the history of the United States and his Republican regime of Liars, Criminals and Killers. Elect another Republican Regime and the past 3 years of moving forward goes back another 30.”
