The video begins with a series of reports and statistics about market and job losses in the United States. A press release about the video says Obama took office “at the height of the worst recession in almost a century”. Afterwards, the video lists a variety of legislative achievements and actions he took in an effort to improve the economy. The video ends with the text “Forward” and “Join Us.”
The Obama-Biden campaign says the video will be played during the President’s campaign rallies next week in Ohio and Virginia. The video has been released days after Republican rival Mitt Romney’s campaign released an ad questioning the President’s record on unemployment, particularly in the state of North Carolina, which will host the Democratic National Convention in September.
