Barack's TV Ad

I live in a red state, now considered a potential swing state. So Obama is running TV ads here and I finally saw it this morning. He spends much of it speaking directly to the camera about how much he loves America. There are also lots of images of his white grandparents with talk about his Kansas upbringing and Midwestern values. In fact, I think the word values is said 5 times. Obama also talks about how he rejected Wall Street to go to Chicago to help people laid off from steel mills. There sure were lots of older white people in this ad -- very different from one he ran during our primary that featured lots of young black people. Interesting.
