President Obama is using only one word to describe his re-election campaign: forward. The POTUS, whose comedy bit was the talk of this year’s White House Correspondence Dinner, released a seven-minute video Monday (April 30), showing the changes he’s made since taking office in 2008.
The video begins with clips of the tail end of the George W. Bush administration, which kick-started the recession. “On the day Barack Obama took office, America had already lost 4.4 million jobs — an economic disaster, the worst in a generation,” states the video’s narrator. “Some said America’s best days were behind us, and like America, he dug deep, fought back and never lost faith in our ability to meet the challenge.”
Obama will screen the video during two re-election rallies to be held in Virginia and Ohio over the weekend, the latter of which is an important voting state for politicians. As his campaign gains footing, the Commander in Chief continues to brush off criticism from his competitor, Mitt Romney. Aides for the potential Republican nominee blasted the president for eating dog meat as a child, and have released their own campaign video tiled Broken Promises, criticizing Obama’s tenure over the last four years.
