Obama at the table - Updated

Gratefully getting to the home stretch of this endless campaign. President Obama has a new ad in a format that favors him:
The ad features Obama speaking directly to the camera for two minutes, beginning by telling viewers, "If I could sit down with you, in your living room or around the kitchen table, here's what I'd say."
Obama ticks off four main policy points -- creating new manufacturing job, expanding American energy, strengthening education and balancing the budget by raising taxes on the wealthy -- before concluding: "It’s time for a new economic patriotism, rooted in the belief that growing our economy begins with a strong, thriving middle class. Read my plan. Compare it to Governor Romney’s and decide for yourself."
Economic patriotism is greater than foam finger patriotism, which in the end is just a bunch of empty shouting. Which, come to think of it, pretty much describes everything about today's Republican party.

Update: Just found on the twitter. An announced ad that is running in Ohio on the TV. This one is more powerful, in a much different way. (Apparently scheduled to run in several swing states.)

Thinking this should be running in every state for the duration. The more I watch it, the more devastating it looks.
