Bill Clinton Appears In New Ad: 'Obama's Got It Right'
Pema Levy –
Former President Bill Clinton is appearing in another Obama campaign ad, vouching for President Obama's plan to grow the economy and tying Obama to his own legacy from the 1990s. "President Obama's got it right," he says. Clinton also dismisses attacks against Obama, saying Republicans made the same claims about him in the 1990s.
"The stuff some folks are saying about President Obama sounds kinda familiar," Clinton says. "The same people said my ideas would destroy jobs and they called me every name in the book. Well, we created 22 million new jobs and turned deficits into surpluses."
Clinton advocates for Obama's policies, then asks, "Sound familiar?"
The ad will run in Nevada, Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Ohio and Virginia.
