Presidential Race Update (Charles Regnante)

The race between President Barack Obama and Governor Mitt Romney is heating up in their fight to win the White House on November 6, 2012. With a couple of weeks to go before the election, the televisions have been flooded with political television ads.

President Obama’s ads boast his accomplishments on historic health care reform, the death of Osama Bin Laden, auto-industry revival, economic growth, better relations with foreign entities, the repeal of the “don’t ask don’t tell” policy, and clean energy initiatives. Romney’s ads paint a different picture of Obama, focusing on the President’s weak foreign policy, financial bailouts, high unemployment, and falling household incomes.

Governor Romney’s ads boast how in Massachusetts he used his Bain Capital business success to accomplish creating thousands of jobs, decreasing unemployment, cutting red tape for businesses, eliminating a $3 billion deficit without borrowing or raising taxes, and signing into law job-creating incentives. Obama ads have scolded Romney on his Swiss bank accounts, controversial foreign investments, avoidance of personal tax incomes bills and his recovery plan that would cost nearly 2 million jobs in 2014.
