The Biden/Harris Campaign and Lincoln Project have released two new ads on the eve of Joe Biden delivering his acceptance speech and becoming the official nominee for President from the Democratic Party.
The first ad “What Happens Now” from the Biden/Harris Campaign discusses what hard-working Americans are going through with the difficult financial and health times stemming from the COVID 19 pandemic.
After the narrator asks “what happens now,” the ad pivots to pictures of Joe Biden and how he:
- “Knows how to lead in a crisis” as demonstrated by his administering of the American Recovery Act.
The narrator then shifts to the present reassuring the viewer that Joe Biden will rebuild the economy by focusing on:
- “first combatting and containing the Coronavirus.
- get working families back on their feet.
- lowering health care costs.
- helping small businesses recover.”
The narrator concludes with:
“So what happens now. We elect a President who will build back better.”
The second ad, from the Lincoln Project, called “Crossroads” replays segments of former Republican Ohio John Kasich’s first-day speech at the Democratic Convention where he endorsed Joe Biden.
In the excerpts played in the ad, Mr. Kasich says:
“America’s at a Crossroads…We’re being taken down the wrong road by a President who’s pitted one against the other. Many of us can’t imagine four more years down this path.”
“I’ve known Joe Biden for 30 years. Someone who understands the hopes and dreams of the common man and the common woman. A man who could help us see the humanity in each other. He knows that the path to a restored and rejuvenated America lies in respect and unity and a common purpose for everyone.”
“Joe Biden is a man for our times. Times that call for all of us to take off our partisan hats and put our nation first for ourselves and of course for our children.”
It would be nice if the Republicans in Congress abandoned the Gingrich-McConnell playbook for obstruction and actually played a constructive role in governing.
Time will tell.
