New Ads: Romney, McCain, Edwards
Edwards 'Mess' in Iowa; Reminds Voters He Was Born in South Carolina
The former North Carolina senator says his generation will leave things better for the next generation in a 30-second spot called "Mess." It will air in Iowa.
"What we want to make certain is true is that our children have a better life than we've had. Twenty generations of Americans before us have ensured that was true," Edwards says in the ad. "And if we want to do that, we're going to have to be willing to take on this corrupt system and change it. And if we're not going to do it, we're going to have to be willing to look our children in the eye and say, 'We're going to leave this mess for you.' This is the great moral test of our generation, and we will meet that test."
Meanwhile, Edwards continues to talk up his Palmetto State roots in a new 30-second spot called "Born." It will air in South Carolina.
"My dad worked in the mills. When I was born, he had to borrow $50 to bring me home here," Edwards says. It's similar to Edwards' Thanksgiving ad he aired last week.
McCain Makes People Angry
Sen. McCain speaks directly to the camera during the 60-second TV spot, called "Love America Enough." It will air in New Hampshire.
"Since I've been in Washington, I've made a lot of people angry," McCain says.
"I upset the special interests and Washington lobbyists when I passed campaign finance reform. I made the Pentagon angry when I criticized Rumsfeld's Iraq strategy. And I upset the media when I supported the strategy that's now succeeding," he adds.
McCain concludes the ad with: "I didn't go to Washington to win the Mister Congeniality award, I went to Washington to serve my country. I may not like the McCain business as usual crowd in Washington, but I love America. I love her enough to make some people angry."
Romney on a 'Stronger Economy'
Mitt Romney began airing this 60-second radio spot in New Hampshire last week. It focuses on government spending and taxes.
"I saw the potential of economic conservatism, when I became governor," he says. "Liberals wanted to raise taxes, but I cut government spending instead," he adds.
This ad is similar to a TV spot he aired in South Carolina recently.
